One way to explore other dimensional realms is via lucid dreaming. Lucid dreaming refers to the ability to “awaken within a dream” and once you are consciously aware that you are in a dream environment, be able to exercise control over the elements of whatever might be happening. I think of this considered skill as “storyline editing on the fly.”
So, for instance, you can decide—within the dream—that you’d prefer the action to continue in another setting, such as on a beach instead of in a city bus. Or you could physically alter or swap out various characters or animals in the plot line, or (this is a lucid dreamer’s favorite) – you can fly at will.
The article I’m sharing here is from the World of Lucid Dreaming website, the impressive brainchild of an accomplished lucid dreamer named Rebecca. It’s so in-depth and loaded with graphics that support her explanations, I’m providing only the beginning of it here. You can click over to her site to continue reading if you wish.
Rebecca also offers a free lucid dreaming course that might interest you to opt-in for. Meanwhile, if exploring the 5th dimension is your cup of tea, I think you’ll enjoy what follows. I have not seen Interstellar (tho now I’m interested!), but this didn’t detract from my appreciation of her illuminating post.

One of the most enthralling concepts in Chris Nolan’s Interstellar is when the hero, Cooper, travels into a black hole.
(Don’t worry. It’s a “gentle black hole” so he can pass through without suffering the ill effects of spaghettification.)
Once inside the greatest mystery of the universe, Cooper begins to perceive reality in five dimensions. Count them.
But there’s a catch. Continue reading
