For the record, this is the first time I have ever dreamed of food growing out of my body.
Has anyone else ever had a dream like this?
Mmm. Interesting you should ask. Interesting dream, too. It immediately struck a chord with me. It was familiar.
Yes, I've had a dream like it, very much like it. To the point I could 'feel' the stuff growing out of me, in the same way you can 'feel' your
fingers, hands, etc. are part of you, even though they may be lying limp. With me it was the chest region too. Ages ago. But as soon as I read your
post, I got the 'feeling' back of having the vegetation things growing out of me.
It's weird but fascinating, isn't it ? Do you find your mind keeps returning to it ? Even though it creeps you out, it's sort of addictive .. or
at least you might find that as time goes on.
Another one of mine is seed type formations ... clumps of them, similar to the inside of a pumpkin. I cut a pumpkin in half last week and as I
started to scoop the seeds out, they all fell out in a clump. They were all aligned the same direction for some reason, lying on the cutting board.
It was the way they lay there, hundreds of them, uniform, connected. Almost made me gag.
Don't know what's going on. The 'seed' thing has been happening more frequently lately. It's connected in my mind with 'growths'. That's
all I know at present. And it's simultaneously gross and repellent, yet somehow it 'draws' me .. fascinates me.
After heavy rains a few months ago, I noticed something out of place in the very neat, raised garden beds. Pointed it out to other family members.
When the rain stopped, we went to investigate. Discovered a large patch of hideous fungi. Brown, 'brain' looking stuff, with corrugations.
Everyone said 'Yuk'. Bravest one got a shovel to remove it. Came away in chunks. Absolutely revolting. Sounds stupid, but it was sort of
alarming to find this stuff had grown so large in our own garden. Probably completely ordinary event. But it was the 'look' of it that disturbed.
Again, a weird sort of 'familiar' feeling.
I've been getting that feeling from odd things, such as the seed-mass from inside Rockmelon (think they're called papaya in US). It's the
uniformity of the seeds and they way they're in a mass. Sort of similar to bees when they completely cover bee-keepers for tv shows. They're alive
.. they're all the same .. and they 'all over' someone -- seething, crawling.
It's only recently that I've begun to notice my own reaction to these ordinary events. For example, was watching a cookery programme on tv the
other night. The compere was on a boat with a local fisherman, to gather oysters. The oyster 'farm' was near the Mediterranean and the locals
lowered ropes or wires, then pulled them up again after about a year to harvest the oysters which had attached to the wires. As the fisherman pulled
up the wires, there were thousands of oysters, all attached to each other. Interspersed were sponge-type growths. It had the same effect on me as
the fungi and the vegetable seeds. And now I think of it ... fungi, oysters, seeds -- they're all uniform -- many identical units forming a whole
--- and parasitic, at least in the case of the fungi and oysters.
The vegetation growing out of the chest is the same .. uniformity amongst the parasitic organism. And it's that part which revolts yet fascinates.
Because these things, whether brocolli as in your case, or oysters or fungi .. they're alive. And they live on / in a host.
When I had the vegetation thing growing out of me in the dream or whatever, I remember being embarrassed .. didn't want others to see it. Like you,
I was trying to get it off me. But even though the tops could be removed, the 'roots' remain, growing in you.
I'm wondering now if some people are receiving 'early warning' about a parasitic growth type 'plague' that will be foisted on populations in the
future. I'm thinking now of Morgellans and how sufferers have 'things' living in them which are resistant to removal.
Here's something else creepy and along the same lines. Years ago, we met a woman who became a family friend. She told us that when her son was
younger, he contracted a disease from a water bubbler at school. Don't know if you have them in the US --- they're basically water fountains for
drinking from. Press down a lever, and water bubbles up from usually a rounded stainless steel knob in the middle of a bowl. They used to have them
in most schools years ago. Don't know if they still do.
Anyway, our friend's son became very ill. At the time, no-one realised he'd caught a disease from the water-bubbler. He had soaringly high
temperature, hallucinations, etc. etc. They put him in a local hospital but when he didn't improve, they sent him to a city hospital. His condition
worsened to the point the priest was sent for, apparently. His mother told us that the entire inside of his mouth and down his throat as far as you
could see ... was white, hairy fungus. It gets worse. The fungus was quite thick. And it came off in chunks. This is a little kid of about eight.
He had to have assisted breathing, etc. None of the antibiotics the doctors administered had the slightest effect.
Then, by an unbelievable stroke of Fate, a visiting specialist learned of the situation. Apparently, the specialist was on a four day fly-over on his
way to Japan or somewhere. He was from the US and his specialisation was tropical-diseases. After examining the boy, he said the disease was called
Angelitis. He said he hadn't seen any cases for decades. He cured the boy. Then began the investigation to discover how the boy had contracted the
disease. The only known cases of Angelitis known to have occurred in this country were US servicemen who'd been in Australia in WW2. Yet the boy
lived 100 kilometres from where the US soldiers had been billeted.
Finally, after examining everything in the boy's home and school, they investigated the water-bubbler in the schoolyard. And in minute crack in the
bubbler, they discovered where the Angelitis had come from.
It seems that US servicemen on leave must have travelled to the town where the boy's school was located (a beachside tourist area) and one or more of
those US servicemen must have been infected with Angelitis and must have drunk from the bubbler. In other words, the germ had remained deep in the
bubbler for approx. 50 years and .. who knows .. must have broken free after all that time, and infected this one boy. No-one else at the school had
caught the disease.
But it's the disease itself which is horrifying ... white hairy fungus/fungi which grows and covers the entire inside of the sufferer's mouth,
tongue, throat .. and comes off in CHUNKS, only to regrow again very quickly. Nightmare time.
Wow .. what a weird post
