    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.

    Purple: Denotes lucid dream recall (formerly Orange).

      Based on this and the last WBTB attempt, it seems like 6hr/10m might not be the optimal WBTB configuration for me. I think I'll stick to it for experiment #4 to finish out the original plan though.

      Went to bed at 11:30PM.


      I'm at the Darkmoon Faire from World of Warcraft.
      I'm playing as a Night Elf. I'm bragging to the other players around me about something.

      Recorded at 5:30AM. Near the end of sleep cycle 3.

      Scorpion Trap
      I'm at some sort of manor, and I'm together with my ex-girlfriend H.
      I find it strange that we are together again, but not enough to make me question it further.
      We are standing in the front yard and it resembles the side-entrance from highschool (P) but with concrete steps going up.
      There is a man up a story telling us about a device.
      The device is a way to capture or deal with scorpions.
      I remember looking back at H and thinking she looked kinda hot with her short blue dress on.

      Recorded at 5:30AM. Near the end of sleep cycle 3.

      Woke up 6 hours after going to bed as planned. Felt very well rested. Almost decided to just stay awake. But I want those points. So I took the Galantamine 8mg to stay consistent with my experiment parameters and reviewed my go-forward for the lucid. After 10 minutes I went back to bed.


      False Awakening
      I wake up in my bed and do a nose-plug RC out of habit.
      I'm lucid now. I try to move my hands forward to do a hands RC, but they feel very heavy.
      I struggle against this weight, but I can't overcome it.

      Recorded at 7AM. Early in sleep cycle 5.
