Have a semi-lucid dreams while having a high predisponsity for magical thinking and a low IQ.
I recently had the most curious lucid dreams. In it I was in a perfect replica of my apartment, but as usual, it was fairly dark and none of the light switches worked, as well as everything having a characteristic low-res filter over it.
So I realized I was dreaming and wanted to wake up. But the usual methods didn't work. So I had the idea of running back to my bed where in my dream, my body was sleeping. I then woke up.
That token apparently satisfied my brain to cause a "need to wake up" signal. And it really was just a ritualistic token.
