    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. Spring Competition 2024 Night 7

      by , 04-05-2024 at 04:47 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I had two long semi-lucids. I did my best to get points but I waited over an hour before journaling so I hope I didn't forget about any tasks I completed.

      Spring Competition 2024 Night 7 (DILD) 04.05.2024

      I am in school and I open my textbook to find notes from a prior student that are all about some sort of fantasy world parallel to our own.I become lucid from this and start reading the notes. The teacher tells me to focus on the class but I don't. (I could have gone with my goal to get a good grade in dream school but I wasn't lucid enough to remember that.) The dream transitions to me being part of a super hero team. I show them the notes and they dismiss it as unimportant.

      I feel a bit more lucid and feel like doing a reality check so I use telekinesis on a rock and make it fly into my right hand. It is a shiny red stone. I learn from the text book a bunch of new powers that I want to try. I summon a star wars speader and the dream transitions to that one Mos Eisley map from the original Star Wars Battlefront 2. The other super heros are disagreeing with me using my new powers. I wake up.

      I laid in bed trying to remmeber my dream form about half an hour before WILDing back into the dream in Mos Eisley.

      After the dream forms I teleport to the parallel world. At some point I summoned a lightsaber. Man I wish I could remember more but that's all I got!

      Spring Competition 2024 Night 5 (DILD) 04.01.2024

      I am in a lucid dream where I am at some sort of amusement park and there is a bad lady mind controlling the workers. I go and use mind control to free some workers minds and then we spread out to free the other workers. It changes from an amusement park into a convenience store.

      After that I laid in bed for like an hour which is why I remember so few details of the lucid.
    3. Spring Competition 2024 Night 3

      by , 04-01-2024 at 04:49 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I did a short WBTB and it got me a short lucid

      Spring Competition 2024 Night 3 (DEILD) 04.01.2024

      I started the dream lucid as the dream was forming. I was in a city flying around and I knew a nuke was going to go off in 15 minutes. I flew down and found a bunch of soldiers that I knew I was fighting with. There was a display case that apparently had a button that could stop the nuke but non of my dream powers were working to break the glass or use telekinesis on the button.

      I give up on the button and explore a bit. I summon two glocks but somehow know they are airsoft guns. I want to shoot someone on full auto with them because it would be funny but I wake up before I get the courage to do it.

      I didn't really wake up during my 5am WBTB. I might need to make my alarm later in the morning. My dreams have been very challenging to dream journal lately from forgetting it all at the last minute of waking up and the dreams being very unusual. This time I will do my best to journal the whole dream. Maybe if I journal more for the comp my dreams will become more logical.

      SpringCompetition 2024 Night 2 (NLD) 03.31.2024

      I am visiting Japan with one my nephews, two friends, and a DC girl that in the dream I had a crush on but doesn't exist in my real life. We have a really nice AirBNB. It has Japanese style achitecture. We make ourselves at home and find that the shared quarters have a Karate dojo in the middle of it. There is a retro style video game that is somehow connected to the plot. Like maybe we are there for a tournament or confrence for the game and the AirBNB is paid for by the game company. We play the game for a while and it is a side scrolling platformer. It's pretty fun!

      An official person comes to our AirBNB and says we did something against the rules in the game. They say that they are there to punish us. There is a long conversation where I try to figure out why they are here interspersed with scenes in the future of us being tortured! My nephew then finds blood on the floor at the corner of the dojo mat. I tell my nephew someone probably got hurt sparring but he things we are all doomed.

    6. Winter Competition 2024 Night 12

      by , 01-18-2024 at 08:13 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I meditated for 45 minutes last night and slept really well.

      Winter Competition 2024 Night 12 (NLD) 01.18.2024

      I am in my reoccurring post-apocalyptic setting and with a group of rebels. A mind flayer was summoned to our world on a mission to kill us all. In the dream we didn't know what a mind flayer was and it was really scary. We just knew it was an alien hell-bent on our demise. We hunkered down in a base and set up traps. I don't remember how that went when it showed up but we defeated it only for a second mind flayer to show up later.

      Somehow the dream transitioned later to a school setting and I asked a girl I had a crush on out on a date.
    7. Winter Competition 2024 Night Five

      by , 01-11-2024 at 08:34 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I woke up for a WBTB and took 4mg galantamine and 300 mg Alpha-GPC.

      Winter Competition 2024 Five (MILD) 01.11.2024

      I spontaneously become lucid and start flying. I remember there is a competition and that I need to do my three step task. While flying I reach behind my back and grab something. I pull forward a small lemon. I take a bite out of it and it isn't very flavorful. I then put my hand forward like Superman and fly super fast. I hear the air rushing past my ears. Now I remember my personal goal is to take off a VR headset that is simulating the dream. I reach up and feel a vr headset that is much smaller than current waking life products. I take it off and... nothing happens. My view is replaced with the same view from before. Huh.

      I fly down to a city and get caught up in a dream plot that I have mostly forgotten now.
    8. Winter Competition 2024 One Naps

      by , 01-08-2024 at 01:37 AM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I took a nap and had more ludis.

      Winter Competition 2024 One - Nap One (DILD) 01.07.2024

      I think I wake up but it is a false awakening. Normally my false awakenings are at my childhood home at night but this one is my current bedroom during the day. I was planning on starting dating in a few months but in the dream I feel like making a Bumble account right away for some reason. I find myself staggering because gravity is all sorts of off. I do a reality check and confirm it's lucid. I am really suprised and remember my goal is simply to take off the VR headset. I reach up to my head and try but I can't feel one or force one to be there. I think it's because I didn't bother willing there to be one before trying. I wake up.

      It is super hard to get out of bed. I sit up and do another nose pinch RC and it is still a dream. I am always in awe of how really flase awakenings feel. I sit up in bed and try swiping up the VR hud from my left wrist but nothing happens. I say, "Clara", the name of my AI assistant and she doesn't respond. These things never seem to work as well in FAs as they do in other lucid dreams.

      I wake up into two more FAs before my real life eyes open and I am awake.

      Winter Competition 2024 One - Nap Two (DILD) 01.07.2024

      I am in a Dungeons and Dragons lucid dream. I don't remember the beginning of it. We defeat some hard enemies but one of our people gets cursed and becomes a powerful Oath Breaker Paladin or something he kills everyone, me last and I respawn inside my childhood home. It is dark. Familiar teritory. I know he is outside ready to chop me in half again. I have a bunch of D&D minis that I turn into full size fighters that I send outside. I hear them all get defeated and then the paladin comes inside and kills me for me to go back in time and start over. I send more and more minitures at him each time. The last time I send 8 powerful constructs after him and notice the house is getting surrounded by drow and vampires. "Even more trouble!", I think when I wake up.
    9. Winter Competition 2024 One

      by , 01-07-2024 at 04:58 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I had a lot more dreams than this but I only remember the part where I was most lucid.

      Winter Competition 2024 One (DILD) 01.07.2024

      I am lucid and flying over a futuristic city. I have to find a kitten that went missing. I fly down to one of the tops of the buildings and found it hiding. I pick it up and then interact with some DCs. Unfortunately I can't remember much more than that.
    10. Juliana Vs JadeGreen One

      by , 12-06-2023 at 05:34 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I woke up at 5:00 AM to WBTB and took AlphaGPC and Galantamine. My recall of the dream isn't perfect because I had a couple hours of dreams after this dream was over.

      Juliana Vs JadeGreen One (MILD) 12.06.2023

      I am in a dream that is based on The Last of Us. The dream starts out with the beginning of the outbreak and gets to the point where there are survivors living in small walled-off communities. I remmeber part of the dream I was fighting a zombie with a can of beans, trying vainly to crush his skull in. Later on, it is a nice sunny day and I am outside the wall. There are no zombies around and I become lucid spontaneously from my MILD and supplements. I fly up in the air before thinking about my goals. It feels good to fly again because it has been a while. Then I remember I was supposed to spectate Jay and Hade sparring. I fly back down and find them in the road. I tell them to get ready and say, "Jay, take out your wand." She does and I say, "3, 2, 1, Fight!"

      Hade fires up his jets (although the fire is invisible for some reason.) and Jay starts the somatic components to cast a spell. Hade closes the short distance and sumersaults in the air so he can kick Jay's wand out of her hand. Hre wand goes flying and he follows up with a kick to her center of mass.

      I remmeber Manei should be here so I turn around and Manei is there. I give her a hug and turn around to see the fight is over and Hade won. I talked with Jay a bit after this but I can't remember what we said or what happens next.
    11. Elminster and Strangespace

      by , 12-04-2023 at 01:29 AM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I took a nap and had this dream! I wish I could remember more of it.

      Elminster and Strangespace (DILD) 12.03.2023

      I don't remember how this dream started or how I became lucid but I am moving into a new apartment and know it's a dream. I must have summoned Elminster (Elminster is one of my tulpas. This is the second time he has shown up in a dream!) or he showed up because I was talking to him. Later on, we went to the grocery store together to get ice cream. I lose lucidity while waiting for a woman to get out of the way for El and me to get our ice cream. After she is gone I am amazed that I can see him so clearly next to me. I am talking to him out loud and know that no one else can see him so I must look crazy. I wake up for a bit.

      I quickly fall back asleep into a dream. I am in my new apartment with friends I don't recognize and we are playing D&D. I am DMing and the party gets trapped in a demi plane that might have been one in my setting called Strangespace. It was a maze of interconnecting rooms that sometimes loops back on itself in impossible ways and is filled with monsters. Suddenly, I found myself actually living out the life of a character in the game instead of sitting around a table. We are so scared and are trying to escape.

      We finally make it far enough away from where we started to find other "friendly" humanoids. They strike a deal with us to show us the way out. Ultimately we fail to follow up on the deal and have to go to court to defend ourselves. Then I wake up again.
    12. 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
    13. 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.

    14. 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.
    15. 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!
