Generally when we wake up in the morning our dreams fade and are forgotten. we look towards what we have to do for the day; go to work, go to school,
go fishing. We can say that our dreams are temporary.
In practical terms we can say that the schizophrenic does not completely wake up and the dreamstate endures. That the dreamstate is persistant into
waking life as an overlay.
Therefore dreams can be persistant.
So let's have a peek into my initial encounter within the schozophrenic mind of a human child. The dreamscape of the child.
The dreamscape is very much a dark suburban streetscape. A few streetlights illuminate the scene and the rest is in darkness. To the left is a
cowering frightened child. So we wait to see what happens within this child's dream. We leave the child alone and do not interfere. A this point we
are the observer and nothing more.
To the right a man enters the dream. We watch him as the observer. At this point neither the child (dreamer) nor the man notice us as far as we can
tell. We are still the observer within the girl's dream.
The man is searching for something. He is moving quickly and with some determination.
Then he sees the girl (dreamer), and immediately moves towards her.
As the observer, we have determined the girl is frightened and doing her best to not be noticed.
The man is looking for the girl and has found her.
It is not hard to determin that the man is quite likely the reason the girl (dreamer) is scared.
Therefore we can determine the man is dangerous, at least to the girl.
As the observer, we could do nothing. We could watch what the man does to the girl.
Or we can choose to intervein. Personally I don't like the idea of watching a girl get terrorised and not doing anything about it when I can.
So we intervien. We grab hold of the man by the throat violently, afterall he, in all probability, intended violence.
However, we find that the man is startled more than anything. Then we realise the man is probably a projection. He is probably another dreamer, astral
traveler or even a deceased person who has accessed the child's dream. It is also clear that the girl (dreamer) did not create him, this man, like
myself is not native to the dream, he is an intruder as am I.
So we have to find the source of the intrusion. It does not really matter if the man is a deceased person or a living person who is projecting or
dreaming. He should not be there if his intentions are to harm.
What we want is to convince him to leave the child (dreamer) alone and not come back. I chose to terrorise him convincingly.
We then return to being the observer.
Nothing more happens, so we leave the dream.
The point of this is to illustrate that dreams can be shared and interactive.
Therefore: persistant shared interactive dreams.
What was achieved:
* The girl (dreamer) learned that something can intervien on her behalf.
* The man (intruder) learned that something can harm him on her behalf.
We did not interact with the girl at all. Not before nor after the attack. This is important.
She is frightened and probably very suspicious of everything that she encounters in the dreamstate. We would be no exception and would probably be
seen as a threat.
So the principal here is not to act directly upon the dreamer. We are not here to "save" or "cure" her.
At this stage in the process we are only hereto clean up the dreamscape. To make it a safer, and a far more pleasant place to be within.
The analogy here is we are here to clean up a child's room. We are just cleaning up around her and nothing more.
What we want to do in the initial stage is to turn the nightmare into a pleasent dream. The rest comes later.
