Another image from Maier’ s Atalanta Fugiens, Emblem  8, aptly depicts the moment of lucidity in the slicing of the philosophical egg, a portrayal of cutting through our conditioned worldview. This occurs when the dreamer withdraws psychological projections from the dream imagery, recognizing the dream as an illusion. To the lucid dreamer, this recognition is characteristically felt as an energizing shift in awareness. Neurologically, the electrical charge in the frontal cortex is increasing.[12]  This firing up of energy, when contained, as in the hearth, opens up the lucid dream state. In the emblem, this is indicated through the door at the end of the perspective lines that opens to another dimension.
