Who coined the word... "Oneironaunts", and what does it mean when you brake it down. I know its lucid dreamer, but what is Oneiron, and aunt mean?

"The term comes from the Greek oneiro which means dream."

"The term derives from the Greek words ástron (star) and nautes (sailor)"

Therefore... Dream Sailor!

I think that is what Stephen LaBerge calls the people who is trying to LD.

From what I heard. Fadem is correct. But It's used as the term for "Explorers of the Dreamworld". It's probably used in slightly different ways also, with some manifesto or philosophy behind it.

Yes, I believe it was LaBerge who coined the term "oneironauts" for people who explore the dream scape.
