Thanks for reading.
By the way you appear to have contradicted yourself in a few places. You say you have dreams with full lucidity but you are not aware you are dreaming...what exactly do you mean?
And oh I didn't know that was common. Dammit human mind haha.
I had a vivid dream in the past few weeks, and I was in a neighborhood that apparently I remember from when I was a child. But there is no such place! I get amnesia of who I am at times. But you have to be pre-lucid or almost lucid for that to happen, because in a normal dream I am in complete automatic mode and I don't even have the frame of mind to even ask questions.
Here's a lucid dream/false awakening I had that shows how easily we can fool ourselves and find 'rational' reasoning for things: I woke up and looked at my digital clock. It had weird symbols and no numbers on it. I assumed it must be malfunctioning and so looked at the plug. It was only half plugged in. (Made sense at the time, that's why it was all screwy). So I looked at the clock again and now it was blank. Why is that? I looked at the plug again and now it was on the floor. (Makes sense, there is no power.) How did it get unplugged? Then I notice my dog is sleeping on the floor. (Makes sense, he must have knocked it out when he was sleeping there.) Then three kids entered my room and I was embarrassed when they saw me in my underwear and I had to throw my blanket over me. They quickly left and I wondered, where are their parents? (They are down stairs at the party of course. False Memory). Now I thought, "I hope I'm dreaming." I saw a glass of water near my bed and I tried to move it without touching it. (That's a reality check I use often). It didn't budge; my reality check failed. I must be awake. But I still had doubt, so I looked at my hands. They looked normal except for one thing. They had drywall putty caked on them from when I was working on some home improvements on the walls yesterday. (False memory, but I did do that before, just not that day). That made sense too. But then I thought, "Wait a minute.... Why would I go to sleep without washing my hands?" FINALLY I FIGURED IT OUT! Then I tried making the water move again and it worked and helped verify it.
As fast as I was coming up with the questions, my subconscious was providing the answers. And you'd think I would know better after having many lucid dreams and false awakenings before this, but for some reason the 'this-is-real' switch gets flipped inside my head and it all seems to make sense at the time no matter how bizarre.
