Bridge Climb / 360-Degree Vision

Bridge Climb Lucid Dream

Bridge Climb

We are in a valley, surrounded by clear sky and sunshine and mountains.

Beside the path is a large, current-less river and a massive red steel bridge. It runs from the bank on our side to over the top of the nearest mountain. I realize the bridge is just too huge and unreal and become lucid.

I start to climb the bridge. But soon the stairway disappears and is replaced by a log with two ropes for handrails either side of it.

Though it is precarious, I think: "I can handle this - I'm dreaming!" I effortlessly work my way along until I'm dancing and galloping up the slope of the log.

I wonder what this must look like to the dream people I left behind on the bank... but instead of adopting their point of view, I now see the world in 360-degree vision.

I can see the log rising up in front of me and sloping down behind me at the same time. To my right and left is open ocean, as if the river has expanded.

The people on the ground start cheering. When I consider the distance now between us, the bridge itself rises up, until I am so high, I am at the mountaintop.

I can see everywhere. It is breathtaking.

As I explore along the peak of the bridge I discover a dead end; an interior wall which wraps itself around me. Now I'm standing in a room at the top of the mountain.

There is a radio playing static which starts to tune itself and through it I can hear the cheers and the banter of the people on the ground, delighted that I made it to the top.

But suddenly, now I'm in this room, I get the sense that I can never go back and must press on...
