      Question Testing the relationship between lucid dreaming and physical world

      I've been lucid dreaming a long time and often wondered about the relationship between the physical world and the lucid dream world. I decided to find out exactly where I was while lucid dreaming and see if there were any physical correlates.

      So, I become lucid and remember my mission. I am in a house. I figure houses have addresses and that would be a good way to find a correlate. I go to the front door to see if the house has a number on it. It does. A four digit number. Good so far. But not much to go on.

      I leave the house to see if I can get a street name. I walk to the corner and there is a street sign. The name of the street is Veazey. Now I have a full street address. I look at a map to see if there is a street with the name Veazey. There is, and it is only about 4 miles from where I live. I decide to drive to the address to see if it looks like the house in my dream.

      The street and the houses look different than in my dream, but there is a house with the same number as in my dream. It has a realtor's For Sale sign in front of it. On top of the For Sale sign is another small sign. It says "Your Dream Home".

      Wow, cool dream & story! I'd love to try something similar to this.

      I think your subconscious is trying to tell you it likes that house

      Thanks for the responses. It really did happen. Most people do not believe me. It is nice that people here do.

      Other than this I'd like to look for a email address or phone number in a LD and then check if it actually exists. Could actually work since you see tons of email address online, your subconscious could just pick one at random.

      Wow, JJFrank, nice one.
      I'm also interested in this subject.
      In some of my LD's, there's always a beautiful park next to my house (which doesn't happen in real life because there's a parking lot on the front and roads on the back). Once i went to that park and asked a DC the name of the park and he said the name of it and being in my city. But in real life i have no such park (or i didn't search enough). Next time i have to explore it more.

      JJ this is the most amazing story I've heard so far this year! I also think your subconcious must be telling you to buy the house;p Do you recall ever driving by it? I read somewhere that all the characters we see in our dreams are people we have seen before, does it apply to places too? I wonder about this because for as long as I can remember I've had a set of locations, maybe around 20 of them in total, when my dreams take place (lucid or non lucid) and I don't think they are real places I have seen in waking life...

      This reminds me somewhat of Robert Monroe's division of the different planes of consciousness into "Locales".

      There is Locale I is the physical world, although encountered "Out of body".
      Locale II is a different world entirely, or series of worlds.
      And Locale III is very similar to our world, although different in many respects. It is like a parallel world. What is fascinating to me is that locale III fits the bill for so many dream encounters. I don't yet know what the significance is but it is interesting. The multiverse theory in modern physics may indeed be correct, and perhaps our consciousness can drift in and out of some of these worlds through different means. The million dollar question is to find out how one could definitively determine whether Locale III is an actual parallel universe or a kind of misfired painting of our own world, if one is so inclined. Little hints like you mention could be quite telling. Thank you for sharing!

      This is such a great experience!!! Next time I get lucid, I'll try to find a place and see if it exists in real life... exciting!

      Antoinette,

      I am fairly certain that I never drove on Veazey Street before the dream. It was in a part of the city that I never go to. It wasn't a main street, but a small side residential street.

      I agree with you that most of my dreams are manufactured by my imagination out of images in memory that are combined in mysterious ways. I often have dreams of a street I used to live on but the neighboring houses are always different than the ones that were there. Not sure why the brain puts things together that way.

      JJ
