Speaking of hands, they too are strange most of the time.
And of course words can look like weird, alien hieroglyphics too.
These three things tend to be the most amiss and unstable in a lucid dream for me and most others as I have been reading in these posts. Perhaps many things are and they are just the things we notice most of all, but still....
WHY are they amiss?
and What's the connection between them?

I just had an LD this morning that was the most stable yet. I specifically evaluated the quality and stability during the dream and was completely amazed at how solid and perfect it was. Truly unbelievable. It's one thing to wake up from a regular dream and say, "I should have been able to tell that was dream." while you're trying to remember the details. But it's another thing altogether to be saying that during the dream, trying to see if you can see a difference and then committing the results to your regular waking memory. I could on forever about it
I also think that the three things I mention tend to be reported as amiss by most people because they are simply noticed most often. If a building is a little bit weird looking and we never saw it before, we wouldn't think about it too much and just consider it a building in our dream. It still has the impression of being a nearby building and it feels like it. But since we know our hands so well and words and clocks must be exact to be legible we will notice any anomaly in those most of all.
That is my own answer to my own question, but what are anybody elses' theories?
