    I'll start with my most memorable dream. First a little background. This was around middle school or high school and I was attending a summer prep program. Everyday I sat next to this girl with beautiful bronze legs. We chatted a couple times but I was ultimately too shy and summer passed. Anyway, I was wild over this girl, she invaded my thoughts. I had this dream during that summer.

    I'm in a small room with a low ceiling huddled around a candle with my girlfriend and another couple. The room is dark, the house is wood. The boyfriend proposes we go out for a walk. I stay behind but say I'll catch up for whatever reason.

    When I go outside I see a meandering corridor of old houses lining a cobblestone path. I start searching for them and I notice the night sky. If you've ever been on a mountain top without a city for miles, that's what it looked like. The sky was just saturated with stars. I continue searching for them and cut through a courtyard when an imposing woman appears and begins chasing me. She was tall, dark, almost like a statue. I begin running from her, down the cobblestone path when I see my girlfriend up ahead. It looked like she was bathing in the moonlight. I ran towards her and as I got near she said she had been looking for me. I held her, she rested her head on my chest and said - "I can feel your heartbeat." I tried to feel hers through my chest but felt nothing, and said "I can feel yours too."

    The feelings in the dream were vivid. In the house I felt gladness for the love I had, in the streets I felt beauty, in the courtyard I was terrified, which drove me toward the affection I experienced when I saw the girl in the light. In our embrace I felt empty.

    My interpretation of that dream has always been that I would never be able to find a true equal, I invite other thoughts. I've also never given much thought to what the statue woman was meant to signify, if anything. Lastly, this dream was from a long time ago and I've revisited it many times, so I'm sure my memory of it has altered somewhat.

    Was your girlfriend in the dream the same girl from the prep course? You said you chatted a couple of times; did you know her well enough to like for much more than her 'shell'?

    No, it was a different girl. The girl in the dream was also white, the girl at the prep school was cantonese - I don't think that has any real significance. I was never able to get past her shell, but she seems shy in retrospect. That probably fueled my interest in her.

    From my dream journal, sometime in February 2006:

    I am on a train with my family and a bunch of other people. It starts going really fast and outside the window things are streaking by so fast you can't see them. The train stops and we all get out. The conductor says to two other guys who were 'driving' the train that "I told you guys not to go past (such-and-such place). Now we're 280 million light years in the future!" We go to see what kind of world it is now, and if it is safe. Then we are in a mall waiting to get on the escalator. I am terrified and feel like you do when you're kind of dreaming and then realize that nothing you were thinking was real. But I don't quite reach that. I keep saying to my parents that "I want to be reading the book; I don't want to be in it!" Then we are on the escalator and my dad turns into Bob Saget. I think nothing of it. Then I see the walls pull apart like two sliding glass doors, but they are metal. I see some green aliens and the walls go back together. No one else noticed. I am scared because the aliens are simulating this familiar environment for us, but we are really on their spaceship.

    I swear that I had never seen the matrix before a couple of weeks ago. I've never tried to analyze it or anything. It's just kind of interesting to me I guess.

    I don't know. Maybe because I saw something no one else did. I saw one more layer of reality. It scared me though.

    I had a strange dream about the pledge of allegiance, a dance called the chainsaw, monkeys, stampedes, fake psychics, africa and, Usher

    So in my dream we were riding the train out to O'hare and we at one point were heading right for another train and their was no where for either of the trains to go so "Oh shit" but then all of a sudden the train is on one rail going past the other train and I'm holding my breath.

    The next moment were in the airport out side a bathroom and by a starbucks well anyways their's this creepy dude hanging around claiming to be a psychic so he comes up to me and says my brothers name and some business scheme that my brother had a year ago and I refuse to believe him and tell him that he was just a really good guesser and give him a dollar.

    Flash forward to africa their are crowds on two sides of a path way and usher comes down saying we're going to say the pledge of allegiance a new way. So he tells all the black people to raise their hands me not hearing the black people part raise my hand then realize no other white person has their hand raised I quickly lower my hand. then we start doing this dance called the chainsaw where you act like your starting a chainsaw then twist your hands around like an out of control chainsaw. In the back ground their are two monkeys in a gazebo watching us

    time goes on then their is a boar a pig and a monkey and they're all chasing eachother around in a circle. Next a creature that is the cross between a boar and a horse joins in then it stops being a circle and more of a straight line chase and more and more animals join until finally you see a two tabby kittens one purple one pink they hug each other and spin around real fast and they are a beautiful lavendar colored horse. Then right as the dream is ending you the the horse and I want to say a dragon (like from mulan) and they spin around again and are two beatles and one of the beatles glues on a red fake jewel to the other to dress the other one up.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I had a dream the other night that was kinda freaky.

    In my dream, I was having these dreams quite often, pretty much every night. In these dreams-within-my-dream, I was set within a maze or trap of some sort, and I had to find my way out, which always involved killing the people in my way. Kinda like a FPS, actually. Anyway, suddenly the cops were all after me (in my awake part of my dream) and somewhere along the way it turned out that they were after me for mass murder - apparently what I'd thought were dreams were actually me going around killing people. The cops caught up to me but said they wouldn't punish me because I was being brainwashed by some other guy (didn't know him). I was completely shocked and horrified that I'd killed real people. And then I woke up.

    It was interesting because I'm pretty sure that I've never dreamed about dreaming before.
