It was a Wikipedia:Featured Article that was on the front page of Wikipedia today, and it caught my attention.


A French And English Television Interview

I woke up and went back to sleep several times without voice recording my dreams, and so now I can only barely remember part of one dream from last night.

At the end of the dream I remember sneaking slowly around a multi-story building during the day with a fictional famous female musician with white skin with long dark-yellow hair who was from France who somewhat reminded me of the actress Mélanie Thierry, a man with white skin with dark-hair, and maybe one or more other people.

The building seemed to be an abandoned building that possibly had various strange maybe zombie and/or paranormal and/or supernatural and/or other types of threats in the building, and so we were very cautiously moving through the building to reach the roof of the building outside.

Eventually we reached the roof outside but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream, and the very end of the dream involved the female musician from France being interviewed on television and I was watching this.

She was in France sitting at a desk alone in a studio mimicking a television presenter or news presenter (host), like the one who was interviewing her, and a tall male host with white skin with dark-hair wearing a nice navy suit who looked like he was from the 1960s was interviewing her from a separate studio behind a desk in the United States so they were in separate countries having this interview in separate studios using a screen to see and hear each other.

The interview started in French with the male host talking loudly and slowly in what sounded like very poor French that was so bad that it did not even sound much like French, the female musician mimicked him and spoke loudly and slowly but in good French because that was her native language, and I remember the host struggling and stopping sometimes trying to figure out how to say certain things in French.

The musician slowly started using English along with French until eventually she started speaking only English, her English was much better than his French, and so now they could both communicate well.

The musician was having fun and was doing great, she only struggled with a few English words and phrases, and she continued to mimic the host by talking loud and slow.

I remember the host asking the musician questions about her music, France, about how she could speak English so well, her career, and more but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Some Children Trying To Sell Some Things To Me

This morning my dreaming and sleep got interrupted by something strange happening to my body so I forgot most of my dreams, this strangeness prevented me from going back to sleep, and then I got up trying to figure out what was happening and trying to stay calm and it was a strange combination of feelings and reactions going on with my body that I do not feel like wasting time trying to explain because is not easy to explain and I do not feel like it.

But I will say that it involved my head (brain), stomach, chest, heart, maybe eyes, et cetera.

I came close to thinking about going to the emergency room but I managed to start recovering after I did some burpees to test whether I was having a heart attack and/or dying, after passing the test I started to feel a bit better, and I walked around until I recovered enough to go back to sleep.

I am not sure what happened but it felt like a combination of: maybe a reaction to something that I ate or drank and I did not rinse the toothpaste out of my mouth before going to sleep last night, possible congestion in my head, panic attack, and a few other things; but who knows.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that it possibly took place somewhere in Africa but I am not sure, I remember a man with very dark-brownish or blackish colored skin with short dark-colored hair, and he spoke English with an African accent of some kind.

The dream took place during the day and we were probably outside, this dream was probably partly inspired by part of a film (maybe Hotel Rwanda) that my dad was watching part of last night that had the actor Don Cheadle in it; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that it took place during the day outside, I was returning to my parent’s yard on foot, and at the main double gates I was greeted by some fictional children in the neighborhood who were trying to sell me something that I can not remember; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that it possible was partly inspired by the video game Fallout 4, I was doing something in the dream that was similar to something involving settlements in that game but I can not remember what, but then my dream and sleep got interrupted by something strange happening to my body that almost seemed like I was dying and I came close to thinking about going to the emergency room.

On Vacation And Being Afraid Of People With Superpowers

All that I can remember of this dream is that most of my family and I, except for my brother CC and his family, seemed to be on maybe vacation.

We met a person (maybe a woman with whitish colored skin with medium-length brownish colored hair) who had special abilities (superpowers, powers), and at some point we left and we were trying to avoid this person (her) like we were afraid of this person.

I remember us going to another city to stay at a house-like hotel with a whitish and grayish colored interior during the day, I remember that we seemed to be sharing a large suite with several other people, and some of these people also had powers.

One of these people with powers was a man with whitish colored skin with brownish colored hair who was from The United Kingdom and who spoke English with an accent from somewhere in The United Kingdom, and during the dream he showed us some of his powers.

He was not even sure how many powers that he had, he seemed to be constantly finding out that he had more powers by trying to do different things, and so during the dream he kept discovering more powers that he had.

At some point the man talked with my mom and it seemed that he started to be interested in my mom, and then I remember my family and I leaving to avoid him like we were afraid of him and we were also still trying to avoid the person (woman) from earlier in the dream who also had powers.

We seemed to be afraid that both of them were after us so we ran outside to a ditch-like river near a road and a clearing between a forest, the river led to a lake that had a forest behind it, and this area looked nice with green grass.

We were in such a rush to escape or hide that we did not think that we had time to reach our automobiles or we decided to hide first before trying to leave in them, we considered swimming down the river into the lake and then escaping or hiding in the forest, but we followed the sides of the river first to hide and check the area before making a decision.

The man did not seem to be following us as we hid so we started thinking about what we should do, but I woke up.
