This question was asked recently in a post on one of our favorite forums, Mortal Mist, and the writer had a couple of theories.
One had to do with the idea that we tend to shy away from things that require introspection; the other had to do with the fact that you can’t make any money off a lucid dream.
I tend to agree with the first one, but also believe that the topic itself is just not well known. I mean when was the last time that you saw a report on lucid dreams on Fox News? Or a “reality” TV show on the topic? Or even someone that everyone seems to read about, like Lindsay Lohan, talking about their dreams. (With LL, it’s probably just as well 🙂 )
What do you think? Why is this fascinating state of consciousness so unknown? Let us know your thoughts; post a comment below.
