Reverse dream II

Last month, I had another example of a weird memory that doesn't belong in this world. Perhaps it can all be blamed on the fever. I had the flu for several days and was feverish and tired. I was moving from a lit room into the dark bathroom when it occured. As I shut the bathroom door behind me, I didn't bother to turn on the bathroom lights. Because I 'knew' that the house technology would automatically turn on the lights in any room that I entered. Except it didn't work and I was left standing in the dark. At first, I was surprised to see the system had not worked properly. Such failures are rare and I wasn't sure what to do about it. Then I realized, "Oh yeah, it doesn't work like that here, you have to turn on the lights yourself. Silly me!" Where did I get that weird memory from? It's not something I have ever experienced in this world.

  1. I think it's just that we live in many realities and sometimes for just a moment, especially if we're tired or distracted, we let alone become dominant.

    When my daughter was an infant, I can't remember how old but at least a month or more, I was changing her in the bathroom on the counter. She was still too little to turn over or anything. Someone knocked on the door which was right across the hall from the bathroom door, and I left her as I took three steps and opened the front door. It was the maintenance guy and we got into a conversation.

    About half an hour later I was typing on my computer when I had the feeling that something was wrong. I'd forgotten something. I shook it off. A few minutes later it came back again. And suddenly I remembered: I had a baby!!

    I ran to the bathroom, where she lay dozing blissfully on the counter. I was profoundly upset for a long time about that. The reason I was upset was not that I had forgotten her being on the counter. It was that for a little while, she simply did not exist for me. I looked at the bathroom when I shut the door (didn't see her), I thought about my days and my plans as I walked to my computer. She simply did not exist in them nor did any of my normal days or plans that obviously revolved around her. I couldn't understand how I had utterly forgotten that she even _existed_ and it was very upsetting.
