    ccxciv. Weird bicycle and family conversations

    Woken up by postman. Some in-line notes.

    Fragment:


    (going from end to start, kind of) I am with mom, she's taking me on a ride, on some kind of bicycle but it's really long, like ten yards long or something. She's asking me what I think of an alien race on a film that (in the dream) I had apparently watched. I am not too interested in the topic and feel that she is being oddly too insistent about it. (wake up at about this point)

    The whole time, I don't have a good hold of the bike thing and am concerned I might fall off but I persist in trying to stay on. (realistically I could have walked just as fast or faster) The rear end I'm at comes off from the seat area in the front, it looks a bit like one of those streamline cars' side skirts, sort of half-sectioned or something, difficult to explain. I'm holding on to it in a hunched and semi-crouched position. I have my regular clothes on as far as I can tell, wearing my normal boots. My boots make it feel very difficult to keep my feet inside the gap in the panelling.

    I have passing thoughts about how mom is being able to pedal this thing with me on it too and where I'm at a leverage point that should make climbing this bit quite difficult. We're climbing up on the small hill that leads to the newer roundabout, which used to be the P exit. We're on the cobbled pavement.

    A bit earlier, me, T and mom are walking in A, at the roundabout before the other we eventually ride up to. It's morning, sort of sunny but not. The surroundings seem different to how they should be in waking life but I'm not certain in what way. We get to a car and T unlocks it. He gets in and starts the car, it's some old car, maybe like a Mini or an older VW or something. We say something and then me and mom walk across to a pavement on the right, where those small houses should be.

    Soon I become aware of the car's engine being turned back off again, though I don't look. I think something to myself about it, but can't recall what. At this point I'm talking to mom about teachers and smoking. (probably intrusions from recent thoughts on both as concepts) She says you can't really get away from it (smoking) completely in that environment. We talk about teachers' pay and how it varies a lot and isn't quite adequate. Then when we are across and have walked along for a bit, that's where the weird bike thing is and when we get on it.

    Scraps:

    Some earlier dream sequence but recall slipped too much. Something like a game with T. We have guns and are expecting a massive encounter against NPCs or something inside a large building, but then nothing happens. There are flood lights and there's a cold ambience, despite the lights seeming warm in terms of glare. Some teens appeared and I think we hid or something, waiting to hear what they might say.



    Notes:

    - In bed, and before bed, I thought about lucid dreaming for a while and thought about wanting to do something with art or drawing while lucid.
    -- Also had thoughts based on the Dreamgates book reading, about how I have never felt completely comfortable with any name (even ones I've made for myself) and so I wondered what kind of names dream characters might give me.

    - Last night I started feeling really dizzy and just "slow" after midnight, not sure why. Wasn't able to do anything other than lie down and read a small bit.

    - Mom's appearance in this dream is no doubt related to her recent episode. On some level, any family appearance really ought to be enough for me to question reality, but it never is. She was half normal, half not, as hinted by the feeling I got off odd insistence, a behaviour I've only seen a bit of but am familiar with.

      Weird. I had bicycles appear in my dream too (but not related to the story). Sometimes I think certain symbols have a habit of appearing in multiple peoples' dreams at once, like a thought wave. Who knows.

      I don't particularly believe that myself though on the other hand I can't really say I've fully dismissed the idea either. That aside, even outside of the idea of synchronicity coincidences of incredibly small chance do still happen, however unlikely.

      DD, is the bike like that of a tandem bike ?

      WHAT. Are you saying that we both dreamed of bicycles and it was JUST A COINCIDENCE, and not some thought-form energy wave travelling through the population of dreaming minds to bring about its message of peace and harmony and bicycles?

      Pfft.

      Not really at all. It was like a mix of the side panelling of a car like below having been elongated/stretched massively and then welded to the support of a normal bicycle's seat.

      Well, I think I was partly trying to say that a coincidence does not have to exclude that possibility.

      Though honestly, yesterday in general was not my best day for good wording of any sort and I'm not convinced today is much better.

      In any case, why not a message of peace and harmony and lovely sandwiches... I never dream of nice food and I love food... Where are the food thought energy waves?!



      Edit:
      Sorry about the super-size image. Not sure how to control scaling with the BB code here... :s Tried putting in a spoiler instead.

      Ah, good point, I suppose I didn't describe that. It was welded on upright, and the "outer side" of the panelling faced left, so I was basically balancing myself crouched on it, with my feet in it from the right side. It's the case where drawing a diagram would probably be more self-explanatory and accurate than a long description.

      are you able to do a drawing of it?
