    1. 16-08-19 Long-armed Monster

      by , 08-21-2016 at 02:40 AM
      Terrifying nightmare. I was in the garden of our old house. It was dark. I saw silhouettes in distance (it's a pretty big garden). I had enough of being afraid, and charged in - loudly screaming. But I hesitated. I came up with the excuse that maybe it wasn't necessary. I ran away again, but my fears manifested a creature that chased my out of the garden, onto the street. I looked back, and to my terror it was still chasing, coming straight for me. It was humanoid, but with unnaturally long arms. Like Slenderman, but not as tall and far scarier because it moved fast. So fast. The moment it was about to "get" me, I woke up in sheer terror.
    2. 16-08-18 How to Dismantle a Nuclear Bomb

      by , 08-21-2016 at 02:31 AM
      I have notes of a "swamp", a "woman swimming", and "crocodiles". I remember none of it, except the crocodiles.

      Dream took place in my old family home again. My phone buzzed in my pocket (allegedly, I remember nothing, these are old notes). My dad was upstairs. In the dream, I think he was installing (or had already installed) a fixed air conditioner unit. I could hear the annoying sound. In reality, it as my own crappy mobile AC that I was hearing, and the sound "leaked" into the dream in this form.

      I think I was on a quay, I think. I came across my old colleagues from my previous previous previous job (Tankpark). We did not split on good terms. I greet them, they ignore me. I was like "okay then", and continued on my way.

      We were in a garage-like space, dismantling a nuke. Notes tell me Xiaoxi (Chinese lady I know) was somehow involved, but I don't recall how. Heroes' Matt Parkman was there too (no surprise, I had seen actor Greg Grunberg in Star Trek: Beyond the evening before). At some point, Arthur Petrelli showed up and tried to stop us. I ignored him, saying he was dead. Suddenly, he turned out to be an older man called "Manny". I was supposed to know him from the past when he was younger, but didn't recogize him. He argued the world was in terrible shape, and asked us to stop. I convinced him it would only get worse if the nuke went off. We got ready to leave. Matt was interested in a fish bowl with some fish still in it, randomly laying around in the garage. He took it with him. We crawled under the garage door, which was half closed. I felt extremely tired, physically. So did the others, according to my notes. We find ourselves in what looks like an underground parking garage. In the distance, I see armed forced enter from several entrances. Guys in full SWAT gear. I am suspicious. We get on our knees as if to surrender, and I think to Parkman (he's a mind-reader) to get ready to get us out of here if things go wrong. Not sure how he would have done that. He can't teleport.
    3. 16-08-16 Zombie Outbreak at Ichor Therapeutics

      by , 08-21-2016 at 01:56 AM
      I remember having a conversation with Heroes character Mohinder Suresh. I noticed he looked younger than he should, so I assumed I was in the past.

      I was sleeping (in a bed, obviously) in a room I didn't really recognize. At some point, my whole family walked by (mom, dad and possibly brother). They're standing by the window, looking outside. I join them, and see an airplane doing cool stunts. I want to grab my phone to take pictures, but to my anger I cannot find it!

      I saw a speech of President Obama, on a grassy lawn somewhere (not the White House). He suddenly spoke a few sentences in French. Although he spoke slowly, his pronunciation was spot on. I was impressed.

      I was with a couple of colleagues from the job I just got fired from. Our shift leader (Peter Bosmans) was with us. We were in a garage. The idea was, I think, to kill ourselves. I don't recall how. We'd kill each other one by one, with some kind of poisonous injection. I felt it was better to keep living, so I told them this. They didn't seem to have a problem with it, though I did think that if I was to survive, I would have to kill the last of them.

      Long dream. I was in a company HQ of a biotech company. There was a zombie outbreak. There was a guy in front of me. He looked pale, and his skin somewhat slimy. He was still lucid/aware. As I feared, he could not contain it any loner and attacked me. I fled, down a ladder? I waited, and prepared my chainsaw. It was a rather small chainsaw but whatever. He popped up, and I chainsawed him. In another scene I was swimming in a dark, half submerged part of the building. I had to dodge mines. I did this by swimming over them so quickly, that the explosions came too late and I could get past unhurt. In another scene I witnessed another man trying to escape the building. He came running out of a room on fire (both him, and the room).
      Later on, we found ourselves in a first-floor lobby. Large windows overlooked a sort of elevated yard with flowers and stuff, and then the plaza below, and the streets beyond. Reaching the main entrance below would require us to navigate more zombie-infested corridors, so I broke the window and wanted to escape by climbing down. In the yard, I saw a kid. He was dressed pretty poshly, and spoke in a British accent. He said it wasn't allowed to walk through the yard, and I think he wanted to ask his supervisor for permission. I ignored him, this was an emergency. We evacuated the building. On ground level, I walked with the others past the building and saw the company name: Ichor Therapeutics. This is a real company, lead by someone I know in reality. I doubted for a second. I felt like I had to go back in, as there were still many people lost and trapped inside the building.
    4. Caos

      by , 08-21-2016 at 01:38 AM
      There was caos in the streets. Women running everywhere. Mike & Meesha & I had to leave an apartment we were apparently living in. This strange dream continued in a second dream that I chained after my wbtb but lucidity still escaped me.

      Meesha cat woke me up over & over. It seemed like every hour she was waking me up & it was really confusing my dreamscapes.

    5. Flying Into Water

      by , 08-21-2016 at 12:31 AM
      I find myself upstairs in a hallway, and I recognize M Street. I do a quick noseplug, breathe twice and I'm good to go. I walk down upstairs hallway and there's a faint yellow hue hanging over the dream scene. I begin clapping to engage senses and increase vividness. Noise doesn't come on the first, but sensations and noise come on successive claps. I continue a few more steps as I rub hands and clarity picks up. I finally reach the rail and get ready for some flight up and over into the first floor entryway. There are glass double doors with glass windows to the right. I notice a resort looking area in the front which seems to be a blend blend of grass, some parked black SUVs in a cresent driveway, and a pool laying beyond. I decide to make it interesting iand go to phase through the light tan wall to the right and remember my dream goal of the reishi forest. I figure I could try taking this route to get there. As I go to phase through the wall, I notice that I'm transitioning into a very thick, high viscosity material and decide to pull my dream body out as I don't want to risk losing stability; I decide to take a simpler route for the moment. I approach back to the glass windows, and simply jump right through to the next area. Instead of transitioning directly to the outdoor resort setting, I enter to another room with a glass wall that leads to the back of a resort area - now containing a large pool in the center with a lounge area surrounding it. I fly over the single dropped step in the middle of the room and through the glass. It's a bright sunny day out in the resort area, and the water of the pool is crystal clear with a hint of blue. I remember the dream goal idea in I had thought about: going into water/underwater. I've never gone in water in an LD, so I use the opportunity. I fly swoop down and glide across the surface of the water, sticking my right hand out and trailing it through. I feel a bit of the resistance and texture of the surface. I then remember hearing some LDers talk about going underwater. I want to experience it, so swoop up, then plunge down into the water, and submerge quite a few feet. I then want to see if I can see as I notice my dream eyes are closed from habit. I open them, but everything is a dark gray murky color with a slight hind of green. I begin to feel myself waking to my physical bodyand get up for the day.

    6. 16-08-13 Alien Dinosaur Invasion

      by , 08-21-2016 at 12:19 AM
      I was in a room full of computers. Aliens were invading outside. An alien tried to get inside through an open window. I closed it with force, hurting the creature as its hand/paw got stuck. It yelped in pain.

      I ran through the building, which looked like a dilapidated garage or factory, possibly with my mother. The aliens were small-ish velociraptors (the previous breed looked far more humanoid), and by "small" I still mean a meter (3 feet) tall. One of the beasts bit my arm, and I was stuck for a moment. I managed to wiggle free, and noticed I wasn't really hurt.

      Once outside, I noticed a lot of computers in a circular configuration. They looked like the consoles we used in the chemical plant where I used to work. I noticed animals from various species congregating near the consoles, and I followed. I understood that was Earth's "last stand", and that all Terrestrial species would stand together against the alien menace. Major figures were William Fichtner (I skimmed through my dream the day before, and read about an earlier dream in which he appeared - this clearly triggered his presence here), and Michelle Rodriguez (looking badass as usual).
    7. Successful WILD via meditation + a little extra?

      by , 08-20-2016 at 11:31 PM
      Just woke up from an afternoon nap that was a lucid dream + an almost astral projection event.

      It was weird because during the time I was dreaming, I felt like I was having an OBE. I was in my bed still on my left side. I was shifting around and attempting to pull myself out of my body with an imaginary rope above me. I FELT MYSELF RISE but I could not see a damn thing.

      After fluctuating between sleep and wakefulness or perhaps false-wakefulness, I finally managed to find myself in what was a clearly a lucid dream - in my bedroom. The irony was that the lucid dream was not clear and 'clarity now' didn't really work out too well. The dream kept fading in and out because I wanted to explore but the DREAM-SCENE WOULD NOT LOAD FULLY. If that makes sense. It was like a poor visualization.

      I did however get to accomplish my dream goal of seeing the moon in the night sky; just a small goal to confirm that I can control the dream scene somewhat. I went inside a house next to me just to see what the dreamworld would load up for me.

      It was blurry and hard to move to say the least.

      Now for the big part, the induction technique:

      All I did was just lay in bed relaxed as possible with a clear mind.

      Yup, that's it. WILD with breath as an anchor.

      In other words, I lie there and make sure that MY FOCUS IS ON MY BREATH. Any weird thoughts from the day? Back to the breath. Textbook meditation I believe. Hynagogic Imagery/Thoughts/Sounds and other foolishness that was distracting? BACK TO THE BREATH.

      Until I felt 'The Transition' which was the weirdest shift of consciousness I have ever felt. I have no words for it other than it felt like mind was getting twisted and squished. When I was in the dream world, I tried my best to keep a clear mind by focusing on the dream world via my senses.

      The focus on something external has - for me at least - keep my mind quiet and aware. I reckon this is most likely why SSILD worked so well for me because the focus on external stimuli quiets the mind down from chatter and other non-sense. I am no master of meditation, but this is just my guess. I am still in pursuit of the goal to have a lucid dream at least 5 nights a week of better length and quality.

      On a side note, during the process of having random gibberish thrown at me to let me know I was falling asleep. I gently asserted that none of the information was real so I wouldn't get sucked into a non-lucid dream. Then I returned back to the breath as best as I could.

      This is going to be my technique going forth.

    8. [20-08-2016]

      by , 08-20-2016 at 09:04 PM (Snehk's Dreamlands)
      First dream

      It was a dark and unusually grim day. I was in my house, wondering if we're still friends with my best friend. I decided to leave my house. Suddenly I got teleported to an endless corridoor with doors on one side - I had a feeling that I'm in hell. Each door teleported me to different places, until I finally got to heart of darkness and destroyed evil. I grabbed everything that I could to good use except for one, most important thing.

      Second dream

      I was in some strange abandoned factory with some people. There were enormous reservoirs with some liquid fuel. We were closed down there and had to find a way out. Suddenly huge flames burst out of reservoirs. I had to find a way out before the whole place would explode. I decided to find a controll room that was buried under debris. I dug my way to the controll room, but there was nothing that I could use. I found a huge, humanoidal monster with gray skin and blue eyes instead. To defend myself I grabbed a chainsaw and tried to cut the monster, but it wasn't even scratched by it. With other people we escaped to an enormous ladder and tried to climb up one of reservoirs. Two people got up, I was almost there but monster smashed the ladder with great force. I grabbed edge of reservoir, but I haven't had enough strength to climb up. I asked for help, but no one wanted to help me.
    9. DJ Entry #10: 8/20/16 (AND HIS NAME WAS-)

      by , 08-20-2016 at 03:13 PM (Dream)
      Key:
      Notes
      Non-Lucid
      Half-Lucid
      Lucid
      Nightmare
      Mission

      Me and the other survivors were on a roof of a building, talking to some guys in CIA clothing about a mission. A guy asks "how many of you are there?"
      This girl replies "12."
      The CIA guy says "But there is only 12 of you."
      Some guy replies "She graduated early."
      Then we run into the building, it looks like a giant maze. The Mission you cannot get caught, this is my first attempt.
      A Guard saw me, so I ran at him at broke his neck. Then I grab another guard as a body shield for some reason he isn't yelling for help. A Third Guard saw me so GAME OVER.
      I respawn and get caught by the first guard this time without attacking him.
      My Third Attempt: I get past the First Bodyguard and use Second Bodyguard as a bodyshield.
      That dream ended there.
      Easter Egg
      Me and 3 friends were doing some easteregg at this waterpark like map. We would have to go down water/normal slides, which each had some animal in the water slide. One had birds, one had Spiders and one had maggots.
      After that we respawn at the beginning of the map, and we got one hour for meltdown. The map starts to break apart, green ooze which is probably deadly coming out of the ground, weird things come out of the ground that look like Valkyrie Drones from Gorod Krovi.
      This one girl says "I'm out." she leaves so it's up for me and my 2 other friends to finish it which I'm assuming we fail because this next dream scene.
      We go up the stairs, you can see things on the door which are silhouettes of animals which I remember two of them: Cat and Bird.
      Once we reached upstairs we were in a music classroom, it looked like the one I had from my Elementary School and Middle School, combined. I talk to two of the three friends that we attempted the easter egg, I tell them "we should try it another time." I think the Easter Egg of that Waterpark map is a Four-man one.

      Crazy Lady

      I was in a Crazy Lady's house, she wouldn't let me leave.
      AND HIS NAME WAS-

      Homer and Marge Simpson was driving, they were listening to a song which was a Young Woman singing "John Cena~" over and over. That was the whole song, and dream that dream was 20 minutes long.
      Weird dreams last night, I guess my streak of remembering dreams broke. See you tomorrow (maybe)

    10. 2016-08-20 another big night, WBTB, BTS, and sleeping in

      by , 08-20-2016 at 11:57 AM
      + I'm turning off and on some electronic security attached to a desktop computer system outside at a "fair". I'm inserting a USB flash drive into the USB slot of the computer. Later I'm inserting the entire drive into a door into the front side of the computer and I think this is really convenient because you can store the USB drive inside without risk of breaking off the attachment. You can retrieve it from the other side.

      + standing outside in a backyard garden. There is a pineapple plant on the ground mostly gone, just the bottom portion remains, I slice off a portion to eat and a massive cloud of hundred/thousands of fruit flies buzz up around my face, so thick I can feel them as I swat them away. The owner of this yard comes up and is really angry that I'm eating his plant, he picks a second plant which was still growing, and hands it to me sarcastically, saying "here, why don't you eat this one, too!?". I tell him he shouldn't have done that. I see now that I'm several yards away from my own yard and feel a bit bad about eating this guy's pineapple, I say I'm sorry several times.

      + I'm walking outdoors at the foot of a steep tall hill right next to me. There's a large square-shaped mansion nearby and I start scaling the front wall which is made from bricks. The facade of the house quickly becomes an impassable overhang, and I'm hanging off of the wall with one hand holding and looking up and trying to see a way forwards, but I can't. Then I'm floating/flying up along the side of the house, this is (Ronnie Lott's? Some famous 49er or football player)'s house, someone is criticizing him for quitting but I think it's fine to retire. I'm concerned about flying too high over the roof line because there may be automated gun turrets up there, I see tons of security cameras on the walls. There is a neighboring mansion that also has a lot of security cameras. I'm flying and I'm gaining altitude, and I head towards the flat roof top of a house nearby. I land and get a good running start and take off again.

      I land in my CH bedroom, I'm crouched down next to the wall along the hallway, and there's a small cabinet with containers there. I pour myself a glass of white wine. There are several opened bottles of white wine, with just a little bit of wine left in them, with the corks sticking out of the top. I see my glass of wine sitting on the floor, the wine is a light amber color. My (dad?) comes and wants some of the tomato sauce (for his cracker?). The bottles are sitting in the little cabinet/shelf thing on the floor. I notice that many of the bottles have loose tops. One looks like an unopened bottle. Bottle after bottle which I open is spoiled, there's lots of mold in the sauce. I toss several of the bottles in the trash. My dad says he really wants some of that sauce. I get the bottle which I think was unopened but it's also spoiled and moldy. He starts to dip his cracker in a particularly moldy bottle where the sauce is solid green colored from the mold.

      + I'm standing in a medium-sized square room with GS friend NM. I'm staring at the walls: they are all painted with brick-shaped patterns in many differnt colors but mostly various shades of blue. There are multiple different patterns along a single wall, one pattern area fading into another, 3-4 patterns along the wall, and I'm trying to figure out which one was the real/original pattern, N says something about this.
      N says "remember that huge table?" and I do [FALSE], it's a really large rectangular wooden plain-featured dining table. I "remember" how we fit 10 (20?) huge pizzas on that table during some party.

      + Outside daylight in some suburban driveway, [DO], observing a (mother and daughter?) how they leave the driveway and drive away on the road on some large inflatable water mattress. The mother gets on top, and the daughter crouches down on the side of it in the water (which fills the street). The girl then presses a button on a small wheel set into the side of the mattress, which then starts rotating, which drives the mattress forwards down the street, with the girl holding on and getting pulled along with it. I [DO] follow. The mattress soon enters the main street downtown, which has been shut down for the summer, closed to car traffic, and covered with inflatable jump house (inflatable raft) material, inflated, and covering all the street from curb to curb and extending forwards all the way down the street. The woman's raft "jumps" up on top of the street/raft base, and continues going forwards, the wheel moving it fairly slowly. I drift along [DO] behind it, observing the downtown. It is deserted for the summer, nobody is around. I look into little burger stands/restaurants which we pass wondering if they're open, don't see people inside.

      At the end of the street we reach a water park and enter. The road is a driveway that curves upwards and to the left. There is wording embedded on the ground that "<some place> sucks". Some guy says something about "marketing" which should be ignored because it's not sponsored by the water park. I approach the swimming pool (which is on a slope?) and enter the water. There are various groups of women/girls around and I approach near some of the girls checking them out but moving on. I get out and go to some (dressing?) area where one of the girls (naked?) is eating a snack and looking at something, and I think about getting a snack from my locker. Then there's a guy there who I "remember" I owe some money to, might as well pay him now, I get out my wallet and pick through it, find a $100 bill and hand it out to him. I keep looking through the wallet but there are not many bills left in there now.

      WBTB, read for 1.5 hours, some drowsiness returning
      BTS

      Took a long time getting back to sleep, sinking slowly into relaxation, doing DY (lotus, Ah) visualizations, relaxing breathing, relaxing SSILD. Start several times to get images appearing, noise in room distracts, but I tenaciously hold on to drowsiness and eventually return to sleep and dreaming.

      there were quite a lot of dreams but as per usual for > 8 hours after bedtime, recall is vague, except for a few moments which really stand out vividly.

      + guys & sex demonstration:
      Spoiler for yucky sexual content. ew.:


      + I'm lying face-down & naked on a raised boardwalk with gaps between the boards where I place my (ahem). People are gathering in an adjacent field and there are some people in a building across the field, I wonder if they'll see me.

      + I'm coming down a ladder, speaking in a convincing fake southern accent several times (belated day residue from Orange is the New Black?)

      + lying on mats outside with several people, I look up and see 3-4 small birds like sparrows hovering right above us, I sit up, one bird lands on my mat and gets huge like a vulture, has a humanish/dolphinish round head, I'm concerned about catching some disease from it and shoo it off my mat

      NON-DREAM DREAM LUCID

      Nonna is my late grandma, she passed away from cancer April 2015.

      I was in my Nonna's apartment. We were in her bedroom sorting through her stuff, organizing her room. I missed her a lot, but she seemed happy. We found a golden bracelet and she gave it to me. She said she had been keeping it for me and that it would help me find my way.
      I remembered someone had died, but couldn't remember who. I thought it was my Nonna's sister. I hugged her tight.

    12. #194: Map

      by , 08-20-2016 at 02:17 AM
      The details are a bit vague. I'm travelling, though I'm mostly just seeing a map top-down. It's vaguely like the view of the old Pokemon games. I'm travelling in my city in Indonesia at first. The map is incomplete. It's cut off at the left and right. Eventually the map does change and I travel some more I guess. At one point I'm able to see Manila on the map. On the map, it is below my city and it's quite small. In the dream, people have told me that it is not really a special city and it's quite small. Still, I wanna see it, just so I can say that I've been to the Philippines. When I look at the map again, the location has changed. It is now somewhere way further down and it's a tiny island. It's just north of an area called the Spanish Antilles. There's an area called the Spanish Antilles? I guess that makes sense, the ABC islands do have a Spanish ring to them. But no.. those are the Dutch Antilles.

    13. [17-08/19-08-2016]

      by , 08-19-2016 at 11:13 PM (Snehk's Dreamlands)
      17-08-2016

      I was sitting on a sofa on my kitchen. There was my mother, sitting on a chair in front of me. I had black spots all over my body and knew that something is wrong.

      19-08-2016]

      I was in my house, in my living room with teacher. We were discussing about music. Then I saw a group of friends, they were all men in their late forties. They were working in some research facility. They were afraid of one of their choices and safety of them and whole facility. I took an elevator with them, the men have scattered on different floors while I went to my work - transporting barrels of waste to hazard elimination unit. I moved some barrels but then an accident happened and controllers sealed off the chamber, which also stopped ventilation and closed me in chamber with green clouds of radioactive waste. I had troubles breathing, there were some women working in the chamber, talking about money they'd get for it. I thought that radioactivity would kill them before they'd get their money, and it will kill me too. Then a girl I know appeared and somehow destroyed protective seals so I could jump out of waste chamber and punch a controller. Then I had to escape, I decided to run into a metal tunnel with metal spirals that conducted electricity. I wanted to get through it to another part of complex, but then explosions on both sides of the tunnel stopped me. Flame wave almost got me, but spirals released energy wave that turned my body to quants and teleported me somewhere else.
    14. More Gym Stuff

      by , 08-19-2016 at 10:37 PM
      fragment 1: I'm wandering around the same racquet club with a friend; can't recall what we were doing.

      fragment 2: I'm still there, doing a closing shift. I am outside pool-side seemingly walking between the two sides of the building and there is a (platinum blonde) guy who is trying to salesman me some technique about driving. He keeps claiming I'll be committed once he adds the next step (reverse of me asking caption head to write for a show?). I go around thinking about checking the towels as I had not done any loads in a while. I remember being in an unfamilar landscape-esque area at this point.

      fragment 3: I'm back on the actual property and there seem to be a bunch of people I'm with, including the same guy from earlier. I keep doing awkward things but I am only certain of knocking over coffee cups (I knocked one over at band that day). The walkway above the lower fitness room is divided into two stories with the upper one having a sharp cutoff. I knock over a coffee cup at this area and nearly splash someone I used to know from band below.

      fragment 4: I am in a nearby hallway and the upper fitness room has been replaced by an elevator. I see the near-victim from earlier and am still with the same group (nearly instantaneous transition, almost not a fragment). I can't clearly recall her reaction although I believe it was an expression that she used to do commonly, similar to superficial shock.

      fragment 5: I'm then with I believe a different group and there is a big, dangerous snake we are trying to get out of the building. Prior to it retaliating I can't remeber much although it must have been near the kid's area and racquetball courts as I easily recall it striking near the exit there. we had been quickly kicking it in spurts to avoid any danger. We started to get cocky and feel a sense of comfort. Then it was near the doorway and the girl's turn to kick it. I got a bad feeling and the snake lunged. I don't think it made contact but then suddenly it was outside near me. I don't remember kicking at it but suddenly it was in my hands albeit at a distance. It lunged at me and was about 4 inches from my chest. I thought "fuck this" and woke myself up (improved lucidity/control?)

      dream 2 (after about 3 hours of sleep)

      fragment 1: I am at the 6-lane pool not far from where I had been before the unplanned WBTB. I remember there being a theme of gaming somehow (probably mid-dream recall). An instructor from band is there and he is my boss.

      fragment 2: there are structures in the bark near the pool scoop. I have to assemble these structures outside the bark (uncertain recall) and find the quotes describing the structures in the bark (definite). I only remember being in one spot despite the structures being spread out. I recall not being able to see the words in the random bark patterns in this one spot.

      fragment 3: another very slight transition. there are more people now (uncertain of number before, maybe not many) and they are jumping into the nearby river via two methods. There is an edge that I hypothesize is formed from a path being where the tool shed behind the pool was. all i can see is the distant edge. I also see people jumping off the tops of the nearby buildings. Despite a feeling of apprehension and never recalling seeing anybody surface I believe these jumpers were safe. Perhaps because their jumps were more look-at-this than suicidal. I do recall some worry from adults nearby. The jumpers seem to all be guys of late HS-early college age although I only recall a few. Back to the bark, for some reason I have to get gloves so I head to the bathroom which seems to be where the aerobics room is. the gloves had the look of latex gloves and smell/feel of sanitary wipes, both tools I had used IWL at work. At one point the room was crowded. I believe around now there were many people outside although that is also unclear. I also remember being in what seemed like the aerobics room but I had an awareness it was on the other side of the club (abstract space, doesn't logically fit like the 2-story walkway or elevator might). there were many people there. Back to whatever I needed the gloves for, I remember making 1 or 2 trips (the instructor is still here; hard to recall what he was talking to me but it was more friendly than boss-like. knowing his authority seemed to be more of an abstract intrinisc knowledge as most of his talking was this way, somewhat similar to how he talked to me at band despite being the lead instructor) and then the final trip I got a lot of extras. I was dissembling the bunch and walking outside while stuffing the spares into my pockets (another work practice although I don't recall ever getting that many extras). the dream ended in what I now realize as the same spot the last dream did.

    15. All gone futuristic

      by , 08-19-2016 at 07:41 PM
      D1 - Am at some kind of camp where people are competing. We are trying to get points in some kind of event. All gets a bit abstract something to do with a line with a gold thread on it and our team need to try and secure another part of it (this repeats).
      Meet up with some other groups who are dressed up like different types of commando gear but all in white. We have a little show down with the regular cadets who we are clearly superior to.
      A new match is about to begin and the "referee" for want of a better word says he will not be phased by our team.
      Our player is a guy with a grey beard as long zz-top and is maddly cackling and laughing at what the ref said.
      He is dressed in black and it is night time but he is illuminated by weird purple lightning and light reflected of grey smoke around him. He scares the b-jesus out of the ref.

      D2 - Am in a futuristic city, with the usual disparate bands of people wearing scruffy clothes and looking like they've never seen mtv.
      I have a metal hand held device which is kind of rectangular (I realise this is due to my incubation from before D1).
      Finding my way across the city which looks very grey , I need to find my way to somewhere but i haven't a clue how to get there so I need to stop to ask some locals. But I don't totally trust them, particularly a blond haired guy who seems to be the leader. I need to get on urgently with my mission.
      They point me in the right direction and I use my device to fly up through a hatch so I can look out across the city and over to where i'm aiming at.
      It turns out my mission is to save the world from genetically (or something) modified wheat.

      D3 - I am a college professor and am talking to an old guy with glasses who was a business graduate apparently. We are standing in the doorway of my house. I then leave with a very yellow looking wheat sandwich (it actually has wheat poking out of it) and arrive in the playground. There L and her double are sitting. Her double has blond hair instead of her dark hair.

      the gold thread which runs through these dreams (pun intended) ?? only thing golden thread reminds me of is the bit in disney's hercules when the three fates try and cut his golden life thread...hmmm curious indeed

      Choosing a heroic future? ...
