Dream Within a Dream

Great minds dream alike.

"Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream? "

The main character dreams that a giant cantaloupe is out to get him, then wakes up with a start. After a moment of sitting up and panting. he realizes it was All Just a Dream. then gets up and goes to the Bathroom for a Glass of Water — only to find the giant cantaloupe there waiting for him. He wakes up with a start again. because of course the first waking-up bit was part of the dream. Also available in 'Dream Within a Dream Within a Dream', 'Dream Within a Dream Within a Dream Within a Dream', and so on, although some discretion is preferred.

There are two different variations of this. One is where a dream plays out and a character falls asleep in the dream world and has another dream (usually something incredibly abstract and trippy, this may be from deep in the subconscious) before eventually "waking" back up into the "real" dream world where the original dream continues (other stuff may have happened in the original dream while they were "asleep"). The other, more common variant is what's known as a "false awakening" which really isn't so much a dream within a dream as it is dreaming about waking up while still asleep in reality. In Real Life. along with the "dream within a dream" and "false awakening" occurrences is a final variation where someone falls asleep in a dream and as a result wakes up in reality.

If taken out far enough, and if all the many-layered dreams are substantially the same, what you can get is a "Groundhog Day" Loop.

Sometimes will pull a twist by having a character wake up from a dream, then something else bizarre happens, and an altogether different character will wake up from that dream.
