      Always, no sometimes think it's me,
      But you know I know when it's a dream
      I think I know I mean a yes
      But it's all wrong
      That is I think I disagree

      He complained of spontaneous stomach pains the night of, but had no recall of what happened.

      So, no. Not confirmed.

      Dreams are meant to be used to create ideas. And hopefully, plant the seed of this idea, to another. Which will help build, a very powerful nation.

      I don't.

      The ground moves under me. As my lucidity increases, my DC body disappears. So, with no "legs" on hand, the best way I've found to move around is to have "around" move for me. So, I guess the world is amblin' past me whenever I care to explore my dreamscapes.

      Not so grand, I think. For me it's movement based on perception and, strangely, simplicity; no warps, no bossing. After all, even when walking about in waking life, couldn't you consider that you're standing still, and the world is simply passing you by? Especially if your body is not part of the formula? Try it sometime; it can be very relaxing.

      Walking itself is a physical motion dictated by our need to follow physical rules in waking life. When you think about it, it's a very clumsy activity, amounting to little more than knocking yourself off balance and catching yourself before you fall. Over and over. Allowing the ground to do the work in the dreaming, because it can, seems a graceful solution to me...

      OK, I'll play. How do I like to travel on land? I change my routine based on the dream, but here are a few odd examples.

      1) Spider climbing. I love the speed and grace of climbing a building at top speed and ease. I just "know" my hands will find the next hold, and i virtualy throw myself up the building like I am weightless. After perfecting this move. Spider climb on a horizontal surface, by changing the direction of gravity. You are sitting in a field, for example, and decide to move swiftly across the landscape. You reach out in the direction you wish to go, and using hand gestures like spider climbing, you kind of throw yourself at top speed over and over.

      2) I will recreate the feeling of easy movement like ice skating. I travel rapidly and smoothly on some flatter surfaces by skating here and and there. I do not create a winter scene; I just skate across any terrain. I can very the stride to create either a fun and casual slow skate similar to ice skating, or I can cover huge distances in just a few gestures.

      3) For straight terrain, such as on a long boring street in a dream city, I will sled. This is done again by changing the direction of your own gravity. I lay on my back and look over my chest at the scene out in front of my feet. I change the gravity so that every surface is now slanted and down is always the way i am choosing to travel. I sled on my back, feet first down city streets and watch the effects my brain creates out of the lights flashing by. I think my speed has normally been only about 35 mph.

      I wonder how many people have much combat in LDs? It has never occured to me to worry about how well any thing would do in a fight. I rarely have conflict in LDs. I have had lots of game like combat dreams, and they all seem to have been based on a ground format. I love all sorts of flying, but that would be a new thread.

      So modest and matter-o'-fact.

      No room for embellishment or shenanigans here folks. XP

      Keep on knowledgin' it up, Sagey my man.

      Now this is some cool stuff. The combinations of abstractions needed to pull those travel methods off without running into associative bleed is a testament to your level of control. If such a thing could be argued to exist.

      It might be more accurate to say your understanding is further along than most folk. Which is still damn nifty.

      It's fairly common, from what I've seen. I try not to pursue it these days, but I frequently find myself in those sorts of situations anyways. x.X

      Since I was a kid, even in non-lucids, I've manipulated gravity while traversing interiors, negotiating which ever is the most convenient surface, or negating gravity altogether and moving by intent. Not a method I'd ever use in a open environment of course. I do rather like Sivason's ice skating method.
