Do you guys have dreams that continue other dreams? My dreams are strange in that it's really more like it's own world.

As an example, I had a dream 3 years ago. My cat irl at the time was a stray and I dreamt that a bunch of cats looking just like him were roaming the neighborhood. Then, months later, I had a dream about these cats again. It picked up right where the last one left off, and despite me not being able to recall this dream awake (at the time) I could recall all the details of what "happened" inside of the dream. It continued by me having some of these cats come inside the house and being unable to tell which one was my original cat. Finally, a few weeks ago, this dream was continued. Since I last had this dream my cat has died. He had a scar on his ear irl from when he scratched himself once on accident and it bled for like a week. In this most recent dream, these cats were roaming around my house still. I felt bad because I knew my cat had died yet all these cats were still here so it was like he'd never left. Then I take one of these cats and while petting it, I realize it has his scar on its ear. Then I began to wonder if my cat had actually died or if it was one of these lookalikes.

I've had other dreams which continue like this, each in their own little timeline. The more and more the dreams are continued, the easier it is for me to recall the dreams that led up to them. The first dream about those cats I couldn't remember, but after having it continued twice, I was able to recall old dream in the new dream and then I could recall it irl.

Very weird.

Pic related, my baby boy who is no longer with us. I miss him so much.

In the 1980's there was a series of documentaries called The Way of the Dream which analyzed closely the significance of dreams and roles they can play in our lives. They extensively interviewed one of Carl Jung's leading protegies, Marie von Franz, who is not just worth listening to but her books are equally illuminating. While Freud was definitely onto something with dreams, not even Carl Jung would deny that, his absolute insistence that they are essentially perversions of wish fulfillment and nothing more is in my view an incomplete take. This disagreement about the nature of dreams was the major reason for why Freud and Jung split, and I have to say that Jung's take is a lot more insightful.

In any case, The Way of the Dream is an excellent introduction to Jung's appreciation of dreams, and the full documentary including all its episodes can be found here:

Edit: Here's a short clip from that documentary series incase to help you gauge your interest:

It's been almost a year but a recent interest lead me to start reading a bunch of Jung's texts, and he really knew this stuff better than Freud.

I see now that Freud's method is like a hammer, and when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. But Jung seems to have a much more nuanced take, though much too hard to summarize as I did for the Freudian method in my other post in this thread.

Thanks for the recommendation. von Franz's puer aeterni book is a little scary in how accurately it can paint many who fall into nostalgia (very prescient for our kind of forum culture), so I'll check out the video.

I had a dream about me living in a van and traveling from state to state, all the while, the entirety of America was living under austere martial law. From what I remember, it contained its own server room and pc's to like a personal HAM radio station too from what I can recall.

I have had recurring dreams of people chasing me down and trying to kill me. One in particular Im still in high school and get chased out into this forest and climb a tree while the people yell at me from below. I used to wake up like from a nightmare but now the dreams have become normal. I was never bullied in high school or anything and I have no idea why I keep having these dreams, however I am quite a paranoid person.
