Just in case we later-on draw up some lists of common themes, etc. I'd like to say (for the sake of clarity) that within my specific-location dreams,
I don't float the way others have mentioned and I don't realise I'm back at the same place or that I'm dreaming. So while I'm in those dreams,
it feels the same as real-life. It's only after I'm awake that I realise what's happened, i.e., same location, same people, details, etc
There are other dreams which are a bit similar, except I never remember them. All I'm left with is again, the 'feeling' of having gone back to a
particular place where I've been having concentrated contact with the same people. In very old posts, i used to try to describe it as being at some
sort of school. But as I can never remember the place or the people or what went on, it's locked up inside my head. A few times, as I've been in
the process of waking up, I've heard a tiny bit of their voices, still talking. Then it cuts out suddenly, like a switch. For a few hours at least,
after those non-remembered dreams, I feel 'out of myself' ... feel weak and ungrounded, as if I've been through something intense. So then I
usually go for a walk, because that seems to put me back to normal
Don't know anyone on this planet who has the answers. And I certainly don't. But the many strange experiences I've had (including the various
dream-types) have led me to form what are probably totally incorrect theories, such as suspecting our 'real lives' may be the dreams, with our
supposed 'dream lives' being the 'real' life
And the various precognitive experiences I've had (including dreams) have made me wonder if it's not precognition/seeing the future at all --- but
instead is the echo of the past. But even though that feels right intuitively, I haven't worked out a way to make it fit
Let's say we dream of an orange ball rolling slowly across a perfectly smooth floor. And then, days or weeks later, we do see an orange ball rolling
across a smooth floor. We'd say excitedly, ' Hey, I dreamed this very same thing last week. I even wrote it in my diary '
But which version occurred in 'reality' ? Were we really dreaming when that ball first rolled across the floor ? Or were we really
there right then, and was that the reality ... the original and true version occurring in time and space ?
Later, the ball rolled again. And again, we see it. Only this time, we believe we're in the 'true' reality and seeing a 'dream in the process of
coming true'. But are we ? Or are we merely echoes of ourselves, witnessing the echo of the orange ball event ? In other words, although we
believe we're living in 'time' which is running 'forwards', is it actually the opposite -- does time instead run 'backwards' ? Are our
perception and perspective skewed inside out ?
I know what I mean, but it's too complicated for me to fully grasp or articulate. Probably all nonsense anyway ...
