If you know what I mean. 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.
