Could it be that we are not "lucid" and that waking reality is very much different to what we unquestionably accept?
For me the linking of the two worlds is in how much I feel a part of the worlds. If I feel I am having one of those lucid days everthing flows and there is a simple pleasure and ease of decision making in all aspects of my life. It just flows and there is a sense of detachment but at the same time an immersion in some nice energy that makes me feel connected to whatever is around me.

Would you care to share the way in which your reality has changed since you started asking this question? No sweat if you prefer to keep it personal.
I would absolutely LOVE to... if I could put it into words which could be easily understood. LoL
Although, I'll try...
My perspective on life has changed completely. How I look at other people has changed completely. Questions I've had all my life now have answers... they're personal truth answers, but they're answers that I could never find before. The only real answer is just that, the personal truth answer.
Ok wow... that was a really bad explanation. ROFL
But yeah, as I said, it's not something I can really put into words... I'm not going to tell you that I've found enlightenment or something, I don't even know what enlightenment is... but if I was to describe my shift in perspective, I'd say that it's a complete shift in how I see the world and my place in it.
Ok, perhap that was a bit better. LoL

It's like a movie - a movie is actually a series of still shots and it's just the rapid movement from one to another which gives the illusion of continuity.
I would love to slow a dream down so it could be viewed frame by frame. Everything always to appears to have this vibrational glow and very slightly transparent quality to it, but only when you look closely which usually occurs during my lucid dreams.
When we are dreaming, maybe we are selecting the events from all possiblities. I've noticed that things in the distance are less defined and seem more stable, less of the rapid vibration. But things up close and especially things with a lot of detail are in almost a constant state of flux. Maybe they are being updated faster, just throwing out guesses at this point but I love to think about it.

I actually had a theory about that...
I never did get an answer from anyone, but I asked some people about the correlation between how fast our eyes move during REM sleep and how long a particular REM cycle lasts.
You might be able to ascertain my hypothesis from the above statement.
