I did not voice record my dreams or really think about them so I forgot most of my dreams except for part of the end of my last dream, and the dream seemed to involved several layers to the dream world(s) and probably several layers of consciousness.

The dream took place during the day in another country, probably in a Western country (possibly in Europe), and a man who was probably from Saudi Arabia was at his house waiting on his father to arrive for a visit; and he put a lot of effort into preparing himself, he tried to dress partly traditional wearing what I think is called a keffiyeh, and he seemed stressed/anxious like his father was very strict and judgmental of him.

I am not even sure if the other dream characters could see me or not, I was able to move between layers of the dream and possibly layers of consciousness, and one layer of the dream was outside the house under a covered sitting area another layer was inside the house and another layer was in another dimension in a mostly empty somewhat dark room; and there were possibly more layers of the dream.

I moved between each layer, I could also see and hear what was happening between each layer because I could see through each layer like a window/portal, and I remember moving back and forth listening/watching; and testing out summons from the video game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and one of the summons that I tested was the Conjure Dremora Lord summon.

The man’s father arrived wearing traditional clothing and they greeted each other and they sat outside near the house under the covered sitting area, and I remember the father complaining about his son not looking or acting or being Muslim enough (he kept saying that he was not Muslim enough many times during the dream); and he complained about his partly Western-style clothing, about him staying in a Western country, and about other things like that as the son tried to respond and explain himself.

The man really wanted his father to like and respect him but he always failed to live up to his father’s expectations because he was not as traditionalist/conservative as his father, and so this was a constant strain to their relationship; and I felt bad for the man.

As I was listening to them, testing summons, and moving between layers of the dream and of consciousness I started to experiment/test trying to do something that I can not remember involving all layers of the dream and of consciousness; maybe I was going to see if I could effect/affect all layers (including the real world), but I can not remember.

I wish that I could remember more because it was interesting and confusing, I probably was able to feel and know that I was sleeping in bed and could probably partly feel my body a few times, and I moved between dreaming and sleeping and daydreaming and thinking and possibly some other forms of consciousness while keeping the dream stable; but that is all that I can remember unfortunately.

The end,

Reblogged this on The Blogging Path and commented:
It’s too bad (Muslim) parents stick too much into tradition and NOT feel comfortable in their children’s choices in life. I think that happens with each generation where tradition slowly gives way new worlds.

I think that is a bit of a problem with most cultures/societies/families/et cetera in general, but I can understand some of the reasons why and I can understand some of the concerns.

Thank you for commenting Flynn,
