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. When I was 4 years old I had a dream that I was in my hometown and I couldn't find my mother. I panicked and searched frantically. After I had searched the back rooms I found her in her own bedroom and remembered she was sick. She was tied to the bed and gagged with two criminals of some sort slightly resembling the thieves from the film "Home Alone" circling her and holding her at gunpoint. When they realized I was standing there petrified they grabbed me and shoved me in the bathroom proceeding to lock the door behind me. Inside the bathroom however I was suspended in space surrounded by nothing but a blinding light when a pair of large serious eyes which strongly resembled the ones from the film "Atlantis" started opening towards me. They were brighter than the surrounding light and seemed to gaze into me and struck fear into my soul. They also had no pupils. At this point in my repetitive dream I always woke up. I stopped having this dream around the age of 6.
