Exploring Group Dynamics

Late last night (early morning) after watching television (Japanese anime) with my brother GC I was going to play a bit of Fallout 4 and then brush my teeth and go to bed, but I accidentally fell asleep on the couch for a few hours (1:something AM – 6:something AM) because I was more tired than expected so I did not get up to play some Fallout 4 like I had planned.

I woke up suddenly realizing what had happened and I remembered some dreams but they were fading fast as I rushed to turn everything off and get in bed, and so I did not take the time to try to remember them and voice record them before getting in bed because I was worried that I would not be able to go back to sleep or it would take me longer to go to sleep so I forgot those dreams and so I spent most of last night sleeping and snoring on the couch and I only got to sleep a few hours in my bed.

The dream or dreams that I had after finally getting in my bed instead of the couch all involved groups or group dynamics, and so the dream explored various situations involving groups of people.

The Walking Dead television franchise and The Walking Dead Telltale Games were featured heavily in the dream or dreams at first, the dream or dreams followed group dynamics among groups of people inspired by The Walking Dead, and so some parts of the dream or dreams took place inside television series and some took place inside video games and some took place in the normal dream or dreams itself/themselves.

After exploring group dynamics between people in survival situations like on The Walking Dead, the dream jumped around exploring group dynamics among other groups of people, and I was probably in some parts of the dream or dream but there were some parts of the dream or dreams where I possibly was not there.

Some of the group dynamics that were explored involved sports teams and sports fans with more of a focus on American Football (this was not the only sport explored), and so I saw various situations between teammates and sports fans.

Other group dynamics explored were between a military-like group, I remember that there was a woman with whitish-colored skin wearing a uniform for the military-like group, and she was waiting to be accepted into the military-like group so that she could start her training.

We were at an indoor/outdoor building where some members of the military-like group were training and I got to see some of the interactions between the people and the drill instructor, the woman was sure that she would be accepted so that is why she was already wearing the uniform, and I remember us standing and talking as she waited to find out if she was accepted or not but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

Some group dynamics between family members were explored, and so there were various situations that I got to see between families interacting with each other.

One group dynamic that I got to see was between one or more groups of people who spoke the same language but who were learning another language, but a woman in one of these groups wanted to learn French instead of the language that the rest of her group was learning.

This caused conflict with the rest of her group who were wondering why she wanted to learn French, and they argued with her and they tried to get her to stop learning French and to learn the language that they were learning.

The woman resisted and she said that she wanted to learn French, and so she kept learning French and her group probably banished her or shunned her and spoke badly of her but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

This dream or dreams explored positive, negative, and neutral group dynamics between these various groups of people and various situations that they were in.

I also saw group dynamics between friends, classmates, coworkers, neighbors, citizens of the same country, members of the same ethnic group, probably member of the same religion, and more.

This dream or dreams jumped between these various group dynamics from various angles and locations et cetera (real life, video games, television series, films, et cetera), but that is all that I can remember of this dream or dreams.

The end,
