Where would we have learned this - under what circumstances? I've always wondered where the knowledge comes from.
Floating, soaring, the feeling of ascending and decending, navigating around things, that feeling of steadying yourself when you were off your balance for a moment.
Whether in regular dreams, lucid dreams, or just in you imagination - how do we know all how to do this?

Well, this is what I came up with after reading your question...
Maybe learning is just another part of this physical illusion.
Because our source already knows all and we are all interconnected as one.... so if we are all things, what is there that we wouldn't already know? Since we are an extension of our source, and our source is the source of everything else, than we already know anything and everything because it is a part of who we are.
So learning is like a gradual release of resistance to whatever subject... so it creates the illusion that you didn't know it, but you always did.
Why create this illusion? The same reason we dip down into the negative. Because "learning" makes us feel proud, strong, encouraged, independent, productive, intelligent, etc...
Not sure how anyone else feels about that idea, but I like it:)

This is a very interesting question. I believe it is because it is natural to us in the spirit. But body positions for flying I believe we learn. For example we see the movie Superman or watch Capitan Marvel and think about flying like them. Flying stretched out looking forwards with arms and legs extended. But when we notice we are most natural is when we find we are flying like as if we were standing up flying through the air. I noticed I used to fly prone like Superman or Capitan Marvel but one day I remember clearly I was flying with my arms out and legs spread like a star standing upright like Leonardo DA-Vinci's painting of man. I was flying low I could see the ground below me zooming past. But then one day I remember seeing pictures of Buddhas and Tibetan Saints flying sitting in the lotus position, legs crossed upwards. I like this most myself I just lift up my legs and fold them and off I go.
I could change my speed of flip end over end, or fly up side down I just had fun. :-)
I believe regardless of body position we naturally know how to fly because we are not only these bodies but spirit and soul as well.
I know the experience you're describing mainly from lucid dreaming but I've never wondered how come I'm able to do it! Lucid dreaming (and other similar states) have given me a strong sense that I am not (only) my physical body. Somehow, the non-physical body state (for want of a better expression) comes so natural that I've come to the conclusion that I am mainly an energetic being that spends some of the time in a physical body. The latter is not made to defy gravity but I don't think this restriction is the natural state of our being. In other words, I believe we've known all those things before we ever entered our physical body.

@Grace- I read your question, and immediately thought of a question I have always wondered about...Why is it that, if I had a tail, I would be able to use it with ease??? I can "feel" in my brain where the tail-driving cells are....Interesting, huh? BTW, I actually left my body and flew as a child...That is why we remember- we came down from Heaven before birth...♥♥♥!!!!
