It is the „silver bullet to the unconscious mind” said Freud about the dream. It is a waste-product of neuronic activity is the quote of brain-researcher. Nevertheless: the scientific occupation with dreams booms. One reason is current discoveries of the abilities of lucid dreamers. To a certain point lucid dreamers are able to influence and direct their dreams.

They use their sleep to to things they can´t being awake. X:enius-presenters Dörthe Eickelberg and Pierre Girard meet psychologist Dr. Ursula Voss, who explains how lucid dreaming can be trained and how science benefit from this special talent.
