Polka Dots & Lucid Dreams

The past few weeks, I've been having a lot of lucid dreams. It's really creepy & really awesome at the same time, haha. It's this weird struggle of me becoming conscious within my dream, trying to wake up, and my brain sort of rerouting me, and keeping me trapped in the dream world. It's really weird. The first time it happened, it was incredibly horrifying. But each time it happens, I gain a little more control of the dreams, and I can manipulate the world around me, just slightly. A few days ago, I was dreaming - I was in the middle of a dimly lit room, and then suddenly I thought, "Hey, wait! I'm totally dreaming right now! This isn't real!" and I reached down and felt the carpet on the floor, as if it would prove to me that I was dreaming. I figured it wouldn't feel like real carpet, and that would be proof enough? but it DID feel real! Damn - there went that theory. Then I thought, wait a minute, my brain's just tricking me! So I thought, "If I'm dreaming, then I'll be able to do somethin' impossible, like make my hand disappear." So I looked down, and concentrated really hard, and slowly, my hand became transparent. Ha! I knew it. I finally proved to myself I was dreaming. So guess what happened next? I woke up :) but in a different dream! haha. A dream in which I just woke up from a lucid dream - and I believed it completely. What a trip.
Brains are weird.
Dreams are weird.
Oh, and in other news, Franklin and I are thinking of putting together a project for a kickstarter. Have any of you ever used kickstarter before?
