Let me explain this short dream:
I realised I was dreaming, my brother was in a sleeping bag, sleeping near the t.v., and I showed him that I was lucid dreaming and raised a Ritz Cracker off the ground with my mind and exploded it in mid air. Then I turned to leave, and it faded and ended.
It was truly that short after becoming aware. Sounds like a failure, but I learned something.
That morning I thought about it as I was outside with my dogs in the morning. I placed a quarter on the ground, (a little smaller that a Ritz Cracker, but bare with me), and then I stepped away about ten feet or so which is what it felt like my distance was from the cracker in the dream. And I tried to see if I could discern what it was from that distance. I couldn't
THERE WAS NO WAY I COULD TELL IT WAS A RITZ CRACKER IN MY DREAM! HOW DID I KNOW?
In actuality it was just an orange round thing, and in fact, it was flourecent and emminating light. Why did I think it was a Ritz Cracker? BECAUSE I JUST KNEW IT!
So for me and I bet others, the visuals of a dream are not as concrete as waking life. When you meet someone in a dream that you never met before, do you remember what they look like? Me neither.
Sometimes objects don't look like it, they just feel like it. They have the impression of being it, and you truly believe that it is really what it is! But not because of 'sight'. Our eyelids are closed!
In a lucid dream, or any dream for that matter.... feeling is believing.
P.S. HOW DO BLIND PEOPLE DREAM? I KNOW THEY MUST!
If someone has no concept of "sight" (blind from birth), then they have no concept of "sight" with which to use in the non-physical (while dreaming or whatever).
They can still dream and project... it'll just be done using other concepts and metaphors that they have.
That's my two cents.

I just read it and agree. Which further shows that the feeling is more important than the 'sensory input'. I put in quotes because it is coming from within not external stimuli. But dreaming is mostly FEELING! Or is it not?
