Wow I had a really detailed dream this time but was abruptly woken up so I’m not sure how much I will remember. I was in a giant old house and had found three secret passageways that led to an attic that was in a different world. One of the entrances was accessed via a button on the fireplace remote. One of them was a secret passage in a wall accessed by pushing a button in a knothole in wood paneling, and I knew there was a third but couldn’t find it when I was looking for it.
The dream started when a kid accidentally pushed the button on the remote. I heard walls moving and then came running in. I didn’t want them to find the other entrances.
The next thing I remember I had gone through the entrances and suddenly it wasn’t an attic in my house but it was an attic in my church. Ben, our priest, was holding a meeting and apparently people had been accessing the world regularly and moving there. There was no government and no taxes and because of that there was really no infrastructure. There were starting to be problems and there was no currency to fix them. We were brainstorming in the meeting and first decided to host a ball. Men would wear formal attire and women would wear wedding dresses. As we continued to discuss, someone built up added security at the entrances. I thought about shouting “build a wall” but thought it might not be appreciated in the mixed democrat/republican group. Ben was trying to write the motion on a whiteboard (which is weird, since he never does that in meetings.) The marker was out of ink though so you could barely read it.
So the motion passed to increase security between the worlds and discourage people from coming and going. I asked “What happens to the people who are already in the world? Are you not going to let them come back?” And no one had an answer. Finally they agreed they would just discourage it but not prevent it.
There were three levels to the world- the entry level where the attic was, a second level and a third level. We were going to try to keep people on the third level so it was more separated from “our world.” Also there were new entrances being discovered every day- Ben held up one that was literally just a little button on a piece of paper. We didn’t know about all of them.
After the meeting, I left and went out of the attic. I had assumed that the ball was cancelled but then Michael said he would take me to go get a wedding dress. He was joking that he had never been able to take someone shopping for one of those and see it. I said that there wasn’t going to be a ball and he said he had talked to Ben who said there would be. I laughed and said that it was a terrible way to discourage movement between the worlds- to show everyone the doors and have a great time and then say don’t use them. We decided Ben just really wanted to have the ball.
There were also some sort of snowman people who lived in this world.
