The text of most recent dream reports from participants in the Demographic Survey 2010 and other sources. The exact question for the Demographic Survey 2010: Please describe your most recent dream, either from last night or within the last week, in as much detail as possible. The response is limited to 3000 characters. This is a recurring dream that I had last week again. I'm with three female friends in a forest at night, and for some unknown reason, we decide to go swimming in a river. Rather than swimming on top of the water, we swim beneath for what seems like hours without needing any oxygen. While swimming, I can see boulders, rocks, sand, some vegetation, and a few fish. The experience is exhilarating. The river eventually winds into a tunnel, and we swim on top of the water at this point. Rather than rocks along the edge and above us, there are crystals shaped like boulders. I recall us marveling at the beautiful colors and shimmering light emanating from the crystals. As we continue swimming and talking, the tunnel opens up into a huge cavern made of crystals and the river ends. Some people are walking around in the cavern, but I don't feel threatened. Indeed, I'm in awe and feel peaceful. My three friends are no longer with me, but a woman dressed in a white toga appears holding something in her hand and gesturing with her other hand for me to come to her. I can't recall what her face looks like nor what she says specifically, but it is about life, love, happiness, truth, which she softly explains while pointing to a multicolored diamond-shaped crystal in her one hand. I don't know the significance of this dream, but I'm always in a good mood when I awake in the morning.

The text of worst nightmare reports from participants in the Demographic Survey 2010 and other sources. Exact question: Please describe the worst nightmare you can remember, from any period of your life, in as much detail as you can. Response is limited to 3000 characters. Although this dream began as a nightmare, it had a good ending. I'm walking alone at night in an industrial area that is unfamiliar. Rather than walking on a sidewalk with paved streets and light posts, I'm walking between unlit warehouses on either side of me. Then I'm suddenly inside a large building that's similar to an enclosed parking garage--that is, it's made of cement and has a low ceiling. Rather than cars, there are stacks of boxes and crates scattered around. When I see the shadows of two or more workers moving about, I believe it's dangerous, so I hide behind some boxes. Every once in a while, I can see a worker's face--a grotesque face one sees on Halloween masks, not the face of a human. I am very scared and try to sneak away without being discovered but someone--or something--dressed in dark clothes is following me. No matter which way I go, I can't find an exit nor shake whoever is behind me. Then I run inside a theater--I have no idea how I got there! All I know is the stage and seats are to my right, a wall to my left, stairs in front, and something awful chasing me from behind. So I run up the steps all the way to the top, but when I start to turn right and run between the row of seats, I stop and turn around to look at what's chasing me. Instead of a monster, it's an androgynous-looking human being who isn't frightening at all. The face appears to be similar to mine, is beautiful, and I'm no longer afraid. Though I can't articulate the experience, I sensed some truth about myself and/or life.
