Lucid Intent? Yes Lucid Technique: WBTB

I woke up 2 hours ago and just now started recording this, so the memory is kind of vague. A few scenes that stand out:
My sister and I were walking on the sidewalk downtown at night and I found a glass box that appeared to have a glass brain carved out of its center. Small green and red dots lit up an area near the center of it (in the area of the pineal gland). Then I saw at the street corner there was a store which had these boxes at its entrance, advertising them. I went into the store to return their lost property. Three employees were there and I didn't know who was the manager, but the one who took the box then threw it away. Then I found out that my sister had paid $11 just to get into the store and it pissed me off that she'd paid for nothing - for that price, we should've at least been able to keep the brain box, because it didn't cost any more than that and they'd just thrown it away.
I was with a woman who had black hair and large eyes and lips. We were playing in a BDSM club and I was the submissive. Then I met another woman of the same height with the same hair but a different face. She wanted me to go to a different club that was about 30 to 40 minutes away, but I didn't want to drive in the kind of traffic the route gets, and thought I might get lost on the way. We agreed to go together with her 3 female subs.
I stopped by her place to pick her up. She lived in a small bathroom with her uncle or brother, and they were both plumbers. There were 15 to 20 bottles of corrosive lemonade under the sink and she was washing it off her hands when I got there. Her 3 subs were kittens. One was orange, one was black, and one was purple.
In the beginning of the dream there was this really creepy scene where I'd put on androgynous clothes so I could accompany my wife and sister into a public womens' bathroom because there was a killer in there who'd killed there recently and I wanted to protect them. The walls and floor had bloodstains and it was very dimly lit. I was reading flyers on the walls while keeping an eye out for anything suspicious.
RECENTLY: I didn't record it when it happened, but I've had a few more instances of seeing the room through closed eyes while falling asleep, or my dream fading out but "overlapping" physical sensation as I start to wake up and perceive my body and the room.
Two days ago, I kept waking up and going back to sleep, back into the same dream but lucid, to explore it and try to understand the symbols.
In another episode during the last week, I was falling asleep and saw a large book in front of me. The text was very clear. I looked away, then looked back and it was still clear but none of it made sense this time. I kept looking away and looking back. It was clear every time, but became more and more nonsensical. I did this 4 or 5 times before waking up.
5 mg zolpidem to get to sleep, then 5 mg to get back to sleep around 08. Marking this one as lucid because of the notes at the bottom, as I can't remember on what dates I actually had the experiences.
