    Rocket-Powered Flight

    Color legend: Non-dream Dream Lucid

    Lucid #2??: Rocket-Powered Flight

    I’m standing at the corner where two long, endless hallways meet in an elbow bend. I’m trying to demonstrate to an audience how to rearchitect it, so I “select” part of the hallway as if this were all taking place inside of a 3D computer graphics program like Blender or 3DS Max. It lights up bright green. I want to shorten it, so I “select all” and the entire length of one hallway now glows bright green as far as I can see.

    I take a moment to appreciate this power, and as I consider what I’m doing,
    I realize that I’m dreaming! The dream starts to fade on me, but I’m determined not to lose it. I vigorously rub my hands together and start belting out a song: “I’m not going to lose this dreeeeeam!” I sing a few more lines about lucidity, and in one line declare (with no real supporting evidence) that Dreamer is also here.

    Suddenly I emerge outside in a brightly-colored world that has the look and color scheme of a classic video game from the Nintendo 8-bit era. I’m on a large, green plane that I think is supposed to be an abstract representation of grass. Nearby there’s a small pond filled with realistic-looking water, and a fair number of brightly-colored but mostly realistic DCs wander nearby.

    There’s an old-fashioned looking stereo nearby that seems to be producing the game world’s music, which is a pleasant, catchy chiptune soundtrack. On the side of the stereo in black letters, I see “????? Sound System”. (Can’t remember the name!) I think about how I’ll definitely want to remember this name when I wake up.

    I feel pressure in my stomach and absentmindedly push out a big fart. Rather than a brief event, though, the gas continues in a loud, embarrassing, seemingly unstoppable stream. I figure that since this is a dream, it may just go on forever (which it seems to be doing.) I get a sour look from one DC, a man with a dark mustache, who glares at me and walks away.

    I suddenly recall that I received a lucid dare to engage in fart-powered flight (seriously!), so I decide that now is pretty much the perfect time to try. I think of myself being propelled upward and I blast easily up into the air! It’s some of the most effortless flying I’ve ever done. I wonder whether I should just fly like this all the time.

    I soar happily back and forth through the sky, my “rocket propulsion” continuing all the while. Suddenly, Dreamer streaks quickly past me, flying in the same gas-powered manner that I am! I see and hear her “hee-hee-hee!”ing as she shoots by and I start laughing too, enjoying the hilarity and immaturity of this dream.

    I fly up to a large tree, easily a couple of hundred feet tall. I shoot quickly to the top and land on one of the branches, seeing a sloping wooden hallway that leads into the interior of the tree. I walk into it, curious about what this tree is and where it leads. I hear a snatch of conversation, PercyLucid saying something about wanting to trade lucid dares with me and some other people “for a few hours” so he can do some of ours. Very shortly after this,
    the dream ends.

      Very funny dream. I think whatever works for dream flight you should stick to it. Luckily you weren't too concerned with the possible waking world implications of this sort of propulsion.

      Congrats on the LD, too. It's been a while since I've read an entry. What a way to make a come back.

      Ha ha, thanks man! In the moment I did seriously consider whether this should be new flying technique. It would certainly set a highly unique tone for my Dream Journal!

      Yeah, I've been super behind on my dream journaling! I've got a significant lucid dreaming backlog that I need to get in here! For so long this DJ has served as a complete record of all my major lucid dreams, but I let myself get too busy and fell behind. I think it'd feel good to catch back up, and I fully intend to!

      The 3D graphics scene sounds really cool, was that another work-inspired theme?

      Thanks for including me in your song!!
      Did the lyrics happen to include, "Long time ago, me and my buddy Dreamer here..."?

      The contrast between the abstract grass plane and the realistic water sounds really interesting. Walking around in a video game world is just so cool!
      And a chiptune soundtrack, too? How awesome! Too bad you couldn't remember the name of the sound system, that kind of thing happens to me all the time.

      I love that the original fart was a completely absent-minded part of your dream.
      The events that followed were hilarious, from the unexpectedly long duration of the fart, to the disapproving DC, to your brilliant idea to embrace it for your lucid dare!

      Hey man, don't fight it! Sounds like you picked up an amazing new technique!

      I love my sudden giggly appearance, I'm glad I got to join you on this rumbling rocket powered adventure!

      The scene with the tree and PercyLucid at the end sounds interesting too, I wonder where that would have led... Maybe you'll find out next time! =)

      I'll leave you with this video from a scene in the Neverhood, which I was reminded of by this dream:

      I'll bet that it is! More of me being an artist wannabe, I think, from watching them create beautiful stuff with all of their fancy artist tools! =P It always looks like so much fun!

      LOL no!! But now that you mention it, that could be a brilliant LD setup! =D

      It really was! I love these hybrid video game types of world, and seeing the way the mind blends those experiences together with elements of experience from the real world and all kinds of other cool stuff. You get your own personal little mix of stuff your brain has tucked away in storage, and it's so much fun to explore. =)

      I know!! I think that may have been my first absent-minded dream fart! It just felt so mundane and realistic that I just kind of ... delivered it without thinking too much! When it went on and on like that, I felt destiny calling me, ha ha...

      Hilarious!! Klaymen was working out of both ends, too. If he'd bent and positioned his body just right, I'm sure he could have used that for some ultra-precise flight.
