This project will be about what I think is the weirdest part of me: My dreams. But not just about my dreams, but a specific part of them. It’s rather complicated for me to explain that, but I’ll try my best.
I’m 36. It’s important to specify this for my explanations. In my life, I’ve practiced what we call “lucid dreaming”. Nothing really complicated, you just have to try to fall asleep while thinking that at some point in your dreams, you’ll realize that you’re inside a dream. If you’re persistent enough, you’ll experience that as well.
Doing that also gives you the experience of how dreams work. It’s very easy to explain that part: Inception. When you are successful to have a lucid dream, you start to see what you are thinking about the dream taking shape right away before you, with almost no delay between what you think and its appearance. It’s very funny.
After so much years playing like that (I started around 12 years old), a very special “result” had built itself inside my dreams. Little by little, throughout all my dreams, I started to pass across some parts of some lucid dreams. Each time, the parts fused together. After 24 years, it’s now a full city with hundreds of square kilometers of landscape around it. I had several hundreds dreams in “that place”, almost like I lived there lolol. The city itself is very logically "built". Every parts fits together: Poor districts, rich, industrial, commercial, river, bridges, fields, water filtration station, woods, train, parks, etc.
The most special “feature” of this city, is that it seems to be evolving when I’m not there, having a dream! Some fields happened to be some new built roads with still no houses when I dreamed again about it. 6 months later, another dream there, some houses are built and some roads are now in asphalt lol!! When I have a dream about some crazy stuff, like alien attacks, zombies, etc, the damages remains there and are slowly repaired. In one of the buildings, I had so much dreams of any kind that at some point I realized that it was condemned by the city peoples lololol
I will add some dreams scenes, the weirdest ones of course: aliens, zombies, mass epidemic, gas hazard, volcanic eruptions, secret army bases, etc, with some teleporting devices to each of them, because the map will be very large.
Ok I've made an update on my blog. I've finished the big building and the construction of the city goes on. I made a trick to make the hollow buildings look less hollow. Also, the dirt block trick to ensure having big trees goes well. I had only 2 small trees. Seems that one kind of small tree can appear with 2 blocks.
I tried to put some images here but They dont display properly, I dont know why. Here's the blog link. I put 11 pictures on the new update:
This is amazing. I've actually managed to have awareness in a dream before. I got super scared in it, so I just started saying, "Wake up" over and over until I did. In another one I got myself killed because I was scared.
More on topic, it's amazing how you've build all that. I built a castle, and that's about it. Can't build good anymore. Good job.
Let me summarize this hehe, you're right, it's a very long text:
Hundreds of places of lucid and not lucid dreams fused together throughout 24 years, and formed a city where I now have more than 50% of my lucid and not lucid dreams. And I decided to recreate it in Minecraft, with some recreated dream scenes to visit.
