second dream

 

the name of the dream

a contemporary building and historic buildings

 

can't make heads nor tails of this dream

 

*

 

an open-air sports field with the usual sloped-tiered spectator area running around it and a wooden fence enclosing it

 

not all of the stadium was visible in the dream

 

that part of the stadium which was visible, about forty-metres, was stacked with collapsible, wooden-slatted chairs about two, three or four metres high and went to the top of the enclosing fence

 

in the next scene, i am on top of the chairs unfurling a white thin canvas with about two or three metres of the chairs still to be covered

 

the scene changes: i am lying on my front on the chairs the looking out of the stadium and "casing" a bank in a one-street wild west town with a dozen or so wood buildings assessing the best way to rob it

 

the dream changes into a think-read dream and the message is "if you find a bag with money in it its because i successfully robbed your bank but left some for you"

 

still in the dream, i was trying to think why i had written the message

 

there was then a period of composing and re-composing the message

 

 

then, the composing of the message gave way to me slipping in and out of awake-time and dream-time conscious as i tried to remember what it was i had dreamt of today, thinking that the dream about the stadium was an awake-time construct and i was awake, when i was in fact, still dreaming

 

still in dream-conscious, i settled on the thought that at least i had a dream and was maintaining one of the longest runs of recording dreams on a daily basis

 

it wasn't until i came to the computer to make the entry that i realised this was the second dream of the day

 

notes 1

 

over the last couple of months, there have been several instances like this when the dream-time and awake-time have become indistinguishable

 

if nothing else dream theory is paving the way to getting used to the idea that the two apparently different states of consciousness are more connected than we realised and, most radically, the dream-conscious is the "parent" state of the two types of conscious

 

addenda

 

the category of the dream: dream-time/awake-time fusing (1)

 

first dream

 

the name of the dream

the incident in the hospital

 

in the reception area of a hospital with an awake-time acquaintance of twenty-plus years ago

 

not sure why we were there

 

i didn't need treatment and i don't think he did either

 

we may have been visiting someone

 

the person with me was talking to two female members of the staff

 

one was admin the other was a nurse or doctor

 

i occasionally looked at them as they were talking but was mainly looking elsewhere

 

the tone of the conversation changed

 

i think one of the ladies said something demeaning to my mate or he had said something which caused one of the girls to respond with a quip which was slightly derogatory

 

she said something like "what do you do then ?"

 

he didn't respond to her remark but instead went straight for her jugular and said: "how many lives have you lost ?"

 

the woman was hurt and stunned

 

my ears picked up and my attention became fully focused on the chat

 

he pressed her, "c'mon. you've saved lives. how many have you lost ?"

 

the women weren't going to take that sort of remark

 

one of the women picked up a phone and asked for dr birch

 

things had moved into the area which breached hospital protocol

 

i was thinking of telling him to apologise before it got ugly

 

the dream ended there
