Dream with a Dream


Last night (well, probably more like this morning), I had one of my rare, unbidden dreams. I'm sure I get plenty of dreams, but I only very, very rarely remember them unless they're ones I've decided to have before I go to sleep.

I won't bore you with the details of it, but at one point in the dream I went to sleep and had a dream. In the real world, I was aware I was dreaming (I always am) and in the dream world I was aware I was dreaming too, which was a weird experience. Anyway, because of this I was able to prevent any possibility of a recursive dream-within-a-dream descent, so didn't have to worry about what would happen if I got some kind of stack overflow. Still, it was rather odd to dream that I was falling asleep, having a dream, and then waking up, all while still asleep.

Oh well, at least I am now furnished with the rather useless information that when I dream-within-a-dream, I dream-within-a-dream in colour.
