Everybody that I know of has lucid dreams once in while.
The whole point of being an intelligent dreamer is to 
wake up and say, "that was a good dream"!!

There are several newsgroups who requested that the
"dreamers" do -not- post their "theories" to their 
newsgroups. The only reason you are still allowed
in sci.physics is that it is good to know what 
models of the universe do not model anything.
