Apologies if this is in the wrong section. The reason I didn't put it in the 'dreams' section is because I want to address the possibility that it
may have been something more.
I've only ever sleepwalked once in my life. I was about 6. It was 3:30 in the morning and I had, for lack of a better word, a "dream". This was no
ordinary dream though. I've never experienced anything like it, before or since.
What I experienced, or at least thought I did, was a "feed" of all the data necessary to build... Some kind of rocketship! I remember NOTHING except
some fleeting glimpses of blueprint-looking imagery, and an overall 'feel' of what it might look like when it was built.
AND I HAD TO GET STARTED - NOW!!!
So, think back to when you were a kid and you saw a commercial for some toy that you just HAD TO HAVE - maybe it clicked in your head that XMAS or
your birthday was coming up SO YOU JUST HAD TO GO SCREAM AT YOUR MOM AND DAD to please please get it for you... Imagine that excitement, X 1000. Plus
I was still asleep.
That didn't matter. All I remember was waking up in the middle of emphatically shaking my dad asking him over and over again for some nails.
They checked me for fever and shaken (them more than I) tucked me back into my bed. Never happened again.
You've all seen the Matrix. You know when Neo learns Kung Fu, or Trinity gets helicopter flying lessons instantly beamed into her head? It was
EXACTLY like that. Only they retained the info, whereas I instantly forgot it. Gimme a break, I was 6. By the way, this was 1977, I hadn't even seen
STAR WARS yet. Much less THE MATRIX.
Still, I wonder if one of my neighbors was some kind of rocket scientist. Perhaps he was "projecting" and I just "tuned in". Or maybe aliens got
the wrong house. Or the right one, and I just completely dropped the ball.
Damn. If my dad had just given me those nails.
I wonder if hypnotic regression would be worth the trouble? It's not something I put that much thought into but I've always been curious as to what
I saw. Even if it was 'just a dream', I'd like to know what compelled me so.
