August 14th, 2007 HyperCube Dream.

August 14, 2010

I worked late in the night and decided to take a nap on the couch. I managed to dream the following, but in a non-lucid state.

In this dream, I am sitting outside in a park playing with a hypercube. There is a lady there and she is telling me how to use it. The cube is like a very intricate clock as it moves on it’s own and seems to have features similar to a rubic cube and a tesseract.

She describes the cube as being fourth-dimensional space/time enfolding on itself in the form of information and data. She tells me that I have to find an entry point into this data to make sense of the information. To do this she says I need a means by which I can interface and render the context into a way that is coherent to my subjective time/space vector within this all encompassing database. She describes everything here exists in every permutation of time and probability. Think of it as a many-world interpretation of a choose your own adventure book.

I focus on a pin-point on the enfolding cube and suddenly I feel myself move into a tunnel vision view of information. Rather then normal waking perception where the view is more 180 flat screen, this tunnel is a near perfect circle with 3D rendered virtual environment.

How I am interpreting the dream is interesting and the lady is now a voice rather then a character attempting to explain this new process.

“You are now rendering based on perception your world-view of this information. How you direct your intent and choices within this limited decision space determines how the outcome of the adventure actualizes and becomes real, the rest of the data exists as probability only.”

I look at the tunnel and it forks into many decision paths and I can see many probabilities as she described but my interest is in making only one choice and traversing down one tunnel. The model of probability collapses and I am back to a coherent linear flow of information.

I get pulled outside the tunnel and she is engaging me again. “You have now serialized the data into an actual experience. You have a subjective interpretation of what that data represented that is now rendered into your memories based on your perception. This in turn creates your actualized reality which is the outcome of choice made within this hypercube.”

I see the tunnel based on my perception and it is now stretched out representing time and the time I was in the cube actualizing choices from probability. I can also see in a translucent state all the probability choices enfolding around the tunnel.

I look at the beginning and the end of the tunnel and it looks like spaggetti, the twists and turns merely representing choices affecting probability.

“Reality is more probable then actual, and it is through your free-will conscious intent that determines how probability collapses into actual experience. What was actually your reality was the result of choices”, she explains.

She suggests that in waking reality we are also interfacing with data and probability where-by our observation and choices creates the difference between probability and actuality. Two totally different states of the same data but only one strand that represents what actually occurred opposed to what could have occurred had choices been different.

“You affect causality with choice. This in turn affects the outcome. It is individual choices that affect how your life can be lived. You can have probable lives where you have died in a car accident, experienced nuclear war or lived happily ever after. None-of-this would be apparent to you because all you knew was what actualized as a result of your choices as you collapsed probability into actuality.” she explains.

I think about everything she is suggesting, and I find myself sitting back in the park holding this hypercube and watch it enfolding on itself like a rubic cube.

“Huh?”, I think. “That means our thoughts and choices are collapsing what is probable into what is actual at that time we interact with the data. We are effectively creating a low-order reality outcome based on these choices.”

For example, the choice to say something nice to a person could affect your entire future friendship with them. You choice not to could cause the friendship to fade. All of this deterministic probability exists at the time of that one choice.

What it doesn’t do is guarantee a wining lottery because you can only act on what sensible choices are available in terms of turning left or right. However in doing so, suddenly turning left on a street instead of right can have a seemingly butterfly-effect on what actualizes for your completed journey with the hypercube. I think about all these strange ideas and it seems to make sense. Choices affect causality… of course they do.

*Now keep in mind during recall of this, I have to translate every nuance of the experience into my native language of English and I hope that I have a verbal metaphor to describe the actual event in the dream. There can be lost-in-translation details and close-to but not quite what she said interpretation. This is memory and language limits only.

new dream
This dream is proving hard to recall, I know I am with some people I recognize and we are working together. It is not as coherent as the hypercube dream, it seems I was more interested in what the hypercube dream was describing to me that the second dream was less interesting.

I know there is a point where I have to go to the bathroom in the dream, the female wants to also have food and we encounter some problems making up our mind as to what we want.

What is funny, is this is actually a very long dream and there is a lot of events that seem to be there. I can get the sense-of-time as being quite long. I have these fragments of memory now like flash-back moments but the coherent flow of the dream is uncertain.

It was very mundane to say the least so I’ll leave it at that.

Just wanted to note, in the hypercube dream she also was showing me how other people’s choices are also affecting my decision space hence why their choice to launch nuclear bombs exist as probability so the outcome of that choice results in a probable death by nuclear fire. Reading the dream I realize I left out other people’s affect on causality and my reality when they also make similar choices affecting cause and effect.

What is suggested is that all probability has been predetermined not saying that is at all what occurs in waking reality but the dream was interesting to say the least.

August 13th 2010 – Semi-lucid dream.

This dream had a long sense of time for such a short nap ~1h of sleep = ~7h of dream time. I have had a couple nights of no sleep because I am back working and will be very busy focusing on projects so if I have a dream, I will record and blog but not much more after that. If you are new to the Blog, you will want to read a few articles to orientate you with my material.

August 13, 2010
Another night of restless sleep but did manage to have one dream that made up for all the lost time.

This was another very long dream, when I woke up I felt like I had been sleeping for hours and hours. I was worried that I had slept in but in fact I was probably only asleep for 35-40 minutes.

The dream started off lucid, as I turned the hypnogogic imagery into a nice sports car using a simple technique of integrating the three main senses, sight, sound and touch to facilitate the transition from being a rough ride of hypnogigia to a pleasant drive in a wicked sports car. As I was falling asleep and thinking about the car, the car slowly started to form. The more I organized the visual, audible and tactile thoughts, I could then touch the steering wheel and turn it. See through the windshield and see a road, trees and a blue sky. I could hear my hand tap the steering wheel. It became fully tactile and active and so I turned the car on, but when I hit the gas, it felt like I stretched my head in a very cartoony way for almost 100 feet, as if a part of my linear-logic was still focused in the small grey matter area of my brain not allowing itself to come along and the stretch pulled us apart and I was now passively dreaming, unaware I was in a dream. Damn!

The plot of this dream involved me staying with a group of people who were like family sharing a large house. One of the obvious symbolic twists in the dream was we went shopping for groceries and bought a midget for dinner. An actual male midget who was kind of slow and uncertain why we were putting him in our shopping cart. I reasoned it was a cultural thing so I should not offend them by speaking up about it.

The family I was with were talking about how great he was going to be for dinner and as I was obviously not fully lucid, the critical thinking needed to trigger a reality-check had yet surfaced. It was however starting the chain of inquisition that would lead to lucid moments in the dream. We drove home and I put the midget in a crib and was still uncertain as to why the heck anyone would want to eat a midget.

I went for a walk with the family and we walked by a park and were just idly chit-chatting. We stopped at a playground and their kids played. I sat on the grass. We finished after a while and walked back to the house. Now it was getting time for dinner and this was building up a lot of anxiety for me about eating their strange dish. They asked me to clean the midget, so I gave him a shower and this is where lucidity started to save me from what could potentially have been a really disturbing dream had I not intervened with logic and reason.

I look at this poor guy, he has all the signs of dwarfism with slightly malformed hands and a tiny body. “Why are you guys keeping me here? Are you kidnappers?”, he asks me.

I look at him and think, “There is no friggen way I am going to eat a person. There is no friggen way these people are going to eat this person!”. I feel a huge wave of compassion and love surface in turn I decided to put an end to this madness. “It’s worse then kidnapping, these people want to eat you, but I am not going to let them.”, I tell him.

I get him dressed and pick him up and carry him over to the people, “This guy is an orphan, he needs a family. Will you adopt him?” I ask.

They look at me and are then moved by the fact he’s an orphan and start talking about adoption. He is all happy that he is going to have a family and the dream has a happy ending. Especially for me, I didn’t get to eat midget. Yuck.

We went to a computer later on after we made a midget-free dinner and everyone ate. I am now friends with this guy and he really likes me. On the computer screen I am finding out that “Jim Carrey” is very interested in my dream research. The article I am reading describes him as being fascinated and intrigued by lucid dreaming.

On the blog there are user comments and some where posting pictures of geometrical platonic solids and other geometric 2D patterns. There was a really nice drawing of a video-game warrior in armor, very detailed and professionally drawn. The comments were all very interesting and were talking all sorts of theory related to how dreams use geometric matrices to create a digital mind-generated reality.

Then I start realizing I must also be dreaming, uncertain the dream shifts along with my new introduction of logic and I am now with Jim Carrey and we are talking about dreams. I am becoming more lucid and he looks aged, not as young as he is in his movies. He shakes my hand and is very genuine about how amazed he is by dreams and what I have written.

“This is really amazing that you can dream like that. It’s like having your own movie set, film-crew and production team, the whole time you are writing the script, directing the action and living as the star.”, he is very impressed.

Now I am lucid and looking at him, I look around at the dream and decide to just go with the flow, “It is nature’s Hollywood. One of the most amazing virtual reality simulators known to man.” I tell him.

He starts asking me about lucid precognitive dreaming and I tell him, “It’s a very similar state to any other dream you might have, except the lucid quality and the precognitive quality may not be apparent during the dream, however is relevant when the dream actualizes.”

“So you can be awake in a dream, know you are dreaming and then the dream can come true?”, he asks.

“Yes, it is exactly like that. However there is really no way to know if it can come true until it does come true which is why the paradox of precognition is so anomalous and random.”, I explain.

He tells me that he has had dreams come true, and that is why my work fascinates him. I tell him many people claim to have had dreams come true and it really introduces a wedge in how we view causality.

I don’t get much more time to chat about dreams, while in a lucid dream with a dream character in the form of Jim Carrey, and I wake up.

This is when I panic that I slept in… only an hour had passed.
