Dreaming LifeDreaming Life

The Mothership is a presence in a lot of my dreams, its pilot is Catface. It can be called down to assist me in difficulties. It can also change shape to try and blend in with its surroundings, with varying degrees of success.

For instance, in a relatively normal dream I had a while back I was with some friends and we needed to get to a party across town during rush hour which was impossible; so I told them I knew someone who has a helicopter and that I'd go and phone them.

I called up the Mothership and asked it to come and pick me up with some people and to make itself look like a helicopter.

When it came down to pick us up the rotor blades were completely silent as it hovered down in a very un-helicopter fashion but, worse still, Catface had placed a kind of fixed wing above the rotor blades and on this it had placed an array of potted plants to give the whole effect a more welcoming feel.

The inside of the machine was way too big and furnished with plush leather seats and a dining table...

When I call Catface to bring the ship I usually do it telepathically, but I sometimes have a device that I talk into like a watch or something.

The ship always appears as a tiny dot very high in the sky and comes almost straight down from above my head, never any other way....

The Mothership has a kind of retro low tech presence about it; even though it's by far the most advanced technology in my known sleeping universe... for instance, the Mothership has devices that can send objects back through their own time without moving them; this is how things are repaired, by making them brand new again - the devices always glow green.
