Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb

This dream from last night was inspired by the film Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb, a film that I only saw part of years ago back in college during a history class taught by Dr. G, but last night I watched the entire film for the first time before going to bed.

This dream got interrupted possibly several times by me waking up and going back to sleep, and the dream took place in a dimly lit building that felt like it was underground and it seemed apartment-like even though it was probably a bunker-like war room where various high-level people were gathering because something had happened or was happening.

For some unknown reason I was there, most or all communications seemed to be cut off because of whatever was going on or we could not get the communications to those who needed it because they had their communications off as part of some kind of emergency protocol or something, and so basically this dream was following parts of the Dr. Strangelove film.

There was a lot of tension and complicated bureaucratic protocols (manuals, codes, briefing, et cetera) that had to be followed which was a bit boring and ridiculous, and there was a small buffet with a woman behind the buffet bar serving the food so I stood in line to get some food.

There was a man who was probably from Japan (Japanese) standing in the line as well, and I remember listening and watching the long boring complicated series of protocols being followed as I waited in line for some food.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

A Dream Within A Dream + A Lucid Dream + A False Awakening Dream = ?

Last night was interesting, I had several longer dreams but I forgot some of them and I forgot most of the details of the dreams that I do remember after something interesting happened that I will explain later, and for the rest of the night I kept having very short dreams and waking up and going back to sleep without voice recording my dreams so I forgot most of the short dreams and most of the details of the dreams that I do remember.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place at The B Parish Library where I work as a shelver, and I was there working and I had a fictional female coworker with white skin who was working with me.

Each day my fictional female coworker would request and/or hold items for herself and/or some of her family while checking in items, and some of her family would arrive at the end of her work day to pick up the items and/or she would check out the items herself.

One day there was one or more items that I wanted to check out at the library so I did, but shortly after this I found out that was one or more of the items that I checked out were items that my female coworker and her family wanted to check out.

I did not know this before I checked out the items, and so I was going to check with my female coworker to see if she wanted me to bring the items back for her and/or her family could check them out instead but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

During a part of this dream that I can not remember I remember someone saying that they or someone else was/were maybe a prince or princess, this person possibly said this like they were trying to inspire themselves and remind themselves of who they were and of their potential, but I can not remember who said this or who they were referring to.

All that I can remember is that I was inside a slightly fictional version of my parent’s house during maybe the night or evening, and I remember sitting in the living room talking to my mom.

I still had a job but I started thinking about trying to return to college again, and the next thing that I remember is my mom and I driving to another city during the day to check out a college that I was thinking about signing up for.

For some unknown reason I was dressed as or partly dressed as Captain America without the mask or shield, I had a modern mostly blue with maybe white stars version of his shirt that fit nicely and made me look muscular and it looked like normal clothing instead of a costume, and my mom and I arrived at the college and we started walking around it.

There were college students there because it seemed that the new semester had started several days ago, and there seemed to be some other people there to sign-up for classes before the sign-up period ends.

I remember getting looks from some of the students and other people, I remember one woman with white skin with long brown hair looking at me  as she sat down like maybe she was interested in me, and so the Captain America shirt or outfit was drawing some positive attention to me.

As my mom and I walked and talked along a sidewalk I noticed a narrow vertical concrete tunnel above us with a ladder inside it, I asked my mom where this ladder went to, and she told me that it would take you to an upper area in front of the area where you sign-up for classes at the college.

I looked up to partly see an upper walkway that led to the office that she was talking about, and I saw some people walking up there including an out-of-shape man with light skin with black hair.

I was going to climb up the ladder but then I decided to walk the long way instead after we look around more first, and at some point I remember going to a small windowless classroom on an upper floor where a class was taking place.

Among the students I saw my former male classmate DH sitting in the front middle of the classroom, and my former male classmate BH sitting at the back middle of the classroom so I sat maybe in the middle of their row.

I am not sure if I had sign-up for college yet or not, either way I stayed until the class was over, and I talked with my former classmates and maybe a few other people before leaving to find my mom.

I found my mom but then I realized that it was not a good idea to sign-up for classes at this college now because it was in another city and my current job is in a different city, classes had already started days ago, I had no idea what I wanted to major in, it would be expensive to do this now, and there were some other reasons.

I was not sure if I had signed up yet or not so I needed to know if I needed to cancel my classes before it was too late, but then I realized that something was strange about this and that it did not make any sense for me to even consider going back to college under these circumstances.

I then realized that this was a dream, and then I woke up after the dream went lucid or so I thought.

I was back in my parent’s house, my parent’s were on the floor outside of the bathroom and my mom was possibly cutting my dad’s toe nails and/or giving him a massage and/or something like that, and I noticed that my mom had put some stuff on my bed like she had cleaned part of the house.

Among the things on my bed was a bag of unshelled roasted peanuts so I opened the bag to start cracking the shells and eating the peanuts, and then I started telling my parent’s about my dream as I shelled and ate peanuts.

I remember smiling and laughing as I told my dream, I am not sure if I found this out during the dream or not, but then I woke up again.

So that was also a dream so basically had had a dream within a dream that went lucid, and then I woke up back in the first dream which was now a false awakening dream; and then I woke up in the real world.

So what happened was that at the beginning of the dream when I was in the living room talking with my mom, I went to sleep in the first dream without realizing it, then I had a dream within the first dream, then I realized that the second dream was a dream so the dream was now lucid but I woke up back in the first dream thinking that it was the real world but it was still a dream which made it a false awakening dream, and so when I woke up in the real world this crazy series of events led to me forgetting most of my other dreams and some of the interesting details of the dreams that I did remember.

Dream 3

This dream and the dreams after it were very short dream that I kept having after waking up and going back to sleep each time without voice recording these dreams, and so unfortunately I can not remember most of them now but I do know that some of them were connected with each other and my previous dreams.

All that I can remember of this short dream is that I was inside maybe a house, I saw a vertical tunnel with a ladder like in the second dream but this time it went underground instead of up, and so I went down this narrow concrete tunnel with a ladder.

It led underground to either a dark room or a room with dark walls that were either black or dark gray or dark blue, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 4

All that I can remember of this dream is walking into a nicely lit carpeted room with windows that gave it nice natural lighting, it was a large mostly empty room with light-colored carpet, and sitting on the floor was a male teacher who was possibly also a coach who had white skin with somewhat orange/red hair and facial hair (maybe a goatee) wearing glasses and he was sitting next to a thin teenage girl with white skin with long yellow hair who was possibly his daughter.

The man was teaching her something, and I greeted them and the man asked me what *a word that I can not remember* (it was possibly a drug name or chemical name) was.

I replied that it was a type of drug/medicine I think (maybe an allergy or sinus medicine), but he said that was wrong and then he said that it was something to do with maybe making sure to drink enough water and stay hydrated.

I did not agree with this and maybe I said so but I am not sure, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 5

I had more dreams but this is the only other short dream that I can barely remember part of now, it was possibly connected with dream 3, but I am not sure.

All that I can remember is that I was leaving a secret underground area to the outside, and outside it was day and I possibly was standing next to a pyramid or building that was a secret facility or base that belonged to The United States Of America.

There was an enemy of The United States who was being allowed access outside of this facility so that both of them could work together to fight a threat that was a threat to both of them, and the enemy who was temporarily working with The United States had a strange large futuristic maybe somewhat insect-like metal robot outside of the pyramid or building and it brought out a large shield and pulled itself up behind the shield and it brought out a large gun like an anti-aircraft weapon.

It seemed that an attack was about to happen on this area so The United States and this enemy were temporarily working together to defend against this attack, and I heard a male voice (I visualized an old military general with white skin with white hair) of someone with The United States communicating over a communication device with its temporary ally.

Then I heard and saw a fighter aircraft that belonged to The United States fly quickly over us, and it shot another aircraft in the sky and it blew up so the attack was starting it seemed.

So I assumed that this was the new enemy that The United States and its temporary ally were about to defend against, I did not get a good look at the aircraft that got shot, but it almost seemed like a futuristic possibly alien aircraft that had been hovering quietly while cloaked before it got shot and exploded.

I had no idea what was going on or where was I, but it seemed that a battle was near or starting but I woke up.

Sneaking Into A Facility

This dream from last night was possibly partly inspired by the Japanese anime (animated) film Gall Force 3: Stardust War, which I watched last night, and all that I can remember of this dream is that a group of people and I were sneaking into a futuristic facility that belonged to a group who were the antagonists of this dream it seemed and various things in the dream were somewhat futuristic.

I can not remember what this group did to us and to the people we knew and others, but I assume that this group was doing bad things and unethical secret experiments at their facility (maybe they even kidnapped some people, but I am not sure).

For whatever reason(s) we snuck/sneaked into their facility, we had some communication devices that were probably in-ear earpieces that we used to communicate with a woman who was helping us, and she was letting us know about the situation outside and the situation in areas that we could not see.

We successfully sneaked into the mostly clean white somewhat futuristic facility without being noticed by the guards patrolling the outside and inside, I remember us being in a room about to sneak into a hallway, but then the woman communicating with us through our earpieces told us that the guards somehow knew that we had sneaked past their defenses so they were locking down the building.

The lockdown was meant to trap us inside as the guards try to find us, they did not know where we were yet, and so we ran into a hallway trying to avoid getting trapped but the areas that we were going to run through got blocked off by heavy walls/doors that lowered from the ceiling.

All of the escape routes were now blocked off, but then a woman (possibly a different woman) who worked at this facility who either knew someone in our group and/or who do not agree with what this group was doing and/or who was possibly a double agent from our group or who was possibly going to become a double agent for our group communicated with us through our earpieces telling us about a secret passage that led to a secret underground facility (base) where she worked and where she was at now all alone.

She communicated with us leading us to the secret passage and we went down the secret passage before the guards reached the area where we had been earlier, and we reached the secret underground facility where the woman was while the guards were still above-ground trying to figure out where we were and why they could not find us after locking down the building.

The woman who helped us had white skin with maybe long yellow hair and she wore a futuristic maybe white and gray uniform, and she was in an area with an underground hangar with a futuristic aircraft in it that looked somewhat like the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird except it was capable of transporting groups of people and cargo.

The woman was behind some glass in an upper area over-looking this hangar, and there were other areas behind her that probably led to secret research labs and other areas.

We talked with the woman who seemed somewhat worried and sad, she probably explained why she was helping us and she shared some information and she told us about some other things, and her plan was to hide us on the aircraft and fly away pretending to be on a normal mission hoping that the guards would not suspect that she helped us escape.

If they figured out how we escaped she would lie and say that we must have sneaked on the aircraft without her knowing, and she would lie about why she had left in the aircraft (she already had some lies ready that would make sense).

We asked her to leave with us, she wanted to, but she felt that staying would allow her to better help stop the bad things going on there and stop the group who she was working for by working with us as a double agent and passing on classified information and/or materials that would help stop them permanently once the public and authorities learn the truth of what goes on there.

She knew that being a double agent was dangerous and would possibly get her killed, tortured, imprisoned, fired, et cetera but she was willing to take the risk because she felt that it was the right thing to do even though she knew that we could not protect her there.

We thanked her and wished her well, the guards were possibly getting closer to figuring out that something was wrong and that we were no longer above-ground, and so she hid us on the aircraft and she prepared to contact her people to let them know that she was about to leave in the aircraft on a routine mission or something.

I remember the hangar and part of the runway opening to the outside so that she could take off in the aircraft, but I woke up as the aircraft started to move and take off.
