    Compatability Problems, Can't wake up (LD #240ish)

    by , 08-12-2015 at 02:21 PM (552 Views)
    I was thinking about/visualizing a story that I have been working on lately and running through some plot elements. I was thinking about a part where the characters fly to space on a special spaceplane. I then decided that had best wake up, since I have to teach Taekwondo on Wednesdays. I brought myself out of the visualization but felt odd accelerations.

    I opened my eyes and saw that I was on the special spaceplane, and we were landing. I did a nose pinch and sure enough I was still dreaming. I sat up in my chair and looked around. I told myself I would regret this at some point, but that It was important that I wake up. All that managed to do at first was make the plane phase away and drop me on the runway.

    The runway morphed into a road and became narrower. I was now standing to one side of it, in a wheat feild. Across the road were several large industrial buildings. There was a stand selling bananas on my side of the road. I noted that what few cars there were were driving on the opposite sides of the road that I am used to.

    I went over to the guy at the banana stand because he was kind of blurry and I wanted to get a closer look. He turned out to be this huge hulk of a man with a balding head. He smiled and said:

    "Im the Supervisor, Can I get a taxi number?"

    (A cookie to anyone who can tell me what that DC referencing without having to look it up.)

    I saw the word 'Taxi' was printed on the side of one of his bananas.


    Second false awakening. This time I was in my backyard. I thought it was waking life for awhile. I looked around and all around me were digital clocks. But of course they all read weird times like 12:338 was one that I remember. This caused me to reality check. I became lucid and realized that this had happened twice now, clearly I wasn't getting out of this dream.

    I remember at this point in the dream I looked at my hands. People always talk about how your hands look so weird in dreams. Mine seem to look completely normal most of the time. I look at them. The skin tone is darker than I am used to but they look completely normal. I'm not wearing my bracelets, but I didn't make a note of that. I try to poke my finger through my hand. I'm simply met with the usual resistance and I can't do it. Just like a waking life hand.

    I guess I figured there was no point to continue to try to wake up, so I figured I would just see what the dream had to offer. I looked around the backyard. All of the plants/trees were gone. Not just the ones in my yard, but everywhere. Just the grass was left. I looked inside my house through a window and saw that all the furniture was gone.

    I tried to fly by jumping off the table on my back patio but I just floated back down to the ground. I also noticed that I could see my reflection in the window of my house. For some reason I had really long hair, like down to my knees long hair.

    "Hello?" I yelled and my voice echoed though the neighborhood. I became worried that this would be like one of my early lucid dreams where I was alone somewhere and no dream characters would show up. I was relieved to see. A group of identical people in the distance talking to one another.

    Out of the group came Marcus. Except he had a huge distracting beer belly. He walked over and I asked him something. I remember his voice very clearly when he replied but I can't remember anything having to do with what he said. Then Manei appeared as well. She was pulling a wagon and she looked to be about 10. Except she also had a mustache. (Okay, so not her funniest appearance mess-up to date.)

    She said she was excited because she was taking to see me a music show. She said something about it being a group from her tribe and their traditional performance. I didn't see any show, but I saw some people putting towels over a fence. I thought this was kind of weird until I figured out that it was a puppet music show. So the people were putting towels over the fence so you wouldn't pay attention to them, only the puppets then they had large puppets, too big for even a hand. They actually turned out to be costumes.

    Okay. So what are the towels for? So that the actors have privacy while they change. Pointless since we can see them from where we are sitting; and they're just putting the costumes on over their clothes.

    It was at this point that I took into question the reason my usual DCs looked different. In particular, I wanted to know why Manei was so small all of the sudden. I asked her and she replied, but I don't recall what she said.

    I then notice that once they put on the costume, their appearance seems to morph some. One of the actors changes into Manei, and the one sitting next to me goes away. Only this version of her is super vivid, and the correct age, except she was wearing beige/brown instead of the usual red, and had two braids. I remember the same kind of thing happened to Marcus only he didn't have a beer gut and he was wearing gray instead of blue. I remember both of these DCs really seemed to 'pop' from the dreamworld.

    Then, I felt myself getting pulled twoard the third actor. My 'soul' was forcibly pulled from my body, but I just let it happen, curious as to what would happen when I was absorbed by the costumed actor. I was then distracted when I noticed there was a fourth actor. But he/she wasn't turning into anybody.

    A computer error appeared.

    "Compatibility Error.
    Dream [1] character has incompatible drivers.
    Dream [4] character not found.

    Would you like to exit the dream or check online for a solution?"

    I lost the dream and woke up laughing.

      No idea. Just sounds like random nonsense. ^^"

      That is one of my favorite thing about dreams. It can replicate the senses we feel from waking life while we explore it.

      XDThats the second time in your dream something beer related has happened in the plot.

      > w < ) / hahaha Your dreams are officially full of errors. You should ask Marcus the genius what he can do about that and see what he says just for fun.

      I always find it interesting how different people's reality checks are. For me, counting my fingers works 100% of the time, and flicking light switches isn't reliable. I think it might be the one thing Inception got right, that everyone's RCs/totems are different. (Not that we hide them from each other!)

      Actually, I don't think a 'Beer Belly' has much to do with beer. It's just a way of saying someone has a ball gut, and it just has that name because you sometimes get it from too much beer, since beer has a lot of calories. I could be wrong, but I don't want 'Beer Belly' in my search history.

      That's actually not a bad mini-dream-goal.

      Could be. It seems everyone's experiences with lucid dreaming are different on such a fundamental level. It's like were each playing a different video game written by different coders with different controls and graphics and characters and mechanics. Though it seems as though the game I'm playing didn't get thorough bug testing...
