      New Teleportation Approach (SSILD)

      NON-LUCID LUCID OTHER

      Some fairly boring dream stuff happens that's not worth mentioning. I am with my roommate and we are leaving a building. A large bearded guy looks familiar. We shake hands and I remember I met him earlier that day and he is friends with one of my friends. Unlikely I would run into him again so I do a nose plug RC and become lucid. I know I want to teleport to my dream guides house but this time my strategy for teleporting is different. If I teleport to the inside of the staircase I should be able to remember what it felt like because I touched the wall while I walked up it originally. I close my eyes and feel a step under my foot. I open my eyes and I am still where I was. I close my eyes again and feel the wall with my hand. I open my eyes and I am in a staircase but with the wrong kind of brick! I walk up the red brick staircase and end up on the roof of a building. I run and jump off the edge because I know the urgency will make my TP work. I imagine the feeling of the step and feel myself colide with it and the wall. I open my eyes and I am in the right staircase except there are far more windows than I remember. Little details like that shouldn't matter I think. I start to walk up the stairs but get so excited that I wake up.

      I decided to sleep in because I didnt work until later. It took me a long time to fall asleep but eventually I guess I did.

      Who is Androx? (SSILD)

      NON-LUCID LUCID OTHER

      I am sitting on a floor watching an old western drama on a CRT tv. It changes to a weird cartoon about a bank robber using a large spherical bomb to blow up the wall of a bank. I find myself inside the cartoon and the robber turns to threaten me. I run and he gets in his tiny cartoony vehicle to chase me. The vehicle is carying the bomb with him. Suddenly a cat jumps at the robber and knocks him out of the vehicle. The bomb falls off and rolls after me. I get run over by it and end up on top of it. I roll with it and the cat catches up and jumps on my shoulders. The cat can talk and tells me to stay calm. It is a ginger colored adult cat with a female voice. The bomb rolls into a river and we float on top of it along the path. It becomes more like a man made track with bumpers to keep it in. The track goes above ground and through some weird video game like dimension. I pump us up on a stream of water to a higher track.

      Eventually I find myself at the edge of a pond in a forest. I see a orange salamander about a foot long in the water it swims up to me and I get scared. The orange cat is there and is joined by a black one. One of them says "Don't be scared, its not fully grown and won't try and eat you." I feel relived until suddenly a massive 6 foot long orange salamander jumps and eats the smaller one. The cats guide me out of the forest and into a suburban neighborhood. We hop fences and run through back yards. The sprinklers go off in one and I see the timer for the sprinklers and I am going to turn it off but the cats urge me to continue following them and it's just around the corner. We go into another back yard. I notice there are a bunch of alligator ranging from small to massive. We even walked past biting range of some of them before I noticed. I ask what the heck and the orange one says it's for protection and that we should be safe. The black one says, "He is just a beginner though." They both run up to the largest one for some reason while I am more focused on the closer ones. I see there are a bunch on the steps leading to the back door of the house. The alligators start to approach me and I use telekinesis to float them into the pool which is surrounded by a fence. It is difficult but I remove all of the alligators. There are also two mastiffs guarding the door. I hope they don't attack me and walk past them to the door.

      Once inside I see a southern style home similar to one I drew for a storyboarding class but with a kitchen attached to the living room. There are two white cats sleeping in the floor. One is an adult and looks like my own cat actually. The other is a kitten and looks like Androx!
      I become lucid and the kitten lazily looks up at me. It's large ear unfolds from behind it's paw. It sits up and stairs at me.



      "Androx?" I ask. I look around to stabilize a bit and notice the other cat has walked away. After a long pause the kitten says, "Hello Matthew." with its androgynous voice. "It is Androx, right? Not Andrea? I had a hard time journaling that part." I say. "It's Androx.", says the kitten. I ask,"Are you male or female?" "Male", Androx says and looks fairly annoyed that he had to answer that. He walks over to a bowl of pet food and a water dish next to the kitchen counter. After inspecting the water he starts drinking. I kneel down to him and tell him that I need to ask him some more questions starting with what are witches and what are their relation to talking cats. Androx says,"Talking cats are witches that have transformed themselves." This confirms the theory that I had. He goes on to say, "We suspect that you and your girlfriend are ones too." I wonder if he thinks my dream guide is my girlfriend or if he is my actual girlfriend. "Do you mean Chiara? (my girlfriends name)" I ask. Before he replies Androx walks around the armchair and forces me to move around to follow him. I set in the other sofa and he jumps up onto the armrest next to me. I ask Androx,"How did you become a talking cat?" He says,"I wasn't always a witch. I used to have a family." He starts to get emotional. I find myself looking at eye level and wonder why I am not looking down at the cat. "It is hard to understand when you are little and your parents get foreclosed on." he says and starts to cry. Suddenly I see him not as a cat but a child about 11 or 12 with a red brown bowl cut. To be honest even though I know he is a boy he looks a bit like a girl somehow. The feels hit me pretty bad as I realize Androx is probably an orphan. I wake up before I can hear the rest of his story.


      I think that is some pretty good progress on the witch hunting front. Now I should probably start focusing on Dream Hero League Missions so I don't get to far behind.

    2. Androx the Space Cat

      by , 06-23-2016 at 09:31 AM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I had two interesting things happen last night. First, I think I had a lucid dream during non REM sleep. Second, I had another dream character persist over multiple dreams in a single night! I went to bed at 1:15am so I was pretty suprised that I woke up from my first dream at only 2:00am. Maybe that point me in a different state of mind that was suitable for persistent dreams.

      Non REM ShenanigansNREM LUCID?

      NON-LUCID LUCID OTHER

      I spontaneously realize I am in between falling asleep and forming a dream so I think I should try and form one my self. I don't realize I barely went to bed less than an hour ago. I claw at the ground and feel the carpet from my home. I still can't see anything though. I keep experiencing different visuals and feelings but hold my consciousness long enough until I am able walk around and see something. It is still dark though. I am outside a museum with my girlfriend on a moonless night. We are sitting on the steps eating a bento box. She starts smoking a long cigarette and I tell her that's not very healthy. It isn't like her at all which reminds me that this is a dream. I stand up and walk up the steps. The greeter lady at the door agrees that smoking isn't healthy. I go through the door and imagine myself at home. I am in my bedroom but it is still dark. I flip the lightswitch but nothing happens. I say "light up" but nothing happens. I can't seem to get much light into this dream and wake up.

      Androx The Space Cat Part 1NON-LUCID

      NON-LUCID LUCID OTHER

      I am in my hometown and find a little white kitten with very large ears stranded on the road. I take it home and show my sister. She thinks I should keep it and I decide to raise it. While I am alone in my room with the cat it starts talking to me in English! It has the voice of a little boy. I am suprised and ask it if it is a magical cat. The kitten floats up in the air while he explains that he is a space cat that is suppose to help protect the universe from evil. His body becomes a window into a vibrant scene of space. He tells me that he can teleport to anywhere in the universe at will. I think this cat is going to be very interesting to have around on my dream adventures but I don't become lucid. I don't really remember much else from this conversation. I know that the cat has sort off accepted me as his owner. It is sort of like an outdoor cat in that he isn't always around, he could be anywhere, but he come back and even follows me back to my apartment in Los Angeles.

      After I woke up I wrote down some notes and must have went back to sleep thinking about the cat because he showed up in my next dream the same morning!

      Androx The Space Cat Part 2NON-LUCID

      NON-LUCID LUCID OTHER

      I am in Arizona with my dad and sister for some reason. We are outside of some cabin and I want to go back inside but there are a bunch of snakes in the way. My dad and sister follow the trail the opposite direction and I am on my own. I am suddenly teleported back to my parents house in my hometown and the space kitten is there. I suppose it is the kitten that teleported me. I feel bad that I am having a hard time remember his name even though I know I must have asked it in the previous dream. (I'm still not lucid even though I know I met the cat in a dream) I start to remember that it started with an A. "I'm sorry but what is your name again?", I ask. He replies, "Don't worry about it. My name is Androx." "That's right. I remember now." I say and I remember writing down that name even although it isn't in my notes. I make sure to remember that name now because I feel like Androx will show up again. Androx says, "Matthew, I need your help fighting evil witches. Are you up for the challenge? I know that you already have powers but I am willing to give you even more new powers if you work with me." I think it sounds pretty cool but I am a bit skeptical since I only just met this cat. I ask him how should I know that witches are evil since I have only met good witches in my dreams. Androx explains that witches are beings filled with magical energy but not all of them are evil. A few of them are good or neutral and may be willing to help me. I notice that my niece and nephew are unconscious and seemingly being given a similar vision by Androx. I tell Androx to leave my family out of it to pretend like his is a regular cat except for to me. He says that he wants to give them powers too but agrees to hide his true nature at least for now. I notice that there is some sort of obnoxious main menu for a video game on the TV but can't figure out how to turn it off. This distracts me for a while and the dream moves to me being at a county fair until I wake up.

      I am pretty sure Androx showed up for a moment in a later dream but didn't play a roll in the plot. I think it is interesting that now I am better at chaining non lucid dream plots between different dreams. I should definitely talk to Androx in a lucid dream and figure out what he is all about. I am going to be a bit cautious because I recently watched Madoka Magica and feel like he is a bit inspired by Kyuube. Especially because of his voice and the whole witches thing. However, I think he is also inspired by Luna from Sailor Moon and the cat from Gab's avatar so I don't think I have to much to worry about.

      It seems like witches and magical cats are an important part of my dream world. This goes all the way back to when I asked a witch lady to be my dream guide. She also had a talking cat but he was black and fully grown. She only has shown up for a short moments without actually doing anything. Apparently she is to busy fighting an evil witch that is her nemesis. I have also seen a witch a few times in all white with wings that reminds me of Glenda the Good Witch. She uses healing magic. Gandalf has shown up a lot too but I guess he is a wizard and not a witch. It is sort of like how in a show or game you can tell what feels like a main story and what feels like side stuff and everything with witches has felt like main story. It is interesting that in Sensei's dream world witches are all evil while so far in mine they are all good.
