    My dead brother materialised in front of my bed which frightened me and I woke up trying to scream. Why would I be frightened - that is the strangest thing.

    Fear of the unknown IMO.

    Fear of death, perhaps? I find myself fearing death a little less these days, though I think this is mainly due to the deteriorating state of human affairs.

    I had a long dream last night that I was peripherally involved in the "Brink Mat" heist. It was being planned from a factory where I worked - quite brazenly. In the end the fuzz simply overheard it and beat everyone up. @nomad was the inspector! (though I think I know the link in my life there .. nothing to do with the poster!).

    This thread is timely. Last night/this morning, I had a hyper-realistic apocalypse dream. From my bedroom window, I could see the big cloud coming, and I knew that this was the end. The cloud seemed to pass without incident, but as soon as I thought we might be safe, the earthquakes started - I could see high-rise buildings falling into themselves, and huge clouds of dust rising as everything was destroyed. I tried to gather supplies ( tights, for some reason) and then I woke up. My arm had gone completely dead (this happens all the time and it's turned into a bit of a problem) and I was whimpering as I tried to get it to feel again. I had a friend who almost lost his arm because of this (he was drunk though and had been unconscious for ages on top of his arm. He has a scar down the length of his arm from the operation) Anyway. I digress. Maybe the dream was my mind's attempt to wake me up.

    One function of dreams is supposed to be preparation for future scenarios. Tights @coffeekid ? Stick with me in the Apocalyse - I have prepared myself by buying a book.

    I had a very similar dream when we ran out of Earl Grey tea-bags and I was faced with having to use PG Tips.

    Last night I dreamt that I desperately needed to sell some jewellery and it was vitally important that I spoke to Andrew Lloyd Webber about it, though I can't remember the details of why.

    I have a recurring dream about being in the tube when someone is killed - usually by being hit by a train. It's something I've had since I was about 14 and first started travelling on the tube by myself. Now, whenever a tube station crops up in my dreams, they become lucid dreams and it becomes a race against time to wake myself up before the inevitable gory death. I rarely manage it.

    The worst ones are the lucid dreams where I dream that I've woken up but I know that I'm actually asleep because I'm paralysed and there are terrifying things in my bedroom and I know I have to make myself move in order to wake up properly. Sometimes, I manage it and wake up and think it's over, but then something weird happens, like I'll get up and my bedroom floor will have disappeared and I'll fall into this chasm, and then I realise that I've only woken up in the dream and I'll become aware that I'm still asleep in my bed and I have to try and wake up all over again. Once, I got stuck in that loop over and over and over again until I couldn't tell the difference between dreaming and being awake anymore. I was a wreck in the morning.

    Brains are weird.
