Disclaimer: I don't interpret other people's dreams, but some dream motifs and characters are dreamt by many, many people, and I sometimes
recognize those motifs and characters. I can tell you what several of the people who have dreamt dreams like yours have thought about their dreams,
but only you can decide whether that has anything to do with your personal dream.
Thank you for answering my question. Let me just discuss the dream in its own terms, and how it relates to dreams like it that many people dream, and
leave the application to your particular personal life, if any, to you.
The setting, or dreamscape, is very popular, and there is even a name for the type. It's called a Waste Land (like in the poem or the degraded state
of Arthur's kingdom... and in many other works of art and literature... and dreams). The typical basic plot of stories, dreams and otherwise, which
are set in the Waste Land is that it gets redeemed, or restored.
So, in a very spare dream, set in a very spare dreamscape, you have a big honking symbol of your whole Self, a rectangle. And the waking you is a back
corner of it. Lol, there's no prize for recognizing the title of that picture: there is more to the whole Self than just the conscious waking self.
The subtitle would be that there should be cooperation among all the parts of the whole Self.
And there is plenty of cooperation and coordinated action in your dream. The waking self is interrupted by factors beyond your control, and both
willingly and effectively cooperates with Ramirez, another aspect of you, a "central casting" character representative of unconscious contents (his
baby is an elegant token of his generativeness; nice touch).
Now, the odd thing is, in a motif dream like this, if the dreamer does the "right thing," then the expected outcome is that the dream resolves, and
it doesn't recur. But even though you do a hero deed, the Waste Land persists, and then you dream the whole thing all over again.
Hmm. Here's my guess about that. While you're still in formation, ask Ramirez to introduce you to the guy in the middle, the guy with the
radio, the guy who can produce help.
I don't know the plot from there, but that's where the biggest sore thumb is in the usual symbology (that there even is a guy in the middle, that
you don't know his name, and yet he's the one with the key to resolving the situation, the radio that summons a hell of a lot more firepower than
what you're carrying, as nice as that is for a personal weapon). Fix that, and see what happens.
Many people find dreams like this to be positive, even if yours is being a little bit of a pain in insisting that you deal with it. Good luck with it.
