I had this weird recursive dream today. Since I only slept ~4 hours, I decided to take a nap around noon. In the dream I would "wake up", notice something wrong/inconsistent, figure out that I must still be dreaming, "wake up" from that, and so on. At one point during the loop, I realized that since I was in a dream, I should be able to control it. And I did! I made everything disappear, and started running really fast. It only lasted about 10 seconds, but that's the only "lucid dreaming" I've ever experienced.

The loop reasserted itself after that, and eventually I woke up after what felt like an entire night of recursive dreams. The clock said I had been asleep for about 5 minutes.

I've had a lucid dream as well (not yesterday it was years ago). I had been playing video games for a few hours before bed, then when I went to sleep, I had a dream I was in Qeynos directly outside the city (in EverQuest 1). I had not been playing Everquest anytime recently but that zone was the first place I saw when I first logged into Everquest oh so many years ago. As such its always had a special place in my heart.

I recognized Qeynos immediately even though it looked real rather then pixeltastic. Because I also knew Qeynos was not a real place I realized I was dreaming. I immediately did what I always wanted to do in a dream and started flying. It was incredibly kickass. It lasted a good while as well.
