    Non-Lucid Dreams

    1. Night of Sunday 9/24/23

      by , Today at 04:33 PM (Dreamlog)
      Went to bed around 10:45PM.

      Banjo-Kazooie Remade
      I'm seeing a remake of Banjo-Kazooie. It is running in 1440p and 120fps.
      The player is at Spiral Mountain and it looks amazing.
      There is a spokesperson demoing the game and he goes around Banjo's house to show a secret area.
      He makes a point that while there are changes to the remake, it still remains faithful to the original game.
      Through this back path, there is an alcove and I can see Gruntilda's hand reaching out from somewhere.
      This is meant to prove that the game is remaining faithful, but in waking life there is no such section of the actual game.

      Recalled from around 4:30AM.

      Investigating M
      I'm with my brother A, sister M, and Mom at my Grandma P's condo.
      It is the same one where I had the nightmare about the hairy-faceless monster, as well as the one with the crying girl upstairs.
      My brother and I suspect that my sister has done something sinister so we make a plan to investigate her room while my Mom is distracting her.
      We go up the stairs and find her room with clutter all over as expected. We find a side closet that isn't normally there.
      We find that it is set up for her daughter to sleep in. We don't find anything sinister about it.

      Recalled from around 4:30AM.

      Something about Hagrid from Harry Potter.
      Recorded at 7:00AM on waking.
    2. Night of Saturday 9/23/23

      Went to bed around 11:45PM

      Directionless at the Arcade
      I'm at a lively arcade with either my friend H or my ex H. It is a two-player game, but she is watching. I lost a lot of recall here because I waited too long to record.
      I'm playing a game where one controls a green lightening bolt that quickly moves across the screen.
      If it impacts a wall, you lose. There are many obstacles and the speed is high, so it is difficult.
      I die multiple times and end up on my last life. I realize on my second last life that I can change direction mid-move, not committing to a direction.
      I can do that repeatedly, allowing me to dodge obstacles as the screen scrolls that I couldn't before.
      I am getting much further this time and hopes are high. Very exciting.
      I finally die, and I reach for a bag of coins to continue as the countdown to do so speeds up.
      I get the impression that I know the coins are mine and it is OK to use them, but also that H doesn't know that and is surprised I am reaching for them.

      Recalled from earlier in the night.

    3. Night of Friday 9/22/23

      by , 09-23-2023 at 04:13 PM (Dreamlog)
      Went to bed around 11:30PM.

      New Life
      I'm with my family at a hospital. I recall Grandma P and sister-in-law K in particular.
      There is a glass viewing case that has the newborn baby girl in it.
      The baby is "K Junior". I bring my Grandma P over to make sure she gets to see the baby, and she tells me she already has.
      We are rushing down a hall, and at the end of the hall there is a room similar to the small band room from high school.
      There is a group assembled here. My friend H is part of it. I think the subject of the dream has changed at this point.
      H has a new girlfriend and it is an exciting mystery about who it is. There are other members of our friend group there too.

      Later I'm rushing outside to a car. It's a downpour of rain.
      I'm carrying my saxophone case. My Dad is driving the car.
      He won't pop the trunk so I can't put it away. I'm frustrated because he won't help me.
      It seems he wants me to bring the saxophone case in the car with me.

      Recalled from earlier in the night.

      Random Dancing
      I'm at a dance studio. It resembles the one my girlfriend and I went to a few year back.
      I'm with my friend H again and we are in a line leading to the front desk.
      I'm nervous because I'm bad at dancing.
      There is a screen behind the desk and it has a randomized list revealing who will be dancing with who.
      H is paired with someone else, and I don't recall who my partner is.

      Recorded around 7AM.

      I'm playing a Zelda game. It resembles Tears of the Kingdom. My girlfriend S is watching me play.
      We are in a lava-themed area. I'm currently fighting a tall monster.
      There is a new partner (similar to Navi, Tatl, KoRL, Midna, Fi etc) that has the ability to steal enemy weapons mid-strike.
      In a dramatic and exciting moment, I execute this ability just as the monster is thundering down a massive axe toward me.
      The axe gets a green glow (similar to how the ultra-hand works) and teleports to Link's hands. S thinks it is awesome. We're both excited about it.
      At that moment, the game slows down, and the background is red. The silhouette of Link holding the axe and the action lighting makes the moment all the more epic.
      I strike, the monster falls, I win.

      Recorded around 7AM.

    4. Campus & The Cathedral

      by , 09-22-2023 at 05:58 PM
      I was trying to break a kid free from a school that was imprisoning him. It was a long process of avoiding the campus police, as this was the largest campus I had ever seen, and I kept getting lost.

      I eventually got him out of there, and he climbed one of the tall fences out onto the city road.

      As I crossed the street, I turned into my dragon and spent time in the city.

      I eventually went into a beautiful, massive building. Iím not well-versed in building architecture, so Iím not sure what type of building it was exactly. A cathedral? A monestary? The floors were a glossy white, surrounded by pillars decorated with blues, reds, and golds. There were multiple levels you could climb up, each hall winding along the walls.

      I went through the front door for once! I had a respect for this building that I donít normally feel.

      I wandered up each floor all the way to the top, then back down.

      I spent this time being mindful of my perceptions and body, feeling the numb, warm, comfortable tingling sensation of sleep. Iíve been thinking of using this to recognize dreams, since itís a physical feeling thatís always present in sleep.

      I took a moment to check in with my senses and perception, thinking about how surprising it is that so many people donít expect dreams to feel real.

      Everything feels completely real and vivid, identical to waking experience (aside from that sense of the body laying comfortably numb in bed).

      I wouldnít be able to tell it was a dream just based on my eyesight, touch, or other senses.

      I exited the dream for a moment and sat in pure aware sleep. Then I re-entered the dream again, reappearing in the same spot.

      I had atajen pictures on my phone and was amazed at how my mind could create these pictures, yet I canít draw anything nearly that realistic.

      A monk walked by, wearing orange robes. I asked him if he knew what lucid dreamers were.

      He answered ďYes, Iím talking to one.Ē with a smile.

      ďOh, excellent. Do you have any recommendations for me?Ē I asked, happy that he knew me. I wasnít sure what I wanted to do, or what I should do.

      He then turned and pointed towards the stairs. ďYes. If you walk up, you can get to the top. Itís a couple of stories, but thereís a nice spiraling staircase at the top thatís worth the journey.Ē

      I nodded. ďThank you. I was just there. It was lovely.Ē I said.

      I could feel myself about to wake up. Itís morning and my body is ready to get out of bed. I stayed in the dream a bit longer.
      ďI have a few minutes at most.Ē I said.

      ďAh.Ē he replied, understanding what I meant.

      He was going to show me something else, but as I was walking with him, I woke up.

    5. Night of Thursday 9/21/23

      by , 09-22-2023 at 05:34 PM (Dreamlog)
      Went to bed around 11:00PM. Used a sleepmask for the first time.

      Wisdom Teeth
      I'm at the dentist's office. The dentist reminds me of Butch Hartman.
      He's talking about how he has lost a pen.
      I talk about how there should be more colors than red/blue.
      I have impression I am here because I'm to have my wisdom teeth finally taken out.

      Recalled from earlier in the night.

      I'm in a city, its day-time. I'm in an alley somewhere.
      Recalled from earlier in the night.

      Visiting Grandmas
      I'm standing outside a small home, it's night-time. There are some fairy-lights around.
      I'm with my family (Dad, brother, sister, and Grandma P) and we are visiting Grandma M.
      Grandma M is very short. I got to give her a hug and I need to practically kneel to do so.
      We enter the home and start to help my Grandma P unpack.
      My brother and I are to share a room on the left, with two twin size beds in it.
      My Grandma P's room is just across the hall on the right, but there is a laundry room there.
      The laundry room resembles the one Grandma M used to have, but the orientation is wrong.
      Someone is taking out a kid's costume of some animal out of the drier.

      Recalled upon awakening, around 7AM.
    6. Tented City Apocalypse

      by , 09-20-2023 at 04:26 PM
      This dream was not the most interesting. Normally I donít bother writing these down, but wanted to touch up on my recall.


      Post apocalypse, me and a group of people drove away from our home town to escape an apocalypse.

      Most of us didnít know each other because we had just narrowly escaped disaster by squeezing into this vehicle last second.

      There were three men, a newborn infant (belonged to one of the men), and a woman who was driving.

      As we drove, we spotted a store that still had its lights on (not sure how because nowhere else had power) and wasnít reduced to a pile of rubble like the buildings around it.

      So we pulled over. It was a Disney giftshop of all things.

      Turns out that despite everyone dying in the apocalypse and buildings going up in flames, Disney kept up with regular business hours.

      The employees all acted like there was nothing going on outside.

      They still took cash, even though money was pretty much useless now because of the apocalypse.

      So we went in to purchase some supplies for the baby, which felt like a surreal contrast with how the world was outside.

      Then we got back into the car and drove off, eventually reaching a city that appeared to be abandoned.

      In this city, the buildings were all eerily covered in black and white striped fumigation tents.

      We got out if the car because several of the guys wanted to stay here for the night, so we all stepped out and talked about our plans, speculating about why everything was tented.

      An disagreement ensued because the woman wanted to leave, but her decision was outnumbered because everyone else wanted to stay.

      The problem with splitting up the group was who got to take the car (the city had no cars in it, or they were under the tents).

      Eventually the disagreement turned into politics (go figure) and got heated. I ended it by going with the woman and leaving everyone else with the car (turns out she just didnít want to go alone, so she agreed to this setup).

      So we set out on foot into the wilderness. The woman walked ahead of me and suddenly transformed into a wolfdog.

      I was surprised because I didnít expect her to have this ability, which I also have (guess we had more in common than I realized). So I turned into a wolf and ran after her through the forest. This made it easier to follow her because of my heightened sense of smell.

      Thatís all I remember for this one.

    7. Comp Nights 9 to 14 - Short and Nonsensical Dreams

      by , 09-16-2023 at 08:54 PM (MeiSEKAI)
      I actually meant to publish this yesterday but couldn't finish I hate school.

      Night 9

      Dream #1 (Non-Lucid):
      An anime boy and I were steering clear of a grizzly bear. At some point my dad rolled down a hill with a cat and they landed directly in its warm embrace.

      Eventually the anime boy turned into Z, and he fell and got a scratch on his foot. Nile sniffed it and I pushed him aside, intending to put blood in the wound (literally), but Z put on his shoes before I could. Then he said something unclear, and I told him, "You should communicate better."

      He started getting emotional about some (false) time I didn't tell him about a cliff edge. My mom sided with him but I laughed in their faces. She was so distressed about my bad attitude she got up, backed me into a corner, and slapped the "camera" while screaming.
      It woke me up. Unknown time WBTB.

      Dream #2 (Non-Lucid):
      Plot1: I was reading a book in the hallway between my room and my dad's when some random guy came up the stairs. He must have opened a door because I asked him to close it, but he left without saying a word. My dad came out of his room and closed it, then brought it to my attention that S was spamming me. Something about a dolphin show and slippers.

      The book I was reading looked like a CD App [I remember the book but idk what I meant]. I had read it before and knew the whole story. The main character was on a quest to obtain some sentimental candy... and at some point a creepy old guy got involved.

      Plot2: A bunch of anthropomorphic animals were illegally climbing a building. They got caught and scattered, a young koala hiding inside a sewer drain. He felt depressed about the whole thing, and when his brother found him and sighed, he fled deeper into the sewer in shame.

      At the bottom was a splatter of blood, and in the corner of his eye he saw a creepy girl standing above him. Quickly he ran back up and told his brother. A floating, pale face came around the corner and they ran out of the sewer, grabbing a bottle of face lotion and a slipper on their way out.

      The brother suggested they speak gently to it, and while they did so they shoved its severed foot in the slipper and poured all the lotion on it. By then the face had disappeared.

      Dream #3 (Fragment, Non-Lucid):
      I fixed a graphic design.

      Night 10

      Dream #1 (Fragment, Non-Lucid):
      Dream about musicÖ I was good? Played a "comboÖ" When I woke up at 4:07 my mom was in the room and Z was leaving for his club. WBTB.

      Dream #2 (Non-Lucid):
      I was swimming in a pool by myself, repeatedly sinking to the bottom and considering drowning myself. The water looked only slightly off, and everything was vivid.

      At some point Z came in and we messed around, but he took it too far so I left. He followed me out and I said, "You might not remember this, but I came here to be alone, _not_ with you." There may have been a background track screaming "OHHHH" but I'm not sure.

      We went into the bathroom and his thermos spilled all over the floor. My body looked disturbingly different, but I didn't know how to react so I said nothing.
      6:05 WBTB.

      Night 11

      Dream #1 (Fragment, Non-Lucid):
      J&L and I were playing guitar. There was something about a "small Am chord" in "real life" vs "earlier"? 4:00 WBTB.

      Dream #2 (Fragments, Non-Lucid):
      Frag1: Person played guitar. Was considered an amateur "because of graduation," but was actually good. Played "G2" chord.

      Frag2: Took up a huge portion of the dream. J and her mom and I were going out somewhere.

      Night 12

      Dream #1 (Non-Lucid):
      Interesting setting, a museum of some sort. Felt underrepresented by (illegible) and then not. J and I passed the food court, and I really wanted milkshakes but we were already in the checkout line.

      Somehow I ended up in my school, and the person in front of me was wearing a hoodie with pictures of famous rappers carrying bunnies. Some snuggled up to them, some placed them on their heads, some held them by the scruffs of their necks with a disgusted expression. It depended on their personality.

      Later A.M. was questioning me, calling me "funky" while I skipped. I stopped and said, "That's galloping! Are you a horse, A.M.?" as a joke and she and K and I laughed. Then S and I ended up in the "woods rainbow" somehow.
      4:20 WBTB.

      Dream #2 (Fragment, Non-Lucid):
      People dancing. Someone said, "There's no way that silly little figure is Willy Wonka!"

      Night 13

      Dream #1 (Fragment, Non-Lucid):
      Guy pretending to (illegible) with Ms. B. I "acorded" her in the valleys.

      Dream #2 (Fragment, Non-Lucid):
      Flashes. "Sis Dore." Middle school. Mr. N. Something about bears as a nickname.

      Dream #3 (Lucid):
      Boy reassured people that "they were not split," in response to a girl's question. Later watching some weird BL anime about guys training to be actors/mages. At the end Ash Ketchum flew in on a broom, and Ginga from Beyblade was involved somehow.

      Random false awakening. I started writing down the earlier part of the dream, when I heard my mom say my name. I assumed it was a hypnopompic hallucination, but for some reason I felt unsettled.

      I sat up, the motion feeling unusually floaty and robotic, and looked out at the rest of my room. It seemed off somehow, and there were two dark orbs hovering in the air, small enough to mistake for a trick of the eye.
      I thought, Wait a minute, could this be a dream?, did a nose-plug RC to make sure, and it worked effortlessly!

      Maybe it was a self-fulfilling prophecy, but I sensed that I didn't have much time. I flew down from my bed, in this weird, conveyor-belt style of flying. It was hard to maneuver myself in the window's direction, and I nearly flew through the wall out of impatience, but eventually I managed to orient myself and phase through the window.

      What's next? What's next? Controlling a DC? I looked around for one, but couldn't see very well.
      Then I woke up.

      It felt short and uneventful, but at least I gained a decent amount of points for the competition

      Night 14

      Dream #1 (Fragment, Non-Lucid):
      There was a club for silent people, and another for another type of people, which were the main focus, but I can't remember what it was.

      Dream #2 (Fragments, Non-Lucid):
      Frag1: "Clueless girls" were watching a romance show. In response to one line they squealed, "Oh, that was so good!" Another girl agreed but was a bit disappointed, since she was rooting for the GL couple.

      Frag2: In a bookstore like Barnes & Noble, looking for the Owari no Seraph light novels.

    8. Getting Dam Educated

      by , 09-16-2023 at 04:33 AM (Bridger's Oneironautic Expeditions)
      I'm at a river with another person. They are explaining how they are making a makeshift dam. A center block of concrete has already been poured and water running around it has washed out any loose rock so it is now just a solid part of a much larger rock. He triggers the buildup of water by moving a log over the remaining stream and the dam is put into action. I take a small boat over to one side of the water, but he releases the stream at the dam, so I'm pulled with the current back towards it. I narrowly escape capsizing and falling into the water with the help of the builder who pulls me out. Later, I'm with a group of guys who don't have a place to stay for the night up in the mountains. A couple offers beds to us in the loft of their house. I am very grateful to them but everyone else just walks in and finds their bed.

      Dream 1: Like a normal dream in September, I was on Vecterra (Starfield Moon). There was a story being passed around about how I helped a kid go from nothing to a badass soldier god with a minigun and stuff. It was all well, before I saw Koschei as a background character. She's from the PR and I know this so I get lucid immediately. I tell her "Koschei, I've missed you so much. You have no clue how much I've missed you.." before she says "I have no clue who you are". I think that it might be cause we're not really in a PR world yet, and this is Koschei just playing out another role. I tell her "You are Koschei the Immortal. An Explorer of the Voidway, you fight off Satan's Cult with me and Nairu. Ring any bells??" before she claims that she's "retired". I grab her by the shoulders, look her in the eyes and say "You are Koschei, from the Voidway PR." as a sort-of mantra. Then the light in her eyes change and she remembers. "Welcome back Frank." she says. I say "Thank you so much... I've got a plan! Nairu's still in Earth A, right?". "Definitely. Back at my place". So I close my eyes and open them back in Koschei's lodge. Nairu is there, I can hear her but she's invisible for some reason. I give her a hug and tell her I missed her as well, and that I found where the panacea is to cure her cancer. It gets a bit weak so I try grounding, but wake up anyways.

      Dream 2: I was recommending a number of old games to everyone and it generally lead to a complete revival of them. For example I raised awareness on DASE 2 for its modding capabilities and it got on an SCP Illustrated video. I actually managed to get my dad into undertale just because of mettaton. Even though he tried the game and hated it before. It was surreal. I discovered something groundbreaking that I canít recall before waking up.

    10. Once In a Decade Skiing

      by , 09-15-2023 at 04:33 AM (Bridger's Oneironautic Expeditions)
      I'm with a friend and some others on the mountain skiing. I don't know why I'm skiing rather than snowboarding but I'm keeping up with everyone just fine anyways. We try getting some air off a side hit and it works pretty well. After navigating through a difficult part of the slope, we take a break. Someone asks me about my skis and I tell them how I haven't skied in over a decade now but it's just like riding a bike coming back to it. I remark to my friend how I should go put some sunscreen on as I can fell my face starting to burn.
    11. Gunpowder God

      by , 09-15-2023 at 04:30 AM (Bridger's Oneironautic Expeditions)
      I'm playing a role in a story I'm telling myself. The narrative involves the invention of gunpowder by a god, which is me. Some door must be opened and there are piles of explosive material right outside it. I toss some more closer to the door and then prepare a fuse. I spend a while experimenting with what seems to be the best combination of ingredients to spark correctly. I make little piles for each one on a tray then press down on it with a rod that has a hollow cone shape on the end. When pressed down all the way, the powder ignites. I find the best candidate and light the fuse, which is a trail of the gunpowder, using the same rod. The door explodes and I walk away towards the edge of a lake. I begin to fly, rising above the clouds thinking that this must be where the gods live. I see nothing but clouds though and end up getting a stomach lurching feeling looking back down at the ground. I fall fast and splash into the lake.
    12. Day 13

      by , 09-15-2023 at 03:22 AM
      Funny, thought after I ordered high end noise cancelling earplugs I wouldn't be irritated in my late sleep anymore.

      1 dream: I was basically just going through the starfield campaign again. Joined UC Vanguard but didn't like it. Remember killing some people before waking up.
    13. Night of Wednesday 9/13/23

      by , 09-14-2023 at 08:59 PM (Dreamlog)
      Based on this and the last WBTB attempt, it seems like 6hr/10m might not be the optimal WBTB configuration for me. I think I'll stick to it for experiment #4 to finish out the original plan though.

      Went to bed at 11:30PM.


      I'm at the Darkmoon Faire from World of Warcraft.
      I'm playing as a Night Elf. I'm bragging to the other players around me about something.

      Recorded at 5:30AM. Near the end of sleep cycle 3.

      Scorpion Trap
      I'm at some sort of manor, and I'm together with my ex-girlfriend H.
      I find it strange that we are together again, but not enough to make me question it further.
      We are standing in the front yard and it resembles the side-entrance from highschool (P) but with concrete steps going up.
      There is a man up a story telling us about a device.
      The device is a way to capture or deal with scorpions.
      I remember looking back at H and thinking she looked kinda hot with her short blue dress on.

      Recorded at 5:30AM. Near the end of sleep cycle 3.

      Woke up 6 hours after going to bed as planned. Felt very well rested. Almost decided to just stay awake. But I want those points. So I took the Galantamine 8mg to stay consistent with my experiment parameters and reviewed my go-forward for the lucid. After 10 minutes I went back to bed.


      False Awakening
      I wake up in my bed and do a nose-plug RC out of habit.
      I'm lucid now. I try to move my hands forward to do a hands RC, but they feel very heavy.
      I struggle against this weight, but I can't overcome it.

      Recorded at 7AM. Early in sleep cycle 5.

      I was really hoping to have "one of those" lucids this comp, kind of thing that would get me like 50-100 points, but I guess not this time.

      Dream 1: I was back at my old school, doing normal stuff when I was having an argument with a classmate over scrambled eggs or something like that. We started fighting about it and then I made fun of everyone before walking out.

      Dream 2: Todd Howard invented the same machine Michael Raduga did which was able to record dreams. Except this one was able to convert dreams to digital media and the other way around. Kinda like the Brain to Data Machine from ATNRPG. Anyways I was messing with it and it was fun. Actually talked to Raduga in this VRChat like world, but I never got lucid unfortunately.

      I'm with a coworker who is describing to a manager how he set up a mock plane in the air in a warehouse to mimic shooting down into targets below. It had all sorts of cables attached to pull it off. Later, I'm doing some assistant work at an airport where I'm waiting for a lady to write down the names of all the passengers. She calls out my name when she's done and I glance over the paper. I find it strange that there are so few names listed, only 20 or so, and that they are written in different colors. Later, I'm with a bunch of people at a little house having a party. It's after everyone's been drinking quite a bit and people start puking. I find my way outside and do the same in some bushes off to the side.
