    Can a Headband Really Help You Take Control of Your Dreams?

    A new device claims to give cues when a person enters REM sleep

    The concept of lucid dreaming—knowing you’re dreaming while it’s happening, and in some cases, being able to control it—has always struck me as the ultimate stretch goal, like learning to write Chinese or having one last growth spurt. These things aren’t ever going to happen, and neither is a scenario in which I would be able to control how I behave in my dreams.

    For so much trash as may be grasped thus?
    I had rather be a dog, and bay the moon,
    Than such a Roman."
    — Brutus (Julius Caesar, Act IV scene iii)
