name of dream: box montage (1)

 

woke from sleep still feeling a bit sleepy

 

changed position in bed a couple of times and relaxed

 

a regular montage began

 

after a dozen or so scenes the format of the sequences, all of which had motion, the sequences began showing in a rapid/runaway style

 

the sequences became too fast to take in

 

then, the format changed from single sequences to a group of sequences of between eight across and the same number of sequences down and they were all the same size, hence the name box montage

 

well, it's one thing to have a "one-image-a-time" montage but this new format... it was like giving a child the keys to a sweet shop

 

first of all... they were all in colour and all had motion

 

it was possible to view one "box" then go to another, look at that, and then go back to the one before

 

none of the sequences watched was looped

 

how long each one would last i didn't discover

 

when you've got fifty or more films to watch you want to take a quick look at each one before deciding to view, which is what i did

 

after two minutes or thereabouts the assembly of films had other sequences forming at the corners and at the side

 

it struck me... i could go on with this for hours

 

so i turned over and opened my eyes and looked at the wall clock to see what time it was

 

it was still early and there was nothing pressing to do so i rolled back into my previous position ready to indulge myself

 

closed my eyes and went to continue where i had left off less than a minute before

 

couldn't summon the images though

 

i felt like i had been robbed

 

still, the sequences before i opened my eyes was still fresh in the memory so it would have to be re-runs

i couldn't get the freeze-frame option to work in this box montage, nor the replay

 

it was possible to zoom in with some of the films

it was only a few weeks back (04122017) when replays of montage sequences were the latest cool faculty of the dream state

 

a week later (09122017) the latest and greatest new faculty was the freeze-frame, and now this

 

how many new faculties are there going to be ?

the dream in the sleep which came before waking up had some cool special effects in it

 

a quick mention of it... was walking through thick grass which came up to my shins in an open expanse of the countryside

 

something in the distance caught my eys and i started running towards it

 

after ten strides i ran off the cliff and was plummeting through the air to a river or stream eight hundred or more metres down

 

the scene was similar to the gorge in pic 2, only the gorge in the dream was twice as deep and there was thick foliage everywhere

 

instantly, i knew i was a goner

 

and instantly after that thought, a thick bush about half as big as a house and growing sideways out of the cliff about thirty metres below me came into view and i landed in it

 

it meant breaking branches to get to the cliff-face which took a while and when i got there, the dream went from participant to observer at this point, the wall broke and the pieces it broke into were all squares and dissolved out of existence before reaching the ground

 

a sense of adventure gripped me and some exciting things began

 

after seven or eight scenes the dream became fairy-tale like and i knew i would have to remember it for dreams diary

 

i woke up and it took thirty seconds to get the voice recorder ready for use

 

i began talking the notes of the dream into the voice recorder and after i had dictated to the bit of the dream when the wall dissolves i couldn't remember what happened after but do remember it had a sense of fantasy

 

pity about that

 

addenda

the stand-out part of the dream: the wall dissolving

 

the significance of the stand-out part of the dream: the dream would have become a new category of a dream... fantasy-reality

 

thinking about the dream and what the awake-time circumstances would have to be for it to happen are being held back until we get going

 

participant and observer

 

category of dream: fantasy reality (1)

 

notes 1

 

again, the semi-sleepy state comes over as being the best frame of mind to be in to bring montages into being

 

another consistency is the awake-time time-sense that accompanies them

 

and further, the post-sleep state of consciousness is the time when montages are most likely to occur

 

so, upon waking and without opening the eyes is the best time to try it
