“Lucid dreaming is a real phenomenon that many people strive to acquire. I haven’t been able to do it yet, although I’m getting close. It is something you can learn to do. Many famous people have had their inspiration through lucid dreams, including Aristotle, Salvador Dali, filmmaker Christopher Nolan, and one of my favourite writers, Stephen King.”
Muriel says many people lucid dream without realising it. “If your dreams are especially vivid and you have difficulty distinguishing them from reality, then you might be a lucid dreamer. Once you learn how to approach it, you might feel much better about it and even enjoy it, like Rick in Lucid – although I doubt you’ll have to solve murders, or that your lucid world will be quite as complicated as Rick’s. Most often our dreams are jumbled and strange, but dreams are an important information-processing time for us, and even though we can’t remember them, we certainly have them.”
