Buddhist Monks have been appearing in my dreams recently here is the latest.

Lately, I have been having some dreams with Buddhist Monks appearing as characters.  I don’t always have the luxury with time to write my dreams down but woke up early enough to transcribe tonight’s dream.

Before the Monk appears, I am doing all this work on a server through a linux terminal and was having problems with parsing a file using a command called awk.  The problem wasn’t the syntax, I had the code down pat rather it was the fact it was a dream and basically didn’t resolve the command properly but was great to be able to read and program.  Those who say you can’t read in a dream might be because they never developed the skill properly.  I’ve read entire books.  Reading for me is common.

When I left the computer I see this Buddhist Monk standing by a large window looking outwards towards a city.  There is a large channel with boats floating on the water.  It’s night-time so the city looks lively with lights shining through windows.  The realism of the dream was such that one would think it was reality again a quality of dreaming that has always inspired me to pursue this alternative reality experience of the night.

I know I am dreaming and now seeing yet another Buddhist Monk in my dreams having had other dreams nights prior the theme is by now apparent and I walk over to him.  He is wearing robes, his head shaven and like all the other Monks I have been meeting he is Asian.  I tell him, “So it is all a dream eh?” (yeah I’m Canadian).

He looks at me surprised, and to make it a little more challenging his English is not very good.  “What do you mean?” he asks.

“I saw you standing in my Dream and thought it would be nice to talk about dreaming with you.” I tell him.

“You mean this is a dream?” he asks.

“Yes, it is indeed a dream.  But the dream doesn’t stop here, I wanted to talk about all reality being a large unified dream.  Even the physical world is a type of dream world.” I tell him.

“I don’t know about that.” He replies.

“Really?  You don’t think the physical world is could also be a type of dream similar to the one we are having right now?”  I ask.

“How do you know this is a dream?” he asks and we sit down to talk.

“That’s easy for me, I usually always know I am dreaming.” I tell him, and I pet the soft cloth of the couch arm I am now sitting on.  “Sure, it has a quality of realism that makes it difficult to realize but all of what I am seeing to me is highly-organized thought.  This couch, the patterns, the texture certainly feels real but I know what makes it real is the underlying thought that programs the dream.”

He looks at my hand patting the arm rest.  He seems confused and uncertain but interested.  “How could the physical world also be a dream?” he asks.

“Like this dream, it is also composed of the same thought that is creating this setting.  It has evolved over time  in such a way to create a type of deep immersion where the dream becomes masked with continuity and persistency but the underlying mechanics that drives it is a unified field of consciousness using this type of dreaming as a highly evolved programming language.” I tell him.

I’m not sure if he really understands my metaphors and again seems very uncertain and confused.

“Look closely.” I tell him as he is still looking at the arm rest.  I cause the textured pattern on the arm rest to start to animate and it reveals the hypnagogic mesh.  “See, the underlying texture of this couch is all geometric fractal information.  This is what produces space within the dream.  It is like a computer graphic in many respects.  Hypnagogic fractals are part of the meshing system.”

His eyes widen in shock watching this change happen.  “How are you doing this?” he asks.

“Easy, this is a dream.  Very easy to change or influence.” I reply.

His eyes start to flicker and he goes into a blank state processing and processing.  I have his attention now but then he fades out.  The effect was interesting because his head expanded perhaps the dreams way of saying mind blown.

I was kind of bummed that he left because I wanted to pick his brain more but he didn’t really seem to offer much in the same tangent of conversation that I was aiming for.  I spent the remainder of the dream playing with some very friendly and loving animals who enjoyed being petted.

Not sure why all of a sudden there is this Buddhist theme in my dreams, each time I’ve been kind of schooling the monks on the nature of dream reality and its relationship to the larger universal dream we are having.

43. Ian Wilson in “Dreamscapes” | Lucidity, Precognition, Qualia & Interconnectedness

Ryan from Occulture offered an opportunity to discuss dreams and this is the result of that discussion. Thanks Ryan for a wonderful discussion.

We’re slashing through your subconscious like a nightmare on Elm Street with this supernatural sonic paralysis, and we’re diggin’ deep into the dreamscape in this one with Ian Wilson. Ian is a private dream researcher and dream explorer who has been recognized by members of the International Association for the Study of Dreams as a pioneer in the exploration of precognitive dream phenomena. Ian is also the man behind the website YouAreDreaming.org, which is a wet dream for anyone interested in dream research, consciousness or anything associated with these fields. Ian has tons of free articles, abstracts and ebooks available on his website, including a book titled “You Are Dreaming”, which I stumbled across a few years back and recommend to anyone with even a passing interest in this topic. We’ll be digging into the material in that book and much more. So why wait? Let’s curl up, close our eyes and cast this pod off into a space where the kick is something you get while you’re sleeping and where dreams really do come true. Enjoy.

This is just a nap dream.
Dream 1:
This is what I am writing:

When Dream Reality and Waking Reality Collide

Precognitive dreaming is often thought as a paranormal enigma and often tossed aside in favor of other worldly arguments. When for those who have precognition, the window of reality that it presents collides with waking world events. Theoretical physics such as M-Theory and string-theory suggest a reality of many Universes. Hughe Everett’s Many-World interpretation suggests the Universe sits within many states of probability and superposition in every possible permutation.

Dreams suggest individual experience exists within many micro-universes of the mind. An M-field of ideas and thought forming membranes and layers of dream data. What makes the dream real to the dreamer? The experience alone. No other person can touch the fabric that the mind generates in the form of dreams. Where the idea of thought enfolds upon the dreamer is in an endless continuum of micro-reality experiences when the dreamer sheds of one reality focus in favor of another.

It is in this fabric of dream experience that we see time and space expressed in a virtual model that mimics our sensory minds creation of waking reality.

I get about that far when I realize that I am not in waking reality at all. I sit looking at my very real computer screen and read the text I just wrote. I feel like I am really there for but a brief moment until I give up that reality to wake-up into this one.

Regular sleep… another rough night.
Looks like another night of endless interuptions to sleep. Two kids tag-teaming while one sleeps the other stirs, it’s been frigtening to say the least. If it keeps up, I’ll have slept all of half an hour. How I manage to still remember dreams is beyond me… it definately kills lucid dreaming, the time it takes to prepare and coax the body into sleep while the mind is awake can be a 20-30 minute process for me. One slight interuption and I must start at ground zero. This is why my lucid dreaming exploration is nearly destroyed with this lifestyle dilema. I can’t get the quality sleep needed to cultivate consciousness. I feel like I am in prison in solitary confinement being woken up every hour by the warden.

Great 1:50am, the teenager is up now raiding the kitchen turning on lights. Is it like this in every household, or am I just cursed?
2:20am, the girl is up stoping around, can’t really do much.
2:40am, the ongoing drama is unended… no wonder I am tired most part of the day.
Haven’t slept a wink.

Dream 2: Finally got some sleep, but obviously so tired that it was hard to remember these dreams.
What I do remember:

Talking with an older gentleman, white hair about dreams. He looks like Art but it’s hard to say because the quality of the dream recall is so degraded. We are however talking about different types of stages of sleep and how it affects dreaming.

Dream 3: At former work JK is talking with G. G wants money is upset about not getting paycheck. Doesn’t seem like a happy meeting at all.

Dream 4: Having a skeptical debate about the nature of reality with someone. We are talking about objective and subjective reality and how subjective reality is the only true reality that the observer creates, every other reality is merely a stage for the observer to expeirence a rigid context of ideas. We argue that that in their opinion the only reality is material reality. I argue that material reality is a stage, a prop for consciousness to experience. It will be stripped away leaving consciousness to experience self which is the true reality.

He argues that self is even real, that it’s a product of materialism and I argue that it was the self that first concieved the ideas that would lead to materialism, that all reality flows from the self, into dreams and then objectivity. All there is, is the self, that is what makes reality real. It’s a long winded debate over origins of reality, the causality delima of what came first the self or reality, or reality then the self.
