Smartwatches & Gender Sensitization

I got in bed too late but I still had several dreams that I woke up remembering, but I went back to sleep without recording them.

My main most clear dream of that the night that I remembered is currently mostly forgotten now, it possibly partly involved a college and some other things, but I am not sure now which is unfortunate because it was a pretty clear dream and it was my main dream.


Switching Point(s)-Of-View And Gender

Dream 1

I barely remember part of three dreams that are mostly unclear and confusing, and the first dream probably took place at my parent’s house.

My parents needed help figuring out what was wrong with a computer and/or mobile phone and/or some kind of electronic device, and so they asked me for help troubleshooting the problem.

I remember looking at the device or devices and giving my opinion(s) & asking questions about it, I am not sure if I fixed it or not, I can not remember the rest of the dream.

Dream 2

The second dream is even more unclear and I remember being in an unknown field with maybe my family and various unknown people during a nice day, and I remember walking around maybe talking with people and/or observing them.

At some point I am guessing that there was a group of people in the field with a love/affair triangle/situation going on maybe, where a husband might have had an affair with a woman, and the three of them were in the field talking with some other people; and I might have somehow started seeing things from their point-of-view(s) and/or became them at certain points, and I jumped back & forth randomly between their point-of-views(s) and/or being them/as them not knowing who I was sometimes or what gender I was sometimes but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 3

The last dream took place at the husband and wife’s house from the second dream, which was a nice one floor house in an upper class neighborhood, and they would have dinner parties with their other rich neighbors several times a week at their house.

The dream jumped in time across various dinner parties where the woman who the husband might have had an affair with, started coming to the dinner parties, and once again I was jumping randomly between their points-of-view and/or being them/as them; which was once again very confusing.

I think that I was not them exactly but it almost seemed like it at times, it was like being inside their bodies but not controlling them, and it was very confusing since I would randomly jump between them.

The woman who might have had an affair with the husband probably started to openly challenge his wife over her husband, the husband denied any relationship with the woman, and the wife & the dinner party guests started to verbally be hostile to the woman when she came to the dinner parties; and eventually she was no longer allowed to attend.

Before she got banned there were various arguments/conversations/et cetera between the wife and the woman and the husband and the dinner guests, but these were very confusing since I was jumping around from person-to-person; but it seemed that the wife believed her husband, and was focusing her anger only on the other woman.

The other woman was obsessed it seemed with trying to fight over the husband and/or have the what she said was the truth known, and at some point she came back to one of the dinner parties even though she was banned.

She was greeted negatively by the wife and the dinner guests as expected, and the wife reminded her of her ban & she asked her what she wanted; but I woke up.

The end,
