Regarding dreams, do you know of the white city? Tall, magnificent buildings, some castle-like. It is by the beach. The tallest tower has
everything--a beachfront shopping center in the lowest levels, a hotel with people dreaming, and danger near the top. Have you been there as well? My
closest friends have, as has my mother. I am wondering as to what it is since it appears to be a largely static environment, which is weird since it
is a dream.
My next question concerns a skinny old man in a suit and top hat with a monocle and mustache. A long time ago, I had a dream where i was among a group
of my peers and this man was making notes on his clipboard and asking us our names and things like that while we all stood in the wings of a large
theatre stage. In the wings on the opposite side were these half naked, horribly muscular, and sweating men who were pulling on these large chains
attached to the ceiling. And they were surrounded with the glow of what appeared to be hellfire or the fire of some large forge. All of a sudden from
the opposite side comes a galloping white stallion, atop which sat a half-naked muscular and sweating man with long hair (looked like a bedraggled
version of prince charming or something lol) and a woman in a white stole with ivy in her blonde hair. She clung to him and he clung to the horse. The
horse looked spooked and had fear in its eyes, its nostrils were flared and it reared before leaping into a wooden barrel/bucket full of frothing
water. It struggled in the water, kicking out its front legs as the man struggled to gain control of the spooked creature. And then I woke up. It was
so vivid I've always remembered it but I have never been able to figure out what it means.
Hi, to make sure everybody understands, this has nothing to do with shared dreaming.
Yes I am aware of some static places in dreams. I will explain how and why this happens. In different communities there are different persistent
realms in dreams, even a book it self creates what people think a persistent realm. But in reality they are not static or persistent. There are books
about lucid dreams, where author claims to be in some static place, for example 123. That 123 place was create by that author and it did exist only in
his dreams, but when people read his book they imagined how it all looked like, in future they might be dreaming in the same place, because it was
very well described in the book. You subconscious mind will one day trigger that memory and you will be dreaming in such place. But in reality that is
your own copy of that place that has nothing to do with authors 123 location. When people read the same books, there is an illusion that there is some
kind of static/persistent realm in dreams. It is not only about a book, a simple conversation between two people can trigger their dreaming in the
same location. Any myth, movie will do the same. For example if you and your family saw a movie about some gladiator fights, there is a chance that
you will all dream about the same coliseum, could be in different night or could be even during same night. But that has nothing to do with shared
Is similar to first answer, do not try to look for meanings in dreams. If you understand that process you should be able to think of past days and
think if you saw any similar scenario or event in your daily life, for example a movie, a story told by friend, a story read on web or book. 90% of
the time, all non-lucid dreams are explainable with such analysis. There is a complicated process going on in your subconscious mind, you do
conclusions that you forget about and you get ideas that you barely think of and you might dream about such conclusions and ideas and create a whole
new story mixed of many different past memories in your dreams.
I am not saying that dreams are that simple, there are very strange dreams that cannot be explained, you cannot even imagine how much weird stuff
happened to me during this 7 years of lucid dreaming. Some events I cannot logically explain until today. There are many things that are simply beyond
For example, there is a whole community of a dreamers who all think that there is a Labyrinth in a dream, with some creepy animals and monsters. In
reality, the first think you will find on their forum is a series of book that all describe that place. So people who join their community and are
noobs to lucid dreaming, they are all believing that that labyrinth does really exist. Well it does, but only in their mind, each person will have his
I am also aware of other persistent realms that people claim to exist. But they all share the same beginning.
