It's like memories are stored in two categories and the librarian of our mind accesses them differently depending on whether we are in a sleeping state or a waking state.
There is of course a bridge between the two, but I feel there are two main 'compartments'.
I've got some more ideas and theories about this, but just want to give a teaser to stimulate a good discussion.
And so there I was in the second lucid dream, remembering all that (that I needed to keep generating the dream), and then realizing that I didn't have a clue HOW TO generate the dream! It hadn't occurred to my waking self to google how to generate the dream. LOL!
In my LDs so far it felt as if I had my full brain power, memory and logic available. I haven't checked though whether I could remember what I ate the previous day, or if I paid my bills, or mundane stuff like that, honestly that was the least of my concerns, LOL!
I can be in familiar places that don't exist, but just know that I was there before in a previous dream. Where is my bed in reality? (I don't know most of the time). I sometimes have lucid dreams that start form a bed and get up and walk around and enjoy the dream, and when it fades, I think I'm going to wake up in that same bed only to realize that it wasn't ever my bed. Yet it was familiar to me at the time.
And if you ever had a lucid dream goal and became lucid, don't you find it hard to remember it? I've been fully lucid before, knowing I was suppose to do something and just could not remember, and then when it ends and my waking mind kicks in, it all comes back and I say, "D'oh!" (It's so obvious when awake but in a dream it's like I lost my car keys!) Yet doing things in lucid dreams where the idea came from my previous dreams (not my waking ambitions and intentions), are much easier to remember and come naturally.
