I'm going to elaborate on my different kinds of dream landscapes.
There are "grades" of dreams.
The first grade is seemingly meaningless, and not so vivid. I'm just going through the motions, and nothing spectacular is occurring.
The second grade of dream scape is where everything is stunningly vivid, and I can manipulate the environment. This would be "lucid dreaming". It's
fun, but not the best, because once I sufficiently manipulate the setting, all lessons are over. It's just for funzies. Often times there is flying
involved, exploring other worlds...things like this, but it's actually fairly limited compared to the next grade.
The third grade is highly symbolic, paradoxical, and often times multidimensional with layers within layers of meaning. What I mean by
multidimensional is being able to hold simultaneous perspectives within the same dream scape.
For instance, I can be having a dream of an alien invasion, and simultaneously view the ship shooting lazers and spawning aliens from meteor tidbits
from my POV on earth, while watching them detach and spew out from the mother ships above at the same time...following their decent and all.
The "layers within layers" are feeling impressions of tidbits from one sequence to the next, and each has... IDK basically like a synaesthetic feel to
it where I can relate it all to each other in many ways all at once. . . if that makes any sense
I have the same as you when imagining things, except it's very rapid and hard to hold the objects steady. Just a stream of feeling impressions that
have symbolic images related to them. It's not always, or even usually a concrete image of what the information is about, though if I focus hard
enough I can make it so.
The first grade of dream is basically what happens when not much seems to be going on in my life, and stress levels are low. The second grade happens
when I need a "hologram" to unload on, and have play time. The third grade is for when I've reached some sort of climax in my waking experiences, and
need to push through to the next level of existence. I don't always conquer on the first go, but if not the dream will reoccur until I figure out the
key to unlock the next level.
As for the act of remembering things in my environment, it really depends. Sometimes I will have a flash of the room from an above view, then as if a
zooming in on the object, or a feel for where it is from the topside flash. Other times, usually when I'm deep in thought of something else, I will do
the automatic style that your friend does, and kind of just be pulled towards an object and my hand will extend for it all the sudden, and then I
realize that I have what I was looking for a moment earlier. . . eh, guess that sounds a little too weird...I think it looks weird to observers,
too... oh well.
