I was jolted out of bed this morning at about 6:45 from a dream. I had gone to sleep only a few hours before at 4AM.
The dream is not the purpose of this thread, although I will mention that with the dream of this morning I have made progress in determining the
where's and why's of this particular dreamscape (see the thread referenced at the bottom if you're interested).
Immediately after getting up, having some water and lighting a cigarette, I turned on the tv to catch the morning headlines on CNN. Just in case...
Nothing unusual in the sense that most everything on the news of late is unusual. But no nuclear bombs going off, no alien invasions or global zombie
So, now with only half my attention turned to the news I began to piece together my dream. Then...
The news on CNN turns toward Obama and his decision back in 2009 to send 20,000 more troops to Afghanistan. The story continues. My attention is still
not focused until I hear this:
The speech he gave lasted 33 minutes. Furthermore it was given in Eisenhower Hall at West Point. On December 2nd, 2009.
Now the significance of why I was jolted out of bed started to bubble in my mind. Not only had my intentions of late to discover the meaning of my
"alternate universe" dreamscape been fullfilled, but I was awakened at just the right time to catch this story.
Here's why I think it's important.
1. A 33 minute speech (see Scottish Rite of Freemasonry link below)
2. Given in Eisenhower Hall of all places (see Eisenhowere's Military Industrial Complex Speech link below)
3. And the irony in that the purpose of the speech Obama was to tell us he had decided to send more troops to Afghanistan.
4. On December 2nd. The 336th day of the year. "(33)6". Interestingly enough, December 2 1851 was also the date of the "The French coup
d'état on 2 December, 1851, staged by Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte"... in which he ..."[became] dictator before ascending the throne as Napoleon III
on 2 December 1852, the forty-eighth anniversary of Napoleon I's coronation.
Now this may not really seem like much to some of you, but I felt compelled to write this up as soon as possible and post it before I could lose my
train of thought on the matter.
They say... "Everything happens for a reason. There are no coincidences." Perhaps I was just let in on something through the timing of my sudden
awakening and the news story I just "happened" to see on the tv this morning. When I would normally have been sound asleep. Oblivious... dreaming.
Any thoughts on this?
I think it's somehow important. Or at least strange in the sense that someone or something is saying "HEY!! YOU! GET UP AND TAKE A LOOK AT THIS! AND
TELL OTHER PEOPLE. YOU DON'T NEED TO FULLY UNDERSTAND IT, BUT PUT ASIDE YOUR FEAR OF RIDICULE AND SAY SOMETHING..."
