    1. #266 - Water ball challenge complete :)

      by , 08-23-2016 at 09:06 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      Dream
      I'm a student studying Archaeology.. I'm in a cave area that's been excavated, there's a sort of ledge which I'm sitting on to look at stone engravings. The cave is apparently on a beach where an old civilization may have once existed. The engraved stone looks like sandstone. I notice how the inscriptions depict the missing civilization of people that apparently uprooted their lives to move to a special location, except that's not what the official record is. Apparently someone else interpreted it as these people moving to spread themselves throughout the world, but I believed differently. My professor walks in, I mention my thoughts and say that it makes no sense for them to 'spread throughout the world', it was a hypothesis at best and was mentioned (without proof) that these people were the most advanced species at the time, being the first to discover fire and develop basic crafts --- they were trying to say that by spreading their genes they allowed other humans to evolve their intelligence and also discover fire.

      Eventually the dream changes, I'm walking with a couple guys to the alleged location that the missing people moved to. It seems like there's a special hot spot of energy... Apparently there's apparently some event that occurs every 10'000 years that will be happening soon (and marks the time the mysterious race of people disappeared). There's some dream backstory about how they stopped demons from invading by fighting them off at this energy hot spot. It's dark outside as we walk...

      At some point, possibly prior to heading to the energy hot spot there was an event where there was an old lady in a car. I think I was in the back seat and we could see heaps of birds suddenly migrating in the same direction. Then this old crazy lady called 'Grey Cash' by the village went hurtling by, as if blown away by the wind. This apparently meant that she could sense the same thing driving the birds, a catastrophe.

      Back to the dark night where we were walking.. We come upon a house in a forest, it resembles my parents place. I think we decide to go inside. Before going inside I spot a girl walking around, about my age. She has a spotlight and seems to be looking for something. It's not safe out here, the screeching sounds are getting louder and I have a feeling something bad will happen if she stays outside. I talk to her and she says she has been looking for the voices.... They come from no where, she says. I take her back to the beach so she's safe before I head back to the house in the forest. On the way there's a girl I meet who's called 'The Rat'. She isn't ugly or anything (quite the opposite), she's called that because of her skills in infiltration and hacking. She wears a hooded tight jumpsuit and there's something 'futuristic' about her. She takes me somewhere and the place is somehow not of this world... This part of the dream was a bit difficult to recall and even more difficult to describe.

      I'm in the house with the other 2 guys, it's dark outside and the room resembles my moms old kitchen before we renovated it. 'Grey Cash' is also there, she is apparently the mom of one of the guys I'm with. Grey Cash apparently needs to go outside and get something from the beach. Wait, what? That's like 30 minutes from here. She leaves though before I can rationalize anything. It's so dark and menacing outside though. I tell the other guys it's not safe outside, they agree. I say "I'll go out and get her. Well.... Not alone of course. That would be dumb" (knowing full well that there's only 3 of us and that the person on their own in a horror movie is usually the one to die). I'm basically trying to edge a second person into thinking that the logical thing to do is join me . I leave the room briefly to enter the lounge (can't recall why) and then return to the kitchen. Grey Cash is back and smiling as if she'd never left. What the? That's not right... My immediate thought is that something is wrong (like she's a ghost or something) and that she shouldn't be able to do that in a dream.
      In a dream? Uhh... Then I think "oh right this is a dream. Duh." I do a reality check and succeed, I'm still in the kitchen with the other people around me. I immediately try to do the water ball challenge that me and Emnition are doing. Heading over to the sink I cup my hands, planning to manipulate the already-present water droplets in the sink to coalesce into a ball. It works on the 3rd attempt. The ball of water floats between the space of my hands bobbing up and down. Grey Cash was spooking me out in the background as she still had the "Oooo I'm a ghost" dream plot going, threatening to make a nightmare out of a good dream. I turn to her and said 'Fuck off' casually, then flick my fingers at her and she went 'poof', disappearing instantly. Hot damn I'm good. I wake up, pretty happy I did the challenge

      Archaeology in Caves

      I am on a trip somewhere. We are walking around a pond. The pond seems small, but after walking around a good way along a path that encircles it, I realize that it is bigger than it looks.

      There is a man in the middle of the water of this little inlet, doing something with animals. I think he is catching crocodiles, or something. I hop on some rocks out to where he is, and the rocks become some kind of a wooden platform high in the air. At the end of the platform, I find that the man has become some kind of a professor of archaeology, and the platform is at the entrance into some deep caves.

      I don't remember all the details of this dream, which is too bad because the dream was rather neat. I go into the caves in search of some interesting artifact, and by the end of the dream I am involved in some intrigue and on a train trip.

      I took 100mg of vitamin b-6 before bed. I also took some cough medication before bed, which may or may not have had an effect.

      Job interview

      I have an event going on on the same day as a job interview. The interview is at 3:30, and I want to be sure to leave the event (archaeology dig?) by 2:30 to get there. It is just across town, but it will take about a half an hour to get to where the interview will be.

      When I arrive at the place where we are having the event, I find my grandmother baking something. Or at least mixing something in a big bowl. She tells me that what she is making required $1000 worth of maple syrup. She points to the bowl.

      "$1000 worth, and this is all I got for it," she says. I look at all the bottles next to her.

      "How many bottles did you get for $1000?" I ask.

      "Twelve," she says. I see that there is some syrup left in some of the bottles, and suggest that she add some more, but she explains that the syrup has to be specially prepared in order to be used. You can't just pour it straight from a bottle. And apparently she doesn't use all of the syrup in each bottle. She asks me to pick up a new bottle from the store though.

      I go out to do something with the other people there. One of the people is my former supervisor/co-worker. After we are working for a while, I remember that I have the job interview. I look at the clock, which I think says it is just after 2:00, but it really is after 3:00. I work for a bit longer until I realize it is about 3:30. I have 10 minutes until the interview, and I hop into the car and start driving.

      I don't exactly know where I am headed, but I have a GPS. I try setting the GPS while I am driving, but I can't see what I am doing very well so I pull over. I still can't see what I am doing very well (because it involves reading and entering words and numbers in a dream, but I don't realize that). I think that perhaps I should call the place I am going to try to set up a different interview time, or push it ahead to 4:30. I look for the telephone number of the company, but I have a hard time finding that as well.

      Light up night

      The small town that my cousin lives in is having a light up night. They were lighting up a Christmas tree, which only had one or two bulbs on it. They light up other things, but in the end only a few bulbs are lit for light up night. I am talking to my cousin about this later.
    4. Dream summaries

      Frustrating

      Well, I had typed up two dreams here, but eventually got timed out of my session. It's been a while, and I forgot that when that happens you lose everything you typed if you try to post. Now I am debating whether to type it all up again or not. Nah, here's a brief summary:

      1st dream:
      Colonists leave their little community for the outside world. People are on a boat in a small pond. I get in the boat also, and there is an end of the pond surrounded by a wall covered in liquor and lottery tickets.

      2nd dream:
      My brother and I walking along a river watching out for snakes. Then we look for indian artifacts but don't find any.

    5. Nighthog's Journal: 22th February 2011, WW2, Soviets in norway? Archaeology? Spaceship?

      by , 02-23-2011 at 12:35 AM (Nighthog's Dream Grind of the Mind)
      About in the earlier parts I was zooming in on a map or space view unto past Scandinavia going from Russia up along down the coats of Norway down to a island in southern parts of Norway.
      I recall getting a recap of the situation of sorts don't recall how it went but I knew details about the goings on to some extent.
      I knew it was WW2 and the Soviets were for some reason highly interested of this small rocky outcrop of a island here for a reason. They had sent invasion forces to try and capture the island... And basically ignoring everything else! This was the only thing in Norway they were interested in and they sent quite a task force to deal with this.
      I realise the place is currently controlled by The Germans. They are currently in the progress of invading Norway. The Soviets are taking advantage of the situation to sneak a attack to get here and get lost before anyone knows what happened.
      I'm zoomed to take a role as one of a special force unit of the Germans. We are only a small troop on the island. a dozen or such not much more. We are there to just guard the place. We have no idea why but we know the soviets are on their way in great numbers at the moment and we are deciding if we are to call for help or not. But decide not to do so by figuring out they will arrive and leave before any help gets to come.
      We decide to go and hide out little force and in a peculiar manner we do hide. We were already being attacked and the AA and other few artillery or bigger guns were just taken out. I make a call to say to call headquarters to inform they Soviets will take over the island. Nothing more.
      I gather the rest as I seem to be in command and we head out into the waters to hide underneath the waves etc. We all go lay down as invasion forces come unto the land from the waters from a small other land part connected to the mainlands. It's shallow enough so you can wade from there.
      We all lay at the bottom of this path underneath prepared to hide and see forces run past us and miss us to large extent. At last moment someone seems to stumble on top of myself and gets a little blurry as I was waking up from the struggle but when I got back. We at large were headed away and walking at the bottom of the sea. We all had strange suits and oxygen tanks etc. Almost like spacesuits.
      We are to try and make a assault on the ships behind the corner of this land as last resort. I see mines everywhere in the water and across the sea bottom. We have three submarines come by that we had at standby nearby. They are going to do the sinking.
      Two head down a sea floor trench as I follow on foot but the trench is dangerous as mines are gathered there and the two U-boats gets blown up in a trap like situation. They Soviets had moved mines to this location. I barely escaped from the trench in my suit.
      The last submarine I command to not attack and retreat. We are to regroup at another location to think of something new. (the suits had some radio like communication devices)
      They had already taken over the island and encampment. Starting their search for whatever might lay there.
      This part of story fades away...

      I'm now like a civilian on this island in modern times doing archaeology with a research group trying to figure out what the Soviets were there for on this island all those years back. They had come quickly and left quite hurriedly after some searching back to their country before anyone basically knew they were there. The few researchers are quite intrigued by this unknown story at large kept secret for very long time.
      I'm not a formal member but a visitor to the excavation just out of interest to see what they might find. I peer at their work and stuff and also go through the digs the soviets did back then. We see the remains of the dug and blasted rock here and there and also the trenches etc for defence and so on the Germans had made.
      I pull out a rock from theg ground and hit it at another rock to crack it to smaller pieces and it reveals a footprint inside. I show it to a researcher a female doctor of sorts and she can't believe what I showed. Was some footprint of a Koala or something from the tropics and really, really ancient. What's it doing all the way here up north? The island shows evidence of being in a tropical region way back. Stark contrast to the surrounding areas. It stands out as something unbelievable.
      I had to show just were I took the rock and it's evident it's from here and there just from there and not some forgery I brought along to try and con them which she at first tried to say of me doing.

      I leave them to what and walk about and see much greenery on the island. There are tropical plants growing here even today... Small bushes and such only though as it's a no tree bare rock island for most part.
      I see the arrival of my 'friends'... They come to arrive with a advanced spacecraft. I'm not local? >_>;
      We, I wasn't alone sneaked away to board safely. Something wasn't right as the ship was quickly attacked by someone or something as it came close to the island. Someone doesn't want interference it seems and are protecting the island from higher advanced societies. We barely make it out in a hurry with much crippling damage.
      We order a repair from the computer console. Auto repair bots? Teleportation repair? Either way we get repairs done on the spot we are located on and as we fly off in greater speed as engines are working properly again than just slow flight speed of a few hundred Km/h in low orbit.
      I see the repairs cost some 376 units of money.. Sadly we only had about 200 something and had to get a instant loan of 200 more from the repair company. We leave the planet and fly of into hyperspace or whatever in faster than light travel.
      Little bit of chatting and I tell them to quikly pay back the load soon as possible. You don't want to be in debt to these guys for long at all. The sooner you settle it the better.
      The pilot starts up a video game something like Supreme Commander and Star Craft 2 mixed. He makes a quick assault with the "Commander" unto the enemy base as quikly as possible. I hear how the player complains how that's unfair. This is not how you play this game. We are assholes... Either way the game gives you real money if you win a game. 250 something for this first round. I tell him to pay the debt right away after that and he does so while he starts another game.
      Seems this is a great source of easy money if you are good with it as our pilot seems to be.
      I think I take up the situation about the island again and why where we attacked.

      I can't recall any more details as it faded off to wake up soon after.

      I recall the price of the spaceship being mentioned being in the 100.000 something.
      So repairs were really cheap...
      Also we joked about how we with such a ship couldn't afford repairs without going into the red. haha.

    6. Strange College

      Well this is my first dream journal entry, I'm not going to use names, instead I will use abbreviations for privacy related reasons, so if you see just a letter or two that's someone I know in real life.

      I dreamed that I was back in college (I'm British, so college, not university, I don't really know what the American counterpart is) studying Archaeology, even though I finished college at the beginning of the summer.

      A relatively attractive blonde girl asked my name in my Archaeology class and I awkwardly showed her by pointing to it on a laminated sheet of names on the wall, for some reason I didn't ask hers. Me, E and her were the only people in the class, so we went to an early lunch where me and E saw M leave a room with a big white furry coat.

      I then had an ICT/Computer lesson in a new large room with a new bald male teacher. He was examining a popular music essay of mine and S and J were in my class as well as JF. I talked with J about Macs and PCs but ended up comparing them to rice, or something strange like that.

      We then went for lunch and I looked in my bag and found a lunchbox which I thought I had eaten in a lucid dream but still had food in (note that I haven't actually attained a lucid dream yet so I don't know where that came from). I then went out and saw JF and some of his friends and J and I acted strange and ate rice/cereal bars but got them everywhere. The new teacher sat on a radiator behinds us and I didn't notice him till they mentioned him.
