Dream (5/18): World Collapse, Dragons(?), and Air-Racism

Posted by

This dream unfolded in three parts:

The first part described a world in chaos: war, energy crisis, people suffering.

The second part told the story of men who worked in a rock quarry who had a secret job: monitoring the huge pteranodon-like creature that lived in a cave near their excavation site. We watched as the thing burrowed its way out of the dusty rock and flew stealthily out from in between the cranes and diggers.

The third part was a rap music video. Musically, it was styled in the post-90s gangsta, with heavy, ponderous drums, while the video was a slice-of-life, taking place on a crowded plane. It featured two angry male voices: an Arab man on the flight, and me, playing the role of an sky marshal. We trade verses, until finally I tackle him in the cabin.

There is an prevailing sense that the Arab character did nothing wrong, and that this is a major point in the song, which seemed to largely be about fear and anger.

We have a full flight today
