... as far as the article, .. pretty good, ... I thought it was written by a serious person at first......
Yeah, I enjoy The Onion
. [The site that article came from] Considering how crazy the so called,
"real news" has become, I find it refreshing to get a good laugh now and then and enjoy some good creative writing. They've even got their own
video news cast
on line. What's amazing is the production quality is
on par with any cable news network; which makes it all the more believable. ...Good stuff.
...but I digress.
As far as the OP is concerned, while not exactly the same thing, I do recall [not too long ago] a very real feeling dream where I unintentionally shot
and killed someone I loved very much.
Not only did I manage to kill them, but when others had momentarily left the room to go for help, the deceased sat up, looked at me and said
everything would be OK and then laid back down. A great feeling of relief came over me as I was now convinced they were only sleeping.
When the other person returned to the room, I tried to explain the person on the floor was only sleeping. Strangely the other person gazed at me with
a look of shock, dismay and disbelief, and exclaimed, "then why are you covered in their blood?"!
The odd part was, I recall seeing only a small pinhole with the littlest amount of blood on the body and none on me. I then began trying vigorously to
wake the lifeless body. At that moment I realized not only had I killed them, but that I had also lost my mind because I could not see the blood
covering either of us.
In that instant I remember thinking to myself with great horror, that my life as I knew it was over. It was a very bizarre, uneasy, and very real
feeling. I screamed out, "GOD NO!" All I could think of, at that moment, was I did not want to be there. Suddenly, I awoke in my bed to great
It was the oddest of feelings that stuck with me throughout the morning. It was so powerful, that I even felt compelled to share the dream with
someone else that morning.
Now following the hypotheses of multiple realities and dimensions, I've occasionally pondered whether or not dreams may be a way of "tuning" into
and witnessing another reality like watching a movie or tuning into a channel on TV. If that were indeed the case, then perhaps what I experienced was
real in another reality and I too jumped to another dimension as a result?
I must admit it gives me a bit of an uneasy feeling to consider this, which begs the question, if it is indeed possible to "jump dimensions" under
such circumstances, do we truly get a reset or do we carry the "sins" of our past actions with us?
...For now, I'm just going to stick with the whole, "it was a dream" thing.
