very interesting, but id just like to…clarify a bit in the FA discussion, i originally studied a bit on this, and talked to a couple of friends who know more about this than me, and its pretty suprising.
dreams can last however long they want to, or how long you want them to.
what i mean by this is that through practice, you can control how long you want your dream to be, or it can just coincidentally last for a long time.
im pretty sure its called speedsolving, where dreams can last up to hours, or weeks, and even up to years on end.
and heres the thing about FA’s, even if you are lucid, it doesnt matter.
the whole point of an FA is to make you think you just woke up, tricking you into making yourself think your awake.
your still lucid, and yet you dont know it.
and no, you cant control everything in a lucid dream, there are so many different factors to it, there has to be some sort of limitations. (LD gods, monsters, FA’s, Focus, etc.)
and as for getting stuck in a dream, yes.
it can happen.
i know of a friend of mine who was stuck in a nightmare for so long(he couldnt wake up) he thought he wasnt actually dreaming.
even though there were schizophrenic wanna-be black ops troops trying to murder him and his family.
in his world, it lasted up to weeks, and when he woke up, he found that he was only asleep for an hour.
also, theres a movie about a girl who finds herself in a dream without even knowing it, its called “inception”, all i know is that its about lucid dreaming, other than that i have no clue.
