A story book.
The unusual circus act
Occurring on Jun 21, 2006, the first day of summer for 2006, this dream is where the scenery is extremely well-recalled to such fine detail. I didn't enhance the story using my mind game, however.
The circus area was rather dark with only a small area of the rings lit. In the center were three seesaws, of which were about 12 feet long and 2 feet wide. Just to the right of these smaller seesaws is a single large one that is about 18 feet long and 3 feet wide. At the ends of each seesaw, 3 feet for the smaller one, 4 for the larger one), there is an aluminum diamond-shaped grid pattern etched in, like a bench in some mechanic shop. The seesaws were otherwise of a reddish-gray color. With the seesaws, there was something else on each side of them that I don't recall, one of which was a stand about 4 or so feet tall and otherwise dark in color, but very vaguely recalled. There were no animals. The whole circus area on the main floor (color shown in the map below) covers about 80 feet long and about 21 feet wide.
The audience stands has 12 progressively higher rows of seats starting from 7 feet above the ground (not including the part attached to the floor or any supports underneath) going up to 20 feet high at the very top. The seats were like benches instead of chairs. The signs were centered on the long side along the outer edge near the north wall. The volcano cave was just to the east of this with a tricky access area (without any walls between this and the signs, but where the path is) on the left area of the signs. Further to the left was a pathway on the ground supposedly an exit of some kind. Left of this were more audience stands, otherwise the same as those on the south side. The ceiling was about 40 feet high. The map at the bottom explains all this very well in greater detail.
I was, at first, messing around with the large seesaw seeing how fast I could get - 130 mph at 80 mph per second deceleration. I then went onto the walkway on the south edge (by the map below). The audience then wanted the circus acrobats to jump off all three of the smaller seesaws at the same time in the same way within ten minutes. The acrobats debated whether it was possible or not. I was supposedly a combination of an acrobat and general staff (like maintenence).
After a short while of watching the acrobats practice the audience's requested stunt, I saw an area that had signs in it. I wanted to check it out. Short of using a ladder, gliding to it was the next best way, but would be rather tricky as I needed just the right angle. After jumping, and gliding out a bit, I turned to the left and began making a figure 8. I somehow had the flare effect, even at just 50 mph (which is way too slow for it). I then got about the angle I needed when 90% of the way done with the second turn and headed straight for the area with the signs I saw earlier. I land in the area rather awkwardly.
I see one of the signs in the area as having "Happy Birthday" writeen on it and a second one with a lot of the digit 8 scattered all around it in one of 4 colors: red, yellow, green, and blue. There was supposely some software to install to get the signs to display properly. It mentioned 3 of 4 areas of the circus. The map explains the two recalled ones. The first one shown was the north side, the area where I started my glide from. The second place I don't recall what it was, but the third place was the volcano cave. It stopped here as that was the area I was in. The area was indeed a volcano-shaped structure, of which had reddish lava painted near the top. The internal command area couldn't be seen by the audience due to one-way glass. It was dark on the outside of the circus, but somewhat bright on the inside. Inside this volcano cave was the computer I was installing some software on. I know there were 4 areas as there were 4 such marks listed and the installation program went from left to right cycling through it until it reached the right one. It didn't get to the mark on the far right. Also, there was an installation type listed as one of 4 numbers, -1, 0, 1, and 2. There were instructions on the screen that explained what these meant. I don't recall, but I theorize that -1 means "uninstall", 0 means "repair", 1 means normal install, and 2 means full or custom install. I choose 1 and the the installation starts. The manager soon comes wondering what I was doing and I told the manager I was installing some software for a sign. I was worried the manager would cancel the installation, but she saw I was doing it right and didn't cancel it. The dream ended shortly after.
A represents where the audience seats are. B represents the top balcony, and the exact position I was standing before I started the glide. C represents the location of the volcano cave. D is where the small seesaws are. E is where the large seesaw is. F is where the signs are and G is where the tricky access area is. H marks where the unknown objects are (that I don't recall what they were). The map scale is where 1 foot is 8 pixels. Combined with 3 recalled scenes, the map shown is about 85% accurate.
