Six enemies stood between me and their hostages.
My enemies held their hands out, as if waiting to grab me once I made my move. Their long, spindly fingers beckoned to me, wanting me to come closer, just so they could tear me limb from limb. But I knew better.
I stood, ready in my battle stance, wielding my knife.
Before they could do anything, I rushed the first one, doing a side-spin and stabbing him in his side, angling my blade upwards just enough to pierce his lung. In one smooth move, I pulled out the knife and slashed at the stomach of my next enemy, tearing through his abdomen.
Mid-arc, I turned the blade in my hand so that I now held the knife backhanded. As if giving my next enemy a deadly right hook, I sliced his face with the knife, and spun around behind him, stabbing him in the back. I pulled out the knife, and went on to the next enemy.
The next enemy I grabbed by the face, pulling myself closer to him. I stabbed him three times, once i

The concept of lucid dreaming is not at all a new one. The first recorded instructions for learning how to lucid dream come from an unnamed Tibetan yoga master from the eighth century, the author of "The Yoga of the Dream State."

Ouspensky's "A New Model of the Universe", in which it's called a "half-dream state"; Don Juan's "Journey to Ixtlan, which taught cues for becoming conscious in and stabilizing dreams; and Carlos Castaneda, apprenticed to Don Juan.

Today, December 18, marked a very significant day for me: the one year anniversary of my escape from the multi-billion dollar genetics research corporation, Sigmond Genetic Technology, the company responsible for my creation.
I was one of the results of a massive project started by Sigmond Genetics, called Project Superior. It started off as a project to create what their commissioners considered to be the "perfect soldier," who will never disobey a single order, and was far superior to the average soldier in terms of our senses, strength, stamina, and agility. I, however, was supposedly a mistake in production, a "bug in the system." I was not modified with the so-called "ability" of unquestioning obedience, meaning that I could think for myself, unlike th other drones created with me. I could make my own decisions, question what was asked of me, and, not surprisingly, disobey orders if I wanted to do so.
Simply because of the fact that I could act on my
