This is one of the questions I’m asked most often, which is why I’ve spent a lot of time on the blog, and why it’s so important for anyone who wants to understand lucid dreaming to know it.
If you haven’t done so already, check out my post on lucid dreaming, the first of which I posted earlier this year, which covers the most common myths and misconceptions about lucid dreaming.
It also includes tips on how to best practice it and what you should know about it to have the best chance of success.
But first, some background.
If you’ve never done lucid dreaming before, it’s pretty easy to understand how it works.
You wake up in a dream and then move around in the physical world in a similar way to you would when you were awake.
Your body has been given the ability to move freely through space.
There’s no conscious control.
Your mind is just there to keep things moving along.
This is different from dreaming where the dreamer has to make decisions about where they are in the dream.
You’re free to move around the room as you please, as long as you stay in your own body.
If your dream has a central hub, you can also just use your body as a platform to move from one location to another, just like you’d use a map.
The only difference is that you don’t need to keep track of which direction your body is in in order to move forward or backwards, as your brain knows where you are.
You can also go back and forth in time.
But as you move from place to place, your brain will learn which way to go, and it’s the way your body moves that determines your direction of travel.
When you move your body, you’re essentially moving through space, which means you’re also moving through time.
You have a set time to move through space so that you can move forward.
You also have a fixed direction of movement to go through time, so that your body follows the same path every time you start and stop in a place.
That way, when you move around, you only move in one direction.
This makes it very easy to think of time as a continuous stream, as you’re constantly moving through your dream space.
So, if you’re already familiar with time and space, you should be able to understand what it is to be in a lucid dream.
You can think of your body and your mind as a kind of computer or computer network, which makes it easy to explain what happens when you wake up and when you go back to sleep.
Imagine a single point of a computer or network that you’re connected to.
It has its own clocks and computers and monitors, so it’s very similar to your brain in terms of the information it has about its environment and the time it’s in.
It can even have its own memory, which it uses to remember what it saw, heard, smelled, and tasted in the past.
And it can also store its memories, which can be stored as a file on the hard drive, or in memory sticks or other storage devices.
If one of these storage devices is broken, it’ll likely fail, and you won’t be able at all to move your physical body or your mind.
That means that you need to be able keep track and remember what you see, hear, smell, and taste, just as you would if you were dreaming.
So how does your body keep track?
Imagine you’re standing at a table and you’re looking at a card with numbers on it.
You think about how many cards there are in this table, and what numbers they’re all written in.
But if you look at the cards that aren’t in the same order as the ones that are, you might think that you’ve found a way to add or subtract them.
But in fact, your mind is looking for a different way to get the numbers to come out the same.
That might be because of some kind of error in your memory or because you’re trying to solve a problem with your brain, or you’re thinking that the numbers on the card you’re reading aren’t the same as the numbers you’re seeing in the picture.
The brain uses these ideas to help it solve problems that it can’t solve itself, so you might remember the numbers incorrectly.
Or you might forget the numbers and just think that they’re not there.
The idea is that the brain uses the same rules to figure out how to add and subtract as it does to solve problems, and the same way it does that to figure how to remember things.
The same way you remember a number, your conscious mind can also remember what a number is, but it doesn’t do that as often.
The way that your conscious brain does that is through memory.
Now imagine that your mind and body are connected to a central point in the brain called the thalamus, which in the case of a dream is the part
