It's a popular myth that mindfulness meditation is the art of the lucid dream. Lucile Quest’s book The Magician's Stone explains lucid dream research well: "Through lucid dream studies, one can learn to notice the lucid dream without looking at the clock. Reasoning from a dream stage is the eye for lucid dreamers." While this study was designed to understand a few things about dream analysis, it seems that lucid dreamers at least have some idea of the contents of their dream, and can at least give an insight into what went on inside the lucid dream.
Dream-t programming has been used to create work of fiction for many years, and the similarities end there. The authors of many science fiction have been caught dreaming in at least one dream: 1996's A City Without Lights, by William Gibson; and 2004's The Lobster and the Smartphone, by David Byrne.
While it is possible that some writers have used dream-like technologies to produce e-books or television shows, the majority of writers who have let their minds wander to other things has been able to produce less in the process.
How creative were the people who could come up with these e-jokes?
It was a very weak first impression for programmers: they couldn’t figure out that Gibson was a big fan (although she was not), that the smartphone was Gibson’s idea of magic, and that Byrne was using the technology of the medium to create weird dream-like experiences.

Soon, it was clear that creative control was what would work for the job. One programmer named Jeremy quit the company to work on other projects at Amazon, and subsequently developed a personal brand for the same role on their own site called "Project Gutenberg-Gibbon," which allows anyone to create their own web comics. Someone else has also tapped into the same unconscious obsession with books: they named their own movies after their favorite books, and are now obsessed with the e-juices they are told to use to induce a happy ending.
What is the brain behind these amazing e-jokes?
The book is called The Lizard King, and according to its source material, it is a reptilian cultistic psychedelic experience.
There is a talking podcast about the project called Lizard Man, or Lizardtalk, if you are familiar with the creators or the creators' bio. It talks a lot of the book, such as their preference for "goggles," or "electrical effects," which they believe induce a happy ending in books.
Lizardman describes itself as "a non-profit, not-for-profit, non-partisan, and explicitly atheist-in-residence."
It claims to have over 3,000 attendees, and claims to use a "magic wand" (ancient magic objects that are sometimes called "electro-wands") to induce happy, non-threatening, and non-threatening ends.
They also claim to use a "magic potion," or "magic potion," (commonly referred to as "Pillars of Wounding," or "Tobacco,") to induce satiety, and they give you money to spend on things like stuff, or else tell you to hold off on buying it for a while until you get something that merited your vote.
There is a website devoted to the products (called "Discourse Machines," or "DMZ's") selling them, but their website is dead; there is only a Facebook page called "MONEY IN SPACE" and a "SOLD" buttons at the end of the product order form.
There is a forum known as the "Fortune Mill," and there is a hidden message imploring members to buy $1 of any of the products mentioned in the survey to get their "influence," as well as get their hands on one now that they know someone is listening.
The first commenter on the forum named "Joe" writes, "I just bought a gizmo for my dumb brain and am now arguing with people about whether or not it is a good idea to do so. I thought we Voted On this site! Lets discuss!."
There is a forum known as the "Fortune Mill" known as "It's Not That Kind of Fun" because of the voting system that exists, and there are secret ballot boxes with envelopes containing money and instructions to be read from inside the box.
Two of the other commenters on the forum, Eric Bruns and Ryan Geller, are members of the same company that make the calculators used in the site's simulations, which determine the outcome of the 2016 election
