Last night, I had a disturbing dream I want to share.

There was massive flooding, around 6 feet high in high parts of the land masses, meaning the lower lying areas were under water and the higher areas (not sure how high, but I'd say 1,500 feet) were flooded with 6 feet or more of water.

The water was definitely salt ocean water. I remember over half of the population was dead or dying. There was no medical care at all. People were turning on each other and people who were once caring individuals, were self-centered and would barely help anyone around them. We ate pre packaged food, the type you would buy at a convenience store that was wrapped differently than what you buy at a market. I don't recall how we drank water.

It seemed as though the floods kept coming. Someone was in a make shift hospital bed and I left for a minute (others were around) and when I came back, the individual was submerged under water and not breathing. I pulled the individual above the water, but I couldn't do CPR as higher ground was 50 yards away. I was making my way through the deep water carrying this individual and it seemed as though there was a spark of life still within him, but I couldn't get the water out of his lungs or do CPR. Nobody would help me.

I kept hearing of family members who died or continued to die and the shock of it was gone, so this event was not necessarily new, maybe a few months at best.

There was a cell phone I tried using and it seemed it was pointless as nobody had coverage.

I think the hardest, scariest thing was nobody was working together to help each other. I was thinking I would prefer to die than live with people filled with hatred and with no survival skills or know-how to help themselves or others.

I woke up during the dream and told myself to remember it as it had a big impact on me. My take away in all of this is to make sure we all have a unique set of survival skills (without electricity, without food in stores) and form communities that helps each other.

I think the most valuable gift we can bestow on our children, whether now young or adults is the ability to survive in this world without the conveniences of the modern world. Aside from having family values, and a belief and appreciation in our Creator (I believe in all religions that support peace and love) is the ability to survive in a world whether technologically advanced or without electricity and other modern conveniences.

Mexico is a great example. I'm in the USA, so Mexico is one of the only examples I have of what is considered a 3rd world nation, yet they work as a strong knit community. There is no public assistance like Welfare, Unemployment, Food Stamps, etc. in Mexico. You are born and you will work, period. They all contribute to their society. If you are an old woman, you make homemade tortillas or something else. If you are a young boy, then after school, you help your fellow towns people.

I've traveled to many parts of Mexico and I know first hand they work together. It's not a society where it's based only on each individual, such as the case in the USA. Example, we were eating tacos at a small, beach taco stand and decided to inquire about a boat taxi. There were many boat taxis, most had a lot of people on them. The owner of the taco stand saw a guy he knows well (they all know each other) and told us the price to go where we wanted and called the guy over. We gave the guy his fare, but the driver of the boat was not him and the guy we paid didn't go. We provided a 30% tip, but the other guy had it. We were concerned for the boat driver. We learned his boat was empty as he was a younger man who was learning how to do this type of business. When the boat ride was over, the guy who stayed behind paid the boat driver. It's everyone helping everyone. From my perspective, this is why the majority fall within the same economic class as they don't hoard earnings, they help each other succeed. This is how community should be.

My take away is this dream left big impact on me that we need to work together as a community and help each other as well as learn a unique skill set so we contribute to that community's survival and success.

This is a prepper's dream to see the shtf "Finally"! Jokes aside, you did point out some important factors of survival without electronics / electricity or food being available easily. Good its only a dream.

If it's any consolation to you, there isn't enough water on the planet to do that. If every glacier and the ice caps melted, the ocean would rise about 70-80 meters (roughly 250 feet) so any piece of land with a higher elevation above sea level would not be flooded (though 250-280 feet land would likely be impacted as well.)

This map shows the areas that would be flooded in that event (red areas are those below the level in question, and bear in mind this is if every bit of ice melted, which is highly unlikely to happen.)

Yeah but unfortunately, solid land is not exactly solid, and your little map, while I appreciate the amount of work that went into creating it, does not and cannot account for how the land will react to extra water weight being shifted into new areas. For example, if the water levels rose worldwide, it could push the land down, and like a mattress, when you push down on one section, the surrounding sections will also move downward. And that downward movement, on the earth, could cause new faults to be created, old ones widened, new mountains can also be created. It would take a good geologist to take a crack at any type of prediction as far as what the effects would be and where. Each continental plate has a very specific relationship with each plate next to it. It's very complicated.

There are also many symbolic explanations for your dream... You, in the midst of a reoccurring flood, trying to save "somebody" (or some "thing" or "idea" or "relationship"), but you can't get any help from anyone, and even your technology failed you...

I often feel that way when trying to save our (planet/species/very humanity). It's very hard to find good help. Or any at all. We are in the flood right now. A flood of ignorance, greed, etc... And there is still something, some remnant of what we once were, that can be saved. But can we do it alone?

Of course, those are just my thoughts. It could be something very personal to you, or could be prophetic, or just a dream. Thank you for sharing!

Well, apparently, more than half the world's population lives mostly coastal. Read this thread! www.abovetopsecret.com...
