"A Beginner's Guide to Lucid Dreaming"

Here is Ivan Moe’s short animated film “A Beginner’s Guide to Lucid Dreaming”.

It seems there are several ways for the individual to manage lucid dreams.  It is possible to have an intimate encounter with someone probably unavailable in real life, but it is very difficult to “choose” a particular person at will.

The filmmaker encourages keeping a private diary of the dreams.

It is possible to slip into lucid dreaming when napping during the day.

It is also possible to encounter paralysis in a deep lucid dream, as at the end of the night. The situation may seem illogical, such as the power being out in some rooms but not others. One may feel one is on a spaceship.  It is conceivable that some of these events can end in death, if you can’t wake yourself from an imprisoning situation.

Time seems to expand during a lucid dream.
But the young man, Jared Loughner, who shot Gabbie Giffords in Tucson, AZ on Jan. 8, 2011 was obsessed with lucid dreams (story by RyanHurd)
