Recent dream - I step out of a crowded elevator into an empty hallway. I turn, and a blue and yellow spider leaps towards me. I catch it by a few legs and give it a frightened toss down the hall. I note that it had the distinctive texture of Silly Putty. Later, I find that this alien spider had become a kind of brown seed... like a walnut with microscopic spikes. As I hold it, it starts to grow and fade into green; I clamp it in a piece of paper until I can force it into a glass bottle for observation. I'm getting very nervous. I decide to twist the ends of the paper into a kind of bon bon, to trap the growing thing inside. I note that it seems to grow faster in the dark; suddenly it bursts from the wrapper and flops onto the floor. It has become a sort of big sloppy green caterpiller. It begins to stretch, like when you're making a clay snake. Rings of all colors stretch into place on its body. I try to pick it up to place in a bottle, but it breaks into two moving halves. As I do this, the grounded half begins to divide at the ends as it gets longer; branching into a double-tree of cycling colors. I scoop it into the bottle, piece-by-piece. I leave the bottle, and return later to find that it has exploded leaving a pile of moving white foam on the floor. An external voice informs me that this is a pile of the creature's base pairs. At one side, the foam seems to be condensing and pulling more foam towards that side; it is forming a new creature by knitting the foam particles together. It turns out to be an obscenely red rabbit, with fangs. I throw a net over it, and suddenly Kyle MacLachlan has put it into a glass tube and is killing it with a flamethrower.
I woke up that morning with a flu. Dreams like that don't come free.
