A mild is a mnemonically-induced-lucid-dream. This technique relies on your ability to use your prospective memory, your ability to remember to remember something, to remember to reality check to whatever cue you tell yourself to look out for. Just as you can go to the grocery store and say Ihave to remember to get bananas. And then on the way out say, Ijust know that im forgetting something. Oh, Ineed to get bananas! You can train yourself to reality check and question your environment to either a dream sign or, if your prospective memory is good enough, anything you desire.
