Hey there ATS!
This is my very first thread so I hope it's something that may be of interest to a few of you out there!
About one year ago I had a very clear and brilliantly strange dream. Now I'm no writer, but I'll do my best to paint the picture for you guys!
It began with me standing alone on a dark side street in England. There was no reason for me to believe I was in England, I just knew that's where I
was. As I looked up and around, everything seemed to start gaining colour and light! The stars, shining with astonishing beauty, like I have only ever
seen in photographs. The street lights glowing with a warm, peaceful luminosity. Dark, human shaped figures began to break away from the blackness
still looming around me. We all walked towards the end of the street as the rising volume of the lights and colours burst into pure existence,
breathing life into a thriving market square.
Now rooted to the ground I am forced to observe, restricted from exploring my surroundings. I start to become more aware of the setting. A man-made
web of glass and steel surrounds me. I seem to be standing in an open city center. There is no sound other than that of a gentle breeze carrying the
distant conversations of people rushing around. I slowly feel the need to look to the sky, directly above me.
At first I didn't notice anything strange. However, shortly and quite bizarrely one of the stars dislodged and began to dance around, almost playing
with the stars beside it. Like an insect to a light. After a few seconds I noticed it was growing in size. Getting closer and closer, becoming calmer
as it approached, as if it had spotted us and was now locked on. At this point those around me were standing, watching, pointing.
Finally it reached a point where it was, I'd say around half the distance of the Moon, but also twice the size of it. This is where it gets rather
strange.. The object looked like exactly like the Moon, minus all the craters. In their place though, I could make out the shape of what appeared to
be Europe. That's when I realized it was an exact reflection of our own planet. Colourless and very ghostly it just waited there, glaring down at
A few seconds passed and it started shrinking. Naturally my first thought was that it was leaving again. But weirdly it wasn't, it was actually
getting closer to me and shrinking.. I remember standing there, totally peacefully and kinda happy as it floated freely to within a meter of my face.
This tiny planet was now the size of a tennis ball. I remember smiling! It hovered around me for a while and then just froze about arms length
directly above. I now did what I think most people in that situation would, I reached up towards it. The closer I got the Brighter it shone. Brighter
and brighter until suddenly, silently, it exploded.
As this happened all the pieces rained down on the now motionless market. They were little glass balls, all about the size of a golf ball. They began
to bounce and roll around, people picking them up and putting them swiftly into their pockets. I managed to grab three. The first two I caught I held
in each hand and looked at them. The one in my left hand had suspended inside it a long thin section of land, with Chile engraved on the ball. The one
in my right hand, Spain. I put them in my pocket and started running around with everyone else trying to get another. I found the third in a small
burnt out bush, but never even looked to see what it was. Just put it straight in my pocket and then woke up..
That's it, there are a few other small details but it was a year ago.. I fear if I do try to explain them I will end up exaggerating and straying
from the story, so best not to haha! Anything I remember I'll add later.
Thanks for reading, any ideas as to what you think it means would be great! So please share your opinions!
