All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day, I remember being on the upper floor of a multi-story building that was probably a college dorm, and I was there with other people like my former male classmates JS and JC.
We seemed to be in dorm suites or shared rooms with many people, there were windows with no curtains that gave us a good view outside to the parking lot, and I assume that we were all college students and living in this dorm.
I remember my former classmate JC telling us some obvious lies about maybe him and/or his dad and/or his grandfather flying various aircraft around the world or something like that, but we knew that he was probably just lying to impress us but we did not say this to him.
At some point my former classmate JC left somewhere, I remember watching maybe a video about how some scientists meet once a year for a strange special event or ritual in what seemed to be maybe Antarctica, where they walk around in circles on a frozen body of water that could break.
Somehow I ended up being there during the current annual event or ritual, it was cold and the scientist had winter gear on, and they walked around in circles on a frozen body of water almost like a parade or nature ritual.
I can not remember what this was all about but it was somewhat explained, there were some wild animals around the area, and there was even one whitish colored furred animal that they had trained who was also taking part in this event or ritual doing tricks.
There was more to this event or ritual that I can not remember, things to do with some of the people there and what was going on, and I remember snow and ice and maybe some icebergs and water nearby.
I think that this was done partly as a tradition and as a reminder about something to do with the environment but I can not remember, it was dangerous and the cold alone could kill you, and some of the wild animals so they probably had some security there.
I forgot most of the details of this part of the dream so I can not give a good description of it now unfortunately, and at some point I was somehow back at the parking lot of the college dorm like I had driven back there in my automobile after being flown back from Antarctica or however I got there earlier.
I returned to one of the upper floors from earlier in the college dorm, there were partial walls in this shared room with small half-open bedrooms for each person, and I saw that my former classmate JS had just returned from having surgery.
Earlier in the dream during a forgotten part of the dream he told me that he was having problems with one or more of his legs, while I was gone to Antarctica I guess he went to have it or them checked by a doctor, and so I guess he also had surgery done while I was gone.
He was wearing a hospital gown and he was laying on a bed with medical equipment connected to one of his legs and maybe to one of his arms, I asked him what happened, and to my surprise he said that he had to have one of his legs amputated.
He lifted his bed sheets to show me his disconnected leg which was connected to a machine to keep blood flowing through it or something like that, and he said that the doctors hoped to reconnect it soon and they hoped that eventually he would be able to use it again.
I was shocked and it was a bit hard to look at, I felt bad for him but he was positive and felt that he would be able to use it again eventually, but that it would probably take years of physical therapy.
This made me feel a bit better, our former classmate JC returned to apologize for lying to us earlier, and he admitted that he had tried to impress us with his lies for some reason even unknown to him.
We accepted his apologize and we let him know that we had known that he was lying, and that he did not need to lie to us to try to impress us.
This made him feel better and I woke up from the dream on a positive note.
I remember waking up with the song Black Skinhead by Kanye West playing in my mind, I am not sure if this was playing at some point in the dream or not, but it makes no sense to me because I listened to the Inception soundtrack on YouTube last night before going to sleep so I have no idea why the song Black Skinhead would be on my mind.
