Every time I have a lucid dream, I practice and attempt to perfect my telekinesis.
At first, I could only move a small object – a coin or matchbook – in the palm of my hand.
Now, I can push a full-grown adult woman back thirty feet across a floor without knocking her down (control, people!).
It’s almost time to use it on the werewolves.
For anyone who has watched Inception and has practiced lucid dreaming, we lucid dreamers know that the real world has inertia. Most people can’t stroll into a lucid dream and start making things appear and disappear at will, or teleport, or radically alter the surroundings.
That takes practice, for most people.
So in Inception when Ariadne steps into a lucid dream and does absolutely insane things with such haste, any lucid dreamer goes, “Holy shit, she’s a natural.”
For those who have never practiced lucid dreaming the scene probably has little impact at all, and certainly not the same depth of characterization.
I don’t know why the real world has inertia in dreams; it just does. My telekinesis in dreams is now a useful skill but when I battle my arch-nemesis clade of werewolves it cannot fail or I will quickly become lunch. I have some more practicing to do but soon I will be much less likely to get eaten by the wolves.
