Normally I don't remember my dreams at all-and if I do they are so non-sensical and mish-mashed they don't make any sense. But last night I had the most bizarre dream I have had in a King's Age (as they say-or used to anyway). I wonder if anyone could help me interpret this.
In the dream I was in a large group of people who were running (and screaming)from something. At first I had the sense that I was trying to see what the hell it was-but I kept on getting carried along in the flow of people. A bit later I got a look at what it was that was chasing us.
And what else would it be but a giant radio atenna (sarcasm/wtf!).
It was stooping down and picking up those unfortunate to get caught with its two 'hands'-then it used its 'hands' to place the victims on the 'middle pillar' or head if you will-to electrocute them and then tossed them aside!
My reaction at this point was to break down in hysterical laughter and I started saying "This is what we are running from!?" I said this to a really hunky, great-looking dude dressed like a Biblical prophet. He kept trying to tell me "WE'VE GOTTA KEEP GOING! DONT STOP NOW OR YOU WILL SURELY DIE!" And when he said this I just broke down into more hysterical laughter. Unfortunately-or fortunately rather??!! the dream ended here with me on the ground rolling in hysterics, apparently not at all impressed with our antenna-like pursuer-even though I had seen it electrocute people in the dream! I definitely had the feeling I had been laughing out-loud while I was dreaming and the right side of my body even hurt a bit upon waking up.
OK-Here is where things get strangerer! This antenna-tower in my dream had a very unique appearance. In fact-I was 'sure' it wouldn't be something even remotely in 'reality.' But when I got up today, I thought what the hell? I thought of doing web searches like "odd looking antenna towers" etc. I had just begun to search and I got a call from a friend. I explained the dream to him and what the three-pronged pursuer looked like. He said, "Thats a bizarre dream-but it almost sounds like the Mt.Sutro antenna you are talking about." He further explained that this is a famous San Francisco landmark and well-known. He visits San Francisco on "business" a lot.
Well I looked up the Mt Sutro Tower and what do ya know? That was the one from my dream! I could 'swear' on a stack of Bibles or something -anything that I had never seen this tower in my life until the dream. But who knows? Our brains work in weird ways-it just doesnt seem like something I would have forgotten. And what of the odd synch (perhaps) of getting a call from the one and only person I know who would know about the tower the very next day? I have never been to San Francisco.
The three-pronged atructure of the tower reminds me a lot of a Trident for some reason. I am trying to put a link in and it isn't letting me-AARRGH! I will come back in a bit and try again and add any more thoughts. Here is what San Francisco writer Herb Caen said about the tower which had a rough and unwelcome debut in the city: "I keep waiting for it to stalk down the hill and attack the Golden Gate Bridge." LOL! -it says my link is in-why isnt it publishing? Sutro Press Coverage

Robert Anton Wilson: "In researching occult conspiracies, one eventually faces a crossroad of mythic proportions (called Chapel Perilous in the trade). You come out the other side either stone paranoid or an agnostic; there is no third way. I came out agnostic.
Chapel Perilous, like the mysterious entity called "I": cannot be located in the space-time continuum; it is weightless, odorless, tasteless and undetectable by ordinary instruments. Indeed, like the Ego, it is even possible to deny that it is there. And yet, even more like the Ego, once you are inside it, there doesn't seem to be any way to ever get out again, until you suddenly discover that it has been brought into existence by thought and does not exist outside thought. Everything you fear is waiting with slavering jaws in Chapel Perilous, but if you are armed with the Wand of Intuition, the Cup of Sympathy, the Sword of Reason, and the Pentacle of Valor, you will find there (the legends say) the Medicine of Metals, the Elixir of Life, the Philosopher's Stone, True Wisdom and Perfect Happiness.
That's what the legends always say, and the language of myth is poetically precise. For instance, if you go into that realm without the Sword of Reason, you will lose your mind, but at the same time, if you take only the Sword of Reason without the Cup of Sympathy, you will lose your heart. Even more remarkably, if you approach without the Wand of Intuition, you can stand at the door for decades never realizing you have arrived. You might think you are just looking for a bus, or wandering from room to room looking for your cigarettes, watching a TV show, or reading a cryptic and ambiguous book. Chapel Perilous is tricky that way."

Taking a small break from my so-called Encyclopedia project, I wanted to post a 'revelation' that came to me unbidden this evening while I was searching for more Bank of Credit and Commerce International stuff (among other juicy topics). BTW-I had no idea 2011 was the Chinese New Year (Lunar) of the Rabbit beginning 3 February 2011. Perhaps this is the year ALL of us go down the rabbit hole! First, let me post just a very small bit from Michael Grossinger's Waiting for the Martian Express from an essay he worked on way back in 1973-1975, called Third World Wipeout on page 45: "We live still in a Roman world. We retain, in archetype and urban structure, if not in coins and petroglyphs, the kin ties of Neolithic tribes, whose hierarchies bound the world in an equality no system has since restored. The proletariat is a joke beside the billions of acres of independent gatherers and smalltime farmers of the prior Earth. And our cities are now like cartoons amid the permafrost and coal-beds, the termitaries and wild birds. We are the last and most costumed guests at the Roman party. But we act like the saviors of mankind.
God knows, it is not our call to arms that exonerates us in the ledgers of a Third World creation myth; it is how humanely we do the number of being us while they do the number of being them. The liberals are still benighted enough to think we can help them by the positive power of our beliefs, or even our preference to be them, even our preference to help them before we help us. They know better. They simply want our cars and houses and mass-produced gadgets, our supermarkets and nightclubs. They don't want our piety or after dinner globalism.
Because we do not know enough. Because we will never know enough. And our attempts to seal this period of history with the same finality with which we have pretended to seal the Franks and the Huns are little more than big-city bravado. We lie in oblivion and whether what will cover us is Chinese or not will not matter. We sit in a hollow grandstand, and when it disappears it will take with it not just the mask of the falling metropolis but the shadows of our narcissistic gods.
We don't want it.
If we wanted it, we could have it. (Just like if we wanted marriage, we could have it; if we wanted utopia...) Why R.B. Fuller says: that, or oblivion-not realizing that he as well as us are the product of a choice made long ago"
My little contribution to the profound Prof. Michael Grossinger's thinking-and this is just a bit of thinking that reading his work started-I really don't even know how close to what he is trying to say it would be!
I had a thought this evening that WE had better hope the rabbit hole goes really freaking deep-so deep that it would appear as travelling through interstellar space-or maybe WE should start wanting IT and big-time! Why? Because THEY have all of the fucking guns, money, politicians, property, etc etc etc (most of the stuff that counts in meatspace reality anyway). So here is the shakeout I had from this: If the rabbit hole is only deep enough to where THEY want to pretty much control all of 3-D earthly reality-but nothing else-nothing to do with spirit or consciousness; that means WE are pretty much fucked for the things I listed above! BUT if the rabbit hole goes so deep that there is a spiritual element involved --a real SOUL level element--then 99.9% of us just might have a chance.
Sure that would mean they want the 'SOUL' part too, but it gives us an element of our own control, free will, destiny perhaps? The choice between serving God and others or serving whatever it is that THEY serve. I am also coming to believe more and more (I say this because I have been on this road of trying to understand reality and the world for quite a long time now) that what THEY do involves some sort of reality creation. I know it sounds crazy-but there it is. I also think that whatever WE do to combat their plans must involve reality creation and the archetypal/soul/spirit/imaginal level.
I was going to close this with a few lines from Corinthians-now of course I can't find it even though I highlighted the area! LOL-remember Ricardo Montalban and "real Corinthian leather"? Hope to be back to finish in a few minutes. I hope this post made sense-for some reason I felt a very pressing need to post this tonight-I even tried to ignore it but it wouldn't go away. If anyone reads this that is interested and doesn't understand please ask me!
Corinthians 2:11-15 11 For who among men knows the things of a man except the spirit of man that is in him? So, too, no one has come to know the things of God except the spirit of God.12 Now we received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that have been kindly given us by God.13 These things we also speak, not with words taught by human wisdom, but with those taught by [the] spirit, as we combine spiritual [matters]with spiritual [words].14 But a physical man does not receive the things of the spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot get to know [them], because they are examined spiritually.15 However, the spiritual man examines indeed all things, but he himself is not examined by any man.
Oh- one last thought that I might expand on later-especially with regard to reality and how God and WE might create it: Whomever among you says that the Universe is the ultimate free lunch (many times using modern physics to do it) is talkin' trash-or is it trash talkin'? Well whatever-the idea that this so-called 'cosmic vacuum' allowed the Universe to be created because said vacuum is unstable, is simply folks playing semantic games. They are trying to 'cheaply' in my opinion, get around this rather huge philosophical problem, of a WE who are HERE AT ALL to talk about philosophical problems!
I think this apparent need in many modern scientists, many different types of people really, to get rid of infinity/eternity is similar/the same of an apparent need to get rid of God. I believe something akin to Hoyle's Steady State theory or 'Electric/Plasma' Universe theory will replace the so-called Big Bang theory. Just because our human minds when they are on 'normal' frequencies can't conceive of something, doesn't mean those somethings don't exist! And this includes what I believe to be the infinite/eternal nature of the Cosmos. But really this should have been another post-sorry!
This is a biggy and will probably come up in some other posts.
I need a link with some more information to this HUGE scandal and the 'tentacles' it clasped around the globe!
Haha my alphabetization is already off- sigh- nobuddy's purrfect!
I always loved this poem-hope ya'll do too! And,of course, am a huge W.Blake fan!
Actually I find it more than a 'poem' as maybe all of the great poems are-perhaps? a 'meditation' on something profound? In this case an almost Gnostic type pondering on the Creator and Creation!

If I truly had separate categories in my little encylopedia here this would be classified under conspiracy! Those who would presume to rule over have a large 'toolbox'--and one of their tools is a very large, stiff, hard (hurts like hell!) economic club! One of the things I would very much like to do when I feel like I can finally type anything of any length is to write some articles about how 'deep' down the rabbit hole this economic lance thrusts!
I would very highly recommend ordering the book "The Global Economic Crisis" edited by Profs Michel Chossudovsky and Andrew Gavin Marshall from Global Research. http://www.globalresearch.ca/
ps-I have no clue why my links aren't working-will work on this!
What things/events should I include in my encylcopedia of the good and bad in the world past, present and future? Topics can include just about anything-conspiracy, politics, philosophy, paranormal, fortean and ontology-just to name a few!
