Lucid dreaming is defined in various ways by various people –I find it beneficial to take all these in collectively, in order to see what could be understood as the current collective [planetary] growth curve and how the concept has accurate expressions that are both broad and narrow; on the narrow end it generally denotes what is modernly called “the personal field”; a private rather than public area of consciousness. A personal, rather than shared experience territory.
Consensus or private reality?.. Potentially there are both, but how do I really know which I am experiencing. A consensus reality, to give a broad definition is a reality which is populated with free-will individuals, myself as well as a multitude of others; our every day reality is said to be a consensus reality. But truth be told, I cannot tell a free-will individual from a simulated one.
