Hmm, let's see... somehow I found my way to information on astral projection on about.com. Probably through googling some random thing out of boredom. I had always had the desire to shapeshift, and even tough AP sounded far-fetched to me, it sounded like a potential means of doing the impossible, so I tried it for a while...

From there, I found my way to about.com's paranormal forum. Thought it was interesting to read and kept reading it for a while...

Then, I realized that GameFAQs had a paranormal/conspiracy forum, so I started lurking there as well.

Finally, I saw the link to LD4all in somebody's signature at GameFAQs and decided to check it out for some reason. I didn't really believe it at first, but then I remembered an LD that I had in the past, and realized that LD sounded more logical than AP anyway.

That's the story of how I got here on October 12th, 2003, give or take a few days. I remember the date because I remember that I had my next LD about 20 days after first finding LD4all.

I went to Wikibooks and searched for "Fly" just to see what came up. One was Lucid Dreaming. It was the best accident of my life. I read the articles, read some more, and finally decided to come here.

Short answer:
Wikipedia

Long answer:
One day something I don't recall any longre led me to search for "Lucid dreaming" on Wikipedia. I am really not sure what was the trigger - it's possible I was reading about sleep physiology before that or I just fortuitously invoked a derelict piece of memory, for I had once read about LD on some alt. newsgroup in the days when the Internet was a newfangled thing for most people.

I got here from my interest in ESP, which led to me grabbing an old paperback at Barnes and Noble called Mind Games, following the link, and then actually bothering to post with this account after two years of it collecting digital dust.

A friend told me about this a while back. So after a while, I got bored and decided to sign up.

Although I said that I got here by a friend, that's not completely true. If I wasn't a natural LDer, or I hadn't been lecturing my mom on my "waking dreams" and giving her lessons on how to get out of a nightmare (force yourself to scream as loud as you can, possibly transferring to your real body, waking you up; hitting yourself really hard on your head, either shocking you awake or transferring the motion to the physical world, and actually hitting yourself; or, my personal favorite, getting killed (with my special falling in circles aftereffect grin ) I would have thought he was crazy and gone on with my life in ignorance. But I didn't grin
