I wonder if you have ever seen the TV show, “Falling Water”? It is all about the power of dreaming and how our dreams tap into the “collective consciousness” of all of humanity. Hence , our individual dreams are pieces of a vast mosaic making it possible to communicate with others on a subconscious level.
The antagonist on the show has discovered this phenomenon via a huge investment of research time and money. He also discovers that there is a population of unique people scattered throughout society that harness this intuitive energy on a subconscious -level to communicate into the dreams of others. He finds a few of these people and tries to manipulate them into both cultivating and using this rare subconscious intuition to enter into and influence the dreams of others (for selfish ends, of course). One of theses “Dreamers” works for a huge investment firm and is propositioned to invade the dreams of his colleagues to gain “insider trading” secrets on Wall Street.
I think that you would thoroughly enjoy this T. V. show, JohnnyD54! It is on Hulu.
Regarding your dream last night: Let me ask you this - Is this the FIRST time that you have had this dream? Or, did you sense that some of the images from your dream were familiar and that, in some way, you had been in this situation BEFORE.?
That is one of the phenomena which I would like to discuss and explore during our ZoomCast; the idea of chronology or dreams occuring in sequence. Similar to what Douggins related in one of his dreams about the book he was looking for. I think that it is so strange when dreams continue over several nights and a little bit more of the “dream circumstance” is revealed each time. Almost as if…something is unfolding before your eyes (as a participant observer) and you get a little bit further along in this particular dream experience every time you return to it. For some reason, “something” is preventing you from experiencing the entire circumstance to completion. Instead, you participate in the dream part - by - part.
It happens to me so frequently in my dreams that I can actually recognize (in the midst of my dream state) that I have been here before in a dream. I will actually tell others in the dream what is going to happen next (because I have visited this particular dream several times).
Is this similar to what you were describing in your earlier posts (incl. the “Sleep Cycle” map)?
