Think: Is your life really lived when you are awake or Asleep. You only know what is true when you can consciously be in both all you believes is your
Debb claimed to have seen Tomas in a dream, and even interacted with him! I wonder about the mechanics behind that... So, taking 2109's advice let's
look at that other reality we put ourselves into each night.
I'll paste some snippets here from articles and books, the main concepts of the Dreamtime.
Whites call our ancestors ETS, but they are just our ancestors from the dreamtime, neither is wrong, they come from the spirit place, from the
heavens, and they exist their still, out of our time, our past is our present and our future, we use the same word for soon, as we do for
Curiously, the ancient Egyptians had no word for future or past, they only had the word or Now.
The expression 'Dreamtime' is most often used to refer to the 'time before time', or 'the time of the creation of all things', while 'Dreaming' is
often used to refer to an individual's or group's set of beliefs or spirituality.
As with all other cultures - it speaks of Earth's Creation by Gods and Goddesses - some of whom were kind hearted - while others were cruel.
Everything in the natural world is a symbolic footprint of the metaphysical beings whose actions created our world
What is certain is that 'Ancestor Spirits' came to Earth in human and other forms and the land, the plants and animals were given their form as we
know them today. These Spirits also established relationships between groups and individuals, (whether people or animals) and where they traveled
across the land, or came to a halt, they created rivers, hills, etc., and there are often stories attached to these places.
They believe that every person essentially exists eternally in the Dreaming. This eternal part existed before the life of the individual begins,
and continues to exist when the life of the individual ends. Both before and after life, it is believed that this spirit-child exists in the Dreaming
and is only initiated into life by being born through a mother
Take for example Indigenous Australian culture, which knows two realities, the ordinary physical world and the other world, the dreamtime or
dreaming, which determines what happens in the actual world
So it's like there's another world beyond this one, and what ever happens there affects this world afterwards. This Dreamtime could be the Tir Nan
from Celtic Lore.
I might add, there's alot of UFO stories in aboriginal lore, and they say these beings come out of the dreamtime, and that they are their ancestors,
"Spirits" not aliens.
A few other ideas on time and dreams;
In the Buddhist Svarvastivada school of thought, they say past, present and future all exist now. Sarvasti literally means "all exists". I think they
call this "Eternalism" the "Eternal now".
According to the Hindu's, the god Brahma daydreams this universe into existence, for Brahma its one night, but for us it's 360 million years.
Descartes, says we cannot prove we are not dreaming now
So maybe when we are asleep, we know we are dreaming, and when we are "awake" we are
still dreaming but we don't know it.
