Elaborate Dreamscapes & Stories

I tend to have long epic dreams, with proper storylines (though I often don't get to finish them) and a full special effect budget!

Even weirder, I have had several dreams that will occur in the same setting, however, the setting isn't based on anywhere that exists - for example, I've had several dreams that occur in a futuristic space station, I can even map out parts of it. When I dream about it again, I can recognise places & find my way around.

I'm never myself in these dreams - I've even switched character to someone I've met in the dream - for example, I dreamt I was a boy trying to escape a house with a vampire in, when I escaped, I was suddenly the vampire chasing the escaping boy.

Friends I've told my dreams to are always impressed by how film like they are, however, nobody else I know has dreams that match in length or scope - it could be that most are unable to remember their dreams that well or clearly.

So - is it that I have unusually dreams - or an unusually good memory for them?

Sounds like you can lucidly dream - I've never manage to control what's happening in a dream.<br />

It must to fun to be able to dreams so vividly & control what's happening.

I do, I have dreams, where i have concous thought and i hear myself thinking, "no this isnt right" or whatever, if im having a bad dream, i can change, ill say in my dream no i dont like this, and ill think of something else. while im dreaming! weird huh? and i know what you mean, i remember my dreams in exact detail like i saw it in a movie, and i can map it out too. its not good memory its something different. somthing special about us, but i dont know what.
