Lucid Dreaming Science Areas

Postby mao12 » 23 Feb 2015 06:41

I was wondering what scientific areas are necessary to master, or be good at, to be better at lucid dreaming, or at least what areas may be useful for this purpose. The only one I know is Neuroscience, and maybe Chemistry.

So if anyone know any other areas I'd be more than grateful

Psychophysiology; psychoanalysis; and oneirology. You can also follow Stephen LaBerge's footsteps. I'm not sure how useful his mathematics degree has been though.

Might as well throw in physiology, sociology and biology for it's healthy understanding of the evolution that the brain has gone thru over the past billion years.
Is Lucid Dreaming the brains preparation for the next step of human evolution when we can escape the corporeal bond of our bodies?

This may sound silly, however, I have always taken it for granted that to be good at anything, you simply practice it. The whole concept of perception determines conception, conception determines will kind of thing, or in street language, we learn by experience.

Want to be good at mashed potatoes, pop them in the microwave till they are done and proceed in the traditional way.
