What do you think the differences are in dreams that have different perspectives? Sometimes my dreams are exactly like reality, I'm thinking and
interacting from the first person perspective. Other times in my dreams I can see myself doing everything, as if I'm just observing from a few feet
away, but I'm still thinking in the first person. It's as if I don't make any distinction that I'm slightly away from my body watching.
The third perspective I encounter, which happened to me last night, is a mix of third and first person. I was watching or observing someone else but
I was thinking as if I was that person. In the dream I was a young black man in a room filled with many other young men. There were plywood boxes
all around, probably the size of coffins with open ends. Some were stacked on each other, each of the compartments acting like a bed of some sort.
We were all in loin cloths, it sort of reminded me of the slaves in the movie Gladiator. There were a few dirty blankets lying around and many were
sleeping. Some played games or rested in makeshift hammocks. Then someone came to pick me up and take me somewhere. I know they paid money for my
release but I remember thinking it was only temporary. As I had left and come back to the place many times. But I felt somewhat comfortable with
whoever was taking me. As I said, my thoughts were very first person but all of my visual images are of being a few feet away from 'me', just sort
of watching. I don't know, it's very odd. But I was wondering if others dreamt like this too or what possible indications the perspective may
have. Thanks for the help.
