**Mysterious Dream-Share Manual Is a Viral Mind-Wipe: (something new?)

It arrived mysteriously — weathered, beaten and stamped “classified.” But after thumbing through its dirty and heavily redacted pages, it’s clear that the Dream-Share: Tactical Employment Procedures manual is a puzzling mind-wipe



The clues arrive in seven choppy chapters with graphic illustrations and loads of black ink: “Specialists/Operatives,” “Environment Creation,” “The Dream/Waking World Relationship,” “The Hostile Subconscious,” “Warfare in the Dream” and “Interrogation Techniques.”

The technical manual connects concretely to the real world in the clever cryptonym of its final chapter, “PASIV Device Instructions.” That section’s rough illustration presents a well-dressed agent carrying a suspicious briefcase, as well as an online address where readers can download a copy of the PASIV Device Technical Manual. What a head trip.




The manual’s first chapter, “Specialists/Operatives,”

seems a mostly straightforward affair. Although thick black boxes blot out whatever textual direction existed before the Dream-Share’s censors got hold of it, the illustrations present a diverse crew of possible agents: a soldier, an architect and what looks like a very cautious chemist.



The second chapter, “Environment Creation,”

is a bit more confusing, with its series of settings, some crossed out in the manual’s nearly ubiquitous black. One is a natural outdoor labyrinth, which looks like a less-snowy version of the one that led ax-wielding maniac Jack Torrance to his icy death in Stanley Kubrick’s horror classic The Shining. Another is a crude rendering of a metropolitan cityscape.



The third chapter, “The Dream/Waking World Relationship,”

is a bit more direct, ironically enough, in its conjoined imagery. A man is roughly slapped while asleep in one illustration, while what looks like a different man tumbles across a crowded room in another. Some whitecoat dumps water on a sleeping man’s head, while his victim imagines a tidal wave in a companion picture. A different man is suffocated in his sleep, while his double suffers some kind of pain in a corresponding image.



The next chapter, “The Hostile Subconscious,”

seems to have crawled out of the minds of Sigmund Freud and E.T.A. Hoffmann. A man peers at his watch, while another peers at him. A torch-and-pitchfork mob amasses near a dark castle. A crowd breaks down a door to an office, as its inhabitant slips through another.

SO it goes from there into the other topic areas noted in the beginning. I personally don't think there is much to this. Looks almost like a cheap copy of MK Ultra programs. The pictures look odd-from the day of manuals I use to look at, maybe things have changed. But hey, I could be wrong. Maybe there is an ATS member that has actual knowledge of this? Won't know unless we ask, right?

Also, the blackouting of the info. Why not just destroy the dam manual instead of leaving any evidence behind. Also, it just looks like it was poorly done. Most redactions I have seen-they looked better.

So, I toss it into the mix for any experts to opine or just us layman knowledge seekers. Thoughts/Comments?

Be sure to check out the whole article for all the info.

Doing some additional checking I discovered this: Latest Inception Viral Marketing Item Is a Dream-Share Manual: www.reelzchannel.com...

It appears this is some type of movie marketing idea, or they took the movie idea from this thing. I supect the marketing idea.

Interesting concept and now, I want to see the movie. lol

It is interesting because I fully support the fact that:

1.) We can indeed share dreams. There is an objective potential in that state, see: "Mutual Dreaming", Lynda Magelleon or "Lucid Dreaming: The Gateway to the Inner Self", Robert Waggoner.

2.) There is a dream / reality relationship. My sig is full of sources on ATS related to precognitive dreaming etc. Where what you dream, happens some day later.

I'd love to read this book!

If it's a viral marketing tool for a movie, I'd love to see the movie!

Well, it you think it is interesting. I was going to Alert it to the Mods to shut down. But, i see what you are saying-it is interesting.

I just don't want to be seen as the promoter of it. I actually thought it maybe a real military project
( It's been a long week and I am ready for the weekend.

I've already been looking into it, and even if it is a marketing game, the implications hint at things that may exist in the paranormal branch of military research.

From my personal experience, I have shared dreams with several people in the past. Some so detailed and vividly remembered that each of us in the dream were able to describe in detail one part of the dream, where the other picked up and described the rest.

I've been at work when 3 girls casually started to talk about a dream that involved them and as they talked started to confirm details and come to the realization that they all had the exact same dream.

My friend told me about a dream that he and his mother and sister all shared and was recalled during breakfast in the morning, to the point where his mother was so frightened at this she went back to bed.

The US military has invested millions of dollars into Remote Viewing and who knows what else they are "aware" of. There are people writing books about having shared dreams, I cite just two that you can reference. I have all the evidence I need to "know" not believe it's real.

The dream / reality relationship is also very known to me.

All of this would have implications if militarized. And the military is good at militarizing anything, keeping secrets about it and spreading dis-info to protect those secrets.

I can see how this "dream stuff" if taken seriously could be an issue of "National Security", and who knows... maybe it had been.
