TCUC MUni dream.

I dreamed that the TCUC held a MUni wheek end; when I showed up for the event, all the locals where riding 2 wheeled MUni gerraffes. Amazingly, I felt no lamer than I usualy do. What’s it all mean, I wonder?


Re: TCUC MUni dream.

It means that you should unicycle more!

In my experience you can safely apply this answer to all uni related dreams, acid flashbacks, alien abductions, crop circles etc.

Re: TCUC MUni dream.

It means that deep down, you want to pack your bags and move to TCUC-ville. I know I do. It sounds like unicycle heaven. Is anybody else in awe of TCUC? I mean, how many level 10 riders does YOUR local club have?

Are you just kidding with us? I mean, two-wheeled MUni giraffes??? That’s so cool! My unicycle dreams are very dull and unimaginitive by comparison. Like just me riding around and turning smoothly (only in my dreams).

Seven :slight_smile: but seriously, since there are almost no trials riders here I think I would like to move to vancouver for awhile…

“Someone once told me the grass is much greener
On the other side…
Well I payed a visit, but it’s possible I missed it.
It seemed different, yet exactly the same.”

Forgive me if I don’t confess to exactly where this lyric comes from.

I wish I had some unicycle dreams. Most of my dreams involve transportation, but not unicycles. Bummer.

About a week ago, I had a unicycle dream where I was in a lagre empty parking lot riding in big, smooth, sweeping, graceful curves. The kind of turning where you lean instead of jerk. I can’t turn like that at all when I’m awake. I was either on my new 29" or a Coker (which I do not own). I probably looked like John Foss’s avatar, only bigger.

Last night, I had the same dream, but during the dream I realized I was dreaming. It has taken me 38 years to accomplish that! I always, always answer the question, “Am I dreaming?” with the answer “No.” This time I got it right. Yes, I was dreaming. I recognized the dream – while it was happening.

Nothing happened after that. The dream ended. But next time, I’m going to stick with it. And hop on my two-wheeled MUni-giraffe and have some fun.

Damn it!!! I still haven’t had a unicycling dream :angry: . I’ve been trying for the last 5 years or so to realise I’m sdreaming during the dream and it still hasn’t happened. I know exactly how you feel about trying to recognise dreams while they’re happening…congratulations :).


Dream Diversions

15 years ago there was an article in Omni about ‘lucid’ dreaming; the technique was simple and worked well: progressive repetition of assertive statements by the waking participant. For the first week, periodicaly throughout the day state to yourself that you are not dreaming, and follow up with reasons why you know that is the case. On the following week, add to this regimen assertions that you will be able to recognise when you are dreaming, including appropriate indicators. Pick a night, and declair (along with the rest of the ruetine) that you will know when you are dreaming that night. The program goes on like this, building on previous steps, suggesting that you may try to start making small enviromental changes to your dreams, then work up to the big stuff.

The timescale was a bit long for me; the day after I became aware in a dream that I was dreaming, I told byself through out the day that I would be able to teleport at will. That night as I lay sleeping, with mushroomclouds on the horizon and wild gangs of looters in hot persuit, I became lucid- and was able to teleport for the durration. However, the next evening some insecurity crept into my sleeping self- persued by mobsters and about to leap fearlessly from the window of a tall building, it occured to me that I might actualy BE AWAKE. What then, if my thoughts of lucid dreaming were nothing more than the fancey of a crazed mind? I was plaged by sharp dressed-gun-toting villians until the alarm rang.

If you are interested, there are several perscription drugs that can cause vivid dreams- every night. :wink:



Re: Dream Diversions

You’re all scaring me.

by Edgar Allan Poe

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

Okay, Christopher. Perhaps it’s best you don’t share any more of your dreams with us. I mean, I love the two-wheeled MUni giraffes. I laugh every time I think of that. But that other stuff? Woah. Man, you’ve got issues.
