Memories Of My Dream Stored In Books Inside The Dream

Last night I got in bed late and my mind was focused on different things during my last dream, and part of me was ready to get up earlier this morning but I made myself stay in bed trying to get some more sleep until it was time for me to get ready for work.

Part of this dream from last night was inspired by a Chris Stuckmann video that I watched last night on YouTube called Ghost In The Shell – Movie Review where he reviewed the live-action Ghost In The Shell (2017) film, probably the American Gods book that I am still reading and that I read part of last night, probably the last episode (episode 13 “Daredevil”) of the Netflix television series Daredevil (Season 1) which I watched last night, the video game Fallout 4 which I played yesterday, and maybe a few other things that I saw and heard and did last night.

My memory of this dream from last night is messed up and incomplete, and so I only remember some parts of this dream.

Part 1

This part of the dream involved the new live-action Ghost In The Shell film and / or a review of it (maybe Chris Stuckmann’s review), but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

Part 2

This part of the dream involved a book (maybe the book American Gods, but I am not sure), but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

Part 3

This part of the dream involved maybe a video game (maybe Fallout 4, but I am not sure), but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

Part 4

This part of the dream involved either two films (movies) and a television show or one film and a television show that I had watched in the dream, and that I was watching in the dream.

I do remember part of one movie that I was watching during the dream which was a horror film, maybe an American horror film, and it involved a woman with light-color skin with maybe long brown hair who had found some videos of her father who also had light-color skin with maybe brown hair.

The woman started watching these videos, which were disturbing and creepy, and I remember part of one video that showed her father suddenly having four uneven somewhat bulging eyes as he stood up making strange mumbling / chanting / humming-like sounds like something was possibly controlling and / or possessing him and / or had changed or cursed him or something like that.

The woman was disturbed by these videos and she started trying to figure out what was going on, the woman probably got caught up in whatever her father had got caught up in during her investigation, and the same thing probably started happening to her where she would suddenly have four or more bulging uneven eyes while making strange sounds and she probably underwent other changes and probably acted different like she was possibly not in full control of herself when this would happen to her.

There were more details that I learned and saw as I watched this film, maybe a female friend and / or one or more of her family members started to wonder if something was wrong with her so they probably started investigating what was going on as well, but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream now.

Part 5

All that I can remember of this part of the dream is that I was seeing and hearing part of a WWE professional wrestling event, the ring announcers were talking, and the professional wrestler Big Show (Paul Donald Wight II) was with them.

Big Show was talking about injuries that he has had (including some recent ones), and that he was going to take a break or retire from professional wrestling because of his injuries but he did not say if it was a temporary or permanent retirement.

The crowd and the ring announcers wanted Big Show to stay, Big Show said that he wanted to stay, but sometimes you have to make hard decisions.

The next thing that I remember is that later Big Show was in the middle of the wrestling ring with some attractive women who were barely wearing clothing, maybe professional wrestlers or cheerleaders or something, and they were entertaining the crowd.

I remember Big Show asking the women what they wanted as a gift, maybe it was Christmas or something, and the women said that they wanted the professional wrestler Kevin Nash and the crowd started to cheer.

Music started to play like maybe Kevin Nash was going to walk to the ring, Big Show started trying to energize the crowd, but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

Part 6

This last part of the dream was the most interesting part of the dream, but unfortunately I can not remember most of the important details so I will have to make some assumptions during some parts of this part of the dream.

This last part of the dream brought all the parts of this dream together, I possibly realized that I was about to wake up but I am not sure, and I started trying to remember as much as I could of each part of the dream so that I could remember it when I wake up I assume.

I was in a room, there was maybe a female there (I assume a woman or young woman with maybe light-color skin with maybe short or medium-length hair) with me who was the relaxed and fun to be around type, and I remember trying to remember each part of the dream so I was focusing trying to remember this dream before maybe the dream collapses and / or I wake up.

While I was doing this the female / woman / young woman was talking to me and out-loud to herself, she was very relaxed and at ease compared to me as I struggled to focus on remembering the various parts of the dream, and she was probably trying to help me.

Maybe this female was part of me or was a projection / representation of my subconscious in human form or was a normal dream character or something, but who knows.

She was telling me to relax and she was joking about how I looked so serious trying to focus on remembering the various parts of the dream, her talking was breaking my focus, and I probably told her that her talking was distracting me.

I started saying out-loud the various parts of the dream that I was starting to remember to myself and to the woman hoping that she and I would remember some of it, I also hoped that someone could record what I was saying out-loud because I knew that I was going to lose many of the details of the dream when I wake up, and I was losing details of the dream as I was remembering parts of it and saying those details out-loud.

Saying the details out-loud possibly actually helped me to remember some of the details that I remember now, and so that was not totally pointless.

I probably asked the woman to please try to find a way to save the details of the dream that I was saying out-loud, and then she started looking around the room when she noticed maybe a shelf with some books (maybe notebooks or something like that) that was near me.

The woman opened one of the books and she saw that the book contained details of part of the dream, and so she opened the other books to see that each book contained details about a different part of the dream so each book contained part of my memories of each part of the dream neatly organized.

So one book contained some memories of the Ghost In The Shell part of the dream, the next book contained some memories of the next part of the dream, et cetera.

The woman told me that I could stop straining myself to remember because these books already contained my memories of this dream, I asked her to read parts of each book to me, and so she did as I continued focusing on trying to remember the parts of this dream while comparing what she was reading with what I was remembering.

The details that she was reading in the books matched my details, and so I stopped trying to focus on remembering my dreams because somehow my mind had already organized my memories neatly into those books or she did it somehow.

I thought that this was interesting that my mind possibly did this on its own and that this had even happened, I started thinking about the implications of this, is it possible that our minds often hide memories (details) of our dreams in the dream themselves that we can find and read?

I probably thanked the woman and I probably went to start glancing at the books before the dream collapses, I was still thinking about all of this, and wondering if this woman was my subconscious or some other part of me or a normal dream character or if she was a third-party in my dream because she probably seemed so comfortable there like how you feel around a close family member or how you feel around yourself.

But the dream probably collapsed as I was trying to quickly glance through the books where the memories of this dream were stored while thinking about all of this and / or I woke up.

When I was trying to quickly read the books before the dream collapsed, it probably reminded me of the scene from the film Inception when the character Dom Cobb was trying to quickly read the documents that he stole from Mr. Saito’s safe before the dream collapses, but it was quiet and undramatic in my dream:

Daily Prompt

I usually do not do this but today I decided to answer the Daily Prompt on The Daily Post, called A Tale Of Two Cities, and it asked the question:

If you could split your time evenly between two places, and two places only, which would these be?

My answer is:

The real world and the dream world.

Pea Coat

Yesterday my third exchange men’s Old Navy pea coat in size large in the color heather gray, that I got on sale for $35 with free shipping back when it was on sale, arrived and it is a a bit larger/longer on me than I like but it will do unless a medium tall would work better (I am not tall, and so I doubt it); and I finally got my return shipping label for my defective (sewing flaws) men’s Sportier pea coat in size medium in the color charcoal so I sent it back yesterday for a refund, and so that should be the end of the pea coat saga for now hopefully.

Dream

I forgot all of my dreams from last night except for barely part of the end of my last dream because I kept waking up and going back to sleep and continuing the dream from where I left off each time as a result of something that kept happening in the dream, probably because I needed to urinate, and maybe because my body was ready to wake up.

I think that the end of the dream was a bit video game-like, I am not sure if I was in the dream or not or if I was experiencing things from other dream characters’ points-of-view or not, I just know that there was a man and a woman and a baby with whitish colored skin at the end of the dream; and other things that I can not remember happened before this part of the dream.

Things probably started outside during the day but then moved inside a tall metal dimly lit windowless warehouse-like building, moving between zones/areas/buildings/inside/outside involved loading screens and load times like a video game, and there were challenges and/or puzzles that you had to defeat/complete/survive before being able to move to the next area/zone.

The woman held the baby like the baby was hers and it is possible that the man with them did not even know them but I am not sure, I just know that he tried to protect them during the dream so he was doing most of the fighting/work/et cetera, and at some point they possibly completed one of the challenges inside the warehouse but then the professional wrestler Big Show was the next challenge that they needed to defeat so he attacked them.

They tried to escape Big Show by running outside the warehouse into a junkyard-like area, there was a loading screen when they did this, and when they got to the junkyard they were trapped because they were only allowed in these two zones/areas until they defeat Big Show; and so they mostly tried to run and hide from him, but eventually he would knock them unconscious and I would wake up in the real world each time that this happened but I would go right back to sleep and continue the dream where it left off like nothing happened.

It was like things would reset like when you reload a save game back to where you died, this cycle kept continuing with them getting knocked unconscious and me instantly waking up in the real world, and this became annoying because I wanted to sleep and it happened so many times and so fast at first that it took me a while to realize that something strange was going on and that what was happening in the dream kept waking me up; and so them getting knocked unconscious kept waking me up like we were connected or something like that.

I continued going back to sleep but the cycle continued so at some point I got up to finally use the bathroom because I needed to urinate badly and voice record the little bit of the dream that I could remember, unfortunately I forgot almost all of my dreams by this point, and I was never able to go back to sleep after this and it was time to get up so I stayed awake.

Flynn | A Shopping Mall | A Wrestling Match | A Woman Puts A Man In A Chokehold | An Old Business Returns?

Dream 1

I think that all of these except for the last dream were part of one dream but I can not remember because my memory is too unclear because during the parts of the dream with Flynn I thought that my dreams were recorded combined with a few other things/factors/reasons, and so my mind did not bother trying to remember most of the dream or dreams; and so I did not remember parts of the dream or dreams until I focused/thought long enough to remember a few fragments of them after waking up to use the bathroom.

All that I can remember of this dream is that it had Flynn and I in it but I can not remember if she was in the dream in person or just over the internet and I can not remember what happened during the dream exactly, but I think that somehow I thought that she had recorded/saved my dreams and/or something like that so I assumed that was taken care of for the day; and she also did something else in the dream that I can not remember, but my wild guess is that she either was writing/typing a story/book/whatever and/or she possibly had the power to create/change/destroy dream worlds but I can not remember and that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it was possibly several dreams that all took place at the same shopping mall, I remember walking around exploring this mall and there were other people there, and I remember walking into a small dessert shop and I saw my former female classmate AR and a woman with dark brownish/blackish colored skin with blackish colored hair and two kids with maybe light-to-medium brownish colored skin with medium-to-dark colored hair (a girl and a boy, and at least one of them was the kid/child of my former classmate AR) having fun trying to pick out some desserts.

There was probably only one employee in this small dessert shop (a young woman I think with light-colored skin wearing a whitish colored visor and uniform and apron with maybe a few other colors) and I remember briefly talking to my former classmate AR and the others, then I remember looking at the desserts, and then I remember leaving to continue exploring the mall; but that is all that I can remember of this dream or dreams.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this dream is that my brother GC and I were possibly in a room watching television and an entertainment wrestling match (probably a WWE wrestling match) was taking place, and there was an entertainment wrestler who looked a bit like Roman Reigns with shorter hair versus another male entertainment wrestler who was even taller and bigger than him who maybe looked a bit like Big Show; and the two of them were wrestling, and at some point the wrestler who looked a bit like Roman Reigns was about to get lifted into the air and slammed but he did a crazy/fake-looking reversal/counter.

He used the strength of the other wrestler’s lift and he pushed himself into the air flying like someone was throwing him impossibly high and far into the air, there was a steel cage around the wrestling ring but he was flying so high and far that he went over the steel cage like he was going to fly into the crowd, but he magically turned his body in the air and landed back on the top of the steel cage; and he started running along the steel cage as the crowd cheered in amazement, and it looked so fake/impossible that my brother GC and I started laughing and talking about how fake/impossible it looked in confusion/surprise/fun but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 4

All that I can remember of this dream is that I was not in the dream and that it was showing video of a situation that happened involving a taller/bigger/older-looking than average boy with dark brownish/blackish colored skin with short blackish colored hair trying to stop a man with either literally dirty tanned whitish colored skin or dirty brownish colored skin (I could not tell because he was mostly in shaded areas, and he looked like he had dirt/oil/whatever on his skin) with short hair  from committing a crime outside during a gray day in a yard near a street in a neighborhood, and an obese woman with dark brownish colored skin with blackish colored hair recorded video of most of it from the other side of the street behind a divider and sewer drain/whatever and empty parking lot made of rocks.

The man was going around committing crimes and the boy was riding a tricycle in the street near his home when he noticed the man stealing things from several yards and doing other things and so did the woman who started filming this from the parking lot as she slowly walked closer recording it for a better view, and so he told the man to stop but the man probably told him to shut up; and so the boy rode his tricycle toward the man, the man commented on how the boy looked like a grown man, and then he threatened the boy.

The boy told him to stop but the man once again refused so the boy tried to block his path so the man started punching the boy and the woman yelled for him to stop while trying to climb over the divider and sewer drain to stop him and she warned him that she was recording this and that she called the police already, but he probably knocked the boy unconscious; and then he showed that he had a blackish colored pistol in his waist.

The woman was not afraid and so the man tried to attack her but she dodged his attack and they started fighting until they reached the parking lot, and the woman was winning the fight to the man’s surprise and to my surprise and she put the man in a chokehold causing him to drop his gun and she choked him unconscious briefly and she held him until a male police officer arrived in a police car with an assault rifle ordering the man to put his hands behind his head and lay on his stomach; and I noticed the police officer looking for weapons before approaching, and observing the situation.

The woman explained the situation to the police officer after he handcuffed the man and she told him that she had video evidence of most of it, but I woke up.

Dream 5

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day in a slightly fictional version of the city of D across different parts of Eastside that I traveled to, and I talked to several people including my mom and several people who live on Eastside; and one topic that we talked about were former businesses (real and fictional businesses) that used to exist on Eastside, and we talked about some of our memories of them and so there were dream scenes of some of these memories (mostly fake memories probably from past dreams of the fictional businesses).

At some point I was at the end of the street that E Manor is on near the train tracks talking to the husband and wife who live in the house next to this area, and they told me that one of the fictional businesses was open again under new owners; and I think that the business had a name that sounded like Scoggins and/or something like that, and so I was going to go visit it but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

The end,

Trying To Walk Home & Trying To Help A Woman Escape & A Nuclear / Chemical Weapon / Bomb Explodes

I got in bed very late last night and I somewhat/almost went to sleep but I got up to use the bathroom and after that my brother GC started talking with me, and we ended up talking until 4:Something AM; and then I went to sleep, and so I only remember part of one unclear/somewhat confusing dream.

The dream maybe started in a fictional version of D on B Street where my former classmate DH’s parent’s live, actually it did not start there, I barely remember something about/involving my former classmate JC and maybe his sister JC but I can not remember that part of the dream; and I remember walking down B Street, it looked like the fictional version of B Street that is usually in my dreams, and even in the dream I had various memories of past dreams involving this fictional B Street.

The High School Banquet

Okay, I had this first dream the other night and the second dream last night.

My first dream is only a fragment and I can not remember the beginning, I just remember walking into a building that appeared to be a school gym.

The lights were dim and near the entrance were some people I went to high school with that were a few years younger than me.

I greeted them and I kept walking further into the gym to the basketball court and on the left side of the court was a room, and further past that room was an open room in the corner.
