That is an incredible "dream" you had, Corey! Do you remember at all what color the being was?
I'll share a recent and similar dream with you!
-I was standing on a hard platform with somebody and we began to walk down into a sort of slope, which immediately put us underwater. The water was dark, and I saw something moving swiftly away from me. I did not feel like I was in water, but everything around me was. The figure moving away from me was a massive octopus-like being, was "tall" in that it was vertical and long. The head was very large. The body maybe 5-7 feet tall. The octopi was dark, maybe a blueish color and had long tentacles which moved gently with the rest of the body. It moved swiftly away from us and around a corner. We seemed to be in a sort of underwater enclave or "building". I perceived it like a house. In another "room" there were several other octopi on the ground or "floor" and understood them to be close in what we would term friends, and that they were young. I walked into another area where there were two other octopi communicating with each other.
One of them seemed be very "frustrated" and "grumpy". The other one talking to him was a female and was very upbeat and unaffected by the others negative attitude. Suddenly the "person" with me finally spoke, saying something like, "And you can see here that she is showing much empathy, but is not being pulled down by the other." The voice was speaking of the upbeat female." Then I suddenly woke up, 10 minutes late for work.
There were other silly aspects of this dream, such as the odd presence of a refrigerator in what seemed like a kitchen, which seemes extremely out of place, now that I think about it! ;)
