Are you awake or are you dreaming?

“Attempts to wake before our time are often punished, especially by those who love us most. Because they, bless them, are asleep. They think anyone who wakes up, or who, still asleep, realizes that what is taken to be real is a ‘dream’ is going crazy.”

So wrote R.D. Laing, the controversial Scottish psychiatrist. And that’s the scary thing about lucid dreaming – if you become expert at it at night, do you also wake up during the day?
