      What is the importance of this?

      So I had a lucid dream in which I ask my dream to show me something important but I do not understand why it is in important. So I start the lucid dream off in the cavern. I remember my goal to ask my dream to show me something important. When I ask the scene changes and I am in a computer lab. In front of me is a computer. It has a line as if you were about to ask sri or google a question. It starts to talk and I believe it is an audio file from a website. However I cannot hear anything. I am confused by this so I ask the dream for clarification. The space bar button is pressed on the keyboard and what I believe to be audio plays again. Can anyone relate to this or provide a suggestion of why or how this may be important? Perhaps I was supposed to hear the audio?

      Edit: It makes sense for me not to hear. I didn't ask to hear something important. I asked to be shown something important. So what is so important about being shown a computer that talks to me like sri. But if I didn't ask to hear something important then why would it show me something that involves the sense of sound?

      Silence is important.

      I orginally thought the audio file played something you couldn't comprehend, therefore my gibberish post, I found the way your dream presented gibberish as something important pointing to something a bit profound. But I reread your post and I understand now it was just a quiet audio file...?

      Also very cool.

      I think the something important was initially computers, but then the something important became that the computers were not getting the message across.

      Unfortunately your unconscious is not always going to give you an obvious answer!
      Try again. Maybe next time you'll get something profound.

      When you said 'something important' is this something specific? If your message was vague perhaps your dream experience didn't know how to respond...maybe the computer malfunction was you coming out of lucid state (confusion) or physically waking up

      I did not intend this something to be very specific. But I don't think the computer malfunction was what was happening. I find it weird that the clarification I was given was the space bar being pressed which re-played the audio.

      Usually a button being pressed is associated with commanding a computer to do something. There was no mouse to press so the keyboard was pressed. The spacebar is the biggest button on the keyboard so the dream might have been chosen to press it either because it was the easiest to press or the dream wanted to emphasize a button was being pressed.

      My first impression is that the dream simply shifted its theme to match your attitude. You treated your dream like an AI like siri or a search engine like Google so the dream took that form. Seems the dream never gave you any answer though. Dreams often end too short... But you dream every night so that's okay.

      My advice if you want to learn something important from your dreams... Ask yourself, what are recurrent themes in your dreams... If you dream about something often, that's probably important. Than, play with that scenario, try to understand it. Ask for that dream next time you lucid dream and play with that.

      I'm sure some people have good results asking vague, or even direct questions to a dream, but I often find my dream unprepared for these questions and the answers I get back seem like random, superficial, often false answers. You can do the same without being dreaming. Just ask yourself while awake: show me something important. Medidate on that for a while...

      Well I wouldn't be surprised if my dream gave me an answer that took me awhile to figure it out. I like to deeply think about things. Try to find the meaning in them. So if my dream gave me something that would take time to deduce I wouldn't mind because I like to think about things. Though you could be right about not receiving very good answers. This was the only time I have ever received a response from a dream so I cannot say if it's a valid response or not. Just for clarification your recommending that I try meditating and asking myself to show me something important?

      Yes, I do recommend to meditate on it... or active daydreaming. I think meditation and active daydreaming are better suited for asking vague or direct questions. Because you have all the time in the world to answer. And you can reflect on the answer, expand, wait, ask again, etc... Dreams are so short and volatile. Most often than not, writing is unreadable, messages are unintelligible... for example, you didn't hear that recording. Most probable answer: your dream did not manifest anything. Dreams are not perfect.

      I think, ask the question. But find the answer in a week worth of dreams... or a month worth of dreams. Not just the 5 seconds after asking. There will be plenty to over analyze. I just feel it is wasted effort to try to analyze baseline noise for specific answers.
