      Lucid dreaming subculture

      Hi!

      I am making an article about subcultures for a school assignment, and i would like to write about lucid dreaming, and I am wondering, do you guys on DV consider yourself part of a kind of lucid dreaming subculture?

      I personally don't think we do. See, all around DV you find parents, teenagers, rock lovers, classic piano artists, religious and atheists, sports people and nerds, and many of us share totally different ideas about lucid dreaming. Some of us go more through the psychological point, others may drift to other areas, and even some of us don't really care about explaining it. Many of us use lucid dreams merely for leisure purposes, others to understand themselves a bit better, others for source of inspiration. But I think I wouldn't be wrong by saying that for most of us, lucid dreaming is just another (special) part of our lives, not necessarily our biggest purpose

      The good thing about lucid dreaming is that it never puts you aside anyone, since it relates to a kind of experience everyone can have, and many non-interested people had them too at some point in their lives. Many people that got here are simply curious ones who strike to understand the meaning of a dream, others to find comfort due their mysterious experiences, others to share adventures, and so on. Even our Dream guide team and moderators vary a lot in terms of age and stance about lucid dreaming, which benefits members to a great extent.

      At most, we can be referred as people that uses dreams as their playground

      It's pretty easy to group myself into the subculture as if it were an isolated group. The fact that not many do know about lucid dreaming in the way we do, and that it's sort of generally made to seem childish and non-fruitful, furthers my isolation and need to associate myself with the group in question.

      But seeing the diversity of lucid dreamers as its put above kind of counteracts this association. It reminds me of the "pot-smokers" out there. Several people that I know who smoke, won't claim to be pot-heads or stoners, just that they smoke on occasion. The stoner group seems to hold a grand range of diversity as well, so it's hard to classify a stoner as easily based on stereotypes. I could say the same for me- I just lucid dream on occasion. And because of the lack of stereotypes within my "group", I feel I can't fully classify. Too many differences between us individually for me to group us together.

      Perhaps in the near future, when people are more open about Lucid Dreaming and it becomes more popular and openly accepted- I'll decide to associate, but until then, there's not much of a subculture to adhere to.
