Hi Kathy, glad you confirmed that. Have read myself to sleep for
years and noticed the effect a long time before hearing of
`hypnagogia'; so it seems the act of reading pre-disposes the
mind to create a text-based scenario within a lucid dream.

Following some of those Wiki links it seems some folk go a stage
further; investing some significance in lucid dream content and
even asking for 'messages'. From where or what I'm not sure.


Cheers
