Have you ever woken from a dream only to find yourself in another dream? At first you think you are awake, but it slowly dawns on you that you’re still dreaming. And then it happens again, and again, until you might be excused, on finally waking up, to question your reality. Are you awake or still dreaming? How do you know you’re awake (after all, you were fooled in your dream)?
Or have you ever got into bed and felt the covers lift behind you, as if an invisible someone else has slipped in alongside you? Or have you woken in the middle of the night to see ghostly goings-on unfolding before your eyes or ringing in your ears? Are you as awake as you think you are, or are you half dreaming?
In this episode we explore these, and also look at the movie A Nightmare on Elm Street, where the characters experience some of these phenomena, and more. And, while we’re there, we interpret the nightmare in the movie as if it were a real dream.
Are other things that go bump in the night connected with the cheese you ate, the alcohol you binged, or the movie you saw just before sleep? We go there too, this episode, before ending with the intriguing – and uplifting – encouragement to change the world through your dreams, and how to do this.
(Our next show, episode 138, will be released in four weeks, on 3 May 2013.)
