i really need your help on that one. How lucid are you when you lucid dream ? We could use a scale from 1 to 10.
Can you remember your name, the current date, that you’re in a bed sleeping, everything you did yesterday, today’s upcoming events ?
Is the you of the dream a continuous version of your waking self?
Or, instead, is your lucidity only partial ? If so, how much partial ? What do your dream self lacks compared to your waking self ?
Little background to understand why i need your insight :
- i’ve probably never been really lucid,
- i often had false lucid dreams during the past years, where my subconscious “knows” that the dream is a dream, but i’m still not conscious.
- i had read a research paper which stated that lucidity comes from very brief laps where your conscious takes the lead of the dream and orients the plot.
- i kind of remember that most lucid dream literature agree on “lucidity levels”, that some lucid dreams are more lucid than others.
Now, based on this, i had concluded that lucidity may not really exist,
and that people usually carried their intention into their lucid dream for their subconscious to do the job.
