I am going to assume this is 100% dream..mostly to quell my twitchy skeptic brow long enough to discuss it.
I used to record dreams. I found them fascinating, insightful, etc.
I once had a dream of myself being beheaded..it reminded me of a different life. I think I was roman (I suspect the dream was from seeing Caligula as
a youngster, but nevermind that). Anyhow, it was me and several others being beheaded, but not in any human type way..strange object, but that's
beside the point also.
Anyhow, right before my head got lopped off, I realized I was in a dream, that didn't save me from dream death though, and yep, head popped off like
I was then In a void as you describe..nothing, darkness, just me and my mind in a vast and seemingly infinite sea of nothing.
After awhile of considering this...I realized I could consider it to begin with..that somehow I didn't just black out into nothingness, but rather
something of me was still in tact, and with that realization, I then decided to leave the void.
Then a sort of light appeared, grew very bright, and then found myself in what can only be described as..hmm...I don't want to say heaven (because
there wasn't a bunch of scantly clad women meeting me), but rather...some familiar beautiful place. There were many others there..it was like a city,
good feeling, bright beautiful place, some friends I knew, yet never met in life, came up to me and we discussed about the life that just happened and
had a laugh about it.
Anyhow, I woke up shortly after going into the erm...afterparty of life (Again, I don't want to say heaven because there was no religious feeling
there, but there was a certain divinity.
I see it as a awesome dream I had, scary at first, the void wasn't that bad when you realize the void is basically you coming together as it were,
and that's all really.
If there is something more to that dream (doubtful), then I would say this void is a cloak you put on yourself and can emerge once you stop being
scared of the surroundings and start being happy that you continue on to begin with...maybe the cloak (of death) only surrounds you while in
But, my overall assumption is that it was simply a dream, and I try not to put too much consideration into it. If I experienced something real, well,
one day I will see it..no need to dwell too much on what will come in its own time.
Here is something though, do you feel you deserved to be stuck in a void?
