Saturday, December 7th, 1996, was the date of the latest Fly-By-Night Club dream
psi game, "The Holiday Ornament." That night I concentrated on a
telepathic target and mentally "sent" it out into dream space.
True to the Fly-By-Night Club theme, the "Holiday Ornament" is a
flying object: a tiny hang-glider. It is made of wood, cardboard, metal and
string. The colors of the hang-glider figure are yellow-gold with red, green and
black trim. The control bar is golden-colored and the kite wing is white, red,
goal, green and blue and tends towards a triangular or heart shape. The ornament
resides in a cubical box with a pastel floral-and-rainbow scene. The box is
filled with cotton balls, a fact which probably accounts for the many mentions
of the color "white" by dreamers. The figure is 2" tall; the kite
wing is 3" tall.

I see Linda come along with a wrapped gift. This immediately cues me to
become lucid. I greet Linda and open the package thinking it might be the
ornament. To my surprise there are several layers of wrapping paper. I note the
colors: the first layer has pink, peach and a light gray color to it, the second
layer is silver and the third layer is a striped gold paper. When I get to the
third layer I try to feel the item with my hands. I guess it is a dreamtime
pillow because it feels like a dreamtime pillow I just bought in Santa Crux in
waking life. In the dream I take notes on a piece of paper and tell Linda, I am
doing this to help me remember. I tell her I will call her when I wake up (on a
Correct: The cotton balls feel like a "dreamtime pillow."

I started out with noting a large X-Mas tree. I believe it was a real tree. I
seemed to be drawn to the top of it on several occasions, though I do not recall
specifically what was on or at the top. I think it was white. I somewhat recall
possibly an angel.
As I watched more I seemed to notice a box on the floor which then caught my
attention. The only thing that I recall, concerning the box, is that what was in
it was something that was possibly made of paper or cardboard. It seemed that
the item(s) within the box was made to either be cut out, or something along
that line, and put together.
Correct: Box made of paper-cardboard. I also cut out a piece of paper towel
as the backing (to block out light from the side) when I made color Xeroxes of
various parts of the ornament. (Later I will scan and post the images onto the
FBNC web site.)

...Gift box with a gold ribbon, cube shaped box. Ornament within was just a
simple, shiny glass ball with alternating red and green stripes separated by
bands of textured, golden glitter. The texture was very pleasant and crispy to

...While I'm on the plane, there is no place to sit, so I must sit in the
aisles of the grocery store until a seat opens up. While we are awaiting take
off, a horrible explosion and red fire occurs, we look out the window and it was
another plane, on the runway near us, not us. It was a small plane, not a big
jet like ours...our plane had no damage.
Correct: A flying object, but this sort of hang glider has "no place to
sit." Red color.
...me riding an old motorcycle by a Mexican restaurant that is run by a woman
with the same name as my grandmother. As I lean my transportation at the door of
this restaurant, it is not a motorcycle, but a very old bike made partially out
of wood and some old metal, perhaps green-colored metal.
Correct: Hang-glider leans to fly and is made of wood; control bar made of
metal. Ornament is not new. Magallon is a Mexican-American name.

As I laid down to sleep and repeated over and over, "I dream of the
Holiday Ornament" ... I found myself focusing in on a box and flew straight
towards it. Inside of the box was a heart shaped RED ornament with multi-colored
jewel -like trimmings.
I flew into the box and into the ornament and found myself sitting in a room
with some people that I know in this life, and some that I don't...in this life,
but possibly from another.
I saw a WHITE man-made tree with ornaments that were all just numbers hanging

I tried hypnagogia in the early morning hours and got a very spontaneous,
clear image of a small stylized xmas tree, made out of wood, painted gold. Two
Xmas tree shaped pieces of wood slotted together. The ornament looked
If I can trust my impression of size, I say it only seemed about 3-4 inches
tall. You would hang it by a golden loop attached to the top. A view from the
top, or the bottom would make the ornament look like a golden X.
Correct: Size of kite wing, wood, gold color, "loop" string.

I was exploring an ancient temple which had lain undiscovered in some remote
area of the world. I was inside the temple, which consisted of large cavernous
rooms, constructed from huge ponderous stone. At present I was looking down into
a square pit - about two feet on each side - which was sunk in the stone floor
of the room in which I was standing. I was somewhat confused, because I thought
that I had earlier discovered a stone statue of a god, about two feet high, at
the bottom of this shaft. However, I now could not remember if I had taken the
statue out of the pit and put it somewhere else, or if it was still at the
bottom of the hole...
...My companions had decided not only to examine the temple, but to renovate
it. All around me were piles of debris from where the walls and ceilings had
been stripped of the stone plasterboard-like material which had covered the
interior. The place was a mess. Apparently it had been the intention of my
companions to tear off the old material from the walls and ceilings, and
completely replace it with new material...
Finally, however, I entered a large room, a room which somehow seemed like
the center of the temple...
The statue - about two foot high - was made of white stone, almost like
sandstone. The features of the statue had been worn away so that it was
impossible to tell exactly what it was supposed to represent, although it
clearly had the general form of a human being. However it was not the statue
itself which now most demanded my attention, but what was behind the statue.
I was transfixed as I watched what was happening on the wall. It seemed as if
the whole wall were moving, as if it were alive. And right behind the statue,
some kind of figure began to rise up, as if out of some slot behind the mantel.
As the figure rose, I saw that it appeared to be a flat piece of bronze, about
six feet tall, in the shape of a stylized human being. However although it was
made of metal, it was clear to me that the flat figure was alive, and that it
must be the god which inhabited this temple...
Correct: I (giant figure) opened the lid (moving wall) of the cubical
cardboard box (square pit) and took the 2" hang-glider figure (2' statue)
out of the cardboard box (temple) which was filled with white cotton balls
