The Science Of Sleep Guru Dream Scene | The Vanishing And Instinct Blues

Source: YouTube

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that it involved what some people call the guru dream scene from the film The Science Of Sleep and the music in that scene (Instinct Blues by The White Stripes), I watched this scene on YouTube before going to sleep, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

This was an interesting short dream but my memory of it is messed up so a few important parts of the dream are missing leaving me confused about parts of the dream and the order of certain events in the dream and I have a memory of a strange thunderstorm-like storm that happened, but I can not remember if this happened in another dream or if this happened in this dream; and I can not remember when this strange thunderstorm-like storm happened, and so I will have to make a wild guess about this part.

All that I can remember is the dream starting during the day in a fictional dream world/planet/time period or a fictional version of our world/planet in maybe a near future time period in a mostly fictional area that looked like my parent’s house and yard in some parts and/or during certain parts of the dream, and in this world/on this planet there had been an event that happened in the past called The Vanishing where for unknown reasons some people’s body parts slowly started to fade away until one day the person eventually fades away completely (the fading process varied for each person, but eventually they all fade away completely whether it takes days or weeks or months or years to happen).

The Vanishing was continuing to happen/possibly spread around this world/planet with no one knowing the cause, those effected/affected/infected by The Vanishing were called The Vanished but I can not remember what those not effected/affected/infected were called, and both groups chose a person to represent them/whatever; and the person representing The Vanished was a man with whitish colored skin with dark-colored hair maybe wearing a dark-colored suit and parts of his head and body had faded away already who had a less outgoing and more serious personality, and the person representing everyone else was a woman with whitish colored skin with maybe reddish/orangish-brownish colored hair who had an outgoing and relaxed and independent personality.

I think that I met both leaders/representatives/whatever as I was entering the yard where my family lived (a mostly fictional version of my parent’s house I guess) and they probably were explaining things to me, the man representing The Vanished had different beliefs/opinions/et cetera than the woman representing everyone else and he seemed to not like her at all, and he became angry and they had an argument/debate about how to handle The Vanishing and about the things that he did not like about the woman; and the man left in anger, and I continued walking and talking with the woman inside my parent’s house/building.

Some of my family was inside the one-story house/building and at some point I think that we walked through a room that had a walk-through bathroom before you got to the bedroom, we talked in both of these areas, and while talking I think that my family had a strange fictional female emu-like animal that possibly was a purplish color and was in the yard; and I think that they/someone told her to start trying to knock down part of the wall of the bedroom where the woman and I were talking for some reason (maybe to remodel it or something, and I guess the emu-like animal could understand some basic commands because they probably trained it), and so we heard the female emu-like animal running and hitting the top of the wall slowly making a large rectangle shape at the top of the wall that would eventually burst open into the room.

We continued talking and I remember asking the woman questions about The Vanishing, The Vanished, et cetera trying to learn more and something happened that I can not remember; but my wild guesses are that suddenly a strange thunderstorm-like storm started and I got struck by lightning/whatever (this was a very strange storm that looked like nothing that I have ever seen before, it did not even look like a real storm, but I can not remember the details) and then I became one of The Vanished where part of my body started the slow fading process or I became one of The Vanished after the emu-like animal knocked the wall in and I had to stop her when she would not stop running around the house or I became one of The Vanished after both of these things happened during a strange event but I can not remember.

I just know that someone changed their minds about having part of the wall knocked down and they commanded the emu-like creäture to stop but she would not stop (she had a name but I can not remember it), and so she eventually knocked a large part of the wall down forcing the woman and I to dodge it and the female emu-like animal ran around the house crazily not following commands as the song Instinct Blues by The White Stripes played out-loud as I chased her around the house trying to stop her from destroying it because she was still in destruction mode; and so eventually I had to tackle her to stop her and I had to put her in a rear naked choke using my legs to try to stop her from kicking and getting up, she was very strong, and my dad probably helped me take her back outside and she finally calmed down again.

I remember talking to the woman about my situation now that I was one of The Vanished and asking her questions but there was nothing that she knew that could help me except that they were trying to experiment with using the power of the mind to stop The Vanishing (the leader/representative of The Vanished thought that this would not work, but she had hope that it would work), where each of The Vanished would have to try to see if they can use their minds to stop the fading process for themselves, and I remember her telling me that she was sorry about me being one of The Vanished now and she wished me well before leaving; and I did not know how long I had until I faded away completely because it was different for each person, and so I decided to try to use my mind to stop it and maybe this worked but I can not remember.

I know that I told my family about my situation and about my experiment but I just can not remember the results, I remember going outside near my parent’s storage buildings and this part of the yard looked normal except that there were some metal shelves in the yard with tools/equipment, and my uncle CE was at E Manor and he saw me and he walked over to talk to me.

I wanted to see if he wanted something on the shelf and I would ask my parent’s if he could have it, we talked while he looked at the items on the shelf, and then I heard my uncle CE say: “She is signaling for me to leave.” and then he walked back to E Manor angrily; and I looked up to see my mom and then maybe my dad, and I talked with them asking them if my uncle CE could have something on the shelf and I asked why my mom signaled for him to leave; but I woke up.

FS And Fake John McCain And Action Charlotte Gainsbourg

Source: Wikimedia Commons


The first dream I remember from last night was about a woman who I went to high school with named FS.

I can not remember much of it, but I do remember being somewhere that was similar to the high school building near the spot where FS had given me a letter telling me that she liked me.

In this dream we met near this same spot by accident, just like in one of my last dreams were CW and I met by accident.

Anyway, in this dream FS and I happened to see each other, and we stopped to talk.

Similar to the CW dream, we talked about the past, but in this dream we really considered getting to know each other better this time, since we both were still single.

I remember the two of us preparing to go on a date, and that is about all that I remember.

Fake John McCain

(This was only a dream, I do not really want to murder any of these people, I do not even daydream about things like this, and I have no idea why I had a dream like this; and so I find this disturbing just like anyone reading it.)

I know this was not really my second dream, I had others, but I can not remember them at all.

In this dream I remember following a man into a grocery store, he appeared to maybe be a fake version of John McCain, but I am not sure.

He went to a door that led to some stairs and/or an elevator, and so I followed him.

I went to the second floor and the place looked like the old B dorms almost with brown carpets, small hallways, no windows, and a few areas were like my grandfather’s house.

I went to a room that had another room in it that was almost like a bathroom, there were a few people standing outside the room and the fake McCain or whoever he was, went inside the second room.

This dream was almost like a video game/movie, and it seemed like I was going to kill Mr. McCain (or who ever he was).

I walked into the room with a few bottlecap mines from the Fallout 3 video games, and I saw Mr. McCain, my friend SS, his brother MS, and a few other people; and then they looked surprised and scared.

I told them not to move or the mines would explode and that the mines were motion sensitive, and if you get to close to them, that they would explode in 3 seconds.

I put a few mines in front of the door, blocking their escape from the room, and I left to close the door; but first I decided to throw a frag grenade into the room.

I wanted to use a nuka grenade which is the strongest grenade in Fallout 3, but I only had a frag grenade, and so I threw that in there as I closed the door.

I heard an explosion and the people outside of the door ran screaming, but to my surprise the people in the second room ran out; and somehow none of them were killed, not even Mr. McCain.

Mr. McCain, ran as well, probably to get some security guards and some more help; and so I ran into a room that was located in the middle of the building.

It was like a room at my grandfather’s house, and next to it was a door to the outside.

I stood there hiding and wondering if I should still try to kill Mr. McCain or if I should run.

I decided to run out of the door, and I do not think anyone knew where I was; but I woke up.

Action Charlotte Gainsbourg

This was another interesting dream, that was possibly connected to the second dream or at least similar.

It was more like a movie that I was just watching or something, and Charlotte Gainsbourg was the main character.

I can not remember the beginning, but I think a man had killed and/or stole something from someone who Ms. Gainsbourg knew personally or someone hired her to get the package back and kill the man who stole it.

I just remember a man with some unknown package that he had stolen, and he appeared to probably work for a drug cartel or something.

He seemed to be trying to get the package to someone, to make a trade or deal, and he took the package to a dock that was well guarded.

There were men around with guns patrolling the area, but he still seemed very afraid.

There was a boat waiting to take him somewhere to meet with someone or a group of people, so that they could make the trade or deal.

But he was afraid of Ms. Gainsbourg, and he wanted to be sure that it was safe to get on the boat; and so he hid in a barely guarded area where she would probably not see him.

He wondered why she had not come to kill him yet, and he was afraid that she was waiting to shoot him with a sniper rifle when he started to walk to the boat.

He kept looking around for her and he kept thinking about what to do, and finally he got on the boat and they left after waiting for a while.

I remember one of his guards staying behind to protect the docks, along with two other men who were not guards, they but were probably accountants/businessmen or something.

They were standing on a tall metal thing that was over the docks, and suddenly they saw Ms. Gainsbourg walking across the docks wearing her outfit from The Science Of Sleep which was/were blue jeans and a wool-like sweater.

She looked very serious and deadly, like a female terminator or something.

I am not sure if she somehow killed all the security guards or not, but I do know that there was no one else left guarding the area after she finished with them, except that one guard that stayed behind.

That last guard had something that she needed, I guess it would allow her to find the man she was after or something, and so she was trying to get to the last guard to get it; and it was a small device he was carrying.

The guard and the two businessmen were standing on this tall metal thing, and they could only be reached by a helicopter or someone would have to climb to a fan across from the metal thing that the men were standing on and they would have to jump across toward the metal thing; which was very dangerous and risky.

She decided to climb and she moved like a gymnast almost, and she reached the fan but the fan was moving; which made it even more dangerous.

The guard did not seem worried at all and he was smiling, as Ms. Gainsbourg reached the fan and she hung on to the fan, as it spinned over and over again.

At this point she started to have a hard time, trying to hold on to the fan while trying to find a way to stand up & jump toward the metal thing, and as she was struggling the guard jumped to the fan area.

He started laughing, taunting her, touching on her, and trying to kiss her; to distract and annoy her, as she tried to hold on to the fan.

She could not fight back and hold on to the fan at the same time, so she was very vulnerable at this point, but then somehow I was in the dream at this point, standing next to the two businessmen.

I felt that she would try to jump soon, and so I was going to help catch her so that she would not fall.

I was correct and she found an opening to jump, after she elbowed the guard in the face.

She jumped toward me, and for the first time you could really see fear and weakness in her face.

Before she seemed perfectly confident and strong, but now she seemed like a regular person again.

I caught her and I told her that we would not stop her from completing her mission, and the guard was going to jump back to the metal thing to face us; but first he threw the small device, that Ms. Gainsbourg needed to find the man who she was after, to one of the two businessmen.

I guess the guard wanted him to hold it if he did not make the jump, but instead of holding it for him, the businessman gave it to Ms. Gainsbourg to our surprise.

The guard jumped in anger toward us but he fell toward the dock & water, and Ms. Gainsbourg started to leave to continue her mission; but then I woke up.

The end,
