Vividness is generally a measure of clarity and level of immersion experienced within a dream. Lucid dreams are not necessarily more vivid than non-lucid dreams.
A dream is generally more vivid if has some of the following elements:
- Clear, unobscured vision.
- A tangible sensory element, such as the feel of objects and a general impression of solidity and corporeality of the surroundings.
- A firmly rooted sense of self and form.
- A consistent setting.
A dream can be made more vivid by uttering a verbal command, for example "Increase Vividness!", or focusing on this intent.
