    The Oneironaut's Odyssey

    An Argonaut of the dream world, the Oneironaut. Every night a journey, every dream an adventure, every moment a treasure.

    1. #176 - Flat / (?) / Dragons / DC talk / Red car / Car park

      by , 12-09-2015 at 01:11 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      I've decided to commit to dividing my dreams into sleep cycles since I can now remember my nREM dreams. I didn't really understand how people could recall so many dreams before, but now it makes sense. I think there was ~6 dreams last night that I could remember, I know there was another but I couldn't recall it since I didn't write anything down about it.

      Sleep cycle 1
      Dream 1 - Flat (03:34)
      I woke up to my 2am alarm but I just let it ring for ages and fell asleep again without turning it off. After writing this into my DJ I decided to kick it for the rest of the night. I let myself rest a bit since I've been feeling sleepy during the day because of my night time drea journaling.
      I'm in a block of university flats standing on the driveway, it's quite nice here. My friend Giles is renting one of the apartments and I end up moving next door. It seems to be night time when I do and I seem to get pretty ecstatic about moving here. I'm happy and I end up running back and forth moving things into my room. I think I might be prepping for a gaming binge. I look up and see through the window my mate Giles, he's looking at me with this funny look that makes me laugh a bit. I end up shutting the curtains and hunkering down for the game/TV spree.

      Dream experience: 2 (pretty happy but not too vivid)
      Dream awareness: 0 (No real awareness)

      Sleep cycle (?)
      Dream 1 - (?)
      This dream was pretty damn sexually explicit soo I won't write any details. Pretty much just me and a girl having some fun, I remember a lot of it but I won't write it up ^_^.

      Dream experience: 5 (for obvious reasons, and vivid)
      Dream awareness: 1 (I had a moment where I realized that things seemed a little off, but I was too caught up in it to care)

      Dream 2 - Dragons
      This dream was so vivid.. Everything had a certain crispness to the detail. I was in a large glacial-eroded valley which looked very barren and was filled with craggy rocks on the flood plain. I think there was a river flowing through the middle of it though the area I was in was quite huge and I was a ways off from this stream. On either side of the valley were towering mountains, and behind me (kind of like the entrance to the valley) there was a large structure where everyone was hiding. We were hiding because... There was a powerful dragon around. This dragon was really ferocious looking, it had these craggy looking demonic spikes all over its body and a long neck which made me think it resembled a chinese dragon from the neck onwards. Previously we had managed to all run inside and escape, I believed that the dragon had gone now. I was standing outside, the weather was overcast but it looked so cool. *RROOOARRR* Oh shit... It's back? I look up left towards the mountain peak in the distance, but a different dragon swoops into view. Oh, wow... This really is not good. This dragon is a different colour and slightly different in size and shape, but it still has that insane, crisp, sharp detail to it. Its wings have a certain blue hue to the underside which seem to resonate a sort of magical power. The beast turns its gaze onto the valley, I start running hoping to make it back inside. There's a bunch of other creatures in the valley so I hope that the dragon won't spot me, it's already leapt into the air and started flying down lower. I get the feeling that it will spot me as it gets closer.. I'm too far from the safety zone, the dragon has spotted me and it's swooping up behind me gliding really fast. I stop and get as close to the ground as possible.


      I open my eyes, I must have been knocked unconscious, what happened to me? I'm on a narrow path with two steep cliffs on either side of me, they're somewhat flattened. In front of me is a human shaped figure, but I know who it is. It's the dragon in human form. I have to follow him, he walks down the narrow path in majestic looking robes while I follow behind him.

      Dream experience: 7 (really vivid, cool plot and generally just a cool theme)
      Dream awareness: 2 (felt naturally aware, but not of the dream itself)

      Dream 3 - DC talk
      I think I woke up and fell back asleep, and this dream was a sort of 'continuation' with some massive differences. But the idea that I woke up in a strange place kind of remained and my mind told me that the dragon delivered me to this place.
      I seemed to be in a huge casino building, and the higher the floor you were on the higher your supposed level of power. I think I see a small little cat, poor thing probably hasn't been fed enough, its ears are huge too. I walk forward and I know that I'm on a really high level but I shouldn't be here. I look at a card I'm holding and it says level 0 part 6. Geeze that's weak >_<. I decide it's best that I don't act suspicious, better play it cool for now. I walk around in the level I'm in,

      There's beautiful women everywhere.. Hmm I should go talk to one, but they all seem so busy :/. I start getting the inkling of the fact that I'm dreaming, and as I'm walking I turn and see a man standing behind a bench, maybe he's a barman or something. He's a bit old and dressed rather impeccably.
      I realize I'm dreaming, I mean... Of course I'm dreaming? I just seems so obvious all of a sudden. I don't even need to RC since I feel like the dream is really stable too.
      "Hey can you show me something" I say to the man, I seem to convey to him that I'm not from this level and I got here by accident. The realization of me dreaming kind of happened simultaneously to the thought of saying this, and I had another thought that I actually wanted to ask another question instead. Damn. Too late :/ I wanted to ask him to let me meet someone. I had the intention that I would talk to a different DC but in proper length and ask them lots of questions for my dream goal.
      The man says a few things and I interact with him a bit, then I get ushered to the elevator by another man and they send me down level 0 part 6. Guh, I shouldn't have done that. I walk out into the new floor, looking around me I see that the women are pretty average. I really shouldn't have left that floor >_<. There's a bunch of people playing casinos, gambling is such a waste :/. I decide that there must be at least some pretty women to talk to. (For some reason I get the feeling the a pretty woman is the DC that will be able to answer my questions ). I wake up really abruptly, like I kind of just realized I was in my bed.

      Dream experience: 4 (semi-vivid and lucid, glad I got to talk to a DC but overall pretty meh)
      Dream awareness: 3-6 (at the same time I felt like I was highly lucid, I also felt like there wasn't a lot I could do about being lucid. I should have done a RC)

      Sleep cycle 5 - (>07:00)
      Dream 1 - Red car
      I remember walking with my dad, we're talking about stuff but I can't remember what. We walk through a car park and it's a sunny day. We make it to his car, but it doesn't look like his car. It's a red hyundai rather than white, hmm that's strange.

      Dream experience: 1 (we were just talking and walking to his car. meh)
      Dream awareness: 2 (might have become lucid had I RC when I realized he had a different car)

      Dream 2 - Car park
      I seem to be in the car park of the casino building I was in earlier in the night. I'm with my dad and we're heading to get the car (like a prequel story to the last dream or something). On the way we're near the exit of the car park area (our car was in a different car park) and we see a couple of girls that are advertising the casino place. There's a crowd around them and there's an overseer who's making sure they're doing their job. That's screwed up, they're in such skimpy outfits, they must be freezing. They huddle together and shiver as if to emphasize this thought. Me and my dad step up and try to help them out, we're like protesters or something.

      Dream experience: 4 (seemed pretty emotional and vivid)
      Dream awareness: 1 (not very high awareness)
    2. #134 - Rich look / Eminem Concert

      by , 10-21-2015 at 02:51 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)

      I tried to SSILD last night but nothing happened which was disappointing. I attempted to use it to get a WILD-type lucid but that failed and I didn't even get a DILD as a back up .

      Dream 1 - Rich Look
      I had woken up earlier before this dream and couldn't be bothered going to the toilet, I almost paid the price.
      There was some competition to win an expensive sports car (like $100K) and a $1000 tennis racket, along with other stuff too I think (a fancy suit maybe). It was supposed to be some kind of opportunity to spruce yourself up and look really good in order to appeal to the ladies or something. I don't think I wanted to win, in fact I don't think I did. But then I was the winner and I walked into an apartment that was mine now, it was inside a very dull grey carpark building. I just remember really needing to pee so I went to the corner of the room and did it, behind the couch... O_O... I woke up thinking "Omfg please tell I didn't just..." and patted my bed a bunch. All was safe which confused me because I no longer needed to pee either.

      Dream Fragment - I remember standing in the toilet and unzipping my fly to take a leak. Only thing is... My pants in RL didn't have a zipper that day, they had these annoying button things. Conspiracy? Nope, just a dream.

      Dream 2 - Eminem Concert
      This dream was pretty cool, it took place in a huge stadium with Eminem rapping on the stage. I don't think it was his music he was singing but oh well. Everything was dark and the stage was the primary source of light. It illuminated a huge crowd of people jumping around and enjoying themselves. I was somewhere far off to the right of everything kind of just observing everything while all experiencing it somehow (dream logic?). It was the end of the concert now and Eminem took out a golden record disk. It looks incredible, it must be so valuable. He slowly and smoothly throws it and glides over the crowd. I'm in the crowd yet not, I'm observing but participating. I jump up from the crowd really high and intercept it, catching it and getting applause. Wow, I just got this?! I'm completely stoked. I decide to leave, and tuck the record away on my person, then crowd surf all the way to the back of the stadium and onto a walkway near the entrance. My friends and family are there too, just casually waiting for me so we can leave together. I look for the record so I can show them, but it's missing! Did I drop it while crowd surfing? Oh wait, I found it again. The panic disappears as I pull it out from under my shirt. I felt like it had been there the whole time and wonder how I could have thought to have lost it. It's in a paper bag now too, but it's obviously broken down the middle just by looking at how the bag sharply bends in the middle. Oh f*ck . My friends and family see this and start talking about it, even arguing and telling me I should have been more careful. One of them says that because it's the golden record label it's not actually broken which reassures me. I know that if I take it out then it will be fine, even though it's still obviously broken. Their still arguing though, I just suddenly have this outburst come out... "Shut up! This is the first time I've won anything in years, how do you think I feel knowing that it's broken?! This means a lot to me so stop harassing me about it". Wow where did that come from? They stop bickering as they understand that it's not something they should complain about, the dream ends.
    3. #45 - Poetic Racing/Geology Field Camp/Airport

      by , 11-03-2014 at 09:50 PM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      Black: Non-dream
      Blue: Non-lucid
      Red: Lucid

      Couldn't write this up yesterday, had trouble getting onto DV.

      The whole night of dreaming felt stressful, like there was just some part of each dream that made me stressed out.

      Dream 1 - Poetic Racing
      Intensely sporadic images of random animated over-the-top car racing, similar to the movie 'Redline' (which I had watched before going to bed). Insanely nonsensical, there was poetry too that felt unfinished. Like the sentences had been started but were left hanging.

      Dream 2 - Geology Field Camp
      Out in the paddock there's something like 50+ tents full of students. We're camping out on farmland for the 2 week field trip as part of a university paper. I get up during the night to go take a leak, but I just couldn't find a good place to go. I ended up going further than I needed to, and I must have woken some of the other students up. They came up to me and asked me where I was going and I told them I was looking for a good place to go, they joked around a bit saying stuff like 'why'd you walk out so far man' and I agreed, since I thought it was dumb and odd too (possibly an inkling of the feeling I may be dreaming). I then head back to find a closer place to go, they kick a shovel my way that I can use to dig a hole or something, and I whistle back in thanks. Unfortunately, my whistling triggers a super loud alarm which wakes everyone up! "Oh come on Alex! Jesus what the hell man", I just feel super stressed out, like 'oh god...' I just knew it was going to piss everyone off and they'd be talking shit about be for ages.

      Dream Fragment
      Somewhere at school, my friends showed up but it was really awkward due to an old 'love triangle' we used to have. The guy was dating the girl and we nearly had a fight because of the history.

      Dream 3 - Airport
      Me and my mum are driving to the airport, crazy random stuff starts happening to some of stuff the in the scenery, it just changes each time I look. The planes at the airport change into words, the change into vibrant colours, they stretch out, shrink, flatten, enlarge, and move to random places. The then change into beautiful retarded white horses, one of which was walking backwards with its head on the ground. We arrive at the airport and try to find a parking space, but they're all taken. We see a car back out and move in to try take the space, but we're outside the car now and the car has shrunken to the size of a book. I position it in the parking space which just feels to narrow, and there is an Indian man with his daughter sitting in a trolley, he's texting and is oblivious to our efforts of parking. He also happens to be quite close and when I finally manage to re-enlarge the car (first I had tried to wet it by rubbing saliva on it. Weird. Then I threw it on the ground) it nearly clipped the daughter in the trolley. The Indian man had a rant off at me and I had to remind him it was his fault, since he was texting and should have being paying attention (Sounds pretty harsh, but he wasn't very nice). Me and my mum continue into the airport, which appears to be more like a supermarket. I tell my mum that we should check out the horses and see if its safe to show to my daughter, we head over there but now they've changed AGAIN. One of them looks like a unicorn, one of them has a rhino horn. Some of them have long blonde flowing hair. Some of them look like rhinos, one had a fake rhino nose and long blonde hair. There was also a pygmy horse with stumpy little legs galloping around, all of the horses + rhinos had white fur. My dad shows up with my daughter and she's had her hair done, my mum is impressed and asks if he did it but he said no, it was her other grandma that did it.
