Had a ridiculously awesome time travel dream last night; it was the general theme of my dream. I didn't even need a time machine either, just thought about the time I wanted to travel to, and I was there. All of this took place in my house, and I went back to 1989. Everything in my house went back to the way it was then, except there were some things that vaguely resembled what it currently looks like in terms of furniture arrangement and lights. But the technology was different... no LCD TV sets... had the old CRT TV set in the family room, as well as the computers were set back to the bad old days of DOS... although the actual monitor looked 90s vintage. But the TV programming was clearly 80s. I saw a child in my dream that was me at 3 years old, and I interacted with her (puts a new definition to talking to yourself). Also heard the fire department's siren go out. I think this dream represents a couple things: pivotal year of my life, self-reflection, romanticizing the past, figuring out which decade/time frame represents me best, yearning to escape reality, and the fact that I relate to the pop culture of that time frame puts a great deal of stress on me today when pop culture is much different, and that my subconscious is bringing this to my attention... that perhaps I am struggling to find my identity in the current world because I feel a strong connection to music from the past which has colored my schema of the world, and the music of today doesn't match the way I view the world, the sounds don't sound like me, pretty much.
Also had a secondary dream about going to a dining hall that had risers that had these trays of bagels, and I had picked up one, despite the fact that I was going to make sure I wasn't going to overindulge in the bagels... and I had wanted to get an egg bagel, but when I would get to the tray, the egg bagels would disappear, and nothing but egg residue would be left over. However, I still had a cinnamon raisin bagel coated with poppy seeds that I ate. I had wanted to avoid eating the poppy seed coated bagels because I didn't want to get accused of having consumed opiates. But I ate the poppy seed coated bagel anyway. Apparently bagels mean that a key element of your life is missing; and eggs have to do with coming out of your shell, being comfortable with who you are, feeling vulnerable, fertility, birth, and creative potential. Again... relates to the time travel concept, where I am searching to become comfortable with my own identity, especially when I feel that I don't fit in with the world, and yearn to be in some other time frame where I would feel more accepted.
Sounds like a type 4 style dream if you ask me, LOL.
