"Dream Prison Construct", interesting concept that could explain a few things. For me lucid dreaming is a fail-safe. In case my dream goes bad or
too weird I can assert control over everything to a degree.
I remember once when lucid dreaming failed me, when it totally didn't work.
In my dream state(first of a seemingly never ending series) I "woke up" in my bed to hear pounding on the laundry room door(my room led to the
laundry room, which had a door to outside in it) leading outside. I opened the door to this frantic old guy trying to get in, but before he could a
weird person wearing some kind of weird black cloak+black hood+ black cloth mask killed the old guy with an even weirder weapon.
It was like a long sword, but with a scythe blade coming out of it half way up. I think I pushed both the corpse and the creep out and locked
the door. From their I ran to my dad's room and grabbed a rifle(didn't realize I was dreaming yet) and went out into the dining room(which had a
large window overlooking a downward sloped hill in the front yard).
That is when I seen about a dozen or so of these creeps running up the hill towards the house. So naturally I fired the rifle at them. It had
little effect; they would just fall down, turn to smoke and reconstitute themselves.
Well I kept firing, that is when I noticed something pretty significant.
The glass window I have been shooting through wasn't breaking but warping as the bullets passed through. That is when I realized I was
dreaming and traded up the rifle for a full-auto. That didn't work either.
So I made a super navy seal type projection to eliminate them. It seemed to work till one of them materialized behind my projection and then gave
him a smiley from ear to ear kind of thing.
At that moment they all appeared outside at the base of the window trying to smash their way in. Eventually the glass started to break and one of
them turned into smoke and reformed next to me. Went to strike me with it's weird weapon, I went to block. At the moment of impact I woke up.
For years afterward I would have nightmares about being chased by the weird "people". Sometimes in their robes, sometimes in plain clothing+hoodies
hiding their faces. It didn't end until one dream I was running and came to a slight hill that seemed bathed in light(at this point my dreams where
losing color and light). At the top of the hill was an unusual sword in the ground. It was four-sided and seemed to be the source of the "light
bathing the hill".
When I used the sword against the creeps, they didn't go "poof" like before, they seemed to disintegrate or burn up at an almost atomic level.
Since that last one my dreams stabilized. Back to normal and I haven't dreamed of the creeps since.
But I do remember once, back in 2003 when i stopped by Mcdonalds after school. I was eating and just felt weird, so I stretched a bit and turned
around kind of to stretch my back. That is when I noticed a slightly middle aged guy grilling me pretty hard + he was talking through some kind of
small walky talky kind of thing.
the main thing that freaked me out was when he noticed that I noticed that he was staring at me he had an "ohh s&^%$" kind of look and
quickly put the walky talky away. But that could of been related to something else or just a weird coincidence.
Either way the thought that someone else can impose their will on us while dreaming is very alarming.
