"The trick is to combine your waking rational abilities with the infinite possibilities of your dreams. Because, if you can do that, you can do anything." - Guy Forsythe
That’s the quote that I’m referring to (the closure to it anyway) and I don’t think its neccesarily false but… I don’t think that there is much of a trick in lucid dreaming. I’ve been doing it since as long as I can remember, and I learn things, sure but… Imagine using an irrational mind in a rational world. All of the things you’d be able to see parallel to what you’re used to seeing everyday. A completely new perception, dreaming in the real world. It can show you the clear and concrete innerworkings of conscious things, and ideas.
Connecting to the collective without disconnecting from your waking self.
Okay so the idea here is that because you are “living” in a rational world, your perception is rational. It is exactly what seems, physical reality. But your dreams are generally the same “living” but with a different perception. The irrational, the sort of unreality. Where fantastical things can happen, and all things are based off of memory (personal or collective) and emotion, which is the core of our consciousness. And the idea is that the only way to understand “life” itself is by somehow knowing both at the same time. Which is impossible in the real world, because our bodies don’t operate that way. The closest you can come is to have a lucid dream. Your physical lifes perception put into an unreality gives you the ability to ask questions and understand….
But I think that sleep deprivation induced hallucinations give you an inverse affect. It could be said that any type of hallucinations would be bringing an unreality into a rational world, but if it is only from the lack of sleep it seems more pure, in a way. Your body is literally physically weak to your consciousness.
Imagine looking at a girl, in waking life she is just a girl who you know to be Mary and she looks like Mary. But in the dream life, she is a girl who you know to be Mary but she looks like Susan. If you combined the two together, you’d begin to understand why there is a connection between them. Literally being able to physically see the unreality in the waking life.
A pseudo bleed through of the conscious and subconscious and collective unconscious all at once.
Instead of a lucid dream, its more like my free consciousness’s perspective of reality.
