Title: Reflections on insight : a reply to Lana Kühle
Online publication date: 18-Nov-2016
Language: english
Abstract: In this reply to Kühle, I will respond to her comments on the role of insight in lucid dreaming, especially regarding the question of whether it may be knowledge-based or instead express a sensorial experience. My answer rests on experimental findings, acknowledging Kühle’s remarks, and taking her methodological challenges into account. I will challenge her proposal that insight might be called a state, opting for a definition of a transient thought atypically embedded within the state of dreaming, which may suffice to retrospectively call a REM dream lucid, but which will not satisfy the assumptions underlying the existence of a state.
