The text of earliest remembered dream reports from participants in the Demographic Survey 2010 and other sources. Exact question: Please describe the first dream you remember from childhood in as much detail as you can. Response is limited to 3000 characters. I was awakened in my dream (a dream inside a dream) by the sound of many running feet. I went to my bedroom window and looked outside and saw a stream of hundreds of people running past my house all in perfect silence. Dust was rising from the street which in my waking life was paved but in my dream was unpaved. It was night. I climbed up onto the windowsill and sat on it and watched them run by for a while. They made no sign to me or sound. Suddenly a great fear rose up in me and I jumped down from the windowsill and joined them running with them in the same direction away from the Sandia mountains in Albuquerque. There were people of all ages, races, and both sexes running. I particularly remember a boy about my age. He may have looked at me when I joined them but said nothing. I ran with them in silence for a long time before I realized that they weren't ever going to stop and that no one would explain to me what we were running from. Slowly and with difficulty I made myself stop running. I turned to look behind me, assuming that what we were running from had to be behind us. Above the Sandia mountains against the night sky were great hands outlined in light almost like fireworks. The hands were preparing the Eucharist. They poured the wine and placed the host on the Paten. As I watched the people parted around me to continue running. I remember wondering why they would run from something so beautiful and being glad that I had stopped and turned around.

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. I had this nightmare when I was a child. I dreamt I was in the house of a neighbor who had, along with his daughter in real life, sexually molested me. I was in their living room with the Samoyed husky who belonged to my family. He was called Oso. His full name was Oso de Blanco Grande (big white bear). The room was entirely empty, the windows were open and curtains were blowing in a gentle summer breeze. I remember enjoying the look of the trees outside the window and the translucent yellow curtains. The sun was shining on a wooden floor so highly polished that Oso and I could see ourselves in it. It was as reflective as a mirror. Oso and I walked to the middle of the floor. I knelt down, sitting back on my heels, and Oso sat beside me. We stared at our reflections. It was a truly peaceful and loving moment between us. Slowly, however, as we watched, Oso's reflection began to change. It seemed to swirl and splinter gradually, interesting to watch at first. I looked at Oso and saw that the changes were only occurring in his reflection, not him. My reflection didn't change at all. The changes in his reflection became more pronounced, splintering, revolving, and becoming little by little more and more malevolent. I began to be upset and afraid and Oso started to claw and whine at his reflection. I began to beat his reflection with my hands, not hard at first. But as the changes appeared to change from malevolence to outright evil I began to hit Oso's reflection harder and harder and began to shout at it and eventually scream at it. Oso stood up and barked, snapped and clawed at his reflection even more forcefully. For a long time this had no effect. I was beginning to feel exhausted when I noticed that little by little the swirling was slowing and the splintering decreasing. Oso and I kept up our efforts until slowly, very slowly his reflection returned to normal. At last it did, and Oso sat down again. We stared at our reflections for a long while to make sure, I think, that everything was OK again. I remember feeling fearful for him. Then we looked into each others eyes. A peaceful feeling returned, even a victorious feeling, but also a feeling of complete exhaustion and grief.
