I,m concern a litttle bit about people begining to accept its existence. As you said, “people claims to have more important things to do right now”. But what would happen when they realize that they can create and live in the reality they want, they´ll probly could start thinking that being asleep is better than waking life. Our culture is pretty hedonistic, live for pleasure, work for pleasure, etc… If we can have anything in dreams, people could break comunication with each other. I mean, ¿if I can have lucid sex for example with Britney Spears every night, wouldnt that be a problem for dating real people.?
Imagine a whole world living only in their own brains, waking only to eat and pee. Conected to ourselfs, in love with ourselfs…mmm…sorry for being too negative. This sounds like “The matrix”
Virtual reality could make us insane, thats why Yoguis dont use dreams for having fun, and satisfy desires, its not the point to have powers, but to find inner freedom to them. Lucid dreaming with no spirtual objetives… ¿could be our end?.
In our days, dreams are not so atracctive for they are not real, but if they began to be experience them as real, or more real than anything, wouldnt it be a little bit dangerous?
