I had a vivid dream a year ago that I was in a laboratory with someone standing behind me. I do not know who it was standing behind me and I never looked but I knew they were there. In this dream I was only an observer and not a participant. In front of my was a large glass cylinder with a bald black man floating in it. He was floating in what looked like vegetable oil. He looked dead and had blue and red wires connected to his head and all over his body and was only in his boxers. Suddenly two people came in. It was an actress from the show The Waltons named Mary Ellen and a psychiatrist I know named Dr. Solomon. They were both dressed in lab coats and had clipboards in their hands. They looked at the man and went around the laboratory talking, and Dr. Solomon kept admiring and complementing Mary Ellen (who is a nurse on the Walton's) and how well she was doing and growing. They then left the room. Once they left, the black man in the cylinder suddenly opened his eyes and began freaking out, flaying his arms and legs while in the vegetable oil substance.
In this dream I felt curious about the man and wondering why I was seeing Mary Ellen from the Walton's and Dr. Solomon
