Dream 1

I forgot most of this dream so I only barely remember part of the end of it, it is possible that my former male classmate JC and maybe his fiancé were in the dream during one of the forgotten parts of the dream, and the end of the dream took place at The E House.

My mom, some of my mom’s side of the family, some unknown people, and I were at The E House during the day and things were normal at first.

Somehow the topic of race came up among some of the others and I remember going outside alone, and I walked into the laundry building which was slightly bigger because it now had an extra room connected to it.

Something had caught my attention that I can not remember, as I was distracted my mom walked into the laundry building, and I remember her asking me a question that was something like what am I or what do I consider myself to be.

I was a bit confused and annoyed by the question because I assumed that she was talking about race like the others and she knows how negatively I feel about race, I do not believe in or support or identify with race in any way and I am strongly against the idea or belief in race and it annoys and saddens me that most people seem to believe in and support race even though it does not really exist, and race does not physically exist in modern humans as far as I know scientifically and it is nothing but a false and failed and harmful social classification/division/et cetera system created by humans.

I reminded my mom that she already knows that I do not believe in or support race and neither does current science, and so I told her that I assume that she was asking me what social group(s) do I identify with.

I do not really identify with any social group(s), my family’s ancestors were from various social groups and cultures and most of their culture(s)/et cetera was destroyed/lost/not passed on/abandoned/and more so I never grew up with any connection with any particular culture(s) or social groups, but I did name some of the social groups that some of our ancestors probably identified with or were from.

I am not sure if the next part is another dream or not, but I will type it as another dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember is that this dream or this part of the dream was like being in a fictional version of the new History channel miniseries Roots, and it took place during the evening or night at a dock area with many slaves and/or former slaves with brown and black skin around the dock with a few armed guards with white skin patrolling the area as an obese upper class man with white skin was walking around like maybe he was picking out new slaves or something like that.

On the dock area closest to land was the character Kunta Kinte (played by the actor Malachi Kirby) from the new miniseries Roots among the crowd stalking the upper class man like the upper class man had done something terrible to him and his family (maybe he even had Kunta Kinte’s daughter killed or something like that, but I can not remember), and so it seemed that Kunta Kinte was going to kill him in revenge maybe.

The upper class man was very over-confident and relaxed and annoying like he was better than everyone and like he thought that the slaves and/or former slaves were not even human, and the guards were not even close to him so he was walking alone among the slaves and/or former slaves alone.

The slaves and/or former slaves outnumbered him and the guards easily, at some point the upper class man was close enough for Kunta Kinte to shoot him with a revolver that he had hidden on him, and the upper class man asked the crowd where was his daughter who had arrived here with him at the dock and someone replied that she had been arrested for killing a non-human animal that was probably out of season so it was not legal to hunt it at this time (I am not sure if this was true or if it was a lie to distract him while Kunta Kinte moves in for the kill).

The upper class man started ranting about how his daughter was probably arrested on the orders of the governor to get back at him, I guess him and the governor were enemies, and while he was ranting Kunta Kinte pulled out his revolver and hid it partly in a bag so that no one would see the revolver and to help reduce the sound when he shoots the upper class man.

Kunta Kinte held up his hidden revolver as the upper class man ranted loudly, and then Kunta Kinte shot him but the upper class man was so busy ranting loudly that you only partly heard the gunshot and it took him several seconds to react to getting shot.

Once he reacted to getting shot the guards, who were in the distance, started shooting the slaves and/or former slaves, and chaos broke out.

Some of the slaves and/or former slaves started fighting back, a few of them had guns, but many were running and screaming; but I woke up.

The end,

A Dream Inspired By The 10th Kingdom?

Last night I remembered part of a memory from many years ago when my former male classmate JC, my former male classmate DH, maybe a few others, and I tried to watch the entire miniseries called The 10th Kingdom in one sitting (over 6 hours) at The B Dorms at M College.

My former classmate JC had the miniseries on DVD, everyone went to sleep before the miniseries was finished except for maybe my former classmate JC and I, but it is possible that one or both of us did not finish watching it in one sitting either; but I can not remember.

Anyway, this memory caused me to barely remember part of what it possibly a dream that I had those many years ago after watching that miniseries, and so I assume that this memory is from maybe the year 2004 or 2005 but I could be wrong.

If this is a dream like I assume, then I remember the dream taking place during the day at a castle where The Evil Queen (Christine White) lived, and Virginia Lewis and maybe some other people were there (maybe Wendell White (Prince Wendell)); and The Evil Queen probably had her guards trying to kill Virginia and anyone with her.

So there was running, hiding, and fighting around the castle; and I remember maybe Wolf in what I assume was his transformed state (wolf form/werewolf form/whatever, if he could even transform at all) or a werewolf moving around the edge of a barn/basement-like ceiling in a room with maybe some hay on the ground.

Wolf or the werewolf was moving around partly on all fours pacing back and forth maybe, and during the dream I got to see different parts and floors of the nice castle; but that is all that I can remember of what I assume was a memory of a dream from many years ago.

A Forced (Mandatory) Boarding School In The City Of D?

I barely remember part of my last dream from last night which took place during the day in a slightly fictional version of the city of D, the school system started to change to longer school days, then more school days every year, and then they became boarding schools where the students lived; and then they became strict forced/mandatory boarding schools that seemed more like prison to me, and they even had armed and armored guards who wore body armor that looked a bit like Desert Ranger Combat Armor (but without the helmets probably) from the video game Fallout: New Vegas.

My memory of this dream is very flawed and incomplete so all that I can remember is being with a group of unknown people, somehow we got forced into the D High School, even though we were probably adults who finished high school years ago; and we probably tried to explain that this was a mistake but they would not listen, and they probably took us there by school bus under armed guard.

The D High School was under armed guard and it was more like a prison than a boarding school and I remember the other students being normal public school aged students (I can not remember if they were all high school students or not, maybe there were various school aged students there as well, but I am not sure) but the group that I was with were probably adults, and the school had very strict rules and routines that seemed more focused on controlling people than educating them and helping them to learn how to learn.

I think that a man in our group came up with an idea for us to escape the forced boarding school and he also wanted to free the other students and try to end this prison-like forced/mandatory boarding school system, he seemed to be the leader of the group, and so we followed his plan and several other students joined us.

I remember us sneaking to the parking lot but one or more school buses arrived with new students and they were under armed guard like we had been, we hid, but the leader changed the plan without warning; and the leader and some of the others probably attacked the guards taking their weapons and armor, and they took control of the school bus pretending to be guards. (I do not know what happened to the guards, I never saw them again, maybe they killed them and hide the bodies)

I assumed that we were going to load up as many students as we could and take them away so that they could be free but to my surprise/confusion the leader and some of the others took them to the school continuing to pretend to be guards, they probably took out all the real guards, and they slowly took control of the school; and they continued accepting new students pretending to be the people running the school and/or guarding the school.

This confused and surprised me and I did not agree with this, this was not part of the plan, I did not take part in this, and I assumed that maybe they were going to keep pretending while improving the school to be about education and learning et cetera instead of being more like a prison; but it seemed that they were following the same system as before to my surprise/shock/confusion.

I can not remember if I argued with them or not about this, probably not, I probably watched them from a distance while helping some of the other students escape; and I probably was trying to figure out what was going on before deciding what I should do, I assumed that either they were doing a good job acting so that people on the outside would not get suspicious or they tricked us or they became power/control-hungry/whatever, either way I was going to continue the original plan while keeping my distance until I could figure out who to trust and what to do but I woke up.

A Gang Of Living Toys And Other Beings?

Source: Wikipedia

I only remember part of a confusing and unclear dream from last night, I remember driving with my family to another city/state/wherever that was probably a fictional version of T, and we went to a hospital/apartment-like building maybe to see my grandfather or someone but I am not sure.

It was a multi-floor(ed) building with windowless hallways with dark carpet & walls & it was dimly lit, and we went to one of the rooms at some point which had carpet; but I can not remember this part of the dream, I just remember a jump in time in the dream and the room looked about the same but the floor was no longer carpet in the room, and I noticed this odd change & I mentioned it to my brother GC who was in the room but I do not remember his response.

The room had a computer and I was on it using the internet while talking with my brother GC, and at some point GC said that he was bored & he left; and then I left shortly after, but another jump in time happened again, and now I was outside of a cave-like place where I had gotten a job.

I entered the dimly lit cave-like place being led by one of the workers who was the man who walks through our neighborhood & sits on porches almost everyday, and he was the one who was going to show me my job.

It felt like we were underground in a hellish work environment with other poor people who hated their jobs & worked hard, I saw some people probably working in front of a hot furnace-like thing shoveling coal or something in it & they did not look happy & they were tired but working hard, and the worker brought me to a pan of blue liquid that reminded me of aftershave; and there was a cotton-like thing in the middle I think, and my job involved working with this liquid I think.

The worker showed me what to do, while doing this some people would come to get some of the blue liquid to put it on their cuts & stuff to help heal themselves it seemed, and Merlin from the BBC TV show Merlin was one of the workers who came to the blue liquid many times because he was very tired & had wounds; and there was another jump in time and Merlin came to get some more blue liquid but there was no more, and Merlin started to panic a bit in anger/pain/tiredness.

This work environment was like being in a working hell where you almost never see the boss who is like a devil-like character hiding in the background getting rich off of poor people working hard in terrible environments for little pay & no benefits & working long hours & with little to no breaks, and the entire environment of this place felt negative/tiring/hopeless/slave-like/et cetera.

I had no idea what the blue liquid was exactly but it seemed to be a healing solution that helped the workers keep working/survive and I had no idea where to get more, even though my job seemed to involve working with/dividing out/guarding the liquid, and so I had no idea how to help Merlin or replace the blue liquid; and so I tried to ask the worker who showed me what my job was, but there was another jump in time in the dream.

The dream gets real confusing & unclear at this point, but I think that a group of living toys & other non-Human beings came; and I remember talking with a female being and a male living toy, and I got along well with the female being & she seemed to bring positiveness to this terrible working environment.

I call some of the beings living toys because they looked like toys but they were alive, some were small but some were almost Human sized but most were smaller than Humans, and some of the beings probably were not living toys but random unknown beings like the female being probably.

I can not remember most of our conversations or what happened during this part of the dream, but I know that things were more positive when they arrived; but at some point a gang of living toys & other beings came to cause trouble.

I think that one of their leaders was an annoying living toy who was male with freckles with whitish colored skin with red colored hair who liked to trash talk, and they started attacking all of us; and a big fight broke out.

At some point I realized that this was a distraction, the gang of living toys & other beings had come to kidnap the living toys & other beings who had come before they arrived, the female being & the living toys who came with her used to be part of a larger group; but that group started to become negative once the annoying male living toy & some others took over the group, and so they left the group.

So the new leader or one of the leaders had come with his gang to kidnap them back but we did not know that until it was too late, and during the fight they kidnapped almost all the living toys & other beings who had been friendly to us; and the female being got kidnapped, which angered me, and I was going to go save her.

I think that one of male living toys with her had hidden during the fight, so he did not get kidnapped, and he showed me how to reach the hiding place of the gang of living toys & other beings; but he did not join me since he could not fight and Merlin was too tired & wounded from working to help either, and so I went alone.

In the wilderness there was another cave-like place where their gang was hiding underground, I entered the dark cave & walked through the dark cave until I reached a dark kitchen on the left, and the main entrance to the gang in front of me; and I hid in the kitchen behind the entrance to the kitchen when one of the living toys was patrolling on guard duty, and he came in the kitchen but did not see me standing behind the entrance in the dark.

A second living toy patrolled the kitchen and he almost saw me when he passed me, he stopped & said: “Huh, I thought I saw something, guess it was nothing.”  and he walked off; and I could hear one of the annoying leaders of the gang talking in the distance from the main area, and so I tried to figure out how to sneak past their gang and/or fight them.

There was too many of them to sneak past or fight, so the situation did not look good, but I was determined to save the female being & some of the living toys who had been kind to us; but as I was moving one of the other beings in the gang came to patrol the kitchen, and it was Freddy Krueger but he looked a bit tougher.

Somehow he saw me and we started to fight, and he was using his claw weapons; and I fought hand-to-hand & using things in the kitchen, and it was a good fight.

I got cut a few times and some other guards heard the noise and came to help him, I am not sure if I killed him or not, but I remember running to get past the security while they were distracted hoping to reach the female being & the living toys being held hostage; but I woke up.

The end,

A Familiar Dream Of A Meeting Of High Level People

Source: Wikimedia Commons

I was so busy with other stuff that I forgot about my dreams, fortunately I can barely remember some of them, and one of them was a repeat of a forgotten dream from the past probably.

Unfortunately almost all the details of both dreams are missing, which is a shame, because these two dreams were interesting & covered details of once forgotten dreams/memories from the past; but I will try hard to think deeply about these two deep/hard to remember dreams.

Dream 1

The first dream is buried pretty deep because it took place in a dream world that looked a bit like a deep dream world that I have dreamed about a few times, it is an actual dream world where the entire world is small enough to be known/seen, a deep world with lots of water; I use the word deep, because it feels like a deep place/memory/dream world.

This dream world has a few land areas, but you have to travel by boat a lot; and the water & the dream world has a grayish/blueish/slightly dark tone color, and the world feels contained like you can not get past the sky & like there is not much of a sky.

I do not know how the dream began or any of the important details, I just remember being on a boat with several people, and we reached land; and we went inside of a building.

The dream started to become familiar where I realized that I had been to this place before and that the same events from last time was happening again, and a meeting of high level people was going to begin.

Several of the high level people were dressed in older style clothes & they had guards with old style weapons like old rifles with bayonets, from a time period like before or during the American Revolutionary War or some time period like that, and one of the high level people was a probably a French nobleman and/or general with one of those long curly hair wigs & he was wearing fancy old style clothing from around that time period.

Slowly various high level people from the military, people from various groups (religious & non-religious)/families/et cetera, business people, intelligence agents, politicians, et cetera were slowly arriving by boat; and some of them probably had slaves and/or their own workers & guards, but I can not remember if they were all from the same time period or not.

I was not part of either group or part of the gathering as far as I can remember, I probably just happened to be waiting for a boat when the nobleman & his guards were waiting on the boat as well, and I probably happened to get off at the same stop as them.

I did get to see the inside of the building, which probably mostly only people who were to be part of the meeting got to see, because I remember the slaves/workers/most of the guards having to stay outside of the building; but somehow I got to go inside of the building several times.

The inside of the building was dimly lit & pretty dark, it was probably one floor, it probably had a large open area with various areas for various things like kitchen/dining room/meeting room/et cetera & there were some closed areas that I did not get to see, and I remember there being a ramp-like area near the entrance on the outside & inside & there were some sunken areas with steps needed to move to the next area.

I remember many of the guards were patrolling outside of the building keeping a watch on the slaves/workers/et cetera, and some of the guards were probably from various places in Europe like the guards of probably French nobleman; and some of them who spoke English might have been from The United States (USA) (if it even existed during this time period) & other non-European English-speaking countries.

I am not sure what the meeting was going to be about, it did not start during the dream, I remember that it was night-time before the dream ended.

Dream 2

The next dream took place on a boat but I am not sure if it was in the same dream world or not, my memory is too unclear, I just remember that someone was doing something for me; and it involved inviting various high level people on the boat to talk/raise money/or something like that.

I was not comfortable about that or with the high level people and I did not want to talk with them or be around them, but the person convinced me that it was necessary to help me with whatever that it was that I needed help with.

The boat had several areas connected to it, one was square-shaped & another was shaped like a circle & there might have been more areas, and that is where the various high level people were standing/talking/et cetera.

The high level people were mostly divided in groups as they talked such as: military, intelligence, business, politicians, et cetera; and they probably were from a modern time period, but I am not sure.

I remember staying mostly on the boat talking with the person who was trying to help me, who also kept encouraging me to talk with some of the high level people, since I was hiding on the boat mostly to avoid them; and at some point I walked out where I could be seen, and I prepared myself to greet some of the high level people but I woke up.

The end,
