If we approach the supernatural as a technology of the unknown, what is its interface?

In a lucid dream, the dreamer has greater chances to exert some degree of control over their participation within the dream or be able to manipulate their imaginary experiences in the dream environment. Attempting to remember dreams or have a more involved roll once inside the dream is a regulated study of self and reality. The journey between these two states is a physical transformation of energy that with practice could be induced.

It involves incubating a lucid dream with affirmations and programming your next dream to contain per-determined dream triggers to prompt lucidity.

According to Carl Jung, the shadow aspect (an unconscious aspect of the personality which the conscious ego does not identify in itself), in being instinctive and irrational, is prone to psychological projection. Jung also believed that “in spite of its function as a reservoir for human darkness—or perhaps because of this—the shadow is the seat of creativity.”

By engaging our shadow on a semi-lucid plain we project our consciousness into the irrational world of dreams and travel towards the unknown. A perfectly contained place of fantastical exploration.
