nah you are still just as asleep are you are any other night in your life. All you are doing is dreaming just like you are every night, the only difference is you remember/control it
by the way this was my first time logging on in a year or so...honestly im honored that this got so much attention/discussion. Reading over peoples posts about how they never remembered their dreams and simply wanted to achieve that or people who have been literally changed and inspired by experiencing lucid dreams is pretty awesome. kind of gives me the warm little feeling that people have been helped hah. so thanks all!
