I'm getting out of my body and I know I'm in a dream. It's in some church. While excited to be finally having an OBE dream again, I'm thinking this isn't as good as moving around my body in real life, instead it’s a little futile because I'm just in a dream landscape that isn't real. This makes me try to think of a way to make my dream affect real life.

I'm playing an extremely elaborate role-playing game that’s on a virtual reality set. I witness my opponent trying to cut out the onyx heart out of a woman from the Tudor era, but he's been fooled, because she’s inside of a "shell" that’s identical to her appearance on the inside of the shell.

In a lucid dream in a classroom, I say, "Is Professor Cho here? Because I have to tell him his work will change the world and space travel." I tell a couple there almost the same thing, "Don’t give up, the world depends on you." I start to fade, but I know I have to talk to the professor before I wake up. But I wake up anyway.

I wake up, relieved it was a dream.

The family grew up with and I head into the area where the Kennedy family is having a party, but we’re diverted around that. Beyond that, we’re find our bikes and begin riding. But there’s a motorbike without a driver going by itself. I wonder how that’s possible … is it a Google bike? But it doesn’t make me lucid.

I’m pulling a dog through a strong current, while sitting on a motorcycle that’s completely submerged (precog of the motorcycle scenes I just watched in Cloud Atlas).

I discover my mother is still alive and living a lonely life by herself and it makes me sad. 

I wake up and think, Well, you’re living a lonely life, too, and no one feels sorry!

A dream in which I’ve suffered some kind of brain damage and can’t remember huge chunks of my life. But then it gets better, I start remembering (this was a long dream so I’ve forgotten many details). Mom is there and she shows me some of my old paintings, which I remember (however they were dream memory paintings and weren’t familiar to me once I woke up). My dream journal that I kept on paper for years is in there, too. But I don’t want anyone to see THAT, because I remember I wrote even my x-rated dreams down in it rather explicitly. 

Then, at the dinner table, my other (dream) sister was missing and so was another (dream) brother. In my mind’s eye, I can picture them clearly (and yet after I woke up, they were also completely unfamiliar to me). The atmosphere is good, we’re all at a dinner table piled high with good food.

I wake up.
