    Dreams, notes, and other experiments to assist in achieving high-quality lucid dreams on a regular basis.

    Reality Check (RC): Action used to evaluate if one is dreaming. Common methods include plugging the nose and testing whether it can be breathed through, as well as inspecting one's hands for irregularities compared to waking reality.

    Memory Lapse (...): Where memory ends for a given stream of consciousness. For example, going to sleep in a dream and waking up in the dream later with no recollection of the sleep.

    Dream Initiated Lucid Dream (DILD): Lucid dreaming type that originates from the dreamer regaining awareness from within a dream.

    Wake Initiated Lucid Dream (WILD): Lucid dreaming type that originates from the dreamer maintaining awareness from waking near-directly into a dream.

    Wake Back To Bed (WBTB): Sleep cycle interruption technique used to achieve lucid dreams.

    Blue: Denotes regular non-lucid dream recall.

      Smashing Birthday:

      I'm at my friend JM's birthday party. There is a long table setup in a restaurant.
      The restaurant resembles one we were at during festivities from my girlfriend's sisters wedding.
      I'm working on a tapestry that is inspired by Super Smash Bros as a gift for JM.
      I go to sit at an open spot next to his left, but he tells me it is for his girlfriend BH.
      The person on the right of JM scootches over to make room so that I can sit on JM's right.

      New Old Car:

      I'm driving through a nice looking community in a new car.
      The car is older, but it is well kept. It smells like leather too.
      There are clean-looking wood accents on the doors and console.
      I'm driving to a parking garage for the community.
      I'm in a main receiving area for the community. It resembles the lobby of a fancy hotel.
      It is a large open space with a desk at the far end in front of me.
      This place resembles the facility a character was infiltrating from the book, Neuromancer.
      Later I'm leaving the parking structure and I wonder if the older car has high mileage.
      I realize that I never checked it before buying it.
      I start to wonder if I actually got a good deal or not.
      I notice some smudges on the frontside passenger door's wood trim and I rub at them with my finger.
      It mostly comes off.

      Both recorded at 7:16AM.

      This dream with the receiving area is interesting. I was recently wondering whether locations I visualize while reading would manifest in dreams or not.
      The facility location indeed has, and while the theme and tone of the situation is entirely different from the book, it is still noteworthy.

      Went to bed around 11:30PM.

      Berries with the Tots:

      I'm with JM and JV from the Tots group. We're at a store modeled after the Pokémon Centers from various Pokémon games.
      There is a deli nearby in the same store selling lunchmeat, as well as Pokémon merchandise lining shelves on the walls.
      I'm looking at some berries, and the perspective changes such that I'm using a menu to scroll sideways through the different berry options.
      There are arrows up and down to change the quantity of berries to buy. There is a price that dynamically updates as well.

      Recorded at 5AM.

      Kitten in the Kitchen:

      I'm at a house. I get the impression it is a new thing, as in somebody has just bought it or started a rental arrangement.
      There is a front door area with a kitchen on the left. There is a mudroom type area on the right. The layout is vaguely similar to my parents' old home in northern Michigan.
      I'm standing in the kitchen near a plate with some food on it. There is a small kitten near the plate, attracted to the food.
      The kitten is black and longhaired, similar to how one of my cats from childhood, Oreo, used to look.
      I pickup the kitten to show it to my girlfriend who is in the kitchen nearby.
      I get the impression the situation is a 'meet the parents' type scenario.
      I'm with my Grandma P in a bedroom area from the same house.
      She seems to be sharpening chopsticks to resell as a business.

      Recorded at 6:45AM.
