Lucid Dreams And The Creative Will!

Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming by Stephen LaBerge and Howard Rheingold (1990) discusses creativity within dreams and lucid dreams, including testimonials from a number of people who claim they have used the practice of lucid dreaming to help them solve a number of creative issues, from an aspiring parent thinking of potential baby names to a surgeon practicing surgical techniques.

The authors discuss how creativity in dreams could stem from “conscious access to the contents of our unconscious minds”; access to “tacit knowledge” – the things we know but can’t explain, or things we know but are unaware that we know.
