My crew had used them several times in the past, on construction projects to keep tidal waters in check. Installed properly on good site conditions, they really do work well.

Imagine the new dreams, "Flooding" the imaginations of those people who experienced that horror.
In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

People talk about randomness in dreams. But what about repeating dreams ?

and i swear we dream the same things with people we dont even know.

Sometimes I think that too. I knew a girl once who used to get the same repeating dream as me. I don't think she was making it up, we were good friends.

I get a lot of lucid dreams these days for some reason. Age related maybe.

Yes, me too!

Yet I talk with some people and kids who say they either don't dream at all or don't remember dreaming if they do.

Go figure.

There are some nights where I actually look forward to sleeping to enjoy dreaming.

I have had what I call, "Continuation Dreams", which is as it sounds, picking up where I left off the previous night. Perhaps I awoke before the dream had finished. Almost like playing a movie and one movie reel had finished. Now I need the second, final reel to play.

Don't know and it doesn't happen often at all, but it has happened a few times.

My favorite dream (since childhood) is that of being able to Fly...not in a plane, but me gently but forcefully pushing my arms down as if pushing the air past me, climbing higher until I look down and see familiar sights below me. Not like Superman but much slower, more expressive and deliberate. Yeah...definitely beats being chased by bad guys and your legs don't or won't run fast!!

I think you have to spot the hole in the plot and realize its a telepathic experience,  dreaming.   i wont be shaken.

I very rarely dream… or remember them.  The one recurring dream I had as a child was a variation on the flying dream.  I would be walking only on my hands, but I could push off and jump huge distances; like I was in low gravity… I still remember the feeling and force required to walk or make a jump.  I miss those dreams.

I think dreams in general are produced by our free running imagination/ consciousness/ global thought pattern locking onto facets of patterns closest to the current ‘dreams’ narrative.  It’s a self feeding feedback loop in the absence of sensory stimulus.  This is why dreams can take such strange turns; include similar concepts in twisted scenarios etc.  The facets of the current moment in the dream are similar to another memory or experience so the pattern merges to create a new moment… repeat.  Mix this effect with the continuational effects of episodic memory recall and you have dreams.

It’s not surprising humans have similar recurring dreams. We all live in the same reality/ society and all experience similar fears and experiences as we move though life.  Our experiences are very limited by our narrow development and life styles.  We all love to feel free and we mostly all hate the dentist etc.

It thunk... therefore it is!
