    For those who dont know, lucid dreams are when you are dreaming and realise it so you can do absolutely anything, fly, read minds, smash walls, with no consequence.

    So here is a interesting question: if you had a lucid dream, what would you do?

    I personally would do some cool Matrix fighting :D

    I have those sometimes... other members of my family never do, and my mom thought I was making it up. I only just read about it after seeing Vanilla Sky and googling them. Usually I only walk through walls and fly (Hancock-style, believe it or not. Which has been the case since before the movie came out).. the basics, you know...

    They're really cool... I wish I had them more often; Although, it depends greatly on what music I listen to as I'm sleeping (funnily enough)

    If I could do anything? I don't know.. the funny thing is that when I dream my priorities are different so what I want now wouldn't necessarily be what I'd want in a lucid dream..

    Apparently you can train yourself to increase the odds of having them. Wiki article

    I'm trying a few of them myself. I figure, as long I'm asleep it's not wasting time, right? :D

    Yeah, I read the Wikipedia article today, I am interested in this and this as they are easy, quick, and proven. It seems all you have to do is wake up in your REM cycle and keep yourself aware while you fall asleep and hope for the best!

    I am gonna try FILD tonight with the water method and see how it goes.

    LOL, very true :D

    I lucid dream most nights, usually I just wonder about where I find myself and look at pretty things. Sometimes they can get a bit full on or scary, I find I can just struggle out of them if they do though.

    Completely agree. I was just going for the whole espionage-adventure thing. Then we'll finally know which spy is the best.

    Ha, true. I'm pretty sure Matt Damon would win though. I still vote Chace Crawford, lol.

    Enjoy them. Once the point is realized that it is a dream, physical laws are out the window. I like Jedi aspects of the dreams as well.

    Is a lucid dream like a waking dream?

    A dream so "real" it seems like you're awake and not dreaming. :eek:

    Basically, yes, coz you have to do things so you know your actually dreaming, but you can do things like flying etc.

    I'd say it's the exact opposite. A waking dream is very real and uncontrollable and is often unpleasant. A lucid dream is a dream where you are fully aware of the dream, you have full control of your world.

    They are similar in the sense they are vivid and seem real unless you find some way to find out its a dream.

    For the past few mights I have had lucid dreams where I am about to fall of a cliff... It became lucid because I thought "hold on, this happened before, its just a dream, and since when did I spend time hanging off cliffs anyway", unfortunately, coz of how scared I was (adrenaline causes dreams to end) I woke up sweating! I jolted up, too, and had a physical feeling in my feet they just slipped off a surface!

    I am gonna try this in the morning as soon as I wake up, but in the state when I am half-asleep half-awake
