On a summer night in December 2015, a few hours after leaving the home of my family, I had my first lucid dream.
My family and I had been playing pool at the pool in our home town of Jammu and Kashmir when we heard a loud bang and realised we were standing on the deck of a ship.
We looked at each other, we gasped, and we realised that we were in the middle of a storm.
A moment later, we realised we had jumped into the sea.
The next thing we knew, we were floating in the sky.
This was my first experience with lucid dreaming.
As a young child, I dreamed that I was a pilot on a plane, flying in the air over a vast desert.
In my early 20s, I began to study the brain and the workings of the mind.
I became interested in dreams and dreamed about them constantly.
At the time, I was studying neuroscience at a prestigious university in Singapore and was studying with some of the most eminent minds in the field.
It was a dream I would remember for a lifetime.
The first lucid dreams I had were not the kind that you have in a dream, but they were lucid.
I remember the dream vividly because I woke up the next morning to find that I had made the jump into the ocean and landed on the sand.
It made me feel alive and confident.
My dream began with a moment of terror and confusion.
I felt like I was in a nightmare and that I could not escape.
This is when I realised that the dream was not my own.
It happened to me because I had lost the ability to think clearly and remember details of my life, memories, and dreams.
I had no idea how I got there.
I was also not aware of how lucid dreams worked.
At that time, a colleague of mine from our field had been working on a project to understand how the human brain works.
He had been studying how our brain processes visual information, and he wanted to find out how we can learn to control and regulate this function in our minds.
So, we began to explore the possibility of trying out lucid dreaming to see if we could control it and get more lucid in the process.
We were still dreaming, of course, but we could actually control our own thoughts and dreams in lucid dreams.
We had no reason to believe that this dream was real.
The dream was coming to an end.
I started to realise that it was all very confusing, that I did not understand it.
I began thinking that I knew the answer to all my questions.
I realised I had started to understand the mind of the dreamer.
In reality, I did have some understanding.
The reason why the dream had ended was because I was experiencing some kind of vivid dream.
I would see the dream as a visual experience, but the dreamers dream was also a physical experience.
In a dream there is a space in the brain where our brain creates images that we then experience in our dream.
These images are called dreams.
In the dream, we are all dreaming, and in reality, we experience the dream by imagining and creating new images.
But in a lucid dream, it is the dream that takes place in the mind, not our imaginations.
There is no space for our imagines.
It is all done in our mind.
In lucid dreams, there is no dream.
It just happens.
So what is a lucid dreaming dream?
The dream is like a dream.
We have all the dreams we have ever had, and each dream is a series of images that our brain sends to our unconscious mind.
A lucid dream is different from a dream where the dream is in the subconscious mind.
There are two kinds of dreams that we have in the lucid dream: dream images and dreams that happen to us.
When a dream occurs in our dreams, our mind is flooded with images that come from our imagination.
In order to create these dream images, our brain needs a lot of energy.
We are using up energy that our body and brain have used for other purposes.
This energy is being used to create the dream images in our subconscious.
The brain is the organ that uses the most energy to create dreams.
Our brain is an organ that has evolved to work with a very limited amount of energy to help us dream.
The amount of our energy used in the dream depends on our age, how much energy we have, and our mental state.
For example, if you are an adult, you have less energy available in the form of dreams, and your brain is used to use more energy to produce dreams.
A young child has more energy available, so his brain has more resources to work on dreaming.
In addition, your brain uses energy to send visual information to your subconscious mind when you are dreaming.
This information tells the subconscious brain what is happening in the dreams.
So if your brain was using up a lot more energy during a dream than
