this video is excellent. I suggest anyone who hasn't watched it, does so . . .
I certainly believe you transcend this reality when dreaming . . .
2 nights ago i was dreaming lucidly . I stumbled upon a building in my dream. I entered it and it was an office building of sorts. There were people
working on computers, drinking coffee, filing things, etc. Because i was lucid i approached a woman and asked her name.
"why do you want to know my name?" she asked with a timorous face.
"Because i'm just curious if you have one" i said to her.
"of course i have a name, but i'm not going to tell you, i don't even know you, i've never seen you here before. You're an absolute stranger"
"well my name is J, and i'm dreaming right now, i promise i am not here to hurt you; would you please tell me your name?"
she looked at me with a guarded expression but then replied
"my name is Mae/May."
I thought she said Mary at first, but when I repeated her name to her, she said “no, Mae/May, like the month.”
she seemed curious but still skeptical.
I asked what her last name was, and she wouldn't answer; she seemed afraid.
Apparently security guards had been called to remove me from the building so i had to demonstrate that i was in fact dreaming; so i froze her coffee
cup. Suddenly they were no longer afraid, but curious.
She introduced me to some of her colleagues; and also to the security guards. Can't remember all their names but i distinctly remember a Pete.
After that she seemed almost excited to be talking to me. She then said
"my last name is Quint"
pretty sure that was the last name, it may have had an added suffix, but the beginning was definitly Quint. Because i asked her to repeat it 3 times
to be sure i was hearing her correctly.
Then she showed me her desk, and i asked her what her husbands name was. She said her husbands name was John/Jon. (i remember thinking to myself
"that's a very common name, i wonder if she's making that up") which is funny because for all i know, i was making this whole thing up
that's all i can recall with detail. I wonder if she is a real person within our reality. That would be amazing.
