The Strangest Dream I Ever Had

The Strangest Dream I Ever Had

I had a dream a while back that was like no other dream I have had in my life.

It was very confusing and took me some time thinking about it to begin to figure it out.

Still not sure I have.

There were two people in the beginning. But it is more complicated than that. It was my mother and father and they were young. They both looked like movie stars from the golden age of cinema when they were younger. Everything fell apart for them later in life, including their marriage. In the dream they were glamorous and they were on a train. 

I said it was complicated. My wife and I were there too, but it is like we were somehow co-mingled with my parents. It was only our minds. So there were the physical bodies of my parents and our four minds and it was like we were all one.

My mother spoke to my father as they were seated on the train. She said, "Where did the time go?"

My father replied, "here."

My mother said again, "why does it sow so long?"

I knew that she meant "sow" as in sowing seeds and I am not sure, but I think she was talking about time.

The next thing I knew my parents (all of us) were standing near the exit of the train and my daughter was outside the door and she was maybe twenty years older than she is now.  

My daughter was a bit excited as she said "we are so getting out of this place!" 

That was it.

Later that day I realized that it was the anniversary of my mother's death. 

The dream could be a pun about sowing time. I looked it up and in the Bible the time of sowing is around the autumnal equinox, which is nearly upon us. 

This is a profound dream. My mother asked "where does the time go?" and my father answered "here," so where is "here"?

I believe that the here he was referring to is eternity where the two of them are.

All time (and space) are draining into eternity.

The oceans of this earth seem pretty big to us, but if you imagine all of those oceans being poured into another ocean that goes on forever they are really not much of anything in those terms.

That is what is happening to our space-time. It is being stretched out into eternity.

Anything divided by infinity is nothing. That is what time is. Time is nothing in eternity.

It seems like it takes so long for time to pass, but when it's gone we realize how truly short the time is. 

We'll talk about my Palawan and SCS dreams (many of them) some other time.
