    1. Competition Night #14: LD Chain (Stargate, GLaDOS, Sniper Cats)

      by , 08-10-2014 at 01:49 PM (A Strange and Nonsensical Adventure)
      Day 14. See if I can't get some LDing going.
      this girl in alabama is probably evil. Also the detectives don't trust the locals there.
      3 LDs! Through DEILD. RCS: nose plug, as usual.
      I realize that I am dreaming. Start of the LD has to do with this guy who got into college. He's like 18. I'm tagging along with him, and I ask him how old I look. He says 13. I say that I'm actually 17, one year younger than him. He is surprised.
      At one point after that I end up softening the ground for some reason, maybe to soften my fall, and the ground starts sinking underneath me, so I put it back to normal. I use "VERB + NOUN" commands to do so. The guy asks me about it, and I answer him.
      I RC to double check again and I fly up and up and can see the college/museum spread out underneath me. It looks like a fancy government building in England, and it is absolutely beautiful. I remember the competition and decide to try some things out.

      Summary: There is a lot of walking/flying through this strange landscape that alternates from Grand-Canyon-esque (lots of rocks and stuff) to buildings and maybe even a town. I'm exploring this place and trying to do some tasks...
      Flying: I fly up a lot. I want to do a freefall. The first time, I manage to get high up but get stuck in this mountain thing. The mountain reminds me of minecraft. I eventually land on a ledge in the deep mountain crevasse and walk. The mountain is brightly lit and I eventually reach the outside. The second time (near the end), I manage to fly really up and then fall and hit the ground unhurt.
      I walk through this building. At one point the building is surrounded by sniper cats because cats have taken over the world. In that part I had grabbed a cat plushie for some reason and when I looked outside I saw cats with guns. There were people still inside the house and when they asked about the outside, I told them "militants" or some such.
      Stargate: I manage to find a Stargate (after a lot of exploring) and walk through it, though it turns into a Portal like thing. It doesn't seem like an actual Stargate. It activates on its own, and when I walk through it, I hear GlaDOS speaking and I get accelerated to this other side of the room with another gate. So two of them are connected in one room. Also there may or may not have been energy bursts.
      After the Portal thing: I come face-to-face with this weird monster thing and I freak out. I run through this building until I find a closet where there's a rack of metal pipes, and I hit the monster with it. It dies or disappears or something. I also hit someone else over the head as well. Can't remember who or why *shrugs*.
      Basic summoning: I find some people I know from a summer program and try to summon my friend and a girl appears that sort of looks like her but not really. So this probably doesn't count?
      After a while of this, I realize that I'm going to have to write everything down, and while I'm floating in the sky, I take out a piece of paper (from who knows where) to try to write down what tasks I did so I would remember. It doesn't really work.
      (Wait, does that count as summoning paper from the pocket? I wasn't thinking about summoning it, though... I just did it.)
      Had oral sex a few times, the horny teenager that I am It was really nice, considering I've never done that in real life.
      Oh, and I was wondering what it'd like to be a guy down there and managed to transform that part of my body... Hehe. It looked totally off though. Unfortunately.
      (Generally I would "wake up" after the whole sex thing but it would fade into an FA instead.)
      At random parts of the dream while I was walking/flying around, I heard random pop music that may or may not exist in real life. I went towards the music once or twice and found myself near buildings? Not sure.
      Don't think I managed to teleport. Or successfully summon something, for that matter.
      A few FAs or so. Did the nose plug RC, found that I could breathe, started to get a little worried because I wanted to wake up for real and write my dream down. Some of the FAs I was in bed with limited mobility, etc.
      Electronic device: At one point I used (or tried to use) a computer which had a really really pixelated screen. Was during one of the FAs but after I figured I was still dreaming.
      I think I saw a pikachu plushie at one point with a knife in its head. And a regular pikachu as well.

      Vividity: 8 - flying up and looking down felt real
      Length: really really long (at least 30 min)
      Lucidity: Varied (might have lost it a bit at some points)
      Stability: Pretty good. Had a close call when I started thinking about my body in bed and whether it would move... managed to focus back on the dream though.
    2. 4/2/2014

      by , 04-03-2014 at 04:10 AM (A Strange and Nonsensical Adventure)
      Apr 2 2014 - 2308 to 0630
      10 min meditation to 2320. Then MILD. "I realize I am dreaming in many dreams tonight." (Actually, fell asleep).

      0249 - Have to release balloons, fairly heavy, out a window. The balloons had been released in tens, etc, made of recycled(?) material and generally creeping me out. The floor of the platform is yielding and unstable, and I pitch towards the window-wall. I grab that side of the platform wall but that too is not stable. My friend Noah tries to adjust the platform for me so it isn't as tilted, even going so far as climbing on the wall ledge and adjusting things from the outside. The handle breaks off in the middle of his attempt, though, and we are left with no platform floor at all. I try to toss out the balloon anyway. It is feeble but somehow makes it out with the help of the god of wind(?). The god comes over later and converses with us. I describe my siblings/not-siblings (total four, two gold and two not, two girls and boys(?)). He realizes that I was the one who tried to throw the balloon and scoffs at my terrible attempt.

      Before: The street outside. I'm flying around at night, and giant/regular sized men grab at me. I'm looking for Kings Highway but I seem to have misplaced the street. Every time I head towards something that seems to be the st, it turns out to be a small side street that is just as shady and dangerous.

      Fragments: I have the policemen call for another ambulance, because the guy on the ground in front of me may or may not be hurt. He says that he had been called Peter(?) and was with a few other people. After the fact, I worry about whether I have to pay for the ambulance ride.

      0545-Community (or was it HIMYM?) cookies are good but Noah keeps tricking me into thinking that they might have bugs in them :(

      by , 11-03-2013 at 05:54 PM (A Strange and Nonsensical Adventure)
      Recall was a bit iffy today. I think it was because I was too lazy to write down my dreams as soon as I woke up...

      0100 - Something about fish?
      0240 - There's a forum type website where they implemented a feature about sleep or dreaming. Some of the members commented on it and tested it and they added some of their suggestions to the features as well.

      After waking up the second time, I tried to WILD but couldn't relax enough. Then I tried to just go to sleep, but I couldn't. :/ I stayed like this until I finally managed to WILD for a few minutes. It felt like my body was either floating up or sinking down.

      0443 - As always, started in my bedroom. The bed was bigger than usual, and the room seemed emptier. My brother E was there, saying something or smirking (or both). I was lucid from the start, so I told my brother to get out of my room. I then turned to my balcony doors. I could see that the side railings were there, but not the balcony itself. That convinced me that I was dreaming (you can never be too sure). I'm unsure how I stabilized, but it was probably by saying "stability now" and "clarity now" like last time. This dream was definitely more vivid and real than the last two.

      I leapt out of the balcony opening and tried to fly. It was wobbly and hard to control at first, but I managed. I flew for a while and the ground underneath me turned into a green landscape with trees and lakes and grass. I flew over a big lake and over/through some trees, and I saw them vividly. I then landed and tried to create fire, but nothing happened (I tried imagining the crackling of the fire and it winding around my arm, but nothing worked). I also talked to a random guy who was sitting on the grass. At some point during the dream I felt like I needed to go to the bathroom but since I was actually in bed, I didn't risk it. I eventually lost control and the dream turned into something parodying the opening of "the Suite Life of Zack and Cody" where I was the character the camera was following. As I approached another DC, however, I suddenly became aware of my body back in bed, and I woke up.

      Tried WILD from 0633; eventually just slept from 9 to 11 (yikes!)

    4. Nov 2 2013 - Second Lucid Dream

      by , 11-02-2013 at 03:21 PM (A Strange and Nonsensical Adventure)
      (Part 2/2)

      0833 - I find myself in my bedroom and I might be lucid from the start, but I do the nose plug RC anyway and it works. I go try to stabilize the dream by rubbing my hands and looking around and saying "Stability now." After it seems like it's more stable, I say something related to glasses, "Clarity now" or "Clear vision" and the dream becomes less blurry. I head toward the glass doors of the balcony and think "step through glass" but I can't, so I back up and try again. The balcony vanishes at some point, and I eventually get through the glass. The outside of the house, which either is one of those white and gold stone mansions or a brick red one (or just a very big house) is clear, but the surroundings are very weird looking. Some part of the house or the surroundings look like they're wobbly sketches and/or drawings, and the sky is gray/blue and featureless. I fly around and try to change the surroundings. As I swoop down towards some structures on the ground, I think of trying the November TOTM but I end up circling back to the room where I started.

      Then the dream yanks me in another direction, and I can't control it. Eventually it turns into a dream where I was (or was watching) a guy in an RPG like game. There was a minimap on the screen (wherever that screen was; it popped up randomly as I wandered around) depicting where I was. The guy did something in the room, and then went to this graveyard place where he stood in front of a grave and talked. The screen was narrating his actions at the point, like "A went to the graveyard. He was blah blah blah..." (That wasn't what it said, but I don't remember what it did say) On the arch over the entrance to the graveyard, there were emails and links, etc that I briefly wondered about and thought about googling (though I can't because I don't remember them). I also copied the words in the narration, thinking that I could put them in my dream journal, but then I realized that the laptop wouldn't have the data when I woke up. The guy left the graveyard after a while, and the scene changed.

      (I think I lost lucidity here, but it was hard to tell since all I was doing was observing) The guy woke up surrounded by people who knew that he was having a dream. I got the sense that they were from a forum. He talked about it and answered questions from the people, one of whom had a recorder with them. When the guy found out that, he was thankful and replied that he never remembered what he said on the spur of the moment. The dream he had was apparently about his pony/dog and how it was hurt. He remembered someone doing horrible things to ponies or dogs (e.g. beating them up) a long time ago. One of the people asked him if his grandma was the culprit in the dream, and the guy said that she couldn't be, because there were two old cars in the driveway (he mentioned their brand names), one of which was his/his grandma's while the other must have been the culprit's. Sometime after all of this I woke up.

      Dream fragment: Earlier, I had a dream involving a forum with a colorful website. The forum may or may not have had anything to do with lucid dreaming.
    5. Nov 2 2013 - Trains, the Ghost Network, and Crappy Friends

      by , 11-02-2013 at 11:06 AM (A Strange and Nonsensical Adventure)
      (Part 1/2)

      0500 - Some other friends and I are riding trains through three countries. The last country is Italy, and one of the others may have been France. It was probably a weekend, because as we were traveling, T mentioned how I wasn't going to be able to finish my homework. I thought of Mr H and how I didn't have him anymore for history. The thought of homework filled me with that "ugh" feeling, though, so I stopped thinking about it.

      In the second country or so, I was on the platform with several other friends. We were trying to get on the train, but we were on different platforms. I leaped from one to the middle platform and thought how much easier it was now that I was older and bigger/taller. But then I tried to leap to the last platform and fell/got hit by a train. It seemed like I "respawned" in the same area, at pretty much the same time. We eventually succeeded in hopping around and getting on the train.

      After the second station/country, before me and T got to Italy, a taxi came and most of the group left in it, leaving me and T behind because we couldn't fit. I motioned with the thumb-and-pinky finger gesture (the one that means "call me") that they should give me a phone number so we could stay in contact, but they didn't understand me and just left. Me and T ended up taking another train to Italy, because we didn't know where they were going.

      The trains are occasionally filled with homeless and smelly people lying down on the seats covered with blueish blankets. In one of the trains in Italy - a sleek and gray thing, sort of similar to NYC's trains - there were several cars just filled with the homeless. We wandered around two of these cars before leaving (I apparently was expecting one of the homeless people to tell me if the seats across from him were dirty. Nearby was a guy dressed in a suit) and finding out that the train was part of the 'ghost network' (as labeled on a map nearby on the platform), which meant the trains were made of souls/ghosts coalescing into a semi solid material (how I knew that, I have no idea).

      The alternative, which was for normal humans, was near the front of the platform, and looked like it was underneath a guillotine/chopper like object, which were horizontal supports on the ceiling. The train itself was not a train, but several metal platforms chained together into a line, with little to no handholds/barriers. We didn't want to get on, because it seemed highly suspicious and would probably end up killing the passengers, but we had to move for some reason. I led the way, jumping past the train and onto the beams near the top of the entrance, past which were stone stairs leading down to a wide space (a station-like area?). We jumped to the rafters or the stone/metal supports that made up the top of the hall - for a moment it felt like I was going to fall or crash into the supports painfully - jumping and running and jumping. I was continually casting powerups, etc. One point, T nearly slipped and fell, but I grabbed her by the leg and hauled her back up.

      We took off our shoes and continued running along just in socks. On the wall there were screens showing facebook-like posts and comments, one of which involved doing badly on tests and LH. Next to my replies, it showed what I really typed then erased and sent. That part involved some text like "CLACK CLACK CLACK CLACK S H E", the clacks standing for backspace, with your original message without edits underneath. It also said "you're seeing this because you typed this."

      Near this part, T and I backed up against a wall/slanted support so that T was bracing against the support and I was somehow pushing off of her. (I think my position looked like the one you use in swimming when you're pushing off the wall.) I had wings, so after I pushed off, I swooped around with my wings some more, until they timed out and I started dropping. I'm not sure what I did when that started happening, but I woke up afterwards.

      Oct 31 2013 - 2310 to 0500
      0500 - In drafting or some other classroom, Ms. A (who normally teaches Spanish in a totally different classroom) asks "who has a random generator" or something regarding our projects. She had written down our names in random order in a list. I sat at a desk that wasn't my usual seat because I wanted to finish up a part of my project. I assumed that she asked because she was going to pick a random person to present first.

    7. Sat. 10/12/13 - RPGs and Dead People

      by , 10-12-2013 at 04:51 PM (A Strange and Nonsensical Adventure)
      Gray parts are not part of the dream.

      Went to bed at 11:02, woke up at 6, wrote down a dream & tried WBTB. Then woke up at 10 or so? In any case, I got out of bed around 11 after writing down a bunch of stuff. Note: writing on paper works really well if I want to write full sentences.

      First dream (recorded ~6 AM):

      A (a friend from school's robotics team) is in this room with the rest of the "working class" people; he has a gaming system set up on his bed. The gaming setup was so that he could stick his gaming equipment under the bed once he was done, and someone else in the room made a remark about that. He was like "How do you like the setup?" and said I could stay over and play games or whatnot. I was like "Are you seriously asking me that? I'm just filling in for D (also friend from robotics team), I'm not actually him. My parents would never allow that ('cause I'm a girl)." And he was like "Oh, right."

      I was in the room in the first place because I was apparently investigating something. I stuck my head around the corner of the doorway? to the room where the workers were. On the right, a few guys were talking on a few couches. They looked like - or I got the impression of - richer people/businessmen. On the left were the "working class" people (another impression). They were milling around the room, which was messy and filled with boxes & possibly included a kitchen. Further in the room was A and his bed, which was a low mattress w/ white spread and no pillows or blankets.

      Second dream (recorded ~10 AM):

      Map: towns with names like an rpg, one spot was something like "The Beast Awakens", or just Awakens (It's probably a different verb that I don't remember). A group of adventurers were passing through. A really bright, pulsing yellow light appeared on the screen (apparently I was playing my DS) when they got near a tiny yellow dot (which also appeared on the minimap as a big glowing light). Walking over the dot w/ the main character/ party leader? triggered a cutscene in which they met/talked with a female ghost/spirit, probably well known/revered/somehow important to the story.
      The DS screen was cracked on the left side of the screen, and that part was darker than the rest of the screen. (Which did happen to my real DS, only it was never cracked and was eventually fixed). I had to move some of the menu (UI?) items out of the way so I could see the character on my screen better. At one point I had to turn the DS upside down because the character was going the other way and the whole thing flipped.

      The plot(?) of the game was something like the party was accused of killing someone just because they were near the scene. The party also came upon a girl (possibly the spirit), dead and buried in the ground so deep only her head stuck out. An arrow stuck out at an angle in the dirt, and I assumed that it struck her chest and that was how she died. The person who killed her was actually one of the villagers. There was a scene where someone - a party member? = picked up her ear (she was decomposing :S ) to do something like talk to her. The dream ended with the party stealing a precious jewel from the village just because they were there and could do so (out of revenge?).

      Another fragment was one in which I was a hawk or some giant bird and I flew up along the side of a building.

      Third and final dream (recorded ~10AM):

      Finally, I either dreamed or imagined that I had woken up during the night and wrote several pages in my DJ. I did not remember waking up at all (I think I read something in DV about this). Then I actually looked at my DJ, and only one entry was there. I was disappointed, because one of the entries - the last one - involved me trying WILD and a dream where I was struggling to control a car. It was unclear (in the DJ) whether I actually had a lucid dream or not. I got excited over that, but I had never actually written that in my DJ :/

      Mom had this app that let her know when someone connected to the wifi
      I had turned my light on just for a moment but she/dad noticed
      She was like 'wanderingoak's using the internet that early' etc

      Imitation of an old man teaching
      Lego game with magnetic walls
      Superhero vs superhero/villain, one on one
      Half-human, half robot
      man with wife and children was normal from the waist up but his ribs/organs/? were exposed from the waist down
      He wore a blue dress into the water, was supposed to count to three and go back up, but didn't, and drowned
      (Wife - black haired - was trying to kiss him on the shoulder underwater but then that happened)
      Children had something to do with a white towel, a cheese grinder, etc
