>>2928>If it were just this then they'd behave like computers in 60s-70s science fiction or some other magitech.
No one would think this, or at least I wouldn't think so.
In my experience computer operation goes the exact same way as reading: things are garbled, confusing and frustrating. Any time I have actively tried to read something in a dream all I can see is nonsense numbers and letters spilled all over the place, and if I try to reread something it becomes a completely different set of nonsense.
A great exercise for anyone who becomes lucid honestly is to try and read, or even better yet, try and flip through the pages of a book and see if you can reach the end (I can't).
My experience is the same in computers: There's a million applications open and I can't find what I'm looking for so I try to search for an application and realize my search makes no sense, and so the results make no sense, so I go to change my search only to realize I'm not typing in a search bar and can't find a search bar at all, and the cursor is not moving the way that it should when I move it and I realize I'm not holding the mouse and was moving the cursor with the keyboard somehow, only to realize all the keys on the keyboard are wrong, or there is no keyboard at all and the computer isn't even on anymore.
