strangest dream ever.

it was unlike any dream i have ever had before. like most of my dreams it was in two separate, but somehow related parts.

in the first part i was some type of space marine on a jungly planet (type place). i entered the dream in the height of the action, which was a breakneck retreat from some manner of advancing enemy-alien-lizard thing. while i was terribly curious of what exactly i was running from (and shooting at) the wisest course of action seemed to continue to run (and shoot).

the next part was even stranger. my family, at least my aunt and brother, had gone to vietnam for a vacation. nothing out of the ordinary there. except that i was a vietnam vet. i visited places where i had previously fought and kept having grainy, black and white flahsbacks, all quick cut and jerky. they became increasingly protracted until i came to a building where, in the past, my unit had apparently taken heavy fire. in the 'now' of the dream a bunch of teenagers were having a party. well, i freaked out, knocked some kid down as he got out of his car, stole the car, and drove the hell away.

later i met my aunt and brother for a meal, where my aunt accidentaly spilled another diner's milk.


  • Just to reassure you, I too do not believe that there is any relation between your increased exposure to ultra-violent video games and the violent nature of your dream. I mean, just because you have been playing a game that simulates the very firefights and carjacking of which you dreamt does not mean that it 'caused' your strange dream.

  • I would have to agree with paul. The likely culprit is your estrangement from diana; or, perhaps, an overbearing father figure or even perhaps a psychotic brother.

    Ultra-violent video games are as harmless as a thinning ozone layer.
