I am still a little unclear on what lucid living is.
I can recreate the exitment of being in an LD by really looking at my real life enviroment, and pretending it’s a dream. I can look at it and say, it’s not real, but picture quality is real. I feel “all powerful”.
When you say “choose” to have an emotion, I don’t agree. What you are actually saying is “Should I choose to react and ponder upon this emotion?” It is a judgement of each emotion, and clarifying whether you want to experience it any longer.
Because, ofcourse, you can never stop yourself from feeling emotions.
Now, onto awareness. I thought the idea of the conscious was to be aware of a singal thing. It would be very very hard to take in all the information and consciously study it, compare it to stored data, and file it as you feel fit. Our sub-conscious does this for us. I don’t think that we have the mental ability to process that much information at once.
On top of this, you would have to take stored data, and reajust it to fit the new template that the current data could have created. This could involve reading, and gaining of vocabulary.
The subconscious could process this in one of two ways:
- Reanalyse all the data it has got
- Reanaylse data based on a list of data to eb reanalysed. So that when the data coems up it is reanalysed before beign submitted to the conscious.
This would contribute to the slow alteration of memory. It would also be extreamly hard to consciously do. You would have to do thsi data analysis, whiel still concentrating on all your senses.
However, it is possible to train yourself to focus on one sense, with information coming in from another sense.
Now which one is it that is lucid living?
