Greetings, fellow ATSers....
My question to you posters out there is, how many of you have had nuclear dreams, and what exactly happened in the dream. Also feel free to share any
other dreams that you deem pertinent to the discussion.
Thanks, I hope to hear from you, because I don't want to be the only looney who has these crazy, scary dreams!
I've had at least a couple of "end-of-the-world" dreams. One had to do with the nuking of an American city. I posted on this not that long ago, but
I can't remember which thread it was on.
Just recently I re-read "The Book of the Hopi" (published in 1963) compiled by an anthropologist from UCLA.
In it, the Hopi Elders made the prediction that the US would be destroyed by nukes from a country "where the Light was first seen" -- i.e. the
Mid-east, Pakistan, India, or China.
What struck me as significant in this prediction (made in the late 1950's to early 1960's timeframe), was the fact that Russian or the Soviet Union
is NOT mentioned. At that time, the Soviet Union was considered our most dangerous enemy.
I had my nuke dream a few months after 9/11 -- this was during the first half of 2002. I can't really remember what lead up to it in my dream.
I remember being outside on unfamiliar terrain. It was a flat, dry yellow plain with huge boulders on it, there were barren mountains behind me and I
had the sense that the mountain had caves in it. Somehow I knew that an American city had been nuked. What was memorable about this very short dream
was the PROFOUND sense of despair and hopelessness I felt. It was a horrible feeling of futility, waste, and that there was no point in going on.
The second dream was full of color & activity. We, the people, had been told that the end was near. There were not enough shelters for all the people.
I saw young couples with small children fighting to get into the shelters.
I was walking thru the streets of a small town -- people were quiet and resigned. They knew it was pointless to protest. I made it to the beach and
sat down on a bench that faced the sea. I could hear music & merrymakers behind me in a trattoria. They were drinking & dancing as if they did not
In the distance, I could see pine trees on a piece of land that jutted out into the sea. I marvelled at how beautiful this world was and how sad it
was that it was all about to be destroyed.
I sat alone on the bench facing the sea and watched the sun sink into the water. End of dream.
