Whilst taking note of this thread's subject matter, there does seem to be a similarity being shown by the many posters regarding their concern for
feeling 'ill-at-ease' within themselves. I suppose one could suggest that it is perhaps in the same way that animals are able to sense natural
catastrophes about to occur and flee from the area for safer refuge? Anyway, I want to say that I too have been feeling this way for quite sometime,
and although I consider myself quite average and normal, with no psychic powers or 'hotline' to some divine interventionary, I have to say that
intuitionally (and I do think it is an issue about intuition), I can and do sense a foreboding.
An earlier poster commented on a friend they have whom has dreams carrying elements of precognition...well, I too, have such dreams. Not all the time,
of course, and nor do the prophetic elements of my dreams come true, but only certain aspects. It is like working out a hard mathematical problem,
instead of going through all the steps and seeing how one arrives at the solution, it is more a case of arriving at the solution intuitively first,
and then working backwards to see how one achieved it in the first place. I'm not talking about jumping ahead in time or anything, just a
neurological process that presents the answer to the solution, rather than the steps to follow to arrive at the solution...purely abstract, subjective
Over the last two years, I have had the same dream about 4 times. A simple scene of looking towards some distant horizon and seeing the mushroom cloud
of a nuclear explosion hotly rising towards the heavens. The sense I have in the dream was that of having expected this to occur. It wasn't out of
place, it wasn't a accident, the whole thing felt like a 'reaping what was sown'.
Now, in order to place this into context with other dreams and feelings of foreboding I have had that disappeared once whatever it was that was
causing me to have them had occurred, I want to briefly relate something that happend to me some 11 years ago.
I was introduced to a young fellow whom became a necessary contact and liason as part of my job working with hazardous chemicals. He was a industrial
chemist just out of university, and had been placed into my area, and as I was introduced to him, we both received a electro-static shock as we shook
hands in greeting. To be honest, I (nor he) thought much about it, but over the coming months working with the fellow, I seemed to develop a
particular sense of dread whenever he was around, but kept it to myself until one day, I sensed it so bad that I actually had a mild panic attack, and
had to take myself away from his presence and go outside for a cigarette. I made some excuse about not feeling too well, and went outside. A female
colleague accompanied me, so I took the opportunity to discuss my sense of dread with her, and to see if she felt the same way when she was working
with the young chap...she didn't.
Anyway, for the rest of the day, I tried to keep myself apart from him, but I always had that 'ill-at-ease' feeling, and was, quite frankly, very
happy to finish that day's work and go home. The following morning, I came into work only to be told that the young lad had died the previous evening
from a out-of-the-blue convulsive fit he suffered at home during the evening meal. It was quite a shock to me. He was only 25, recently married and a
child on the way. I also noticed that I no longer felt or sensed that dread feeling, like having a weight taken off one's shoulders, feeling like a
heavy worry had been lifted, although for weeks after, I had a feeling of confusion and bewilderment, but even that evaporated.
The upshot of all this preamble is that I have that sense of dread again, but not from working with a person, but more with what is going on in the
world, as militaries jockey into positions, as politicians grind out their plans and agendas, regardless of whatever consequences might befall us. The
one situation I feel most unease at is that of Kosovo...there feels something intuitively wrong about the events shaping up around the Albanian quest
for independence. I do not have any particular sense of anything regarding Iran, but Kosovo, for some reason, is giving me the 'heebie jeebies', and
I'm watching this situation with keen interest. I have reasoned that it is because this is the one scenario that could eventually bring Russia and
Nato/America into direct conflict, perhaps after an assassination attempt on some high-ranking Albanian politician, or conflict breaking out between
the Albanians and the Serbs. I think the next 'big' event will come at us without staging and without warning, and cascade us all towards the
unthinkable, yet inevitable nuclear exchanges.
Personally, I hope I am totally wrong in my reasoning, and that my 'ill-at-ease' sense of dread dissipates on its own accord. Time...I suppose, will
By the way...I'm not religious, nor do I follow any particular political ideology, I'm just a normal Joe Soap, wanting to live his life as best and
as happy as he can, without hurting or harming anyone else.
