This dream was in three parts, with the end tying back to the beginning. Perhaps more importantly, it alluded to my earlier dream Alpha, part 2.
It began with me at work. I worked in the old building with Mindy (the lawyer who currently goes to church with me at the Chapel. The company had been taken over by a new company that was a bad pharmaceutical company that was going to do testing on people. They were taking over the building, and had already started construction. They were installing these very nice showers in every room – each one had multiple shelves and jets of water (I want to say five each) on the sides. Mike M (a current colleague of mine) had been using those showers in the office, but he had to stop because customers were going to begin using them once they had tested products.
Suddenly, the scene changed, and I had gone to a floating house in the water. I was with a man (that I don’t know in real life.) At the far corner of the house, there was an open window I’d left open earlier, and I was going to close it. It was on the very edge of an open-air “dock” type of porch, and I was afraid of heights, so I didn’t want to close it. The man I was with went to close it. Then we had to dive into the water to swim back to shore. We took off our clothes to swim, but this wasn’t that big a deal. I had my black dress shoes and my phone in my hand when I jumped in. It was hard to swim while carrying these items, and it felt like I dropped something. I panicked, but I still had the shoes and phone, so I wondered what I had dropped, but I couldn’t figure it out. We got out of the water and were walking along another dock , and looked down. Earlier, we had noticed some shadows under the water but didn’t look closely. This time, as we were walking past, we saw shoes under the water and realized that the shapes were dead bodies. Someone had killed five people and tied them underwater. It was a horrifying feeling. Suddenly, I was the man, and was trying to walk quickly, hoping the woman would catch on and follow. I (He) didn’t want the killer to see us, or to know that we saw the bodies. We didn’t want others to think we did it. I was so horrified I woke up.
When I went back to sleep, the dream continued, but I was back on the job search. Apparently, I was still planning to work at the bad pharmaceutical company, but I had to re-interview, and it required filling out an extensive psychology questionnaire/test. Several pages were filled with questions about vocabulary, and my mom was there filling it out, and that is what she was worried about. I told her not to worry – she had a wonderful vocabulary. In fact, those questions didn’t seem so hard to me. I had jumped ahead to the word problems that were more mathematical in nature. I had spent 4 hours just answering the first three questions, and I was stuck on a problem about clocks. I sat down in a swing and was trying to figure it out. The problem showed two clocks, and each clock had 4 hands on it. The question simply asked “What is the time difference?” I was trying to find a pattern. I looked up, and the clocks were real – they were on the wall on the other side of a window in what looked like a small storefront where Michael was. First, I thought that perhaps each clock showed both the time in OUR universe and the time in the OTHER universe. I was going to look for the set of hands that was larger on each clock, and calculate the difference in those; then look for the set of hands that were smaller on each clock, and calculate the difference in those – then add the two numbers together. As hard as I looked, I couldn’t tell if there was a difference in size in the hands though. Then I thought I’d compare like colors. For example, if a clock had 2 blue hands, I would compare that time with the two blue hands on the other clock. But one clock had two blue hands and I THINK the other set was red; however, on the second clock, there was a set of blue hands, then one green hand, and one yellow hand. I asked Michael what he thought, and he said, “Oh, I haven’t even looked at the clock” and kept doing whatever it was he was doing. As I was thinking about this, I was swinging higher and higher – faster and faster. The sensation was similar to the flying sensation I had in Alpha, part 2 and also in The Road, and That Which Blocks It. And I KNEW that the clocks were somehow linked to the other universe. As I swung higher and higher, I got very cold, and I said that I would need a coat and hat if I was going to continue to swing! At some point in this dream (maybe a prior problem?) there were three snow globes, and I woke up thinking that those were vitally important in figuring out the clock problem!

Mike M. was taking showers in the office – has to stop b/c customers will use to test products.
Went to floating house in the water. Had left windows open and was going to close. One was on the very edge. Scared of heights. Was not going to close then the man I was with was going to. Took off clothes to swim. I held black dress shoes and phone and jumped in. Hard to swim. Dropped something and not sure what. By dock had seen shadows (5) under the water on the way back saw pair of shoes and realized someone had killed them and tied them underwater. Horrifying feeling. Suddenly, I was the man and was trying to walk quickly hoping the woman would catch on and follow. Didn’t want the killer to see or know we saw. Didn’t want others to think we did it. So horrified I woke up.
The dream continued when I went back to sleep…
I was going to have to re-interview for the job – same place that is now the product testing place. There were pages and pages of psychology testing to prep for the job interview. I had dreamed about 3 snow globes and I thought that was really meaningful. The paperwork was so hard it took me 4 hours for 3 questions, but I was determined to do it and hell bent on finding a job that would appreciate the effort. Mom was also filling it out and was worried about the vocabulary sections, but I told her she would be fine with those. I was on a swing, and there was a problem about 2 clocks. The clocks were real – in an area through a window where Michael was. The question was “What is the time difference?” It was hard to tell which were the big hands and which were little hands – if there were 2 different sizes, I would have done big hand/big hand + little hand/little. If two sets were blue and 2 were red, I’d have done that. But on one clock the other was green and the other was yellow. I asked Michael, and he said he hadn’t even looked at the clock, but when he did he didn’t comment about the extra set of hands. *other universe* I was swinging so high and so fast that it was very cold and I said I needed a coat and hat.
