      A dreamt-up life

      In may of 2006 I've had a dream that encompassed, literally, an entire life. In the dream I've been an elderly person living somewhere in the United States, with my memories going back to the Second World War. I could remember the bombs destroying the buildings in my city in the Central Europe, I could remember the hasty escape to the West, and I've had a clear feeling that my life had passed and all that's left for me to do is to die. Shortly before the awakening I've realized, to certain extent, the falsity of my memories, and it was not entirely without regret that I've had to let go of the false dream-personality. I awoke shortly after.

      It sometimes happens to me that, upon falling to sleep, I find myself thinking about events that never happened. I also have troubles discerning the dream-memories from the real ones shortly after awakening, even after I get up.

      Time to call the doctor?...

      Sounds like an account I read on a different forum, though rather different.

      Anyway, that's pretty freaky stuff. I agree with hbash - write a story. You might want to go to the doctor, but I don't think it would do all that much if you don't have recurring dreams like this.

      As a matter of fact, I sometimes feel like a character from one of Dick's novels. Literally.

      Anyway, when the dreaming memories continue into the waking state, even when it only happens occasionaly and doesn't last for long, it's not a good sign. On the brighter side, it can shed some light on the mechanisms of memory. Dreaming and remembering are somehow related, or seem to be. Perception itself, come to think of it, is a creative process - and the memory is nothing else but another form of awareness or perception, and in specific conditions - such as in the hypnotic state, when the hypnotist implants false memories in his subject, but also in the hypnagogic states and in sleep - it can become distorted as easily as do the other contents of our conscious experience. The fact that it can happen spontaneously proves that it's not an abnormality. The sci-fi writer Philip Dick experienced a powerful flood of the obviously false memories of his 'previous' or parallel life as a secret Christian in the ancient Rome; psychedelic substance known as Salvia Divinorum often replaces the real memory of one's life with the spurious one - one user not only hallucinated himself to be a Chrisian monk but also had set of memories to back his vision, another one became (briefly) a resident of the frontier town in the 19 century etc. What happens to me are the occasional and brief distortions of memory either when falling to sleep, or upon waking up from the dream. Nothing spectacular enough to be used as a material for another "VALIS". So, unless these intrusions will permanently cut me off from reality I'll just let them pass. On the other hand, THIS moment and THIS memory could be a dream as well. In this case the situation's already hopeless.
