This time somehow I found these two small'ish dogs (like 40cm in length), in a white plastic bag in my room. As I opened the bag and stuff and played around with them, eventually the black one sprinted off across the room, ran through the balcony and fell to its death... I dont even know if dogs die from falling like 15 feet, but in my dream the poor fella became a pancake of sorts
I think the scene chagnes and I'm in some other room that's not my actual room I live in, but it's understood that it's my room. The other dog, a brown one, has become starved and its bones are showing etc. I dont even remember what happens after that but it was all just wtf. I've never even had a dog either (although my neighbors have like a total of 9 of them among various families)
I swear at least part of it was caused by reading that Mario SS where Mario rapes Peach, is expelled from the "video game actor" work world, his life becomes shit, he works in the sewers (plumber etc), and has a starving yoshi as his pet and in the end Luigi is a billionaire. In the end basically everyone dies and it's overall tragic, and it was actually pretty well written... I digress.
what's up with these fucked up dreams I'm having basically every other day -___-
I dunno maybe black-brown-white or any dark to light color is maybe associated to some delineating value of goodness. I mean, darker the color the more ominous it is for most people, maybe you've opened up something and only to let lose some terrible things in the back of your curiosity? A familiar part of your feelings but otherwise elsewhere, maybe that represents you room. Maybe that first room represents a part of something gone and your onto another thats started to wear out?
I'm talking out of my ass, I'm doing this for fun, psychoanalysis is pretty much bull anyways.
But horses? WTF AT HORSES?

When I open plastic bags in my dreams my arm melts, or a swarm of flying robot pumpkins attacks me, or the room turns upside-down and the bag changes into one of those ceiling things from half-life which grab you with a really long sticky tongue and pull you up into its mouth.
So I stop opening them, then later on when I kill a behemoth it leaves a chest and some gil. So I open the chest, but it's actually a mimic and turns into an opened plastic bag and I think "ooooh crap."
My dreams are every bit as fucked up as yours, I seriously doubt the authenticity of any scientific claims about dreams having any sort of significance
Ehhh, I know that's popular belief, but I think that's stupid. Dreams come from somewhere. If I analyse my own dreams carefully enough, I can always link them to recent event in my life (usually that day) and what's been on my mind a lot lately. Sometimes it's not clear cut, and you'd definitely need to be me to fully understand them (making analysing someone else's dreams difficult), but they aren't insignificant.
For instance... I have nightmares pretty much every night, and they play on my personal fears. To tell me it's just random luck that they happened to be the things I'm most scared of is ridiculous, which means, scientifically, they're very telling, if only as reminders to me. It's scientific, at least in my case, because it's testable (I go to sleep), it's repeatable (I see my emotions played on every dream), and it's normally distributed (I'm the only person whose dreams I'm concerned with, so 100% of the people I want to test have been tested).
Symbols have specific meaning to every individual. Dreams are just those symbols. Since the same symbol might mean something different to me, than it does to me, that's why you can't analyse accurately someone else's dreams unless you're very intimate with them (and even then, you might not know everything you need to know to do a good job)... Point being... That the individual has the ability to analyse his or her own dreams. It's just a lost cause if you're not already a naturally critical thinker.

Dreamexplenation is in no way a science. Way to slippery. As you never had dogs, the dogs symbolise something. Did you care about the dogs in your dream. It could be something you care about is running out of control IRL (the dog running of to his death) or neglected (dieing of hunger). Just my two cents. I have xplained dreams with succes before. The better I know the person the more likely my explanation is close. So I could be way of. Thing that appear in dreams tent to mean the same thing to different people and even different cultures. You could look it up. Could be bullocks or just stress causing frantic bizzare dreams.
