Fright night in dreamland

December 11, 2009

Last night was "fright night" in dreamland. One dream involved me talking to several family members around a dinner table about a Monte Carlo simulation I wrote, and asking them what they thought the answer was. I specifically remember my mom's mother being there (my grandmother, who passed away about 15 years ago).

As I was giving my explanation, my dad (he passed away 16 years ago) more or less burst into the room and asked what we had done. While we were busy talking, someone had stolen things from the other room, including my laptop and other expensive things.

This part of the dream ended there, but later I was able to follow the perpetrator, who did an interesting thing. He got some of the equipment to a certain point, but instead of taking the equipment all the way back to his destination, he left it hidden in the joint of a tree above eyesight. I don't know if he thought he was being watched or followed, but I thought this was very unusual.

Later that same night ...

After 3am all the dreams were bad. I was in a strange town in a strange land, and working with two other men who may have been some form of spies, or businessmen doing some very shady deals. The short story is that by the time I woke up this morning we had all been poisoned, and were dying slowly.

The two men were older than I was, and early in the dreams they stopped somewhere, and as it turned out, they were going to have sex with some women. When I learned what they were doing I bailed out. I told them they could do whatever they wanted, but I didn't want to do that. But while I didn't have sex, it was too late, I had already been poisoned, which I would find out shortly.

Bad dreams and drinking?

Once again you might be able to correlate bad dreams to alcohol. For some reason I decided it would be a good idea to put a bottle of tequila in the freezer a few nights ago, and last night I had some before going to bed. I wasn't very tired, so I had some to help me go to sleep. (Which didn't really help. I would have been better off taking some melatonin.)

Dreams take 36-48 hours to manifest

In today's final note, if I haven't mentioned it before, I've observed that dreams often correlate to something that happened in real life 36 to 48 hours before the dream. (I'll try to write more about this another time, but this has been very consistent.)
