I don't think you can scientifically prove what's in someone's mind... at least not yet. If you've never had a lucid dream, you can't really know whether the people who say they did are BSing you.

Yes, it has been proven in the 70's.

The eyes aren't paralyzed when you are dreaming, so a bunch of scientests told someone to move his eyes something like 4 or 8 times right, then left or something like that when he will be awere in his dream.

He fell asleep and did excatly as he was asked, which proven that he was indeed aware in his dreams, remembering and doing what he was told to do.

Yep, Stephen LaBerge wasn't the first one to demonstrate that lucid dreaming is real but he certainly popularised said experiment. One can be sure that lucid dreaming is real as much as consciousness--and the latter's certainty is only 100% introspectively against the solipsistic hypothesis that everybody else is a mindless zombie. :-D

Lucid dreaming has been found to have a 'hybrid' brain signature, too: 40 Hz (Gamma bandwidth). It combines waking consciousness with dreaming. 8-)
