The weird thing is, when I become aware in a lucid dream the first thing I try to do is stay calm. It is very hard to do, because it's like being in
physical reality- with no physical or social law. You just wanna go nuts and experiment.
Strangley, in my lucid dreams two weeks ago, I referred to Laberge and Rheingold's book during the dream. I also recalled an internet article I read
about 90% of lucid dreams being used for sexual gratification. The next lucid experiment I will try if I'm able to recall the memory is to
demonstrate arithmetic operations on a written surface. I heard you cannot comprehend symbols in a dream, but these lucid experiments are so real.
Through lucid experimentation you can construct physical simulations and experiments. This is the most fascinating part of lucid dreaming to me. If
we sleep one third of our life, and dream a quarter of our sleep, that means I can convert an additional 1/12th of my life in to productivity time
available to my existence. The time I take from family and work to experiment, can now be performed while asleep.
If you're at all interested in this and don't want to bother reading any books about it, here's how to get started. I use a laptop, but you can use a
notepad. Leave something by your bedside to scribe. Anytime you wake in the middle of the night, you will most likely recall a dream. If you go
back to sleep without recording it, you'll most likely forget it. If you write down all you recall, you'll refer to it later and it will trigger
memory. A brief reference to your dreams will create some type of symbolism. You'll start to recognize symbols in your dreams, and then in your
dreams you can become aware you're dreaming. Wala, you're lucid. Sky is the limit.
