With an aim towards understanding the extent to which lucid dreams differ from non-lucid dreams in other ways than obviously whether or not the dreamer knows it is a dream at the time, we have designed the following simple study.

Few people relish going to sleep as much as Stephen LaBerge. Little wonder, considering that his dream adventures include jumping off mountains, soaring over distant planets and cruising the sun. While asleep, he says, he can do such things as embrace scary monsters, turning them into docile pussycats, or opt to fly instead of walk. The term lucid was first coined in by Dutch psychiatrist Frederik van Eeden to describe dreams in which the dreamer is aware he is dreaming. Although his studies indicate only about one in 10 people have lucid dreams regularly, LaBerge believes it is a skill almost anyone can learn. More commonly, sleep researchers seek cures for disease and disorders. He is trying to solve a mystery: how our higher reflective consciousness connects with the brain.
Dr. Stephen LaBerge
Of all my memories of that summer in Peru—drinking pisco in the desert, finding a mummified baby, unwrapping it under less than scientifically optimal conditions— the one that stands out most is the memory of my first lucid dream. I set my alarm for 5 am and drifted off almost immediately, my body too tired to let my mind wander down its usual anxiety-laden paths. And then, the scene changed. It was a summer afternoon—not the Andean summer, with its thin warmth and cloudy nights, but a real summer, the kind of heat so extravagant you jump in the water and dry off in the sun.
