When I'm lucid dreaming I often have hedonistic adventures full of art and architecture, exotic pets, and interesting sexual encounters. Other times I just soar around overhead and take a look at the vast dream-world created by my subconscious, as if a drone, or like the concept of an Oversoul (see: transcendentalism). Sometimes I make paintings in my dreams, which I usually can remember when I wake up.

The psychological phenomenon of lucid dreaming reminds me of art-making and points to ideas of subjective reality and playing god/the desire for control. It also reminds me of the Alan Watts thought experiment, "The Dream of Life": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wU0PYcCsL6o
