    The Fourth Factor

    In and Out and In

    The earliest parts of the dream I can still remember involve going around a house at night so that I can listen to different pieces of music being played on various radios and other equipment. All the rooms are dark, and I think Iím trying to avoid being seen by somebody. Thereís a deliberate quality to what Iím doing, like itís some task Iíve got to complete. Then, walking through a large room, possibly some kind of storage space, I remember that Iím dreaming, and so I can just do what I want.

    I walk further. Up ahead are two large windows set at an angle. I can see scenes playing out on the other side Ė it alternates between a birdís-eye view of a large herd of dinosaurs of various kinds that looks a little unrealistic and something else I can no longer remember. (This was circa 4-5 am, not long after Iíd finally managed to fall asleep, which would explain the relatively fluid, early-dream quality to some of the imagery.) I decide I want to get a closer look at the dinosaurs, so I jump through the glass when theyíre visible.

    I start somewhere above them and to one side, but flying seems unusually difficult. I just feel too exhausted for it and float down towards the ground. But once I land, thereís suddenly someone there Ė I think at first that heís my father, but itís immediately obvious that he isnít Ė the thought was probably a lingering remnant of the nonlucid dream that preceded this one. I ask him who he is. He seems a little sad at the question and, in fact, never actually answers it Ė he only says something that implies my not knowing already indicates some unfortunate state of affairs.

    We fly together Ė it is much easier now, with him. He wants to head back into the building I originally came out of, which is quite tall, almost like an office building. I Ďrecognizeí various rooms I see through the glass. Among our surroundings out here, though, I can now see a place that strikes me as familiar among the array of them surrounding us in a rather physics-defying way. Itís hard to describe my impression of it Ė itís like Iím looking into a realm that is the night sky, filled with colorful ballooning shapes, a little like kites, which I know to be sentient beings. I have good memories of that place. It isnít just familiar: it feels as if, in some way, I belong there. Iím reluctant to go back inside when it is once again right here in front of me. But I follow my companion back through the glass, somewhat higher up than the level I exited from. We walk through a close, dark space which I know to be a puppet theater and into the room beyond, at which point I awaken.
