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 remember a dream that I had when I was about 8 years old. I was surrounded by my family all who were scientists in white lab coats. They were all holding fancy handheld devices so it must have taken place in the future. I decided to go into a building where there was a marble staircase. I slid down a long banister bumping into the marble head at the end of it. It was a library-like room the kind you might find in a wealthy person's home. I saw a statue and I decided to admire it. All of a sudden it comes to life and grabs me from behind. Its hold is rock hard. The statue takes a stick and puts it against my neck. It twirls the stick on my flesh and pokes my neck repeatedly. I scream both in fear and pain and one of my cousins enter the room. The statue lets me go and is suddenly still. I know no one will believe me. I was terrified in the dream and I woke up terrified also. Perhaps this is why I still remember it vividly to this day.
