View Full Version : Weird dream, freaky even

I was wanting to play some last night but was unable to. I guess that was enough a signal for my brains to make it up lol.

The dream starts out rather innocent. I'm just sitting in my room and waiting to play IL2. The next moment i know longer have my MSFFB, but something that looks like the X45 (I've been wanting to buy one). When I look around I'm in the cockpit of an old prop plane, one you know just doesn't fly. It had holes in it, lots of plating was missing. No windshields, and barely any instruments. In front of me was my monitor (go figure).
The plane starts to shake heavily and somehow I manage to fly it, having no clue whatsoever what's going on. Then there are a lot of blurry parts I don't really remember, but the next part I find myself in a thick mist and know I have someone on my six. You hear the guns and then I get shot. I "felt" getting shot, and then the plane went nose down in a dive. I think my stomach turned on that one. Sometimes in dreams falling gives me a very freaky weird feeling.

But I crashed, see some bushes and tree tops, its dark.

Then I wake up, quite disturbed about the intensity of this dream.

Anyone ever had this kind of dream? The mix of virual and real and eventually no longer know what is what?

no, never had that type of dream. Most of my dreams sorta play themselves out as though it's a movie.

I remember one I was a marine from the Aliens film, and I was leading a platoon hunting down aliens in a big spacship (kinda phamiliar, huh?).

But what is really weird is we turned a corner into a big hanger, and instead of there being like loads of boxes and stuff, there was a clean and bright MacDonalds restaurant, and the aliens were sat down munching on Big Macs!!!!!

Don't remember much of what happened next, cept I know I did some fragging!!! Ketchup went everywhere!!!

Also back when I'd play LAN games all night with a few mates, when you'd fall asleep afterwards you were guaranteed to dream about shooting nazis http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I hardly ever remember my dreams.

However i seem to remember a MissKitten from another squadron. A long, long way back. 214th by any chance?

Apologies for the short hijack, so i'll put down that i sometimes try to visualize maneuvers in my mind. But i'm wide awake when that happens. So sorry but that's about the closest i can get WRT dreaming about FB.

Because the MissKitten i knew from way back when used to be in the same squad as myself when i was still having fun playing F22ADF online. Ah the memories http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif But i had another nick back then.

But that Misskitten was from Holland and you're prolly from Ireland right?

Y`know I`ve flown flight sims/played various computer games for nigh on 15 years and I`ve NEVER dreamt about one of them.

I`ve dreamt about many things, I`ve dreamt about my pet snake (quite disturbing it was actually), I`ve dreamt even about my fantasy worlds I`ve drawn, but never about games!

I did have two amazing dreams once where I was actually aware I was dreaming and was able to walk around and look about. I`ve tried to have such dreams since, but have never managed it.

It is called lucid dreaming. I rarely am able to decide what environment I find my self in the dream but often I realize that I am in fact dreaming and then actually make conscious decisions of what to do. This works really well when there are hot girls in your dream.

Lucid dreaming, eh? I must check up more on this phenomenon!

yup lucid dreaming is cool. you can try and induce it yourself by trying to sleep and imagine you're on a rollercoaster ride. at the point you're about to go in a dive you tell yourself to take over.

It can also work with doorposts. sometimes i walk through a door, notice the post and realize I dream. Then I can somewhat excercise some control over it.

I also have very realistic dreams about flying. Infrequently I also dream about the plane crashing but never because I have been shot down. Usually because I no longer have control of the aircraft. I have only dreamed about shooting down another aircraft once. That was a Japanese "Betty" bomber. It was soon after I read about Butch O'Hare shooting down three planes in a matter of a few moments. I remember one of the gunners trying to get a shot at me and of all things, waving his fist at me (and probably cursing).

I have also had these "lucid dreams" when I was younger. It was always very cool to have control over my dreams.

Sometimes when I had a nightmare and being chased by a monster I would suddendly realize this was a dream, turn around and give the monster a real a$$ wiping. lol After the bad guy was taken care about I often would try to fly or do thingies with girls http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Strange (or maybe obvious) thing with flying in a dream was, that i never could get higher than 2 meters when I was in some familiar place. Propably 'cause I had never seen the place from up high in RL.

Sadly a few years ago I lost my ability to see these dreams. Maybe too much stress and too short nights http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

I used to have recurring MechWarrior dreams. Repeated about 3 times I guess, once a year. Some details were different each time, but generally I'd dream I was walking around a city in a huge mech (interpret that Dr. Freud! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif). I don't remember it well now, but for some reason there were destroyed buildings here and there, but the rest of the city was perfectly fine. My friends were in there sometimes, and always another mech showed up, evil for some reason, shooting started, but I'd always wake up before it came ot any kind of resolution http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Y`know what, Aztek_Eagle, I found your dream quite entertaining!

I did have a slightly unusual dream once that I was a German soldier in the ruins of Berlin. I was huddled up with other war-weary Germans in a bomb-out building and we were petrified of the oncoming allies. We were all really fatalistic, expecting the end. All the time we could hear explosions coming closer and shooting. We gripped our weapons in readiness...


Yet, we were going to fight to the death- and were proud to.

It was so realistic, I could even smell the smoky air!
Then i woke up.

The weird thing is I never fly LW, I never fight as Wehrmacht in any game except to even sides. I would NEVER knowingly fight for the Reich, yet there I was! The only dream of it`s kind I`ve ever had.

And here's the link to the old squadron site:

We used to play F22ADF/TAW online but the old members all branched out to different sims i guess. I lost track of most of them (Cavalier, Mongoose, Hengist, Weasel, Laser, Gel, Foot).
Last time i saw Cavalier and Mongoose they were playing Aces High. Cav prolly still plays it, but even that was years back.
Weasel and Laser started a now renowned Falcon4 squadron (16th something). Only Foot and Gel may still be members.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Anyway if you're not the same Misskitten, you're prolly wondering WTH i'm going on about.

Oh I still have those dreams. I remember there was one time a month or so back, I dreamed I was flying in, I think it was a P-40, with my usual plane's name on the side of it: Jillexissanah. My plane is named for three senior girls who graduated this year who pretty much saved my life.
But anyway, I'm flying the plane, and I'm following my flight leader. I remember it being kind of blurry on the sides, no real peripheral vision. I dream in color, and I definitely believe that on the panel of the P-40 I had a photo of the girls and me. Anyway, I had been looking around the cockpit, I think, and when I looked up, I saw a huge flash and explosion as my flight leader and the rest of my wing were destroyed by enemy fighters.
I remember looking up and to my left, into the sun, and german planes flashed down among me. I looked out and saw the horrible disfigurement of my wings. I had holes all over the place. I had two of these German fighters on me, so I dove for the deck. I remember making sure my RPM's didn't go too high, and I tried to put in some flaps to make sure my wings didn't rip off.
The last thing I remember about the dream was that I belly landed, and the Germans decided not to strafe me. I took out the picture of the girls and me, and started walking. The nose art, just a wavy gold pattern of letters spelling out Jillexissanah, faded away. I then fell in a ditch, and my stomach gave a huge lurch. I woke up in my room, surrounded by my blankets, and I had fallen off my bed.

The only reason I remember this dream so well is because I'd written it down. Try to do that. You can reflect on what they might have been telling you, or showing you. It helps me a lot.

Many years ago, when I was only 18, I had a very vivid dream about an FA-18 crashing. I was watching it as a spectator from the ground as it lost control in the landing pattern and exploded in a firey ball. I could actually feel the heat. I woke up from this dream in fact.

I would not think much of it except... that I have been flying this very airplane for the last four years. This dream occured many years before I would ever touch the stick of a hornet. Haven't dreamed of crashing airplanes before or since. I'm not an overly superstitous fellow, but that dream strikes a little too close to home.

I have had strange cases of remembering things in my head, memories of places and exact times of where I'd been. And don't know where I got it from or why it popped in my head. Then a couple weeks later, I found myself actually in place I remembered. Ex: I was about to fall asleep when I remembered being in a van riding past the 8th Air Force Museum in Barksdale AFB. The van was white and I remember the interior. I don't remember the people in there, but I know they are there. A couple weeks later, I AM riding past the 8th Air Force Museum in Barksdale AFB, in a white van with the interior exactly how I remembered it. The people's faces I can see now. And I remember the memory all over again. I have had memories where I though I was at a place and when I try to remember how I got there, I can't. Some of these memories actually come true, and I do end up there, but years after the memory occured. It gets really weird. It's like I dream of places and times I was at when I haven't been there yet. Then I show up. These things happen more then once with different memories. Can anyone explain?

The only time I'm able to control dreams or even realize they are dreams seems to have very little benefit. I always end up in some un-interesting situation and whenever i try to do anything dream-ish it either doesn't work or I start to wake up. I never get any of these interesting situational dreams.

The ones that bug me are when you dream about walking or something and trip, but your body shakes as it prepares to catch itself. You wake and feel dumb, especially if anyone sees it.

CAP401, I've had the same sort of dreams myself. I would not say that thats Deja Vous as that happens in a split second. I had a dream once that I fell into the canal in Leicester and drowned. Two odd things about it was a strange bridge that looked like a draw bridge that a small train could cross was nearby. Also strange was that my clothes were Victorian.

Many years later I was walking to the Abbey pump house along the canal (Which is a museum) and saw the very same bridge that was in my dream. On a plaque near the bridge was the history of the bridge and I found out the it was moved from near to the point on the canal which I dreamt about drowning years ago. I keep meaning to look in the old newspapers from about 100 years ago to see if anything is mentioned about someone drowning in the area of my dream. How about that for a spooky dream?

One thing that I can do is Lucid dreaming. I have always been able to change my dreams. Must be because I'm a bit nuts http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif

Normally I guess I don't dream, or don't remember it.

Oh sure, i've had a few. Attacking Hurricanes over France or England in a Bf-109E4, battleing Spitfires and the Russian hordes in 109F's...Turned out I fell asleep reading a book about that though!

Chaseing down P-47's in a 109G-2, or trying to strip the escort off of B-17's in a 109G-10 or K-4...Ahh, but thats what happens when I fall asleep watching "Memphis Belle" or something!

The most anoying one...Is that dream about struggling to stay alive over Berlin in a 190 Dora or 152H...oh...no, wait...Thats a nightmare about YaK-3P's!

CAP401 I get the same exact thing. It is like when it happens you have been there before... I wouldn't say it is like Deja Vous because that is the same thing happening twice right after it happens (I think). But anyway yea its like you have seen it and been there before the same exact way. Very strange but interesting.

I came close to having a lucid dream about flying a Spitfire a month or so ago. I was dropping off and as I did I found myself in the cockpit, with the canopy open, parked on the edge of a grass airfield. I instinctively knew that it was the summer of 1940, and there were other 'planes (all Spitfires) taking off around me, and a member of the ground crew climbing down off my wing. I looked at him and he looked back at me inquisitively and said "Well, what are you waiting for?" In the dream I thought to myself, "This is it. I'm going to fly a real Spitfire." I was semi-aware it was a dream Spitfire, but it didn't matter, because it all seemed so real. The damp morning air, the sound of the engines, the smell of the fuel, the feeling of the harness, everything was tangible. I was nervous and scared; half hoping to see action, half not. I got so excited that I f**king woke up! I was gutted, I tried to get back into that semi-concious state and tried to get my dream back, but it was no use.

Desert Kingsnake. And a damn fine snake she is too!

Problem I have with dreams and getting them working is when people say, "flick a light switch!" or whatver - How do you know to do that if you think the dream is real?

I mean when I dream I always believe it`s real until I wake up, no matter how dumb it is. So I don`t even think, "I`m dreaming". except for those unusual 2 nights when I actually did.

I`ll never forget them, it was amazing, walking around in a completely made up world in your mind, yet it all looked and felt as real as real life - yet you know your REAL BODY is still in bed!

Desert Kingsnakes are pretty damn fine. I've got a Royal Python, she's a beauty too.

I think that knowing your body is still in bed is a big part of the idea with lucid dreaming. Like in my Battle of Britain Spit dream. I was aware it was a dream, but it didn't matter because of the level of reality I perceived. I used to go out with a hippie lass who was really into it. Apparently you can train yourself to dream lucidly. She said that you start by thinking to yourself before you go to sleep "If I have a dream I'm going to wake up" that's the first step towards gaining control. She said that if you did that regularly, after a while you can control the degree to which you wake up within the dream. I only got as far as waking up when I started to dream, but found my dreams were much more vivid during this time.

I don't think I'd want to be having dreams about your fantasy art though http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

I`m not sure. It`s supposed to be a way to snap you from dreaming to being aware/ in control of your dream I think... ask dreyer, he suggested it! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

I know this might be OT, but it seems other people have had dreams like mine. Only mine aren't dreams. I'm conscious when these things happen. But others are having it. Do you guys think were maybe getting stuff from the future. Not real big things, but stuff that is important. Like whether your going to go somewhere u want to go or not. I know I might get laughed at, but I starting to believe these memories are telling me something about the future. But what?

I know this might be OT, but I've been reading up on craz, I mean, Stalin's purge of The Party, and alot of the preserved letters of the Accused (they were all "terrorists" lol) mentioned that they felt as if they were in a dream. Kinda rings the religous aspect of the Purges, where Stalin asked everybody if they were losing Faith.

Now, back OT here, how to make p1ngu remember his/her dreams?

On that note, I also have prophetic dreams you could call them. It doens't happen as often now, but when I was 12-15 it happened strangely often. Essentially what happens is I have a dream and then some while later I experience the dream exactly to the finest detail. The most vivid example was I think when I was 13, I dreamt that I was standing beside an appartment building, there was heavy fog, almost like milk, I was talking to 2 guys, a young girl and a much older girl. The coversation seemed strange, we were talking about what we wanted to do and then the young girl said something about books that didn't quite fit into the conversation. When I woke up I had no idea who these people were. I remembered the dream for some reason, I guess maybe the strange conversation or the fog or something.

A year and some-odd later I had moved to a different part of the city. Me and some friends were in the back of our appartment building playing baseball. It was kind of a mucky day, and it got really foggy. Fog so thick you couldn't see the far side of the small field we were playing on. So we went towards the back door to the building thinking of what we were going to do. Everything happened just like in the dream. Same exact conversation down to the word, with same exact people standing in same exact positions in the exact same environment.

That's probably the most vivid example, but there were many others. Lately, I've be able to remember the entire dream as it's being acted out. In other words if I remember that I had a dream about what is currently happening, I'm able to remember the entire dream and know what people will say before they say it.

I have no idea how to explain it, and I pretty much keep it to myself for obvious reasons (cooo coooo).

I've only had one dream about flying that I can remember. I was in a Great War biplane - I believe it was a Nieuport, which is odd because I don't even like them. But I was very happy to be flying an open cockpit Great War fighter, and I was looking down over the lower wing at green and yellow fields of I don't know what. It was great.

Then I was attacked by two or three F-16s for some reason. I don't know why. Anyway, they had remarkably atrocious aim, being unable to hit me with cannon. And they didn't use missiles. But I certainly wasn't any danger to them, and I was only still in the air because of their lack of skill, not because of my own skill. In fact, I think that throughout the whole dream (which was short), I was flying straight and level. They just kept flashing by me, always from six oh clock to eleven oh clock high. The weirdest part was that, although there was danger, the dream gave me the feeling that I shouldn't be afraid, so I wasn't.

That's all there was. I woke up from an odd but not really unpleasant dream about flight in a Great War biplane to a sinus headache and having to go to work in a sawdust-infested factory.

I've had plenty of weird dreams over the years but I'll only bore you two of them. The strangest is where I'm dreaming in a dream. It's just weird 'cause I knew I was dreaming, get into bed in the dream, and like watch myself in the dream I'm having in my dream. Almost like an out of body thing. It's really hard to explain now that I'm reading what I've written. The other one was years ago when the TV show 12 0'Clock High was on. I was Paul Burke's co-pilot on a mission through the fighters and flak to bomb the target, getting hit time and again by the flak, hitting the railyards, getting hit by flak again losing two engines. The fighters coming in again, the chaos of bailing out and being captured on the ground....wwell anyway I wrote this dream down and used it for an 8th grade paper. Got a B+.

I work in a highschool, teaching maths.
I once dreamed the school had received some equipment and it was really big so it had to stay in the play yard, covered with a big cloth, waiting for someone who knew how to handle it. Nobody seemed to know, but I suspected what it was. Then the roar of prop planes could be heard in the distance, and I cried the pupils to get shelter. I knew what I had to do. I uncovered the flak guns, sat on them and started firing. The silhouettes of the enemy planes moved slow enough in the distance to make aiming easy. Not a single bomb fell in my school.


Yes I tried to switch lights on or off in my dreams, but the switches were always unfunctional. I don't imagine what Dreyer is thinking of.

S!

I don't have problems with remembering dreams. I worked hard for some time to be able to control my dreams. Well, dreams are very influented on what you are doing in daytime. But for example, in childhood I have repetitional dreams about WW2.
Anyway, most calm dreams for me are when I am flying in space - I mean flying without any plane - my body si plane and I do turns, barrell rolls, Split S http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Most funny thing is absence of weight, so there is no Gs(you know - there is no spoon http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif)
Once I remember dream I flew so fast and high that I climbed to orbit and I flew(actually I drifted) around Earth like Gagarin and I saw India, Himalayas, Pacific. It was so calming down that I close my eyes(in dream) and fall asleep again while flying http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Don't know what it means - why I had such as dream. But it is cool fanstasy and experience.

Agamemnon!

I have had those dreams too. Dejavous or flashbacks or what ever they are called. Once I was having a conversation with a couple of guys when I suddently bursted into laughter 'cause I knew beforehand what one of the mates was going to say, and he said it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif . They looked at me like I was a madman (which I most likely am).

Unfortunately my dejavous are quite short, a few seconds or so, so the situations are mostly over before I realize I had seen it before.

You said you can also tell what people will say next. Have you ever tried to interrupt them and change the course of the conversation? Would that change the course of future? Hmmmm... so spooky http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I had another weird game related dream last night, i was in an office or schoolblock playing a online FPS, except the game was morphed with reality in that you were actually running around shooting each other but no-one was harmed. I was trying to fly apaches (in an office!!) but kept crashing em. In the end i took the opponants HQ and i was sending txts (no chat lol) to the rest of my team for support before the bad guys regrouped. I couldnt key the txt out quick enough so I grabbed a machine gun from an apache and when they opened the door I sprayed em all, literally. The bullets exploded into water when they hit 'em and I realised once i ran out of ammo i was done for :/

I've also had these moments of Deja Vou. Unfortunately, I don't remember the entire dream as it's playing out in real life, but rather sometimes I get (or used to get) that feeling of, "Hey, I've already been here and done this." Everything that happens just seems familiar and expected, although I didn't know it was going to happen before it actually did.

Unfortunately, I haven't been dreaming a lot at all lately. I've only had a few lucid dreams in my life, but these were the weirdest and most fun things I've ever experienced. I wish I could teach myself to do that, but I guess you have to dream before you can dream lucidly.

Agamemnon, one of these times you suddenly remember such a dream, you should try mouthing what your friends are saying as they are saying it. I bet that'll drop a few jaws. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

no, never had that type of dream. Most of my dreams sorta play themselves out as though it's a movie.

I remember one I was a marine from the Aliens film, and I was leading a platoon hunting down aliens in a big spacship (kinda phamiliar, huh?).

But what is really weird is we turned a corner into a big hanger, and instead of there being like loads of boxes and stuff, there was a clean and bright MacDonalds restaurant, and the aliens were sat down munching on Big Macs!!!!!

Don't remember much of what happened next, cept I know I did some fragging!!! Ketchup went everywhere!!!

I don't have many dreams, haven't had one in about a year. Seems like the dreams I do have are..well, seemingly real. Last dream I remember having I was a 101st airborne paratrooper on D-day. Dream started when I was in the C-47 under heavy flak, and the green light had been given to drop. I was the second one out of the plane, and after my chute opened I watched my C-47 continue to drop my mates. In an instant, it was hit in the left engine by flak, moments later it exploded and was a twisted, gnarled mess of shrapnel plummeting to the ground. When I hit the ground I was alone, with no one else in sight, but AA fire everywhere. I ready my Garand and start moving. After creeping along for a hundred yards or so, I see a muzzle flash at the edge of the woods in front of me. Next thing I know I feel bullets ripping through my shoulder, arm, and lower abdominal area..was like someone kicked me to the ground. It wasn't until after I was hit that I heard the gunshots and realized I had been shot by an MG-42. Next thing I remember was screaming for a medic before waking up.

Not a pleasant experience

The wierdest dream I had was flying an AH-64D helicopter on a SEAD (Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses) mission in Iraq. My CP/G and I are flying NOE, probably 25-50 feet from the ground, En' Route to our objective. Over the comms I can hear other flights going about their business, one was on strike, one insertion, and one recon. After 15 minutes or so we are well into enemy territory, sneaking around. I hear one of the other flights, Quebec 41, a black hawk making an insertion, crackle over the radio saying "Uhhh...I see something in the distance, 2 o'clock, can't tell what it is, Echo 84 do you have anthing on radar?". "Quebec 41, this is Echo 84, I have no contacts on radar at this time". "Strange, it looks like a fast-mover with his landing lights on". At this point my CP/G made a bit of a wisecrack "Mark my words, next thing he says will be 'I see dead people'". After a minute or so of them mulling over the situation I hear a frenzied comm. "THIS IS ECHO 84, WE ARE BEING ENGAGED BY HOSTILE AIRCRAFT, QUEBEC 41 AND 42 ARE GONE!". "DAMNIT 85, FIRE YOUR STINGERS!". "WE'VE GOT MULTIPLE SYSTEM FAILURES 84, I CAN'T KEEP HER AIRBORNE! TRYING TO SET HER DOWN!". "THIS IS ECHO 84 MADAY! MADAY!, CONTROLS NOT RESPONDING, WE'RE GOING IN HARD!". After that there was complete silence on the all comm channels. We abandoned our mission and vectored to the last known location of the blackhawk flight and her escorts. We arrived at the position, there were no radar contacts, no fires, and still no comms over the radio. Edging forward a bit more and peeking over a dune I see four bright lights in a vertical diamond formation. In an instant they shoot straight up and out of sight.

Can't stress how real the radio comms sounded.. remembering it is still chilling.

The lesson learned? Never watch the X-Files, and play Longbow 2 in the same night...

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." - John Stuart Mill
