    1. Yet another bathroom dream / Counseling center / Helping a coworker / Snack time / Martian building

      Yet another bathroom dream
      I'm in a huge, fairly crowded bathroom. Dual sinks are in front of me, a wall is to my right, and a door is behind me. A long hallway extends to my left, and it Tees back to the right just past the sinks. Beyond the T is another door. Everything is very white.

      There's a thin layer of water on the counters and floor. I need to wash my hands, but I'm holding an armful of clothes and there's nowhere I can put them that they won't get wet. As I'm trying to figure out what to do, a janitor calls through the door that's further away from me asking if anyone's in here. She quickly realizes that there are lots of people in here, but she calls out that she'll wait for me - calling me by name! I don't understand why she'd pick on me specifically, or how she even knew that I was in here. Now I realize it's someone I know*, which explains how she knows me but not how she knew I was here. Now I'm talking to someone about her father, though it takes me forever to remember that his name is LH* (which, IRL, it isn't.). He died while she was engaged and never got to see her married (not IRL).

      Counseling center
      I'm driving around outside the building with the bathroom. I pass more than one entrance, each with its own large sign above the doors, and I realize the whole structure is broken up into multiple counceling centers, each with its own focus (e.g. one for moms, one for dads), but all run by the same people. After rounding the building, I find myself slightly lower down and at a dead-end. I'm not sure how that geography worked, but I know I'll have to turn around to get out.

      Helping a coworker
      I'm in my cube working with a coworker who has a terrible hunchback. I've talked to him online for years, but this is the first time I'm meeting him in person. He's having build problems, and I suggest using Git's bisect to track them down. He's familiar with the idea but has never used bisect before, so I walk him through it. Eventually, he thanks me and leaves. I check the time and see it's past time to head home, so I immediately shut down both computers and head out.

      Snack time
      I'm in some combination of pantry and kitchenette. I grab some chocolate chips, then some little candy bars, and put them in the front pocket of my church shirt. The pocket bulges, and I hope no-one notices.

      Martian building
      I'm looking at a building on Mars. For a building on another planet, it's really pretty boring, just a rounded cube shape, kind of an off-white in color. I know that something needs to be cut away from the outside. Now I'm looking at it again. The modifications have been made, and there's a bluish force-field running down the middle of the structure along with sensors which can tell when someone's about to reach it and turn it on and off.

      I had a dream that I had a lonnnnnnnggg time ago. It was from when I first moved into a flat with my current partner. In the dream we have a weird looking apartment that is somewhere a long way from my work but is cheap to stay at as its rented from my brother.

    3. Dollhouse Retrieval and Return with Golden Airplane Charm

      by , 02-03-2018 at 11:51 AM
      Morning of October 20, 2016. Thursday.

      My dream begins with a backstory involving a task which is apparently for a reality show. There is a feeling of comfort and happiness and of being in the right place at the right time.

      The challenge involves retrieving a two-storey dollhouse from the middle of a shallow pond. The knee-deep water is very cool and refreshing. The dollhouse is in a deeper area, mostly encircled by rocks that are just under the surface. Reaching down to lift it from the bottom, my right hand brushes a rock and I get an intense electrical shock that jolts my whole body and I even feel residual buzzing for a short time. My perception vivifies after this. I realize that only the dollhouse can be touched with the hands or a shock will result, which seems to be the nature of the challenge. I grab it by the roof and an upper window with both hands and get a vague impression that it is actually a miniature boathouse made of flimsy wood. I lift it up and tip it and watch and hear all the water flow out, as if it had been full of water even though much of it had been above the surface. I carry it back to shore with a great sense of enjoyment.

      There is a later scene in a less vivid dream event where two unknown males are trying to win the hand of a tribal princess. (I am unsure of the culture as even though it seems early Native American, it also seems to be in the future where there have been celestial changes, possibly threatening, though this is not a dominant idea.) There is something about shooting an arrow between two bows that overlap front to front giving the impression of a Venn diagram truncated at each side, the central area symbolically relating to the traits of the princess that both men desire, which has obvious sexual undertones.

      In the last segment, which is more vivid, an unknown male in a business suit is boarding a passenger jet near the outer boundary of a forest. (My view of him is from behind the left side of the aircraft.) He is carrying a large golden airplane charm which he had apparently won. He seems happy as he is walking up the mobile stairs.

      About 12% of my dreams (about 12 out of 100) render water as autosymbolism that represents entry into the dream state.

      About 23% of my dreams (about 23 out of 100) render vestibular system ambiguity as a flight symbol. In this case, vestibular system symbolism (autosymbolism that signifies being unconscious and emerging from the dream state) has three layers; the passenger jet, the golden airplane charm, and the mobile stairs. Gold symbolizes the emergent consciousness as analogous to increasing daylight.

    4. Work, Car, Void

      by , 02-03-2018 at 11:19 AM (Slash's Mind Cave)
      Tryna build my recall. As I write this entry I find myself remembering little glimspses of other dreams from the past few days. I won't bother trying to record them but I'll take it as a good sign. I can't even remember this morning's dream in a linear fashion, it's just an explosion of glimpses in my mind.

      In my dream, I was in my old job. I've had a few dreams with this particular element in it over the past few months. I also owned my last (late) car again. I drove about in my car before and after work, just like I did in real life. I smoked in the car, just like I used to.

      I was late to work, just like I used to be. But I was more late than usual. In fact this lateness has happened in every dream about my old work. I only vaguely remember dropping shopping off to customers.
      I remember driving about Glasgow in the work van filled with customer shopping. But only briefly.

      I remember a massive element of this dream was "The void" which I've been referring to a lot IWL in my efforts to spread enlightenment. I was teaching people enlightenment throughout the entire dream.

      I remember being in my car with an old friend, we were smoking. We went somewhere, I can't remember where, but I was getting later and later for work. I think I eventually said "screw work!" or something along those lines.

      Note to self:
      I am noticing "The Void" more and more in-dream. This is really good, it means my enlightenment is truly sinking in. But I have a feeling I can take this further and use it as a sleep/dream yoga. Especially when lucid. I seem to wake up a lot when noticing The Void. I often refer to enlightenment as "super lucidity", so it makes sense. I get super lucid and wake up.

    5. Dream - MYER Is My Store

      Date of Dream: SAT 3 FEB - 2018

      Dream No. 276 - MYER Is My Store

      I don't remember what happened at the start of the dream. From where I do remember, I was in a MYER store again, this time looking at Dangerfield clothes with my mum. I forgot exactly what we were doing but we couldn't take long in the Dangerfield section as we had to meet my dad and brother somewhere soon. We ended up meeting them at the MYER cafe but I forgot what we did in there.

      In the next scene, my family are not with my anymore. I went back to the Dangerfield section and got lost, so I was trying to find them again. I end up reaching this canyon-like thing and when I look down, I see the other three members of my family. There was no way to get down, no stairs, ramps, or anything else. So called out, “Dreamy WB! Please, help me get down there!”. Once again, she came straight away and in holographic form.

      Although I couldn't see her completely, I felt like I was pushed off the top storey and I was now levitating downwards in a sitting position. From her energy, I figured out that I was sitting on her lap as she rode me down like a rollercoaster car but much slower until my feet found the ground again and I became independent. That's all I can remember about this dream.

    6. The Strangest Episode of Ed, Edd, n' Eddy Ever

      by , 02-03-2018 at 02:18 AM (Random Awesomeness with Drop Therapy)
      I was in my Art class with a large encyclopedia, which I am assuming was at least 800 pages in size. I wasn't sure if any of the information was accurate, so I decided to go on the website of the encyclopedia. HORRIBLE MISTAKE. Upon being on the site, the whole screen went black and text showed up that said "this site is good" and a rapidly color changing ball bounced around the screen. There were also white lines that had a similarly colorful trail, as well as the whole screen changing hues. I couldn't close the site, not because of endless dialog boxes like in real life, but just because it didn't work. After that, the visuals cut to a music box, or at least a box with a spinning handle like an early 20th century music box. It was on a desk with countless other stuff like maps, bottles, and jewelry. The music box had a problem with the handle and stopped with the front of the handle facing the front of the box, but kind of down. What the thing was playing sounded like the transition periods between variations of excerpt C in The Chosen Priest and Apostle of Infinite Space by Bull of Heaven. It stopped very briefly for as long as the handle stopped, and then it would heave forward. The stopping periods were separated by about 2.5 seconds of music. After this happened, I ignored it and went to a simulation of Ed, Edd, N' Eddy in an Egyptian pyramid. I was controlling eddy. It felt kind of like VRChat. We passed through a corridor and found a tomb. I went back to the website and went to a friend at my school, who we'll call A. He checked it out, and it managed to disguise itself as a sound testing application. He said there was nothing to worry about, and when I went back to it, it continued the madness. After this happened, I gave up and saw Ed. I managed to convince Ed that he was some kind of evil vampire thing, and I said in eddy's voice as we left the classroom, "do you have anything to do?" and he replied with a maniacal Ed like laugh. I am honestly surprised the dream didn't end in an Iris-in and a transition to waking up.

    7. Escape From Somewhere

      by , 02-03-2018 at 12:05 AM
      I'm in some sort of institution -- I can't recall exactly what it was but it resembled some sort of summer camp. Disturbingly, there was an entire room filled with screen upon screen of porn.

      I recall, later, I met this girl and we both escaped from this facility over a fence. We reached this small artificial river which, according to her, was usually charged with high-voltage electricity (I watched a movie earlier that night involving an electric eel, so that might have caused this image to appear.) She later claimed it wasn't on today.

      At some point we reached a mall, and we were acutely aware that someone was after us -- I don't remember who. The mall was donut-shaped (sort of like the Hirshhorn Museum in DC). We were disappointed by the second floor, and I don't remember how; something about it being bland. My aunt was there at some point. I vaguely recall having to disguise myself with the girl.

      This all faded out. Unrelated scene in the dream, later:

      Me, my brother and sister, and my friend were looking for a place to eat. We step into Glory Days -- a sports bar+grill we have nearby -- and a woman at a desk tells us they're having deals because our local team (Redskins) won a game.

      Oddly, she gave us coca-coca bottle caps and told us to use them as coins in some sort of coin pusher arcade game. I don't think I won anything.

      At some point, I was flinging myself around a neighbor's yard in some sort of bungee system. In the dream I had a crush on some girl, though I don't remember who it was supposed to be, if anyone in particular.

      Vague snippet of me and friends watching movies in our basement.

      Some sort of delivery to our house?

      At this point, either I woke up or can't remember.
