I just had an odd dream where I had uncovered an alien infection plot, revealed it to the UN, and enlisted the help of Mulder and Scully to stop it. But the most interesting part, to me, was the fact that my character in the dream was lucid. Not me, but my character. He was aware that he was dreaming. But I was not aware I was him. Like I was watching someone else's dream. I suppose that's one way to add a layer of abstraction to keep from getting too lucid and waking up.
