name of dream: carmen

 

there were three things in this dream that had characteristics which should be brought to your attention

 

the first is the sounds in the song itself

 

it was bizet's carmen

 

for those not familiar with the song you can treat yourself to it Here

 

there were twenty or thirty people in this dream

 

the people were in a circle and they began to shuffle in a slightly stiff manner when the song began

 

then, when the chorus began, the circle of people began to move more fluidly and began humming along with the tune

 

each time the chorus came in we began singing in harmony with it

 

our harmony was at a different pitch to the song

 

we then started to ad-lib the words of the song, believe it or not, the sound of the performers meshed with ours and the song took on an even more appealing sound

 

it was beauty in music

 

there may be those who scoff at the thought of the song sounding even better than it does

 

this is dream-time reality people

 

dreams are where your most daring fantasies can/will come true

 

the most relevant aspect of this dream was the chance to guauge how long the dream lasted for

 

those who know the song also know the song lasts for three, four, or five minutes

 

this was the first time it has been possible to get an objective comparison of the difference in values of the sense of time in dreams and the sense of time in the awake-state

 

if the difference in this dream between dream-time and awake-time holds for all dreams then the difference in time-values between sleep-time and awake-time tells us that dream-time passes at least ten times more quickly than awake-time experiences

 

if i didn't know the song and based how long it lasted purely on the dream i would have said the song lasts for twenty to thirty seconds
