Dreams, Lately

A cou­ple of nights ago I dreamed I was at a Guns ‘N Ros­es con­cert; they were play­ing Bon Jovi cov­ers. In the dream, I kept try­ing to fall asleep, but kept myself awake because I didn’t want to miss the music. I end­ed up wak­ing up ful­ly because I tried so hard not to fall asleep, while I was already asleep. I’m assum­ing that I was try­ing to switch between sleep stages but not let­ting myself do so.

Last night I dreamed that some impor­tant guy had cre­at­ed a new, puz­zling, adven­tur­ous world to explore; one of the puz­zles was fig­ur­ing out how to get into the world in the first place. I fig­ured this out before any­one else; it was as sim­ple as ask­ing the man for the key. Once inside the world was Esch­er-like, labyrinthine and full of junk. You had to sort through all of the junk to find the use­ful items for the jour­ney. I fig­ured out fair­ly soon that although the world was so large, none of the paths you fol­lowed got you any­where. I real­ized that this was also an inher­ent puz­zle to the world. Upon fig­ur­ing it out, I could leave and get a true adven­ture from the man. Hav­ing proved myself, I did so.

I’ve been play­ing both Por­tal and Half-Life 2 late­ly, so I think that gam­ing fired off that par­tic­u­lar dream.
