I have no idea where else to place this thread, or ask this question... So if there is a more appropriate place for this thread, feel free to move it
So.... last night, I had this amazing dream, in which I actually awoke 3 times during it, only to come back to the dream every time. I remember it in
fantastic detail, and will describe it later, if or when necessary.
There is one thing I am having trouble with, and that is understanding of what a carving into a stone at the base of building depicting a Frog wearing
a small hat, playing the flute, might represent.
I'm not sure if it is at all connected, but before sleeping I was researching Apollonian and Dionysian literary concepts and relation to the new
testament in preparing for a thread that I may be posting at a later date.
What does Apollonian and Dionysian have to do with frogs?
The Frogs (Ancient Greek: Βάτραχοι Bátrachoi, "Frogs") is a comedy written by the Ancient Greek playwright Aristophanes. It was performed
at the Lenaia, one of the Festivals of Dionysus, in 405 BC, and received first place
It's kinda hard to explain the plausible correlations between the topics in which I researched last night, and how they may have lead to my dreams,
so excuse the ramblings.
I just want to know what the frog and the flute means! It's even more important to me, because at the time of the dream in which I had scene this
carving in stone at the base of a building(which is a large part of the dream), was also flashes of other images, especially those of geometric shapes
transposed over other images of people, places and things. By flashing, I mean, like on a real of movie film and each frame was a different image.
BTW during my research last night, I loosely read about the Festival of Dionysus, and have to memory of seeing anything relating to The Frogs, so I
have absolutely no idea where it may have came from. The only link I can think of was reading about Nietzsche's "The Birth of Tragedy" and the plot
for The Frogs
story of the god Dionysus, despairing of the state of Athens' tragedians, and allegedly recovering from the disastrous Battle of Arginusae
please don't over think this, as I have obviously done, just try and suggest what the frog and the flute means LOL!
Thank you in advance.
