    The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey

    Hello and welcome to my dream journal. I try to journal all my most important dreams here, especially my lucids.

    I have a dream guide named Juliana. She takes the form of a twenty something witch that that looks a lot like Vin from Mistborn.

    Juliana also became a tulpa in October of 2021. Together we plan on fighting the evil witches in my dreams who seem to also know that is a dream.

    1. Hanging Out With Juliana

      by , 09-08-2016 at 09:48 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      Since my last journal entry I have had very bad recall and been very busy with the start of school on top of that so I took a little break to figure out my new schedule. This morning I woke up and realized it was a good time to get started again and did MILD.

      Hanging Out With Juliana (MILD)

      I am Supermans side kick or something. We are fighting Lex Luthor I think. There is an old lady crossing the street and Superman says to help her while he fights. I go and fly her across the street to her hotel and help her find her room. I get a sense that this is a dream and wonder if I will become full lucid. I finish walking her down the hall just to make sure I feel I finished that dream plot and do a nose plug. I think specifically about how I shouldn't fly out to superman and continue the fighting. I fly out the window and fly around Hollywood. I land and find myself in front of a 5 story building. I remember my goal is to just have a nice talk with Juliana so I stick my hand back. I feel her grab mine but it takes some focus to make it feel vivid. I say hi twice and then she responds. I look back and this time she has a buzz cut! It looks pretty good actually. She and I start walking and talking into the building and I say, "Wait. Every time I see you we start walking somewhere urgently. We don't have to go anywhere today let's just hang out and talk." "Okay, but lets go right inside here and sit down." She says.

      We go in and it's a hospital. We go in one of the rooms and sit on the bed. There is another patient in the bed next to us but they don't mind. I find on a table two giant delicious chocolate chip cookies and we each take one. It is really good! I say to her, "Could you show me more of your magic. Like something flashy and cool like the fireworks from last time." She says, "Sure!" and snaps her fingers and there is a bright blue flash surrounding her hand. "Cool!" I say. "How about something even more creative! What else can you do?" She says, "Okay. Look at that trash can." She points at it and a spark flys from her finger and into it. Two eyes and a mouth emerge from the front of the trash can and it starts talking in jiberish! "Cool! What happens if you make it inanimate again? Let me try." I have finished my cookie and stick out my finger to give it a try. The garbage can looks scared and pretends to be normal but I can tell it is just faking. "Here." Juliana says and sends another spark that makes it go back to normal. I start to destabilize and wake up or have an FA, I don't know, but I DEILD.

      I am in the loby of a hotel and skateboard out the door. Strange, I don't know how to skateboard well. I skateboard and follow someone on a bike. We fall into a pool and people try to help us out and I destabilize again.

      I am in a residential neighborhood and very unstable still. I walk up to a car and feel it. There are flowers growing out of the engine. I am stabilized now and decide to summon Juliana again. This time she has a brown pixie cut. It is much easier to summon her this time. We go for a walk and talk. "Do you know Androx?" She starts to think. "He is a talking cat, or a witch or something." She says she thinks she knows who I'm talking about and that it isn't supprising he found me. I say he sent me to fight evil witches and she starts laughing. "What? Are you an evil witch?" "No it's not that I just don't think there is such a clear line between good witches and evil witches. It just dosn't work that way in my opinion." "So you arn't a good witch?" She shrugs. "Well I guess you are a neutral witch then and I am okay with that.", I say. We pass by some people who are playing music loud. It is like metal mixed with drum and bass. As we walk away Juliana uses magic to make it louder. At the drop we can't help but start dancing to it. We can't really tell if we should be head banging or dancing like its electronic. haha I eventually wake up and decided to write this down before I forget it.


      I keep falling asleep though and eventually have a dream that I am Purple Man's pawn like in Jessica Jones.
    2. Magic Lesson One: Rock Climbing

      by , 08-17-2016 at 10:55 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I woke up naturally at 6:45AM for my WBTB which was nice. Couldn't quite remember my dream. My non lucid recall has been sort of shitty for the last week. I took 8mg Glanatamine and 600 mg Alpha GPC with some fruit. After a half hour of listening to anime soundtracks and setting my intentions I did some SSILD and tried WILD. I got some imagery that wouldn't stick and eventually got out of bed but the dream never stabilized so I won't bother putting an entry for that. I kept waking up and doing nose plugs but they weren't false awakenings. Eventually a dream formed but I had lost most of my lucidty.

      Magic Lesson One: Rock Climbing (SSILD)

      I am in a final fantasy style RPG on a game boy advanced. I remember playing this game before in a different dream and wan't to speed run through it to get back to where I was before. I set up my character and complete the first area to receive my sword. I then attack some enemies with it. I get to the overworld and make my way to where I can get my first companion which is a warrior guy. I then go through the overworld to a mine where I can start leveling the mining skill. I forgot though that you have to talk to this mole man NPC first to get access. I go to the first dungeon and also get a mage girl companion. We defeat the boss of the dungeon and I wake up a bit.

      I am a semi lucid now and in my own body. I am at the edge of my college at night. I want to keep playing the game so I pull a GBA out of my pocket and wonder how to get back into it. I start running around while I look at the GBA and thinking about how to turn the mechanics into a real game. I realize I don't have a GBA and remember that this is a dream.
      This is my chance!

      I stop running and actually skid because I am going so fast! It is dark but there is a street light so I feel comfortable. I see a DC is jogging along the sidewalk. I walk out into the street and remember that I wanted to try a stability potion first. I put my hand back and summon a bottle. It is triangle shaped with a small cork and green liquid in it. I pull the cork off and drink the entire bottle. The dream destabilizes for a second and then completely restabilizes. It isn't the most vivid dream but I feel like it will last a long time. Another random DC runs by. I say out loud, "Juliana, I am ready for my lesson." I flow energy through my hands and stick them out. "I now understand the importance of body, mind, and spirit!"


      Anime -esque flash back time! Previously when I asked Juliana to give me my lesson she told me to read some books first. I started with Journey to the West and read the chapter titled "Monkey King studies magic" The Monkey King (the character in my avatar) went to study with a sage to learn to be immortal. After 7 years he had to choose which philosophical discipline to focus on but was disappointed to learn that none of them would teach him immortality. The sage took him aside and told him he could learn the secrets of body, mind and spirit which isn't a formal discipline but the forces that hold the universe together. This is how The Monkey King gained immortality and a bunch of other magical powers!

      From there I knew the other books would relate somehow to the body, mind, and spirit. The book on astral projection is related to developing the energy body. The book on zen is related to focusing the mind. The other books where the Vedas and I learned more about the Ātman, the "true self". I can do energy flow simulation to work on my body schema and I can do zazen meditation to work on my mind but I couldn't find any meditation to work on the spirit. Considering I don't believe in a literal soul stuff like transcendental meditation seems like complete bullshit. I ended up realizing that just listening to good music is a great way to meditate on spirit! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LaJoDAXkSMw Now, back to the dream!


      I imagine Juliana appearing in front of me in a puff of smoke. Nothing happens. Hmm. Well, it was worth a try. Another random DC runs by and startles me. What is with these DCs? I stick both my hands back and feel someone take hold of them. "Hi Juliana." I say. "Hey Matthew." she replies. I turn around and it's her. I hug her and notice she has dark hair again and her witches hat this time. "I'm ready for my lesson." I say. She looks around and takes in the environment. "It's dark here. Let's go somewhere with more light." and she points to one of the buildings at the college. We walk over there and I ask,"Hey Juliana, I'm curious, what is your natural hair color. I've seen you with red hair and dark hair." "My natural hair color?" she says. "Oh, it's grey but I'm always changing it." I say, "Grey? Are you sure? Okay." She looks at me with wide eyes and says, "Matthew, I want to ask you where you come from." I am a little taken of guard and say, "Haha okay. I want to know a lot more about you too." "Ya, but you sort of popped up out of no where and now I'm your dream guide but we hardly really know each other."

      We get to the door of the building and she opens it. It looks nothing the same on the inside. There are students everywhere in white uniforms. There is a staircase even though it is a one story building from the outside. We walk in and I see a door at the end of the hall with light coming through the window. "You did it! Let's go through there." I say. There are so many students I get destabilized a bit in the commotion but because of the potion it is really easy to stabilize again. I look back and see that Juliana has changed into a guy with aviator sunglasses on. She looks like Dave from homestuck but I can feel it is still her somehow. I take her hand so we stay together and we go to the door. "Let's make it a basketball court." I say as I open the door and go through. It really is a basketball court on the other side and it's day time! There are DCs talking and playing and there are tall buildings around the park.

      "Okay, let's start the lesson. We walk over to a bench and she sits down except now she is an indian boy. "I did the research on body, mind, and spirit." She nods and smiles. I go on,"Body I can develop with energy flow simulation. Mind I can develop with zazen meditation." She looks happy that I figured this stuff out. "Spirit I had a hard time with though." She looks concerned. "You see, I don't believe in spirits" She is about to say something but I explain myself. "Well, I believe in spirit, but not souls. In my mind, spirit is the essence of a person. Their passions, feelings, and relationships. I don't think there is a metaphysical thing determining those things. Not in the waking world but I would imagine souls are real in the dream world." Juliana looks very confused. "Waking world? What is that?" I say, "That's where I go when I wake up. You don't know about the waking world?" She squints at me and says, "So that is why there is something different about you." I ask, "So where do you go when you go to sleep?" She says, "Another dream world." I ask,"Haven't you ever woken up before?" She replies, "Not Really. So what happens when really wake up?" "Look." I say. "We should get to my lesson. Contemplate this and we can talk more about it some other time. Also, why do you look like an indian boy?" "Oh, sorry." She says and gets enveloped in a white light as she transforms. I stand next to her to help her get the height right. I ask to see the red hair this time. She looks like herself again with the red hair.

      "Okay, your first lesson." She points at some kids playing on the side of the court. The kids around here like to get them selves in all sorts of trouble. They go in places they aren't suppose to and do dangerous things." We walk down the court. "See all these tall buildings." I nod. "They like to climb up the walls and do graffiti way high up. The adults just can't climb up there to clean it but the kids never fall." We stop at the end of the block. "Your first magic lesson is to climb to the top." I ask,"What's magical about rock climbing?" She explains,"I know it isn't extravagant but it will teach you all the principles. Go ahead and choose a building and get climbing."

      I choose a building and start pulling myself up on the brick and engravings. I get up a ways and find myself at a difficult spot. "Look at 11 o'clock." I look up and a bit to the left. I see a flourish decoration that will make a good handhold. "Thanks Juliana!" I say and keep climbing. "What is this dreamviews thing on your phone?" she says. I look down and I am higher up than I thought. "Hey, what are you doing with my phone?" I shout. "Don't fall and wake up or you will loose your cell phone!" she says. "Even if I wake up I won't loose my phone." I say and keep climbing. "So what happens to your stuff if you wake up? Doesn't it disappear too?" she says. "Ha ha that isn't how it works." I say. "When you go to another dream world you don't bring your stuff. If you are inexperienced that is. Hey, who is this Chiara girl? Is she your giiiiirfriennnnnnnd?" she giggles. "Yes, that's my girlfriend." I say. "Your waking life girlfriend? Let's go through your texts!" I am very high up now but there is an over hang. I am starting to get the point of all of this. While I was distracted by Juliana I climbed much faster and easier. If I am just confident and go with it I can do anything! I make it over the overhang and can see the top now but I start to destabilize. I think about what I learned and use it to just go with it and stay anchored to the dream. I imagine myself holding the top ledge and the dream restabilizes. I pull myself to the top. Juliana is just a little dot now. I give out a victory yell and jump off. I float gently down and as I am landing near Juliana I take away her phone. I see that she has her hat off so I take that too and plop it back on her head. She looks a bit guilty but happy. I start to wake up and while I have more to say to Juliana I feel like it is time. After all, I have a lot of dialogue to right down before I forget it!


      So my feeling was right! Juliana does know it's a dream but I am surprised she didn't know there is a real waking world. I look forward to continuing that conversation and my magic lessons.
    3. Galantamine Works

      by , 08-04-2016 at 11:46 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      Yesterday I received my package of galantamine and alpha gpc. This is my first time using these supplements. I don't like to rely on supplements but I have heard good things about galantamine and wanted to give it a try. I am not very good at WILD because I take a while to start dreaming. This should act sort of like training wheels while I build up my WILD skills. The only other supplements I have tried are b vitamins and choline which simply ensure I am not deficient. Galantamine, on the other hand, puts your brain into over drive and produces more acetycholine than it naturally does. Alpha GPC is a more powerful form of Choline than what I used before because I will need a even larger supply.

      After 4.5 hours of sleep I wrote down a short non lucid dream and took 8mg of galantamine and 600gm of alpha gpc with a granola bar and some water. My WBTB was half an hour long and while I started to feel more alert I didn't feel like it was a good night for WILD so I a mainly set my intentions for DILD.

      Galantamine Works (DILD)

      I am at some sort of makers festival. Adam Savage is giving a demonstration of a home made roller coaster someone made. In the dream I am an acquaintance of Adam's so he allows me to demonstrate it for the crowd. I hang from a little seat and swing around a track and it is surprisingly fun for being such a small ride. Afterwards, I go back to an RV that I guess my dad, sister, and I are renting for the trip. I see that we left it running and now the battery is dead and it won't start. I feel tired and stressed so I decide to take a nap. I also remember driving the RV through some snow covered mountains but I don't remember if that was after or before this section.

      I wake up in an FA and I am having breakfast with Harry Potter and the Weasley family in their kitchen while the sun is still coming up. Aurthur, Molly, William, Ron, and Harry are there with me. I find myself drinking a glass of burbon on the rocks. Aurthur says what I was thinking,"Isn't it a bit early for that?" Molly says,"Oh, dear, don't drink that. You will have a nasty hang over at the wedding." I take a sip and it tastes fricken delicious. It has strong fruity notes and a spicy kick at the finish. I say, "Try this though. It is so good!" and hand it to Aurthur and Molly for them to try. Aurthur says "hm!" and Molly says,"That is good!" Percy comes in a bit later and doesn't look like he does in the movies. He has glasses like in the books and longer hair. At first I wonder if he is Charlie but he says something pretentious and I know it's more likely Percy. Things start to explode around us and we take cover. I teleport outside and hide in the bushes except instead of The Burrow it is my family home. Voldemort floats up and shoots an avadakadavra spell through the window and I see Bellatrix Lestrange running and laughing. I teleport again.

      I am on a space ship that is being boarded by another ship. I am captured and going to be taken to be a slave of The Collector from Guardians of the Galaxy. Some of us escape somehow and end up on a grungy space station. My girlfriend is there now and we go into a dark room where a crowd is watching a play. It is about the religion Santeria and I have to explain to my girlfriend how Santeria works and isn't Catholicism. People shush us. After not to long the play ends and I go up to tell the actors and actresses they did a good job. One of the blond actresses says we should all hang out sometime and insists on getting our contact information. I write my number and email on a sticky note and leave. I am in a city on some other planet now. All the buildings look like they are decaying and falling apart. There are lots of DCs walking around in this area.

      I hear a voice in my head. It is the actress from earlier. She says that she has hacked all my accounts with the info I gave her. What the heck? She says,"Thanks for putting your username and password on there too." What? I didn't put my password on there. I start running and go into a less populated area. Where am I anyways? I climb up one of the collapsing buildings and stand on the roof. The city extends very far and is just as messed up looking all over. There is an ocean nearby and mountains and the sky is very blue.


      I become lucid and feel very euphoric and happy. I jump off the building and fall for a bit. I catch myself and feel that the gravity on this planet is a little bit heavier. I start flying out over the ocean where there mountains are sticking out of the water. There are tall stone columns like in Zhangjiajie China except sticking out of the ocean. There is collorful foliage on the cliffs and a giant waterfall coming out of one of them. This reminds me a lot of the Vision of Beasts in Far Cry Primal. It feels very trippy. I remember that to get the most points for Spellbee2's contest I need to do my third three-step task which is the completely phase through something. I see one of the pillars ahead and decide to use that. I prepare myself and fly as fast as I can at it. I put my hand in front of my eyes so I can focus on making my peripheral vision move as fast as possible. I remove my hand and fly right through the pillar. It is the thickest thing I have ever phased through and makes a phwomp sound as I do so.

      I turn back to the mainland and see the dead city sprawling before me. Only one building looks normal. It is a redish brick castle on a small rock island right off the coast. That must be where my dream guide is. I fly down to it and land on the highest tower. I stick my hand back and feel a hand take hold of mine. I start to wake up though and loose visuals. I am determined and maintain the feeling of the hand. I pull it forward and feel the rest of the arm too. I feel a dress that feels like the one my dream guide wore the first time we met. She jumps up and hugs me with her legs wrapped around me. I still can't see anything. I hold her up and compare our heights. I estimate that she is about my height but taller than me with her heels on. "Dream guide?" I say. I try and see her face and I am a bit startled as my vision comes back suddenly and a bit distorted. She doesn't have a witch hat on this time and I try and see the color of her hair. It starts out red but as the dream stabilizes it becomes dark purple. "Hi Monkey." she says with a kind smile. She looks slightly different than last time with dark hair I think but it is definitely her.


      My dream journal says the first time I met her her hair was probably dark purple although I had a hard time remembering for sure. The second time it was definitely red. A few weeks later when I saw this wallpaper for Runescape. I knew that was almost exactly what her face and hair looked like. Now that I pull up that wallpaper in photoshop and make the hair purple it does in fact look how she looks in this dream!


      "I'm sorry. I never asked your name when we first met." I apologize. Somehow a name comes to my mind, however. Juliana Is that a false memory? Did I ask her name in a previous dream and forget until now? "You don't remember?" she says. "Well, actually, now I don't know." I reply. "Go ahead. Say it." she insists. "Juliana?" I ask. "Bingo" We start walking toward a walk way along the castle walls. "Where have you been this whole time Juliana? I don't mean to be rude but you haven't exactly been much of a guide." I ask her. "Where have I been? It's not like you haven't been absent too. I'm a busy lady. This last couple days I was captured while fighting against the Darshana. Aleins that are working for ?????? I don't remember the name here. She starts to explain more stuff but I stop following her and say "Wait, before we get any further, will you follow me around till the end of this dream?" "No" she scoffs "Your following me. I'm the guide." "I just have to ask that for the Task of the Month." I explain. "Fine" she says and we start to walk again I see that we are walking up some steps toward some sort of dome structure. "You sure are spunky Juliana. Oh, also tell me a secret of AndresLD's." I ask. "Andres? Hmm." she pauses. "Stay away from him for a while. In your dreams I mean. He is still recovering from a dry spell and has something he needs to work through first." She goes back to explaining how she escaped from the aliens and ended up here sort of like how I did. I ask her what is this place and she says it is a planet called "Drywall". The aliens work for her nemesis, an evil witch. She seems to imply that I have met her before. I have another one of those vague memories of a blond witch. "But wait I'm friends with a blond witch. That isn't her is it?" I think. Juliana asks, "Don't you remember?" . I have a hard time telling what memories are real and what are false. "Wow my dream memory can be really shit sometimes huh." I say.

      We are entering the threshold of the large open dome. It may be some type of observatory. "Juliana, slow down real quick. Where do witches get their powers anyways?" She starts to explain but it goes a bit over my head and is hard to remember. I start to wake up and try to DEILD but fail.
      I wake up in my sister's house in Fresno although it isn't really layed out accurately. I get out of bed and the sun has come up but my brother in law is the only one awake. "Hey, It's been a while hasn't it?" he says. I wonder, how long has it been. It can't have been more than a couple months. I think this must be a FA so I do a nose plug but surprisingly no air gets through. That's weird. I go to the window and there is a large pumpkin bounce house. I do two more RCs and they both fail and I wake up for real at home.

      After waking up I felt a euphoric feeling both from the galantamine and from the fact that I completed a goal that has meant a lot to me since 2011. I had a barely perceptible jiteryness in my arms that comes with taking higher doses of galantamine. I also felt pretty wiped out from having such an intense dream and didn't feel capable of going back to sleep for more. I am definitely going to take 4mg next time so that my body can get used to it. I won't take galantamine more than once a week and reserve it for special occasions because it can build up in your system and mess up your sleep schedule. I have to say though it was very successful!
    4. Who is Androx?

      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.

      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.
