Over the last year or so I’ve noticed that when I’m about to drift off to sleep I sometimes dwell in a state that’s not quite asleep yet not awake.  In this state I see very clear vivid images, dreams, or visions.  It’s almost as if the radio reciever that is my brain is tuning to a different frequency. The reality of these “visions” are very dreamlike–they don’t feel like premonitions.  Maybe they’re just figments of my imagination, processing the days events, or perhaps they’re signals from somewhere else (the future? parallel worlds?).  Or maybe the visions/dreams are a mixture of the two.  In any case, I thought I’d share in case someone could make sense of what I’m “seeing.” 

Here’s a list of a few that I remember.  Sometimes they are just pictures, sometimes they’re like movies.

The Visions!

The Statue of Liberty atop a pedestal of junkyard cars – In this one old lady liberty was on top of a pile of rusted out, broken down carsIt was just an image but pretty clear.   I think it may have been an illustration.

Wartime Society-  I’ve had a couple dreams of a society–it feels like ours but not quite.  In this world, all of a sudden everyone I know joins a military force in the wake of some unspecified warlike act.  It felt like people changed overnight from thoughtful citizens to people who were easily blinded by government manipulation or wanted to join this “civil service” as a means of some personal satisfaction (a sense of duty or even using it for their own ends).  I remember feeling abandonned by the people around me because I saw no reason to join this military force but everyone else was.    In the dream whatever caused everyone else to join seemed phony or fake to me.   Maybe I’m reading too much into this one.   I remember the uniforms were dark blue, and reminded me of Battlestar Galactica uniforms.  It really seemd like not the standard military but a new “civillian force” that existed on top of people’s civillian lives.  I think people still had their jobs but would wear their uniform to them and the rank of the service would carry over into the workplace or something like that.

I had another “vision” in a similar world where there was a parade of the military through a town and some local track atheletes mocked the servicemen.   Despite the military culture of this society  it still seemed acceptable to criticize the armed forces in public.

Alien Research – I saw these labs which felt like they may have been underground.   The labs were very bright in some cases with metallic square tiled walls.  It looked like scientists were trying to manipulate a piece of a crashed alien saucer.  It was like a slab of metal.  It wasn’t very big but floated.  The scientists could get it to move but couldn’t control it or figure out how it worked.  I remembered I laughed during this one because of the sheer confusion and frustration of the scientists.  I felt they had sunk a lot of money into just making a floating piece of metal move a couple feet in the air.

In another part of the lab there was a huge piece of this metal.  It was wrapped like an ice cream cone, the base of the cone was maybe 20-30 feet in diameter. It layed on it’s side and  I got a look at the base of the cone which was the hollow end.  It looked like inside the cone was significantly bigger than the actual volume of the cone if you took it’s outside measurements.  It was almost as if space was distorted inside the cone, like some bizarre trick of calculus.  I thought this cone-wrapped piece of metal could be used as a craft.

Underground Storage – I saw what looked like part of an underground facility where there was an octagon shaped door to a chamber that contained lots of food in foil like packets.  The tunnels of the facility were white, like a pvc pipe.
