A Tale of Lucid Dreams: The Sun & The Remote Control

A Tale of Lucid Dreams

I am a lucid dreamer. Not remembering my dreams when I woke up, is unusual to me.

From fuzzy objects to flying while being chased by bad spirits, or hearing the sound of my nephews’ voices very clearly as if I was right there with them; I traveled more places in my dreams than I ever did in my waking life.

If I ever attempt writing dark fiction novels, I want to believe I could put the scenes together based on my bizarre lucid thoughts, but sadly I am not into it.

Today, I would like to tell you a dream story about the Sun & the remote control. I wouldn’t mind if you try to interpret these strange events I had seen in my sleep:

“At the height of my sleep the other night, I dreamed of the sun. The sky was white and clear. In my hands I was holding a remote control which has an LCD screen (if you use a digital thermometer, the screen is similar to it) but it has a wider and larger display.

I saw random string of numbers ranging from 565 to 604 or 645, while I was adjusting the temperature using the remote control. Confused, and I kept thinking about in my dream, if the numbers were Celsius or Fahrenheit degrees.

I looked down from the sky, I was a bit worried if other people were comfortable enough or were they not feeling too warm nor too cold. For a brief moment I saw myself, my roaming eyes explored around. Somehow my half-conscious mind was telling me: It’s winter and I have to watch the temperature, carefully.

After a while, I saw a round and deep plastic container, which seemed like there are water vapors inside it. I grabbed a cloth and wiped it dry. Then, inside the container I pulled out an electronic module or a circuit board, like a portable transistor radio (if you open the lid). I examined it closely and I could see the electronic chips, resistors and capacitors which in my head, they looked like buildings, houses and trees. I thought to myself: Hmm….Probably, the remote control is connected into the circuit board. It came to me then, it didn’t make sense that I could control the temperature of the sun using a handheld device from quite far distance. That’s when I became aware I was only dreaming.

I glimpsed at the sun once more, while its golden glow spread across the sky, I felt whatever feeling of fear I have was gone. I realized the weather was pleasant and that everyone was blessed to have such beautiful weather at that time. So, there was nothing to worry about.

However, I can’t get rid off my head the temperature readings because I still wonder what scale to use.”
