I've been looking for someone to connect with over this so I Googled this topic and was led to your thread!
I've never met anyone who's experienced something similar before. I can relate to your dreams because I have almost the exact same ones!
Like yours, my dreams always happen in some sort of vague metropolis (with a big sail-like building like the Burj Al Arab), but I must know it because
it feels awfully nostalgic when I "visit". I've had dreams in different locations (i.e. apartment block, board room, street roundabout) but they
always feel as though they're in the same city. Like I know, in my gut. These places remind me vaguely of hometown (Miri, Malaysia) but they're
certainly not the same and I haven't lived there for 6 years.
In my dreams I have no control over my actions, it's as though I'm watching events take place like a movie.
Like I'm looking at another me in a first person perspective.
The most vivid ones I can remember is where I got buried alive and stabbed in the back with a dagger by someone I knew in real life. Later on in real
life, that friendship with that person ended, mainly because of a misunderstanding but it never escalated into violence, it just lapsed. I don't feel
as though it was a warning, but maybe it was a sign? I'm not sure.
Other dreams I've had include a lot of people I know in real life, but their personality and behaviour that I'm familiar with, seems somewhat askew.
As if my dream versions of them were their polar opposites or adjacents.
I really don't know what to make of these dreams. I have a theory that this dream city that I have is a parallel timeline/universe and that the dreams
were my "bridge" to it.
I haven't "visited" in about a year though. I wonder why.
