Indeed 25 (23 last time I had the dream). Not entirely sure if you're implying I'm racist, but if so I can ensure you that's not the case. There's
many reasons I find to not trust/dislike people, their color is never one of them. Actually, many of my closer friends in life would be placed into
stereotypes that most people wouldn't even consider you racist for not associating with them. I find that "dangerous" people have the most to teach
you about society/reality and have always given people the benefit of the doubt until I'm able to form an accurate opinion of their character.
Just an FYI, I've never read/seen 1984 (pretty sure it was a required reading in high school. I'm not against reading or anything like that I just
choose to read what I'm interested in, not something I've been told is important to read. To put some perspective around this I graduated with a 4.2,
3.7 unweighted, GPA while sleeping through high school.) I've also never seen Metropolis or any silent film for that matter.
I found the no reflection kind of weird as well, the person who suggested it may be a past life memory suggested that I focus on the mirror instead of
the baseboard the next time I had the dream to see if I'm actually myself in the dream or what, but I've yet to have the dream again since that
Rereading it triggered another memory of a dream I had where I worked in a very strange factory, but there's nothing I can think of in this dream that
would suggest the 2 are related other than it was in a strange factory.
It was my first day at this job, I was being shown around in an elevator, mainly the areas I would need in my day to day job duties. The job, and it's
very hard for me to put into words because it makes no sense to me, was that I would be "balancing" (don't have a better word for this) boxes into a
lift of sorts. 2 parallel pipes ran horizontally along the ceiling and then bent and came down to about chest height where they bent again to make a
platform (the platform never moved, it always stayed in the same place, ready for the next box) where I would place the boxes and they would start to
rise up and line up along the ceiling pipes, kind of like a conveyor belt but there wasn't anything there except the pipes that guided them along. I
never saw what was inside of the boxes nor did they ever tell me.
During the dream I was placed with a black lady for my first day to show me what to do, etc. Somehow she ended up dislodging one of her pipes from the
ceiling (breaking the machine or whatever it is) and was taken away by 2 men not long after to the elevator (this lady was never in my original dream,
but I guess could be the reason the family I stay with doesn't like me if the dreams are related). There were probably about 50 other employees in
this room and as soon as the machine broke I remember the room going completely quiet before the men came to get the lady. I'm not sure what happened
to the lady as no one would or could tell me, but definitely got the feeling it wasn't good.
The only other weird part of this dream that I remember (I could barely explain this dream right after having it and a lot of the details were lost as
soon as I woke up, unlike the original dream) was that elevator. They used it to show me around in the beginning and it seemed to be able to go
anywhere in the factory but once I had been shown around would only go where I needed to (work area, lunch room, and exit). I also don't remember any
buttons on this elevator or my work equipment, everything seemed to be automated.
I never even considered the idea that those dreams may be related in any way until today (and for the most part had forgotten about the factory dream
altogether), the factory dream definitely happened after the recurring dream and only happened the one time as far as I can remember.
Thinking I should definitely start keeping a dream journal now lol.
