Recently I have watched
The 13th floor
Howls moving castle
Some which I have seen before but wanted to remind myself of though today I watched “waking life” the film recently and I have been fumbling over these thoughts that if it is to do whatever you like in a dream to totally realise that a sleeping dream is a dream only and can be anything you like it (attaining lucidity) then you could do whatever you like and join whatever force to another,
could you then realise it is a dream and lose the ability to not need to go through the processes most people check to see if it is a dream?
I only ask as I feel but don’t know fully that I am lucid or not lucid as no one can look inside my head/dreams and check whether I am having one.
But only a person can find out through me discussing what happens.
I remember when I was 10 and knowing or awaking to find that in my dream I was flying and think that was great and at that time considered everyone to have the same similiar experience.
(this idea was when I used to sit for breakfast with my sister and my dad and tell each other what dreams we had last night)
But now after a lengthy time period for me I feel like many people do have good dreams without realising they are making it up but very few realise the extent of their own creativity of a dreaming world.
With this idea I feel now when I am having a flying dream or having a dream where I am part of a group there could be no difference in the sense as I am experiencing a dream with no control I am still aware of it as a dream and the actions I make in the dream come sudden and with no control from me,
(i tell myself that with no control means I am not lucid)
then if I learnt to lucid dream before I knew what a lucid dream was surely the act of having no control could be an act of having fun with the lack of no control, almost as if when IRL are playing a computer game you explore a world you can’t physically change but you have a view and series of controls and you decide how much you want to use those controls.
This summary has led me to this question “could an advanced dreamer/LDer been enlightened in a dream?”
I of course I am not saying I am enlightened but as such been in a enlightened state is, would that state be a lucid dream
