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 standing on an open plain. The ground was bare and looked like the ground in old video games (pixelated and blurry). About 20 other people were standing on the plain as well. We didn't have anything to do so we just wandered around and a few of us chatted now and then. Suddenly we heard a loud sound. We immediately started running toward the sound. No one wanted to be the last one to arrive. We knew that no one who arrived last ever came back. I was frightened but was the middle arrival. We all lined up in the order of arrival first in front last in back. Facing the first person in line was the huge robot from Star Wars. It inspected each one of us as we walked forward holding our breath and thankful we weren't the last in line. I was wondering what was happening to the stranger I saw in the back of the line as we moseyed back to our spot. We were bored for what seemed like hours when the loud sound came again. We ran and I came in last. When everyone else had left The robot turned to me. I had a panicky sinking feeling. It pointed its gun at me and I knew it was going to shoot me. I tried to run but I felt the bullet sink into my back and I fell. I woke up unable to breathe. I was 6 years old.
