In April 2007, I had a dream of something that looks like the animal depicted in this image:
St. George and Dragon
In the dream, I was standing near a sandy beach and this "thing" was on the beach itself with a small man riding its back. Its face was black, very
black, its skin was scaly, like a fish, and multi-colored, it had a large tail, like a whale and, from my own estimation, it was very powerful. I
stood face to face with the beast for a moment measuring it trying to understand it's nature. In the dream, I remember thinking, "it will take me a
long time to kill this thing." I also remember thinking, "I've seen this thing before, but where??"
Later on in the dream, I was sitting upon a bluff overlooking the beach down below. I was relaxing on a settee, with a highly sexual woman. But I was
still concerned about the animal on the beach. I asked my partner, "what is that thing?" I'd seen it before, but I can't remember where and I
never get a chance to really identify it. She replies, "that's just Pylon", in a manner suggesting it was of no major concern. I think she
considered it her pet. I respond to her, "well if it comes up here, I am going to kill it." I last saw it as it bounded away powerfully, barely
touching the ground and covering a great distance in each stride.
After waking up, I couldn't stop thinking about "Pylon". I asked myself, "is it possible to have dreams about things that do not exist?" I did
searches for unique dogs, as I thought it was a type of Dog and my memories of seeing this thing somewhere included in a Dog encyclopedia. I didn't
About a week later, I started searching variations of the name I heard in the dream. I was obsessed with finding this thing. I figured I heard her
wrong. I checked variations of what I thought I heard and finally found something called a Qilin. As seen here:
The point of this post is to establish an identity for this mystery Beast, does anyone know what it is, where it lives in the creation and what's its
purpose? Both of my images refer to it as a type of Dragon, which is possible. Even though I have seen images of things that are called Dragons, I
don't really know what one would look like.
Another problem this thread can touch on is this search started because of a Dream. This thing must exist at some level of reality. If for no other
reason because the Georgians of the Caucus Mountains and the Ming of China both saw it too and included it in their art, which they then saved for
thousands of years. How would you characterize its, the Qilin, reality in relation to our own.
