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

    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.

    Legend

      Chill Hell:
      I'm in a mall-like building. There is a large aquarium in front of me. My Mom is with me and a group.
      We see a set of stairs going down, and I know that it leads to Hell.
      But I also know that Hell isn't as bad as we've been led to believe.
      ...
      Later I've gone down the stairs to explore. There is a sort of sitting area.
      It's sunk-in, the same style I've been looking for in a house.



      Guess all my friends are gonna be here anyway.

      Splinter:
      I'm walking a puppy with my girlfriend down a neighborhood sidewalk.
      There is more grass than there is in waking life. More like the neighborhood I grew up in.
      The puppy looks like a german shepherd. I reflect that we didn't end up getting an aussie.
      I notice that the puppy is wandering around on the grass nearby. Maybe he has to poop, I think to myself.
      On closer inspection, my girlfriend finds a splinter in his paw and then removes it.
      The puppy has since changed into a pug, but it doesn't raise any sort of alarm in us.

      Rings:
      I'm in a grassy area, and I may have just emerged from a cave.
      There are tall rock walls all around. The area feels serene.
      I become aware that this is a video game.
      My girlfriend is here. She gestures to an item in front of me I can pickup.
      The item is in a green glowing circle: an object I can obviously interact with.
      It's a wedding ring. She is proposing.
      The ring is a tiny thing. Thin and wooden, like a splinter.
      I obviously accept it and move to put it on. I'm not concerned about how much she spent on the ring.
      But, I am focused on making sure she knows that I don't mind.
      I'm embarrassed because I have to ask her which is the ring finger.
      I vaguely think about how this is gender role-reversal. It doesn't bother me much.

      Vows:
      I'm getting married to my girlfriend.
      We're in a small-ish hall with chairs setup to face the altar. Standard setup.
      But I've just realized that I never wrote my vows. Panic.
      How did I forget? Isn't that something the wedding planner would remind me of?

      Odd Jobs:
      I'm approved on a trial-basis to work for one of my coworkers, N.
      The gig is 'odd jobs' such as carrying furniture for people, or giving rides home to drunk people from bars.
      I'm in a camp-like area with a central mess hall for group eating. It reminds me of band camp a little.
      White glove-like symbols are marked over doors, indicating potential jobs.
      There is a sense of secrecy to it.
      The other people in the work-group are mechanic-types and long-established in the work.
      I'm a new-comer and feel isolated, especially since I'm the only non-blue collar person involved.
      Standing in a parking lot area behind the mess hall, I get a text from N "you in? send a profile pic!"
      ...
      Later I'm in a park-like area. Mostly open grass, but a concrete structure within it.
      I'm inside the concrete, resting. It's a cylindrical shape so I can lie down. My hands are cold against it.
      My sister comes and finds me, now asleep. My perspective has shifted. I see myself sleeping with a smile on my face.
      ...
      Then I'm in a car, still with the perspective shift. My sister is taking me somewhere.
      ...
      I'm at my Great-Grandma's/Grandma M's condo. My brother and my sister are running a sort of party.
      My brother has set up some computer monitors, with one mirroring the other successfully.
      I'm somewhat impressed by this.

      How 'bout those Chiefs?:
      I'm in a hotel room, hiding off to the side by the entrance.
      Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce are in bed together 'celebrating' the Superbowl win.
      I'm stressed out that I'm going to get caught.
      I decide to come out from behind the wall and admit that I don't know how I got here.
      There is a tall, regal looking red alien in front of me. There is another off to my left. That one seems to be observing Taylor and Travis.
      The aliens are wearing robes, and have mostly human features, minus their elongated heads and red skin color.
      They would have fit in with Marvel's depictions of green and blue aliens from Guardians of the Galaxy.
      The alien near me says in a deep feminine voice "When you became lucid in your world, you came to our world."
      This triggers me to do a nose reality check.

      I become lucid...but the dream fades.
      ...
      I false awake and tell my girlfriend about the red aliens.
      I've lost lucidity.



      The Red Alien.

      Nostalgia Band:
      I'm in a highschool gym at indoor band practice. I'm a senior who will be graduating soon, so feeling nostalgic.
      I walk over to our saxophone cases and join the group. I feel the familiar rush of uncertainty.
      Where are we going? What are we doing? Gotta do it fast!
      ...
      I'm with the same group, this time outside. We have our instruments and backpacks.
      It's a grassy mountain hike, spiraly.
      I see PK, a senior from my 2nd year. He is talking about burying time-capsules for future years.
      There are already a lot of time capsules buried in the ground waiting to be opened.
      ...
      We're in a large, cylindrical, dimly lit room now. There are pictures of previous band members along the wall.
      My brother's picture gets pointed out. It is his picture from 1st or 2nd grade.


      Sunny Day Lucid:
      I'm in my childhood neighborhood on a sunny day.
      I'm running through the backyards, with the grass being typical vivid dream green.
      I have a sense of urgency to get somewhere soon.
      There are some horses up ahead, stabled at somebody's house.
      I'm on a garden path moving toward them. I try to leave the path to avoid alerting the horses, but I can't.
      I eventually pass by them without a problem.
      I stop and stand still, realizing that my childhood neighborhood and sunny days are some of my top dreamsigns.
      I perform a nose reality check and I can breathe.
      I check my hands and I have 4 fingers and a thumb. That's strange, shouldn't they be off in a dream?
      I keep checking my finger and nose, and eventually
      conclude that I must be dreaming.
      I try to summon somebody, but it doesn't work.
      I feel the dream start to fade.

      Sneaky Crabs:
      I'm at a party at somebody's apartment, sitting at a desk with a laptop in front of me.
      My coworker J from the lab is here. I noticed that I'm not wearing pants and feel nervous.
      ...
      I'm at my second Arizona apartment, and there is a group crowded around the TV playing a game.
      I watch the screen for a bit. It is a dark area, with tiny crab monsters all around.
      The player needs to navigate a dark pathway forward while avoiding the crabs.
      I brag that it looks easy. Somebody calls my bluff and hands me a strange controller.

      The Zoomies:
      I'm at my friend D's apartment. He is holding a large chonker of a cat, and is about to weigh it on a scale.
      He has a boyfriend that walks out of their bedroom. I don't recognize him, but I'm happy for D.
      I smell something like a fish smell.
      ...
      I'm at a Coney Island diner with some people.
      We're talking about how times have changed, how the last generation "had it simpler."
      There is some discussion about time-travel.
      I ask my brother nearby if he can smell fish on my breath.
      He says that it smells fine.
      ...
      I'm at my current home with my girlfriend. We're cleaning up the house.
      Parts of the house are torn apart, with walls revealed that generally are covered up by furniture.
      There is some discussion about a concert with my friend M.
      ...
      I'm in the front driveway area, but there is an overhang with a carport.
      I'm surprised to see that my Grandma P is coming to visit.
      She's parked in a large SUV and waiting for me to come say hi.
      But when I approach, her and the car are gone. Her voice is now coming out of a PA system connected to the carport.
      She directs me to pickup a nearby hose, and try to control the jet setting on it with my mind.
      I successfully do this, controlling the water flow.
      ...
      I'm at a park on a sunny day. There is a field of grass and several small ponds up ahead.
      We have a golden retriever/australian shepherd that looks about a year old.
      It is running around so fast that it makes airplane-like noises as it passes us.
      The grass deforms strangely as the dog moves over it.
      For some reason, I make the estimate that it is running around 30MPH.
      I worry that the dog will go into one of the ponds and get dirty.
      So naturally, it does. The dog is now covered in mud and looks excited about it.



      Big Fast! Much Zoom!

      Fragment:
      Brief recollection of being on a mall floor, assembling a snowman decoration.
      The decoration is in two pieces, with a central pole connecting them.
      The two pieces need to be pushed together to make a three-snowball snowman.

      Sci-Fi Rejection:
      I'm in a futuristic house with two levels.
      I've completed a nose reality check, and
      become lucid.
      I'm trying to start spicy content with a girl nearby, but she isn't interested.
      I lose lucidity.

      Flight Over The Forest Chasm:
      I'm in a forest with giant trees, standing on a leaf.
      The leaf is strong enough to support my weight.
      The setting reminds me a bit of my childhood front yard, but sized up (or with me sized down).
      Out of habit, I perform a nose reality check and
      become lucid.
      In front of me, I see a large chasm. I decide to fly over it.
      I make it to another leaf across the chasm without issue.
      I start to think about whether I should stabilize.
      But I lose lucidity shortly after.

      Coding with J:
      I'm with my Uncle J in a covered parking lot area outside a Barnes and Noble bookstore.
      He's praising me for finishing a new fantasy book I had just bought.
      He hands me a new red book. It has instructions for learning to code using the 'X' social platform.
      The pages have colored-coded code with brackets and guides. I remember that I read up to page 5.
      The pages have moving images, so it isn't strictly print. It claims that all kinds of media can be coded into the platform.
