    False Awakening

    1. the realm of Provedence

      by , 11-14-2016 at 06:32 AM
      Unlike most dreams where I type them here primarily for my own benefit, when I woke up I had a strong compulsion to inform others about this place. I have no idea why, but its hereanyways, so, take from it (if anything) what you will.

      I'm part of an archeological team investigating a large circular marking in the middle of the floor in what might have been an old church. I touch the circle and I'm transported to a large room (which I understand to be an entirely different realm called provedence, located underneath the disc which comprises this particular dreamworld.) where a disc- like object that has the world map etched on it is rotating. I touch the disc where I believe North America is and I'm suddenly transported to the skies above where I touched it. Water is gushing down from the sky and I understand that this is the source of all waterfalls in the world. They all begin with the sky. Thanks to a parachute (which I apparently just had on me) I make it back to earth safely.

      Some time passes and now knowledge of provedence is common. People from all over the world visit. Turns out that hthe map isn't all there is in there. All of mankind possesses a "destiny force" (I'm stealing from Marvel) that allows them to influence the universe, even down to the physical laws and provedence enhances these abilities. Because of this Earth has become a utopis, as everyone uses provedence to fulfill there own desires . War etc. is simply not needed. When not in use provedence is gauarded by two men who I understand to be trustworthy.

      More time passes and I experience a false awakening. When I "get up", I see that my sister is in my room sleeping under a folded up cardboard box. I wke her and explain to her about provedence (why I hadn't done so behorehand is anyone's guess). We go there, but a friend of hers (who may be imaginary, yet simultaneously real, however that works.) informs her that he cannot go there. Only humans can. He seems genuinly scared of the place. This next scene could have happened whenever, but I think here is the likliest place for it. I'm in provedence, which is now a white void, yet it still possessees a serene quality. With me are a group of people who I think are naked (no idea if I am) and together we use the power in provednce to make ourselves more and more serene and calm and peaceful. We reach a maximum level and then through sheer willpower we surpass that too. It honestly felt beautiful and I'd be glad to revisit this place again just for that.

      More time passes. The world is now unpleasent in some non-specific way. It is understood that provedence has something to do with God. An old man now controls provedence and is using it to make the world unpleasent. A group of people (all of whom may have been the same type of psuedoimaginary people from earlier) are backing away from the entrence to provedence (now on the ceiing) in pain or discomfort. And so it ends.
    2. Mayan cities, a black hole and the Godfather

      Dreamt I was in a Crash Bandicoot level. There was a bowl with a hole in the bottom and a powerful suction. Tried to escape the bowl and nearly succeeded, but a large, shadowy creature emerged from the bowl and dragged me down. I heard a child cry out in despair as I fell down and woke up.

      For whatever reason I researched Gulliver's travels on my laptop (despite it being dead. I eventually realised it was a false awakening) and found a screenshot from what was allegedly a 1920s colour adaptation displaying a mayan city. Was transported there, can't remember what I did.

      Woke up again (for real, this time), did WILD. Appeared in bedroom, enlarged a hole int the wall (that isn't there in reality) and walked through. Returned to Mayan city which gradually (and unnoticed by me until after) became a more modern city. After a brief bit of fighting with my base desires, I summonned a black hole behind me, turned around and walked through. Arrived at my old college building, where someone I identified as the Godfather (from the films, apparently, although he wasn't remotely similar) greeted me.

      Can't remember much else apart from a bus chase and another false awakening, where I did most of my dream recall. As I attempted to WILD within the dream, I heard a mumbling conversation and woke up for real.
    3. Boat houses and a new word

      by , 08-10-2015 at 09:32 AM
      Did WILD, arrived outside my Nan's house. It was a bright, sunny day. I looked at the other houses lining the street and I saw that their design was vastly different to the real houses. In an instant, and without any fanfare or beautiful lights, the purpose behind this new design became apparent, as they were in fact large boats. The ground below and around them instantly became water and they sailed for a bit. I turned around and looked at my Nan's house. It too was different, but it was stationary and large and resembled a shopping centre more than anything else. I remembered my dream task and attempted to fly into space, to find a black hole. I failed and the world started fading out. I attempted to will clarity back, but failed at that too.

      I found myself in my room, and convinced I had woken up, went on my laptop. I searched (God knows why) for humans acting as animals (can't recall the exact search term). The first link I encountered was for a TV tropes page called "elephantra". I intuitively knew it was an invented word and looked at the side of my laptop to discover the charging cable was plugged in. In real life, my sister had it. (She broke her own, so, we share). My laptop was also dead in real life and this was enough to make me lucid. Sadly, I woke up (for real, this time).
    4. red watch

      by , 07-23-2013 at 09:27 AM
      fragment: I don't know much about this, other than it involved Mario kart and was surprisingly creepy.

      The dream, as many often do, started in my old high school. There was Darksiders 2 music playing in the background. Apparently, we were having some sort of reunion. During the course of the dream, I discovered that my best friend was being awfully distant and didn't seem to like me all that much. This discovery grew into a nagging doubt that gave me cause to reality check. Instead of attempting to punch the nearest DC, as per my usual dream sign (which would have gone dramatically wrong if I was actually in reality), I elected to check my watch, where I discovered that I was wearing two: my normal watch and some sort of red wristband with an LCD screen. This immediately made me lucid and, hoping to try out a new power, allowed me to attempt to phase through a wall (well, window. A window that looked uncannily like one from my grandma's house), which eventually resulted in success. I wasn't able to do much else though, as I immediately woke up.

      Or did I? I "woke up" in my room and discovered that the reason why Darksiders was playing, was because I had apparently been listening to it the night before and must have left it on. With perhaps a sliver of lucidity left, I was able to remember that I had in fact been listening to final fantasy music. Not only that, but my dream laptop actually booted up dramatically faster than my waking one. I immediately became lucid and just when I was about to decide what to do, I was woken up, for real this time, by one of Zeus' temper tantrums outside. Bloody storms.
