And what made its way across my desk today if not “Poet Anderson… In Darkness” by Tom DeLonge and Suzanne Young.
This is the latest and greatest in the popular Poet Anderson young adult fiction series.
To truly understand the background on this, you have to check out the 2014 short film Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker.
It’s really quite impressive. A sort of love child between Akira and The Terminator made on a bed of lucid dreams whilst watching Blade Runner.
Breathtaking anime aside, it’s likeable because it sets out a sort allegorical lucid dreaming reality. In this world, lucid dreamers (known as Dream Walkers) run the show, whereas those without the skill sleep on and are haunted by Night Terrors.
Suffice the say, the main character Poet Anderson uses his lucidity skills to jump impressively all over the shop, slay monsters and defy gravity – exactly as one would expect in an anime rendition of a lucid dream.
The novels take the world created in the short film and iterate it to the next level, adding characters and storyline. The series kicked off with Poet Anderson…Of Nightmares in 2015 and this latest book “In Darkness” seeks to continue the adventure.
The book itself is bona fide young adult fiction. Teenage readers will enjoy the bold characters, action packed plot and hopefully the potential of lucid dreaming.
This series really has to be commended for taking lucid dreaming – something that has only ever really been marketed at adults – and presenting it to the young adult reader in a digestible, entertaining and relevant way.
Not only do you get sucked into an enthralling, dystopian reality – but you get to think about how cool the skill of lucid dreaming actually is.

18 July 2018: A complete game changer has emerged in the realm of lucid dreaming technology. A device that integrates reality checks instead of replacing them and uses Pavolivan Conditioning to establish learned
Members of our lucid dream forum have been asking how to create dream characters in lucid dreams. The most common problem is having characters who look nothing like they should. Or they seem disinterested in your company. Or they fail to show up on command altogether. So, how to combat this? It's a matter of finding creative solutions that bypass logical expectations.
To lucid dream, I recommend being able to remember at least one vivid dream per night. That will boost your self awareness in dreams (making lucidity more likely) and also means you can actually remember your lucid dreams. Which is nice. Here are four detailed tips on how to remember your dreams more frequently. And if you don't think you dream at all - trust me, you almost certainly do. It takes an extraordinarily rare sleep disorder to deprive someone of dream sleep.
Virtual reality is upon us. Shipping of the Oculus Rift began in April 2016. Vive launched in June. And Playstation VR breaks loose in October. These mind-expanding technologies are bringing interactive virtual worlds to gamers everywhere. But did you know that you already possess a far superior form of biological virtual reality? It stretches all the way back to before the discovery of fire. To the the dawn of our species.
A lot has happened in the last 5 months. But how did we go from business as usual to changing the face of the entire lucid dreaming supplements industry? It’s a story that I think will interest you – and you might even learn a thing or two in the process. When I was first taken on-board as Chief Lucidity Officer in 2016, one of the first things I was tasked with was taking a good look at our operations and giving things a bit of an overhaul.
Experts agree that everyone is capable of having lucid dreams. Dreaming itself is a normal function of the mind. We all dream every night, even if we don't remember. And we all achieve conscious awareness while awake every single day. So what does it mean to combine these states? Why, the amazing ability to have conscious - or lucid - dreams. Sounds simple, doesn't it? So why do I keep hearing from people who say they can't achieve their first lucid dream?
