I was away on holiday last week, on the Lleyn peninsula in Wales, UK - we had no Internet access between 23rd August and 30th August (but for once we
had a phenomenal view of the stars, owing to a total lack of light pollution in the area, which was a great experience).
On Wednesday 27th August, my wife greeted me in the morning with a cup of coffee, sat on the bed, and said she had experienced a very unusual dream.
Now, it's important for you to know that she knows next to nothing about WW2, being as she is from a Latin American country, where it isn't
mentioned much in the school curriculum, and clearly they don't have the memorial services we do, etc. She also knows next to nothing about
conspiracy theories, save for the fact that she's married to a conspiracy buff. She's an X Factor fan, and prefers soap operaz to any other form of
television - she especially hates documentaries.
With that in mind, her dream was as follows:
She was told that on the 19th September 2014, the Nazi regime would re-emerge from hiding in Antarctica, and would present Hitler (or someone who
appears to be Hitler) to the world. This would apparently precipitate a major global conflict. She was told that the Nazis had developed their
technology to unbelievable levels, and we would be unprepared to deal effectively with the consequences.
And that was it. I proceeded to scare the crap out of her by explaining that there is a fully fledged theory surrounding the idea that Hitler and/or
many thousands of his cronies had escaped from Europe at the end of the war, in a fleet of U-Boats bound for Antarctica and certain parts of South
When we arrived home (NW England) and had the luxury of Internet access once again, I logged on to ATS (as you do), and this thread regarding the
Antarctic tunnels was the top story on the home page. I set about reaquainting myself with the legends of Nazis in Antarctica, covered a wealth of
new material, and realised I had managed to scare the crap out of myself too. Now of course, we can say 'it was only a dream' - but that level of
specificity is striking, considering her total ignorance of the theories (or even basic historical knowledge concerning Naziism.
I suppose we shall see. Someone whom I once suspected of having a covert gov connection once replied to my comment regarding a beautiful panoramic
skyscape with the words: "There's still a war going on up there".
One final thing - my auto-text fill function on my phone just completed that little quote without any need for me to type anything but
And halfway through writing this reply, my screen froze, and the word I was trying to type was inexplicably replaced with a wink emoticon.
Anyway, I must be off - the Faraday shielding needs reinforcing and my tinfoil hat won't seem to come off. Cheers, FITO.
