Is this a premonition? I hope not.

I had a dream last night that China bombed the United States and took everyone as slaves. We were all seperated from our families and they put us in chains. They took over the country and the government. When we got to China they treated us very good. It was the wierdest dream I've ever had, and the only one I've ever remembered. It was so real it scared me.
Finally!

Sigmund Freud. Psychologist.

Also, Karl Jung and his archetypes. i.e. dream interpretation stuff.

You have two major schools of dream interpretation: mystical and psychological. You can break them down further, but at the root, it tends to go down to those two.

It is rare that we dream in the form of premenitions, especially not in exact ones unless we purposefully go enact what we dermpt.

In any case, the first hit on google for dream interpretation hints that you feel out of control about factors in your life. The bomb bit can be symbolic of things bottled up exploding outward, or helplessness from being bombarded. Family (except in cases of abuse, et c.) tends to represent stability and security.

Lots of things changing in your life? =)

I don't know what is more disturbing, your dream or the fact that you don't know who Freud is.

Freud would probably say the bombs/missiles would be some phallic imagery.
In my opinion Freud was a weirdo and had some weird issues.

It is a bit weird how you've never heard of Frued, I've known about him since I was about 5 or something. Then again he appears in a episode or two of Star Trek: The Next Generation (obviously an actor dressed as Freud), which I've watched since I was young.

My answer to this is to just bomb China back if this actually happens. lol. But war is discusting and we already have enough of it in Iraq... We don't need another fight.

Anyways, I find thoughts to be interesting and people say I should be a phycyrotrist (okay, I sounded out the word and I can't spell it) but the most that would come out of my mouth is,"You suck!" and,"You're stupid!!". I don't think I'd be able to help anybody lol... I'm interested in the people who have to be dressed into those nice, pretty beds with straps... (people in insane asylums *evil laugh*)

I think your dream is quite interesting and it'd be neat to look deeper into it. My mom has a friend and her work who can read dreams. I want her to read mine sometime. She's a nice lady too. :)

I've also had many weird dreams such as:
-My crush seeing me naked in public.
-Being in videogames.
-Somebody stealing my mother's rings and I'm on the quest to finding them (I have this dream EVERY YEAR and I always wake up with tears....:o)
-Making fun of people I make fun of already.
-Going on wacky trips to Japan.
----
Yeah... I don't have problems, but these are mighty weird dreams.
I've also never thought I'd see a guy who looks EXACTLY like a guy from a video game today at a Jewel store... He had the hair, the clothes... the everything. :o :o :o
I should just shut up. I'm even creeping myself out now too... :o :( lol!! :D

So the reports of his death were greatly exaggerated? ;)

No offence to your mother's friend, but I don't think all dreams have meaning. I think some do, but not all.

I have really weird dreams as well like,
Meeting people from Video Games, TV shows AND Anime.
Going out in public with no shoes on (my version of the "naked in public" dream, which I've never had).
People from animes speaking in English BUT with their Japanese voices (I once had Kaji and Asuka from NGE in my dream talking like that).
Going out on a date with a girl and never seeing her face (more annoying than you would think).
Strange things happening to me, like being bounced around like a pinball (it starts slow then gets faster and faster and faster...one of my worst nightmares, doesn't sound scary but it is).
Being chased by a large dark mass, and thinking I've woken up...but then the dark mass appears again.

And I sometimes have dreams that come true, usually it's just small things though. Like being in math class doing equations, then a few weeks later I was in math and I looked down at my book and I was doing the EXACT same equations as I was in my dream.
But over the last year, I haven't been able to remember very many of my dreams.
