Text of most memorable dream reports from participants in the Memorable Dreams Survey 2011 and other sources. Exact question used in the Memorable Dreams Survey 2011: We are interested in hearing the story of an especially memorable dream you had, from any time in your life. Please try to recall as many details as possible, including the setting, characters, colors, actions, and any feelings or thoughts you had in the dream. I was 9 and running through a very detailed mansion that defied most laws of physics. As I was running I was being chased by two badly scarred polar bear who were quite focused to a large extent on ending my life. I was running through a hall filled with portraits of what seemed to be a family of very rich families dating back to 700 B.C.E. which was very strange seeing how most family trees date back only to the 1800's. I had run into a courtyard in the mansion that mimicked my own front yard. I felt quite relieved because both polar bears were not in sight. I sat down in the shade of a worn birch tree when all of a sudden the two polar bears appeared at both of my sides. they circled around me for about ten second starring at each other as if debating who gets to gore me first. Teeth barred and scarred faces scrunched up the one on my right took the first swing at my head. I ducked under and attempted to run but the second polar bear was incredibly fast. It pinned me down looking at me with his bright blue eyes as if almost saying sorry. Before he could rip apart my individual arteries I had already happily woken up.
