Dream Control

I meant to post this a few weeks ago, but when I was a kid I used to pride myself on my ability to control my dreams. To the extent where I was actually manipulating and changing circumstances in my dreams. Also, when I was kid, I saw a story on 20/20 after T.G.I.F. one night about a dream control mask. The mask somehow monitored your brain, or your eyes for REM, and then emitted a red light to signal your sleeping self that you were dreaming, and therefore should begin thinking about controlling your dream actions. As I’ve said, I’ve now lost this ability to fully control my dreams, but this scenario reminds me of true augmented or virtual reality. There are now numerous websites out there instructing people how to control their dreams, one of which can be seen here: http://www.dreamviews.com/dreamcontrol.php
