A different kind of lucid dream
Okay, so I've been trying for a lucid dream for about two or three weeks now - pretty passively, just for kicks (and because as I think Erin said in one of the podcasts, it's not like there's anything better to do with that time). I'm pretty sure I did tap into it briefly the night before last, but the manner in which it took place has me a little confused...
The dream's subject matter escapes me now. I know it involved a dream-within-a-dream (this is an old standby of my subconcious, strangely enough), and at one point I was describing the subdream to a character. While trying to remember aspects of this second dream, I began confusing elements of the two dreams, and suddenly it occurred to me that I was still sleeping. This is where things got weird: once I had acknowledged that I was still in a dream, all my sensory perception totally dissolved... but I was still dreaming!
I initiated a dialogue with one of the characters, some kind of cliche'd guru-type like you'd see in a martial arts movie, who I decided probably best represented any sage advice my subconscious would have to relate. While we were talking, I didn't see, hear, etc. the character at all... the experience actually felt a whole lot like writing, except that one character's dialogue was being written by somebody else (i.e. my subconcious). The whole thing was getting kind of unnerving, so I guess I ended up waking myself up.
Does it count as a lucid dream if you can't sensorially perceive any of it? And if not, what kind of dream was it? I wonder, is this case at all documented in the existing body of dream research...?

I have had many lucid dreams where I could not see or hear anything. In fact, I've had lots of dreams where I am unconscious but I can still hear what is going on around me. it's frustrating. Like, why is my dream going on without me?
