Hi Ben

There are most certainly major differences in brain states depending on which stage of sleep they occur in and what sort of lucid dream they are. Hypnagogia, hypnagogic images (abbreviated HI here) kick off all Wake Initiated Lucid Dreams; followed by NREM dreams and finally by REM dreams. WILDs can be preceded by Sleep Paralysis or not. It would be very desirable to have SP tested with EEGs and brain scans and determine once and for all whether or not it's a dream state or not. It would be great to know whether or not the brain states in OBE are identical to LD too.

Some lucid dreamers are aware of the real world at the same time they're in a Lucid dream - again it would be great to see if there's any difference between their brain states and other lucid dreamers too. I've been in a WILD while hooked up to an EEG machine. I went through HI and got stuck in NREM dreams as the bed was too uncomfortable to enter REM dreams. I was aware of both the real world and the world of dreams and did ask if the machine showed I was awake or not.

I accidentally trigger this state 2 years back, but it was only one time. i think it was luck. while i was in a LD , my mom shouted at me to wake up from downstairs. but i was in middle of my LD so i shouted back to mom to shut up. and instead of ending the dream. i continued. it....
