I've just discovered lucid dreaming and find it amazing that anything like this is possible! and I've spent a majority of my day today reading all the articles your site has to offer, and find myself with just a few unaswered questions:
When you manifest someone into your lucid dream does your consious dream involving them become their unconsious dream? do they remember anything you talk to them about in the dream or any actions exchanged between you? I'm sure I'll think of more questions, but right now I'm so starstruck that such a thing is possible that I can't think properly. I'm 14, the same age you were when you first discovered it, so you can probably understand the utter stage of amazement I'm in right now!
Thanks for the info.
I think of dream figures not as being separate from myself, but another part of my Self. Part of my subconscious, as this really does create a large part of my dream. However I sense you are talking about a literal manifestation of a real life person -- literally drawing them into your personal dream and interacting with them and then wondering if they remember anything about it the next day?
If this is possible, the evidence is only anecdotal at this stage. There are some lucid dreamers who are keenly researching this. Personally I am quite skeptical at the moment and am more interested in psychological applications of lucid dreaming. What you're talking about is perhaps dream telepathy or mutual dreaming - which we call paranormal. It's wide open for research if you're interested, but currently there is nothing scientifically sound to say that you dreaming lucidly of a friend would influence their own dreams, nor would they have any idea about the content of your dream unless you told them in real life...
