This dream occurred late last week early in the morning. At the end, I got up.

I am in a building with a group of people. It is a tall, glass skyscraper. I am with people who I know and we are all staying in a dormitory of single beds. Though we are quite high up off the ground. As I am lying there I can here the others around them. In the distance there is the drone of engines. The building shakes as each bomb goes off. They get closer, but they never reach us.


Scattered cubes

I think that this dream first occurred some time after I was 10 (1972). It continued for quite some time, though the frequency decreases over time, and then stopped apart from the odd reoccurrence in my mid 20’s. The dream is in black and white and always very short.

I stand in a field of broken cubes. They are about 5 times bigger than me and made of stone. It is a very sad sight. It is the ruins of my soul. They are meant to be stacked in a great arch up into the sky. They are not. They lie as rubble on the ground. I do not know how to put them back together.

An endless sea of peaceful minds

July 13, 2007

I am sleeping in a capsule hotel in Osaka, Japan. (this much is true). When I went to sleep, I was almost alone. I am aware. For some reason I am now facing the opposite way to what I went to sleep. My head is next to the bamboo shutter over the end of my capsule. I feel that I could reach out and open the shutter. It is not locked. But I choose not to. Whereas the place was empty when I went to sleep, now it is full. I can feel the grid formed by the capsules stretching down a few rows and left and right into the distance. The place is now full of people and there are very many. Two rows down and more than ten in each direction to the left and right. Their minds are peacefully asleep and there is a strange relaxing, comfortable feeling to the place.

When I woke up, the place was really full of people and they were all there using the facilities the next morning. It was a single sex place, so the business women were using the same bathroom facilities as the men. They were just one more person in the pace and no exception was made.  It was all very formal and demure.
