John, your post reminded me of the film "Vanilla Sky" with Tom Cruise.
(Creepy and fascinating at the same time -- highly recommended. You'll either love it or hate it, but well worth putting on your Netflix list if you've not seen. Was the US remake of the Spanish film, "Abre Los Ojos".)
So, John, a tip: if at any time during your lucid dreams, it all starts going bad (e.g., you open pack after pack after pack but keep getting doubles, triples, miscuts, etc. and can't finish the sets; or you can't get the drugstore lights turned on, to do your middle-of-the-night work), don't hesitate. Contact "technical support" cuz it only gets worse!!
