No ... I wasn't suggesting it was a dream !
Far from it !
I was just musing that what we SEE (and we KNOW when we've seen these things) may be the *manifestation* of someone's dream.
Don't think there's much doubt that like it or not .. we're all 'connected'.
I could liken it to a shoal of fish, like those seen on tv.
There could be hundreds .. thousands of them, all swimming together in a cloud of silver.
They turn in a split second ... and they ALL turn in unison.
It looks gorgeous to see.
Then they'll turn in the opposite direction .. again, all at once.
It's instantaneous. They're not 'talking' to each other like a pack of fighter jets.
These are fish ! But they possess the ability to sense or know or communicate *instantaneously*.
They move as one.
They share one mind.
Although there may be thousands of them, they operate as 'one' thing.
Other animals, birds, insects, etc. do the same thing.
Wilderbeast or bison thundering along .. a pack of hundreds of individual animal forms, all moving as one .. all connected .. seemingly 'one
Well, I suspect we're the same. One unit.
But from where we *each* stand on the ground .. we can't SEE that we're one unit.
So we believe we are each of us a separate entity .. we believe we are all 'individual'. We have developed a 'me and them' mentality. Our
individual egos have created the illusion in most of us that we are independent, separated, unique, 'apart from all others'.
However, ESP, telepathy, empathy, precognition, 'sixth sense' etc. are all telling us that our seeming 'separateness' is just an illusion.
You might 'know' or sense that your old schoolfriend, Jimbo (whom you haven't seen or heard from in over five years) is going to call or write you.
Or maybe it's not that specific. Maybe out of nowhere, you'll suddenly think of Jimbo. Might even ask yourself, ' Gee, wonder what Jimbo's
doing these days?'.
Then, a day or week later (or sometimes within half an hour) ... you'll hear from Jimbo. Maybe he just turns up on your doorstep. Or maybe you'll
receive an invitation to his forthcoming wedding, out of the blue. Maybe he phones you and says he's tracked you down via your sister .. says he'll
be in town and would like to catch up. Or ... maybe you get a phone call from Jimbo's family to say he's very ill, or that he'll be buried a week
from tomorrow and would you like to attend.
Whatever the case, the first words out of your mouth when you hear from Jimbo may well be: ' Gee .. I was just thinking about you ! '
Now just about everyone has experienced the above at some point. For some people (I'm one) it's a regular occurrence.
Others dream about things and people ( I do) and within a day or several, what they've dreamed comes to pass. Many people have dreamt of accidents,
disasters, etc. prior to the fact.
Or, you may be sitting at dinner with a group of old friends, and you suddenly get the feeling all is not well with one of them. Or you may be struck
by the seemingly 'wild' idea that Jack and Sarah are splitting up. Soon afterwards, you learn that your 'hunch' was correct. And you might say
to someone: ' I had a feeling Bill was having problems', or ' I had a feeling Jack and Sarah wouldn't be together much longer'. Again, people
experience this sort of thing all the time.
We could cite dozens of examples of the 'connectedness' between us, but you get the idea.
So, basically, we (human race) are like a shoal of those silvery fish .. who've been separated. Separated by ego, most probably. So now we all go
our separate ways and we each think we're 'apart' from everyone else.
But I don't believe we are. I see us as a huge shoal of silvery fish who APPEAR to be separated .. but who are as connected as they ever were, at
mind-level (or whatever you'd like to call it).
If you're still with me .. I'm getting to it, lol.
Ok. You're in tune with everything and everyone, but a lot of the time, your awareness of this is probably buried beneath superficial layers
concerned with surviving, hobbies, relationships, etc.
Now, some people have very powerful visualisation abilities. Graphic artists, writers, painters, photographers, poets, musicians, idiot-savants, for
And SOME people are more intense-obsessive than others. Some are more *imaginative* than others. Luck of the toss. Cards they're dealt. God gives,
and takes away. Others are great at sport, or cooking, or healing, etc.
So it might be a case of Fate 'pairing up' or 'matchmaking'. One one side we have you: in this instance, your unique mind-set may play the role
On the other side, we may have someone who designs avatars for a hobby or living. They have strong/intense powers of visualisation and imagination
and they tend towards the obsessive ... they repeatedly return to a specific theme.
Let's say the hypothetical avatar-designer is obsessing over a design or comic-strip character. He hones his idea relentlessly, long into the night.
Invests enormous amounts of energy into the creature he's invented. He's given it form, colour, character. His mind has made it 'alive' .. to
him, this creature 'exists'. Which is the root of all good art, good ideas .. it 'comes alive' to its creator.
What is it they say: ' Energy goes where attention flows' ? Something like that. Energy equals 'mass', doesn't it ? (obviously science isn't
my strength, but I know what I mean, even if I can't explain it very well).
Alexandra Neel travelled to Tibet and spent several years with the monks. She observed the 'tulpas'. Tulpas are 'creatures' created from the
mind and will of the monks. Usually, they are used to undertake tasks for the monks .. gathering wood, for example. They are entirely a creation of
the mind. Alexandra Neel was fascinated and convinced a monk to teach her how to create a Tulpa. And she did. At first it was obedient to her will.
But then she noticed it was becoming sly and more willful. The monks strongly advised her to 'un-create' her Tulpa. She wrote that it was a long
and difficult task .. because the Tulpa had become progressively stronger .. and it did not want to be reduced to nothingness. So she had a battle of
wills with her Tulpa, but finally succeeded in 'un-doing' it.
So yes, 3D-seeming creatures (and humans) can be 'made out of thin air'. Except it's NOT 'thin air', is it ? We should be researching this a
heck of a lot more.
Anyway, you are obviously a sensitive 'receiver'. Maybe on that occasion, your wide-ranging bandwidth honed in for an instant on something
travelling down the line from, say .. our hypothetical avatar-designer.
At the same time he was creating (Tulpa style) his black-hole, racoon sized creature ..... YOUR mind, refreshed from mysterious sleep .. picked-up
(received) what the avatar-designer was intensely visualising (broadcasting or 'sending'). SNAP ! The broadcaster connected with the receiver.
The Tulpa or black-hole racoon was manifest .. became 'real' ... was stuck half way between its sender and a receiver ! And for that brief moment
in time, the creature *appeared* in your 3d reality !
Maybe .. maybe .. the avatar designer was called to the phone and his attention was diverted. Maybe, he'd 'released' his hold on his imaginary
creature. BUT .. because he'd invested so much *energy* into that creature .. it was able to survive independently of him now. (?) It was OUT
And you ... well, you saw it. And so did your dog. You received the shock of your life and your dog in a way lost its trust in the world it thought
it knew ... and hasn't been the same since.
