    1. 2019-09-29 12:30 -- Choice sim/game; store fly-through; ominous hallway; Lego city; snipers in trees

      by , 09-30-2019 at 04:46 PM
      In simulation/game of some sort; restarts several times, with me taking different path each time. (like a choose-your-own-adventure game)

      At large Costco-like place, flying through as part of a group, but not buying anything; reach end, and they say to pay; I say I didn't realize we were supposed to buy as we went through; ask, and guy lets me go back in without paying.

      At small clinic/food place; I make wrong choice while talking to a woman there, despite feeling I'd made good ones up to that point, and want to reload from right before that choice; instead, I have to restart the whole thing.

      Talking to lady at start of game, who is apparently aware of being in a simulation; she brings me to place down in a lower-story hallway (looks like old house hallway to garage), and she says to go with her to see what she's talking about; it looks ominous so I refuse; I say we should just talk about it; she says not, since I'm not "one of them" or something; I say we should meet up again to discuss, from opposite parties/groups; she seems okay with that.

      Starting out in city (like in Lego game); I start exploring, but guide person says I should be careful and not go to a certain part of town (further from the waterfront); I struggle back toward where I started, but make it and regain movement.

      Find young person who maybe would join with the task I was set toward, except he seems untidy and pretty obnoxious. (he also had blemishes on his face of some sort)

      Am with some real-world family and friends (mom and dad, siblings, A, C, and S); we are exploring again, in area with lots of trees; I head off a bit to follow something I think, and find that there are tons of snipers and such in the trees; I find that I'm equipped with the same vehicle and weapon (gun, I think) as them, but I don't use it; instead, I start trying to leave the area back to my group; while speeding away in the semi-flying vehicle, I wake up from someone calling me in real life.
    2. 2017-02-15 5:51 -- Kobayashi foot, cartoon character, coworker names, false awakening experiment

      by , 02-15-2017 at 03:29 PM
      =kobayashi (anime character) had explosive growth on foot
      He told me to get rid of it by smashing his foot with a hammer. (as he had apparently done to help me just before this, though not painfully)
      It was hard to do so, as he was reacting semi-realistically, but I ended up persevering as his cries for help were also realistic.

      =went on fountain far up
      Jumped off onto platform in house near laundry room.
      Lucidity increased here, and I just paused here for a moment considering options.
      I noticed I could jump down to our living room, so did so.

      =saw cartoon character on our couch (forget which one, but definitely remember him)
      I at first wanted to go outside, as I could see the sun streaming in. But I remembered my dream goal, so decided to go for that.
      Walked up to him.

      =Kaumfield, brady, peter pan, and two others
      He greeted me and said something. (I ignored it as I had a dream goal to perform)
      Me: "By the way, can you tell me the names of A's coworkers?"
      He said one name, but then went on and on about some story surrounding it.
      I urged him to just say the names.
      He then said kaumfield, another name, peter pan, and brady.
      I focused on these names to not forget them, but this (or something) caused the scene to fade.

      =false awakening
      Knew it was most likely an fa. But I paused, and decided to experiment.
      I very carefully brought my hand up to my face, trying to scan for any indication of there being two "arms", with one being the phantom and one real. (The arm felt very real, by the way.)
      The results were inconclusive, but I think I did feel something different -- either my real arm, or just another phantom one my dream mind made up.
      Also, I felt a familiar twinge while doing more forceful movements, that you get when real-world sensations start coming in, weakening the dream.
      Anyway, after a while my real arm, I finally felt it. It kind of just "switched" to it, but this time I was closely monitoring, so have a little bit more sensational detail that is hard/tiring to word out properly.
      Basic idea is that the "switch" occurred as if I were discovering an extra limb -- so my fake arm was one that I was controlling, and then, oh now there's this other arm that I swiftly switched to, by default.
      In the future, may be worth experimenting with *not* "switching" to that real limb, and seeing how long I can keep feeling and/or controlling the dream/phantom limb.
    3. 2017-02-14 15:12 -- Vr game, space rock jumping, pool room crabs

      by , 02-15-2017 at 12:26 AM
      =in and out of game, starting to show it to family (it was apparently a game "i made")
      Showed scene of large "game world", with many trees, and some large expanses.
      =in hotel, with two brothers with condition! (though one less so)
      =in town hall place, missing grandpa guy barely

      =in elevator
      We got in late evening.
      My lucidity arrived/increased here, as it got quiet and I saw the world around me with increased awe/self-awareness.
      I considered placing small stick I was holding in crack in door while we went up, but decided no, and just to go on to next scene.
      =jumping on space rocks
      Talked about gravity with bringer guy. He said was just floating, but I pointed out they had some gravity, and he agreed.
      =in pool room
      Trying to evade crab guys, trying to bite us and such.
      Almost woke, but kept myself in by anchoring with touching things, and "smiling" and thus feeling my face more.
      =in office room
      Other guy was trying to convince guy who came with us to manage a website for him.
      There was a form. The normal initials box was "max", and used up apparently, so he had to enter 99 in the "maxx" box. (his name was max apparently)
    4. 2017-02-13 11:30 -- Voice prompt oddity, unstable walk, disintegration before dream goal question

      by , 02-13-2017 at 10:20 PM
      Was lying in bed. Heard some extra sound in voice prompt that wasn't supposed to be there.

      Realized I was dreaming. Got up and went for door, while doing rc (which confirmed dream). Started yelling out for friend for dream goal.

      Kept walking downstairs. Vision destabilized, but I got it to return with focus/expectation.

      Had thought of other people hearing call and coming instead. It happened, with stranger appearing. He asked me something.

      Went to the front door. Vision faltered then came back. Saw friend. Walked up and started saying greeting.

      Recollected and prepared to ask him the dream goal question. Just as I was set to start speaking it, the dream swiftly weakened and disintegrated.

      I did not get very far. But I tried, and even lucids like this are fun. ^_^
    5. 2017-02-08 05:58 -- Sermon, flying, blue shirts, ocean dive, island, fort, zombies

      by , 02-08-2017 at 03:17 PM
      =listening to sermon
      It started nice/emotional, but then he started making bad jokes.
      =flew around with DW and SV
      DW was having a blast.
      =became teams
      Someone came up, pointed out that I had blue shirt.
      =people started fighting with people flying (since others had joined)
      For example, they started throwing tacks at the people on walls--some trying to get down, but too slow.
      =flew around discouraging fighting
      Tried yelling telling to stop, and just distracting them. (especially other blue shirts, since same team)
      =voted for self
      Landed among my own blue group.
      They were voting for leader.
      I asked who's who.
      Woman started explaining numbers, I asked for very fast summary.
      She said three with more votes, I was one of them.
      I asked which number was mine, and voted for it by circling, as time was lamost out.
      Friend to my left got mad/sad, felt was taking away chance.
      False awakening, with me sleeping on stomach.
      =letting sink into ocean
      Tried getting back in-dream by letting myself drift more deeply into a halfway-imagined halfway-perceived ocean with waves.
      Daniel Love was narrating the instructions and expected events as though it were a youtube video.
      =on tropical island
      I felt disconnected/only-seeing my body at first, so for a minute or so, I was just trying to reconnect. I eventually did so by banging a metal and wood piece against a wooden post.
      I saw a cool wooden fort, and decided to climb up it.
      =on rotting wooden fort
      I construct something with wood pieces lying around.
      I climb to top of tower.
      The environment is beautiful, but dreamy and hazy.
      It's late evening, and matching with the sense of potential danger, zombies slowly appear on the beach.
      I'm not really scared, more of just don't want to deal with them.
      I decide to wake myself up.
      Before I do so, however, I hear a number prompt--which fades the dream scene.
      I sense that I could still get back in, but decide not to--in part because I didn't want to forget what had already occurred.
    6. 2017-01-20 ~17:00 -- R at table, flying, choosing forward road, talking with dc at park

      by , 02-02-2017 at 02:22 AM
      =r at table
      A, R, M, G, and I are at a table talking.
      Something makes me think of lucid dreaming. I think, "I wish this were a lucid dream!"
      Do nose-plug rc: I am in-dream.
      Feel stuck, ask R to run jump and kick me up/out.
      She eventually does so, and it works.
      Racquel comes sith me as I start flying.

      =flying through glass

      =choosing forward road
      We come to a fork, and I ask R which road to take. She delays, so I choose forward.

      =flying over city
      Fly over buildings for a bit, looking for good landing.

      =landing in park
      See nice park, and head toward it.
      DC from parking lot area follows us.

      =talking with dc
      DC is a teenage girl. She looks up and yells, something about, "You know, dcs aren't things that will just do whatever you say each time."

      I feel dream fading.
      I wake "in bed", rc saying in-dream.
      Wake myself up eventually by feeling-for/moving neck.
    7. 2017-01-29 19:13 -- Shifting back in-dream, flying over city, hand focusing, flying over city in sto

      by , 01-30-2017 at 04:33 AM
      [An earlier lucid that I've now forgotten.]

      Awoke briefly, did rc, began recollection.
      After a couple minutes, something seemed suspicious, so did rc, and was in-dream!
      Flew out back window, and over the city quite a ways.
      [Some events here which I forgot]
      [A few seconds at the end which I remember but am not recording.]

      Had a false awakening, caught with rc.
      Tried wiggling/rocking out of bed, but was finding it difficult (strain level was close to where I could move for real).
      Switched to rubbing hands in front of face method. That was working tactilely, and slightly visually, but not enough.
      Switched to holding palms in front of face, and focusing carefully on them. This worked well! (once I adjusted my hands just a few inches away)
      Stumbled out of bed, opened door. It was late evening in the house.
      I don't like lucid-entries in house when it's dark, so I swiftly jump down to our first floor, and head to open the door.
      My subconscious is a jerk and puts two locks on the door that I have to unlock first, but I get it open.
      I walk out, and see an early evening sky. There are some clouds, but not too bad. I'm filled with awe and joy yet again, and set out flying.
      As I fly, the clouds thicken some, and start strong gusts of wind and rain that come at me full force. I love the feel of it, but it does make flying more difficult.
      I decide to veer down, and I look through the streets for a target.
      I see a house in our neighborhood with the lights on, and the sihlouhette of people inside.
      I head indoors, and see two parents and a young child. I say that I'm here as the in-home teacher of the child, and follow the kid upstairs.
      The kid leads me into his room. Now upstairs, I look around the room, but leave to look around elsewhere since my target is not here.
      [Some unshared events]
    8. 2017-01-15 12:30 -- Dark sky and cloud dream powers, crossing river, fighting courier

      by , 01-29-2017 at 10:28 PM
      [I was already lucid by the point, but don't remember the earlier parts as I fell asleep while recollecting.]
      It's dark out, and I'm with a group of about a dozen, in an apocalypse-type scene. The buildings are worn down, and we're evading an unknown danger.
      I head into a shed with a couple others, and see a medium sized animal (threat!) on the ground/floor. I decide to test out my fire-emitting abilities, so shape my hands, and focus on the feeling of something being released from them. It takes a few tries, but remembering back on earlier times causes it to briefly/weakly work (I get a small flame to form on the ground).

      I head back to the group, and decide we should get weapons to defend ourselves with. I look around, and find a pile of wooden bars and long panels. I pick them up, and distribute them amonst the members. I take one of the nicer ones, and take a minute to just go around basking in the beauty/awe of the situation. I remember, in particular, wifts of cloud/fog passing by, andnpassing my wooden bar through it, and seeing it dissapate the moisture some.

      At some point, more threats come nearby, and, with the others, I engage in combat with a few -- still practicing some dream abilities. (for example, using the stick as a catilyst for sparks and flames on the target behind it visually)

      I wake up after a couple more minutes, and begin recollection. However, I wanted to turn on my other side because it would feel nice, and though I knew this greatly increased the chance of falling asleep aaccidentally, I did it anyway -- and in fact did fall asleep. (with the app turned off)

      I plan to reduce this occurence in the future, either by learning to keep my app running while recollecting, or by doing faster recording by using a bluetooth keyboard or the like with text entry already set up for the night (so I can just start typing at any point in the night).

      After this was a vivid non-lucid dream, followed by a relatively short period where I did become lucid -- though with a focus on the situation at hand since by that point I'd gotten in combat (of sorts) with someone.

      The background for this second dream was our living in the equivalent of a civilization ship, where everyone we know lives in the same megastructure (not sure if it was actually in space).

      One part had me with my sister and old friend passing over a river, and me getting a bit wet when I fell off the floating dock-like platform. (the water was very shallow, however)

      Another part had me running down the halls to various places iwl from my memory (like our old house). Eventually I reached a situation that sparked lucidity, after our garage had been broken down earlier and my dad was rebuilding it. Someone from the rest of the dream had run down to our garage as well, and suspecting the guy a threat (he was like a courier from the government or other group it seemed) I got in a pseudo-combat situation, but eventually managed to defuse the situation by staying calm and actually reasoning with the person. (he had a knife, and I had general dream powers, so we had mutually assured destruction/discomfort and were motivated toward peace)
      It was fun accomplishing this, but before I could go on to other goals (which I actually remembered this time), I woke up.
    9. 2017-01-28 18:03 -- False awakening, listening in, wrong dream goal "mute"

      by , 01-29-2017 at 03:18 AM
      I realize I'm dreaming, either just before having a false awakening, or because of the false awakening transition.
      Try rocking/phantom wiggling.
      Try listening in.
      The noise gets really loud.
      Try rocking/phantom wiggling again, with basically no results.
      Go back to listening in.
      Noise peaks again, and I then visualize/feel myself standing from bed and walking toward door. I feel light touch sensations when grabbing handle.
      I walk toward stairs yelling to family, but decide to go other direction to parents' room.
      I wait near their bed a sec, and manage to get my vision back by grounding myself and focusing on trying to see them in bed.
      I see them in bed with my younger brother, however, they appear to all be dreaming/just on the verge of waking up.
      I wait a few seconds, trying to remember my dream goals, and then manage to get them awake by touching them lightly.
      I now think I remember my dream goals: "dream guide, mute, pencil, and something else" (correct, other than the second, which was "massage" instead of "mute")
      I get confused by this, as I don't know what "mute" means, but I assume it means, "Pretend that you're mute."
      I then stop talking, and point at my mouth, making gestures and mouthing words -- pretending I had just gone mute.

      I really want to go on to the rest of the goals, but sadly it begins breaking up again, and I'm shortly back in bed. My body still feels rested, but my mind feels too awake, so I decide to just get up. I may have tried anyway if I'd instantly realized that I misremembered the second dream goal, but only did so about a half minute later.
    10. 2017-01-27 17:29 -- Running through fields, restaurant visit, barn ship and bees

      by , 01-28-2017 at 03:08 AM
      I'm running at high speed (about that of a horse) along a large field, as I realize I'm dreaming. The landscape's really nice, but I keep running up the incline to a pass in the hills/mountain.
      I reach the pass, and see another valley on the other side, which is apparently where I had been heading (though I forget what the mission was--I think it may have just been finding a peacable place outside the range of influence of some enemy in the area).
      However, I look around and see the small figure of a knight on his horse in the distance, down in the valley. I turn to the right and try to evade him, but he ends up seeing me, and comes up to fight/block me.
      I believe I manage to escape him without any serious combat, and then continue on my mission as I lose lucidity.
      There was another lucid here, but I won't count it for the comp, as all I remember (besides some other more abstract memories) is that:
      * It was longer than the above one.
      * It involved a friend's family, as well as some sort of government/authority figure which was visiting.
      * Part of it occurred inside a restaurant.
      * Part of it occurred at night outside at our college campus.

      [I wake up, and turn off my speaker, but a minute or so later, realize I'm still very close to sleep, so I stay still and try for a re-entry.]
      Non-lucid dream with me playing a game like Donkey Kong Country on a gameboy-like device, and then after that considering playing a board game with my siblings, with my brother-in-law driving a full-size open-top car around our living room as an alternative to walking around it! (the game required accessing all areas of the board)
      Realize I'm in-dream again!
      See that I'm in a large gathering of people in an upper story of a barn-like building--actually, like on a deck of a ship in that barn.
      A friend is getting rowdy toward the corner, and I warn them to be careful, otherwise... that happens (a similar thing had happened in an earlier dream). They break the brace for that corner, and the platform starts falling to the floor there.
      I see it's not that far to the ground, and yell to people that they can jump down if they want--or wait till a better path is made. (others I know from wl are doing so)
      I walk around the frame of the upper story/ship platform, but have to jump up shortly to pass a tight spot. Someone gets mad, saying I shouldn't obstruct the path, so I quickly keep going, and finally drop on the side near the exit.
      I try to think of what to do next, but I had apparently disturbed some bees in a section of the path (I heard them buzz when I fell over one part), and see that one had followed me. I get annoyed, and though remembering it a dream, still don't want it to buzz me. I try swatting it away, with limited success, and then transition (sadly) to a false-awakening.

      I have one of those false-awakenings where I think part of my dream has been recorded automatically... in fact it had, as confirmed as I read it on my computer screen (and started making real formatting edits to), but of course only in-dream. Got annoyed when I awoke for real about a minute later, and realized I'd have to rewrite that text.
    11. 2017-01-26 17:58 -- Skating, colored line matching buzzing, false awakenings

      by , 01-27-2017 at 03:49 AM
      I realize I'm dreaming.
      I explore the building some, and consider my options.
      Head into a large gym room, where there's people skating. (well, some were also doing something like volleyball)
      See other two enter.
      I evade them, and skate around edge.
      Skate back over to entry area, and head to lobby place.

      [Section removed, for completely ambiguous reasons. However, it involved summoning of a character from an anime.]

      =in bed
      Have a false awakening, which I successfully remain skeptical of.
      I watch a fuzzy line form that matches with the buzzing sensation of my body in bed. (~8 bands of color in offset circle, rotating counter-clockwise)
      I keep myself calm as I confirm that the lines match with the buzzing sensation in my body.
      The two become more erratic, getting a beat and such, as though music.
      Eventually, though this is interesting, I start also seeing a vision of people outside our house.

      =fa 1
      Feel something like a transition, but know there's a good chance it's another fa.
      [conversation with my dad which is insubstantial]
      Get mostly woken by number prompt. I check it, and it's valid: "1537" (the 1, 5, and 7 were there at least) [edit: in fact it was 7115]
      Manage to lightly get back in, by using imagination of the just-left scene; my vision's still mostly gone, but I can hear my dad again.

      =fa 2
      [More conversation with my dad, still knowing it to be in-dream.]

      Get woken by real number prompt.
    12. 2017-01-26 12:54 -- Bike trip, talking with ai/subconscíous, warping paper and obqc

      by , 01-26-2017 at 10:13 PM
      I'm on bike trip, just having gotten on the bus. Someone says, "If you forget your bike, you lose it." I run out and say "Wait", and start pulling my bike to the trailer, when my dream fades.

      The dream reforms shortly into a scene in like a train station. I now know I'm dreaming. From this part, I only remember the part toward the end.
      Someone is sitting to my left and right, as I talk with a "voice" who's controlling a very large screen on the wall in front of us. It's either understood as my subconscious, or something close to it, like a powerful AI--either way, it was asking me who I should summon back from the dream that had just ended.
      I scroll through the list and pick someone. The person on my left then starts pestering me, and then I think that led to the false-awakening below.

      I'm now back in bed. I think I'm probably awake, but when I open my eyes, then close them again, I notice that my "eyes-closed" vision/imagination of the room around me is unusually sharp, and contains not real element (like a large tin on a shelf above me). I decide I'm probably in the in-between state where part of it's from my senses, and part from my dream generation.
      I thus begin the break-back-into-dream procedures. I try rocking left and right, but it doesn't seem to have much effect.
      I try imagining the feeling of there being some object on the ceiling. This one starts working. The vision of an object forms, and sharpens. I can now see a large white sheet of paper on the ceiling, with writing on it as of some official document.
      I try reading the text, but only get a few words as I decide it's better to focus on the overall picture for use as a dream-reentry tool. (the part I read had "Property of [something]" as the title)
      So I focus on the vision and try to deepen it, and it begins warping and animating. I also start hearing some noises--something like wind, and then more distinctly, a voice saying some letters. They were repeating, like of a rhyme. They were: "o b q c" (may have gotten the first one wrong, but the rest are correct)
      I feel that I can make the paper warp even more and become more wild, but this makes me slightly nervous as I don't want it to start talking or something (still a lucid scaredy-cat), so I decide to shift to another type.
      I start doing the rocking again, or something motion or hearing based, when I then hear a familiar sound, of a number prompt being spoken.
      I then realize it had awoken me for real, as verified by rc shortly after. (which is fine; I prefer continuation, but getting a lucid each day (as has been true lately) greatly reduces the pressure)
    13. 2017-01-25 19:41 -- Evading ranged attacks of island inhabitants

      by , 01-26-2017 at 04:46 AM
      Sorry, this one has very little context as I was interrupted and couldn't return my thought immediately, so I only distinctly remember the part just before waking. (which is sad since I know most of it was from an earlier section)

      We'd just made it to the island somehow. I had flown up onto a wooden platform about 300 feet in the air, and was surveying the scene, when natives on the ground began firing at me with small flute-like weapons (they'd use them to shoot small arrows, I think poisoned). I was successfully evading them, but was simultaneously attempting to coordinate some procedure with the rest of my group.

    14. 2017-01-25 12:24 -- Mind control tank, mystery, chasing enemy, many dcs, room distortions

      by , 01-25-2017 at 10:13 PM
      Realize I'm lucid, in one of the rooms below.

      Control a tank toy/object with mind control--mostly just for function.
      Jump on counter with younger brother. My hands are in use, so I ask them to move obstructions to jump down. They take a while, but do.
      I jump down, and shortly after, something snaps, and I shift to a "different level" where I can't see them, but can barely see a tank thing I'd been controlling earlier.

      Follow it, and it leads me somewhere; I think to the next remembered section below.
      Enter into a library in the building, to see my older sister and her husband and my two younger sisters there.
      I see that they're researching the mystery from earlier, looking for the location of the unique object. (it was like a penchant with powers or something)
      I look through their findings, and some books, and they're interesting.
      I see suspicious man walk up to younger sister, and start talking.
      While talking, he grabs an item we'd been using to track down info!
      We start chasing him, with me yelling out "Stop that man!"
      By the time we got to the doors, 3 dc's had tried to help chase him. However, one on the left was too slow, and one on the right slammed into the door that I was opening. The third one got through with us.
      In the next room, I yell it again and an older married couple just watch as we run by. (they were in a restaurant room)
      The third dc passes us up now, as I got slowed down by the feeling of something around my body (perhaps blanket irl), and barely makes it in time before the locked door he ran through closed.
      I'm glad, however I see a large room up ahead in the "resitricted area", and I fear an untimely end may be approaching for the dc. (who had become a cop in that last part)
      Yep, I hear and see the light of an explosion. Not only that, but I see that the path to leave has a spark of light pass down it implying it's set to go off and explode as well.

      We rush out down the exit path, and find it leads us outdoors, down a long waterslide-like channel!
      We run down it, but stop in a side-area, so the explosion doesn't hit us if he fires it early.
      We wait for some time, but nothing happens. Eventually we hear a motor start up, and assume he's coming in-person.
      We decide to run for it instead of clashing, so we run to the ground level, and see a *ton* of people clustered near the large building we'd been in earlier. And I mean tons, probably the most I've ever seen in a lucid--like 100+ visible at once.
      Apparently they're scared and awaiting our defeating the enemy or saving them.
      I fly over the crowd, and land down near the closer-to-building side. I talk with some of our friends/family.
      I pick one dc, a baby by itself, and decide to help it first and fly it to "safety" (further away fand higher rom the water channel, on decks just outside the building--oh yeah, the fear was that he'd use electricity and flooding)

      Something then happened that caused us to be in the building again. Memory is very odd here, and actually almost feels like it was a second set of memories for the end of the dream--thought I doubt this.
      Anyway, apparently the enemy had began control over the building making passageways obsolete, and empty/leading to bad places.
      I and those from earlier came back from a path, and found we couldn't go on that path again because of it.
      Now having made it back to "civilization"/my family friends and other dcs, I look around some with mom for some of the other rooms from earlier (as a house/hotel).
      While we do so, we found that the room distortion has increased further! Now every few times we move, the distance at which the "mirror" effect exists becomes closer. Soon nothing is stable but our small room, and after that, nothing is stable for me but the small area of vision where my mom is!
      She's scared at this point, and actually looks somewhat scary having that expression as she looks increasingly unrealistic.
      Lucidity increases here, naturally. (I had clear lucidity earlier, but mostly lost it for much of the plot, as I became interested and did not do persistent stabilizations)

      I tell her not to move, and that we should stay locked on each other. We do so, and I walk to her.
      As I reach her, I see that she's in a small "safe room" where the distortion hasn't reached. and that there are several other dcs there.
      Here it gets neat because it switches into movie-like mode, with music starting to play like the end of a first episode of a series. It does a cutscene of zooming in on the dc group, with them huddling thinking of how to get free, and then zooming out briefly to a neat sci-fi image of our being in some large space rock, at its center in a labyrinth-like structure.
      I get caught up in the emotion, and feel very fefreshed by it as I find myself back in bed.
      I pick up my tablet to begin the recording process, but as I'm getting it set, I hear the noise of a helicopter, a door slamming open and closed like from the wind, and a man's voice on speakerphone saying something about "not landing".
      I realize this is probably still a dream, so do an rc, and confirm that I am.
      I try using mental focus shifting to wake up. It feels like it may have worked, but an rc reveals I'm still dreaming.
      I remember the advice of forcing yourself awake by moving just the tips of your fingers. I decide to try it, however one hand is still holding my tablet. I tap the power button, and place it down. I then put both my hands out open, then tense the fingers in both simultaneously. I think I did it more forcefully than suggested, however it works, as I awake for real. (as confirmed by rc)

      by , 01-25-2017 at 04:58 AM
      I realize I'm dreaming while walking up stairs to lookout platform on top of building.
      I rush with excitement to the edge, and look out. As usual, the landscape is beautiful and vast, and I can see with crystal clear vision at any point miles away.
      I see: a forest to the left, a field with neatly placed trees but long/unkept grass in the center, buildings and roads to the right, and a lake in the distance (looked kind of like the Great Salt Lake in how the ground around it eased in so gradually).
      I think, and remember that I'd wanted to do some math questions for my dcs.
      I look around, and see about 3 dozen people on the platform, and on one below.
      I yell out, "Hey guys, I have a question for you!".
      They all pause momentarily, and then resume walking. I decide to instead single someone out.

      see guy that looks like professor, ask him what the square root of 110 is
      he ignores me, as he's talking with someone
      once he's done, i ask him again, and he says "8".
      In a half-second or so, all the dcs start laughing.
      He gets mad, and defers, saying "Well that's not my speciality. Ask [...].".
      That person then walks out of a limousine, and comes up an escalator to whwre i am
      I ask her, and she laughs and says something, and then "2 over a times 1 over b"

      back in bed
      rock and force my way up, but my blanket's still on me
      open the door, it's dark but i turn on the lights (can only see a little light from the edge of blanket)
      jump downstairs, talk with sister while going
      open door and go out
      its full brightness of day now
      I see dozens of fire trucks with lights flashing.
      I have my blanket still, and it's obstructing my vision.
      I manage to get it off, but while I do so, I here the fire trucks leave.
      I walk down the road while remembering my dream goals. ("Oh yeah, coworker, massage, pencil, headstand")
      I start looking for my friend to ask him his coworker names.
      I car comes onto the street from the intersection, and as it comes closer, I fly up for a few seconds, and pass over.
      Landing again, I look around the corner, and the next, but then realize he's less likely to be here than normal.
      I decide to "fake it". I reach my hand up and shape it like I'm holding a cell phone, then start talking, and ask, "Hey A, what's the name of some of your coworkers?"
      He responds! He says, "Hmmm...".
      I freeze ans await his list of names, but get super mad: I can feel my dream is fading. "Hurry it up!", I want/try to say, but I can't, because I'm already back in bed.
      I try a bit to reenter, but sense that it's too far gone now, and give up to begin recollection.
