Press release from: LSDBase

Lucid Scribe Database is an online sleep and consciousness research database that aims to document the effects of lucidity on dreams. The word lucid is defined as clarity, especially of thought. In regard to dreaming it refers to a state in which one is aware that one is dreaming, whilst one is dreaming.

The test subjects record their sleep every night by wearing a Halograph Frequency Monitor, a headband with a motion detector that is sensitive enough to pick up the heartbeat and can thus easily detect rapid eye movement (REM). The device is connected via USB to a laptop or net book and it plays a trance anthem whenever a dream is detected. The subjects can sometimes hear the songs in their dreams and act on that knowledge - by flying, for example.

The database consists of screenshots of the most interesting 60 seconds of each session and a brief description of the anomalies noted by the subjects, including any substances that were consumed or special dreaming practices that were used. The entire sessions can be downloaded for further study by other researchers and no subscription is required.

The administrators of the database maintain a list of high scores. It has the longest dream currently on record lasting 52 minutes, attributed to REM rebound after the subject skipped a night of sleep and stayed awake for 36 hours. The fastest REM onset from the waking state is logged at 7 minutes during a wake-back-to-bed exercise, where the subject woke up in the middle of the night after a few good hours of sleep and then went back to sleep. And the slowest heartbeat is clocked in at 50 BPM.

The software used to create and view the sessions, called Lucid Scribe, is available as freeware and is currently in open Beta testing. It plots the machine's CPU performance out of the box and can be configured to monitor the user's performance through mouse movements for those without halographs. Plug-ins can be written for third-party hardware devices including electroencephalographs (EEG) and any type biofeedback device.

"REM can easily be seen in the graphs by the naked eye with a little practice," says sleep researcher Michael Paul Coder from the Research and Development Division of lucidcode. "Now that the hardware and software required to detect dreams is nearing the end of the R&D phase our next challenge is to transcribe Morse Code directly from the dream world."
