There are many paths you can take to reach immortality, or at least to travel through all time and space. First you must leave your “dimension” through caves, which “trim” you down somehow. I saw the whittling of a green essence, apparently a person’s soul. From there you reach a harbor “hub world”. Imputing a certain number to take you back to your time and place. At least your experience of it, as each person has a different experience or interpretation. The code is based on your name.

1 B – 1 at start
3 E – 3 zeroes start
…somehow I reached 3 billion as the number in the dream.
The harbor was not where you began travelling to a dimension. Rather it was where you landed. To go to another dimension you had to travel through more maze-like tunnels (soft, almost mossy, greenish color, wet). Maybe you had to go to another area of the harbor, maybe not. Some experience time travellers used secret portals only they knew in the harbor.
The portal is some form of water, some water you have to jump or fall through. Some portals, at least the “official” ones had escorts. That was how I used mine.
So what was the original world I was trying to escape? It was a stale land, rocks, maybe desert, but always a sickly green fog hue. An old aristocratic family that was dying mostly populated it. The people there seemed to never age yet were always old – yet, there was an inevitable, slow aging, a decline.
How a person in this family is born. The mother lays an egg. The egg hatches, a serpent comes out, and it slowly transforms into an adult. You can even see the phase of the person looking like a lizard person because the metamorphosis is so slow. And the person comes out as a complete adult. But he will quickly age to a sickly middle age soon. Regardless there is much celebration for each rare birth.
