• Lucid Dreaming - Dream Views

    View RSS Feed


    Dreams, notes, and other experiments to assist in achieving high-quality lucid dreams on a regular basis.

    Reality Check (RC): Action used to evaluate if one is dreaming. Common methods include plugging the nose and testing whether it can be breathed through, as well as inspecting one's hands for irregularities compared to waking reality.

    Memory Lapse (...): Where memory ends for a given stream of consciousness. For example, going to sleep in a dream and waking up in the dream later with no recollection of the sleep.

    Dream Initiated Lucid Dream (DILD): Lucid dreaming type that originates from the dreamer regaining awareness from within a dream.

    Wake Initiated Lucid Dream (WILD): Lucid dreaming type that originates from the dreamer maintaining awareness from waking near-directly into a dream.

    Wake Back To Bed (WBTB): Sleep cycle interruption technique used to achieve lucid dreams.

    Blue: Denotes regular non-lucid dream recall.

    Purple: Denotes lucid dream recall (formerly Orange).

      Climbing to Stability:

      I'm at the canal where I exercised a lot earlier this year. It's the day time.
      I'm with my girlfriend and we are rising into the air.
      I'm holding a rope, and I indirectly perceive that she is holding onto me, or is with me in some other way.
      When I will it, a balloon floating up above inflates, which pulls the rope upward higher into the sky.
      My girlfriend and I ascend higher and higher into the sky, with the rope being only thing keeping the both of us from falling.
      I have an expectation that when we reach a certain height, a support will form so that we can be safe.
      Later I'm still with my girlfriend, but now we are more obviously on a date.
      We are at a sort of marketplace with indoor and outdoor sections.
      There is a central register desk with some clothes and other merchandise set-up around it.
      This feels sort of like a foreign country, with smaller roads and streets.
      I'm following her and I see that her hair is longer than it normally is.
      I'm now standing in my Great-Grandma's condo, looking at a picture of my girlfriend from the back.
      The visual is the same, with the longer hair. Essentially a screenshot. There is a second picture of her starting to turn around and look at the camera.
      I realize that my Great-Grandma has recently died (within the dream's story, not really) and I am there to help clean up the condo.
      I go to her bedroom and see that my brother and sister are there watching something on her old small TV. My brother is on a futon, and my sister is on a second bed.
      My Great-Grandma's bed is empty, but I hesitate to get on it because it looks dusty. Plus, the idea that she may have recently died in it spooks me.
      I sit on the second bed next to my sister and join the group.
      My sister asks if we can reorient the bed so that it is in line with the TV, rather than the side. I tell her "I sleep on my side anyway, so it works out."
      At some point later at the condo, I put on a VR headset.
      I'm now in an ocean inspired by the Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker, with the cell shaded deep blue colors.
      This was some sort of MMO, with many other players occupying the ocean.
      I'm in a boat and controlling the world with my voice.
      I ask for an engine to be on the back of my boat, and it happens. My speed increases and the whine of the device whirs to life.
      I decide that I want to be funny, so I ask for the One-Piece straw hat to be on my head. I find a mirror-like surface to look, and it indeed has appeared.
      I pilot the boat over to a group of people and zoom past, while doing a poor King of the Hill accent "dang-ol-motor-boat-I-tell-you-hwat!"
      Eventually I reach what looks like a large garage door on the edge of the ocean.
      It's currently up, so I go beyond it. At some point I lose my boat behind it and get put back on the Ocean side, with the door now down.
      I'm not concerned about losing the boat, but I spy an island on the horizon that I want to swim to.

      Recorded after 7.5hrs of sleep.

      Fall Town:

      I'm the new kid in a town. It's very orange with a fall theme. Falling orange leaves cover my view.
      There are rivers flowing alongside the streets, and I'm currently walking alongside one, following it to the end.
      I reach the end, and see that the road-rivers all feed into a larger river that people are tubing down. It looks really fun.
      I'm on a date with a ginger girl, but it isn't going well. She is upset about something.
      Later we have found an underground sewer area and we are exploring down there.
      It opens up to a labyrinth-like dungeon. There are narrow rooms and turns.
      We are being chased by tough-strong lizard men.
      I'm captured and I can't move. There is some sort of candy I've found and I try to use it against them.
      But the candy is used to control people, and it backfires.


      I'm in a large open polygonal space. It feels sort of like Tron aesthetically. It's a hub.
      There is a police-officer getting ready to have his first day in 'the maze'.


      I'm in a secret upper-alcove area with my Dad. It's similar to an attic, and has a bunch of computer screens giving off blue lights.
      My Dad talks to the other people there, and they decide that it is OK to reveal their plans to me.
      They give me a newspaper and I read about a bunch of conspiracy topics the turned out to be true.


      I'm working at the Krusty Krab, I might have been Squidward.
      I'm about to close the restaurant for the day. I need two people with two keys to activate the security system.
      The other person there is resigning, so I call for Mr. Krabs.
      He comes over, but tells me that he is also resigning.

      The DILD Fanclub:

      I'm in a study-room, resembling one from my college years.
      There is a girl with us who has pink hair. She looks like Ramona Flowers from Scott Pilgrim.
      Within the story of the dream I fall for this girl hard.
      I'm in a place similar to a Vison-Works glasses store.
      There is some sort of zombie-game that the class is to play as a group.
      The game is a 2D-sidescroller, where the group teams up to fight the zombies.
      Glasses are required to play the game, but since I don't have them, I'm concerned that I'll cause an issue.
      I go to the front desk and try to get a prescription.
      I return to the Vison-Works later to see if my prescription is ready, but it is dark. Probably closed.
      I'm with my friend D at something like a dungeons & dragons night at his childhood home's basement.
      Danny from Game Grumps is sitting nearby, and I ask him if he was born in 1989. He replies with something about 90's kids.
      I notice D has some software open on his PC. It's an old-style big grey monitor from the 2000s or earlier.
      The software is showing a home-page for a fan club. There are dollar values for money to donate to him, listed into themed tiers.
      One of the tiers is 'pancankes' and shows a stack with some butter on it.
      It's labeled the 'DILD' fan club, which my brain does not connect as dream initiated lucid dream.
      Later we are outside and it is so rainy that we can barely see a few feet in front of us.
      Despite not being able to see, I get the impression that we are in a futuristic city area with tall skyscrapers.
      D is supposed to fly me somewhere. He can fly freely, and I need to hold onto him to fly.
      I tell him that the raindrops will feel like bullets if we try to fly fast.

    4. Night of Friday 11/17/23 (DILD)

      The Bulldog:

      I'm sitting on a patio chair looking out to a sunrise. I'm high up, a few stories above the ground.
      The patio is made of large wood pieces, similar in style to Frontier Land from Disneyland. Within the lore of the dream, we had just built it (my Dad, sister, and I).
      I looked at my left hand and noticed that it had three fingers, and I looked at my right. It had four.

      I become lucid. The very next thought is that I want to learn more about my dreamworld, to serve me better later.
      So I decide to keep looking at my hands. They keep changing in finger count wildly, not fast or as if morphing, more like my brain kept trying to convince me that they had 'always been' said count.
      It was more like my perception was in flux than the actual visuals. Tough to describe.
      This activity doubles down on the fact that I truly am dreaming.

      I decide to get up and look around. I see a man down below in a pool, he's singing on a platform in the middle.
      Also, across the way there is another man singing. I listen to them for a while, but I can't recall the tune now.
      I noticed a bulldog down by my heel. I feel a massively comforting presence. I don't recognize this dog but I feel the comfort anyway.
      He is wearing some sort of skin(or should I say fur) tight dog-shirt.
      I remember that I should be stabilizing the dream, so I run my hands across the wood railing a bit.
      I notice that the patio is missing some pieces, and get concerned about the stability of the structure.
      I decide to go the the side of the house, and once I turn the corner, it represents the side of the house I'm living in now.

      The bull-dog is sitting in front of the gate that leads to the front yard. I go up to him and start to pet him.
      "Are you a bulldog?" I ask.
      "Yes, I am!" the bulldog replied with a British accent.
      "Can you tell more more about you so that I can find you in my world?" I ask.
      "Ohhh you shouldn't do that...because I have...my issue." the bulldog replies ominously.
      I notice he is drooling a bit.
      "Well, what is the issue?"
      "I....tend to wet the bed." the bulldog admits with some shame in his voice.
      I start to comfort the bulldog, but then I begin to lose lucidity.
      Instead, I start telling the bulldog a story of a recurring dream. It's about not making finals for marching band back in high-school.
      I try to recall the name of the girl who was our drum major who broke the news, but I can't remember her name (just her face).
      This isn't actually a recurring dream.
      An Asian girl appears behind him as if in response to the story, but she doesn't resemble anybody from it.
      At this point I seem to get my bearings, and I start to narrate what has happened up to now, to the bulldog.

      "So I've spent a lot of time in this dream letting things flow on their own, observing, doing RCs, keeping it low-key. Do you think it is OK if I try some dream control now?" I ask the bulldog.
      "Yes, that seems reasonable." the bulldog replies matter of factly.
      I walk forward and open the gate leading to the front yard.
      It's night-time over here.
      I remember that I want to try the teleport-sprint from another dream, so I position myself on the street with plenty of runway space in front of me.
      But there is a festival happening on the street. Lots of people. This prevents me from having space.
      I get the impression that the dream characters are not fans of what I am about to try, slightly hostile.
      They don't stop me when I went to find a new position, but one guy did bump me as I passed.
      I don't visualize a particular place. I break out into a sprint with the night-road in front of me and close my eyes.
      I feel my body shake, similar to the first time having a WILD transition. Feels like going through a wormhole.
      When I open my eyes, I see blackness. I assume I have woken up.

      I'm back on the patio with the sunrise, but this time I think I am awake.
      "Wow! What a cool lucid dream, I'd better go record it before I forget!" I think to myself.
      I enter the house through a doorwall and go to a computer.
      This home does not resemble one I have lived in.
      The computer has three or four monitors all setup, and looks super cool.
      Dream-me has a program setup that will record my dreams as audio, and then auto-tune them.
      So I narrate the previous dream as it happened in its entirety.
      I mess up the recording so I have to start and stop a few times.
      As I recorded it, the computer generated an animated movie, with the audio, as a musical.
      The graphics resembled Final Fantasy VII: Remake's.
      I'm invested in making the video good.
      I'm back in my actual bed. My girlfriend is by me, and so is a dog. It may have been a german-shepherd.
      Strangely, my sister is at the foot of the bed.
      We're awake because we are concerned that there is an intruder in the house.
      I felt safe, because the dog would be able to alert us if there was a problem.
      My girlfriend tells me I should give my sister the larger pillow, and I tell her that she is already asleep so there is no point.
      I reflect that the dog with us is not giving me an allergic reaction, so maybe I can have a dog after all.
      I'm back at my childhood home, and I'm talking about the intruder with my Dad.
      I look at the thermostat, and it reads '60 degrees'. I think it is low, but my Dad tells me that this is how it has to be.
      I look over to the living room and see my Mom playing a video game. She's losing so she calls me over to help and I do.

      Night Beer:

      I'm at a carnival at night, similar to events that take place at a lake near where I live now.
      Sort of like Fall Fest. I have brewed a dark beer, and it is going up for competition.
      There is a large tent with yard games setup where the competition is to take place.
      I think the tots may have been there.

      Recorded at 7:05AM.

      Chainsaw Arm:

      I'm in a large space with my brother. It's a nice home with white carpeting, white walls. Not dissimilar to one of my Grandma P's homes.
      We're working to place cushions on top of chains, but there is something tricky about the process.
      My brother understands it, but he won't help me. I get frustrated and attack him.
      He ends up hitting the chandelier with a chair on accident.
      I keep fighting, but my right arm is getting weaker. I notice there is now a chainsaw where my right arm should be, but it is heavy.
      I'm losing the battle.

      My girlfriend wakes me up because I was making noise in my sleep.

      Recorded at 3:45AM.

      Missed Signals:

      I'm outside my house on the sidewalk.
      There is a man that claims he has proof that I shot someone.
      The scene transitions, and I'm now in a restaurant that resembles Bennigan's.
      I'm conflicted about whether I actually hurt someone or not, I may have been drunk or high.
      There is a work-meeting happening at a table nearby. They are together for a 5-year anniversary. My boss is there.
      My dad is defending me against the murder accusations.
      I wonder (while dreaming) what problem my brain is working through, or what inspired this dream.
      But I don't become lucid.


      I'm at a game night in a large home. We might have been playing hide and seek.
      HM from the tots may have been on my team.


      I'm on a grassy hill with someone and it's a bit chilly outside.
      We're inspecting the hill for evidence of a person living in it.
      We find an air-pipe and water-line device nearby.


      There is a battle with a queen-like figure.
      It took place in a 2D-platformer game style.

      Went to bed around 10:30PM.

      Smashing Birthday:

      I'm at my friend JM's birthday party. There is a long table setup in a restaurant.
      The restaurant resembles one we were at during festivities from my girlfriend's sisters wedding.
      I'm working on a tapestry that is inspired by Super Smash Bros as a gift for JM.
      I go to sit at an open spot next to his left, but he tells me it is for his girlfriend BH.
      The person on the right of JM scootches over to make room so that I can sit on JM's right.

      New Old Car:

      I'm driving through a nice looking community in a new car.
      The car is older, but it is well kept. It smells like leather too.
      There are clean-looking wood accents on the doors and console.
      I'm driving to a parking garage for the community.
      I'm in a main receiving area for the community. It resembles the lobby of a fancy hotel.
      It is a large open space with a desk at the far end in front of me.
      This place resembles the facility a character was infiltrating from the book, Neuromancer.
      Later I'm leaving the parking structure and I wonder if the older car has high mileage.
      I realize that I never checked it before buying it.
      I start to wonder if I actually got a good deal or not.
      I notice some smudges on the frontside passenger door's wood trim and I rub at them with my finger.
      It mostly comes off.

      Both recorded at 7:16AM.

      247 words for the night.

      This dream with the receiving area is interesting. I was recently wondering whether locations I visualize while reading would manifest in dreams or not.
      The facility location indeed has, and while the theme and tone of the situation is entirely different from the book, it is still noteworthy.

      Berries with the Tots:

      I'm with JM and JV from the Tots group. We're at a store modeled after the Pokémon Centers from various Pokémon games.
      There is a deli nearby in the same store selling lunchmeat, as well as Pokémon merchandise lining shelves on the walls.
      I'm looking at some berries, and the perspective changes such that I'm using a menu to scroll sideways through the different berry options.
      There are arrows up and down to change the quantity of berries to buy. There is a price that dynamically updates as well.

      Recorded at 5AM.

      Kitten in the Kitchen:

      I'm at a house. I get the impression it is a new thing, as in somebody has just bought it or started a rental arrangement.
      There is a front door area with a kitchen on the left. There is a mudroom type area on the right. The layout is vaguely similar to my parents' old home in northern Michigan.
      I'm standing in the kitchen near a plate with some food on it. There is a small kitten near the plate, attracted to the food.
      The kitten is black and longhaired, similar to how one of my cats from childhood, Oreo, used to look.
      I pickup the kitten to show it to my girlfriend who is in the kitchen nearby.
      I get the impression the situation is a 'meet the parents' type scenario.
      I'm with my Grandma P in a bedroom area from the same house.
      She seems to be sharpening chopsticks to resell as a business.

      Recorded at 6:45AM.

      254 words for the night.

      Went to bed at 10:30PM.

      Teleport Sprints:
      I'm in a highschool hallway that reminds me of one from the show, Stranger Things.
      HM is there and she has an umbrella. We have a brief conversation about some other function the umbrella has and she leaves.
      She's going to catch a bus, and I'm late for that bus. I try to catch up but I can't.
      I'm leaving JM's house after a game-night, but my car isn't around. I remember that I teleported here.
      I walk into the road and find a long stretch of open space.
      I break into a sprint and close my eyes. It reminds me of what Ness does in the intro to Super Smash Bros Melee.
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXs4-M-ZiOg (at 1:02).
      When I open them, I've teleported to my childhood home.
      My friends are inside and they have used the kitchen chairs to make a fort.
      At one point a drink gets knocked into JM's face.
      I'm with my Dad and my Mom driving on a mountain road. Dad is driving and Mom is in the front passenger seat.
      There is a lake far down below us, and my Dad gets too close to the railing.
      We go over the edge. We are all panicking less than we should be as we go into freefall.
      I start to think about how I can survive. I think about undoing my seatbelt so that I don't get stuck underwater, or opening a door so that the water pressure doesn't hold them all shut.
      We impact the water and it isn't that bad. Turns out the water was not as deep as it looked.
      The car careens forward and then we do hit a larger body of water.
      I wonder if I can teleport my Mom away, but then I realize that I need a runway to do so.
      I'm at work with GO and CP. We are on the 2nd floor of our building, but it looks like it has elements of my middle school bandroom.
      There is a woodshop water fountain (the same one that was in the bandroom) and GO gets water in his face from mis-operating it.
      Another DC tells me "the woman is from the Maw, the Underworld".

      Recorded at 6:30AM.

      372 words for the night.

      Parts of these dreams felt semi-lucid. As in, I was using dream control to address situations that I thought presented danger.
      I'm excited that my mind gave me a way to teleport. Can't wait to try the teleport sprint in my next true lucid dream

      Went to bed around 12:00AM.

      Social Learning:
      My girlfriend and I are at a show. Reminds me of where I saw a comedian recently.
      We were seeing Game Grumps live.
      I see Arin sarcastically running through the crowd giving people high-fives and think how stupid those people are for being excited.
      But then he comes my way and I put my arms up, and I touch his finger. I get super excited, and think I get it now.
      At some point during the show the seating is gone and there are people sitting on the ground, with some tents set up at several points.
      My girlfriend and I tried to sit together but we ended up separated due to some social convention.
      She is further back, due to said social pressure.
      Later we are in an upper level area, maybe it was some sort of after party.
      It vaguely reminds me of my Grandma M's patio/garden.
      E from highschool marching band is there, and she looks older than I remember her.
      There is a documentary about WW2 on, and she gets visibly uncomfortable because she is German.
      The documentary is talking about how the war is over, but beware because evil tends to stick around.
      I can recall dropping my headphones several times and then trying to pick them up, but then they were inside the documentary and I couldn't.
      They are the white Bose NC700s that I no longer use.
      At some point the dream has transitioned into more of a comic-book theme.
      Captain Marvel is there, but he is a guy.
      We are on a spaceship.
      Captain Marvel changes into Superman, and teleports away.
      Somebody else explains that he was teleported away because he didn't have a real super power.
      I argue with this person and tell him that super-strength is definitely a super-power.
      My landlord is present and for some reason I need to change clothes in front of him.
      I'm hesitant, but he tells me I have done it before and it isn't a big deal.

      Recorded at 7:03AM.

      Slime Time:
      I'm in a first person shooter game, where my weapons is my hand throwing green slimeballs.
      The graphics are similar to that of Psychonauts 2.
      I can recall thinking at the time that the person playing should aim a bit lower that they want the ball to land.
      I'm now watching somebody else play the game.
      The player is trying to hit green slime monsters with the slimeball.
      The player makes the adjustment I am thinking about and starts to land hits.

      Recorded at 7:09AM.

      420 words for the night.

      Messy Awakenings:
      I have a false awakening on my couch (where I currently was sleeping in waking life).
      My uncle J is sleeping nearby. My dad is there and tells me that I should move to the bed so I don't hurt in the morning.
      I heed the advice and head to my bed. When I entered the room, my sister is in my bed and there are some blankets and pillows on the floor.
      The room is larger than I recall in waking memory but I don't pick up on the inconsistency at the time.
      So as not to disturb my sister, I lie down on the floor and go to sleep.
      While I don't recall exactly, I think this is where I must have reality checked and became lucid, because I realized that I had just gone to sleep, so I should reality check.

      I'm now lucid in this larger version of my bedroom. My first thought is to take a deep breath and try to stabilize the dream.
      But I'm not lucid enough to follow through and start engaging the senses. I only get through the deep breath.
      While I do start to think about the dream being 'biological virtual reality', I don't truly engage with the question deeply.
      I see a window at the end of the room and remember that I want to go to a new landscape.
      I recall the blink-and-snap method for traveling from a Daniel Love video.
      I close my eyes, imagine a grassy forest environment, and snap my fingers.
      The ground underneath me has transformed into AstroTurf, but no forest.
      I lose lucidity shortly after this.

      Sometime later, I've regained lucidity and I'm with a girl that I know is my sister's friend. We're at my Grandma's condo.

      Spoiler for Spicy Content:

      When the activities are over, I consider whether I actually did finish in waking life.
      I'm concerned about that, but it also transfers to the dream. I hurriedly try to make my way to a bathroom to inspect myself.
      I'm now at the top of the stairs at my grandma's current condo. As I head down the stairs, it makes a lot of noise to my dismay.
      But luckily it doesn't alert anyone.
      I find a side door that I think leads to the bathroom.
      There is an in-between passage that has another set of doors past it. There is a black poodle dog in here.
      My sister is hot on my heels, and she chases me into the room.
      But I hide behind the door as it opens (that's a classic trick of mine) and she doesn't find me. The dog gets a bit crunched as the door opens, but it doesn't mind.
      After this I sneak my way to the bathroom to inspect, but I lose lucidity along the way.

      War Games:
      I'm in a war. In the moment, it felt like a training camp, but later the dream treated it as if it had been actual combat.
      I'm with a group of people, perhaps a platoon. The area is sandy and surrounded by wooden walls on all sides.
      We're running forward trying to reach cover. The cover is on the left, and there is an enemy soldier sitting on a chair on the right.
      I can't recall, but I may have attempted to shoot the soldier in the chair as I ran for the cover.
      I'm in a room. We've lost the war, so I'm being held there as a prisoner.
      I'm thinking about whether my friends are OK and what will happen to us.
      TH from somewhat recently at work in waking life arrives at my holding area.
      He is there to tell me that the others are OK.
      Then, back to isolation.
      Sometime later my niece shows up at the back window (the window is up high, since the room is partially underground).
      I try to hide under a desk in the room because I don't want her to have to deal with her uncle being imprisoned.
      She doesn't find me.
      A phone in the room rings and I answer. The person on the line tells me that there might be a chance of me getting out.
      There is a form that I can fill out and if done correctly I can leave isolation.
      I pickup the form and go outside to where the guards are outside.
      I approach them and ask what my options are.
      One part of the form is asking whether I actually killed any enemy combatants.
      I honestly couldn't recall if I had killed the man in the chair, and the guards seemed compassionate to my memory inaccuracy.
      I'm in a cafeteria eating, so perhaps they let me go.

      Bathroom Wonder:
      I'm in my childhood home, it is about highschool timeframe.
      My friend DR is visiting, and my brother and him are across the hallway playing Super Mario Bros Wonder in the basement living room.
      I'm in the downstairs bathroom, trying to rub one out. I recall thinking that I had been playing Zelda Twilight Princess recently (but I'm not sure why this detail is here).
      The toilet I am sitting at is on the opposite wall that it should be,
      I can hear my brother and DR talking about how good of a game Wonder is, in terms of the level design and how the music interacts with it.

      Went to bed around 1:00AM.

      Pizza Games:
      I'm in a small, cramped space. It reminds me of Harry Potter's cupboard under the stairs.
      It's messy with wrappers and junk. Dusty too.
      I'm playing an online game with my brother on a gaming system plugged into a TV at an edge wall.
      The outcome of the game will impact whether a pizza box near me will be thrown onto the floor.
      My brother comes close to succeeding, but the pizza box does not come down.

    14. Night of Tuesday 10/31/23 (DILD)

      by , 11-02-2023 at 12:42 AM (Dreamlog)
      Went to bed around 11PM.

      I'm in the garage of my childhood home talking to someone.
      I don't recall what prompted it, but I start to perform a string of hand and nose reality checks.
      Interestingly the first few checks act as I would expect in waking life. Maybe my brain was doing some next-level deception to distract me.
      But then on the last nose reality check I can breathe.
      I become lucid.
      I do an extra hand reality check to verify and it confirms that I am dreaming.
      Linus from Linus Tech Tips is there in the garage, and he says "Great job becoming lucid!"
      I think this might have been my brain attempting to invoke "Lucid Dream Tech Support" from Daniel Love's writings.
      There are a few others there congratulating me, but I can't recall who.
      I go outside through a side opening that isn't there in waking life.
      The grass is long and very deep green. The world in general is dark and dim.
      I try to increase the dream's brightness by requesting it outloud, but nothing happens.
      I see that the moon in the sky is huge and bright.
      I decide to start flying towards the moon, taking off superman-style.
      As I fly, I recall that the scene is similar to that of the finale in the PC game, Everhood.
      I think about how it would be fun to play the soundtrack from the game here.
      I can hear the music I want to play in my head, but I can't remember what it is called.
      In the dream, I falsely named it 'Ascending Heaven' and asked for it to play.
      The song I had in my head was called 'Reconciliation' but even that was wrong for the scenario.
      The song from the game that actually would have fit is called 'Euthanasia Rollercoaster'.
      This doesn't work, but it plays something else I don't recognize.
      As I accelerate to the moon, I lose my way (and maybe some lucidity too) and end up at my elementary school.
      The school is just down the street from my home, so it sorta makes sense.
      I'm flying high above the playground, now on a metal ring. Sorta like Goku on the flying nimbus.
      The ring isn't slippery, so I don't struggle to stay on.
      There is a full-on medieval war happening far below. I see two armies locked in combat.
      I focus on an old man wizard wielding a staff, and then he sees me looking down.
      Despite the supposed distance, he jabs into the air and strikes the metal ring and starts to pull on it.
      I shake him off and dodge, but I lose lucidity shortly after.

      Chaos Bird:
      I'm flying around an upscale looking restaurant as a red bird. I'm creating a scene.
      I see my therapist at a table, and see that he is eating a bowl of beans.
      I divebomb and flip the bowl on him so that it stains his clothes.
      I fly back up out of reach and search for my next target.
      People are yelling at me, trying to do something about me.
      I notice Jordan Peterson. I divebomb his food as well and mess up his day.
      I feel embarrassed, but at the same time justified.
      I get the impression that these people deserve it, and I should ignore feeling embarrassed.
