Satya Nadella Doing A Customer Service Visit

I went to bed very late again last night and I slept well and I had some pretty clear dreams, but somehow I ended up forgetting all but the end of my last dream from last night.

The end of the dream took place during the day and I was inside my parent’s house when I looked out of the window toward The G House, and I noticed that my male cousin DE had many boxes of stuff inside the house and maybe some outside on the back porch like someone had given him a lot of free stuff and/or he bought some of it himself.

Most of the boxes had coloring (red, maybe green, maybe gold and/or yellow, et cetera) and text that was possibly in a Chinese style like most of the boxes had come from an Oriental Market (Asian Supermarket) and/or Chinese restaurant, and my cousin DE seemed slightly more stable than usual but still not stable.

Surprisingly my cousin DE told my family that we could go to The G House and get some of the boxes while he is gone because there was way too much for him to ever use, my family thanked him, and then my cousin DE walked away smiling unstably to walk somewhere (maybe to a store to get more cigarettes and alcoholic beverages).

While my cousin DE was away, I am not sure if my family walked over to The G House or not to get some boxes of stuff, and all that I can remember later in the dream is being in my parent’s living room when I heard my dad talking to someone outside the back door.

I opened the back door to see who my dad was talking to and to my surprise he was talking to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Microsoft Mr. Satya Nadella, and Mr. Nadella was doing in-person customer service trying to help my dad troubleshoot a problem with a Microsoft device (maybe his mobile phone, a Nokia Lumia 635, but I can not remember).

They were standing outside the back door on the wooden boards that I walk on almost every day during my daily walks, it was a nice day outside, and I walked on the back steps to see if I could help; and I was surprised to see the CEO of Microsoft doing in-person customer service at my parent’s house.

Mr. Nadella was trying to explain things to my dad and I remember him writing down some of his directions on a piece of paper with a pencil, he wrote down a certain Microsoft website, and he wanted my dad to go to this website and download and run a certain file (I can not remember the name of the file) with a strange file format and filename extension at the end that was .MAN which is not a file format or filename extension that I have heard of before.

My dad is not computer literate or good with modern technology so I decided to do this for him, I invited Mr. Nadella inside the living room going over his directions, and asking him some questions and giving him some feedback about Microsoft and its products and services and its past and present and future et cetera while also trying to show off my knowledge and skills as I stood at my desktop computer following his directions to download that .MAN file from a Microsoft website; but I woke up as I was doing this.

The end,

A Magical Job Adventure

I remember part of one of my dreams from last night, which took place during the day at a fictional version of my old job in a fictional area, and I had been called & asked to return to my job; and there seemed to be new management and everything was different.

I was hesitant to return but they convinced me that things were different now, and so I decided to give it a try.

My work area was the first work area near a courtyard on the left side and a parking lot on the right side, and a covered catwalk connected it to other parts of the building complex.

I can not remember what the inside of my work area looked like or who I worked with or what my job was, but I do remember getting a call from the office at some point; and they told me that the manager/CEO/owner/whoever wanted to talk with me, and so I stepped outside to go to the office but the manager/CEO/owner/whoever was standing under the catwalk waiting to greet me.

The CEO (I will just use this since it is shorter) looked like Vice President Joe Biden, he greeted me, and we walked to the courtyard to my surprise; and we sat down.

The CEO was nice and he told me that one of the reasons that he chose me to return to my job was that I had worked several times in the same job and that my records showed that I was a good worker, and he thought that I would be helpful for the company with my experience & good work.

The CEO seemed to greet all of his new workers, but then he told me the main reason that he wanted to talk with me; and he showed me a medical report of my preliminary drug test I guess, which was written in hard to read doctor writing like in real life.

He said that a certain chemical or drug, one that I never heard of before & that I could barely understand some of the handwriting to see how it was spelled, was high in my test, which was not good; and that even though he liked me and wanted me to work with the company, due to the rules he could not hire anyone if they do not pass the drug test.

He told me that he would purposely stall the official drug test for a few weeks, to give me time to get my levels normal again, and I told him that I was not on any medicine & was not taking any drugs & that I had never heard of that chemical or drug before & I had not idea how that got in my body.

I asked him how could that chemical or drug get in my body without me knowing it, he named several possible ways, one was old and/or contaminated drinking water (I drink beaucoup of water); and I told him that I would try to figure it out and get things normal again for the official drug test.

The CEO told me that he believed me and that he was sure that things would go well, and he reminded me that he would purposely stall the official drug test as long as he could to give me time; and then he said goodbye and walked away back to his office.

I stood there in shock about the drug test and about how nice the CEO was & how he was going to stall the official drug test for me, and I wanted to go to the doctor soon to figure out how that chemical or drug was in my body.

I returned to my work area but at some point I decided to ask to go to the office to talk to the CEO about taking the day off to go to the doctor, and so I went to the office; and unlike in real life or most of my dreams of my former job, the office was open for everyone to enter; the entire environment was beaucoup better than how things used to be in real life & in most of my dreams of my old job.

In the office were a few secretary work areas with desks, a conference table in the lobby area near the secretary work areas so conferences were in the open, and the management had small offices in the main office; and so things were a lot more open and comfortable, and management was not completely locked away from the workers like in real life or like in most of my dreams of my old job.

To my surprise a big meeting was talking place in the office with high level people, news reporters, politicians, business people, and I saw a man who looked like Chris Hedges sitting at the conference table; and so all the management was busy, including the CEO, who looked like Joe Biden (maybe he was Joe Biden, I am not sure).

I decided to wait until there was a break, so that I could talk to the CEO, and at some point there was a break; and I remember asking the man who looked like Chris Hedges if he was Mr. Hedges, and he said yes & we had a brief conversation.

I then went to talk to the CEO, but something happened, I am not sure what happened; but I think that there was an attack by something that was like a Dragon Priest from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim video game, and it had powers.

I think that someone told us that there were nine of the Dragon Priest-like beings scattered around the World, and that we needed to hunt them each down; and so several people & I left during the attack to hunt down the other Dragon Priest-like beings.

I think that we killed two or more of the Dragon Priest-like beings during our adventure around the World, each one was tough, and so we had to use guerrilla warfare; and each fight was long.

At some point we returned to my job but the building looked like something had used its power to change the appearance of the buildings to look a bit dark, foggy, ancient, and like stone & Dwarven metal; and so we sneaked around cautiously, and we split up into teams.

The building complex seemed abandoned and mostly empty now, my team of three people and I sneaked into what looked like a break room, that was connected to a smaller room; but then we heard two female voices, and so we ducked silently in the open & somewhat dark & foggy room since we did not have anything to hide behind.

Two tall women who were probably taller than any of us with whitish colored skin entered the room who looked like they probably had powers, they looked beautiful like they were immortal or did not age, they looked Royal or Bene Gesserit-like like The Woman (Lady) In White who knocked me out of one of my dreams once, they wore old style dresses or robes like The Woman In White probably, they probably had long hair too, and one of the women seemed to be the mother of the other woman; and they were looking for someone, probably someone like them, I am not sure if they were Human or not, but they looked Human except for being taller than average & they looked a bit too flawless.

The daughter who looked to be about my age (but who I felt was much older, probably hundreds of years old) stayed to search the room that we were in & the smaller room, while the mother left to search somewhere else, but oddly they did not see us even though we were silently ducked down in the open room that was only slightly dark & foggy.

The daughter walked right next to us calling out the name of whoever they were looking for, we stayed quiet & we did not move, and strangely she still did not see us; it was like she had a blind spot or she could not detect you if you did not move or her height & the fact that she was not looking down prevented her from seeing us.

Once she walked into the smaller room, I told the other people with me to go search the rest of the building complex to see if anyone else was there & then report back to me, and I was going to take out the daughter while they did that; and so they left, and I got in position to ambush the daughter from behind.

I noticed that in the smaller room there was a person with long blond colored hair sleeping on a bed who looked a bit like an adult version of the bully Michel from the Hancock film, I am not sure if it was a man or woman, but the daughter did not seem to notice the sleeping person since the bed was below her field of vision & the person was not moving; and so I decided to quietly attack the daughter before she could turn around.

I grabbed the daughter from behind by her mouth with one hand to prevent her from screaming and I grabbed her by the throat with my other hand to try to choke her unconscious and/or kill her, and then I move her to the ground with my grappling skills; my attack was so successful that she did not even get to see who I was, she could not even fight back, she could not scream, but I did not have my hand in the correct position to choke her unconscious so I was at risk of breaking part of her neck and I could feel the bone or boney part of her neck.

I started to feel uncomfortable/awkward, like I was a rapist or murder or something, and so I stopped choking her but I kept my hand over her mouth; and I told her that I was not going to kill her or hurt her, and that I was not sure if she was working with the Dragon Priest-like being or not & that we had not expected anyone else to be there.

I told her that I would remove my hand from her mouth if she did not scream, she agreed, and so I removed my hand from her mouth but I still was holding her on the ground so that she could not escape or attack me; I was still behind her, so she could not see me, and I could not see her face & I had my back on the wall & I was hiding us behind a bookshelf in case her mom or the Dragon Priest-like being came into the room.

So I sat there holding her waiting for my team to return, I forgot to mention that during my attack the person on the bed woke up a bit but went back to sleep, since my attack was quiet; and oddly I started to feel a bit comfortable/connected/attracted with/to the daughter as we sat there on the floor hiding behind the bookshelf, but then my team returned.

My team said that the Dragon Priest-like being was on his way to the room that was connected to the room that we were in, and so we prepared to ambush him; but I was still holding the daughter as I moved into position to support my team if needed while holding the daughter & watching the sleeping person to make sure that they did not interfere, I was literally holding her in my arms now, she seemed to be a bit embarrassed/humbled/depressed that a normal Human like me was able to so easily defeat her.

The Dragon Priest-like being (who I think had fire powers or a fire cloak), this one looked more like a normal Human man than the other ones we had fought, entered the room; and my team ambushed him, and quickly he gave up (the other ones would attack us on sight and they probably did not talk or talk much & they never gave up like this one did), and my team started to bring him into the smaller room but the mother walked into the room.

To my surprise the Dragon Priest-like being and the mother talked rationally & non-violently, and they all came into the smaller room to talk about the situation & the person on the bed woke up & joined the conversation as well; and we all sat at a table in the room, but the daughter was laying sideways in my lap still in a somewhat depressed mood as I sat at the table.

The conversation was peaceful and good, but the daughter and I started to have our own conversation as the others talked, as the daughter laid sideways in my lap with part of her body resting on some of the chairs; and I remember part of our conversation:

The Daughter: You are fortunate to be a mortal.

Me: Huh? I am not sure about that, but maybe, if I am mortal are you an immortal?

The Daughter: Yes.

Me: Interesting, but what is so great about being mortal like me or what is so bad about being immortal like you? *I predicted that one of her answers would be that watching people you care about grow old & die while you stay the same is hard to deal with, and maybe also watching the World change so much and/or boredom.*

The Daughter: *Like I predicted one of her responses was:*: It is hard watching people you love/care about/know grow old & die. *And she mentioned a few other things that I can not remember.*

Me: I imagine that can be hard, but I imagine that you somewhat learn to deal with it or accept it, and I still do not see what is so great about being mortal like me; but maybe you are right.

Me: So for example, if we got married, I would grow old & die, while you would not age or die?

The Daughter: Yes.

Me: So how old are you?

The Daughter: 1,500 years old (I think, it was between 1,200 – 2,500).

Me: Wow! You are older than I expected, I was thinking between 500 – 1,000 years old, you look great for a super senior citizen. *Laughs*

But I woke up as we were still having our good conversation.

My Former Job Again | Two Women From Russia | An Ambush | A Story Of Rape

Source: Wikimedia Commons

Last night I had several dreams that were about fictional versions of my former job, with the first dream starting with my mom telling me that my former job was hiring, and that she wanted to apply for a job there & she wanted me to apply for a job there.

I did not want to return to that job but since my mom wanted to finally start working again, I decided that I would at least try it once, and so we both applied for a job there.

Next I remember going to a fictional version of the building of my former job with my mom, and there seemed to be an open house taking place where the management were talking to people, and most of the workers were gone since they had the day off if they wanted the day off.

My mom and I were not sure which department that we were supposed to work in, and we explored the building, which was really several different buildings that were connected.

The building had a large cafeteria, several different departments, and we found a strange new department that was not opened yet that appeared to be a place for new-born babies & it looked like a baby ward at a hospital or a strange science lab or something with equipment designed for holding babies & caring for babies; and we even found another area where some workers could sleep, since there were beds.

At some point we found the only department with workers in it and there were only two female workers there one with blond colored hair, the other with darker colored hair (who I recognized & who I somehow knew), and I somehow knew that they both were from Russia (Russian) (even before they told us).

The woman with darker colored hair did most of the talking and I somehow felt that I knew her from in real life and/or from another dream, but now that I am awake I can not remember ever seeing her before in a dream or in real life, but in the dream I somehow felt that I knew her & that we had met before & I knew that she was from Russia even before she started to speak.

Both women did not seem very comfortable speaking English, it was like they rarely spoke English, and that they probably spoke Russian most of the time; they both spoke English in a strange slow pattern/rhythm that was unusual & a bit harder to understand since I was not used to anyone talking like that & they made grammar mistakes sometimes, but I was able to predict & guess what they were going to say usually & what they were saying at times usually & I was able to understand them most of the time.

They did not speak with much of an accent surprisingly and I was able to understand them usually, but I had to adjust to their strange slow pattern/rhythm of talking, which was very unusual but it was clear, just unusual; but I am pretty good at that, and so it was not a problem.

The woman with the darker colored hair did most of the talking, and she explained to my mom and I about how they were having problems with a new process that involved mirrors or something; and since the management was busy with the open house, the two women were just working on their old project/process instead, and so they tried to explain that process to us.

They said that the company had a high turnover rate, which is true in real life too, and so there were not many workers who had advanced knowledge & there were not many workers who could even train new workers because most people quit their jobs so fast.

So the two women’s only training would come in the form of rare & brief examples given by the now CEO and/or one of the few veteran workers, and the two women seemed to work alone with only each other most of the time & so they did not seem to get much exposure to English while at work & that also made it harder for them to understand the brief directions given by the CEO and/or one of the veteran workers.

The two women were nice and they were either best friends or sisters, who had grown up together in Russia probably, and their dad still lived in Russia.

The two women seemed to have a lower-income and they both appeared to be in the lower class like me, and they were hard workers who worked as many hours as they could get; that is why they were working on a day that they could have had off, they needed the money & they were hard & reliable workers.

We all got along very well and we all lived similar more practical lifestyles that allowed us to live a pretty good life for low-income & lower class people, and so we all really could relate to each other.

After work we offered the two women a ride, since they had no automobile and they either would walk, ride with another worker, or take the bus or something.

The two women invited us to join them at a small place that offered free food & drink to the community, and so we all went to this small place; and we sat down in a small living room eating & drinking, and we had a good time talking, playing board games & cards, et cetera.

It was a wonder place to meet other people and it seemed that the two women had learned most of their English by talking with people there, and the two women seemed more relaxed at this place & so were my mom & I since my former job has a terrible working environment.

The more we talked the better I could understand the two women and/or the better their English got, and I remember being interested in learning more about the two women; and I remember the woman with the darker colored hair doing an impression of her dad, who would keep in contact with them by phone and he would come to The United States from Russia to visit them sometimes; he seemed to be a loving father who cared about his kids, based on her impressions of him.

To my surprise the woman talked with a stereotypical Southern Country Hillbilly type English accent when she would do an impression of how her dad spoke English, and I thought that it was funny that her dad supposedly spoke that way, even though he lives in Russia; and I wondered how did her dad learned that English accent and/or I wondered if the woman was just incorrectly doing an impression of her dad since her style of English was strange.

The woman talked about how her dad would call and/or visit them worrying about their safety & well-being, and they would tell him that he did not have to come in person so often since they already speak often by phone and they wanted him to save his money; her impression made her dad sound like a funny, loving, goofy, loud, and slightly protective father who cared about his kids & who wanted to keep in close contact with them.

The woman also mentioned her last name or the nickname/short version of her last name, and I think that it sounded something like Ching/Chang/?-Li(Lee) or Ching/Chang/?-A-Li(Lee) or something almost like that, but I can not remember exactly, which was her dad’s last name & she inherited that last name from him.

We had a good time talking, eating, drinking, playing games, laughing, doing impressions, et cetera.

The next thing that I remember is waking up the next day at a fictional home and my mom told me that we should go to work, even though we did not know if we had the jobs or not and/or what our jobs would be, but I did not want to go back because I had seen the now CEO during the open house & many bad memories came back to me about him & the job & the working environment there; even though I enjoyed working & talking with the two women, and so I told my mom that she could go alone, and I wished her good luck.

After she left a large work truck for the company stopped in front of our house, and inside of it were the driver and the two women, and they asked me why hadn’t I come to work yet; and so I told the about the situation.

They told me that the now CEO said that the materials used during the mirror process or whatever, were flawed, and that is why they were having problems with the mirror process; and so they were sent to load all the supposedly flawed materials on the company truck, and they were sent with the driver as manual laborers to return the supposedly flawed materials back to where they had bought them.

The two women were not convinced that the materials were flawed, they thought that the process was flawed from the lack of knowledge on how to properly complete the process, but they were going to follow the orders of the now CEO anyway; and it seemed that he used the two women to do the jobs that other workers did not want to do, since they were reliable & hard workers who were probably not going to quit like most people there did/would.

After they drove off, the next thing that I remember is the two women somehow convinced me to come to work, and so we went to work but the area looked like a war zone; and some workers quickly rushed us into the building, and they gave us a quick overview of the situation.

A war seemed to be going on between the company and a group of people who reminded me of a Native American tribe combined with Caesar’s Legion and/or a Raider Group from the Fallout: New Vegas video game (they barely wore any clothes and they wore face paint), and some of the veteran workers with military experience were supposed to start training us to defend against the people attacking the company; and they gave us some guns & I got a light machine gun.

The veteran workers were older men who had fought in war before, and then they opened the door to the building and the General made the comment/asked: “Did I just open the door to the front lines?” and one of the other officers answered: “Yes sir, you did.” and then the General told us to go outside.

We thought that we were going outside for a training exercise, but the General and the other officers stayed in the building & they closed & they locked the door leaving us outside alone; and suddenly the damaged buildings on both sides of us had people stand up at the many windows, and they started to shoot guns & bow & arrows at us, it was an ambush.

I ran forward shooting at the buildings on my left side & my right side for suppressing fire with my light machine gun to hopefully allow some of us to escape alive and the two women & one man followed me, while the other workers ran for cover and/or got shot.

It was a worst-case-scenario where we were outnumbered, ambushed, we were untrained, our enemy were skilled at guerrilla combat, we were flanked on both sides & the enemy had plenty of cover, we did not have proper cover, and we basically were easy targets.

I ran forward shooting left & right as bullets & arrows flew by us, I got shot in my back with an arrow that fortunately did not go deep enough to hit my spine but it caused me pain & a bit of weakness & I might have gotten shot by a bullet or two, the man with us got shot by automatic weapon fire but he kept running too, and my strategy seemed to be working good enough so that the four of us would escape at least; but the others would die, and the man with us was dying.

We escaped across a field to a neighborhood, but the two women had to stop to help carry the man with us who was dying & he was too weak to walk on his own due to blood loss, but he told us to leave him & save ourselves; but we refused and we told him that we would not leave him to die.

We had run out of bullets, we had run out of arrows (we took one or more bow & arrows during the battle), and so I stopped to find us some weapons as the two women helped the dying man; and I found a few sticks & baseball bats, and I gave each person one or more of them.

A few attackers were running across the field to catch us and one or more of them reached us, and we had to kill them in a quick mêlée & hand-to-hand combat fight; and then we started trying to move the dying man before more attackers found us.

The next thing that I remember is being back inside the company building, but it was no longer a war zone, and all of us workers were gathered in the large cafeteria eating & drinking & we were actually having a good time; and we were supposed to be having a meeting of some kind after we finished eating & drinking.

I remember talking with the two women and then an older man with long white/gray hair recognized me as a fellow veteran worker, and he was one too; and he used to have short hair, at least that is what I said & what I remembered in the dream, even though I do not know him in real life but I recognized him in the dream & he recognized me.

I told him that this was my fourth time working with the company, and then we started to talk, but a woman with short black hair & whitish colored skin entered the cafeteria; and she called everyone to attention.

She looked serious and she seemed like a former soldier and/or mercenary and/or agent and/or spy and/or something; and she walked in front of the cafeteria & she presented a screen & she started to project a video as she explained a past situation from her life.

She told us that years ago she was once working undercover on a job and she started to investigate a rape case that involved a rich business man or a rich man in a position of power, and she showed us some video of what happened as she explained it to us.

She had decided to investigate the case on her own because the man had managed to avoid the justice system and she wanted to bring the man to justice, and one day she sneaked into his mansion & she had found the evidence that she needed to prove that he & his bodyguards/hitmen had raped one or more women.

But in the video she got caught trying to sneak out with the evidence by the man & his bodyguards/hitmen, and they raped, beat, tortured her, and they probably destroyed the evidence in front of her as they assaulted her on a bed.

She was a tough woman but even she could not beat ten élite trained bodyguards/hitmen alone and in the video they all held her down as the men taunted her, beat her, raped her, and tortured her; it was hard to watch and we wondered why was she showing us this video & telling us about it.

The video ended and she then told us something, but I forgot what, and then she said that she was in charge of security & internet communications or something like that for the company now & she said something else that I forgot & she warned us about something that I forgot; and she warned us that who ever did whatever she had warned us about, that she would hunt them down by tracking their e-mail and/or online activities and/or whatever, and she would be their friend for the rest of their lives (which probably was code for, she would stalk/keep an eye on you for the rest of your life or something like that probably).

She then walked out of the cafeteria as the rest of us sat there confused and shocked at what she had shown & told us; but then I woke up.

The end,

Battestar Galactica The Secret Mission

Source: Wikipedia

Last night I only remembered part of my last dream, which took place inside some unknown military / civilian building.

I can not remember the beginning of the dream, but I do remember being called to an office with two soldiers guarding the outside of the office.

Inside the small, simple, and slightly dark office was William Adama from Battlestar Galactica; him and his office looked practical & simple like you would expect.

I told him that it was a pleasure to meet him and he shook my hand, and he asked me to have a seat.

He told me that he had chosen me and few other people for a secret mission, but sadly he could not tell me more about it except that it was dangerous & there was a high chance that we might die.

He said that we had to decide if we wanted to go or not, so I told him that since he felt that I qualified for the mission that I would go, and that I would do my best.

He shook my hand and thanked me for accepting the mission, and said good luck & that will be all; so I left the office wondering what this mission was supposed to be about.

The next thing I remember is being in a helicopter/plane like the Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey with a team of maybe 19 other people; there was Apollo (Lee Adama), Starbuck (Kara Thrace), Helo (Karl Agathon), Sharon “Athena” Agathon (Number Eight), The Chief (Galen Tyrol), some other soldiers, some people I used to work with, and some other unknown civilians.

The helicopter/plane landed in an area that was dirt that was surrounded by a metal wall of junk metal like at a junkyard, and it had a small shack-like building with no door in the dirt area & the junk metal wall had one entrance/exit door.

We all got out and the helicopter/plane left, for some reason we only had basic camping supplies and no weapons or armor except a few knives & walking sticks.

Apollo seemed to be in charge, Starbuck seemed to be second in command, and Helo seemed to be third in command.

Apollo then ordered some of the group to set up a camp and ordered another group to secure the area & go look for guns & ammunition.

Helo was in charge of the group that went to secure the area & look for weapons/ammunition, and I joined his group.

We went out of the one door that left the dirt area and snuck around looking for any threats first; I had the feeling that there were raiders, maybe some cylons, and maybe some super mutants around some where.

The outside area was like a junk yard or a destroyed city or something, and things were pretty quiet.

After a while we found a raider camp but the raiders were not there so we started to look for weapons, ammunition, and other supplies.

We found some guns & ammunition so we all got a gun, but the group of raiders came back and a shoot out began.

I started putting all the guns, ammunition, and other supplies in bags while the fighting was going on.

I grabbed the bag of guns and ammunition, I told the others to each grab a bag & bring it back to the camp when they finish fighting, and I ran back to the camp to give the guns & ammunition to the others.

When I made it back to the camp everyone was surprised and excited that we had found guns & ammunition, but they wanted to keep it a secret; I had the feeling the entire time that we were not supposed to have guns for this mission, but no one had even explained what our mission was yet.

In the bag were a lot of pistols, a few shotguns, some submachine guns, and a few compact assault rifles.

The rest of my team made it back with a few more supplies, and that night we all had a celebration.

My whole team or Helo’s team was the center of attention, and we were treated like heroes, especially me for bringing all the guns during the fighting.

We all talked, ate, and drank by a camp fire;  we had fun and it was a nice experience.

My team got to sleep inside of the shack-like building, some of the others slept outside, and some people had guard duty protecting the entrance/exit & the dirt area.

The next day Apollo and the other leaders had a private meeting; they seemed to know more than the rest of us but would not tell us about the mission, they would just issue orders, and I had the feeling that maybe even they did not know what the real mission was; but I did feel that they knew that we were not supposed to have guns.

Apollo ordered one group to divide the supplies we had found so they could be rationed for the next few days, and he ordered Helo’s/my team to go scout the area for more threats & find more supplies.

So our team left once again, and we went to the raider camp to look for any supplies that we had missed.

As we were looking for more supplies we saw another group of raiders in the distance setting up camp under a tree in a field-like area, we were using binoculars so they were pretty far away & they could not see us.

Helo said that him and some of our team would stay to watch the raiders, while me and the others take the rest of the supplies back to the camp.

So me and a few others took the rest of the supplies back to the camp, but we noticed there were more people guarding the entrance/exit, like something had happened.

The guards at the entrance/exit told us that a group of cylons had attacked while we were gone, and that they had captured one of the cylons & I think Starbuck was interrogating it; so the two members of my team stayed to help guard the entrance/exit while I went to see what was going on.

I went into the shack-like building, which now had a curtain for a door because it used to not have a door, and inside Starbuck was interrogating a male human-like cylon that was tied up in a chair.

Starbuck shot it in the leg, and I told her to stop & that torture was against our beliefs.

She told me that she knew what she was doing and that I needed to shut up & let her do her job, and that it was a machine so it was not torture.

Then Starbuck started to beat the cylon with a pistol while asking it questions.

After that she started to waterboard the cylon (dipping its head in a bucket of water), but it still would not talk.

I made a few negative comments about what she was doing and I was about to try to stop her, but she had her whole team of soldiers protecting her.

So I told Apollo to stop this since he was in charge, but he said that even though it seemed bad, he felt that it was necessary & that Starbuck knew what she was doing.

I told him that the end does not justify the means, but he told me that he disagreed, and I left the room angry & went outside.

I went outside to calm down, and to think about the situation.

After a few minutes Starbuck called me back inside so I asked her what she wanted, but she just stared at me with a straight face while pointing a pistol at the cylon.

All this time she was trying to get information from the cylon, and she especially wanted to know if anyone in our group was a cylon or not since some cylons look like humans.

Suddenly she shot the cylon in the head while looking at me, and so I yelled at her asking her why she did that.

She said it/he was no longer of any use to her, and then she pointed the pistol at me.

I asked her what was she doing, I told her that I was John the guy that helped bring the guns & supplies back to the camp, and that I was not a cylon; as far as I knew.

She told the soldiers to un-tie the dead cylon, and then she kicked him out of the chair & told me to sit in the chair, and told the soldiers to tie me up.

She then started to yell questions at me like she had done to the cylon, she seemed to think that I was a cylon now, everyone else in the room just watched looking somewhat surprised; but they trusted Starbuck.

I decided to stay relaxed and answer Starbuck’s questions rationally hoping to get her to relax, but she was very angry.

She then pointed the pistol at me and asked me if I knew who the other cylons where, I said no, and so she shot at my leg.

The bullets tipped the side of my leg, and so I said loudly again that I did not know & that I was not a cylon; but she still did not believe me.

So she shot me in the leg in the upper part of my thigh, which hurt and made me feel weak, and I was tied up; so all I could do was bend my head down in pain & I started to breathe heavily.

I screamed that I was a human & I told them that the red blood coming out of my leg proved it, and that I did not know anything about the cylons; she then prepared to hit me with the pistol, but we heard the helicopter/plane coming.

Everyone panicked because we had guns, so I told everyone to just put the guns & ammunition in the bag, and hide it in the shack-like building.

Starbuck un-tied me and Apollo told everyone to not mention the guns or ammunition or torture to anyone.

I was hurt and weak, so I told everyone to go & I would hide the guns and ammunition, and get on the helicopter/plane last.

So I did that and then I got on the helicopter/plane; and the next thing I remember is being back inside the unknown military/civilian building.

Admiral Adama was personally thanking each one of us separately and maybe giving us a reward; he did not seem to know about the guns, ammunition, the torture, how I got wounded, or even about how Starbuck thought that I was a cylon.

He thanked me for my service and bravery, and sent me to recover at the medical wing of the building.

The medical wing was a large room with lots of bunk beds, and there were mostly women there.

Most of the people were either younger or older than me, and the oldest women appeared to be the nurses/caretakers.

There were a few kids and some teenagers, some were sick & dying and some seemed to be orphans.

One of the dying kids looked like a younger version of Athena, and I think Athena actually came to visit her sometimes, so I guess she was her daughter.

None of the people I went on the mission with, besides Athena, came to the medical wing, and none of them came to visit me or apologize; even Athena pretended not to notice me.

I spent most of my time just laying in bed watching and listening to the others talk.

Not far from me was a young woman about age 16-18, her and the older women were the only people who tried to talk to me, but I did not talk back much.

I was weak, in pain, and felt abandoned; but they kept trying to cheer me up anyway.

One day a woman who appeared to be about age 27-30, that looked somewhat sick because of how her eyes looked, came to visit the kids in the medical wing.

The older women said that the woman was the CEO of the company that owned the building, this part of the dream is unclear but I will try to type what I think happened.

The CEO, as I will call her, had average length brown hair, whitish colored skin, and her eyes looked somewhat tired which made her look slightly sick but she looked average & seemed nice.

She came in the room and started to greet & talk to the dying & sick kids, and she looked across the room at me several times.

She looked at me like she wanted to tell me something, knew me, or was interesting in learning more about me, it was strange.

I thought she was going to walk across the room to talk to me, but she seemed unsure about what she should do/say and/or she was shy, so she continued to talk with the kids.

I think she started to talk with the kids and the older women about how she could heal these kids and maybe even make them immortal, but she would let them decide if they wanted it or not.

The older women did not like the idea, but did not want the kids to die.

I wondered was this woman a vampire or something, I just remember Athena asking the CEO to heal her daughter, so she did.

But I think she bit her, which would give her a virus, but the virus would heal her & make her immortal like a vampire; except I do not think it was the same thing as vampirism.

I think she just had a virus that just made you immortal and that you did not need to drink people’s blood or anything like that, and this virus was probably passed/spread through body fluids.

Athena’s daughter started to wake up and started to look healthy again, it was amazing.

I think a few other kids wanted to be healed, so the CEO healed/infected them too, the rest were not ready to be immortal or did not want to be; so the CEO left.

As she was leaving she stopped at the door and looked across the room at me again, but then she left.

The older women started to debate about the situation, they did not like it because it reminded them of vampires and evil things too much, but they were glad that some of the kids were now healed.

Later they started talking about a dance/ball that was going to take place, and they told me that all the people I went on the mission with would be there, but I did not want to go.

They started talking about who would be a good match to go to the dance together, and stuff like that.

I just laid there in bed still weak, slightly in pain, and thinking negatively about the people who I had went on the mission with.

But then the older women started to talk about who might make a good match for me to go to the dance with, and they asked me if there was woman who I was interested in or dating at that time.

I told them that I was single and looking, and I did not want to talk about who I was interested in.

One of the women suggested the CEO, but as soon as she said that the young woman who had a bunk bed not far from me started to talk loudly about how that was a terrible idea.

She started to say negative things about the CEO such as: that she was rich, would not like someone like me, and then she started to laugh like she was trying to hide something.

I started to wonder if she hated the CEO and/or if she liked me or something, and I wondered what was wrong with her.

I then told the older women that I would go take a walk and that I may try to find the CEO to talk to her, they were excited & wished me luck.

I then started to slowly walk with a walking stick through the building hoping to find the CEO, but I did not find her, and so I went outside to get some fresh air.

The outside area looked like my neighborhood, so I walked past my grandfather’s house and saw my friend DH & my brother CC.

I started to tell them about my situation, but they did not seem to really listen, so I stopped talking about it.

As we walked to my parent’s house I noticed that the dance/ball was taking place at the house next to my parent’s house.

As I walked inside my parent’s house I noticed a group of the people who I went on the mission with waving at me to come over to the party, but I just waved back & shook my head no.

I then walked into the house annoyed, but I woke up.

The end,
