I heard it was 999 somewhere....they say images in dreams are upside-
down and backwards...which is even odder because I see and read things in dreams, and I have no issue with the words or numbers being different...
Well, likely just another skewed theory....We honestly know nothing. No one can prove diddly. There is only one Truth. It is the Bible.

Ahh, but you could be walking on clouds talking to rocks in dreams; You wouldn't see anything wrong normally...
The exception is that you realize it's a dream...

Hmmm...When I dream (What I remember afterwards), if I dream long enough, I start to notice I am dreaming. Sometimes, something will be very out of place (Snow in the house, clocks running backwards, my ex-wife appologizing to me...etc) and I "take control" of the dream. It's called Directed or Lucid Dreaming. And I just Googled it and I am rather
pleased with myself. It seems something I thought was normal, isn't.
Ok, I am going back to MM#4...IT HAS TO BE TOMMORROW!

It's Lucid Dreaming...

To Regen:
First you have to be able to REMEMBER your dreams!
It's useless to lucid dream, and not remember it

It's a skill you need to work up to...(You might not be able to at all, it's just because it's a skill, some people born with it, and some people cannot get it and everywhere in between)
Search for 'Lucid Dreaming' on google
First you need to be able to remember dreams
Then you need to be able to know it's a dream
Finally you learn to Lucid Dream...
And it's not every dream you can Lucid Dream...

Reading the Wikipedia article would probably be quicker and more accurate in this case.

Sometimes I'm able to control my dreams too.
I realize I'm dreaming but am I really able to control it?
Maybe I'm just dreaming...

I can often recognise it's a dream, and once or twice I've woken up and continued the same dream, but i don't seem to have many dreams any more.

Nor have I! It's been like 5 months since I've had a dream.

You're wrong there. When I have a dream, I remember it well, and except for earthquakes, I always have a peaceful night's sleep, which means that I rarely have dreams.

The way I know if I am dreaming is, if something is out-of-place, (e.g. Ex-wife
saying sorry for what she put me through), I bite my thumb. If it feels funny,
I know. (I've bitten my thumb in reality to check sometimes too! )
Believe me on this one. The last thing you want, is to think you are dreaming
and try something really stupid, like challenge someone taller and bigger to a
fight or practice your flying.

Well, I dont do it all the time and I dont remember all my dreams. But I know
I have them every night. When I can lucid dream, I can change some things,
like move objects with my mind (like make clocks run backwards). Or
"summon" people I know into my dreams...like my mom or dad (whom I miss
both dearly).
Flying, however, is...a bit tricky. I can levitate, but I cant hold myself up for long.
Secondly, I can't for the life of me figure out why I cant run or walk fast
without it accually "hurting". I cant explain fully, but if I am
dreaming, and I am running from something, I slow down further (like in gooey
caramel, or deep water), and to try to run faster, or walk faster, it...hurts.
But if I know its a dream, I still have that problem....odd.
I'll have try something different next time....

But the best part of Lucid dreaming is, I know there is reality on the outside. I
know I am only funtioning within my own mind. I know I can wake myself up
when I wish. It makes me feel quite in control and powerful (If only in my
dreamstate).
How I, or anyone else can do this, is unknown to me.
I have only been able to go from reality to dream with full knowledge of trying
to Lucid dream only once. Meaning, I didnt have to "wake up" in the dream. I
went straight to dream intending to do just that. Then again, I havent tryed
since....hmmm...guess I'll try it again soon...and see what fun I really can
have while in there....

I can wake up at will! I just open my eyes, but it's trickier than it sounds. What's scary, is when I touch somebody or something, I turns into something else like when I was being attacked by a mutant trees, I touched one and it turned into a pen covered in a dusty rag. Or once I touched a giant bear and it faded into a mountain.

I can wake up at will as well, but I only do it when I'm having a bad dream. In which, I have to go to school on a Saturday, or something like that!

During normal operation, your brain erases all dreams from your memory before you wake up. If you remember a dream, that was a mistake. You weren't supposed to. Read this:

Therefore, if individuals feel that they did not dream or that they only had one dream in any given night, it is because their memory of the dream has faded. This "memory erasure" aspect of the dream state is mostly found when a person naturally awakes via a smooth transition from REM sleep through delta sleep to the awake state. If a person is awoken directly from REM sleep (e.g. by an alarm clock), they are much more likely to remember the dream from that REM cycle (although it is most likely that not all dreams will be remembered because they occur in REM cycles, which are interrupted by periods of delta sleep which in turn have a tendency to cause the memory of previous dreams to fade).
The emphasis is mine.

Hey Ducky!
Try turning around in your dreams when you are running from something...
It just might work...
You've got nothing to lose if it's a dream...
