not sure if this dream came from the pde's

 

notes 1

 

a story dream is a dream with the same theme and which can last for most, and perhaps all, of the time the brain/mind is actually engaged in dream sequences

 

this dream continued with the same theme for three different periods of time

 

the periods of time was separated by two brief bouts of awake-conscious and finished with me hearing myself speaking out loud as i woke

 

the scenes in the dream varied in lengths of time

 

one, in particular, lasted for what seemed to be more than half of the whole dream

 

within this long period, a whole saga of the same theme played out

(imagine a film which didn't change scenes for twenty minutes)

 

this dream is a new category of dream

 

for the time being, they are being called story/saga dreams

 

as their purpose becomes known they will probably be re-named

 

notes 2

 

it's now an hour since i woke and all i can remember of the dream are vague impressions from one bit or another

 

how we're supposed to remember the contents of something which lasts for twenty minutes i've no idea

 

perhaps it's the old practice makes perfect routine being thrust at us

 

notes 3

 

the thing that's becoming clear is that dreams theory is a big, big subject

 

there's no way i could have a family and a job and devote as much time to uncovering what's in the old noodle as is presently possible

 

it may be the case that to make sense of dreams we will have to cross-index the types of dreams

 

with more than forty different types already indentified, it means there will be more than One Raised To The Fiftieth Power (1 ^50) possible variations to cross-check !

 

and if you're wondering what the number means, it's telling us there are millions of more ways to categorise dreams than there are stars in the universe

 

hope you like a challenge

name of dream: mountain bike ride 1

 

three of us had just finished a mountain bike ride

 

the two young men were younger than me and had been friends more than twenty years ago

 

we arranged to do it again

 

in the next scene we were ready to do it again but one of the other two hadn't shown up

 

we set off

 

it was a thick brush with just an outline of a trail and it was more challenging than anything i had done before

 

in the next scene, we had to do a drop jump of about one and a half metres

 

it was the most difficult manoeuvre i had ever tried

 

the moment of hesitation and the drop and the landing was the stand-out part of the ride

 

i fully expected to get a bruise or worse

 

the other rider was out of the scene and i wasn't going to get left behind and make him come back as that would have blown my cred

 

i managed to lift the front of the bike sufficiently as i went over the edge and it was just enough to make the bike land on its back wheel

 

the bike hit the ground with a bump and my crotch hit the seat of the bike but, wonder of wonders, it didn't hurt and the bike stayed on two wheels

 

in the next scene, we were off our bikes and talking

 

the other rider looked at me with a serious look and said "i am getting a weight for a few hundred pounds

(he was talking about hash)

 

i was interested and asked how much i could get a quarter of it for and he said "ninety pounds"

 

he said something about keeping it to myself and the dream ended

favoured time-tense 7 or 9
