I have been fascinated for a while by the idea of lucid dreaming. My daily timetable is too unpredictable at the moment to practice it seriously. It would seem to require a similar level of attention as getting good at a musical instrument. But it occurred to me you could potentially influence the dreams with some programmed sound effects through the night. But I could not work out how the “aware” dreamer could effect the program running the sounds without waking. Maybe this new interface is a way.
The developers say young players have the best successes with the system because they have no barriers to believing they can change the shape of the world with their minds.
“You believe you can, you believe you can’t. Either way you’re right”.
