Lucid in the sky with almonds

Posted on Friday 6 October 2006

So as part of the assignments for “Computers for the rest of you” with Dan O’Sullivan I have been investigating sleep and dreams and the many ways to sense that a subject is indeed dreaming during their normal sleep cycles.

As part of my research, I have stumbled onto a term that I haven’t heard for a while and thought was long dead as an idea. Lucid dreaming. As a result I have been doing some reading about this phenomenon and it seems there are many people pursuing this practice of dreaming and being fully aware/ in control of the dreams.

Here is a link for some sort of product to induce the awareness that predicates Lucid dreaming. http://www.wellnesstools.com/dreammaker.php

Another site offers some research, writings and books on the subject… whether this is considered serious science I don’t know. I would like to see if there are any articles in the university library at NYU or on any other campus.

So, I have to decide what kind of sensors are going to detect the REM stage of sleep that accompanies the dream state in sleep.
