Short story time. Fiction? You decide…
By now, most of our readers know I am a huge fan dream research and I’ve been doing copious amounts of personal “dreamwork.” My book on topic (“Psychocartography: Mapping the Human Dream”) has managed to become one of the least-read books on Kindle. Yet I persist in the work. An addiction?
Several reasons, truth be told. Every time I “visit” the Dream Realms I notice different apparent compass headings. Most of the time, they are orthogonal (right angles or perpendicular) to waking-state compass directions. In one night’s dream, recently, the landscape was oriented South where in the waking state, the same cast of characters encountered (when still alive) would be East.
Oh yeah…another detail: No barriers between living people and those who have passed on over there.
Another frequent “pay-off” for bringing dream content into this world – and taking pieces of this world over to the Other side – seems to be occasional lessons and insights into the “mechanics of Life.”
Take last night…when I encountered…
The Doctor-Patient File
Like many of my dream adventures, this one was exceptional in all regards.
I’d spent a restful night, barely moving the sheets, in the “waking world.” But in the dream realms? It was an exceptionally busy night.
My wife Elaine figured prominently both in this dream and back “here” – so on both sides of waking. Soulmates will do this, I’ve learned.
As I “wakened [there, into the dream world], I became aware of being in a “doctor’s office.” It was in a medical center we had previously visited. I’d written that up in my book several years ago. It was a visit for Elaine… but in this visit, it was for me.
When the dream ended, I awaken back here in the “normal waking world” to a several pages of notes in hand that I began to read with great interest… because it brought my memories rushing back.
“Patient Regression Notes”

Third visit. Patient arrived with mate, Elaine Bjornsen. Complaints were again centered around disturbing sleep-time visions. Claims of visiting another “world.”
Began a standard regression attempting to source trauma and began asking detailed questions about these sleep-state visions.
Regression began at 438599 and patient gave unusual answers:
Q: Describe the world in your visions:
A: “I see inhabitants who call themselves “People” and they seem to come in many colors of skin, speaking many voices, with a wide range of beliefs, odd forms of “exchange” and near as I can tell, no particular globally-shared goals. These “people” (as they call themselves) live in constant fear of something called “death.”
Q: What is this thing they call “death?”
A: “These people believe there is an end to their world. When their physical bodies will cease to exist. It haunts them and makes them act in unpredictable – sometimes crazy – ways.”
Q: What else about these “people?”
A: “They are also driven by “sexual drives.” Though somehow they are confused now; they were once attracted to “opposites” but as they have evolved, they are attracted to any other of their type that offers….hard to explain it…
Q: How does this world work? Its purpose? Function?
A: “I can’t seem to make one out. Some of them are driven by “money.” But, their “money” which once had a stated rate of exchange is not floating so its value is unpredictable – just like the people. The inhabitants get up every day and engage is activities that are only indirectly related to the gathering of this thing called “Money.”
“Not everyone, though, is engaged in money? Yes…I see there are other people who just want to live a quiet life and share among themselves. But there are few of these.”
“Others, who are drawn into what they call “politics” are driven to power and dominance over others. Those who can’t do this is real life are so driven that they have taken to electronic machines in order to “pretend” to be “leaders” when they are not…”
Q: Do these “people” as you call them have normal powers?
A: “No. They do have a lot of interest in socializing, and they engage in work-groups. But they seem unable to agree globally on much of anything. I’ve counted at least seven major “areas of interest” where regions are somewhat aligned on a purpose, but not at any overall level.
“But no powers…not really. I mean they can’t fly, or anything. And they may never quiet their minds enough for telepathy to take hold…so no ‘powers’ yet.”
Q: Do you see a future for this world in your visions?
A: “It seems bleak at best. There is a building sense of inevitable collapse. Females are becoming afraid to bear children. They’re not sure there will be food, water, or even air to breathe.”
Q: Does this place have a name the inhabitants call it?
A: “Yes – they call it Earth.”
Q: How do represent that in their own symbology? Do they have written forms?
A. “It looks like… let me draw it for you…
Q: I see… Do you remember anything else?
A: “Yes, their directions are different than here. They have a tactile thing called “weather” and it sometimes causes water to fall from the sky.”
I woke the patient from regression with a “permission to remember everything and not to have any fear of this imaginary world.” Regression ended at 438611.
Once awakened, I continued to interview the patient about his “visions.”
Q: You said these “people” had no powers? You mean they can’t fly and they don’t operate telepathically when they wish?
A. “Yeah, I know… sounds crazy doesn’t it? A world where people can’t create, communicate, and relocate at will…. But honestly, I didn’t see any of this basic life skills at all!”
Q: What of this “death” you called it?
A: “Weird as all diggum. These beings were convinced that they would all end. They didn’t understand as we do here on Realm that life is forever because energy can not be destroyed, only changed in form…
Q: You also talked about people having “colors.” Tell me what you remember seeing?
A: “Yeah…I know – weird, huh? Everyone seemed to have a color and regardless of what it was, they were all exceptionally proud of it. So proud that people were edging toward fighting over their colors. I know…that’s preposterous, isn’t it?”
Q: And this water falling “from the sky?”
A: “Sure, I know that’s crazy, too. Why would water do that?”
End of session – I spoke to Alex’s mate, Elaine Bjornsen, who reported Alex is working well, getting lots of rest, and other than fantastic dream reports from this OtherSpace when he dreams, in all other ways he’s as normal as everyone else.
I reassured the Alex that here in Realm, there is no such thing as water falling from skies. No inhabitants have any color whatsoever because, after all, we are as everyone know, immortal energetic beings. This phantom “Death”? To immortals, it’s absurd. And certainly, we all master flying, telethought, and telelocation as soon as we begin to become conscious.
Patient expressed concern over future possible encounters and more such visions during coming resting states.
I fclosed, giving him a copy of these session notes so that he could hold them as evidence when he was about to take deep rest that were was no such place as this
…as he called it.
This is one of the most complex illusions I have seen in my practice: Waking into a place called “earth” and having water fall from the sky. Fearing “death” and arguing over “colors” – I will prepare an ourline of patient claims for our next collaborative learning conference. Perhaps other have seen this phenomenon?

I recalled vividly that Dr. Marlow handed me his notes as Elaine and I turned to the door/ We were planning to head back to our condo at Lieneuw…
That was the last thing I remembered until….
…gently rolling to Earth-side, waking-up, and noticing the notes resting in my hand while in bed.
I’m now haunted by a singular question: On which side of dreams do we really awaken on?
