I guess it's basically a wake induced dream using hypnagogic imagery? Wish I could still do it! Oh well, I can still lucid dream pretty good towards the end of my sleep cycle.
Edit: Please bare with me, I'm new. Not to sure how I managed it, but I've put this thread in the incorrect forum. I was aiming for the dream forum hehe.edit on 20-5-2013 by JimboSliceLV because: Wrong forum
Buddha Shakyamuni often told his disciples to regard all phenomena as dreams. He used many examples, like an echo, a city in the clouds or a rainbow to illustrate the illusory nature of the phenomenal world. Dreams represent just one type of illusion. The whole universe arises and dissolves like a mirage. Everything about us, even the most enlightened qualities, are also dreamlike phenomena. There's nothing that is not encompassed within the dream of illusory being; so in going to sleep, you're just passing from one dream state to another.
