This is about the only reoccurring dream that I've ever had. It was years ago, and I've only had it twice, but I remember it well. The strangest thing about this dream, to me, is the span of time between each incident. After I first dreamt it, I would think about it every so often. When I dreamt it for the second time, about a year later, I hadn't thought about it in quite awhile. Not a single detail was different between either dream. The dream is very short, like a story that never got to see past the beginning. Please note that I am not in my dreams, I know this instinctively while I am dreaming. My role is that of an omniscient video camera that allows me to get any angle or any shot, be it internal or not. All of my dreams, many are much more involved than this, are posted in my Journal and are very easy to find.
The dream is dark, like the setting in the movie Sweeney Todd, but everything is in shades of brown instead of black. Essentially, the dream is in a dark sepia color mode. The clothing is Victorian-ish, top hats and all. It starts out with three or four mothers ushering about 7 children, of all ages to a pipe. The room is dingy, and the dark brown paint is chipping off the walls, revealing a yellow-ish color. it's obvious that they are in the slums. The pipe has an inner diameter of about 3 inches. It is slimy with some questionable substance growing on it.
Once all of the kids were assembled, the mothers sent each child, one-by-one (except for one that was holding an infant) down the drain. The people were normal sized, by the way, When the last child disappeared down the drain, the view changed.
There was a blank (disregarding the chipping paint) wall that you could see the shadows of the women on, but the women themselves weren't in the image. All of a sudden, the shadows of men appear on the wall, and the women were shot with automatic guns. All of this "plays out" through the shadows.
Then, the scene changes and things are fast forward to when the eldest of the children were adults. About 4 of the adults were crossing a bridge and looked around. They seemed anxious about something. The view that they were in is a worms eye view. Above their heads were flying coaches. After they cross the bridge, they entered a shack. Immediately, they're in a large rectangular living room. There's a door in front of them, and along both of the walls is junk that connected in a "U" shape with a ratty yellow couch that didn't fit the rest of the style of the world. The couch is before the wall on the far side of the room, acting as a fence. Behind the "fence" is a large (or it looked that way because of the low ceiling) Palomino horse.
After seeing the horse, I woke up. The dream never progressed past that point. Anyway, that's it for this post. I hope that made sense. Any and all opinions, regardless of whether you could analyze it or not, are welcome.
