“Imagine being able to travel the world while you sleep. You can try every food on the planet free of charge, try on expensive, designer clothes, hang out with celebrities or lost loved ones, and maybe even have an existential conversation with your dog.”
🧙 Are you ready to take your dreams to the next level? For centuries lucid dreaming has allowed practitioners to master their fears, spark creativity and solve problems that elude them in the waking realm.
See how becoming a more active participant in your dreams can lead to better sleep, improved mindfulness and, of course, having existential conversations with your dog. (Hoozagoodboy, and how do we quantify a relative moral term like “good”?)
🧤 Technology is always at the ready to help us achieve any goal, lucid dreaming being no exception.
MIT has created Dormio, a biometric glove that can enhance and extend the hypnogogic state to smooth the path for lucid dreaming. It’s not yet commercially available, but if you’re handy with a soldering iron and a compiler, the software and schematics are open source (links in the article).
