There is a FAQ surfaced from digg.com which talks about lucid dream – dreams that knowing that you are dreaming and you have full control of the dream course. It is similar to a time when you nearly awake from the sleep and you are dreaming – you are in full conscious yet you are still in dream.

In the last resource, Lucid Dreaming at Wiki Books, has a section on possible dangers of lucid dreaming. It sums up different categories of its problems:
- Controversial: Accidentally encountering “spiritual” entities
- Controversial: Exhaustion
- Controversial: Inability to stop
- Controversial: Undesirable false awakenings
Take extremely cautious on lucid dreaming.
