    Tribes: Ascend & The Devil

    by , 04-25-2012 at 01:44 PM (903 Views)
    I have become extremely addicted to the shooter Tribes Ascend which is a free online FPS with RPG elements like XP and leveling. I was dreaming about being in the game... I had a feeling I would because you can virtually fly in it, which sometimes inspires dream flight for me.

    The initial details are all but lost. I remember having a high-tech weapon and my GF was with me.

    In the middle of a futuristic outdoor daylight dream, we were suddenly transported (or entered a door) to a dreadfully unwholesome looking mansion with long corridors filled with maggots. This part I recall in fragments, but what I do recall is extremely vivid. At one point we had to crawl through these mini-halls and our hands were constantly crushing maggots into disgusting goop. My GF and I came clear of one, and came to a room with a set of gothic looking shelves stacking out of a heavily engraved desk-like piece of furniture.

    On the top shelf was something like a metallic engraved pot. Suddenly, a glowing tan colored image began to project out of it. The image was very poor at first, and then a solid dark gray leathery head appeared and announced:


    "I am the devil."


    The face was inhuman. Something like a classic gargoyle but the eyes were large and out of proportion. My GF and I looked at each other curiously. It went on to say something very similar to this effect:

    "I am the devil. There are a few matters to discuss. First, I will compliment the mathematical formula you have devised to divide any surface into equal triangles. You are commended, duly commence to share-ing-ly express this knowledge abroad." (He was speaking to my GF who is a math wiz in real life.)

    I turned to my GF and said: "Weird that the devil would use the word shareingly." (I am not 100% certain this is the exact word used in the dream, it was something very similar to "shareingly.")

    He continued "You both must be hungry. But as you can see, there is nothing to fill your stomachs in my domain...
    (I remember thinking, we could starve in this place.) Therefore, I will produce food to sustain you..."

    A beige cloud formed around the desk, then quickly dissolved. Two delicious plates of food were left placed. (See: Stealing Mexican Food.) We both dove in without thinking twice. I noticed that there was something pulsing at the bottom of my plate. Thinking back, it seemed the only thing to make food from was... maggots. With a sinking feeling, I looked at my GF's plate. She only had a few crumbs left.
    --Then I woke up.

    This is my 2nd dream featuring the devil in the past year. I don't recall any other occasions. The first was lucid, and isn't posted to Dream Views. This is the third Trickster dream posted to dream views.

      I'm looking at this dream more closely and noticing an interesting motif. First I was "ascended" into an advanced freeing future, then, suddenly "descended" into a dark constricted underworld.

      Epic dream. Great detail. Nice realization that the only thing to make food from would be maggots. Great monologue. Good read.

      Slimy yet satisfying

      And yeah the mind can be very prone to mood swings when you're dreaming. Some association probably triggered some negative thinking causing you to be flung into a darker more constricting place.

      As it turns out, a better explanation seems to be at hand:

      I went from playing Tribes Ascend in April (when the dream was posted) to playing Diablo 3 May 15th. The dream seems to be in anticipation of that. I had a vague "feeling" once or twice I would "stop playing" Tribes Ascend to play D3. This was passing, and not a developed notion or opinion until after this dream got me thinking about it...

      Nice description!

      "I am the devil. There are a few matters to discuss. First, I will compliment the mathematical formula you have devised to divide any surface into equal triangles. You are commended, duly commence to share-ing-ly express this knowledge abroad."
      Fantastic that you remembered this much DC speech. That is one of the most important things in dreaming to me.

      A beige cloud formed around the desk, then quickly dissolved. Two delicious plates of food were left placed. (See: Stealing Mexican Food.) We both dove in without thinking twice.

      This is good enough to be in a movie.
