Notice to all users of the Holodeck:

There are safety protocols in place that cannot be deactivated without the approval of two commanding officers or the captain to protect users of the Holodeck from potential harm. However, every time the Holodeck is ever used in a nontrivial manner, no matter what the safety protocols say, the Holodeck turns into a deathtrap.

Unless you believe yourself to be adept at constructing a forcefield from your communicator and 19th century Earth tools, or you're at the very least not wearing a red shirt, you are strongly advised not to attempt to use the Holodeck until a designer comes up with a safety protocol that doesn't kill you whenever somebody looks at it funny. Even when you're not on the holodeck. Or in the same quadrant. Or time period.

In fact, if you are wearing a red shirt, Starfleet may not be the job for you

Conscious dreaming

In reference to the previous post, there was one very important point that I forgot to mention.

While I was dreaming, I eventually became conscious of my dreaming. I was aware that I was dreaming, except I had no sensory input. I was aware of the fact that I was laying in bed, but I was also dreaming, and had no feeling of where I knew my hands were. I was experiencing the dream, as though I were imagining it, only I had no conscious control over what I was doing. My subconscious was directly communicating with me at that point, showing me my dream. A very strange experience.

Unfortunately, this confirms that I cannot consciously control my dreams, as I have often tried to do. I have, in the past, asked myself, "Am I dreaming?" whenever I thought of it, so that if I ever happened to be dreaming at the time, I would realize this, and could do things I would never do in real life. How unfortunate that I cannot. An interesting thing to experience, nonetheless.
