Endless Elevators | Mr. Wednesday’s Plan

Dream 1

This dream took place during the day & I was returning to a college that I had not been to in maybe a month so that I could go to class, there was a fighting tournament taking place as well, but many of the fighters were getting taken out (attacked) before they could even reach the tournament.

The college campus was pretty big with multi-story buildings, I thought that my class was on a second floor, I was not sure, but I tried to make my way there; and I was wearing dress clothes.

Bad Babysitting | A Rooster Teeth-Like Library | A Movie With Jesus And Jean-Claude Van Damme?

Dream 1

This dream involved my parents, a husband and wife with light-color skin, and I talking and looking at video footage of several videos cameras that they had setup in their home.

The husband and wife paid some company or something to babysit their children and to maybe do housework whenever they go somewhere, and as we were looking at the live video footage across several cameras we noticed their daughter who was a toddler with light-color skin walking alone around the house.

The little girl looked like she was chewing on something and no one was watching her, and so I entered the house (which partly looked like my parents house oddly) to see what she was chewing on while her parents called the company to complain about this situation.

The toddler was by the air conditioner in the dining room, I discovered that she was chewing on a battery and I found several batteries in her mouth that I had to remove, but she still wanted to chew on the batteries so I told her no and she started crying.

She was too young to talk yet so I tried to comfort her while I called my mom to let her and the parents know what happened, and that they should probably take their daughter to the hospital to make sure that she did not swallow anything and to make sure that the batteries that she had chewed on did not cause any damage to her mouth et cetera.

But I woke up.

Dream 2

This dream involved me working at a fictional version of The BP Library that was Rooster Teeth-like, I remember hearing a sound that I assumed to be a UPS alarm or something coming from the printer room and / or the IT Department, and so I went to investigate.

Two male managers and / or directors and / or owners and / or whatever with light-color skin walked over to investigate as well, one of them left and the other started to print something, and the sound stopped so it was coming from that printer I assume.

I started talking with him about this and about what he was printing because I saw him scanning his hands with the printer, and he told me that he was making copies of his fingerprints so that he could print them on paper and put maybe pills (probably recreational drugs) on them to give to our coworkers later at a party; but I woke up.

Dream 3

I am not sure if this entire dream was a movie or if it became a movie after the Jesus part of the dream or if this is actually two separate dreams.

At some point in this dream or two dreams Jesus was leading a crowd of people / followers / whoever during the day, many were on horses et cetera but Jesus and some of the others were not, and I was among them I guess.

We entered a nice but ancient style tunnel that water would flow through sometimes so it was dangerous to linger in it, it was dry now but it was expected that we might not be able to cross it in time before the water comes rushing through, and so we hurried through the tunnel.

About halfway or more it seemed that we would not make it in time before the water comes, and so Jesus led us to a door on the left side of the tunnel that led to a room with stadium seating so that he could ask maybe an ancient Eastern European (this was my wild guess in the dream, and I had no idea) goddess (who was probably older than Jesus) if she would allow us to stay here briefly until the water passes.

The assumed goddess probably looked older and probably had light-color skin with maybe gray / white hair, and her proportions were probably wider and taller than a normal human so imagine a less exaggerated version of maybe a character like Yubaba:

There were people and / or entities in the stadium seating areas already, the entire room was dimly lit, and Jesus walked over to the assumed goddess who was standing on the sunken area behind maybe a desk or something; and he asked her to allow us brief safe passage / wait in her room until the water passes.

A man with Jesus’s group told Jesus to make sure that the goddess did not see his appearance or she might reject his plea if she did not think that he was a deity from her pantheon, oddly Jesus looked more like Santa Claus now after being told this, and Jesus with his new appearance walked into the crowd in the stadium seating to give a brief speech to win over the crowd while staying in the darkest areas to avoid the goddess from seeing his appearance.

Jesus won over the crowd with his speech, they cheered, and the goddess accepted his plea and we were allowed to wait here until the water passed.

We heard the water moving through the tunnel quickly and we were glad that we had stopped here instead of trying to continue, after the wait this is either part of this dream or a new dream, and if the dream was not already a movie then it was clearly a movie at this point.

It was time to leave, I knew this was a movie being filmed and that I was an extra in the movie basically, as I was walking to leave through the stadium seating area I saw Jean-Claude Van Damme playing a somewhat comedic character who seemed to be maybe a personal trainer wearing maybe a red headband and a sleeveless shirt.

I was just an extra with probably no dialogue, but to my surprise and confusion Jean-Claude Van Damme walked over to me and started talking to me and I had no lines so I had to just go along with it and try not to ruin the scene.

He possibly asked me about my workout routine at some point and I tried to stay in character with my response, we said goodbye and I left to the next area, and when I got to the next area I saw Jean-Claude Van Damme again still in character.

He approached me again and we started talking, and he said something simple that could also be considered deep / insightful depending on your interpretation but I can not remember what was said but it possibly involved him talking about trying to reach his goals through work / helping others while using minimal effort but I can not remember.

I remember being surprised by this because his character was comedic and fitness focused and what he said was simple, but possibly had deeper meaning; but I woke up as I thought about this.

The end,
