Very cool. Gives me chills to think of the direction life takes in an evolutionary and personal sense. Species and individuals succumb to the raw and senseless trajectories of nature.

the military research lab is located under an overpass, and its primary activity takes place at night, so that gives me the impression of subconscious events, stuff that is going on just beyond the awareness of the inhabitants. the overpass itself could symbolize the routine of daily life which has become so effortlessly engaging that it appears to make no difference whether one should divert from it.


Great point.

Yes. Exhilaration of a threat and loss, retrogressive transformation. A new kind of burnt life for those who desire to live. Amor fati, whatever way we take.

hi fellas, still pondering.

i googled boba fett's ship to see what it looks like. found the following images:



for me it conjures the idea of a person wearing armor. without distinct legs, though, and with the "arms" spread out, it also reminds me of an angelic pose. or a crucifix. more thoughts on this forthcoming...

mario: which woman did you look at first, the one on the left or the one on the right?



Flew that one in X-Wing alliance (golden oldie). Bit slow on the turns, but the firepower is wicked !

Im sitting at a medium sized wooden desk in an empty room. It actually a study that you would imagine a rich person having. Only the shelves are completly empty and the desk near some windows in the back. I'm not looking out the windows, but I know its dark and autumn, and I'm facing the front of the room where there is just a door in the middle of this blank white wall. Above the door is a clock that doesn't tick. Just an analogue clock with a green circle around it. At the desk there is an open, worn, notebook that I have written in, but, its all just incoherent drug influenced bullshit (this was my thought in the dream). I rub my face in frustration, and when I look back up, two women are standing in front of the desk. The clock is perfectly placed in between both of their heads in the background. One at a time I look at each of them one, then focus on the clock. I say, I cant wait anymore, I should'nt have to wait, I waited for too long. The two women look at me coldly and viciously as I break down and cry all over the desk.

hi mario,

sorry for the delay in getting back to you, my life has been a whirling tornado of late. thanks for being patient.

the theme of deliberate surrender stands out in this dream very strongly to me. this impression, of course, is influenced externally by the growth i've seen your writing, which seems to have clearly matured from your initial forays into exercises in stream-of-consciousness writing. this style of writing is one of deliberate surrender, and drug-induced excursions are likewise forms of surrender. so it gives me an overall context of your being able to just let go and let events proceed of their own accord, while you contribute the artful eye of your proverbial pen to document the experience. this idea is also conjured in the dream by the presence of the desk at which you are seated, the shelves of the room empty of books (symbols of preconceived knowledge), the walls blank like the page, allowing you to take in and take note of everything as it happens. you are facing the front of the room with windows in the back, opening your mind to the influences of the subconscious. the door ahead of you may symbolize the uncertainty of your future from where you now sit.

the two women preside in a way which expresses dominance of the feminine archetype, which as you may recall from previous interpretations indicates themes of emotionality, spirituality, and surrender. the clock between them indicates your awareness of the time passing, and the desire (which you express at the end) to stop letting go and restore a feeling of having some control over the situation.

the color green can mean a lot of different things. it's the color of money, for example. "green" is also a common catchphrase nowadays for environmental awareness, which is how i'm inclined to interpret its presence in this dream, in a circle around the clock. during your recent periods of letting go, you have been demonstrating an acute sense of vigilance of what is happening in your environment, and of how to give homage to these events.

obviously, there would occur some subsequent frustration when you feel like you aren't able to produce anything coherent as a result of the experience. this frustration is expressed in the dream in the notebook filled with "incoherent drug influenced bullshit". such is the roulette of recreational drug use, from which you may on one occasion take away from the table something very profound and meaningful, and on other occasions you find yourself in a place that is no longer accessible on your return to the "real" world.

i think what is also happening during these events is the opening of a window into past emotional traumas or sensitivities. this idea is occurring to me by way of several things. one is that you looked at the woman on the right first, then the one on the left. normally we read from left to right, so traditionally movement from left to right indicates a transition of focus in the direction of the future. however, in this case, your focus transitions from right to left which indicates movement of your attention toward the past. also, your frustration leads to tears in the end, which indicates to me that you have a lot of grief coming up as a result of past events. another comes from having had similar experiences myself. last but not least the windows in the dream, in the back of the room allowing energy to enter the room your subconscious, the "back of your mind" as it were.

cheers,
lib

p.s. just to let you know, the couch will be shutting down for a little while. more info in this thread.

Last night's dream (Actually only the part that I vividly remember):

My two upper front teeth and one lower front teeth are aching badly (so painful - like they are being "squeezed" so tightly.) Then one of the the upper front fell off (the one on the right)- without blood but I remember looking at the root of the tooth.

I have a post here I have deleted during the hiatus which I would like to revive but I lost my mod powers. Can you revive it lib? grin Pretty please? :p

By the way, a friend asked me what I thought of his dream. Says when he awoke, he felt like it means something. Here goes:

trying to find a place with a bunch of friends but the house not being right, so we left. Outside we meet annoying 16-17-18 year olds who are abusive. I get to talk to a girl but of course she hates my guts. She annoys me but something peaks my interest
I end up talking to her and she opens up to me and in the time span of maybe 30 min. or an hour we become friends of sorts
I see her as my protege or something and my friends drive off, we jump in the car but we race in the other direction... her convinced of the right way (she behind the wheel) but I'm not but I don't stop her either
In fact, despite the mad speed I trust her, don't really want to leave, even if it means I'm going in the wrong direction. I woke up when we had a big jump with the car.

hello miss hyena! so sorry, just now noticed your recent post here. i've restored the previous post per your request, also you might take a look in the thinking forum to see if your mod abilities are restored. hopefully should be working now. thumb up

regarding the tooth dream, what were your feelings about the dream while it was happening? usually the front teeth have to do with how we feel about our appearance. using the traditional interpretations of right & left, the idea of losing one of your right front teeth could perhaps suggest a fear of intellectual inadequacy, which could be interpreted a number of different ways - for example, not feeling knowledgeable enough on a certain topic, feeling ineffective while handling a certain event. if you can remember what was happening in your life during that time (for example the day or days before), it could be relevant.

regarding your friend, how old is he? (it would have bearing on the interpretation)

I only vaguely remember the dream now. But what struck me most was how painful it was, the pain seem so real.

As to my friend, he's 32. smiling face

traditionally, losing a tooth in a dream represents some form of insecurity. it could relate to a transitional state, a growing pain reminiscent of when we as pre-adolescent children lose our teeth on our path of maturation.

as for your friend's dream, it could be connected to a lot of different things. for example on a literal level, memories of someone who interested him in real life who inspired him to open up emotionally and spiritually. on a more symbolic level, it may represent a period of his life where he's learning to let go and trust the flow of events. in either case, the dream definitely suggests a feeling of growth and openness. perhaps to the point of being reckless, but in general i get a positive feeling from his description of the dream.

I dreamt that my house was on fire and all my friends were stuck inside. I was the one who started it, intentionally. That's all I can remember.

What does this mean to you guys? It is open for interpretation.

My brother and I are in our living room and I forget who does what, but one of us holds a well sized puppy, and the other cuts it right up the middle on it belly. I grab its intestines and see how long they are by walking away. The dog is crying and moaning in pain, so I put them back in his belly.
My brother and I then make this extremly comfortable, warm nook for the puppy and tuck it in as it slowly dies.
We wrap the puppy in the blankets, put it in a backpack and leave the bag behind my garage.
