I'm having the most bizarre experience. I am watching this video of a game playthrough, and it is nearly identical to a recurring dream I had when I
was around 5 or 6 years old. I had this dream at least once a week for about a year, and it could end different ways, but the theme was always the
same: I am in a hallway in an office-like building, and I come to 2 doors. One door leads to "safety" and the other door leads to an elevator.
Notable differences in my dream and the game are:
1) My dream didn't have a narrator
2) There were people I was familiar with in the dream (my sister, cousin, and dad were all symbols of safety in the dream), whereas the game is almost
completely devoid of any people
3) As I said before, one door would lead to safety, and the other would lead to the elevator. In my dream, the "safe" path would be a journey through
more hallways until I arrived at an office room (much like the manager's empty office in the game) where I would find everyone I was safe with (my dad
4) My dream didn't have the viewing monitors or the generator or the consoles.
5) In my dream, when I entered the elevator, there were always 2 people: a lady we knew from our church called "Martha", and another lady who I didn't
So there are differences, but overall, the exact appearance and feel of this game struck me like a ton of bricks. The familiarity is uncanny...
And another crazy thing about the dream... When I was little I told my mom and dad about it because it always freaked me out. Then I stopped having
it. About 6 years later, a lady started attending our church. After seeing her for a few months and wondering why she was so familiar, one random
evening in church I realized she was the other lady in the elevator from the dream all those years back. Also, this lady had moved in with the
other woman, "Martha" and it was something of a controversy among people at church. I told my parents that I thought she was the lady from
my dream, and everyone was like, "Wow, really?" But nothing much ever came of it...
Now it's been about 12 years since that incident, and I find myself this afternoon encountering this videogame which, as described above, is strangely
similar to the same dream.
What is it about that particular dream that has incurred two separate, nearly supernatural incidents for me personally?
Here is the video... Keep in mind that when watching the hallway sequences in this game, it is like looking directly into my past, like a literal
recording of what I used to experience as a child in my sleep...
