Lucid Dreaming / Luzides Träumen
There is nothing inherently difficult to understand about the concept of lucid dreaming: as stated in the introduction, lucid dreaming is simply dreaming while being aware you are dreaming. You can think of lucid dreaming as being conscious while dreaming. If, by chance, during a dream it suddenly dawns on you that you are dreaming, then you have experienced a lucid dream, regardless of whether you have been able to attain control of your dream.
Lucid Dreaming by Dream Views (English)
Information on lucid dreaming, controlling dreams, the stages of sleep, dream recall, dream signs, and more. It is written to be easily understood by those just starting out; the information and techniques provided are also beneficial for those who already have some ability.
How have I taken pictures in my dream, hoping that upon awakening my dream was somehow saved... Wouldn't it be marvellous to have a machine that could make one's dreams visible?
Dreams are an individual experience. You can talk about your dreams, you can write them down, or draw them, but you are the only one that was truly there.
Some dream in color, smell, sound and taste. Others in black and white. But there are also people that don't dream at all.
At least that is what they say. Because everybody dreams. Only not everybody remembers them.

Wenn Menschen in ihren Träumen wissen, dass sie träumen, und dadurch das Geschehen des Traums selbst bestimmen, dann spricht man von einem Klartraum oder auch luzidem Traum.
Wie viele Menschen können Klarträumen? Kann man das Klarträumen erlernen? Was kann man in seinen Klarträumen alles machen? Um die Frage: "kann man das Klarträumen erlernen?" vorwegzunehmen: Viele Klarträumer/innen erleben ihre Klarträume spontan, es gibt aber auch verschiedene Techniken, um das Klarträumen zu erlernen. Eine vielversprechende Methode verbirgt sich hinter dem Link "Power-Napping".
Der Klartraum von Daniel Erlacher, Universität Heidelberg. (German)
Ein Klartraum ist ein Traum, in dem der Träumer sich bewusst ist, dass er träumt und nach eigenem Entschluss handelnd in das Traumgeschehen eingreifen kann.
Im Gegensatz zu Tagträumen, Tagtraumphantasien, imaginativen Tagtraumtechniken wie dem Katathymen Bilderleben, dem Autogenen Training oder der Hypnose findet der Klartraum während des Schlafes und nicht im Wachzustand statt.
58% der Bevölkerung haben mindestens 1x im Leben spontan einen luziden Traum. 21% haben sogar mindestens einen Klartraum pro Monat, sind sich aber meistens dieses speziellen Phänomens und der damit verbundenen Erfahrungsmöglichkeiten nicht bewusst.

Paul Tholey (1937 - 1998) was a gestalt psychologist and professor at the Psychological Institute of the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt and later professor for sports psychology at the Technical University of Braunschweig, both in Germany. He began studying the phenomenon of lucid dreaming in 1959 and was led to it in an attempt to prove whether dreams are in color (it has been commonly maintained that they are not).

"The problem with the bacteria hypothesis is that an extremely high concentration of bacteria must exist before they begin to produce light," Miller told LiveScience. "But what could possibly support the occurrence of such a large population?"
"But there could be other areas we simply don't know about yet," Miller said. "In fact, we're already beginning to receive feedback from additional witnesses of milky seas. Some of these accounts occurred in regions we had not thought to look before, and we're currently working to find matches with the satellite data."

The chances are there's life out there, but any messages could be thousands of years old and indecipherable. Roger Highfield reports.
Aliens are probably common. Because there are billions of trillions of stars in the cosmos, many astronomers think it would be highly improbable for Earth to be the only rock to harbour life.
"The knowledge that we are not alone would affect people's psyche, and totally transform our world view," he said during a visit to Britain last week. "The mere fact alone would be disruptive. But imagine if we got some serious information from ET. Then all bets are off about what our future would be."

Does alien life exist? This is one of the most fascinating questions in the whole of science. I’m hopeful that we’ll learn the answer by the end of this century.
In earlier centuries, many believed that the Moon and Mars were inhabited. The science fiction of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells popularised the idea of alien life. We’re less optimistic about Mars than our forebears were 100 years ago. There is certainly nothing there like the “Martians” of popular fiction.
