    The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey

    Hello and welcome to my dream journal. I try to journal all my most important dreams here, especially my lucids.

    I have a dream guide named Juliana. She takes the form of a twenty something witch that that looks a lot like Vin from Mistborn.

    Juliana also became a tulpa in October of 2021. Together we plan on fighting the evil witches in my dreams who seem to also know that is a dream.

    1. Autum Competition Night 10

      by , 09-11-2023 at 11:50 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I took a nap to try and get a lucid for the competition and managed to get a DEILD chain.

      Teleportation Failures (DEILD) 09.11.2023

      I am in a home I don't recognize now but in the dream it felt familiar. It is dark inside and I leave my house to find it sunset. For some reason I know my internet friend R lives in the same neighborhood and I start walking to his house. I wake up.

      I feel myself in the void between dreams so I sit and wait until I know I am feeling my dream body. I get up and nose plug RC and it shows I am in a dream. I am in my childhood bedroom and it is very dark. I want to see Juliana so I run to the living room where theres more space. I put my hand behind me and feel her take mine. When I turn around, however, no one is there. I do this several more times before waking up.

      I DEILD chain and go back to the living room. I shout, "Jay! Where are you?" I hear her say, "Hey" but when I turn around shes not there. It's very dark which makes the dream unstable. I try again and this time vaguely see her lying on the couch. I tell her to stand up but she doesn't and I wake up.

      I nose plug again and it's a false awakening. It's still really dark. I realzie I shoud get on with my three step tasks so I summon my Robes of Anorak from behind my back and put them on. I then reach my right hand to my left wrist and try to throw out a HUD. It takes a few tries and focusing on the streams of energy. I say, "Noma Desert" and nothing happens. I wake up.

      I RC and get up. This time I have a watch on and there is a button I can press to throw up a HUD. This time the holograms are green. I say, "Noma Desert" and the HUD lights up. I snap my fingers and nothing happens.

      Next DEILD I get a HUD that has mechanical elements reinforcing the holograms. I ask why my attempts didn't work and it says I need to plug it into a usb c charger. I find such a charger plugged into the wall next to me. Sill no success.

      Another DEILD I find the hologram orange this time like the sand of the Noma desert. I say, "Noma Desert." and ask it to show me where JadeGreen and Manei are and it adjusts. When I snap my fingers I get teleported into space in an asteroid field and get smashed between two asteroids.

      One last DEILD and I ask the HUD why I got teleported to space. It doesn't answer and I wake up to see light enter my eys.
      I am awake
    2. Autumn Competition Night One

      by , 09-02-2023 at 06:23 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      Freedom Fighters (NLD) 09.02.2023

      I start the dream in a big building filled with cool inventions and nerdy paraphernalia. There is a teenage girl who lives here. She tells proprietor of the building was a freedom fighter who made this place as a sanctuary against the totalitarian government that took control about ten years ago.

      The next thing I remember, I am climbing the fence of a concentration camp. I see the buildings are all concrtet with simple rectangular shapes. I enter the camp and find a group of people, all about my age, who want to escape. We make it out and make our way back to the sanctuary building on foot.

      When I get there I start having false memories of knowing all of these people from a Skype group chat from before the totalitarian government took over. We were all rebelious types which is why all of them but me were locked up.

      After a while of bonding with the group lights shine in the windows. We look out to see helicopters coming towards us. The scene inside the building is chaos as everyone tries to escape in vans and our own helicopters. I see some of my friends get shot down by bullets that rain down from the enemy helicopters. I make it into one of our helicopters and we take off.

      After a while I see a tram below and I have the idea of jumping out of the helicopter into the tram. The pilot positions me so I can manage it. Inside the tram it is all civilians, seemingly headed to work. When we get to the train station I get chased by some police officers but I lose them. Then I find a family that is willing to let me hide in their house. I eventually see that they have webcams in their television like in 1984 and soldiers arrive to take me, however, they don't have guns, only knives. I get a knife of my own from the kitchen and fight with them. They get me in the arms a few times which hurts but I get them in the neck so I am winning until I wake up from the pain.

    3. Mechanics Realms

      by , 08-10-2023 at 05:44 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      Mechanics Realms (NLD) 08.10.2023

      I don't know if I was lucid because I would have gone with the plot either way. I was the creator of a video game that is very similar to minecraft creative mode except the voxels are 1 decimeter and there is mechanics that allows for non grid snapped creations that work with physics simulations. The map is an infinite fractal where each voxel just has a color. Players move out from the center and claim voxels that they can then color and manipulate. Most voxels are smooth but you can instead choose to have a little stud which is like a lego stud and the voxels can rotate around them. I think it was called "mechanics realms" or something like that because the physics simulations let you make advanced physical mechanisms like zeplins and such.

      When the game started out, the player base was claiming the area immediately around 0,0,0. I could see a map of the players progress sort of like r/pixel. People seemed to like the game but it wasn't catching on right away. This is where I started alternating with another plot line. Outside the game I was one of the friends of the teenage aged kids from Stranger Things. I tried to get them to play the game but they lost interest quickly. Lucas had a big basketball game coming up and I really didn't like some of the players on the other team. They were bullies. Luckily the other team sucked so Lucas won the game.

      Back in the game, I added a mechanic similar to the nether in minecraft where there is a plane you can teleport to to travel faster relative to the overworld. When I came back to the overworld I was in a complex and colorful fractal like cave!

      Back in the "real" world I tried to tell them about the game while hanging out. I think there was some dialogue but I suck at remembering dialogue. Then I woke up to my alarm.
    4. Dreaming Club

      by , 07-27-2023 at 03:38 AM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      Dreaming Club (DILD) 07.26.2023

      I fell asleep into a nap at 4:00 PM and woke up at 7:00 PM The first part of this dream is fuzzy. I was with my family on vacation and I really wanted to do something (not sure what) and wasn't happy that I wasn't able to. I must have picked up on the dream signs because the next section was lucid.

      I am on the first floor of a multi story building. I hear my friend RH's voice but I don't see him around. He says this is the dreaming club and I see there are pamphlets and books about dreams for sale. I say I want to join but I eventually wonder what's outside so I leave. It is dark out. I am in my childhood neighborhood and walk to my old college. The enterance is ropped off and someone standing nearby says this enterance is not being used by the public.

      The next thing I remember is I am learning about masonry and a Greek man tells me he will teach me how to use a stone lathe. I ask if he can show me how to make a stone icosohedron so he brings me over to a giant lathe and puts a big slab of grey stone on it. First he starts on it with a grinding bit making it into a sphere. He then changes out for a cutting bit and starts carving away at it to make faces. I see now that it is only half a sphere and when ever he moves on to cut the next face the stone jolts as if its about to fly our of the lathe.

      My sister and some of her friends are nearby they say that the ceremony is about to start and the man leaves the lathe. The next thing I remember I am in a book store combined with a coffee shop. The shop has a beautiful view into a large room like a church with stairs leading down into a section that has chairs in the middle. I walk to the pulpit and observe that the walls on either side are black glossy stone that rises high up an then between them there are bas reliefs and flowers that rise even higher. I look in the left corner and see the lathe is actually in this room still with the stone in it. A woman in a chair next to me says to sit because the sermon is about to start. I figure this is reasonable since it's about 6PM on a Wednesday but I don't feel comfortable because I haven't been in a church service in ages. I walk back to the coffee shop and find a black curtain and I am curious what is behind there. I go behind and find another roped off section leading to the college parking lot. The barista lady comes through the curtains and says we aren't supposed to go this way. Then a lady shows up behind the ropes to confirm that we need to leave. Then I wake up

      Then the craziest thing happened. I texted RH and told him about the dream and he responded that he actually is part of a dream club and asked me to join!

    5. Visiting JadeGreen and Manei

      by , 07-20-2023 at 06:31 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      Visiting JadeGreen and Manei (DILD) 07.20.2023

      There was this whole dream about Halloween and getting in trouble for some reason during a celebration but I can't really remember it all. The next section of dream I remember clearly I am in a basement with some friends that I don't know IWL making a diorama of a graveyard out of candy. We go up stairs and the friends mom is really worried about us and sort of mad because, "We are letting the demons in." and other crazy religious things. I randomly think to do a reality check and can breath through my fingers so I became lucid.

      I summon my Robes of Anorak and pull up a heads up display. This time it is bright and vivid. I tap the search bar and then say, "Woue". The map changes to show a tropical area with a river ending in a river delta. I snap my fingers and suddenly I am in a mangrove where the plants have black leaves. This time I remmebered to look up! The sky is cloudless and blue. To my right there was a binary sun. Theses stars orbit eachother in such a beautiful way. Currently they are fairly close but not overlapping. Then I look up and spot one of the moons. It was smaller than our Earth moon. Then to my left, high up in the sky, is the large ringed planet, Asuma, that Woue is a moon of.

      I start flying looking for JadeGreen and Manei's beach. It doesn't seem like I am on that island. I still have the HUD up and I look at the map. This area is mostly mangroves but there are also some markers on the map. I fly past one and see that it represents a modern looking building. I hear a familiar voice so I fly closer. On a second floor balcony I see Manei and Hade! I fly down to them and run up to Hade to give him a hug. He is shorter than me in this form. As I hug him his body flashes purple where I contact him. I stand back and poke his chest and sure enough there is some sort of magic armor made out of small triangular segmants less than a centimeter from his body. "You have made some improvments to your ward!". "Yes I have. I wanted to be prepared incase we sparred." he says. Then I go up to Manei. She is much taller than me and wearing a crop top and a necklace with sea shells, "It is good to see you in dream form." I say and give her a hug.

      They guide me into the building and there is a red skinned alien sitting on the couch eating fruit. I talk to her a bit and then wake up.

    6. Ethernet Hunt

      by , 07-20-2023 at 12:42 AM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      Ethernet Hunt (NLD) 07.19.2023

      I had this dream in a nap. I felt really guilty for taking a nap but this dream was funny to me. I am on a street corner with Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, and my nephew. Mark is explaining that there are ethernets running underneath the city and hackers like to go in there to spy on peoples data. We walk up to a manhole cover. He starts loading a large revolver that has a a flashlight on it. Elon opens the manhole cover and I look in. It's dark in there and I can't see anything. I really want to catch a hacker so I jump in. It is much more spacious and lit up now and there are sets of ethernet cables everywhere. I see a person sitting with a laptop further in and he sees me so he picks up and runs. I chase after him and then the tunnel ends and I find myself in a Subway resturaunt. I find this very strange. I see the hacker run out the door and I chase after him. He steals a bike and takes off but somehow I can run faster than he can bike. I push him over and wake up for a moment.

      I see this as a good chance to DEILD so I try to stay still. I am semi lucid and now I'm in a car with Mark and Elon driving on a freeway. I somehow know they are chasing the hacker. They are on the phone with another bilionair who is saying silacious things about my nephew and I somehow know that the person they are talking to is in a car driving behind us. I blink myself into their car and try to stop him from saying these things and I wake up.
    7. Rock Wall and Fight Pits

      by , 07-17-2023 at 05:46 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      Rock Wall (NLD) 07.17.2023

      I am currently between jobs IWL but in the dream I have a job that required a lot of communting. After work me and some friends from the job car pool to a convention in full cosplay. I think we chose a theme of Star Wars and I am Darth Maul. At the convention we get to have some fun mock lightsaber fights. It is time to get in line for some event but to get in line you have to climb a rock climbing wall without a harness. My friends ditch me and one of them even makes fun of me saying I will never make it. I feel like he reminds me of a couple of my ex friends combined into one person I no longer like them very much. When I make it near the top of the rock wall the hand holds become very parilous and I look down wondering how hurt I would be from the fall. It is very far. A few people in cosplay at the top try to help me up and when I am locking hands with them I wake up.

      Fight Pits (NLD) 07.17.2023

      When I fall back asleep the dream continues but it is changed. Now instead of cosplaying at a convention I am am playing a computer game where I am playing a kobold character. The friends from before are now a clan I was in that betrayed me. There is a big gladiator PVP minigame I am joining. It is a lot like Runescape and I know my chances of winning are really slim. I have a oak long bow with iron arrows and a bronze scimitar. My armor is leather. I tell a much higher level wizard that my friends abandoned me and he says he will look out for me durring the fight.

      It is time for the game to start and the coloseum gates open. Everyone runs in and starts fighting eachother. I use my long bow to widdle people down and somehow get the last hit on some people! Finally there is only one other player left and I am out of arrows. It is a woman with mithril armor on. She says she is impressed I made it that far and raises my hand saying "And in second place!" The crowd is very happy. Then she finishes me off. lol
    8. Jade Green Sparring Match Two

      by , 07-06-2023 at 08:13 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      Jade Green Sparring Match Two (WILD) 07.06.2023

      My partner K wakes me up when she is getting out of bed earlier than me and when I fall asleep I feel the dream set in before I lose awareness. I do a RC and confirm I am in a WILD. I get out of bed and summon my robes and put them on in one swoop of my arm. I try pulling up the heads up display with the gesture of swiping up from my left wrist but it doesn't work right away. I wake up but DEILD.

      I try again and this time I get the holographic HUD to show up. Instead of being futuristic, this time it looks like Windows 11. I tap the search bar and say "Noma". then I snap my finger and get teleported to a beach. I focus on the details and notice that the plants are exotic and have black leaves. I am indeed on Woue but not in the Noma desert where we can fight without causing damage to the environment. I destabilize and DEILD.

      I repeat the teleportation process from our room. This time when I snap my fingers I find myself laying on a red sandy dune. When I stand up and look over the top of the dune I see a red desert with crashed space craft scattered around! I look behind me and see Hade. He looks like he does in JadeGreen's art! Unfortunately Manei and Jay aren't there. Hade ignites his rockets so I guess it's time to fight! I try throwing a rock at him with telekinesis but it is blocked by a purple hexagonal shield that pops up infront of him. I realize I am a little taken off guard and don't have time to remember my strategy. We both fly at eachother and I try a Superman punch but it is blocked by his shield. We then tangle together (because I grab hold of his arm.) and then we spin around eachother midair. I realize being in close is not a good idea because I have had problems with wrestling in dreams so I let go and we both get flung away from eachother by centrifugal force.

      When I float from the tumble I feel a pain in the leg from where he hit me with a staff in the last dream we fought in. I wonder if I got hit but I realize it's just a bruise. I learn that I don't have healing factor like Hade and Manei do. Hade pulls out a bow and arrow and I know I have to deflect any arrows he sends with telekinesis or I am done for! Unfortunetly the dream starts to destabilize even with neither of us landing a clear hit.

      I DEILD again but this time I don't think I have the energy for another match. I experiment with pulling up the HUD again, trying to study it's buttons, but I keep destabilizing for the rest of the REM cycle.
    9. Dream Fragments 07/03 - 07/4 2023

      by , 07-04-2023 at 08:55 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      My dreams have been pretty fragmented lately so I don't have any full dreams but I thought I should share anyways.

      Teen Titans 10
      I remember yesterday dreaming that I was Dick Grayson as Nightwing again. Jason Todd was killed so I agreed to team up with Batman again and return to the mantel of Robin and go back in time to save Jason.

      Star Wars Battlefront VR
      I put on my VR headset and am totally imersed in the Metaverse. There is a new Star Wars Battlefront game where you get to be different characters from the movies and I go on an adventure playing through the game. When you choose your character you walk up to these statues of the characters to choose. There are all sorts of characters to choose from both sides. I start out as a rebel and save Princess Leia. Then I am her and I am starting to help organize the rebelion. Then I switch to a Jedi in a bar. There is a place for target practice with blasters but three Sith women notice me use the force to pick up a blaster. Their leader has a bow and arrow and I duck under a table only to find someone else is already hiding there. The Sith come down to find me and I try shooting the blaster at them but the trigger is nearly impossible to pull. There was a lot more to this dream but it is so fragmented now from sleeping in.

      Almost WILD
      At about 11:45 AM my partner K starts moving around and I realize I am half awake and I feel that the arms of my dream body are in a differnt position than I left my real arms were when I left them last which is a sign I'm about to get a WILD. I can't maintain it because my K is moving around so my WILD fails. I get short bit of dream I am in a Runescape trying to sell some stuff on the Grand Exchange. I see people wearing adamantine armor before I wake up.
    10. College Again

      by , 07-03-2023 at 06:10 AM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      College Again (NLD) 07.02.2023

      I am in the animation drawing class at my old college except instead of rows of computers there are normal desks with seats. The professor is MF and he says we have to design space craft for this assignment. I look in my portfolio for a blank piece of paper and pull one out. After I start drawing I realize there is already part of a drawing drawn in ink and it clashes with what I have drawn in pencil so I need to find a different paper without anything on it. This is when I start to question why I am back in college. After all, I already have my degree. This is a common dream sign but the dream logic keeps me from doing a reality check! Instead I walk up to MF and ask if I am on the list of students. He takes a look at his notes and says I am indeed enroled in the class.

      After the class is over I go to the information desk because this just doesn't seem right. I walk up to one of the people at the desk and ask if they can tell me if I am enrolled in clases. "You see, I often have dreams I am back in school and I just want to know if I'm enrolled." They make up excuses of how they don't have access to this information. "What is my current GPA?" I ask. "You have a 2.2 from missing so many classes." I was an honors student so this stresses me out and I still don't become lucid.

      I go outside and there is some sort of game where you walk around a square shape made of squares drawn on the pavement in chalk. I get hung up in playing this game where you walk around the squares and things happen depending on where you land. This part of the dream is fuzzy now and, of course, I don't become lucid.
    11. Pirate Rivalry

      by , 06-28-2023 at 07:49 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      Pirate Rivalry (NLD) 06.28.2023

      I am in a mideval town and I am part of a crew of pirates who use this town as their hometown. I am the mage of the party, being able to specialize in telekinesis even though I am not lucid. First I pick out an outfit with a fancy hat and then we go to the market to shop. I can't remember much until the part where we run into our rivals. We get in a tussle with them and I use my telekinesis abilities but I don't remember the details.

      The next fragment I remember is we are running into a concert hall and telling the musicians that the rival pirates have placed a bomb in the organ that is set to go off on the final note of the song. They inspect the organ and say they haven't found anything. However, when I look inside I am able to use telekinesis to levitate out the bomb and I throw it into the ocean.

      The next fragment is me heading home. I am worried that we will be attacked by our rivals. My home isn't there for some reason! I have a scale model of the place that looks 3d printed. I think that I can use dream control to convert it into a full sized home but nothing I try works. One of the rival pirates shows up to goad me. She is a young woman with the teeth and eyes of a cat. She patronizes me to come out and play. I realize now that she might have been a dream witch.
    12. Reverse Gravity

      by , 06-26-2023 at 09:35 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      Reverse Gravity (NLD) 06.26.2023

      I am in a building with some people when I start to feel an earthquake. At first I think it might just be a normal earthquake but it keeps getting worse and worse until suddenly it feels like gravity is pulling from a different direction. Gravity starts pulling everything in the room to the side and then up and it goes all the way around the room like that scene in Inception! It makes mess as everything in the room is flung around.

      When gravity comes full circle and is facing down again the earthquake stops and for some reason it seems like a good idea to go outside. I look up and see little specs of objects in the air. Then cars start to fall from the sky... I take cover under an awning and narowly avoid the falling cars. They fall for some time.

      Afterward the world is a mess so much so that my brain decides its a post appocalyptic setting complete with inventory system from Fallout: New Vegas.
    13. Dream Fragments 06/20/23

      by , 06-20-2023 at 07:46 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I had a dream that continued every time I wake up but because of the extended length of that period it is all fragmented.

      I come home with a new super hero themed comic book. I start reading it in bed and the story comes to life with me as the main character.

      I have super powers and there is a superhero woman who is guiding me through becoming a better superhero. The only dream power that I remember having is super speed like The Flash. There is a love interest and the characters parents who I have to keep my powers a secret from.

      Next fragment I remember is being in a car chase where the character's parnents are in the car.

      The last fragment I remember is after the car chase and the character's parents are dead! I put down the seats in the back of the car and try to lay their bodes down carefully. I don't believe they are dead but the teacher supehero lady confirms they are indead dead. I say, "I can run so fast I can go back in time and save them!" and the lady says that it doesn't work that way.
    14. Dream Fragments 6/18/2023

      by , 06-18-2023 at 06:24 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I don't remember the full dreams but here are two fragments.

      Fragment One: I am living with my mom except we are wealthy and have a very big nice home. I am working with my internet friend, KS, on a project. Later on, my mom is out of town and I invite KS to visit to work on the project. KS goes into some sort of psychotic break and starts rearanging the entire house and even spray painting on the walls. I am powerless to stop him. When my mom gets back she is furious and I am forced to kick KS out.

      Fragment Two: I am in school again, which should have been a good dream sign but that is lost on me. A woman comes in with very red hair. Apparently she is dropping off her daughter who in the dream I remember from going to highschool with in waking life although I can't remember her now that I am awake.
    15. Other Relationship

      by , 06-18-2023 at 02:03 AM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      This dream made me uncomfortable but I still want to journal it because this isn't the first time I had a dream like this one and I am trying to journal every full dream here.

      Other Relationship (NLD) 06.17.2023

      I am someone other than myself, something that happens fairly often in my non lucids. He is younger and has more of a punk or goth vibe than I do in waking life. This character I'm existing as is single until he connects with someone on a dating app. She has kids and is getting a divorce which doesn't bother him at the start of the dream. They spend more and more time together and start to feel close. The weeks pass by at a dialated rate and her divorce starts to get messy. She starts pushing him away, probably from the stress. The final blow comes when she tells him she is going back to her husband and she breaks up with him. This is when I wake up from my alarm and I just sit there processing the loss, not fully comprehending that it is just a dream. I spend about a week in dream time contemplating the loss.

      In the next fully solidified dream scene I am in a room with her playing video games with her kids and my waking life girlfriend, k, is there too. This situation makes me very uncomfortable because I am starting to remember my real relationship. I tell everyone that I am unfomroftable and sink into the back end of the room until I wake up.

      When I wake up, of corse, I can remember my waking life fully again. It takes me a while to process it and talking to K really helped. Overall this only makes me appreciate K even more!
