Are Dreams Just Symbolic? Learned men, of significant stature, assure us that our dreams are nothing more than symbolic and expressive venting of our emotional life experience! I have trouble with this concept; because I believe in Dragons. Maybe you should too!
Lucid Dreams Prove Symbolism? In “The Source Field Investigations“, David Wilcock offers carefully explained concepts taken from Dr Stephen LaBerge’s dream research. LaBerge teaches us how we can transform our routine dream experience to Lucid Dreams and in so doing, take control of their outcome. In the process, he explains, the symbolism of your dream experience may become more manifest. He describes this in an example of the ogre, who is about to beat you to death, being transformed by your spiritual love, into a flash of light that melts into your own body and vanishes. Now, LaBerge says, you know the ogre was a dream projection of a part of yourself, that you had yet to forgive and accept, nothing more. We are then told, that researchers who study dreaming find strong agreement in the symbols and the symbolic nature of dream experiences. This is an elegant integration of psychology and dreaming for those who need fairy tales; but, again I must say that I believe in dragons! In his book, “Supernatural: Meetings with the Ancient Teachers of Mankind,” Graham Hancock explores both his own personal journey and years of study by many researchers. In this story, Hancock, finds that symbolism crosses cultures, religions, time and space to bare witness to an alternative plain of existence, rather than a common archetypal symbolism as portrayed by Carl Jung. In my book, “Not Kid’s Games,” I explore the consequences of the infinite paths of an infinite universe. If you have yet to read my “Science fiction” book, Not Kids Games, than for just a moment, fill your mind with its foundational research, slip into the path of its comet like ride and see the universe from another perspective!
The Consequences Of Thought. Think for a moment, outside the box with me, and envision a world that is not just holographic but built of infinite infinities, then lets look at the consequences and we will find where my dragons live!
- In a holographic universe, every point has all the knowledge of every other point; but, like a Jpeg image, it begins to fade and lose detail as it is compressed smaller and smaller. So here in our tiny bodies (Jpegs) we clearly experience the world of our own local ongoing creation but only vaguely sense being part of the infinite consensual universe. This gives us a laser like focus on our “unique” journey in our special reality and yet a feeling for our ultimate origin and destination in death.
- Now lets consider Nassim Haramein’s concept of infinites bounded by finite space. If you understand, much as Nassim Haramein teaches, that an infinity can be found in a finite space, you will realize that there is not one universe but surely a multi-verse (which to me means an infinite number of universes of infinitely large or small size). Wow! That is a lot to ponder but its consequences are worth trying! Trust me on this and I will elaborate as we go on. For now just think of infinite universes by picturing each universe as grain of sand, when seen from afar. Now in your mind’s eye toss that infinite sand into infinite space. Remember the concept of a Galaxy contained in a Jewel such as that on the “belt” worn by the cat, Orion, in the movie Men In Black?
- Spinoza. Add one more ingredient to our stewing thoughts and we will complete the recipe for a land where Dragons may be as real as you and I (for whatever that means). Recall how Spinoza explained the Ultimate Substance (cosmic consciousness) as containing everything in order for it to be God Like and therefore omniscient as well as omnipotent? If this is true then every thought, every dream, every picture in your mind, in all its infinite variations, must truly exist, for without it, the cosmic is not omnipotent nor is it omniscient. Another way of understanding this is to consider what you see when you stand between two parallel mirrored walls. As you gaze into the “unending” fractal like image of yourself and anything else in that space, the endlessly repeating images may seem to curve away and morph just slightly as they flow beyond our viewpoint. Every object in the universe, every event in time, must have a nearly perfect duplicate with some small variation, or else the universe we live in is not infinite.

My dragons are hungry, as it is early morning in Narangia. I can hear them beating their leathery wings against the bronze bars that form the gates to their stables. It is located just before the bridge in front of our castle. They know this will get my attention and I will come and feed them. Then I will take one chosen one, as is my habit, for a flight high over our city walls.
Now that you have eaten my my mind-filling stew, rich in esoterics , what happens when you dream of the Ogre? You recall, the Ogre with the steel like death grip around your neck, who is about to beat you to death? When you now express infinite love for all living beings and beam that from your eyes to his soul, he again melts into your being and all is well; but, it no longer means that he is a small mundane projection of you, that you are dealing with on Freud’s Couch. Now instead it is your real experience in one of the infinite universes. An experience in which the flash of light is your death from his wrecking ball like fist and the merging is now your return to the cosmic. In the cosmic you find awareness of your true self, your infinite nature no longer compressed to a Jpeg of human existence. For the moment, you are dead physically but alive spiritually.
It may be true that the objects in your dream were experienced because of your mental state, created my external or internal frustration (stimuli). They are easily labeled “symbolic.” On the other hand, your mind may have tuned into the infinite experience that the universe (cosmic consciousness) knows! Though it can be symbolic to you, it is as real somewhere in the universe as is your awakening in a sweat, with ice cold skin and an ache in your stomach. When you are half awake in your miserable state of sleep crying, “no more, no more” it is because you are tired of death and re-birth to a new world with hidden pain as well as some pleasure. For a moment you recall that, like the fractal image above, you are born over and over, a small probe launched into the cloud of reality to bring back knowledge of one variation on experience. As you bask in the all knowing light of the Cosmic, for a moment, before you consciousness re-compresses to a Jpeg, you understand the dream of infinity! You know there is dark and there is light, there is cold and there is hot, there is infinitely big and infinitely small.
The universe (reality) is, as Nassim Haramein says, perhaps being created and destroyed by a toroidal rotating field of energy, a 3-D version of the flat oscilloscope image. From the infinitely large, your true self for a timeless instant, you are now again compressing to an infinitely small dot of Jpeg consciousness in the endless storm of the sea of life’s adventure. Every symbol in the dream of life or the dream of sleep, is an attunement of your mind adjusted to the symbols vibrational frequency like an FM radio. As you tune into each “station,” the meaning of its story is best gathered by your experience, in which you feel the pain or joy of its alternate reality. If it was a ‘bad” dream, and you cry “no more pain, no more pain” it is up to you to change the channel.
Something to think about.
