The Mystery of Free Will: Donald Hoffman
Lucid dreaming is often associated with the ability to control the dream space. Though this is not the definition of lucid dreaming, it often goes hand in hand and is something I disagree that this is the case in all instances. Lucid dreaming may provide a short cut to the “unconscious” allowing us conscious control of the environment, yet there is no way to prove this.
In this video the presenter discusses free well, the issue is that the conscious agent is not something we are aware of and control. This makes it so that the dream world, as the world we perceive is already predetermined by our conscious agent, which we are unconscious of. Lucid dreaming may provide a way in some instances that we become our conscious agent, yet it’s hard to prove that.
