  When I know I'm dreaming I'm more like Q.  I imagine
it and then it happens.   And then usually I'm not
bound by my normal code of ethics.   Though I usually
waste omnipotence on something stupid like stupid like
making a meatball sub so big that I can't eat it...
and then eat it or finding out what Jean Luc Picard
would like with an afro.

 I often realize dreaming and like it.  Much fun to be
had there.    I guess some people can't handle the
idea that the reality experience is unreal.   Most
people get really wrapped up in their dreams and WANT
to believe they are real.  In the case of nightmares,
they are just to scared to take the chance that it is
real.  I find I have less control over dreams when on
my AD/HD meds.  It is possible there is some
connection between AD/HD and lucid dreaming.  Deserves
some study methinks.
