      The nose-pinch reality check was quite effective for me early in my practice. Now I just penetrate walls with my fist. Another good one is to focus on the index finger for at least ten seconds to see if its form becomes warped.

      Nothing like living out an erotic fantasy in a lucid dream. The 'father' character appears to reinforce the taboo element which can potentially make it more exciting.

      It should, in principle, be easier to spot dreamsigns involving the company of people during this pandemic.

      I am puzzled by the mysterious drones that emerged in your lucid dream. I read Robert Waggoner's Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self a few years ago and was fascinated by his concept of 'the awareness behind the dream'.

      It might seem like metaphysical woo woo at first, but there might actually be something there to be explored ...

      Why do I say this? Split-brain patients have revealed right-brain hemispheres that exhibit more awareness and cognitive abilities than a toddler---suggesting there is more to consciousness beyond the apparently dominant and analytical hemisphere that tends to employ the reductionist approach when observing reality.

      There are also intriguing cases of paranoid schizophrenia and multiple personality disorders which makes me wonder about emulations of sentient beings in dreams.

      I have also noticed that, in ordinary dream states, characters seem 'more with it' than me, the dreamer; as though they are more consciously aware and know their way around the dreamworld while I feel like a clueless zombie often getting lost ...

      ... until I become lucid, and then I notice that in that 'aha' moment my metacognition is sharp to the detriment of whatever semblance of sentience surrounds me---as though, in that moment, the dream 'movie' has come to a halt, time stands still, and dream people resemble mannequins in need of recuperation; and I wonder if my newfound state of lucidity drained the life out of them.

      And this process can always be reversed as the oneiric status quo is fluid and takes effort to stabilise; and like in a zero sum game, if I am not careful, my loss becomes their gain ...

      Yeah it was pretty crazy, I was honestly convinced I was in an alternate dimension.
      This was actually the first time I'd seen myself as a separate person. It was absolutely stunning. I hope so too, had a very 'Hollow-Earth' feel too it

      Have you dreamed of seeing yourself before? I just had one a couple days ago, but that was my first (not as much detail as you, though!). I like your new world, hopefully you can visit it again and learn more .

      Epic dream. (Your comment lured me to your page.)

      I've never met myself before, but 'd be sad if i was a meathead.

      But that catacomb city sounds pretty epic.

      Great level of details!

      The best way to fall asleep, at least for me, is remembering past dreams.
