serial/episode dreams

 

this is the third serial/episode dream of the writers unillustrious life

 

the first episode of this serial dream (a one-scene dream) was the day before this one

 

in the one-scene dream, i was standing and looking down at a rectangular see-though malleable plastic container that had a removable top to it

 

the contents were clearly visible

 

the objects in the plastic container were about five centimetres tall and about two and a half centimetres wide

 

at first look, the objects looked like mushrooms, only the stalks were noticeably hyperboloid in shape (picture immediately above this column of writing) and at the bottom of them were what looked liked thick white/grey roots

 

the cap of the mushroom-like objects was grey/brown with four or five red spots on it and the cap of the mushroom-like objects stuck out from the stalk by about a centimetre

 

my first thought was that they were sweets

 

i took the lid off the container with the intention of smelling it to confirm if were sweets

 

i don't recall if it had a smell or not but decided not to eat it

 

and that was the end of the scene of this one scene-dream

 

~~~

 

the dream the next night started as i had just gone through the front door of the house where i was staying

 

it was a two-up, two-down house and i had a bedsit at the back

 

as i walked through the hallway to get to my room, on my left, the door to the flat at the front of the house was open

 

i looked in and saw a man looking at me

 

i stopped and stood and glanced around the room

 

there were two men

 

one had a pair of earphones on and was busy adjusting knobs and switches of audio equipment and the other, the man i saw first, was holding a microphone and, as i was about to find out, was hosting a radio competition

 

the man holding the microphone invited me to be the challenger to the person who was on the other end of the phone

 

i've won a few real-life competitions in my day (the last one was over the christmas season just gone. in that one i won a handsome sekonda watch) so i fancied my chances, besides, what did i have to lose?

 

it was a three-question competition and the winner would be the one who got all of the three questions right

 

it seemed the quiz lasted about three seconds in this dream, but we're in timeless-conscious in dreams, and could have been three minutes

 

anyway, i won, easily, too easily for the quizmaster

 

he was one of those sorts of people who's got a bug up his a when it comes to smart a's

 

with an air of smug delight, his smile had broadened, he was the adjudicator and his decision was final, he pronounced the challenger on the phone was the winner (this may be linked to a real-life phone-in competition i was in back in christmas time of 1968. in that competition, i didn't win outright but was level with my competitor at the end of the quiz. the host of had to choose who was the winner and i was the loser. i felt i'd got the short end of the stick then too)

 

i looked at him with disgust, and he was loving it

 

(i'd have the last laugh though

 

the time would come when he would need a stand-in challenger again

 

he'd come knocking on my door and i'd tell him to shove it)

 

at that moment though, i was well mift

 

i turned away as quickly as i could so he wouldn't be able to gloat at me fuming and went into my room

 

i went to the other side of the room and emptied my pockets of bit's 'n pieces on to the top of a table

 

i turned around and immediately noticed that one of the mushroom-like objects, from the dream the night before, was on the other side of the bed

 

within a second, again, in timeless-conscious it's hard to tell, of me staring at it the mushroom-like object began morphing

 

it became a five-centimetre cat

 

it was sleek and had the body of a cheetah, although it had the face of a kitten

 

it began to walk along the bed towards me (it is at times like this i wish i had an expensive computer graphics programme and the skill to use it. i'm not going to attempt to describe its movements. the movements of the animal were out of this world. it wasn't flying or anything like that. it was the...)

 

i stood fixed, trying to make sense of what it was i was looking at

 

i was very slightly nervous, this thing could be or do anything it wanted

 

the man who had hosted the radio quiz was standing in the doorway

 

his teeth smile was bearing down on me

 

he let out an ordinary, quick, laugh

 

amazement, awe, incredulity... yes, but laughing, definitely not

 

i did start laughing, though, and woke to the sound of my own laughter (this is also the third laughing dream this year)

 

~~~

 

the movements of the, what i'm going to call a being, being are indelibly fixed in my memory

 

the time will come, i hope, when they'll be a little help on hand which will enable me to share some of the things i have to share

 

those of you who are new to dreams and dream theory... you are missing out by not tapping into your timeless-conscious

 

there's stuff in there that will broaden your view of life, and even enrich your life

 

~~~

 

it's possible that the one-scene dream was a "set up" i.e. the one scene dream episode of this serial dream sequence was contrived to arrive at the second scene

 

"set-up by whom?" i hear you asking

take a wild guess

 

this explains why I didn't win the phone competition and the out-of-context smile of the quizmaster

 

~~~

 

hopefully, this is the first and second of what will turn into a multi-episode, and if it carries as much significance as i think it might, it may turn into a multi-serial dream

 

we know from other episode/serial dreams they can span years

 

~~~

 

this dream has opened up new thoughts regarding evolution...

 

the writer has assumptions regarding how evolution occurs, i.e. all classes of the man-shaped being (summary: long version. part 8) follow the same pattern... primitive fish, amphibian, and several stages of quadruped

 

it's possible that within the next two or three hundred or two three hundred thousand or two or three million or two or three hundred million of the hundred thousand million classes of beings scheduled to emerge over the next five thousand million (summary: long version. part 8) years will go from a sophisticated "vegetable" stage to the quadruped stage

 

missing all the in-between steps

 

~~~

 

over the past three months, dreams and dream theory have been neglected and i've got out of the habit of remembering and recording dreams

 

perhaps this the time to start anew, and as i get back into the routine of remembering dreams i can tell you how i did it and it should be the same for you

 

but these dream entries take up masses of time to convey

 

putting this and the other entry together has taken three to four hours!

FIRST SCENE

 

IN ACCOMMODATION OF AVERAGE SIZE

 

 

WAS EATING CRUMPETS

 

TWO OR THREE UNCLES WERE THERE AND WERE LOOKING AT THE FOOD

 

GOT THE FEELING THEY WANTED SOME AND WENT INTO THE KITCHEN AND STARTED TOASTING ANOTHER FOUR OR FIVE CRUMPETS

 

SECOND SCENE

 

IT HAD BECOME A FULL BLOWN GATHERING OF THE CLAN WITH TWELVE MEN AND THE ROOM HAD GOT BIGGER

 

THIRD SCENE

 

WAS BACK IN THE KITCHEN

 

OPENED THE FRIDGE TO FIND ANOTHER COUPLE OF DOZEN CRUMPETS AND A DOZEN SCOTCH PANCAKES HAD MATERIALISED

 

FOURTH SCENE

 

BACK IN THE LIVING ROOM WHERE EVERYBODY WAS EATING AND THERE WAS AN ATMOSPHERE OF CELEBRATION

 

A LARGE OVAL SILVER PLATTER WITH TWENTY OR THIRTY SLICES OF BEEF HAD COME FROM SOMEWHERE

 

BREAD AND OTHER ITEMS WERE NEEDED TO MAKE IT A PROPER BUFFET-TYPE MEAL

 

LEFT THE GATHERING AND WENT OFF TO GO TO A NEARBY SHOP FOR THE FOOD

 

FIFTH SCENE

 

WAS OUTSIDE AND THE SURROUNDINGS WERE UNFAMILIAR TO ME, IT WAS GOING TO BE NECESSARY TO CATCH A BUS

 

SIXTH SCENE

 

WAS IN A STREET THAT WAS CURVED AND SHARPLY INCLINED

 

THERE WERE BUSES AND IT WAS BUSTLING WITH PEOPLE

 

IT OCCURRED TO ME THAT IT WAS GOING TO TAKE TOO LONG TO GET THE FOOD AND GET BACK TO THE FAMILY GATHERING IN GOOD TIME

 

SEVENTH SCENE (THIS MIGHT BE THE FIRST SCENE OF THE EPISODE DREAM)

 

WAS WALKING ALONG ANOTHER STREET WHEN A VOICE TO MY RIGHT SAID "HELLO JOHN"

 

IT WAS SOMEONE I DIDN'T RECOGNISE STANDING IN THE ENTRANCE OF AN OPEN-FRONT SHOP WHICH SOLD ASSORTED UP-MARKET KNICK KNACKS

 

HE WAS SMILING

 

EIGHTH SCENE

 

HE RAISED HIS HAND TO OFFER ME SOMETHING AND I SAW WHAT LOOKED TO BE A £20 NOTE

 

I COULD SEE THE ZERO BUT I COULDN'T SEE THE 2

 

HE HANDED IT TO ME AND THEN THE NUMBER BECAME CLEAR BUT IT WASN'T A 2 BUT A 3

 

A £30 NOTE WAS A SURE SIGN OF PROSPERITY

 

HE COULD SEE I STILL DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHO HE WAS OR WHY HE WAS GIVING ME MONEY

 

THEN HE SAID "THANKS FOR THE PHOTO"

 

I SAID "HAVE A GOOD CHRISTMAS" AND THEN REALISED IT WAS CHRISTMAS AND, AS I STARTED WAKING FROM THE DREAM AND REALISED I WAS DREAMING, I HEARD MYSELF SAY "OR SHOULD I SAY A MERRY CHRISTMAS"

 

~~~

 

AS IS BECOMING THE WRITERS WAKING ROUTINE, WITH EYES CLOSED, I LAY STILL IN BED THINKING ABOUT THE DREAM

 

AFTER HALF AN HOUR THE PIECES STARTED TO FALL INTO PLACE...

 

IN ANOTHER DREAM, A YEAR TO TWO YEARS AGO, I WAS THE OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHER OF A WEDDING

 

IN THAT DREAM THE MAN WHO GAVE ME THE £30 NOTE IN THIS DREAM ASKED ME TO TAKE A PHOTO OF A YOUNG MAN (A REAL-LIFE PERSON WHO HAD BEEN A REGULAR CALLER TO MY HOME OVER A PERIOD OF FOUR TO FIVE YEARS 20 TO 25 AGO)

 

IN THE DREAM OF A YEAR OR TWO BEFORE THIS ONE THE MAN WHO GAVE ME THE £30 NOTE WAS THE LOVER OF THE YOUNG MAN'S MOTHER

 

THE MAN WHO ASKED ME TO TAKE THE PHOTO IN THE DREAM OF 1 TO 2 YEARS AGO THOUGHT THE YOUNG MAN EPITOMISED WHAT HE THOUGHT A DECENT, CLEAN-CUT, WELL-BALANCED YOUNG MAN SHOULD BE AND WAS PROUD TO HAVE BECOME INVOLVED WITH A WOMAN WHO COULD PRODUCE SUCH A FINE EXAMPLE OF MANHOOD AND HE REGARDED THE YOUNG MAN AS HIS OWN SON

 

IN THE DREAM OF ONE TO TWO YEARS AGO THERE HAD BEEN A GAP OF 18 MONTHS TO TWO YEARS BETWEEN THE WEDDING AND THE MAN RECEIVING THE PHOTO

 

THE TIME-GAP WAS BECAUSE I COULD NEVER REMEMBER TO GIVE THE PHOTO TO THE YOUNG MAN TO GIVE TO HIS STEP-FATHER

 

THE MAN WHO WANTED THE PHOTO HAD RESIGNED HIMSELF TO NOT GETTING THE PHOTO AND HAD FORMED A POOR OPINION OF ME

 

HE WAS COMPLETELY SURPRISED WHEN IT TURNED UP AND IT RESTORED HIS BELIEF IN PEOPLE

 

HE HAD WANTED TO SHOW HIS GRATITUDE TO ME FOR SOME YEARS HIMSELF BUT, LIKE ME WITH THE PHOTO, THE CIRCUMSTANCES HAD NEVER PRESENTED THEMSELVES... UNTIL TODAY'S DREAM!

 

ANALYSIS/INTERPRETATION/

COMMENT

 

THE CRUMPETS WERE THE RESULT OF ME THINKING HOW MUCH I HAD ENJOYED HONEY AND PEANUT BUTTER ON CRUMPETS THE DAY BEFORE, BUT THAT'S THE ONLY ONE OF THE PDE's OF THIS DREAM THAT WRITER CAN PUT HIS FINGER ON

 

THIS IS IN SHARP CONTRAST, OR PERHAPS THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE, OF YESTERDAY'S DREAM

 

THE REALLY COMPLICATED BIT IS HOW A DREAM FROM MORE THAN A YEAR AGO SHOULD FIND A CONCLUSION IN THIS DREAM

 

THE ONE FACTOR THAT MAY EXPLAIN IT IS THAT THE WRITER BEGAN PRACTICING HIS DANCING STEPS WITH A DETERMINATION THE DAY BEFORE FOR THIS DREAM FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MORE THAN 15 YEARS AND WAS PLEASED TO DISCOVER HE HAD STILL GOT "IT"

 

THIS DREAM HAS PRODUCED THE OUTLOOK THAT DREAMS AREN'T JUST THE INFLUENCE OF THE PDE's BUT ARE TO BE EVALUATED OVER YEARS OR, INCREDIBLY, OVER A LIFETIME AND, C'MON PEOPLE I'M ONLY 25 YEARS AHEAD OF YOU, EVEN MORE INCREDIBLY, ACROSS LIFETIMES!

 

MORE THAN JUST A LITTLE BIT OF SATISFACTION WAS DERIVED FROM THIS DREAM

 

THAT DREAMS CAN BE THIS SOPHISTICATED BOLSTERS THE VIEW THAT DREAMS ARE A PORTAL TO UNDERSTANDING OUR INNER-SELF

 

QUANTUM THEORY OPENED THE DOOR TO UNDERSTANDING THE PHYSICAL WORLD AND IT'S APPLICATIONS ARE STILL ONLY IN THEIR INFANT STAGE

 

DREAMS AND DREAM THEORY, IT IS BOLDLY CONJECTURED, IS GOING TO BE AS BIG A BREAKTHROUGH IN UNDERSTANDING WHAT THE SOUL IS AND JUST WHAT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN OUR SOUL AND OUR CORPOREAL SELVES IS, AS QUANTUM THEORY WAS IN EXPLAINING THE WORKINGS OF THE INANIMATE WORLD

 

IT WAS OBVIOUS FROM THE OUTSET OF DREAMS AND DREAMS THEORY THAT IT WAS GOING TO BE A "BIGGIE"

 

POSSIBLY A NECESSARY PREREQUISITE TO BECOMING PURE SOUL (SEE YOU)

 

 

NOTE

 

NEW ENTRY... THE TRANSISTION FROM CORPOREAL TO LINEAR SHAPE

 

27082015

 

it was the same opponent and the same hall as yesterdays dream (below this entry)

this time though, we had a choice of three different swords ranging from a light, easy to wield sword, another one slightly bigger, or the same one that was used in the previous contest

 

i chose the same on as the first time

 

the contest wasn't re-enacted though

the content of the first dream was caused by thoughts during the day about how to deal with devolving man shaped beings who had an intractable bent for killing me

 

this, the second dream was result of thinking about the first dream during the day (as was the first episode i've ever had)

 

this is only the second episode dream the writer has had

the first, as a child of 9 was a wholly enjoyable dream

in both instances the content of the dreams were brought on by thinking about them during the day

26082015

 

the first scene was in a small hall

a serious altercation led to a duel

what i thought was going to be a fight to the death with a large, brutish opponent changed into a exhibition of killing skills

second scene

 

i had a large heavy sword

the opponent and i were 8 metres apart

 

the winner would be the person who could get to a block of wood next to the other person and chop it in half

third scene

 

i cut through the wood in three swings of the sword

and had finished before my opponent

 

1953, 54, or 55

THE ONLY THING THAT I CAN REMEMBER ABOUT THIS EPISODE DREAM IS THAT IT HAD PEOPLE, YOUNG PEOPLE, IN IT AND IT WAS MILD TO GOOD WEATHER

 

WHAT'S MORE EASY TO RECALL ARE THE FEELINGS OF SATISFACTION THAT ACCOMPANIED THE DREAM THE DAY AFTER THE DREAM AND THE INTENTION TO WANT TO HAVE THE SAME DREAM AGAIN THAT NIGHT
