Chapter 89. Comparisons between daydreams and lucid projections

Differential The differential characteristics between daydreams and lucid projections are well
defined and unmistakable with regard to 4 angles of approach:
1. Coincidence When in the condition of the daydream, the intraphysical consciousness is aware
of being inside or coincident with the human body, in the ordinary, physical waking state. When in
the condition of the lucid consciential projection, the intraphysical consciousness knows and feels
that it is outside the human body or discoincident and is even able to see the dense body in front of
it (self-bilocation phenomenon).
2. Forms In daydreams, less dense substratums arise that are of a physical origin and are tangible
or palpable, such as a succession of mental images. In the lucid projection that occurs in physical
districts and even in certain extraphysical crustal or tropospheric environments, there is an
incontrovertible concretisation of much denser physical and extraphysical forms, thought forms or
3. Nature The daydream is a consciential condition that is far more oneiric than projective. The

consciousness itself distinguishes the major lucid consciential projection in all its aspects, from the
consciential states of dream, nightmare and daydream.
4. Clairvoyance The manifestations of the daydream are similar in part to those of travelling
clairvoyance, although the latter presents clearer story lines and goes far beyond the
inconsequential simple mental elaboration of the human consciousness.
Ascencional It is curious that the condition of the daydream (as well as the ordinary dream) shows
itself to be so different from the condition of consciential projection that is also ends up constituting
a process whereby the consciousness can project itself from the human body, called ascensional
daydream or guided daydream. This technique is based on the act wherein the intraphysical
consciousness, while in the ordinary, physical waking state, imagines leaving the human body and
rising up through space, with the help of rhythmic respiration, after preparation through the
Chapter 95. Comparisons between dreams and lucid projections

Differential The basic differential characteristics or natural, common dreams and the lucid
projection of the consciousness from the human body are very distinct and can generally be
classified into two categories:
1. Subjective or individual
2. Objective or public
Comparisons The following are 33 didactic comparisons between natural dreams and lucid
consciential projections:
1. Beginning In a dream, the intraphysical consciousness does not start dreaming while in the
ordinary, physical waking state. In lucid projection, there are episodes wherein the condition of
continuous self-awareness is effectively maintained from the waking state, or, in other words,
before, during and after the projective experiment, without lapse or interruption in consciential
2. Vibrational In a dream, no condition arises that can be interpreted as being the intense
vibrational state, a singular phenomenon that frequently occurs before and after a lucid projection,
in a manner that is unmistakable to the projector.
3. Sounds In a dream, the strange intracranial sounds do not occur which are characteristic of the
consciential interiorisation stage and, less frequently, of the take-off stage, when the consciousness
projects in the psychosoma.

4. Takeoff In dreams there are no consciential impressions of the exit from the human organism. In
projection, lucid takeoff in the projective experience of continuous self-awareness is fascinating and
5. Awareness In dreams, due to their inoperative nature the intraphysical consciousness may not
always determine the oneiric images at will, but acts like a spectator or semi-spectator of a show
that unfolds before it, over which it has no control as, in fact, we do not dream, we are dreamt, we

suffer the dream, we are the objects of the dream, The projected consciousness generally directs
extraphysical acts and has decision-making capacity equal to that which occurs in the ordinary
waking state, because we are the agents of extraphysical events in which we are integrated,
speaking, acting and actually moving.
6. Activity In dreams mental activity is habitual. In lucid projection the consciousness inner activity
transcends the ordinary, physical waking state in richness.
7. Reason In dreams, full reasoning capacity does not occur with ease. In lucid projection,
reasoning faculties remain the same in the 2 states, the physical waking state and the extraphycial
waking state. They also often transcend the bounds of the ordinary, physical waking state.
8. Judgement In dreams there is neither time nor a clear, immediate awareness of experiences;
critical judgement is absent and the most absurd occurrences and situations are readily accepted,
because the consciousness is not sufficiently alert to awaken the sense of attention. In lucid
projection, critical judgement is always present and the projector is unquestionably certain that
his/her human body is distant form the consciousness, or, in other words, the consciousness is
outside of the human body.
9. Autosuggestion In dreams, autosuggestion does not influence the coordination of images. In
lucid projection, will or thought determine acts and extraphysical events.
10. Waking In dreams, the dreamer neither recalls nor is aware of the ordinary, physical waking
sate. In lucid projections, the projector maintains all memories of the waking state.
11. State The dream, as an altered sate of consciousness, does not present the magnitude of lucid
experience that lucid projection provides I a sui generis manner; the degree of self-awareness; the
sensation of freedom; the feeling of well-being; the mental lucidity; the expansion of a notion of
power; permeability relative to structures and physical bodies; volitation; extraphysical euphoria.
12. Quality In a dream, images more frequently appear distorted, unreal and full of fantasies arsing
from the creations of the intraphysical consciousness. In lucid projection, the consciousness sees
images and experiences events that do not become deformed, are real, occur in a defined
environment that is independent of its personal creativity and do not require interpretation.
13. Intensity In dreams, the images of the experiences are less intense than those of the ordinary,
physical waking state. In lucid projection, the objective images may attain the greatest degree of
intensity of all consciential states.
14. Images Dreams, although having weaker images, allows a stronger and easier recall because
they almost always occur when the vehicles of manifestation are nearly coincident or totally
coincident, or at least when the consciousness is in the proximity of the human body. Lucid
projections, whilst having stronger images, almost always afford weaker, evanescent and fleeting
memories, as they occur without the direct influence of the brain, the physical organ of the human
body but of the parabrain instead, the extraphysical organ of the psychosoma.
15. Predetermination In a dream, it would be useless to attempt to plan the execution of a specific
action, while in the oneiric state, in a specific place, chosen before sleeping. Lucid projection makes
it possible for you to carry out a resolution, made before sleeping, to direct yourself to a specific

location during the experience and realise the wilfully planned extraphysical action.
16. Translocation A dream allows deliberate extraphysical travel, but of a relative, illusory, internal,
imaginary nature that is merely thought by the consciousness. Lucid projection facilitates the wilful
execution of extraphysical translocation in a departure-return-new- departure, in the same itinerary,
giving the projector direct, irrefutable experience of extraphysical situations commanded by the will.
17. Body In a dream, the dreamer, given that he/she dreams inside him/herself (brain), does not
have the direct, objective view of his/her own human body when outside it, as with consciential selfbilocation, a characteristic and singular fact that lucid projection provides in an impressive manner,
including tactile sensation, self-embrace and the proof - which is definitive for the lucid projector
of the existence of the parabrain or psychosoma.
18. Reflexes during a dream, sensor stimuli produce fantasies. In lucid projection, during the
absence of the consciousness from the human body, small external touches made upon the
inactive human body provoke the return of the psychosoma with the unmistakable sensation of
traction of the silver cord, the admonitory discomfort, intracranial sounds and other phenomena
peculiar to extraphysical repercussions.
19. Interiorisation Those occurrences characteristic of the mechanism of lucid projection, such as
the lucid interiorisation of the consciousness whilst in the psychosoma, are not experiences that
can be associated or confused with dreams.
20. Duration It is very difficult to prolong a dream. During a lucid projection, the consciousness
determines whether it is going to end or continue in the extraphysical period and through
perseverant training, the veteran projector can voluntarily make this experience last for half an hour
or more.
21. Recall In a dream, the dreamer (oneironaut) most often does not recall the miages in a correct
and logical sequence. The lucid projector (projectionaut) can recall the complete, coherent events
of the projection in full detail. The projector sometimes does not even need to recall the facts,
because it does not lose awareness at any time during the experience.
22. Accomplishments Lucid projectors are able to see and participate in real events, as well as
describe actual places visited by the consciousness during the extraphysical period. These
accomplishments surpass the normal possibilities of dreams with regard to frequency, validity and
intensity of the consciential experiences.
23. Continuance In a continuance-dream, occurring after an intermission of awakening or sleeping,
the images continue in the same apparently incoherent and illogical manner as before. In a
continuance projection, the sequential images of the episodes are coherent and well interlinked,
whether according to the theme, the scenario-locations and the character consciousnesses of the
lucid proiector , in the first as much as the second occurrence. The second projective experience
undeniably confirms the events and experiences of the first for the lucid projector.
