I should correct you, Lucid dream = OBE (but with totally different methods used to get into the same mind state.)
OBE = real experience (not necessarily "real" though)
Thanks, your comment contributed invaluable information to the thread.
A lucid dream is in your mind.
A lucid dream is not an OBE. It is a regular and normal occurance. People seem to be very confused and mixing definitions all over this thread.
Edit: And yes I know it from experience. I have lucid dreams very often where there's all kinds of crazy stuff happening. The dreams reflect whatever has been part of my life whether recently or further back. People I've seen, movies/games/news or whatever media I've been exposed to, so on and so forth.
I'm aware I'm dreaming. And I know it's in my head - not some parallel universe or ethereal realm.
Edit 2: Forget the above - please explain to me how a lucid dream is an OBE?
