Last night I had a variety of dreams, unfortunately I did not try to remember any of them and so now I can not remember most of them, but maybe I will slowly remember some of them as I type this.

One of the dreams involved me walking during the day in an area that looked like the D Junior High School, I came across a group of men and women, and there were different areas with people from different cultures/countries like small villages/countries or something; and one area had a group of people who might have been mostly from India (this group seemed to follow Islam, not Hinduism, there was a group who followed Hinduism but they were separate from this group) & a few countries who mostly followed the religion of Islam.

The group of men & women who I came across first were from another culture/country than theirs, but I am not sure which cultures/countries the group of people were from who I was with but it was probably a Western based culture that was more secular, and we crossed the mostly Islamic based culture area to explore; but the women in our group got confronted by a group of men wearing traditional clothing from their culture with some of them wearing turbans & other types of headware who were angry with the women in our group for various reasons that they said broke their religious/cultural laws/rules.

We apologized for any possible offenses and we tried to keep the peace, but the group of men were very angry and threatening us; and they seemed to want to arrest the women to punish them or kill them or something, and so we continued to try to peacefully resolve the situation but more angry men joined their group & the situation got dangerous.

They started getting weapons (AK-47s, pistols, mêlée weapons) and they kept trying to surround us to prevent us from escaping to some of the other culture/country areas, it bothered me that I/we could not peacefully deal with the situation, because I/we tried very hard; and we even offered to try to make up for any possible offenses, but their penalties were way too harsh in our opinions and they would not compromise with us.

They argued with us over cultural/religious rules/laws in detail, but I can not remember these parts.

They started attacking us at some point as we tried to escape and we either had weapons already and/or we took some of their weapons, either way a battle started, we fought to escape; and they fought to kill us.

I remember stepping up to help our group, I call them our group but I was not exactly part of their group, I had just come across them early in the dream & I explored various areas/markets with them; and I seemed to have more defensive skills than most of them, and so I helped lead them during our fight to escape.

I remember leading us through various areas to avoid gun fire, I remember returning fire at our attackers, I remember handing out weapons to members of our group, I remember giving tactical advice to our group, et cetera; my strategy was to keep our group behind cover, keep moving toward an exit point, and keep our attackers from surrounding us or pinning us down or killing us.

The situation was bad, but we managed to escape to another culture/country area that was more friendly toward us, and so the angry group/culture/country started recruiting other cultures/countries who had similar beliefs as them to join them to destroy our group & any groups/cultures/countries who helped us; and so our group started to warn other cultures/countries/groups to join together to try to peacefully end this conflict.

Alliances started to be formed and different groups/cultures/countries started to prepare their weapons and defenses, we tried to form a somewhat United Nations-like group to peacefully resolved the conflict, but that was probably not going to work; and we also started preparing our defenses just in case that failed.

A few gunshots were probably fired here and there, as all of this was going on, but no one openly attacked/invaded another area yet; but almost everyone was preparing for a war.

The angry group/cultures/countries wanted to invade but they were still building their numbers/alliances, they were being a bit more cautious, since they were not sure how many other cultures/countries/groups would help us.

This entire culture war situation bothered me, because earlier in the dream there were people among the angry group’s culture(s) who treated us fairly and we got along with them, and we tried to respect(?) their cultures while we were in their countries even if we disagreed with parts of their cultures.

But the angry/mean/loud/extreme/et cetera people among their cultures messed things up and were the ones pushing the war and they made followers of Islam & their cultures look bad but I knew that not all followers of Islam or any culture act the same (there are people in every culture who you can get along with and some who you can not), it was sad, but that was the situation.

Interestingly I was not officially a member of any culture, like in real life, so I got along with a variety of people and I was not tied to one group/culture/country; and so making alliances/working with various people was easy for me and normal, and I did not exactly fit into any group which was interesting & gave me a unique type of freedom/flexibility.

 

I woke up as I/we tried to work toward peace and prepare our defenses for a possible war/invasion.

At this time I can not remember my other dream fragments from last night, but if I do I will add them later.

The end,
