    1. WTC Prevention Sim, Snow Day

      by , 09-19-2014 at 12:51 PM (Lucid Time!)
      I am taking part in a scientific study that looks at how to prevent another 9/11 type attack. They are researching building materials that can resist aircraft crashing into them.
      The test takes place on a flat, tropical island that is mostly an open, grassy plain. There is a small base in one corner of the island and there are mock skyscraper frames, two of them nonetheless erected in the center.
      And I am to pilot two defective military UAVs into the towers, one into each tower, just like 9/11. I remember it being like some sort of video game, where I was controlling the UAV in third person. On my first pass, I actually missed, so I came around and stalled the aircraft above the tower coming down on top. The test was still conclusive and the scientists said the material seemed strong enough. They wanted me to fly another aircraft into the other tower though.
      I lined up the aircraft and gunned the engine full throttle wanting to put these materials to the test. I hit the tower hard enough that I managed to bend a few of the supports.
      The scientist appreciated that I did the second test at a different speed. He said that he had gotten some good data.

      FA. My roomie (we'll call him D) says there has been a snowstorm. Three inches of snow. All classes cancelled. I look out the window and see that he is correct.
      I drive home from college on weekends, so I may as well drive home now. D says the storm is going to continue all the way to sunday. I tell him that If I don't leave now, conditions are only going to get worse. I get my keys and start to leave.
    2. 29th July 2013 More video games

      by , 07-29-2013 at 11:47 PM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream 1:

      I was playing Quake 1 using my old mod apparently, and in coop with someone, and also some custom level that was really really huge, and mostly empty. It was some kind of work-in-progress level that was supposed to be combination of levels from a different mod, and it was mostly happening in a castle. After a while we managed to find the part of level where there were actual enemies and pickups, i've gotten The Acid Gun, The Plasma Gun and The Minigun(An actual weapons from the mod), then after an elevator there was a room with scrag type enemies. Then later there was some area with lava and a bridge, guarded by some weird enemy that had very effective defense versus projectile attacks.
      Then after going through teleporter, camera switched top-down and started looking more like Doom, there was very weird platforming segment with teleporter mazes and weird navigation. But soon we have reached the top of the area, where camera switched back to first person and where we had to deal with some kind of upgraded mancubuses. Then after another portal there was huge arena and i was playing coop with SilentEternity now. We had to fight through horde of various Doom enemies, some were custom, and also at least four cyberdemons.

      Dream 2(fragments):

      I was playing some game where i had to control some kind of cyborg and there were two more on my side, controlled by AI. We had to go through some indoors complex with acidic lakes to fight enemy team, which consisted of three cyborgs as well, we easily won because AI was not really good at it.

      Dream 3(fragments):

      I was playing another game, in which i had to search through some amusement park for something, there were various characters i talked to, but eventually some enemy helicopters arrived and some ally helicopters, i helped destroying enemy helicopters with some kind of energy cannon then i got into one and we flied to different area, which was some dark city. There i with group of some soldiers had to set up defense and destroy some enemy attack waves.
    3. 25th May 2013 Fragments

      by , 05-25-2013 at 07:00 AM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream recall from today's naps.

      Dream 1(fragments):

      I was playing some video game and there was location that was like a maze with metallic spaceship/base-like walls. Then there was cutscene of talking with somebody

      Dream 2(fragment):

      There was something happening in the farmland kinda place and later i was on PC and i was editing one of the maps from AI War, i was changing connections between a few planets. Then there was some battle where my team had to defend the place against AI, but it was in completely different game.
    4. 13th May 2013 Genre switching video game, Base defense

      by , 05-13-2013 at 08:19 PM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      I was playing some RTS game and my base was in the center of the map, there were two groups of enemies who had bases around the map, the weaker orange-colored mutants and more stronger white bases. I had made a group of units and was destroying orange bases with them easily, i was comparing those enemies to scavengers from warzone 2100. Then i had long battle versus white bases because they got some forces and defenses prepared while i was dealing with orange, but eventually i won.
      Then the game switched to be an FPS and i was chasing some really overpowered enemy through various landscapes, he kept spawning waves of other enemies that i had to deal with and at one point i was going through some blue maze-ish area.
      Later game switched to be an RTS again and i had limited time to construct a base in strategic area with one entrance. I had to build unit facilities in the specific places and also i did built alot of walls and defenses. I massed more units and then enemy forces came and there was an battle. I barely managed to keep the area but then that overpowered dude came and destroyed everything.
      Game switched back to be FPS again and i was chasing the dude, at one point lots of enemies came from around one corner and i had a bit of problem with that, but i did defeated them eventually.
    5. 20th Apr 2013 Various video games, Search for mutants

      by , 04-20-2013 at 10:19 PM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream 1:

      I was in some kind of survival game with team. We built a base using some kind of big brown cargo containers and after that we were attacked by some enemies. Containers were not very good and soon we started getting holes in our defenses, but then we got upgrades going and enemies couldn't pass them anymore, after few upgrades the containers turned into something more of concrete blocks and walls. We also got some automatic turrets set up.
      After that we went to do some kind of mission and game turned into something like Spiral Knights, we were progressing through some kind of dungeon and enemies there were more advanced and hard. We had a bit of problems and had to skip through a few enemy groups. I recall one of advanced enemies being purple slime of some kind that had an 'arm' formation.
      After we were done with that we were back to base and i was checking some GTA-like games... in the game? Though most of them were really glitchy and were crashing and/or erroring soon after the launch. One of the versions was like 3D version of GTA 2, but also every wall was black colored like if texture was missing and everyone was an enemy, there were no neutral people. It crashed after some time too. Soon the dream ended.

      Dream 2:

      I was in some kind of zoo and there was a problem where mutants(?) were disappearing from cages, like somebody was stealing them. I was searching through a few places for clues and i had some special powers, ones that i can recall being ability to zoom in view, and other being some attacking ability related to electricity.
      At one point i was overlooking forest from some balcony and there were bandits that i had to avoid or deal with. Later i was visiting some kind of compound building, there were some kids which were cooking food and there was a character which looked really similar to Hinata from Naruto anime. After eating some food(which was delicious) there, and avoiding some more bandits, i got somewhere else, probably into the place where someone was hiding stolen mutants, but the cages were empty, i was too late.
      Then dream randomly skipped to the scene where the main character of Syphon Filter game gets killed with an headshot in some tunnel. And then dream ended.
    6. 04/01/13 Immortal Fire

      by , 04-04-2013 at 12:05 AM (New Dream Adventures of Raven Knight)

      Immortal Fire Shield
      I am in my room, sitting on my bed. I am surrounded by Templars. There are pulsing energy waves coming off of them, I am under constant attack from the Templars. I look around me at the Templars, thinking I want them to go away from me. I drop an immortal fire spell right there in my room, a wall of fire extended from me and blasted all the Templars in the area. I then formed the energy from the flames into a shield to keep the Templars away.

      I wondered how long that might work for, or if it would work at all. I remembered that I had also said I would do the same thing to clear Templars away from Nomad. I focus on opening a portal to find Nomad. The portal opens and I go through. On the other side I find Nomad is surrounded by Templars. I go over to Nomad and drop an immortal fire right there, blasting away more Templars. I formed the energy into a shield around Nomad to keep the Templars away. I looked at the shield, which looked like a sphere of flames. Nomad looks at the shield and seems pleased with it. I tell him we can get on with our normal healings… so we go to the balancing pools on the moon. In the pools I focus on healing Nomad's foot issues. Winter is also there, relaxing in the warm waters. I focus healing energy through her, directed at easing her fibromyalgia. After that is done Nomad opens a portal to go see his friend, where I focus some more healing energy through him. I can feel the effects of using so much healing energy, and it feels good. I am in a very good place as everything around me fades to black and I woke.
    7. 01/20/12: Football in Oblivion

      by , 01-21-2012 at 04:11 AM (New Dream Adventures of Raven Knight)

      AFC Championship Football Game
      I am in my own house, and I am watching television. I am in my entertainment room where I have my television and game systems. There is a football game on, it is the AFC championship game between the Baltimore Ravens and the New England Patriots. The Ravens are ahead at the moment, with a score of 14 to 0. I hear my mom and my brother in the other room, also watching the game. I am in my room because I know John, my brother, is rooting for the other team. I don't really care, but I'd rather cheer for the Ravens in peace. I look back at the game and I see the score has changed… ridiculously changed… it is now 76 to 14 in favor of the Ravens. Wtf? The score couldn't have changed that much that fast… I wonder if John and my mother noticed that. I head to the other room and see the score is now 117 to 24 in favor of the Ravens. John is throwing stuff at the television. I say the scoreboards at the game must be broken… there's no way that could be the real score…

      Waves of Oblivion
      I am in a small town that looks like something out of an RPG such as Oblivion. Everything is in a bit of chaos, people are running for cover and hiding in the various buildings. Everyone is in a blind panic. I head towards the front gates to see what is going on. There are guards at the front, they tell me to get inside with the other civilians. I ask what is going on, the guard says there are demons pouring from the gate, now get to shelter. I decide I can help, so I head out of the gate, ignoring the guard yelling after me. The captain of the guards also tells me to go to shelter, I tell him I'm going to help. He laughs in my face and says the day a woman can hold her own in a fight is the day he retires. I ignore him and head towards the main force of demons.

      The gate they're pouring from is an Oblivion gate. There are so many of them. I charge right into the group, forming sword and armor from Witchblade. I cut through a couple, jump over more, and finally I get to the gate. I go through the gate and see there are more demons pouring on that side of the gate. There seem to be an infinite number of them. I see the main tower in the area, that must be where the sigil stone is. I head straight for it, taking flight to get there quicker. Forget going through the tower… I fly straight to the top and down through an opening in the ceiling. There's the sigil stone… I grab the stone, thus collapsing the Oblivion gate.

      I am now standing in the ruins of the Oblivion gate. There are still some demons present on this side, but the army defending the town are quickly dealing with the remaining demons. Some of the demons disappear through small portals when they see there are no more reinforcements coming for them. I see the captain of the guards not far away, and I go over to him. He says I am lucky that gate closed or I would be dead. A soldier tells him that I am actually the one who went into the gate and closed it. I ask the captain if he will be retiring now… he just looks stunned.
    8. top-hat future; co-worker's reviews

      by , 01-06-2012 at 02:16 PM
      Good morning, everybody.

      Dream #1

      Something about the future. All I see now is a blur of images -- like a 1980s music video montage of photos going in really fast step-animation -- or like old laserdisc images when you'd speed them up too fast.

      There were two men who looked alike and had a very similar name, possibly something like Elkanah or Keele. One of the men would help me. The other one basically couldn't do anything for me, but would act like he was important to my life, so that I'd think he was the one to help me, and I'd miss the other one. I was already talking to one of the men.

      The men both looked kind of like W.C. Fields -- the old style suit, top-hat, and kind of heavy, chubby, white face. They probably even spoke like W.C. Fields -- with the sing-songy, but gruff, salesman-like pitch.

      Dream #2

      I was standing in some space like an art gallery or a really nice cafe. There were a lot of people there, all really well-off, all dressed really nice.

      I stood in a group of four or five people. I'm pretty sure I was myself. But the people all around me were older. We all apparently worked for some company that did movie reviews. A couple of women remarked mockingly about the reviews done by one of my old co-workers, DE.

      As she was making the comments, DE walked up from behind me, then past me on my left. He walked to the front of the room and stood in the doorway, talking with another crowd of people. This crowd of people may have been more like young people -- maybe mostly young women.

      I kind of agreed with the women in my circle who said that DE made some bad reviews. I didn't think he was very good. But I also liked DE, so I wanted to stand up for him. Plus, I felt bad that he'd overheard the women talking bad about him as he walked past. And he'd seen me listening. So I had to vindicate myself.

      I made some kind of mild assertion to the women, kind of incorporating whatever arguments they'd used against DE, and accepting them, but also adding something that I liked about DE.

      I was now in a hotel room. The hotel room was pretty big, but kind of dingy. There was more than enough space for two big beds.

      There might have been a desk on the wall past the foot of the beds, in the space between the two beds. I also think there were two windows on the same wall. The windows had -- I think -- wood-slatted blinds. The light in the room was incandescent, but horrendously bright, making everything seem even cheaper and dingier.

      There was a small, almost cubicle-like space just in front of the bathroom. It was like an L-bracket of a wall, that went up about two and a half meters, so, about one and a half meters short of the ceiling. There was a little desk there, too, with a phone on it.

      I was standing back in this space, on the phone. Some co-worker of mine was going back and forth into and out of the bathroom. He was white, with curly, black hair and a little bit of stubble on his face. He may have been arranging his tie.

      I don't know what I was waiting on the phone for. But it may have had something to do with my co-worker DE. My other co-worker, while rushing into and out of the bathroom, may have been complaining, in a kind of prissy way, about DE always doing stuff like this.

      Now I was in the bathroom, and DE was on the phone. He was talking either to his brother or one of his really close fraternity brothers. He said something like, "Yeah, and you were right about this hotel. We got it really close to that restaurant you were talking about."

      I knew that DE's friend had told DE some sort of outrageous story about this restaurant. DE's friend had, at this restaurant, either seen all kinds of really hot girls, or had some monstrosity of a meal combination, or had done something really unbelievable and gotten in trouble. DE was now hoping to have the same experience.
    9. Processing Practice: Jealousy Layered over Sadness

      by , 04-19-2011 at 06:52 PM

      FFEDCIDD Practice
      FFEDCIDD = Face, Feel, Expand, Dissipate, Coalesce, Integrate, Decide, Do

      Jealousy roaring up. Expanded about a foot from my body. specks of contained heat (but not touchable?) It was like an insulation, a bit spongy. Jealousy felt bizarre - that might have been the first time I’ve really let myself feel it. I have memories of stuffing it down because it was unattractive.

      In love with my fan-157116_69886810_3202825.jpg
      A loose approximation
      (more like just a pretty thing that had similar colors)
      by fleicap

      Under it a sadness centered in my gut, heart, and throat. The sadness (or maybe my mental reflections on it) brought me to memories of soothing myself as a child by crying into a mirror alone. I feel a lot of resistance to posting that little intimate detail, so maybe forcing myself is the way to go. Gah, I’m not always this serious, an insecure voice inside me is sharply whining and pushing.

    10. I assist an attacker to score a goal

      by , 04-13-2011 at 07:31 AM (Percy's Void of Thoughts)
      I assist an attacker to score a goal (Non-lucid)


      I was in a concrete soccer field. It looked like more as the patio of a school. I was playing soccer, but instead in the goalkeeper position I used to play years ago, I was playing in defense. For some reason, there was another goal keeper so I played defense.

      I grabbed the ball, but an attacker from the other team took the ball from my feet. This player was like 8 fee tall. Fortunately, he did not score and the ball bounced back to me.

      He ran towards me until I passed the ball to a team mate on the far right side. We both ran to the other's team goal and suddenly, I had the ball again. When we were about to get to the other's team goal, I passed the ball to an attacker, who scored a goal.

      I felt good and excited.
    11. 12/10/2010 - "The Mighty Pen"

      by , 12-15-2010 at 09:58 PM (Oneironaut Zero: Dreamwalker Chronicles)
      "The Mighty Pen"

      I was really broken up about a death in my family. I have a strong feeling that it was my mom, but I'm not exactly sure. My dad was actually alive, and in this dream with me, though my mom was nowhere to be found. Whatever the case, I was in my old house (Canterbury) and crying about it. Trying to get me to snap out of mourning, my dad came into my room to talk to me. I just wanted him to leave me alone. There was really nothing that he was able to say, to make the pain go away. And, in his usual way, his cold words did more to agrivate me than they did to help rid me of my emotions. Finally, fed up, I said something that got him to piss off. I can't remember what it was, though.

      He left the room, and went to the bathroom down the hall. Alone with my thoughts for another minute or so, I eventually began to clear my head. It was then that I heard my alarm chirp, as if someone had just walked into the house, unannounced. (Funny thing is, we didn't have the alarm, back at that house. The only alarm we've ever had is the one installed in the house I live in now. I didn't even think of this as strange, in the dream.) Whomever it was, they made no effort to let us know that they were here, and unless they were sitting in the living room, by themselves, they were coming down the hall toward me room. I also knew that we had hollow floors, so if they were coming down the hallway, they were purposefully trying not to make any noise. Quickly, I looked around for a weapon. The only thing that was within arms reach was a pair of ink pens on my desk. Without a second thought, I grabbed them up, holding them - one in each hand - in downward positions, to make them effective stabbing weapons. Waiting patiently at my room door, I took a fighting stance, anxiously poised and ready for the intruder to make his appearance at my doorway. A hand appeared, and I lunged. Stabbing the first pencil out toward my target, I drew it back when I noticed a gorgeous young girl, with light-brown skin and cornrows, standing in front of me. Startled, she said "It's just me," throwing her hands up and staring at the uncapped pen aimed at her throat.

      Apparently, her and I were friends (though I have no idea if she's actually someone that I know in waking life). She told me that she knew about what had happened to my family member, and she just really wanted to hang around and cheer me up. I actually wasn't in the mood for 'cheering up,' and I believe I was going to be leaving the house soon, so I kindly walked her back out the front door. We had a short conversation on the porch, and I kept calling her "Jessica." Finally, after having put up for quite some time - and being really classy about it - she just gave me a friendly smirk and said "It's Vanessa." I felt really bad for getting her name wrong, and even worse for asking her to leave, when she just wanted to try to lift my spirits. I knew I wasn't able to hang out at the time, though. After spending a few seconds with her, I went back inside. I remember doing something with the alarm keypad, but I don't believe I armed it.

      (After this dream, I woke up to the sound of the real house alarm going off. I came to find out that my mom had been in the living room, with the alarm company, and they were testing it for some kind of trouble. It seems all of their beeping and fooling with the system had worked its way into my dream.)
