It's because it can't. ^^

Lucid dreaming is 100% safe. Your friend must have been watching one "A Nightmare on Elm Street" movie too many because that movie twists the two topics of reality and dreams (since Freddy Krueger runs around murdering teens in their sleep).

If ever you hear people speak ill about LD-ing like that, tell them that whatever they are trying to prove are completely null 'n void, useless and contradict everything LD-ing is.

While reading LUCID DREAMING IN 30 DAYS by Keith Harary, and Pamela Weintraub.

The introduction said something I thought was interesting and may be what your friend is talking about.

They said that "dreams are a way for your subconcious to talk to you. Now if everytime you dream you go in and change the dreamscape and all of the DC and everything about the dream, then you are basically ignoring your subconcious."

So basically I think the message is that lucid dreaming is not harmfull, but every once in a while try and listen to your subconcious, because it is trying to tell you something. Always ignoring it, and taking control may have adverse effects.

Finite incantatem on that one, though I agree with that ignoring your sub-c can cause something bad.

I think people like your friend that said "who controls dreams, control everything" are misunderstanding a simple thing:
The movie "The Matrix" and LDing are NOT the same thing!!!

In "The Matrix", when they are in the "Matrix World" (which, for NEO at least, looks A LOT as an LD for us); They can control everything, and in the end, NEO changes the "Real World";

But if you live in OUR UNIVERSE, OUT OF THE MOVIES; LDing is just a way to enjoy the life 100%, even when you're sleeping!!! And if you're worried 'bout "listening what your dreams have to say", in a LD you can just ask: "what I was supposed to hear in this dream"; then, probably, your DG will tell you about that; And after all, Who understand what our dreams says in deed nowadays???

And more!!!

In a LD you can explore the deeps of your mind much more than in a ND!!!

I agree that you can ask your dream guide(subconscious) why you are dreaming what you're dreaming.

But outsiders who only hear that lucid dreaming is the ability to be aware in your dreams along with the potential ability to control your dreams, might not know that you can also use them to communicate with your subconscious. The OP's friend might not know that you can communicate with SC.

Yeah, because instead of studing dreams in a reliable place, He probably watched "The Matrix" sometimes... (and of course, some other movies also...)

Which could be movies like "A Nightmare on Elm Street", no doubt.

I don't understand how lucid dreaming could be bad. The reason people have developed techniques to induce them is because they enjoy them. Surely experts would have discovered any dangers. Also I would agree with others, there are alot of other things that people can't control- and mostly people aren't looking for control anyway, they're there for fun wink
