Question: I’m a high school student and I’m intersted in lucid dreams.
I have a lucid dream like once a week or two weeks. I found some facts on lucid dreaming and I would like to share with others.Firstly, even though I can control a lucid dream, I can’t control people in the dream. In my opinion, we don’t know fully about a person, so we can’t have full version or image of people in the dream, and I found out also that we have to find people in a lucid dream. People are spread on the field(background or stage) of the dream. Other than that, there are several themes in my lucid dreams. For example, if my dream starts with a coastal area, then it flows in that coastal area. I can change the theme but it’s very difficult to control it. I said I can’t control people in the dream, but I found that I can control other creatures, even new ones. Once I realise that I’m dreaming, I never hurry to control my dream as when I do this my lucid dream will end. I can’t find out the reason for end of lucid dreams. I had several experiences about dreaming straight into lucid dream. It feels like a paralyzing nightmare, but it’s the stage where I set the basics of my dream theme.Today, I just had a dream, not lucid dream. But I realised something.I saw a famous comedian in the dream, and I noticed something with my reactions. Usually, we are excited or show interest when we meet famous celebrities or singers or whatever. But I found that my reaction in dream was “Oh, he’s famous comedian,
ok.” (He was working in a restaurant). My reaction in reality should be “Oh, Look here! A famous comedian is working in the restaurant? Oh my god, I should get a signature.” It shows that there are a few differences in reactions in reality and lucid dreams. I’ve been studying psychology and there are topics about brain functions. The left brain is functional in language, and the right brain is functional in images. The corpus callosum is acts like chains between the two brains and when it is damaged, then there is no connection between the left and right brain. I got an idea to relate the corpus callosum with reactions in lucid dreams. There were several tests about reactions of people who damaged their corpus callosum. Reactions in lucid dreams shows some similarities with the tests. To conclude my opinions, I think there is a relationship between the corpus callosum and lucid dreams, like the function of the corpus callosum is not activated during lucid dreams because the corpus callosum is in sleeping mode. Hi Bae,Thanks for sharing your experiences and your ideas! It sounds like you have a pretty solid grasp on lucid dreaming, and that will certainly be a useful tool for you throughout life.It’s so exciting that you’re learning a bit about psychology in high school and that lucid dreaming was brought up in that context, it’s not typically included in high school curricula. What’s even more exciting though is that you’ve taken such an interest and an investigative mindset, setting out to inquire and form your own ideas.Again, thank you for sharing with us. Please return if you have anything else to share.Warmly,JordanEYSD Editor
