Lucid Dream

October 3, 2010 § 4 Comments

A lucid dream, in simplest terms, is a dream in which one is aware that one is dreaming. The term was coined by the Dutch psychiatrist and writer Frederik van Eeden (1860–1932).

A lucid dream can begin in one of two ways. A dream-initiated lucid dream (DILD) starts as a normal dream, and the dreamer eventually concludes it is a dream, while a wake-initiated lucid dream (WILD) occurs when the dreamer goes from a normal waking state directly into a dream state, with no apparent lapse in consciousness.

Lucid dreaming has been researched scientifically, and its existence is well established.

Scientists such as Allan Hobson, with his neurophysiological approach to dream research, have helped to push the understanding of lucid dreaming into a less speculative realm.

So… i am wondering. What if someone never wake up from a lucid dream? He will always be a spectator of his fantastic life? Because now his life is a dream and he will never wake up.

    Hey – nice post. I think there’s a difference between being an endless “spectator” and endless “participant.” As opposed to regular dreams, in lucid dreams the dreamer has an active role in shaping the dream. Therefore, an endless lucid dream might be something a little more than what real life is right now. Manifestations happen instantly in lucidity, and there are no limits. An endless lucid dream might be something like what god the creator experiences.

      Nice approach! When you re a “participant” it is more difficult to understand where the dream ends and where reality begins and vise versa.

  • Dreams can translate and fade into the real world, as easily as the real world can translate and fade into dreams.
    “Never wake up”, depends on how it’s defined.
