I just woke up from an incredible lucid dream, my best one yet. I got to see the stages. What was really interesting about it was that it started out in black and white. I was actually lucid during this part thinking, what is this garbage? This isn't like the lucid dreams I've had before. It was almost like I was having thoughts, not dreams. Then I thought, I don't think I'm completely asleep yet. I can't wait to actually go to sleep. I was kind of in the dark and just like you said, watching a movie. I sometimes wake up and remember my dreams being this way, but not often. But then suddenly I was in a room talking with people, 3D solid and in color. Must be awake, I thought. But then wait, this is a dream. WOW, this is too real for a dream. So I'm thinking maybe the black and white stuff is a level of dreaming that isn't as deep.
Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world? Morpheus
