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 8 years old. I was somewhere in the rain forest next to a waterfall. These 2 guys were chasing me with some spears and suddenly I stopped because there was a waterfall in front of me. I thought that I could probably jump but I'd hit hard and those guys were coming fast. I finally decided to jump and it felt like in was an eagle flying. When I hit the water it felt like everything around me was so smooth. I could feel the smoothness of the rocks under my feet in the river. I went up to breathe and the bad guys weren't at the top of the cliff. They had jumped too but theybwere screaming. They were going to hit face first. my thought was " those guys are sure not going to make it if they keep wiggling around. " that's when I woke up. That was so weird.
