    The Fourth Factor

    The Frozen Maelstrom

    This was a dream that was only a hairís breadth from being lucid Ė one of the dreams where I canít be entirely sure that the only reason I didnít realize it was a dream was that I was taking it for granted that it was one the whole time.

    I start out standing on a grassy hill outside a very large house at night. A man is nearby Ė another dreamer. Together, we fly up and then over towards the house. I have to help him part of the way because he canít get high enough, but we make it onto the roof and go inside.

    I canít remember much of the journey, which seemed somewhat reminiscent of a video game, and after a while, we reach a room with a bunch of other people. They're all dreamers, too. Theyíre chatting, messing around, having fun, but I have something more serious on my mind. First, though, I ask a woman to heal me, since I was injured by a monster on the way. (It isn't actually painful, still in line with video game logic.) I joke that I never got the hang of healing magic myself, but donít mention I have a reason for not wanting to use too much of my energy right now. I go past them, up through a door in the ceiling.

    Once again, I'm standing on the roof. Itís night out here too, but otherwise, it looks like a completely different place than the one I entered from. Almost close enough to touch is a tornado. Itís completely still though: it looks like it was sculpted out of some steely metal, frozen in place. I did this at some point in the past, freezing it in time, but it wonít be long now until it starts to unfreeze. I gauge its strength and determine that I wonít have trouble taking care of it before it unfreezes. But thereís another problem: the effect is already wearing off with some of the monsters around here, and I probably canít take care of everything at once. I may have to get some of the others down below up here to fight them Ė but I donít like that idea. Theyíd probably be happy to, but theyíre relatively inexperienced, and I donít want to get them into a potentially dangerous situation.

    I start by taking out some of the smaller enemies with lightening Ė things like little wild pigs running around. Then I see that another monster is watching me Ė an enormous cyclops goat monster. I have the impression that heís sad, like heís taking it personally that heís been unfrozen all this time and I havenít even noticed.

    This is maybe weird enough to wake me up.
