A. The laws  of physics and society are  repealed in  dreams. The only
limits are  the reaches of your  imagination. Much of the potential of
dreams is  wasted   because people do   not  recognize that they   are
dreaming. When we are not lucid in a dream, we think  and behave as if
we  are  in waking reality.  This  can lead  to pointless frustration,
confusion  and  wasted energy,   and  in the  worst   case, terrifying
nightmares. It is useless to  try as we do to  accomplish the tasks of
waking  life  in dreams.  Our misguided  efforts  to  do so result  in
anxiety  dreams    of  malfunctioning   machinery,  missed  deadlines,
forgotten   exams,  losing the way,  and   so on.  Anxiety  dreams and
nightmares can be overcome through lucid dreaming, because if you know
you are dreaming you  have nothing to fear.   Dream images cannot hurt
you.  Lucid dreams,  in addition to  helping  you lead your dreams  in
satisfying    directions,   enjoy fantastic  adventures,  and overcome
nightmares,  can   be  valuable  tools for    success  in your  waking
life. Lucid  dreamers  can  deliberately employ  the  natural creative
potential   of     dreams   for   problem     solving  and    artistic
inspiration.  Athletes, performers, or  anyone who gives presentations
can prepare, practice   and   polish their performances   while   they
sleep. This  is only a  taste of the variety of  ways people have used
lucid dreaming to expand their lives.
