I just ignored them at that point in the dream and turned to face the sun.edit on 14-4-2013 by NotAConsumer because: (no reason given)
Each STEREO probe photographs half of the star and beams the images to Earth. Researchers combine the two views to create a sphere. These aren't just regular pictures, however. STEREO's telescopes are tuned to four wavelengths of extreme ultraviolet radiation selected to trace key aspects of solar activity such as flares, tsunamis and magnetic filaments. Nothing escapes their attention.
NASA has been building toward this moment since Oct. 2006 when the STEREO probes left Earth, split up, and headed for positions on opposite sides of the sun (movie). Feb. 6, 2011, was the date of "opposition"—i.e., when STEREO-A and -B were 180 degrees apart, each looking down on a different hemisphere. NASA's Earth-orbiting Solar Dynamics Observatory is also monitoring the sun 24/7. Working together, the STEREO-SDO fleet should be able to image the entire globe for the next 8 years.

Well, I guess the same thing will apply to you then.
No amount of wisdom or ancient knowledge or personal anecdotes will change your mind about dreams not meaning anything.
And heck, maybe yours don't.
But nothing in this life is meaningless.
So why would the reality where we spend 1/3rd of our lifetime be 'meaningless?'
I think nature has a better design than that.

If something is hiding behind the sun, then it must be playing hide and seek with the millions of astronomers that are watching the sky 24/7
also since the Earth orbits the sun that means that at some point this year we'll be "behind" the sun
Kaiser is the project scientist for NASA's Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) mission, which in 2006 sent two golf-cart-size satellites into orbit around the sun to study the explosions on the solar surface that are a major factor in space weather. A few months after their launch, the two probes were angled such that they could see beyond the sun, but they found no planets lurking behind the big star.
