    Did you deal with sleep paralysis yet? Usually happens when you take the WILD method. My friend who dreamed lucidly by accident because of exhaustion said demons like eat at you and you can hear it, and you don't get out of paralysis until you die in the dream. You feel it too, and it really just like..gives you a feeling of death. Scary shit.

    I've been lucid dreaming for years, and it's fantastic. You can enter into wake-induced lucid dreaming without the sleep paralysis. And the way it manifests, sleep paralysis or no, depends wildly on person. Generally you enter into lucid dreams to dream what you wish to dream, not what your brain wants to force you to :P

    Ohhhhh. Then why didn't you just say so?

    Heh, I'm fairly certain I've seen a fedora in the hats option at some point. So you want me to go off your avatar?

    I sleep WAY too soundly to remember any of my regular dreams, let alone try to have a lucid dream.

    Quick question: would a "Science Correctional Thread" for the writer's workshop be amiss? Just for those of us that want to apply correct science to our fics and share it with others, such as how a explosion or flame would react in zero gravity?

    Sure, that sounds like a decent idea. I'd say go ahead and make the thread if you reckon it'd be useful.

    You'll have it in a few minutes, then. Hope you don't mind your fedora being argyle, that's the only one they have.

    EDIT: Aaaaaaaaaaand it is done!

    So you don't always get sleep paralysis? And you can like control your dreams and everything? Cool.

    What exactly is lucid dreaming? I've never heard of it before.

    Oh, that. Aside from the stories I've already posted, not really.

    @Red; the whole point of WILD is to steer your own dreams, to dream while being conscious and use that for whatever inscrutable purposes you wish.
    @Instrutilus; I could happily contribute with something to that thread.

    But yeah, lucid dreaming. I've never tried WILD before, but I've been aware that I'm dreaming (I almost always remember them, too, since I usually think about them right when I wake up), and even controlled my dreams before. It takes a lot of concentration and my imagination often makes crazy things happen, but I've successfully altered my dreams several times. I have experienced sleep paralysis a couple times, and it has resulted in two of the most terrifying experiences of my life. For those of you who don't know, imagine waking up to discover that a very real nightmare is happening right in front of you and you can't move. Scary stuff. I understand that doesn't always happen, but it did in both of my experiences.

    Some of my friends don't understand why I don't smoke weed. I say: why would I need to? With lucid dreaming I can have just as many trippy experiences, and since I'm more sensitive than average to dopamine and endorphins, music and distance running actually make me high.

    Here.

    Something I've noticed: one of the common "reality checks" is to look at a clock or watch. Apparently, if you're dreaming then they won't look right, or display weird symbols, or whatever. This doesn't work for me. It might be that I have intimate familiarity with time and digital watches (after all, they are a pretty neat idea), but I've seen digital clock faces in dreams both lucidly and nonlucidly ("illucidly" is a much cooler way of saying that, but apparently incorrect) and they displayed perfectly normal and reasonable numbers.
