      Lucid "game"

      Hey everyone, I'm new here.

      I hope to major in neuroscience, so naturally lucid dreaming is of paramount importance to me. It is, for all intents and purposes, the framework which our brains lay upon the world to make sense of it - but WITHOUT the world underneath. Massively interesting.

      Anyways, I recently had a sort of lucid dream. It was very odd, and I think it merits some discussion. Basically, I started to play a computer game in my dream. Being a dream, I ended up inside the game, running around as if it was some sort of advanced virtual reality program. At this point, I achieved a sort of twisted lucidity. The thing is, I was aware that my 'game' surroundings were not real, BUT I still thought that the dream itself was real. The net result was a sort of temporary lucidity, where I enjoyed the freedom of lucidity at a sort of secondary level within the dream. I don't know if this is a common phenomenon for any of you, but I thought it was very odd.

      What do you think?

      I've had a couple of similar experiences. In my most recent, I was dreaming that I was with a group of people who were being chased by these evil people who wanted to harm them. However, from my point of view, I was aware that we, as a group, were in a dream, but I was unaware that I, myself was dreaming. In another, I was thinking to myself, "If I were dreaming, then I would do this..." and ended up exerting some control over the dream, but never actually becoming lucid.

      It's what I would consider a pre-lucid state, one where I was aware that things were out of the ordinary, but was never actually conscious.

      And good luck with your studies! It's good to hear more people are interested in studying dreams, particularly lucid dreams.
