Dream or Remote Mental Infiltration?

I've put this here because it is about a dream I had last night, but I can see the discussion becoming broader than that... so my apologies if this should not belong here.

First of all, it is an exceedingly rare occasion when I can recall the details of my dream after waking. Most of the time I know I had a dream, but can't remember anything about it. In that regard, I apologize for the length of the description, but I wrote down every detail I could so that I would remember it. I've never had a dream like this before.

Second, I have historically enjoyed what some would consider nightmares, not because they are scary or whatever, but because of the feeling of relief I get after waking from such a dream and realizing it isn't/wasn't real. This dream, however, has lingered with me and made me think all day, so I wanted to share it and get some feedback.

On to the dream...

I am standing in a vacant parking lot outside a building I've never been to before and I know I am here for mandatory training activities for work. I head inside the building and find that what should be the reception area is just a large, empty room with about a dozen closed and unmarked doors. There are no signs or any kind of guidance about where to go so I pick a door and head through it.

As I am walking down this dimly lit corridor I can start to hear people talking; I must be headed in the right direction. I wander toward the voices while passing many more unmarked doors. At the end of the corridor there is a cul-de-sac of offices. I don't recognize anyone and the discussions are all just usual business chatter; this must not be the right place after all.

As I start to go back the way I came I am confronted by someone I do know (from real life). He promptly tells me that I shouldn't be where I am and briskly escorts me back down the hall of doors and sends me through one. Behind the door there is a long, illuminated staircase that ends at a concrete floor. Once I get to the bottom, I realize I'm in a hall with just one door at the end, so I head through it.

I am now in a rather dimly lit area, but there are displays everywhere and people milling about (all of whom are in business suits). Eventually someone guides me to a computer station where I begin my training. It is the usual corporate training stuff... business ethics, code of conduct, substance abuse policies and the like. After I'm done, I am escorted to the next activity in the adjoining room.

This room has a table in it with miniature tanks (military tanks), various environmental hazards, and a single red, remote controlled vehicle. I somehow know that I am supposed to navigate this vehicle through the pitfalls on the table. The catch is that this remote controlled vehicle does not have a physical controller, rather it is navigated by my thoughts. I get the vehicle all the way across the table without issue and then I am instructed to return the vehicle to its starting position. I do this, but very nearly touch a land mine looking thing right at the very end. The guy in the business suit in this room shakes his head and brings me to another adjoining room.

I'm back at another computer station and the training is asking me about various hypothetical situations and what I think the best course of action should be. Then, it starts asking me to evaluate statements in terms of which one I find the most disturbing. It deteriorates further to showing me grotesque images and again asks me to choose the most upsetting ones. I finally make it through all of the questions and am yet again escorted to another adjoining room.

At this point I am pretty rattled and I am apparently not paying proper attention to a business suit wearing woman who is trying to type up something about me, so she is scolding me and asks her question again. I cannot hear what she is saying.

I wake up from the dream for a few seconds, long enough to realize I've been dreaming. I fall back asleep and am at the same exact point, I still cannot hear this woman. I wake up and fall back asleep another 2 times, each time returning to this point, and then I finally wake up for the day.

So that was the dream. There are many things that I'd love to hear about... interpretations, similar dreams, etc. It should be known that this is the time of year when my company has us do our annual training refreshers on policies, etc. so maybe that's all it is. But I would also like to discuss the thoughts I have been having today as a result of this dream, which gives the thread part of its title: Remote Mental Infiltration.

I am loosely familiar with the concept of Remote Viewing. I haven't ever tried it myself or really researched it, but if it is possible, then could it also be possible to remotely view the contents of another's mind? Was this dream actually some sort remote evaluation of my psyche or an attempt to extract something from my mind? Thoughts?

I'm putting my money on this. Those "once a year" staff days for me were always a little extra stress and on our minds as the firm discussed preparations, agendas, etc. ahead of time. We always used Columbus Day because the public expected us to be closed. Several employees seemed to choose this time to be "on vacation" because they hated it so much. It was otherwise mandatory. I really donlt think it is anything beyond this, frankly, but thanks for sharing.

Depends. Do you have anything worth extracting? If not then I would gamble and say it's a dream.

It's not uncommon to fall back asleep and dream the same thing, especially if you have just awoken. I have had it happen several times. Sadly, none of the times were of when I was about to kiss Kate Beckinsale.

I posted recently about a recurring type of dream that I have that's extremely similar to your dream. I don't know how to add the link, since I'm on my tablet right now.

The jist of my recurring dream is that I find myself someplace that is supposed to be secret that's hidden in the subbasement of some large building. You may want to check it out. It may be the only thread Ive started.

I don't think I have anything really of much interest in my noggin. I'm an engineer and my company was recently acquired by a much larger company that has greater interest in government contract work, so my only wild supposition was that this dream was somehow trying to assess my mental potential for doing such work. I've been pretty frustrated with the whole "transition", so maybe that was part of it too.

I know it's out there. It just gave me this feeling of being unnerved all day.

I did look up your thread and I agree, there are some parallels there. Very interesting! Thanks for pointing out your thread.

Very interesting, I have also had a dream about being in an office complex, I remember being at the top floor, just a single desk and chair for the CEO - top of the pile. I then remember travelling to the basement levels, that was almost like an "office dungeon" filled with mess and papers, stick-it notes and desks scattered with litter. There was even a photocopier machine that was continually spitting out reams of paper, like it had a mind of its own.

Thanks for sharing.

My take on your dream is that maybe it represents the emptiness and wasteful nature of the corporate world. A whole floor dedicated to someone who probably does little to nothing while the lower levels are packed with the over-worked and under-appreciated... sounds a little too real to me!

With regard to my own dream, the feeling I had was that the doorways and puzzle were somehow a representation of my own mind. Then the situational and emotional conditioning were mechanisms that may allow some outside source access to the information in my mind at the location I was coherced to.
