Regardless, you should check out that blog because it's pretty good stuff. I'll offer you the graphic included in the link, since it has a ton of useful information.
|This pretty much covers it.|
As the caption says, that graphic pretty much covers it.
My only contributions are from personal experience. Here are some of my reality checks:
- Push two fingers against the palm of the opposite hand - results in reality and dreams tend to differ.
- If there are light switches, flick them - generally nothing happens in dreams.
- Push against a wall - sometimes, in dreams, your hand will go through.
- Try pinching yourself hard - usually it does not hurt in dreams.
I like the nose/breathing idea, I might also incorporate that. The text and mirror examples are context sensitive, but good, though the mirror test can be frightening at times.
Alright, I have a ton to do in the morning, so thanks for reading and check out that blog!
