Cool dream, Brian...
Did I understand you correctly, in that you think your dream character was an IUOC?
Or, do you think that might have been a test. Perhaps it was attempting to get you to act out in anger and dissolved once it was clear you were not going to.
It very much reminds me of my first lucid dream that involved Ted and I wrote about in this thread. The dream characters were trying to get me to act out in anger, instead I laughed at them, which made them very angry while I, like you, saw it as entertaining.
I think you have nailed this down well as the most likely possibility..
The IUOC/ entity idea i felt were the lesser %.. I had much stronger intuitive feelings of the dream character placed into the dream by the IUOC..
and yes there were almost certainly "testing aspects", in the dream which I did not mention in my posting.. In fact several aspects to this testing. Every now and than, I will ask for these dream tests.. and in fact I have only recently requested some.
This than is a little lower confidence assertion than the above, but i did have the distinct impressions that the dream lesson blue print programs are set up with the idea that you will not become lucid ( at least to the high degree of lucidity that i obtained..) because otherwise I was able to perhaps " Over ride " the programming and take the dream of on an unintended direction .. But for me anyways this degree of high lucidity i had was quite rare of course..
But yes dream character , with a certain role to play.. came across to me quite strong in this dream.
There is also this concept of "dream fodder people
" as told to us in some earlier postings by the amazing autistic B
( who by far had the most detailed and best dream recall of any person I have ever met)... These were sorta like just "extras" like a big movie production might hire, but who are quite inactive and have little to do in terms of "roles" in the dream/ plays .. Obviously you would have to have remarkable dream recall like he had, to be aware of these "stand-in's" in a given dream.
