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 have always remembered this dream. I was still in preschool i think possibly kindergarten so maybe around 4 or 5. I was secretly spiderman in my dream and nobody knew not even my friends. We knew this "bad guy" who happened to be a scientist with many technological inventions was up to something really bad. So at night my friends and I snuck out and went to his "layer" which was in a storage unit place. The storage units were creamy whitish cement walls with orange garage doors. My heart was racing and I was nervous and mad that he was so bad. we got to his unit and peeked around the corner to see him standing there and he saw us. I looked up at the night sky and at the stars with fear and hope. I somehow got into my spiderman costume and went inside. He had these half-sphere-like lights on the ground and each had some kind of picture on them. They glowed a soft pinkish yellow color. The mad scientist(my arch enemy)had this mechanical arm and it was a very sharp point on the end no hand. He said which ever one of us can hop on the lights and get to the end first wins the arm. I won but he just laughed and said "Ha Ha Ha! This is my arm you can't have it!" and i replied "But I won!" he said "you think I care! I'm not going to give you my arm!!!" then he de-masked me and took my top half of my costume/disguise off and said i knew who you were! then he stabbed me with his arm 4 times where if you drew lines to connect the holes it would be a large square. I was screaming and crying. Then my sister woke me up to ask me what was wrong because i was actually crying in my sleep.
