ever had a lucid dream?

i've had a couple. they're very odd, it's a very dynamic state... once i have the "this is a dream" revelation it's very difficult not to just snap out of it and wake up.

anyway, this could be viable or complete bullshit, but i thought i'd mention it.

i have somewhat regular lucid dreams. its nice!

that device is crazy, very sci-fi, if it works.

on the other hand, it could wind up being as silly as this:

I started reading a book about lucid dreams as a teen...I always meant to go back and re-read it, it was really interesting. That machine is freaky..it would be cool on some levels if it worked, but it would also be a little creepy and disconcerting...mind control.

I love my ability to lucid dream. Except, as you say, when you realize you're dreaming, and want to stay in the dream, but you know you're dreaming... sometimes it's hard. But I've gradually come to handle that better, and stay dreaming.

The challenge then becomes to stay dreaming - and still enjoy the dream. Because when you're dreaming and conscious of the fact that you're dreaming... well.

On the other hand, it's great for those dreams where something happens where you'd normally wake up - ie, you're about to die i-dream right before accomplishing some crucial task or getting some bit of information - no, I still haven't died in a dream, but I end up kind of shifting the circumstances enough so I don't die (continuing to dream after you die in dream is the sort of paradox my mind longs to break, though) and can continue doing whatever.

Dreams fascinate me pretty endlessly. ;)
