I think here's what I need to do in order to document my dreams while preserving most of their details:
  • Turn on my Eee PC or MacBook before I sleep.
  • Type the keywords instead of typing whole sentences.
  • Reassemble the dream using the keywords.
I also found out that I usually forget my dream if I wake up after n hours. I don't know the exact value of n yet.

Even if I discover the value of n, I don't think that I can use an alarm to wake myself up. Alarms usually don't have an effect on me. :)
I think this was my dream on Thursday or Friday.

I was inside a bamboo cage with lots of vines. I was chased by a black cat, a black dog, and/or a black animal. I escaped just in time.

I was then teleported to a war zone. There were soldiers stationed on top of a hill. A soldier left the hill. He moved stealthily across the grass fields, hoping that no one would see him. Suddenly, someone asked him to stop.

"Are you an enemy?", he asked.

"No I'm not.", the soldier replied.

Moments later, enemies emerged from the bushes.

"Enemies!", the guy shouted.

The grass field was then bombarded with heavy artillery, followed by an airstrike, obliterating them all.

Documenting my dreams is harder than I thought. Every time I wake up, my first instinct is to go back to sleep.

I think I need to have some sort of stimulus in order to experience truly bizarre dreams.

My dreams were boring. I dreamt that I was in a Starcraft battlefield and I saw Terran siege tanks attacking a Protoss base. The siege tanks had surface to air attack capability, and they were able to capture airplanes by chaining them to the ground. Boring...

I dreamt that I was traveling through space and time. In my dream, three versions of my self declared, "I was, I am, and I will be." I had to wake up because I had to pee, so I forgot most of my dream.

I think I should document my dreams in order to have yet another perspective of my unconscious self. Not that I need more introspection, or that I need to understand my dreams' symbolic meanings (I can interpret most of my dreams, thank you). I think documenting my dreams will provide more insight into the inner forces that influence my thoughts and actions. I also have this theory that my unconscious self constantly analyzes and absorbs external information, and this manifest itself as being able to see the future in my dreams. I don't believe in the supernatural. Blah, blah, blah. I'll blog later. Just dumping my thoughts online. I have to finish my code.
