first grim reaper dream i can remember was a ww2 dream with
people fighting, i became self aware during the dream and
locked into the dream, couldn't wake up, the grim reaper
flew into the dream on a broom stick and looked at me, then
i woke up

another grim reaper dream was me in a room with him and i
had seemed to have stabbed him in the leg, like attacked him
or something weird, can't remember exactly

another grim reaper dream was 2 women i used to fancy, they
were kind of rivals who didnt' like each other, they were in
the dream as bouncing balls or something and the grim reaper
turned into a bouncing ball, it was so strange. the bouncing
ball had like a cartoon skull on it like the grim reaper's
face.

to have so many dreams about the reaper!

have you heard of jung's red book? never mind if not

you need to get a notebook with blank pages and draw the
images out. write words too after. it will be frustrating as
your renderings will, like... not do it justice, you know?
they never do; not for anyone... but this is how you
untangle it; tease out what this actually [might] mean(s).
like, expanding it out onto paper and then being able to
subsequently navigate around the paper, fill in details, you
see how this is a nice hack to handle something that feels
somewhat larger than your own head.

and, this: at least this isn't dull. maybe you really would
prefer all your dreams to be... hours of waiting at the
laundromat with nothing to read... but only just barely
above something gnarly/worrying like this. worrying, but
much more interesting

i cant draw very well but i can share my dreams on xltronic

i was in the attic room of my dad's place in a dream a few
days ago, i got up and saw a tv monitor thing with black and
white static. the reaper held my shoulders or something. it
was all very strange.

i guess the tv monitor with black and white static was meant
to convey something about the old days, because we use flat
screens these days. it was like a security camera monitor,
an old fashioned one.

ive had a few dreams about the devil too in recent times, i
was bumming the devil and the faces on his face were
changing/morphing between different women's faces. i had
another dream where the devil was bumming me. i had a dream
where i was in my grandmother's house, i stood up walked to
the bathroom, then looked in the mirror and saw myself with
devil horns. and the weird thing was a sensation of feeling
someone's arms within my body, like my soul was seperated
from my body and was independent.

if there's one thing i do know, it's dreams about houses. i
have had so many dreams where... i'm in a place i live, or
lived years ago, and i find some doorway i'd missed into the
neighbor's or something and...

...anyways, attic, old tv, attic, static, reaper... how's
your dad's health? heart attick

the attic reliably represents the storage of old things.
then it's your dad's house. an old tv. the reaper. you may
have your own health concerns but this reads more like it's
not about you precisely. at worst i'm wrong and you'll be
extra concerned about your pop for a bit.

the attic was done up to be a bedroom, my dad sleeps up
there, it was my room a long time ago, that's why i think
the dream was hinting at the old days, like 12 years ago or
more

when a dream goes to the attic, it's really not about you,
unless you're finding some childhood trinket in the attic or
such.

i feel like dreams are a fuzzy radio signal. you're getting
grim reaper, death. your dad's mum also fits, as it's your
_dad's_ attic? but guessing. all i can say is that dream
doesn't sound like it was about you really

the rest, who knows. maybe china is about to invade taiwan
or something. these things are like a weather forecast;
they're vague and often wrong

ok, so it was your room too, your dad sleeps there now. i
actually go back to worrying about your dad. too bad you
can't remember what was on the TV.

the tv had black and white static on it, like nothing was
tuned in

my dad's not getting younger, i am worried about him too.
retirement is next year, i dont know what id do without him.

shoot, sorry, now you've gotten me thinking about why...
when dreaming... i'm in a place i live, or lived years
ago, and i find some doorway i'd missed into the neighbor's
or something and...


once it was this giant concrete basement with loads of
doors, and i went out one and it was a totally different
dream after that -- and that was a totally abstract, made-up
house i'd never been in, but even when it's ones i have,
i'll wander through a hidden passageway and tunnel through
into some other dream. that i feel like it's almost a data
visualization, of sorts -- bear with me here

that memory is very very deeply tied to place. makes
biological sense -- if you're in a place you were attacked
before, you want that memory to come flooding back should
you find yourself have wandered back into it; freak out and
leave. survival.

also survival is navigating vast quantities of wilderness;
humans designed to cover perhaps eight or nine miles a day.
for that, you also need strong place memory. you need to
plan your route every day... and your dreams feed into this.
survival

that when i have a dream that involves, say, the last place
i lived, it's likely because my dream-brain has found itself
into the cluster of memories i developed living there,
because delving back into these old memories has somehow
been discovered dream-relevant to current dream-me

so seeing it as the old apartment is just kind of like, the
GPU is being used to mine some cryptocurrency and you're
just seeing hallucinations based on what it's accessing

i see dreams now as messages and metaphors from the creator

Joseph and Daniel were both good at interpreting dreams,
this skill took them to the top leadership in Egypt and
Persia

of all the people in the world who ever lived, that's a lot
of dreams you have over one lifetime, then combine that with
all of the dreams people have ever had, that's mega
detailed.

NAS the rapper said sleep is the cousin of death, i'm not
surprised i have dreams where i think ive died. when i die,
ill probably think im still alive for a moment, out of
arrogance

it's probably dumb for me to speculate any further without a
long actual vocal convo, that i am just guessing from
tidbits, but ~ grandmother is your dad's mum? if it was
about her directly, i doubt you'd have gotten attic. if it's
your dad's mum, well, how's he doing with that?

but i already am slapping myself because: no no no, you do
not have anywhere near enough context to give advice here

so beware of that. just trying to help. quite possibly an
idiot

yeah my dad's mother lives in the same street as me and my
dad. i sleep in my grandmother's place. my dad and his
girlfriend sleep in his place, then my aunt and grandmother
sleep in my aunt's place. lol

dreams are so universal, everyone experiences them, so we
have something interesting to talk about, thanks

so as the saying goes: dreams are not the same thing as
sleep

that before dreams, i figure sleep evolved because
everything on this planet is synchronized with the cycle of
the sun, the moon, for survival. the full moon is brighter
so animals can see more so they evolve to know animals will
see more and become more active during a full moon
themselves; more on edge. it's a runaway feedback loop that
drives more intricate syncopation around the base riddims of
the cosmos.

so sleep, hide away when it's too dark for you to see, when
it's dangerous -- and, heck, while we're here -- brain does
all sorts of maintenance. part of the problem with humans
going to space is the hours of lying down for sleep changes
the fluid pressure in the brain; think of it like a
dishwasher going on in there at night. that's sleep.

then dreams -- you're sorting all these crazy neurons out;
how about give the organism a movie seat into all of this?
might be useful

it is ever so amusing me to watch dogs dream; the way their
feet twitch and they yip a bit to themselves. sometimes even
wake themselves up

i was into my 30s before i realized that... since dogs are
colorblind, they must dream in black and white too. obvious
A leads to B, just never put a moment into considering

and wake her up.

humans used to sleep twice a day... or, twice a night,
really. there are references throughout history to someone
or other's "second sleep" -- that, they went to bed, they
woke up, they did some stuff, then they went back to sleep
until morning.

there is a lot of debate about really how natural this is.
that people had tooth problems, parasites, and sleeping a
whole night straight through was not as easy back then. on
the flip side, this did really disappear with modernization,
and there is a reasonable argument that not having electric
lights forced people into bed a bit more than they needed.

it's a lovely concept, really. the second sleep was
typically used for personal time -- hygene, poetry, fucking,
etc. kind of like shabbat. sometimes i've women up middle of
night randomly and give it the thumbs up. but i side with
the former lot from there; healthier to sleep it through.
but if your body is fighting a whole night through? second
sleep does seem legit

awake for 30 minutes or an hour, then go back to sleep.

there's a few ppl on yt who, through a lot of conditioning
and buzzer tech, talk to their pets. it's all done via
one-paw-press technology. plus months of practice,
eventually there's video of dog waking up and hooman asking
him about his dreams, and the dog is like "other dog"
"bone", "my bone". it's like, dog, we get it

everything evolves around sunrise and sunset. the rabbits
sleep twice because they're chased by both the dogs and the
cats; the cats sleep often because they're chased by the
dogs and dogs go to sleep at dusk. but everyone gets up at
sunrise together. unless you're in nocturnal kru, then
there's a whole other... syncopated vibe

dogs are very eager mirrors. i think you'll find the dogs
that shock you with their word clever are the dogs whose
owners actually talk _to_ them. i mean, asking a yellow lab,
"would you like dinner?" produces and obvious reaction, and
okay, you understand that much. but you can reach a point
where... my mom would tell the dog, "go get epics up" and
the dog would run upstairs and start tugging on my
bedsheets. absolutely no one taught the dog a damn thing in
this regard. one day mom just told the dog to do it out of
frustration, and it worked, so she kept telling the dog to
wake me up.

to clarify: my mom was not frustrated with me, she was
frustrated with the dog. who was sassing her, i'm bored, i'm
bored, let's do something, as she's trying to sort out
breakfast or whatever. and it was kind of like "oh HELL i
have enough to do -- if you want to do something, go wake up
epics" and dog was all ON IT

no, sadly, lease does not allow it. hell, none of 'em ever
have said "ok dog" -- it's more like "you can have a cat or
small pet, MAYBE" as i am priced out of home ownership i am
priced out of dog, really. i'm probably too unreliable on my
own anyways without some backup

that was a yellow lab. had labs growing up. living with
people, been able to borrow peoples' dogs. generally, i
can't abide small dogs; short-haired terriers are alright
there, though. a belgian malinois; biggest teef... biggest
jaw... i've ever seen on a dog. i was terrified of him at
first, then, pat pat, hop up on the couch? and the dog would
literally violently attack anyone he didn't know but once he
knew you he was just a normal dog. but probably my favorite
was a mix of husky and german shepherd. i know huskies are
difficult. but they were just the most hilariously
entertaining dogs

i've also considered getting a rabbit or something. just
knowing it will be a stupid idiot of a pet, but also very
easy to deal with
