I was recently discussing the term "levels of lucidity" in the group chat, and I think just as with the reality check/dream test terminology, it's important to come to a consensus of how we define this, as I found myself once again confused by how it was used - so let's discuss what we think "levels of lucidity" entails.
I propose, and I believe this was mentioned in Daniel's book, that lucidity simply refers to the knowledge that you're dreaming and fully understanding the implications of that knowledge - or, as Daniel so eloquently puts it "lucidity can be best measured by the appropriateness of one's emotions, thoughts and behaviours to the knowledge that one is dreaming". An important distinction to make here is that to me, levels of lucidity is not related to the vividness of the dream.
You can have lucid dreams with a low level of vividness, but have no fear of any monsters that may be in your dream, or the act of jumping out of a window , etc. You know full well that you're dreaming, and that nothing in your dream can hurt you as it's all a product of your own mind, so what reason could you possibly have to be afraid? This, to me, suggests a high level of lucidity.
On the other hand, you can have a lucid dream that seems incredibly vivid and lifelike, that engages all of your senses, but you hesitate when you want to jump out of a window to try and fly, just in case you're not actually dreaming. That suggests a lower level of lucidity.
How would you guys define "levels of lucidity"?
P.S. I know Daniel doesn't like this term - but it has been used in the Telegram chat a number of times so I'd quite like some clarity regarding its usage!
