Actually, that’s just what you believe it to be.
Now, here’s MY beliefs .
- When we dream, we simply experincing a set of possibilities, made up by our sub-c to test us and improve our reactions to different scenarios.
But then why do we dream about all this weird stuff?
Simple. TV shows/movies, books, fire side camp stories. The human race has an imagination, and fiction (not just books) confuses our sub-c. It takes it as real life and so adds it into our dreams.
The reason we don’t become lucid all the time, is simply because we refuse to accept that our lives may be false. You know in The Matrix, when Neo learns that his entire life has been a ‘dream’ and freaks out? It’s like that.
When my RC’s first passed in a dream, I refused to believe it and so carried on unlucidly.
However, we (us lucid dreamer) have learnt to overcome this. We can accept it’s a dream, no matter how realistic it seems. Natural lucid dreamers probably have a more open mind about reality then everyone else.
The reason we can control things in our lucid dreams, is not because we our spirits freed from out bodies, but because we realise that what we’re experincing isn’t real, but rather all in our mind. The dream is a world, a concept, built by our brain. We can tell the dream to do soemthing differently - by expecting it to be like that - and it does. And so we can fly/run up walls/whatever.
No one but the dread knows what it’s like after you die. It may be like a dream. You may even be lucid in it.
But I doubt it.
But once again, I just wish to point out that these are my beliefs.
