    Spell's Comp Night 1: Emotional Detatchment

    by , 07-30-2016 at 02:27 PM (524 Views)
    Frag: Something to do with shopping at Kroger with my mom. There was a stegosaurus in the parking lot eating people's groceries and cars and a thunderstorm was coming.

    Frag: I thought of dream music. Neptune the Mystic from Holst’s planets suite was all I got. I feel like I kept hearing it through dreams.

    Frag: I was watching One Punch Man season two. In it, he encountered this character from another dimension called "One Kick Woman" who was more powerful than Saitama. When asked what her power came from she said that she did TWO hundred push ups, TWO hundred sit ups, TWO hundred squats and a 20km run each day. She had a green and black costume.


    Man, I should draw that.

    Dream, since two frags from it: Something to do with being stranded a tropical island. I was with a few other people and we were all naked. I think we were on a reality TV show. Someone said something about making coconut cups for our genitals along with coconut bras for the females, but I didn't want to do it because I thought it would look ridiculous. I said that everyone was naked under their clothes and we should put survival essentials before modesty.

    ...

    At the end of the dream, The show's crew packed up but I wanted to stay on the island alone. The crew said that the island would be underwater soon because of global warming. I said that I didn't care.


    Spoiler for im gonna spoiler this one just in case, its weird and gross:


    I'm fairly certain I woke up laughing from that dream and went pee myself. I suppose that counts as a WBTB since I went back to bed with the intention of LDing. My chronology is all messed up, I don't remember what order these dreams came in at all. Just that this took place at around 4:00am.

    I was watching a movie about Godzilla. (Supposedly a followup to the Godzilla 2014 movie. In the movie, Godzilla was walking around the city. Pearl from Steven Universe was there trying to stop Godzilla but she was giant and glowing orange. She had some help from these little crystalline beetles that also glowed orange, I think she summoned them. When the tried to fight Godzilla he did something to turn parts of them green, then Godzilla left.

    Then I appeared in the dream and was able to turn the parts of their bodies that had been turned back to orange mostly, with still a few green spots. They all went and got onto a UFO to go back to their home planet, and said that they weren’t attacking earth and felt it would be better to just leave in peace before any more destruction happened on either side. I think Samurai Jack appeared in the movie toward the end and helped me to split up the fighting forces and broker peace. But people thought that it was a plot point that came out of nowhere.

    I remember my uncle saying. “That was a good movie, they didn’t waste time with anything and got right to the action…”

    I remember I was in a mining camp at night. The setting was otherworldy. Stripey blue rocks with black metallic bismuth-like crystals in them and a dark gray sky. The metallic crystals was what we were mining.

    We are sitting around the fire. Me and a few friends were using these things called murmur men. They were basically like zombie men that we could use as free labor to dig up minerals. They didn’t need to eat or sleep and acted like robots always taking orders. (You could just order one to walk off a cliff and it would oblige.) And when they were ‘killed’ by something they could just regenerate by having a skeleton come up from underground and reforming their flesh onto it.

    I remember I said that I liked to give the murmur men meals and sleep, even though they could be worked 24 hours a day without food or sleep it made me feel better and it made the murmur men more productive when they did work because it made them happier. My friends got mad at me for letting them do this because they said they were nothing more than tools to be used for our mining. I remember thinking that when I had the chance, I was going to try and set all of the murmur men free.

    Someone said something about building a second windmill for our camp. We already had one windmill powering our camp. I remember seeing the timber frame and metal rotor, and in intricate detail, seeing the gearbox we had assembled to turn the generator that provided our area with power. 2D from Gorillaz appeared and started singing the Gorillaz song ‘Feel good Inc’ and our windmill changed to the one from the flying windmill island. Golden sunlight started shining through the clouds onto the windmill.

    I FA’d. I was with family members. We were all sleeping together in this big log cabin themed suite. It had separate rooms for each of us. I remember looking out the door and seeing this creepy mime girl with black and white makeup looking at me from the counter. (I think ‘Mime Girl’ was what I was calling her internally.) I remember she had all white eyes that glowed.

    She posessed one of my cousins into going after us and trying to attack. Family members all started waking up at the sound of screams and they were panicking because they didn’t want to fight my cousin since he was a family member. I know he killed at least one person before I even woke up. Everyone went into the central kitchen area of the cabin where we saw he had a steak knife and different people lunged in and pulled away trying to take it from him.

    My aunt was getting extremely emotional because she didn’t know what she could do. She tried talking to him about loving his family but it didn’t work and my cousin stabbed my aunt in the arm. She backed away and then fainted into the arms of my father who started looking around for something to bandage it with. The wound didn't seem to be bleeding, it was just like a red cut mark on her arm.

    I remember being in what was supposed to be this intense family situation, I was just thinking like "I don't care, can we get this over with and go back to sleep." I think it was actually a low level of lucidity acting on me. I figured I'd just get in there and show everyone how it was done. I went in after my possessed knife-wielding cousin. I remember I moved in on him and tried to disarm the knife but he was too fast and he stabbed me in the chest. There was a moment of intensity here, but I snapped back into my apathetic layer-zero lucidity attitude as I fell to the floor. My wound shared the same characteristic to my aunts'. No blood came out, it was just like a short red line on my body.

    My reaction was something along the lines of “Oh darn… I’ve been stabbed by my cousin who was possessed by a demonic mime. For some reason I just don't care. ” I remember looking at the mime girl while things went to black and saying. “Maybe we should have been fighting HER instead of my cousin.”

    Then my youngest cousin went in. When the posessed cousin tried to stab him he caught the knife blade between his hands, ninja kicked him back without hurting him too much and threw the knife at the mime girl, banishing her.


    I was fully dead now and watching third person as a spirit. My youngest cousin said turned to me and said thanks for giving him the strength to be a little ninja. I was lucid enough to know that this was somehow in reference to me calling the kids in my taekwondo class yesterday 'Little Ninjas' when they did a good job on their kicks. (My cousin isn't in my Taekwondo class though)

    This apathy has been a focus of mine lately, during the meditations I've been doing. I put a lot of thought into these sorts of dreams, that often seems like they're designed specifically to create emotional scenes, but I'm usually very apathetic towards them. It feels like theres this very low level of lucidity that's worked its way into these dreams.

    Dream: 1*5=5
    Frag: .5*3=1.5
    WBTB: 2*1=2

      You were right in your advertisement. Those were some weird ones which made the read all so more pleasant. And it reminded me of a dream I had 5 years ago where I was also insistent on staying on a deserted island. I flew on planes with the hopes that I would crash on the island again. My life had become a wreck off the island. This was definitively inspired by Lost though. And it was somewhat prophetic since I hadn't got to that part where one of the characters was doing this. I kept wondering if someone might have spoilered it to me before...

      About the emotional detachment, I agree with you. I don't know if it's lucidity per say, but I have also been able to train myself to react in a certain way specifically to dream situations. It's odd because you're not lucid, you don't have complete waking life memory, but you act in a way that you learned to act in dreams. Interesting.

      hey there i dont know if its just me but i find it very exhausting to read in this orange color. i´ve read party completely marked so the contrast was better. and your legend says orange = lucid and blue = lucid dream. so orange is NON lucid yes?

      and with emotional detachment... sometimes its weird i dont like gore or aggression at all but in some nld i sometimes do agressive and inhumane things like tonight stabbing a girl several times with a spear. she wanted to and i really tried to kill her but she kept on talking and i just couldnt kill her.... and the whole time it was like the most normal thing in the world trying to kill someone while someone is encouraging you to do so... but interestingly most of the time blades are blunt and weapons wont work properly in my dreams... so maybe subcon. i really dont want to harm anyone even if i try

      ^w^ lol At the friend drawing part. That was pretty funny. Also, just by reading your dreams I can tell your into Steven Universe. At least that's what I think. I've been watching it too and the murmur men part reminds me of the kindergarten gems in a way.

      I guess it's what the pros would call 'Layer 0 Lucidity'. I don't know I'm dreaming consciously but some part of my subcon does. When you dream parts of your brain are active, but disconnected, and its the disconnect, the lack of exchange of information is the reason most people are normally non-lucid. So you can think that a situation won't have lasting repercussions, but be unsure of why.

      Okay well I fixed the legend thanks for noticing that.

      But I don't know what to do for the color code. I changed my color coding system once back when I had about 350 DJ entries on Dreamviews and it took me several sittings to change the color code. After that I promised myself 'never again'. I know its a little inconvenient but you can just copy-paste the text into a MS word/Pages/Textedit document.

      I hate the orange color too, but not because it burns my eyes out. (I keep my screen's brightness pretty low.) I hate it because its the color for Nonlucid. And I have hundreds of DJ entries both on and offline (not all of them quite on this scale, but long) that are walls of orange text.

      You should see my offline DJ. The day I started watching it, SU characters started cropping up. And yeah, I think thats what that mining dream might have been referencing. (Though I've just gotten to the first episode that talks about Amethyst and the kindergartens. I'm still on season 1, so if you're ahead, don't spoil it for me! )

      Haha!
      That's why you use the regular black color for non-lucids. And you can identify the non-dream commentary in parenthesis or italics or something.

      The Layer 0 Lucidity is an interesting concept I had never read about until now.
