The only thing I can think of is that perhaps my subconscious is tinkering and adjusting to my demand for more lucid dreams, and that this little display was just a metaphor for that action. If that's not the case, then I have absolutely no idea what it is trying to tell me, and I'd appreciate any feedback people might have for me.
You may associate surgeons with meticulosity, meaning that you may feel that, by being meticulous with lucid dream techniques you may get what willmeet your demands.
Shutting the door in your face may mean that too much effort is putting you off (outside the surgeons room) and the pressure in itself is detrimental to your practice.
Set yourself a target of only 2 or 3 lucid dreams per week. If it doesn't happen, don't fret and go easy on yourself. I'll tell you what really helped with my practice: reminders and revision of books by Rebecca Turner, Stephen LaBerge, and, last but not least, Michael Raduga's The Phase guidebook (this one is all about implementing techniques and practice - from entering the lucid dream world to prolonging your stay as well as improving your conduct whilst lucid dreaming. It's meticulous whilst telling you to have a relaxed approach.

I've read one of LaBerge's books and it seemed very useful. I'll have to look into books by the other authors. Thanks for the input!

Perhaps you feel that lucid dreaming is for an elite group of experts that you are not a part of.
You're always welcome in this 'average-joe' group and we won't shut any doors in your face!
When I first started I believed lucid dreaming was something that was very hard to achieve and I wanted to be one of the experts, like Stephen LaBerge!
Because I thought it was something hard to achieve I was trying to hard and too often and not getting satisfactory results.
Eventually, I discovered that lucid dreaming is not as elusive as I thought. In fact, I found that when I simplified things and eased up on my approach, lucid dreams would occur very often.
It's really not hard to achieve. I think it is very much a case of allowing your brain to get there as too much effort and worry for results may interfere.
In a way, your dream has brought you some answers. It helped you to arrive at a crucial solution. The "surgeon" approach is not the way. Don't go in that room.
