      To test that theory, Gackenbach conducted a 2008 study with 35 males and 63 females, and used independent assessments that coded threat levels in after-dream reports. She found that gamers experienced less or even reversed threat simulation (in which the dreamer became the threatening presence), with fewer aggression dreams overall.

      "What happens with gamers is that something inexplicable happens," Gackenbach explained. "They don't run away, they turn and fight back. They're more aggressive than the norms."
      Levels of aggression in gamer dreams also included hyper-violence not unlike that of an R-rated movie, as opposed to a non-gamer PG-13 dream.
      Too right, those are the best kind of dreams!

      "If you look at the actual overall amount of aggression, gamers have less aggression in dreams," Gackenbach said. "But when they're aggressive, oh boy, they go off the top."

      That ability to shape the alternate reality of dream worlds might not match mind-bending Hollywood films such as 'The Matrix,' but it could provide an edge when fighting nightmares or even mental trauma.
      What are these guys talking about? Lucid Dreaming >>>>>>>>>>> The Matrix

      The two groups have also demonstrated a high level of focus or concentration, whether honed through lucidity-training activities, such as meditation, or through hours spent fighting virtual enemies to reach the next level in a game.
      Ahahahahaha, I love that they just compared meditation to obsessive video game playing. It is true that both require a fair amount of patience/focus.

      This makes me want to play more video games...
