Hurricane, Cyclone, Typhoon...
They are all different labels of the same thing and each individual one is different when it comes to air speed, rotation, and size.
So too are our lucid dream experiences and what people want to call it.

Yea, self identity in a dream can be vague sometimes and during a very real, lucid dream I know EXACTLY who I am. (well, do you truly know who you are or are you the product of how others perceive you.... Is our identity just a figment of your own imagination?)
But whatever my 'identity' sometimes I am aware of it and other times (as in most non-lucid dreams) I don't have a sense of self.

I have pondered where our minds are. They cannot be measured by science. They have no weight, don't reflect light, make no sound. In fact they cannot interact with the physical world at all. The brain is physical, but the mind that is the product of all those synapses and electrical currents doesn't exist physically. BUT THE 'I' INSIDE ME FEELS SO REAL! Where are our minds, memories and experiences? Maybe there IS another plane of existence....
