This is an interesting video about dreaming and gaming, and shows that gamers are more able to control their lucid dreams than non-gamers. From my own experience, I believe this to be the case, as I’m often able to control my dreams. Not always, but probably more than most people. It’s a really odd feeling, knowing that you’re dreaming and yet embracing it and being able to control (if only slightly) what you do in your dream. Odd, yet great fun. The point about the nightmares is true for me as well, as I very rarely have them.
Here are the links to the research.
Can you control your lucid dreams? Onwards!
