I just had a dream where I had a Osram Golden Linear 60w SLI/H lamp in my collection.

Has anyone had any nightmares about lighting such as seeing vintage lanterns getting scrapped for LED or getting a rare light bulb broken?

I dreamt that I had seen T17 fixtures in service in front of a pawn shop.

I had a dream where I found a book about how James Hooker got into lighting.

When I was younger I used to have dreams about turning on incandescent lamps but they would be very dim, and creepy. There were a couple of lights that gave me nightmares, one being a double spot light fixture in my house (where I slept when I was small) that had 2 40w reflector lamps angled down next to each other, needless to say they looked like a pair of staring eyes (I was like 2 at the time!) The same can be said for another fixture at my grandparents place which is similar. I dreamt once that when I turned it on, the reflector lamps glowed red, like evil eyes. A couple more, I once dreamed an angled bedside light I had was on the floor of my room, with a very bright bulb in and it must have been possessed as it was swivelling around crazily on its own (the lamp could be angled in real life). I was young at the time, and never used that lamp again!

I have a couple more recent ones I remember now. One was that I returned to Spain to see my family again, but none of the HPS lights remained any more and everything was led... Another even more recent one was this: I found myself in a very plain and well lit large basement room. Nothing in it apart from very large cardboard boxes on the floor, lots of them. I peered over the edge and there was all manner of lamps, I just shoved them into a bag but it seemed pointless as there were so many and boxes all around me! I was very disappointed when I woke up...  :poof:

Hey, that happened for real around here a couple of years ago. We went on holiday for 2 weeks and when we came back I thought we'd turned into the wrong street, all the perfectly working HPS lamps were gone, and you know what had replaced them  :'(

Oh, I had another dream last night... I was in a large abandoned building, a long corridor with small rooms either side (looked a bit prison like). In 1 of these small rooms I found a wall-mounted fixture with an opal diffuser, I took that off and there were 2 35w SOX lamps inside! They were modern Philips lamps with the red cap and brown dot-matrix font, but they said "made in Vietnam" on them! In a second room, there was a large pile of (all 2ft 20w) fluorescents lying against the wall! It was very vivid, I can remember picking up: a Westinghouse black ender (made in USA), a Sylvania tube with a picture of a dinosaur(!) on it (this was a dream where I could hear my thoughts and I figured this one was a reptile tube, made in Germany), a Sylvania 15w T8 (not 2ft 20w) with 70s Thorn endcaps and "Lifeline" type etch with loads of extra logos and things (not sure where it was made), a GE 20w BLB T12 (made in USA), and 2x 20w T12 tubes with Slimline ends. These last ones were odd as they were a normal 2ft in length, but had Slimline style ends placed over Atlas endcaps, they said ECO on them (that was the brand name in block capitals!) and then like "White - made in Great Britain" - I figured in the dream they were Atlas made tubes and ECO was an export brand! (Something which Atlas did a lot in real life).

I had a weird lighting dream last night... So I'm in a large, old, and messy hardware store, that is mostly lit via F32T8s, of which 90% of them were dead, mercury starved, or contaminated. One corner of the store  however, was lit via 10 150w HPS floodlights arranged sort of in a circle, however, all of them were cycling (including one lamp that had two arc tubes). I went over to the lighting aisle and found a Sylvania BT-37 shaped 400w mercury vapor lamp and a generic ED-37 shaped 400w mercury vapor lamp, both of which were missing their bases, right next to them was a pile of mostly empty lamp boxes. I start digging through the boxes until I found a blank black box. After finding the box, I noticed that all the F32T8s were replaced with LED highbays, but I open the box I found and inside is a ED-37 GE 400w /X mercury vapor lamp, I started to make my way to check out, but then I woke up.

I had a dream that some of the ITT 327s at a Manchester NH strip mall were replaced with AEL ATB2s.

In my most recent one (a couple of nights ago) there was a 4 or 5 foot T12 tube above washbasins in a wooden toilet block which looked to have been built in the corner of a barn, which at first was labelled "Northlight" (I'd love one or two of those in real life) but when switched on, turned out to be a very bluish colour which I "recognized" as SkyWhite although I've never seen one in person and in the dream it was not very bright; having read through this thread I see I'm not the only one who sometimes has this with in-dream lighting.

There are many others which I'll be happy to recount in due course.

This one I had 2 nights ago, I was at a gymnasium (presumably for basketball) that was upgrading their MH highbays with LED. Randomly I saw myself at the pile of old lights and I moved one to the side and I saw a Gumball! What’s odd is that the glass was cyan! I don’t remember if I took it or not because the dream seemed to just end.

I had one last night where part of it was me trying to find some colored glass clear 3 way light bulbs in these weird blister packs and could only find a pack with a dead one, it was so frustrating! >:( :P

I recently had a dream where I saw some eBay listings featuring many different SLI/H lamps and I saw that one of the listings featured an SLI/H lamp with RDC endcaps normally found on North American HO and VHO fluorescent tubes.
