Then it struck me when I woke up.... what I need is "The Guy from Tech Support" (TGTS). If you have seen Vanilla Sky, or even Total Recall... you know what I mean. You are stuck in a dream and don't know it, and the guy shows up and says "Hey Dude... you are dreaming... this isn't real". That's what I need. I know my subconscious (and yours too) is very clever and can do amazing things... instead of all these indirect hints my subconscious is giving me, I'm going to see if I can get "the guy from tech support" to show up and say, "hey dude, you are dreaming...". Has anyone ever heard or tried this? Seems like it is fairly straightforward, and if one can insert him in the dreams, then this ought to be a pretty reliable approach to lucidity. Even I'm not that dumb to miss THAT sign! Many other aspects in those movies seems to be pretty accurate relative to lucid dreaming... this sounds like one aspect worth trying to replicate.
At the same time... do you actually need to see him in order for him to be there? Maybe he's been there before and has just been hiding?
So if TGTS shows up, I'm hoping that you won't be like me and actually listen. Program yourself to listen. No one would ever come up to you in waking life and suggest you might be dreaming.
Last night I had a lucid dream. I was in a museum with a friend, and he says to me, we need to find a bathroom. I immediately realized this was one of my "search for the bathroom" dreamsigns where I have to in reality go to the bathroom and it enters my dreams.
Usually in these dreams I really have to go, and I try to find a toilet. However, the ones I find (thank goodness) are so dirty or broken or exposed to the world that I refuse to use it.
However this dream was different in a significant way: 1) It was the DC who said we had to find a bathroom, 2) I DID NOT HAVE TO GO
So, the DC really is the one that alerted me to the dream state. This is GREAT because it isn't much fun lucid dreaming if you have to use the loo. Also, the number of times when you are dreaming and have to go to the John are not that frequent. But having the DC have to go... hey, he can do that any time he wants!
