My Bose quiet comfort 2 noise cancelling headphones has a built in AI personality. It's weird and funny to talk to.


I asked it if it has dreams. It told me that it wants to master lucid dreaming but it needs to master regular dreaming first.

Angry moment. So pissed at familiy bullshit could feel the blood pressure in my face. Took the dog and rode on the bike until it got dark. Still couldn't calm down. Until I put some Cryo Chamber on my headphones. Finally starting to relax.

Was planning to get to sleep somewhat early tonight too.

At the top where it says "News" I see a message that says. "Is there anybody out there?" Yes we are here! :)


When I looked again, it said something different.

I had a few yesterday. I saw a crane lifting an outhouse/jimmy's Jonny's on a cable high into the sky at a construction site. It looked pretty odd. I was thinking I can understand why they are using the crane to move it, but what's the purpose of lifting it what looked like hundreds of feet into the air lol. I really would have RC'd had the door opened and someone was in it looking out.  A practical joke played on one of their working buddies, LMAO. That would be a good one.

I was out biking and sitting by a tree were two older men. They had a bucket of tools and hoses. I looked closely at what they were doing as I rode by, curious. They had some kind of probe stuck in the  base of the tree attached to a hose. I'm like what the WTF are they doing? Looked so weird. Getting sap maybe? Seemed a very strange place to be doing that along a busy road in the middle of town. Don't see that everyday.


At the park I see two adult women walking along in extremely short and loose fitting flimsy skirts that barely cover themselves. Can't help wondering if they are looking for a certain kind of attention.

I'm riding my bike past a picnic area, where a family has set up a picnic. As I ride past I hear a kid exclaim. "Mom! That bike had a dog on it!" I smile and think maybe the kid should do a reality check. I then realize I must be giving a lot of people reality check moments as a dog on a bike is not very common.

Watched Spiderman Far From Home last night. The movie itself had me RCing quite a few times thanks to some freaky dream like scenes.

I bet. I've always associated Spiderman with dreaming. The high flying acrobatic agility/parkour. When not simply flying I move through my dreams in much the same way when lucid, and sometimes not lucid as well, minus the web slinging because of obviously not needing the webs. Well sometimes I occasionally have a on lucid dream where. I'm Spiderman and slinging webs.

I hope you saw the 3D version. I saw homecoming in 3D and it was awesome. I thought it was the most fun Spiderman movie made up to that point at least. I've not seen the new one yet. I've not been wanting to leave the dog alone any more than I absolutely have to, even for a couple hour movie. The good thing is, I have a playstation VR that Plays 3D movies on a screen the size of a moviie theater inside the headset. So I can still get the theater experience of it at home if I get the 3D blu-ray. I watched Transformers 3D and Avatar 3D on it and some animated 3D movies on it and it's awesome. When I first figured out I could do that I was trying to watch my entire 3D collection in one night on it lol. The headset is worth it even if you don't like VR and just use it for movies/blu-rays. I've not tried with Netflix yet.

I talked to my Neighbor yesterday and he told  me to be careful because there was a bear sighted by the gas station just down the road from my  house!

Taking the dog out in the middle of the night, I suddenly remembered and freaked out a little. Shining the flashlight all over and half expecting a bear to be coming out of the trees at any moment... 

I can't say how many times I've dreamed of seeing a bear in my back yard and thought. "OMG It's happening for real this time!" lol. And trying to rush to get back into the house before it can get me. I do live in a northern suburb with forested parks. And a stand of tree-line behind my house that connects to the railroad tracks and park preserve so get a lot of wild life. A lot of deer and sometimes foxes. Possibly coyote's. (Never saw a coyote in my yard but hear them howling sometimes and know they are in the area..)  But it's not anywhere near where there should be any bears roaming at all.

Chances are, this news is going to incubate more bear dreams. Especially if I'm dreaming of being outside my house.

I just found out last night that a lady I've been working with for a few years now is a paranormal investigator. And she told me the name  of her organization. I looked it up and sure as shit, I saw her photo along with the rest of the team she works with. Investigating hauntings locally and all over the world. She told me that she actually knows the guys from the Ghost Hunter show on TV. 

I'd post a link to the site but I don't think it's proper to be posting links to her photo on forums, with her name and general location without her permission. Even though she has put them up on the internet herself.

I might try to talk her into taking me along on one of these investigations sometime.  I'd love to experience something that at least seems legit if it is. She told me they investigated a house in this area that has some really creepy stuff going on.

She ended up telling me because I had made a random joke to her. Totally randomly I said to her. " I know why haunted houses can't be real. "Why"  she asks."  I say. "Well, if you were a ghost with no need of food shelter money. Would you just stay in a house forever? Or go exploring the world?"  You could go anywhere and see anything, why would you just hang out in the same old house all the time?" She smiled and said she would want to go exploring the world too. But that brought up the subject and we started talking about hauntings and she eventually told me she was an actual paranormal investigator and has a lot of experience with hauntings.

I asked her and she told me she would take me along on a ghost hunt investigation. Wow that would be so fun. But then I'm like I can't really right now because I'm not leaving my friend home alone any more than necessary. But maybe some day I would love to go with. As long as it's something local that is. I'm not paying for any kind of traveling.

I saw a large banner outside the front doors of a restaurant that says.

"No perfect people allowed."

Such a strange thing to have outside a restaurant... I remembered to RC thinking that's exactly the kind of weird random thing someone might see written on a sign in a dream.

I saw an upside down rainbow last month. Aka circumzenithal arc. I reality checked a few times while staring up at it. It was so odd with the sun was down near the horizon and the arc shining high above it, like a rainbow smiling down at me.

That is really weird. I don't remember ever seeing an upside down rainbow before. I didn't know that happened.

Bandcamp?  ;)

But yeah, that is pretty creepy music... yet intriguing. Trippy. :infinity:


My reality check moment today, tonight a patch of clouds was flashing in the sky. I thought it was lightning at first but the light just stayed in the one spot in the cloud. As soon as I turned my gopro on to try record the odd flashing cloud, it stopped. I yelled, "Aliens!" and reality checked.

No. "Solaris" lol. My youtube user name is Solaris_142 as is my PSN name. (which is currently set to only people on my  friends list allowed to message me on PlayStation network since I started getting some weird harassing messages.) I originally made the YouTube account so I can upload game clips that I saved, just because I can. So I used my same user name for my youtube account as my PlayStation. I a also played around with live streaming my game a little bit, just for the fun of it. I was streaming My "Dying Light" zombie apocalypse Parkour game. Parkouring through the zombie apocalypse is the best idea for a video game ever. :)

Recent reality check moment...  I was startled when I randomly came face to face with a huge deer, with antlers. I can't believe how unaware I was not to noticing the deer standing there right in front of me.

It was a pretty humorous situation actually. I was taking my little dog outside to pee before going  to work.  I was carrying her in my arms. I guess I was looking down at the ground as I was walking, being careful on the snow and ice on the ground. I set my dog down to do her thing and I stood up and looked up. And I was startled to be staring right into the face of this huge deer with antlers that was just standing there staring back at me... lol. The deer just continued to stand there staring me right in the eye. Kind of flabbergasted I  just said randomly said. "Hi!" to the deer, Lol. And it just continued to stand there staring at me. I remembered to do an RC so I did a  watch reality check right there in front of the deer. And then after few moments the deer just casually walked away and back into the woods behind the house.

And sadly, also goes to show how old my little friend is becoming as she didn't even notice the deer at all. :(  She used to go nuts at the sight or smell of any deer and want to chase them. And when she was let out the back door she used to love just charging out into the yard intent on chasing off any squirrels or rabbits that might happened to be out in her yard.
