    Fragment of Dreams

    1. Put that tutorial in a cage!

      by , 06-05-2013 at 05:34 PM
      The room is white, featureless, indirectly illuminated, and the only object in the room is a black-metal cage, approximately 42 inches on a side. The bars are about 3 inches apart and I can clearly see that nothing is inside the cage.

      My intention is to put the Dream Control tutorial into this cage. It's what I'm supposed to do and it's also what my father wants. I did feel odd having him advise me in any way about dreaming material but he seemed to know what he was talking about, though he was never in the room.

      I struggled for a while with the concept of placing the tutorial in the cage and how it wouldn't escape the particular style of cage, since the spacing between the bars was easily wide enough to slip through (for a tutorial) when I woke up.

      I don't even know what to say about this dream.
    2. A Visit To The DreamWorld Academy

      by , 04-23-2013 at 04:59 PM
      I've been working on the reopening of the DreamWorld Academy section of the forum and I guess it has influenced me. :)

      I'm standing on a balcony overlooking a moderately wide castle room below me where my friends stand in front of a large fireplace. The walls and floor of the room and the balcony I'm standing on are all made of large blocks of worn, gray stone. The room is warmly lit by candles and some other unseen source but no fire burns in the empty fireplace.
      The walls are sparsely decorated with a few key paintings and tapestries. The room has a couple small tables near the walls and one larger table in the middle of the room, complete with an oil lamp and some nondescript items on the table. Above the fireplace is an engraving noting the lineage of the DreamWorld Academy but the few words are not written in English.
      As is common in my dreams I have a mixture of celebrities and animated characters as my acquaintances. Tom Cruise is dressed like some kind of ranger, Barry (the fat kid on American Dad) is looking smarter than usual, and an Asian schoolgirl with dark hair and the typical short skirt stands off to the side looking meek but capable. Tom Cruise is holding a long, wooden staff at his side.
      Without warning the floor around the fireplace begins to rotate on a pivot, revealing a new chamber behind the fireplace. Barry and the Asian girl step off the rotating floor but Tom Cruise quickly examines the situation and drops his staff to prevent the panel from completely rotating and cutting off the group's entry.
      A distant light-source is visible from the next chamber and the light appears as though it does not come from a source of warmth. The light appears cold and bright, almost ethereal but not wavering. Just as everyone turns to look in that direction to see the interior of the room...the dream ends.

      It's a good first visit. I plan to try and incubate future visits.
    3. Lucid and Singing at 7-11 - 04/21/2013

      by , 04-21-2013 at 06:39 PM
      I'm not usually one to sing around people, at least not on my own, so when I found myself in the middle of a 7-11 singing along with the overhead music I became lucid. It's not uncommon for me to have music in my dream or sing inside my mind while in the grocery store but this is a new treat for me in a lucid dream and I go with it.

      The song I'm singing is All-Star by Smash Mouth, not my first choice for a musical number but apparently easy to remember. As I begin singing I start walking around the aisle, checking out my control and it occurs to me that I should make the most of this neat scene. I have always wanted a musical number in my dream and now I have one.

      As I finish the first stanza I slightly raise my arms and the dozen-plus people in the store all stop in place, shopping baskets in hand, and begin singing the chorus. It sounds really cool and I'm totally digging on making this happen.

      "All that glitters is goooolllddd! Only shootings stars break the mold!"

      I continue singing and I'm even impressed I can recall the words so easily. the novelty of singing in a dream isn't wearing off though I find I'm not so keen on my voice as the solo participant. Still, I keep singing as I slowly walk among the stock-still shoppers.

      "It's a cold place, and they say it gets colder
      You're bundled up now, wait 'til you get older
      But the media-men beg to differ
      Judging by the hole in the satellite picture."

      "The ice we skate is getting pretty thin
      The water's getting warm so you might as well swim
      My world's on fire, how 'bout yours?
      That's the way I like it and I'll never get bored."

      And again the people erupt into song and I'm thankful to blend in with the harmony.

      "Hey now, you're a rock-star
      Get the show on, get paid..."

      I don't know any of these people but it's funny watching them standing there like an awkward music video.

      "All that glitters is gooolllddd!"

      As they sing this part they raise their arms in the air and wiggle their fingers for emphasis. I can't help but smile. :)

      "Only shooting stars break the mo-o-ollld!"

      The song ends and I'm slightly glad the pressure is off. My throat feels dry and scratchy and I wake up, still smiling and feeling happy.

      I'm an All-Star! :D

    4. 04/11/2013 - How Lucid Dreams Work - 1st dream (lucid)

      by , 04-11-2013 at 07:06 PM
      I'm chatting lucidly with a male DC that seems to be almost otherworldly. He appears human but there's something more to him that I perceive as futuristic and knowledgeable.
      My surroundings are unimportant and appear to be contained within some misty cave, dark and foreboding, secretive, the kind of place where stuff like this happens.
      The man is dressed in white clothing and is holding a box to his chest, about 12 inches on a side and perhaps 7 inches thick. It appears to be internally illuminated and glows a light green color, though it is not transparent.
      The man explains to me that if I place my hand on the box then the patterns my hand makes will determine the kind of lucid dream I have. This isn't hand-reading technology but in fact responds to various patterns, and it's these patterns that control all kinds of dreaming.
      I place my hand on the box and the scenery around me shifts to a brilliant blue view of the ocean from cliffs. I flex my hand and it changes again to scenes from past dreams, odd-looking skies and places that don't exist.
      I want to step into one of these scenes but everything gets fuzzy and I wake up, needing to pee. :(
    5. So...many...rats

      by , 04-06-2013 at 07:55 PM
      So much sadness...see the note following the dream.

      The first details of the dream are lost but I remember standing with Jen along the north side of the house I grew up in. Trees are around and above me, and to my right are the railroad ties that separated my property from the neighbor's.

      I was thinking about how I heard noises the previous night and thought maybe a rat was under the house. I was telling this to Jen when I looked down and saw a blue rubber drainage hose used for draining the washing machine. It was larger than normal and near the end was a large motionless rat.

      I pointed at the rat to illustrate what I had just been saying. "See? I guess it ate the poison and once it bit into the hose and found water the poison became activated and killed it." At least, this was my theory.

      My gaze travelled to the left and I knew I was correct as I saw another rat, and then several more. I couldn't believe the poison had killed so many rats. Of course I was wrong. As I continued to leek left and see more rats I discovered some were still moving and actively biting into the hose. The more I looked to the left the more alive the rats seemed to be.

      I began counting them. One-two....three-four-five-six....seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven. That must be all of them. Wait, no, there's more. Twelve-thirteen-fourteen...fifteen, sixteen, seventeen! Wow!

      I'm not sure which amazed me more, seeing 17 rats ranging from dead to alive munching on the drainage hose or actually counting from one to seventeen without becoming lucid enough to actually do something.

      I woke after this for the need to pee...stupid body.

      WHat really made me sad was that I had hoped to have a good sleep period with strong dream recall, you know, because there wasn't any need to wake up early on a Saturday morning. Unfortunately that plan was foiled by my friend calling me at 8:49 AM and waking me to remind me the Scouts were going to do a team-building course this morning and they were meeting at 9:00AM. The act of rushing to get myself and my son dressed, fed, prepared with lunch and up to the meeting place pushed all thought of dream recall from my mind. :(
    6. The Snowie Ophie

      by , 04-02-2013 at 06:50 PM
      This is a fragment from two nights ago.

      I'm in space...or at least my perspective is in space, much like viewing a movie where the camera is in space.

      Approaching me is a spaceship...sort of like the Discovery in the movie 2001. It's coming towards me and is about to encounter the Snowie Ophie, an anomalous object in space that looks...odd.

      Imagine viewing a large mushroom from above...now slice off the top part of the cap and the mushroom just above the stalk, including the veins. What you have left is a brownish-gray mushroomy disc floating in space. That's the Snowie Ophie (as in OpheliaBlue).

      I don't know why it was there but it was significant.

      This...means...something. Wish I knew what.
    7. Legos and A Map To My Doctor

      by , 03-09-2013 at 03:47 AM
      First thing I can recall is being in my doctor's office. Of course, as n most dreams, nothing is right.

      The interior of the building is appointed much like so many medical buildings...utilitarian furniture and carpet in shades of gray and brownish-orange. I'm on the ground floor of the building and behind me is a large waiting area, a large skylight illuminating the far wall and a patch of floor near the door that leads to the patient examination rooms.

      Something drew me to a desk in front of me, slightly closer to the middle of the building. A man (possibly a doctor) and a woman need to find their way to my doctor's office and I know I can help. I tell them...

      "I have an app on my phone for that. I can help!"

      The doctor and I both pulled out our phones. I watched him press a small recessed button below the screen of his phone and the display lit up with the time and some other useless stuff. I pressed a similar button on my phone and a map of the building appeared on the screen. Drawn on a white background was a pattern of the building in black and red lines, and peering closely at the screen revealed the names of doctors corresponding to where they were located in the building.

      At one end of the U-shaped building was the area behind me, Doctor Walker's offices, which was where the lost people needed to go. Following the map I saw the entire shape of the building, the map auto-rotating to reveal the other levels and the offices within. The 3-story building was quite intricate on the map though it was only three stories at one end of the building.

      I felt I had done a good job drawing the map, especially since I had done it on my phone with my finger an a drawing app. An overwhelming urge to build the structure came over me and I leaned down to my Lego box to begin assembling the necessary pieces. I started with a green base which I attached two large supports from the farm-kit my daughter had in her Lego box. I was slightly bothered because they were tan but I wanted them to be red. I knew there was nothing for it so I continued building, adding pieces to link the supports together.

      Unfortunately my building skills in the dream were less than stellar and my construction kept falling apart. My frustration is all I recall, though I believe the dream continued on.

      [B]Oddly, drawing a map and working with Legos are both dream goals of mine for future lucids. I hope I can work these elements into a lucid dream.[/B]
    8. Leash Law in Waco

      by , 03-07-2013 at 12:07 AM
      I travelled to Waco, Texas, to give my friend something. Was it a sleeping bag? A large jelly roll? I don't know...but it seemed like a bundle of some sort. I never found out what it was because it became a small dog.

      The dog wiggled in my arms as the building I stood in resolved into a veterinarian's office. I guessed the dog needed to pee by its wiggling and the stressed expression it displayed. I turned around to find the wall missing and I'm staring at what should be a dog park in Waco, though it appeared like the intersection of Rundberg and IH-35 in north Austin.

      Across the street was a gas station which looked much like the lot I was standing in, yet I held to the conviction that I was in a dog park and the police would be none-too-happy if I allowed my dog to roam without a leash, even for the need to pee.

      I implored the vet to give me a leash but he told me again, though I missed it the first time, that the dog would be fine and no leash was needed, nor available. I took a chance and let the dog down...

      And then something happened but I forgot it. Damn these weekday dreams!

    9. The Escalator in L.A.

      by , 03-06-2013 at 05:33 PM
      California is indeed strange.

      I was driving my son to see my dad in the San Francisco Bay Area, coming from Texas. The highway stretches out in front of me with little on either side, but ahead of me is Los Angeles. The sky is clear above me but ahead dark clouds loom over the city, appearing like angry storms. I attribute this to normal California fog.

      L.A. is just a stop in California before we turn north, a place to get some food and stretch our legs. We decide to go to a multi-level shopping mall with wide open spaces and skylights that keep the place well lit.

      I don't recall all of the details but I know a food-court was present and even some of my son's friends from scouts. I know I felt odd about that seeing as we were in California.

      [B]When we headed out we had to go down an escalator and running down it caused me to become lucid. I knew it felt oddly out-of-place and looking down I decided it would be better if the escalator was sloped instead of having steps I could trip on. The escalator took on the appearance of a moving sidewalk similar to ones in airports all over the world, except with a downwards slope. (I realize as I write this that I've been on a sloped moving sidewalk before at a grocery store in Oakland)

      Reaching the end of the sloped sidewalk I knew my movement would carry me too far over and I would fall, so I picked up my feet to hover my way to the doors of the mall. I've flown many times, or floated, but never before have I done it in a fully up-right standing position while moving horizontally. It was a neat feeling, as though solid ground was beneath my feet so I had purchase yet being propelled along with no effort and no ground-contact.[/B]

      After that I went to my dad's house, used the toilet and wrapped my nude body around the backside of the toilet while lying on the floor, staring up at one of my dad's friends. Honestly that part wasn't really interesting so we'll just leave it at that. ;)
    10. A Fragment of Italian Truth

      by , 03-04-2013 at 07:14 PM
      Sadly I can only recall an interesting fragment of my dream but I know it involved searching for a video on the internet which showed once and for all how the Italians had learned the ultimate secret to life and happiness and had put it in a video which starred Hobbits and Mario Bros. characters.

      Sadly, I saw it but then lost the link and could never find it again. :(

    11. Nothing special

      by , 01-11-2013 at 10:09 AM
      I'm on the west side of Barton Springs Pool and it's late...or early....not really sure but the surroundings are dark. The normal fences that encompass the pool don't seem to be effective barriers any longer as I watch a police car drive along the edges of the pool, patrolling the area for vandals and hooligans.
      I happen to know someone is across the pool from where I'm standing and I wonder if the officer will notice and what he may try to do to stop the person. As I'm thinking this he turns on his spotlight and shines it across the way. Unfortunately his bean does not illuminate the person I can see and the officer eventually gives up his search.
      While his light is on I can see his face and I recognize the officer as a man I know, a police officer in real life. I don't often get to see him in uniform and he appears more...sturdy, than I'm used to seeing him.
      As he begins to drive off I turn on my small but powerful LED flashlight and point it across the pool. It's beam is far brighter than the officer's spotlight, I note with a mix of pride and sadness, and I can clearly see every detail, including the man lurking across the pool. He is dissheveled, tall and thin, and wearing a light grey casual business suit. His facial hair suggests he hasn't seen a mirror in quite some time and I suspect he in on the run from someone or something, a feeling which grows as I see him protectively clutching an object to his chest as though he feared its loss.
      Out of kindness or pity I turn my light off but I can still see the man, the darkness which previously seemed pervasive now replaced by an odd twilight effect. I know this can't be real but I don't seem to be bothered by it all that much.
      I wake up and the dream is replaced by the sound of traffic and construction equipment operating half-a-block away. Just a tiny dream.
    12. Dream Control Powers

      by , 10-14-2012 at 07:06 PM
      This was my shortest dream of the night but the most significant.

      I find myself in a pine forest, an unknown setting for me. People are around but they seem to be keeping their distance as though they're waiting on something or afraid of me and the people closest to me. It turns out they have good reason as mystical powers are being worked with.

      The teenage girl closest to me is dressed like Shiro from Deadman Wonderland.


      She is standing near a wall about three feet high that may be made from old railroad ties. Her arms are in front of her with her palms down as though to summon something. Beneath her hands are two white bars, each about six inches long, two inches wide and just over an inch high, stacked one on top of the other. My perspective is from slightly below her and in front of the low wall. Looking up at her I can see light bathing her from below as though the bars are radiating light...but more than that...waves of energy seem to be all around, as though power is being unleashed.

      The girl is not as experienced as I am but I can see she definitely has power and potential. As her hands hover over the bars waves of new energy are released, enough to affect the very air like a strong wind. I'm eager to see if she will fully release the power from the bars.

      The truly significant thing was the source of power in the bars was dream-power, something I knew to be known as Regional Dream Stabilization. The stronger the power of a dreamer the larger an area they could stabilize and control. The effect was radiant so worked in all directions from the source. I was really eager to see how the effect of her powers unfolded, and I wasn't alone. The others in the forest grove were also on edge waiting for something to happen.

      And then I woke.

      by , 08-27-2012 at 05:23 AM
      I have had a lot of dreams about chat lately. fOrceez also appears in a few of them. Weird.

      [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3][/SIZE][/FONT]
      [SIZE=3][FONT=Calibri]Iím dreaming about the DreamViews chat and I am responsiblefor setting the channel modes. Iím used to the bots doing it but I really wantto take a turn and have a little fun with it. First I change the mode to+funsta but it isnít what I expected so I change the mode to +42, a littleHitchhikerís Guide To The Galaxy joke. I see that fOrceez is in the channel andI change the mode for him to +StepOnTheGas which seems appropriate for him andhis upbeat nature.[/FONT][/SIZE]

      Dv Chat is still influencing me. I wish I could remember all of this dream but only this fragment remains.
      [FONT="Calibri"][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3][/SIZE][/FONT][/FONT]
      I recall having a brief DV chat with Artelis, though in thedream the name was confused with the spellings of Artulis, Asensual andAdwellis. I can tell why I was confusing the names and I realize that I need tospend a little less time on DV chat.
      [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3][/SIZE][/FONT]
      And thatís all I recall from that dream fragment.
