i don’t know if this has anything to do with it but…
well last night in HI i saw one of my RL friends, and since i was kinda MILDing although half awake i asked him if i was going to become lucid, and he said “oh, totally”
now i noticed that with my friends i could visualize them almost perfectly, and even match the voices perfectly, so i cycled though all the friends i hang out with a lot and did a bit of a MILD/CALD, although with real people.
I’m going to keep trying this because i feel it might go somewhere, i suppose it is a variation of CALD
if you havn’t created your character to the teeth, try using real life people you are around a lot!
Anyway, like i said this method will require further testing but hey, last night was the first night i had good recall in awhile.
