    I can hear voices. They are very gentle voices whispering unknown names.
    I feel like I'm floating.
    Am I in SP? Am I dreaming? Am I dreaming within the dream?
    I try to open my eyes but I can't.
    I can't feel my eyes, in fact, I can't feel my body at all.
    But I remain calm, I'm not worried at all.
    I like the whispering voices, they are so calm.

    Once of the voices gradually becomes louder:

    "Wake up sleepy head!"

    Huh? what? My eyes finally open.
    Yuya is leaning over me.

    "You weren't kidding when you told me you were a deep sleeper."
    "How late is it? It feels way too early to get up."
    "Does it matter? You do realize that you're technically asleep anyways yes?"

    Huh?
    ... oh... OH!

    I get our of bed.

    "I forgot."
    "Of course... don't forget to breathe. "

    I don't get that she's making fun of me at first, and think about whether I have to breathe or not.
    As soon as I get out of bed I realize how cold it still is.
    I realize that I'm still in the same bedroom as before, but the thought is very vague and in the back of my head.

    I start rubbing my hands instinctively.

    "Cold?"
    "No... I'm... stabilizing?"
    "Does the dream seem unstable to you?"

    I can literally feel everything.

    "No."
    "Then stop rubbing your hands and let's do something productive, alright? "
    "Yes... how about we go somewhere... a bit less cold?"
    "It's an interesting experience for sure, but I think I've had enough of it."
    "Haha, alright, let's go to the other side of the planet, I think you're gonna prefer it over there."

    She does the bubble teleport trick again. I have no idea how it works, but it is very quick.

    We end up in a new location. It feels a bit dark at first, but my eyes quickly adapt.
    In fact I very quickly acquire the surreal version I've experienced quite a few times in my dreams.
    The landscape looks amazing!



    Everything is sort of dark, yet anything that emits light is so colorful and bright.
    The contrast between things is extreme.

    "There's a small village right over there."

    We're walking towards it slowly, I'm in no hurry.
    I really enjoy just being here. Everything is so beautiful,
    the temperature is just right, and there's a nice breeze of fresh air.

    I take a closer look at Yuya as we walk along this path, discussing random things.
    My vision is so good, I can see the pores on her skin.
    She's so beautiful...

    "Are you staring?"
    "Err... it's... for science!"
    "Haha... you monster. "

    The portal reference amuses me.

    We have to cross a bridge before entering.
    There's a few funny looking animals floating in the sky above the bridge.
    They all look like they belong in the sea rather than the sky, but they're interesting to look at nevertheless.



    Everything is so colorful. I really love it when I have this surreal vision.
    I should focus on it more often.

    We finally enter the village.
    It is inhabited by humanoids.
    I've met their kind before, they're very similar to humans, except they are in some kind of symbiosis with plants.
    You can see it very clearly if you look at their hair, because it's intermixed with plants growing out of their heads.
    It looks kinda cool. Some of them also have wings.



    We sit down at a bar out in the open. It's a really nice evening.
    I suddenly realize that even though I'm always intrigued and amazed by these alien creatures,
    I never actually talk to them.
    It's time to change that.
    There's a women sitting with us at the bar, why not talk to her?

    "Hey, I'm Hyu, nice to meet you!"

    Well, that might have been a bit formal.
    She looks at me curiously.

    "Hey! What species are you?"
    "I'm human."
    "Ooh, interesting! Spirit or dreamer?"
    "I'm dreaming."

    Oh wait, that's right. I AM dreaming.
    Well, I guess I haven't really forgotten, I just haven't thought about it for some time.

    "So, what do you do?"
    "What do you mean?"
    "In waking life, what do you do?"
    "I err..."

    Yuya looks at me funny.

    "He's programming computer games."
    "Oh, what's that?"

    I'm not sure how to explain, but I can feel Yuya's thoughts,
    which make it quite clear that all 3 of us could simply share our thoughts and
    my explanations would make perfect sense.

    So I proceed to explain what computer games are, and what programming them involves.
    I'm really surprised by how well she understands everything, she is super excited to hear
    about virtual games from another world.
    Yuya becomes rather interested as well and we end up discussing what I am currently working on.

    I talk about quadtree terrain, tesselation, atmospheric scattering, all sorts of things,
    and everything makes perfect sense to them.
    Even though I find some of the topics rather difficult, because they're rather new to me,
    I am able to explain everything perfectly.
    This is a lot more difficult in waking life.
    Explaining what a quadtree is, and why it's useful for terrain is usually enough to fuck with people's minds.

    Yuya and the other girl keep asking questions about computer games.
    I try to show both of them a few games by projecting memories of playing them into their minds.
    I end up showing them a few images from Portal, and they find the game concept amazing.
    Logic puzzles seem to be very popular in the dream world.

    After some time I feel the dream drifting away.
    That's really unfortunate, I'm enjoying myself a lot.
    I can't seem to prevent it by willpower though, and I'd feel stupid spinning around.

    "Aww... I'm waking up..."

    The words don't really leave my mouth, they just echo in my mind.
    I wake up...


    It's only after a few seconds that I realize how long this dream lasted.
    My mind must be playing tricks on me, because combined with the last dream,
    this felt like it lasted for at least half a day easily.

      I'd love to get control over this surreal vision.
      Right now I get it sporadically, it would be amazing to be able to turn it on whenever I want to.
