    Lucid Dreams

    1. A dream-themed ARG

      by , 10-17-2021 at 02:12 PM
      What started out as trying to find more about a VR Undertale/Deltarune plot eventually devolved into a meta-commentary about how my dreams tend to change a lot. Within the dream, there were a few figures that appeared to be changing the dream for their own benefit, and one of the figures .


      • Dr. Cor***** appeared to want to kick off the events that lead to me discovering that they were making my dreams' environments unstable, I remember his name having 3 syllables to it in total
      • The Eggsmith A mysterious figure that was obsessed with luxurious bathroom equipment and bathing. He's probably why I tend to see extensive bathrooms and comfortable equipment in my dreams. interestingly, a miniature trans pride flat was dangling from the big sink he created. I vaguely remember seeing him in another dream, in which he was represented by chicken eggs on legs. He was also a capricious and whimsical figure.
      • *Jim hall (approximate name) The creator of a lot of arcades and recreation in my dreams, as well as probably some cinemas, He warped the environment into his domain, a funhouse, and summoned me to come see him. Eventually another dreamwarper thought I knew too much and put me into a false awakening.
      • [b]Chara/b] (ya know, the kid from undertale) Disappeared and appeared randomly, was ambivalent to the politics of the dreamwarpers, and appeared in both male and female forms.



      Overall, I'm probably going to have the plot of this dream resolve in another night.

      Oh, I also remember this playing during some segments of the dream for some reason.

    2. Fragment: "Thank you"

      I was walking past a table filled with various figures, and I saw Terry Pratchett amongst them.

      I called to him, had a brief conversation, and thanked him for his work.

    3. Notes on Dream Control

      by , 01-26-2021 at 04:47 PM
      this DJ is more to help identify dream control methods and tackle a system of dream control that works outnght, today are more abstract note

      Notes

      • REM sleep is vivid to the point where clothing can feel entirely different to what's worn outside of a dream.
      • the dream can react poorly in terms of stability if the form is altered.
      • The effects of the dream aren't flashy because one's visual imagination may not have a direct point of reference.
      • dream control in relation to magic systems isn't necessarily a shortcut, but it can help to organise dream control
      • The brain likes it's realism, it's similar to "consensus" from Mage: The Ascension, and dream control seems to be oddly easier once no one is looking.

      WAKING TASK: find a reliable system to build your dream control around, and practice visualization that isn't tactile.

      Dream Points
      • I managed to destabilise the dream until it changed most of it's topic.
      • There was a really, really nice roadside shopping mall with multiple levels.
      • I got into a toy war with a NERF gun that had multiple firing modes dependant on how you squeezed the trigger, automatic was "mid-way", semi-automatic was all the way, and the NERF gun appeared to have some kind of pneumatic firing mechanism.


      Techniques attempted:
      • Shapeshifting (attempted a female form in order to destabilise the dream enough to change it's topic).
      • Conjuration, attempted to conjure the book from hunter x hunter's greed island arc
      • Flight, wanted to traverse the mall.

    4. "Super President" and a Special McDonalds Promotion

      by , 11-18-2019 at 12:49 PM
      The first thing I remember was being in a McDonald's restaurant, they had a promotion related to Pokémon Sword and Shield, each starter Pokémon had a limited edition menu item attached to it,

      Something along the lines of...

      • Scorbunny having like tomato-flavor fries
      • Grookey having some kind of "fruit" related item
      • Sobble having... some kind of... drink???
      • Also I think there was some some burger related to the legendaries.


      After some period of time, I got involved in some superhero plot, and after breaking a new speed record for flight, I discovered I was in some kind of CGI animated movie, along the lines of a more adult version of some of DreamWorks' properties (i.e. Megamind & Monsters vs. Aliens). The whole plot was that the current president in the film (not Donald Trump) was some kind of superhero with a 50s-style secret base with a hi-tech red plastic communal shower. The most amount of characterisation I remember out of him was the fact he was a socially out of touch party animal.

      Eventually he got elected out of office and replaced with George Bush (neither junior or senior, he looked like a weird amalgamation of the two), who was a stereotypical villain, dancing to the following song as he made his moves on the old president's love interest



      Also, I only called "super president" after I woke up.

    5. "The War and the Witch"

      by , 06-30-2018 at 04:39 PM
      (man it's a long one)

      Part 1: Spider-man and Dream Control

      The first section involved me trying to help Spider-man escort some kids to a destination across the generic city that often features in my dreams. I started out using the dream control powers I'm most adept at, superhuman agility and size changing. after I was done escorting, Spider-man thanked me, and I decided to try and perform a longstanding dream goal, to see if I could switch genders.

      After unsuccessfully attempting to to conjure a potion to do so, some weird advert for a product for it just appeared in my field of vision, and for whatever reason, I found out it was in my uncle and aunt's room in the hotel they were staying at. I immediately tried and successfully gained access to their room by sneaking in. The serum was apparently a form of shampoo, and I decided to take a shower with the weirdly complicated showerhead apparatus there. The serum didn't really work, but slowly did it after I took the shower, In the process, I completely destabilised the dream, plummeting it into chaos, I false-awakened as a girl, in my regular room, wearing my ordinary PJs, after that, I decided I'd go back to sleep.

      Part 2: Shopping and Terrible Rollercoasters

      I found myself in a ]shopping centre, specifically, the model most closely tied to the "docks" area, I woke up with a few friends, one even had a simulation of a rollercoaster they built, it appeared to be a weird fusion between a industrial/futuristic-themed ghost train, and a steel sitdown coaster in the fashion of The Scorpion Express, the ride jerked you around like some amateur designed it, too many Gs with a lot of corners in the tracks. We browsed around, getting a REALLY cool Nerf gun that had burst fire and multiple secondary dart types you could shoot, it looked like a cross between a surgefire, a Spectre REV-5, and a Demolisher 2-In-1.

      The War and The Witch

      After walking home for a bit, we stumbled upon a funeral parade for victims of "the old war", a lot of things happened before the parade, I even saw Emperor Palpitine driving a flying Arriva bus with only half the wheels. I saw multiple of my dad's old milliary friends marching in the parade, hearses carrying the coffins of young children, people who had fought in the war, and multiple machines that fought in the war. I climbed into one, and was handed a section of poem to read out. I can't remember the exact text of the poem, other than at some point it was replaced by an entirely new Harry Potter book. after the vehicle got separated from the main parade, we came across a destroyed bridge that had seemingly collapsed from all the people that had crossed it. As we plummeted into the water, we found some wire that got caught on the supply vessel we were in, something shot us out of the water, and on to land. I got out and tried to walk. I walked a familiar route, past the RSCPA complex, through the industrial estate, and onto a field. The only difference now, is that I picked up someone trying to get to a section in my journey.

      I encountered a witch on the path back to the parade, who then turned into a south asian women in a hijab, I recognised her, we had a talk, and then it all just faded out from there.

      (Man it's a long one)

      My dream started with me on holiday, in this large house. One day on the holiday, I fell out with my mother after arguing with her on how to drink coffee. After some unrememberable and unimportant details about the rest of the holiday; We had to leave, and I had to wind up the ginormous grandfather clock in the center of the house. The clock took up an entire segment of the house, it took up a good chunk of the foyer the pendulum's weight was about as big as me, and I could only barely reach the chain so I could wind it.

      On the way back from the holiday destination, for some reason, I found myself in a weird version of Seoul in South Korea, in some nondescript shopping mall, after messing around in the shops for a bit, I realised I was dreaming, and decided to become the superhero, "Slime Guy",
      based upon the various Dragon Quest memorabilia that was scattered around. After trying out a bit of dream control, I started exploring the place, only to realise that some bits of it were flooded. for some reason, and the dream characters were walking around in the water nonchalantly, like the water wasn't there. I caused a bit of chaos and stole a shopping trolley, quickly dashing into one of the lifts (which where like a miniature network of wonkavators mixed with trams). I picked one of the wrong destinations, and got separated from my group.

      I ended up at one of the lift stations, unable to get back on the lift. I managed to get another lift that was pretty crowded, the lift had a tourist group, as well as a few locals. After trying to find a seat in the lift, I accidentally got sat on by one of the local girls. For some strange reason, she kept doing it, I was incredibly uncomfortable with this happening, so I attempted to get a Korean phrasebook up on
      my phone, but like in real life, it just wouldn't connect. She was on my lap for the entire duration of the ride.

      We eventually got off the train, the girl and her friends spoke some Korean which I understood as meaning "What is your name?" (For some reason, it actually did sound like the proper Korean for that phrase), I decided to fool around with them, and replied to them, "AMERICAN GUY!" in a perfect General American accent, before running off. All of a sudden, the supervillain "Iron Spinner" showed up and started attacking the bus. His whole gimmick was legitimately him being based around the concept of fidget spinners (I kid you not).

      The girl then suited up in an iron man suit and started blasting Iron Spinner, after a bit of tussling and scrapping, I saw a whole load of RED stickybombs from the game Team Fortress 2, I decided to try luring Iron Spinner in to them, I succeded, and they exploded, I also saw who layed the stickybombs, Donkey from Shrek. At this point, the wierdness factor must have overloaded my brain, beacuse I can't remember any more of the dream.
