Hey, I read through about half of the stuff on that page, and I actually had a lucid dream last night. It was pretty cool, actually...

I've had 2 lucid dreams ever which I remember, one of which I was more in control of, but I haven't ever felt completely in control of what I dream. Usually I know I'm dreaming but I can only watch detachedly what happens, and if I don't like the dream I just blink my eyes untill I wake up. I find this kind of stuff interesting though. :]

Are you talking about me? I don't think I'm gifted, although I am a little intelligent. But the site said that anyone who read through some of the materials might have a lucid dream that night because that person would have thought about it a lot, and people dream about what they are thinking about, so I doubt I'm 'gifted' lol.

Whoa, you mean there's actually a name for it? I dunno if you guys'll believe me, but I can already do this. I never thought of it as a gift though or anything. I just thought it was just another way of sleeping, guess I was wrong. BTW, my I.Q's 133. Is that gifted? I know it's smart, but I don't know if it's "gifted".

133 is AFAIK about 20 points above average. But I doubt it's relevant to LD-ing.

IQ is irrelevant - whether you have a lucid dream or not depends on your subconscious. the various methods that are used to train lucid dreaming actually train your conscience of it - nothing to do with being too intelligent, though it migh tbe hard for a mentally handicapped person (or maybe not).
You know you've been hanging around a forum too long when people start quoting you and agreeing :P

Yeah, I kind of figured that. Well anyway, I'm usually fully conscious in most of my dreams. Too bad I can't say the same thing for when I'm actually awake :D

i recently bought this cool book that tells you everything about dreams. it's pretty neat. i was looking at this website once, and it showed this machine, that a Japanese person made, that made you dream what you wanted. it was pretty weird, but cool. haha.B)

i've had so many weird dreams before lol. once i went to japan, met johnny depp, or had some dreams that i woke up crying from- and they're mainly about school! (dang i'm weird):o

every time i have realized i was dreaming, I tried to fly. It works sometimes. I like thosed dreams when I am falling off a cliff and i wake up falling off my bed.

I read once that over 50% of people dream in black and white, I've never done it, how about you guys?

I remember dreaming in black and white once, but the strange part was that it wasn't entirely black and white, some elements (cars, people) had color.

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence that you ever tried.
