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 four to five minutes


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


if the difference of the sense of time in this dream holds for all dreams then 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
