    The Royal Australian Navy

    This is the second dream from a pair of lucids that I had last night.

    Color legend: Non-dream Dream Lucid

    Lucid #133: The Royal Australian Navy

    I'm outside helping my friend "The Schwartz" throw a bunch of random junk into a dumpster by an apartment complex. We heave a big box of rusted old crap into the dumpster "Are you sure they'll take all of this stuff?" I ask.

    "Sure," he says. "This dumpster's always moving around to different places in the city. That must mean they come to take the garbage out of it." I nod, accepting this. But when I look into the dumpster, I see a shipping pallet that I'm planning to bust into pieces next week (in waking life.) I can't understand how it would have gotten mixed in with The Schwartz's stuff. I nose pinch reality check and
    become lucid.

    "This is a dream," I tell him. The Schwartz frowns thoughtfully and nods his head. For some reason, I decide to give him a password as if this were some kind of shared dreaming experiment. "I'm going to give you a password."

    "A password?"

    "Yeah." I consider explaining but decide not to. I no longer even know why I'm doing this. "The password is butterfly." He nods again, not particularly interested.

    Okay, time to get out there and do something with this. I look up at the sky and see a huge, awkward bird flying by that looks like a pelican. I try to fly but for some reason I don't budge.

    I notice that the pelican flew right by a cluster of very weird objects floating in the sky -- the cab of an 18-wheeler, a barrel, and other random objects like that. I focus on the objects, expecting myself to rise, and this time it's no problem. In a few seconds, I'm about a hundred feet in the air.

    As I look out over the landscape, I expect for there to be an ocean nearby. It works better than expected -- there's a huge, sparkling sea laid out in front of me! It's packed with military vessels, probably about two dozen destroyers.

    Each of the destroyers has an emblem of the American flag on its hull. I think that this flag should be Australian for Australia's Task of the Year. The flag changes as soon as I think this, switching to what I believe at the time is the Australian flag. (But is actually the UK flag, oops. )

    I'm amused that the flags changed to be "just so", and I'm laughing as I fly past the ships to the open sea. I want to start the Great Barrier Reef task, so I plunge straight into the water at high speed. For some reason, though, my vision goes black when I hit the water. I can still feel myself swimming, though, so I keep paddling "underwater" in a pseudo-breast stroke. I probe at my body while continuing to swim, but eventually the feeling of water subsides. After a while,
    the dream ends entirely.

      Congrats on the lucid/TOTY attempt down under.

      No, you don't want to get the flag mixed up with the poms!

      Thanks, Highlander! And yeah, I'll try to get my subconscious more on the ball in the future. I was really proud of myself at the time (and sort of surprised that the subC "fixed" this on its own), but once I woke up I realized that I'd goofed it a little bit.

      Good job changing the flag, even if later it turned out to be that of UK. Who knows what drills the military are up to down there?

      No, to be fair maybe your subconscious simply macro'd into the top LH corner part of the Aussie flag? I.e: The Union Jack itself!

      Yeah, you're exactly right. I think that's what my subC did, too. Since my subC at least gave me part of the Aussie flag, I don't count it as a total failure.
