Dream-diary, July-Septembre 2014

July 3rd-4th (Thur-Fri) 2014 :- Dream : I was among other persons, including a brown-skinned woman who was clad only in a skimpy nightgown, so that her arms and legs were exposed. I was promptly stroking (with both of hands simultaneously on a single limb of hers) one at a time each of her arms (one at a time), and nextly on each of her legs (one at a time), while being viewed doing this by other persons. Soon I had her nude, and then I was kissing on her body, including especially on her clitoris, while I was being observed doing this by another woman (light-skinned), who remarked (about the woman whose nude body I was thus kissing in public) concerning her clitoris, "See that penis on that woman!"; and I thought that I ought perhaps to correct her vocabulary by telling her that the correct word for the part on a woman's body is /clitoris/, not /penis/; but then I thought that it would be rude of me to correct her vocabulary if she was actually that ignorant of accurate vocabulary. [Wondring about the psychological implications of accurate vocabulary-expression of this nature, I awoke.] {I do not distinctly remember ever kissing a brown-skinned (Negroid) woman's vulva in a dream before (-- it was always some light-skinned, Caucasoid, woman whose vulva I would be kissing); nor do I remember anyone in a dream remarking aloud about a woman's vulva, nor indeed remarking anything about a woman's nude body; nor even remember anything about any part of any woman's body being remarked aloud about by anyone else in a dream.} {Perhaps this my kissing of a brown-skinned woman, and my hearing her nude body-part being remarked about, came about in a dream on this occasion because I have been reading articles about, and typing up quotations from tne articles about (in order to put onto the Internet), so-called "sex magick" in Thelema, a system which is known to and used by persons speaking almost entirely European languages (indeed mainly the English language). In the past I have read about, typed up quotations from, and put onto the Internet, examples only of instances mystical-occult-oriented sexual activities of persons speaking non-European languages (from translations of Samskr.ta and of Chinese, neither of which I well understand) describing sexual activities (including sexual religious rites of Kamarupa Kaula-Tantra and of Shantung Tao) of persons in non-English-speaking, non-European-speaking, countries.}

July 5th-6th (Satur-Sun) 2014 :- Dream : I was concerned with how to redorganize a written statement about the nature of spiritual powers, so as to make the most cohaerent and consistent literary expression of that statement; so that its redexpression could be as well devised as a model based on a praevious expression of the same already was. [Pondering details of this, I awoke.] {I had just spent the day (i.e., July 5th) with J.M. in her hospital room at Tu. Cen.,where she hath remained ensconced for some years, crippled by the arthritis which she acquired by refusing to eat an adequate variety of foods; just as the other woman with whom I used to speak by telephone (after she had been visiting me for years while I myself had been a prisoner in the insane asylum) also ruined her own health and resultingly died also as a consequence of not eating enough variety of foods; although I consistently over the years warned both such women that they would wreck their healths by lack of adequate variety in their diet. I had spent that day redenacting the dream of the night of July 3rd-4th, by stroking with both of hands simultaneously on a single limb of hers) one at a time each of her arms (one at a time), and nextly on each of her legs (one at a time), and nextly kissing her belly, her breasts, and her face; while all that time expounding aloud the fact that I was redenacting that dream in order to please the dream-deities who had sent the dream. Before going by omnibus in the morning at 9:00 A.M., I had spoken firstly by telephone with the woman Pr. Pr. (who hath often told me of her belief that dreams are divinely produced) of our Soc. of Fr. meeting of the fact that I was about to go to this woman J.M. in order to redenact the dream; nextly before leaving to go out by omnibus, I had I spoken to the woman (who is brown-skinned) at the office-desk at the ground-level of the building of the fact that I was going to redenact my dream of being with a brown-skinned woman by going to visit a brown-skinned woman; and likewise while I was visiting at the hospital, I had during an interlude spoken to a staff-woman who was in charge of a group of the patients (at least a dozen, all female) in the ward who were all together in the day-room, explaining to her (in the hearing of all those patients) that I had come to visit her on account of my dream, just as (I explained) come to visit her likewise on account of a dream about a year praeviously. The residue of the time in the hospital-room with her, I was explaining that the dream-deities (whom I said could hear whatever I was saying to her there, on account of the fact that the spirits who had invisibly accompanied the patients to that insane-asylum hospital for the bodily-crippled, would be overhearing what was being said and would relay the information to the dream-deities if the dream-deities were not adequately overhearing of their own accord) -- and I was asking (so I said) for the dream-deities to rendre a more adequate exposition in dreams of just exactly whatever it may be that they might be expecting of me, in order that I might redenact it while I be awake after each dream.}

July 7th Mon (during daytime) 2014 :- Dream : I was looking at a group of women, some nude, in a room. In particular, I was looking at a brown-skinned woman who was lying nude on the floor, with her vulva opening and closing. Soon I was standing with a group of standing women, and I noticed that my penis was hanging out of my trousers so that the women could see it, and so I shoved in into my trousers. [Then I awoke.]

July 7th-8th Mon-Tue 2014 :- Dream : I was viewing naked women.

July 8th-9th Tue-Wed 2014 :- Dream : A woman was asking whether access was "open"; when she walked toward it, she became only about a foot tall, so I realize she must be a fae:ry, and I thought that she might be referring to openings small enough for her body then in some furnishings. [Then I awoke.]

July 9th-10th Wedn-Thur 2014 :- not quite a dream :- While reclining with mine eyen closed (whilst awake) I did briefly (perhaps for a second) see a vision of woman (light-skinned) clad only in underwear. [I had not been viewing any pictorial visions (instead only rather unshapely non-eikonographic white ones, for a fraction of a second, when hearing a sudden noise while falling asleep, typically in a Soc. of Fr. meeting) in recent years (or, perhaps, even in decades; whereas decades ago in B., GA, I used with mine eyes closed regularly to a sequence of standing animals of various species appearing one at a time; or in a few cases an elephant in successive walking postures).]

July 13th-14th Sun-Mon 2014 :- Dream : I was contemplating the fact that earlier in the dream I had recently been experiencing differences in qualities of my dreamings; such as, apparently while aware that I was dreaming, I had (earlier in the same dream) seen a concentrically orange-color-(on black-)patterned-in-concentric-circle-segments device which while observing I had understood to be symbolic of living plants; and that I had not ever before experienced such a symbolic device -- the notion of its being a symbol may have come from a vague memory of the Chinese emblem for "Former Heaven". {I had, while awake, a day or two before, mentioned (I think while talking over the telephone to my brother S.A.) the concentric-circles mythic geography of the Puran.a-s -- which are mostly mythologies, although one of them, the Agni Puran.a, is more encyclopaedic. The Encyclopaedia of Hinduism's editor's recent death was announced yesterday (Sunday) in the meeting of the Soc. of Fr. (Perhaps the two colors represent gold and jetstone, or else golden-hued Tirtha-ankara-s and black-bodied Kr.s.n.a-s.) So I was about to mention the changes in my dreaming to my mother, but because my sistre was in the room just before my mother's room, I mentioned this first to the sistre (D.C.) before going into my mother's room, where she was lying in such a large bed that I wondred at it. [Then I awoke.]}

July 14th-15th Mon-Tue 2014 :- Dream : I was observing an arrangement of a mechanistic device being configured by persons, which device apparently was causing my being subjected to hearing the quite unpleasant music which I was unable to rendre myself to cease from hearing; and I was alarmed at the prospect that the said arrangement might not be turned off by them. So, I said to them that I was unsure of whether they were even capable of so setting the device as to turn off the displeasing music, possibly leaving me trapped into the discomfort of continually hearing it. [Then, suddenly, in this state of unpleasantness with anxiety about impending events, I awoke.] {I had, while awake, left the computer playing, into my wireless headset-earphones, instrumental music off the internet (last.fm); that music by now being unpleasant-sounding (a commonplace popular music-type, which to me soundeth distastely crude).}

c. July 2st-22nd 2014 :- Dream : Water was spraying in conical array from each finger. I though that it was miraculous, not realizing that it was in a dream.

July 22-23rd Tue-Wed 2014 :- Dream : Without seeing anything, I heard a voice calling out "Mr Richards". I answered aloud, though I realized by then that I was awakening.

July 31st-Aug 1st Thur-Fri 2014 :- Dream : I was, with other persons, in the open countryside in some tropical region, and I was considering a description which I had heard of the local area as having a certain number of points denoting branching of rivers {This in the dream may have been due to my having about the day before cited Vi-s`akha ('branched') as a name similar to branches mentioned in some other myth, in my notes from a book, to put onto the internet.}, and was attempting to match that description with what I could see in the local alluvium of apparently quite recent waterflow-channels in what was right then ordinary soil, considering to myself that these inland evidences of channels, though not now containing water, may indicate seasonal flooding every year. Nextly, I was wondering whether the local few scattered tall trees could be easily climbed so that we would be able to escape the crocodiles which must arrive whenever the land would be flooded. {In the early 1960s when we were dwelling in tropical South America, my father used often to mention local crocodiles in the river, and we had a large tanned reptile-skin. I had also just a day or two before seen a drawing of a person isolated out-of-doors in a tropical area, with a large praedator creeping up behind that person in the drawing. Waterways (pp. 396 & 398) and crocodiles (p. 399) are featured in the book (Ashgate Companion to Paranormal Cultures, in the article "Monsters ... Prehistoric Ghosts") which I was looking at recently in the last Soc. of Fr. meeting, and whose table of contents I then shewed to J.R.'s wife C.F. I do not remembre having seen the featured places in that book then of prior to then, but her having seen the table of contents may have induced her guardian angel to surveil the book's contents without anyone's opening the pages; so that that guardian-angel may have transmitted to me that dream -- or else I may have opened to those pages while skimming the book in that meeting, without their features registering in my own conscious memory, and her guardian angel may have been reading it at that time more attentively than I, and may have produced and sent me that dream.} Soon I saw, at a distance of perhaps a quarter of a mile, a huge (at least 10 feet tall and 40 feet long) deinosaur walking along behind persons who were arriving in mechanized vehicles, and I thought that if such persons were to exit their vehicles, they would be immediately seized and eaten by such a deinosaur. I promptly climbed up a tall tree, far enough up it (at least a 30 feet up) to be safe from being caught and eaten by that deinosaur or by any similar deinosaur which might also be arriving. Soon, when other such persons arrived close-by, within earshot, I was telling them (who were already high enough in a wooden structure, evidently to evade deinosaurs) that it may be that some persons would be encouraging the deinosaurs to catch and to eat us. [Thereupon, while wondring what those persons' response would be, I awoke.] {I do not remember ever before having dreamt of deinosaurs. However, a few weeks ago, I added among the posters almost entirely covering the interior walls of my apartment on the top storey of this residential aedifice, page-size (printed by our printing-device over ten years earlier, off the internet) copies of (one a drawing and two paintings of) women riding deinosaurs.} {Howbeit, the same book (ACPC) hath a chapter (12th) on Wilhelm Reich, a book (Oranur Conspiracy) about whom was written by G.R.'s business-partner, as I mentioned to C.F. (while walking to the state-capitol building to hold signs last Wedn), and she then recalled and mentioned to G.R. his family-name /Befumo/, whereof the latter part /-fumo/ is cognate with Skt /dhuma/ 'smoke', and likely with <ibri^ /Dumah/ 'Silence', the main feature of Soc. of Fr. meetings. As for the former part /Be/, the English word /be/ is cognate with Skt /bhu/ 'to become, to change one's self into' (scil., e.g., a monstre), as in /bhuta/ ('spirit-possession monstre'), and, appositely, in terms like /[scare the] BE-jesus [out of someone]/ (one of my father's most favorite expressions in the early 1960s; he was still using vocabulary popular in the 1930s). As for the word /deino-/ ('terrible'), Fick considered (Lewis & Short : Latin Dictionary, s.v. /beo/) it and /deid-/ cognate with Latin /be-o/ 'I bless', which may be the first element in /Be-fumo/.} {A few weeks ago, I added among the posters almost entirely covering the interior walls of my apartment on the top storey of this residential aedifice, page-size (printed by our printing-device over ten years earlier, off the internet) copies of (one a drawing and two paintings of) women riding deinosaurs.}

Aug 4th-5th Mon-Tue 2014 :- Dream : On a road over countryside in apparently late evening, in dimness, I was riding with my father (he being in the driver's seat) in an automobile which, as he told me, was driving itself without his having to steer it over the road, which often curved (as I noticed while it was driving itself). The road was devoid at that time of other vehicles, so I asked him whether, if there were to be an obstacle (such as a halted automobile) in the roadway ahead, our moving automobile would sense it (I was thinking of its necessarily using radar) and automatically stop itself. [But then, while wondring to myself whether the automatic-driving device would be able to cope with all possible hazards and emergencies of driving, I awoke.] {This sort of dream would be appropriate to involve my father, who in the 1960s did an electronics-technician's work in maintaining (among other electronics equipment) the radar-system being used by the automatic-depth-soundings survey-ship Dolly on the Orinoco.}

Aug 8th-9th Fri-Satur 2014 :- Dream : I was seated on the right side of a large sofa, with a series of women seated to my left. The woman immediately beside me to my left (who was large-bodied and plump, thus appearing quite pretty to me) was talking with the woman to her left. I was wondring whether to intrude into her conversation with the woman beside her, to tell her that I was willing to allow any woman to hurt me if she would be willing to have sexual intercourse with me, and to ask her if this would be agreeable for her to do with me. But I haesitated to say this to her, for the two women were not discussing between them thiis particular topic, so that it would have been off-topic for me to introject this into their conversation. Soon we were off the sofa and standing in the room, and I went to the woman whom I had been sitting beside, and continued walking beside her when she began walking in a corridor through the building, though as yet without my speaking to her. Soon, while we were walking together, she told me to follow her to her room. I immediately thought that she must either have been directly instructed by a divine voice (audible only to her) to invite me into me room, or else the divinity must have influenced her emotionally to take such a liking to me without that divinity's having instructed her in audible words. So, I asked her, "How did you know about me?". She did not answer, and we continued walking together. We passed through a double-door (two adjacent doors with their hinges on opposite side) into another part of the building, having just inside the area a reception-booth with women. I notice that we had left the double-door open, so I hastened back and closed it, and by that time woman with whom I had been walking (and who must have kept on walking while I hastened back to close the open double-door) was out-of-sight in the wide corridor, so I figured that she had expected me to rapidly find her again by hastening in the direction she had been walking, so I did and promptly found her, and we continued walking together. [Thereupon I awoke.] {The evening before this, when I had been talking by telephone to M.G. and each of our possibilities of finding some woman who would be agreeable to sexual intercourse, he was suggesting to me (after I discarded his initial vague suggestions by telling him that I needed a woman who, like myself, took an interest in devil-worship) that I attend the local informal meeting at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Gaia organization, which was largely of persons interested in witchcraft (and the U.U. being located not far from me). So, I agreed with him, and afterwards looked up on the internet a description of the meeting, its time (weekly) and location. It is likely that the dream was intended to favor my meeting some suitable woman in that way; I had never before in a dream thought of telling a woman in the dream that she would be welcome to hurt me if she would agree to have sexual intercourse with me -- which would most likely attract a woman in a dream (i.e., a goddess) to me strongly, so that she (with approval by her kin, who would like the offer of a man from the waking-world to volunteer to be tortured by a woman indigenous to the dream-world) would seek a permanent connection with me by regularly meeting with me in forthcoming dreams.}

Aug 9th-10th Sat-Sun 2014 :- Dream : I understood that someone had recenly written a book about the philosophical attitudes within some non-literate tribe; and I was thinking to myself about methodological difficulties both in composing such a book, and even in evaluating it. [While pondering this, I awoke.]

Aug 15th-16th Fri-Satur 2014 :- Dream : When turning my head somewhat toward the left, I was looking at what I thought was the face of the deity : I was wondring how to combine the divine nature with the nature of the ordinary world, so as to improve the ordinary world. [Ponderous on this, I awoke.] {Perhaps it may have been located leftward because of the merchants' being seated on the left in the Parliament of France; with the usefulness of merchant's travels to import a variety of foreign ideas so as to infiltrate through the centre seating (of religious clergy) in the Parliament in order to affect the land-owners (nobility -- who might be capable of communicating naturally with the landwights) seated on the right in Parliament.}

Aug 19th (during daytime) Tue 2014 :- Falling half-asleep : I saw a book having as its title (embossed on its cover) "WARIHI-MIJI". {apparently in some African language. I had been reading the book Central Africa in the Caribbean, section "Divining Rods", when I fell half-asleep.}

Aug 27th-28th Wedn-Thur 2014 :- Dream : I was noticing an explanation being provided of human thoughts in terms of mind-chemicals. Earlier, I had been dreaming of a sort of mental institution for apparently mentally deficient persons, arranged in 4 storeys (each storey being apparently for persons of a particular style of mental disability), which storeys I visited each briefly in succession, going upwards from storey to storey, and staying on each storey only long enough to notice what specific sort of mental deficiency was perculiar to (noticeable in the behaviour of inmates) each storey of inmates; I went by elevator upward to each storey in succession, until on the 4th (the highest) storey, I noticed suddenly that one of the inmates (a man) had peculiar glowing eyen. I told him that he must somehow be in control (meaning by psychic power) of the other inmates on that storey; then, having told him this, I went to the elevator with the intention of taking it downwards so that I could re-visit each storey in order to find out whether I could figure which inmate on each storey must have some peculiar praeternatural physical feature which would denote that inmate's being covertly in control of the other inmates on that storey. But while I was waiting for the elevator to arrive, I realized that the man to whom I had just spoken might have gone to gather other inmates to appraehend (arrest) me on account of my having spoken of his miraculous power; so instead of waiting any longer, I hastened to the stairwell (which was close to the elevator), and walked down it rapidly, first encountering a minor apparent obstacle (but I went around it) on the landing between storeys, then next noticing an apparent workman of sorts who was nigh to the door of the stairwell to the storey immediate next going downwards (but I went around him and exited the stairwell into the storey immediately below). {The day before (Wedn) in the morning, we (I and Mr. G. R., he having driven me) had gone by elevator in the Foederal Building to the Social Security (on the 11th floor) so that I could file there my change of address (from the 13th called 14th floor, to the 18th called 19th floor of my residential building). While I had been waiting for him downstairs outside at my building, a woman who was to be with us in front of the State Capitol Building (that day, in the afternoon) happed to bicycle to the building and stopped to speak with me until he arrived; I mentioning to him the peculiarity of the fortuitous meeting in front of the building. Later, when were together in front of the State Capitol, after G.R. and his wife had departed, I spake again to the same woman until she likewise departed (but by bicycle) -- did my speaking to her twice that day somehow occasion the dream? As usual, I had left (while asleep) the music playing from the internet (last.fm, "Renaissance" tag) into my headset. But at the university-library (while walking homewards toward the apartment which I had that day registred my residence at with Social Security), I picked up (interlibrary loan, from Emory U) a copy of the book S`unya Purus.a ('Empty Person'), whose title could have connoted to me the emptiness of some sort to mental ability of inmates on each of the storeys in the dream. Incidentally, while we were waiting at the Social Security office, I was reading the current Zen magazine article describing the quaery as to whether we are awake or asleep in terms (evidently alluding to the book of Zhuang Zhou -- Ts>uang Ts>ou -- , as I told Mr. G.R. while he was driving me back home from the S.S.) of a moth.}

Aug 28th-29th Thur-Fri 2014 :- Dream : I was about to walk up a peculiar staircase, but because it was so narrow that two persons could not pass each other on it, I had to wait until a woman who was walking down it had finished walking, before I could walk up it : what was peculiar about it was that each step of it was separately held in place by a single rod fixed (at the angle of the stairs, and at the meridian going through the centre of each) so as by iself to sustain all the stairs of that flight, with open air between the steps, and with open air to each side surrounding the hand-rails. {This sort of staircase (except with the stairs not so narrow, and with perhaps more than one rod sustaining the stairs) I have seen and walked on only at the university's library, where Mr. G.R. I walked on it together when we set up, some years ago, a joint library-account at the library society (Th.C.). Perhaps this dream was intended (by the dream-world) as a reminder that I ought to tell him also about the praevious dream about going up the elevator in the building. I had mentioned that dream only to his wife, when I called her cell-telephone to mention to her the co-incidence (which I figured was divinely arranged for me to understand) of the last 4 digits in her cell-telephone # being the same as what I had just noticed as the number of minutes + seconds that I had been listening to a certain piece of music (apparently "Celtic Music" both composed and uploaded by Adrian von Ziegler) on YouTube. On the blog for that music, the last commenter (listener) had also noticed the composer's being the uploader, and had commented, with 2 other persons (listeners) also commenting on that comment -- the comments all being that the composer's name was not Keltic. This piece was in a group for continous playing beginning with "Dark Celtic Music -- Spirit Rituals", which I had decided would be suitable to listen to (by wireless headset) at some times other than when I would be listening to polyphonic chanting (by loudspeakers while at the desk). I had started listening exclusively to polyphonic chanting when I had read a printed account (which I had uploaded onto the internet) of the social benefits of polyphonic chanting in producing mutual co-operation (for other tasks). The account dealt which meaningly vowel-chant (which reminded me of KarlHeinz Stockhausen's Stimmung, which he said he was exhorted to promote by extraterrestrials in his dreaming of praevious incarnations of his on their planet, so that he was reckoned as one of them). I had already told Mr. G.R. about the (posthumously published account) by Wilhelm Reich by his realizing that he was himself also an extraterrestrial.}a

Sept 2nd (Tue, durng daytime) 2014 :- Dream : I was seated at a long dinner-table facing my father, with a wall to my right (his left). He almost dropped a pot of vegetable stew as he was extending his arms to place it to his right on the table; he would have been helped to put it there (I thought) if the woman who had been seated there had not left the room. A few seconds later, when I looked across the table to where he had been seated, I did not see him; so I hastened around the table and saw that he was lying on the ground, apparently unconscious (with a little blood on his head), as yet in his chair, which had apparently tipped over to his right. I was thinking that I ought to hasten to tell the woman who had left the table, and might be in the toilet-room. [Then I awoke.]

Sept 2nd-3rd (Tue-Wedn) 2014 :- Dream : Hearing prophecies of the future of the world. {That same night, C.F. dreamt (as she told on Wedn) that she had hugged praesident Obama, praising him while doing so.}

Sept 4th-5th (Thur-Fri) 2014 :- Dream : Out-of-doors, in the dimness, someone was shining a floodlight on a group of large succulent plants {I had mentioned, by telephone the day before to my mother, that I had recently purchased a small succulent plant in a pot, to keep on my window-sill.} in order better to see an animal (which seemed to be an iguana) which was hiding among them. Then I was told to go and stand beside the small house, while the person shining the floodlight was to do so toward the house from the direction apart from the house, so that I would better be able to see the animal. [Thereupon I awoke.] {The name "iguana" (pronounced "iwana") hath seemed intriguing by resembled the name /Iwa/ (in the Puran.a-s) of Cloud 9, as I recall having mentioned to M.J. (P.P.'s husband) while he was driving me to the S.ofF. meeting (when he was describing the clouds visible in the sky then) a few weeks ago.

Sept 6th-7th (Satur-Sun) 2014 :- Dream : I had been offered to stay in a certain mansion where I then was, but when I was had just pulled from off from the floor three large pieces of decorative adhaesive sheeting {I had the evening before, while awake, read on the internet of decorative adhaesive sheeting while viewing examples for sale of iridescent sheeting} from the lowest storey in praeparation to carrying them upstairs so as to put them on the floor of where I had been offered to stay, I heard a recitation (apparently in the voice of the owner of the mansion) which sounded potentially hostile, so I dropped them and hastily existed the mansion via the first open window which I saw, and proceeded to start walking (down a series of platform-like descending series of landscape-levels, something like a step-pyramid) crosscountry away from the mansion, expecting that I would not be seen before I could walk out of sight. [Then I awoke.]

Sept 8th-9th (Mon-Tue) 2014 :- Dream : In the room of the house, I saw first one white spider hanging in the air from its supended thread, then next a whole disk-shaped clump of spiders, one section of the clump consisting of white spiders (this was the larger section), and the other section consisting of black spiders, all likewise hanging clumped together suspended in the air from their unified thread-rope. My father was saying that they looked like cockroaches, but I lifted the clump (which now seemed to be contained within a transparent disk) by its thread-rope to within close range from his eyen, and I told him to look carefully and that he could see that there were no cockroaches in the clump, but only spiders, and that he had always liked spiders; and I said that I would set the contained clump of spiders outside the house. He then said to put the clump of spiders across the highway (where there was a forest), and I agreed that I would. [Then I awoke.] {When spiders are newly-hatched, they are white and are in a clump clinging to the burst-open egg-case whence they just then have come forth. I had the day before been typing notes (to put on the internet) about disk-shaped flying saucers; and some flying saucers do lift persons into the air by a thread-like tractor-beam.}

Sept 9th (Tue) 2014 :- Not a dream : I experienced this day a slight coi:ncidence in that, after mentioning this day (on the telephone) to D. H. Kelley's widow that I had sent for (by interlibrary loan) the book (by M. Bertiaux) Vudu Cartography, afterwards this same day I was reading (for the first time) the article "Mapping Territories" (by E. W. Kellogg III). I had about the day praeviously mentioned (on the telephone) to G.R.'s wife C.F. the similarity to (her favorite author) Edgar Cayce the sleeping prophet, while the article "Mapping Territories" likewise mentioned information obtained in sleep.

Sept 13th-14th (Sat-Sun) 2014 :- Dream : I was writing up citations of abilities of certain named shamans.

Sept 25th-26th (Thur-Fri) 2014 :- Dream : I was located in the open central area of a ring-shaped thicket, and was for some reason suspecting that hostile persons might soon penetrate through the thicket and then notice me in the open central area; so I resolved first to penetrate through the thicket myself on the opposite side from where the hostile persons were, and then to escape further beyond to where they would be unable to see me; next I resolved that (because I was not sure that the hostile persons were not already surrounding the thicket on all sides) I would simply go into the thicket and hide within it. {On one occasion, some 20 years ago in C, GA, when I had escaped from the insane asylum and was being closely pursued by police, I penetrated into a bramble thicket, and remained hidden within it (while I could hear sounds from the police-cars on roadways apparently surrounding the thicket-area) all that night; they had left by the coming morning.} But as I approached the thicket, though I arrived so close that I was seeing a magnified view (i.e., only inches away), I could not bring forth my hand so as to pull open the thicket in order to enter it. [Wondring how to cope with this difficulty, I then awoke.] {Perhaps I could not produce my hand because I may have lacked a body; which could explain how by approaching something, I could see a magnified view of it. (When, instead, one is using bodily eyen to see, an approach within inches will yield a blurry view, rather than a magnified view. I have perhaps never before experienced a magnified view in a dream by approaching an object.)}

Sept 29th (Mon) 2014 :- Not a dream : I arrived at a realization (proposition, integrating ontology with epistemology) in metaphysics which, if enabled to control one's own philosophical point-of-view/outlook, could resolve many ostensible paradoxes regarding behaviour of intelligent living beings, and could liberate one's own practicable application of social activism by so broadly imposing a suspension of judgement over so many regions of social controversy, that the residual elements (where such suspension need not be so applied) of potential activism (such as in health-matters, in legal matters, in modifying theology so as to match political demokrateia, etc.) could be dealt with, with greater expeditiousness and thus with more effectiveness. [The health-matters would include promotion of known effective cures against AIDS (auto-imuune ... syndrome) and against cancer; while the legal matters could include (at least selective implementation of) the technique (legal loop-hole deliberately left in the U.S.A. governmental law) for obviating (negating) the personal income-tax (on wages etc.). Theology could be modified so as to match socio-political demokrateia : with committees of deities intercommunicating networkingly.]

The realization in metaphysics is thus : though there might appear to be an ostentible contradiction between working-class humans' legal right (in a democracy) to eliminate their being exploited and otherwise abused by any ruling-classes (or -classes) on the one hand, and the lack of implementation of such legal right on the other hand -- and though the legal right (to vote thus) could easily be supplemented both by appeals to one's own spirit-guide (fravas^i, guardian-angel, or the like) and to general guardian-spirits of special of living beings (i.e., of animal-species, of plant-species, even of bacteria-species, etc.) and of non-living substances (i.e., the so-called "elemental spirits", which may include the possessing-spirits of spirit-mediumship) --; yet nevetheless this seeming paradox need not be regarded as any contradiction in light of the coding-principle necessary to (and thus entailed in) any possible metaphysics regarding existence as dependent on usefulness in defining (and thus in maintaining the vogue of) universal consciousness (or universality of consciousness). [The necessity for this coding-principle might be perceived in a combination of the requirement of a self-looping process ("strange loop") for consciousness, with an analogy of consciousness with computer-programming, wherein coding is essential.] Due to a thorough-going coding-process (as applied individually to the consciousnesses of living beings), their behaviour may not directly reflect their own internal feelings, so that ostensible signs of feelings along the happiness-to-distress spectrum may well repraesent something other than the ostensible status : so that, e.g., the majority of persons may feel enjoyment in being exploited (by capitalism), in being slaughtered in world-wars (by capitalism), etc.; and might feel distressed at exposure to classical music, to fine arts, etc. [If so, then efforts to convert the majority of voters to any communist-socialist system of sharing may be futile because not able to produce joy nor delight in the majority of persons -- and if so, communal-pacifistic sharing-systems would be useless to the majority of the population.]

The upshot (logical deduction, for being implemented) would be that the minority of the population (i.e., those persons whose internal sensibilities are in accord external display of behaviour) ought to [while maintaining some public stance of protest against capitalism, against war-mongering, etc., simply in order, by this stance, to keep on informing the spirit-world that they (their souls) have different needs from the needs of the majority] confine their discussions on the metaphysics of such concerns to the few persons (of their acquaintance) who demonstrate similar attitudes and behaviours as their own.

{The reason for this metaphysical realization's having come to the fore (into conscious recognition thereof) at the current juncture of events (mentions made to me by persons in our local Soc. of Fr.) :- G. R. had recently (last Wedn) reminded me of the fact that we are not certain that our own sensations match those of other species of living beings; M. G. had recently mentioned (as I had read of years earlier) the "strange loop" of consciousness; and P. P. had the day (Sept 28th) before told me (as she had before, but I had largely forgotten) of her own sudden realization (decades earlier) of the general falsehood of conventional metaphysics. Hearing anything of this ilk, I ask the spirits who were praesent to impart a realization to any other person, to impart to me likewise any realization which they may have available for delivery to the willingly receptive.}

Sept 30th-Oct 1st (Tue-Wedn) 2014 :- Dream : We were sitting in chairs a large room. I was sitting in in a chair beside a nude woman, who was also sitting in a chair. While she was speaking to me, she described a scene where a woman was rubbing on another woman's vulva. I realized that for her to describe this to me while she seated beside me rendred it appropriate (permissible) for me to start rubbing on her vulva, without even my even having to ask her for permission; so I did so -- rubbed on her vulva for a few seconds. Then, because I noticed that there were other people in the room who might object to my doing so, I stopped rubbing on her vulva, saying to her in explanation, something like : "I am stopping rubbing on it because of the other people who might see." [Thereupon I awoke.] {I had the evening (Sept 30th) before read the passage (written by a woman) : "I was holding his cock tight and I gave it a stretch, while holding my outer labia majora and stretching. When you squeeze your outer lips together your little clitoris starts getting hard. I was getting myself revved, pulling my pussy lips out, and stroking and squeezing. ... I had two pretty intense “outies” (clitoris orgasms), but no innies." http://jenwebby.com/more-about-oral-cunnilingus-lick-me-kiss-me-suck-me-sex/

I did not recall reading elsewhere that squeezing (and pulling and rubbing) on the labia majora of a woman's vulva was capable of causing to experience orgasm; so that on account of not having read that before, I had not thitherto done any rubbing on a woman's vulva in dreams (though I had on number of occasions in dreams sucked on a woman's vulva, because I had praeviously read that such sucking was able to induce orgasm in a woman).} I was (when reading her account) also surprised that a knowledgeable and experienced woman would distinguish between "outer" and "inner" orgasms.

Oct 6th-7th (Mon-Tue) 2014 :- Dream : I noticed on the floor a box with a piece of man's clothing on top which I did not recognize; then I remembred that a woman (of a couple whom I knew personally) had been there looking through a box of her husband's clothing, so I figured that she must have forgotten to take the box of clothing, and I wondred how to find her that I could give the box of clothing to her. [While I was wondring I awoke; and as I was awaking I suddenly realized that I had been asleep there was no way of taking anything out of the dream world to deliver into the waking-world where that couple lived.] {I saw recently in our Latin-English dictionary an expression for 'clothed in'.}

Oct 11th-12th (Satur-Sun) 2014 :- Dream : I heard and saw one woman saying that she saw another woman being bitten by a shark. With me following behind, the former hurried whither, on the beach, the latter was being bitten, and forced the shark to release the latter : the shark had been holding with its teeth onto the woman's shoulder. {During the day (Oct 11th) just praeceding, the woman C.F. had stopped at my apartment : when she arrived, the music (off the internet, via my computer) playing (through loudspeakers) in my apartment was Bach's motets. When I asked of her an opinion about the music, she said that she appretiated it, so I told her what it was and that the internet music-station was GrooveSHARK, and told her that she could listen to the same music from the same music-station herself at her own (shared with her husband G.R.'s) house. She agreed. {I had a few years earlier started listening regularly to music-stations on the internet when, while I was playing music on YouTube (so that she could her it) while talking over the internet-telephone to the woman J.M. who was then in the insane-asylum hospital (at T.C.), J.M. told me to playing music for her to hear wherever I would call her by telephone -- so that I then had sought out specifically music-stations (rather than merely YouTube, which is not restricted to music) on the internet at that time, and had found (among others) Grooveshark, which music-stations I would thenceforward play for J.M. wherever I would be calling her by telephone. Whenever I would visit J.M. (even at the B.St. insane asylum before she was transferred to T.C.), she would have me start squeezing on her shoulders as an example of how to massage her body. [On moving to my current building of residence, G.R. had me listen to music from the internet via a headset, instead of over loudspeakers as I had while across the street from the state-capitol building, so that I could not then play music for J.M. over the internet; but I had shifted in recent weeks back to listening through the same loudspeakers, after M.G. explained (by internet-telephone) how for me to re-configure by computer audio-settings so as to do so.] While she was departing my apartment, I shewed mention of B.St. "Lunatic Asylum" on the front page of the local COLUMBIA TIMES (Oct 10) newpaper to C.F. Immediately after her departure, I called (Oct 11th), by Skype (internet-telephone) my brother in MI, and told to him of the day's events for me here.}

Oct 13th-14th (Mon-Tue) 2014 :- Dream : I was in a hall with a woman; and she spoke to me. I considered that I recognized her as a woman whom I had been kissing some time earlier, so I said to her, "Let me start kissing on you". And I was ready to; but she had her face turned away from me, and I wondered whether she would turn her face toward me so that I could start kissing it. (Her keeping her face turned to the side I took to be a sign that she did not wish it kissed as of then.) [Then I awoke.]

Oct 14th-15th (Tue-Wedn) 2014 :- Dream : I was reading a book which was citing authors of other writings by the artificial literary names which they were employing for themselves (one of which had, as surname, "Lam", which I recognized as name of a deity mentioned by Aleister Crowley). [While I was wondring about various aspects of quaestions about such artificial use of surnames, including whether the religious cult hath recently been encouraging its membres to employ for themselves in their writings such names as authors, I awoke.] {I have read often of the artificial names chosen for themselves by Golden-Dawn membres, and was the day before wondring whether I ought read more literature about the history of Golden Dawn (such books as Women of the Golden Dawn). The book which had gotten me so interested in the Golden Dawn was The Varieties of Magical Experience, in its citations (on its pages 179 and 181) from visions by women (mentioned by their cult-names) described in the Flying Rolls.}

Oct 19th-20th (Sun-Mon) 2014 :- Dream : I was for some time considering that (in reference to events in the political news) the fact that the very most dramatic events which were possible to happen, always did happen, is a proof that we live in a universe which is is so divinely controlled and divinely arranged, for this to be in actuality possible. [Thereupon I awoke. Incidentally, instances of such sort of dramatic events could be considered to include also so-called serendipity or co-incidences (synchronicity) in one's own personal life as well, such as [over a period of some days, or whatever] looking at a clock (whenever feeling urged to do so) and noticing that in the instance of that instant it is always displaying a time correlated with whatever one in involved with. (For example, when I and my brother were staying in separate rooms -- because he had his wife with him in his room -- in a ho^tel while we were visiting our mother a few years ago in NC, by co-incidence with my birth-year 1943, every time that I would look at the clock, the minutes-part of the clock-time would be "__:43". My internet telephone-number locally starteth with 753-____ (which I had selected from a list of available numbers on account of its being the year (BChrE) of the founding of Roma, and while I was writing this and looked at the computer-clock, it happened to be 7:53 (AM), as if to indicate that I was just now in the process of writing about the control of history by the divine world.] {I had been prompted to think about the divine control of history by the co-incidental (serendipitous) life-events in the biography of the invited speaker (a Democratic-Party politician) the day before (Sunday) at the Soc of Fr meeting here locally; described not only in his speech, but also in the movie featuring (and narrated by) him shewn immediately afterwards (in that Soc of Fr meeting) -- which was explaining why he and others had shifted their allegiance from the Republican Party to the Democratic Party in 1963, an event matched by my arrival (accompanied by my parents) in the United States (to stay in this country) a few days before the political-historic events depicted in the cinematic film shewn.} {A more pertinent and general reason for my thinking of events in the news being demonstrably arranged to display being controlled by the divine world, could be my praediction relating to the mention (in the Ktubim of the TNaK) that "70 years are the years of a man", and 70 years being about to be fulfilled by the flying saucers (since their comencement of surveillance of United States atomic bombing in 1945, at the Army-AirForce airport at which the Enola Gay was grounded immediately after its return from Japan) in a few months.}

Oct 25th-26th {Satur-Sun) 2014 :- Dream : I was inside a college-aedifice which was, as yet, under construction -- nearly completed, however, except (as I discovered by brief explorations inside the aedifice) : this aedifice was intended to be used for teaching the students about human sexual behaviour; so, I was viewing the curriculum-materials intended to be so used, including series of pictorial scenes to be seen through a viewer held to one's eyen, and each series of scenes manually clicked through. While I was thus viewing a sequence of such pictorial scenes, I was hearing at the same time an apparent voice-recording telling me to make sure to view each of the variety of sequential sexual-education scenes; so that, complying with this suggestion, I was while holding the viewer to mine eyen, clicking through each of a variety of such scenes. (The scenes were each of some variation of sexual behaviour between a man and a woman -- kissing, embracing, sexual intercourse in various postures. {The viewer was similar in its action to for-both-eyen viewers which I used some decades ago to look at a series of pictures mounted in a circular-sequence round card made to go from scene to scene by pressing on a lever which would rotate the circular film-card stuck into the mechanism from above. I have not seen such a mechanical viewer (nor even any illustration of it) in recent decades, but such is likely as yet to be manufactured and used.} I also wondered how nearly-completed the tiling on the floors was, so I walked (I was as yet on the ground floor of the aedifice) into the hall further to the left (facing deeper into the aedifice), and saw that a number of individual tile-pieces had not yet been laid, even though the tiling had been completed in the main hall where I had at first been; then I walked back into the main hall. {I had yesterday evening, Oct 25th, mentioned (in our discussion at the Hindu restaurant in L.) floor-tiling in Hellenistic repraesentations of the Kretan Labyrinth of the Minotaur.} Next, I was attempting to carry on a conversation via telephone with a man whom I knew, describing to him the conditions in the aedifice, but (as I soon remarked to him via the telephone-call), the simulated sound of a stormy sea (which was being broadcast within the building via a public-address system) had gradually become so loud that I was unable to understand well any remarks by him, so I told him (via the same telephone-call) that I would immediately go into the staircase and start walking upstairs in order to be able to evade the noisy public-address system on the ground floor. {A few days ago my brother S.A. mentioned that he could hear over the telephone the construction-noise in this building.} I did so (and as soon as I was on the staircase, which went upward from there, I could no longer hear any public address system) : decided as I entered to walk up the staircase with mine eyen shut; and I did so until suddenly the handrail whereto I was holding ceased (as felt with my hand) to extend further, so I stopped and decided to sit down (with mine eyen as yet shut) on the staircase. {The staircase whereon I customarily ascend and descend within the university-grounds from and to the street whereupon I am residing, hath several sections of its handrail missing.} That I did; until after a short while I apparently opened mine eyen while wondring about whether the staircase might continue further upstairs; but with mine eyen opened, I apparently started also wondring whether I ought to step off the staircase onto some one of the various floors to be encountred in walking up the staircase. {The same quandary about whether I ought to step off from the staircase which I was in the process of climbing in order to go out onto some floor of the aedifice, occurred in a dream of mine many years ago, though in that dream I did step off onto one of the storieys. (I may possibly have still been in Chicago at the time, or perhaps in the Maryland suburb of Washington DC -- since those were the places wherein I climbed multi-storey staircases the most.) In that dream of years ago, I had heard music while I was climbing up the staircase, and was (after waking) much intrigued by this; for I could not at that time remembre any praevious dream wherein I had heard any music. (Apparently, last night's dream had resulted from a combination of that praevious dream with the fact that last evening, Oct 25th, I had read a passage mentioning "a melody so sweet and soothing, that a human ear would be as little able to catch the sound" in "The Little Mermaid" tale in Fairy Tales (translated 1913, p. 161) by Hans Christian Andersen (https://archive.org/stream/hansandersensfai00ande/hansandersensfai00ande_djvu.txt ).}

Nov 10th-11th (Mon-Tue) 2014 :- Dream : I was hearing being described to me (by a man) some sort of process, applied in two diferent ways to different persons, for so transmuting their capacities as to rendred them able to assist others in achieving some sort of metaphysical qualities; with specific persons to whom these processes has been applied mentioned, and a recommendation to me to check out the effects already applied in those particular persons whom I knew (at least one of which persons mentioned was a female relative of mine in the waking world). I was wondring muchly about just how these effects were applied, what the noticeable results were, and how they could be tranferred to other persons (such as myself) who might apply to them personally for such transferral. [Due to much wondring about this, I awoke. This may not have been the first occasion of such a puzzling, tantalizing description; but I may have not written up (after awakening) such dream-occasions praeviously after having awoken -- for the absence of known details, sufficient to bring about much uncertainty in me as to the significance of what was being described, hath typically deterred me from recording anything about such occasions in this dream-diary.] {In this case, before having fallen asleep for the night, I had been wondring (in the context of my writing comments about an occult book from which I had been taking notes, the recommendation to me (by Prof.Em. D.H.K., apparently when I called him in the hospital shortly before he died a few years ago) to read up (which I thereupon did prompty) about comments which had been recently published on the throne-room of Minos -- postmortem judge in the transitional realm for European souls of those who had just died. Because Minos also had a Labyrinth (reminiscent of one in in a pyramid-tomb for a dead pharoah prior to the standardized pyramid-tombs of the 5th dynasty), and because a labyrinth is under-construction (viewed by the congregation at the latest meeting) in the grounds of the local Soc of Fr, such current events could have resulted in such a dream.}

Nov 11th-12th (Tue-Wedn) 2014 :- Dream : We were aboard a special chartered flight of an ae:roplane, flying through the sky, when it began slowly wobbling to the left and to the right (rotating the fuselage somewhat, alternatingly countre-clockwise and clockwise). I wondred whether, whoever was the pilot was performing the wobbling purposely, or whether the ae:roplane was malfunctioning, and if malfunctioning whether such could lead to a fatal crash. Instead of walking to the cockpit to enquire from the pilot, I started thinking philosophically to myself that death is divinely foreordained and therefore cannot be considered as undesirable; and I thereupon considered it somewhat curious that I would be automatically thinking of death as thus beneficial, whereas I had not thitherto been customarily thinking in that way. [Musing over the desirability of this variant way of thinking, I awoke.]

Nov 14th-15th (Fri-Satur) 2014 :- Dream : I was experiencing an extended dream, which I was toward the end of it describing (to the last of the series of other persons who had been involved with it), as a series of events of a mysterious nature spread over the sequence of the last few days, and involving on each day my having been shewn by other persons of mysterious nature various containers which, when opened, were found to contain mysterious objects -- at the first a cylindrical jar which I opened to find within in a strange cylindrical device, and at the last a long (some 10 feet long) wooden shipping-container containing numerous paper boxes (one of which I opened to see that it contained lengths of twine). The cyclindrical device had been left with me under mysterious circumstances; and afterwards someone had shewn to me a winged device which was hovering nearby in the air (and which I grasped out of the air to determine how or why it was doing so, while remarking about its ability to hover and that it could be tested to determine whether it would hover when and as mentally requaested to do so). I was describing to the person to whom I was explaining the series, that I had read or been told that the series of events had been labeled "the Philadelphia Experiment". [Then, still wondring about whether I could understand the basis for this series of events, what my ro^le was in them, and what they might lead to, I awoke.] {"The Philadelphia Experiment" is the name for a large hoax perpetrated, apparently by a secret agency of the U.S. Foederal Government (during the 2nd World War) as a sort of psychological test (by the Office of Strategic Services, perhaps) of the general-public's gullibility, alleging impossible events concerning a U.S. Navy war-ship (destroyer) anchored at that time in Philadelphia harbor. It is supposedly associated with further apparent government-sponsored sytematic hoaxing (also during the 2nd World War and thereabouts) concerning an apparently praetended military manufacturing facility (supposedly underground!) at Montauk at the far east tip of Long Island. The winged device in the dream may have to do with AmerIndians' (whose religions often refer to birds) being referred to in the Montauk hoax.}

Nov 18th-19th (Tue-Wed) 2014 :- Dream : When repeatedly a golf ball landed beside me, I assumed that someone I had walked away from had thrown it in my direction, but whom I saw was too far away (on a prairie-field) to shout to. {The "golf balls" may have been intended a variant of the cosmic sphaires to be seen in LSD dreams. I have arleady been using a scene of such sphaires, each containing multiple round indentations (thus resembling golf balls) and hovering in space, as "screen saver" for my computer-monitor.} Then I saw a group of men, all clad in a uniform, suddenly appear in a clustre, at a similar distance on the same field; then they vanished. I called them a group of ghosts, when mentioning them to a man afterwards; he then said that they were wearing blue hats : I tried remembre the color of uniform (including hats) that they had been wearing, but could not, as the memory had already faded that much. {I had been reading, on the internet, the evening before, about ghosts witnessed in spirit-mediumship.}

Nov 23rd-24th (Sun-Mon) 2014 :- Dream : I was sitting in relative dimness (but slightly illuminated in a curious way along the closed door and panels of the wall which I was viewing) in what I considered to be my bedroom (I wondre whether I ever stayed in a bedroom of that appearance), listening to some quite sprightly music, and wondring whether I were perhaps asleep and dreaming. [Thus wondring, I awoke; it was as yet before midnight.] {I had left the music playing by loudspeakers from Last.fm; it was now on Corelli's La Folia (which is violin-music) played by Emilie Autumn, which is rather similar to what I was hearing in the dream.} {Earlier, that Sunday morning I had listened to a talk by Kevin Alexander Grey (who was introduced by G.R.) at the Soc of Fr meeting. Kevin remarked to me that he had not seen me in for some time; the occasion-before-last I had seen him had been at the cinema theatre then in the aedifice (former Democratic-Party headquarters) across the street from the state-capitol; when he remarked that he still had the book (which I had years before given to him) of reproductions of paintings by Alexander Grey. And the very last occasion, I had described to him (at a Democratic-Party-sponsored civil-rights rally at the state-capitol) along with G.R. (who had driven me thither) a dream wherein I had attended a rally with the speaker calling for the overthrow of the government (i.e., of the Republican-Party faction of the government).}

Nov 24th Mon 2014 :- Dream : I was praeparing to listen to a series of occult-type music-recordings which I was as yet in the process of selecting. [Then I awoke. It was in the process of becoming dark outside, a little before 6 P.M. I had fallen asleep (napping on a rug on the floor) in the afternoon before the usual starting up of music for me to from the internet at night while asleep.]

Nov 24th-25th Mon-Tue 2014 :- Dream : I was with a woman with whom I considered that I had been regularly associated. She was lying (clothed) with me on a bed, and told me to kiss her; so I started kissing her face. At another time I was in a room containing objects (on the floor) which I understood had been used by my father before he had died, and which I understood had been put on the floor by my mother so that she could thus remind herself of him -- one such object was what I understood to be a gyroscope of the type my father had kept repaired when he had worked for PanAmerican Airways in the 1950s. A while later a man whom I considered to be my father was praesent (I forgetting that I had just been thinking of him as having died), and he was making a jovial remark while he was brushing a wall-hanging (made of some sleek material) with his hand as he was walking bye; and a woman whom I considered to be my mother was likewise praesent and saw him doing this. I remarked to her that persons had to do activities of particualr types in order to keep themselves in pleasant moods. Then, thinking to myself that I could put myself in a better mood by embracing a woman, I asked to embrace her; but instead suddenly realized that if she were my mother, that would be inappropriate. So, I said to her that it was hard for me to remember to embrace the woman with whom I was regularly associated. So, I went into the next room to seek that woman again, and immediately found her sitting or lying on a bed or sofa there. [Thereupon, while wondring to myself just what I ought to do with her in order to put myself in a pleasant mood, I awoke.] {It is true that I seldom think of embracing or kissing a woman while I am in a dream, though I think of this topic often while awake (without the opportunity, however, to do so). Perhaps if I (or anyone else, for that matter) were to talk about it enough to other persons while awake, the thought of it would arise more often while in a dream.}

Dec 3rd-4th (Wedn-Thur) 2014 :- Dream : The dream seemed to have a dramatic quality to it. [When I awoke somewhat a]fter midnight, the music playing on Last.fm was ("Early Music tag") "Danza de las Espadas by Pedro Estevan, played by a Catalan (cf. KAT on the automobile licence-plate of G.R. & C.F., who had driven me the evening before to the state-capitol, where I began being as thorough with discarding my food container-labels as I had been every day during those years when I used to reside in the aedifice across the street from the state-capitol and used to visit thereat about an hour each day to eat) with the # of plays 1,429, ... -- the same as the last 4 digits of my Skype internet-telephone #. (Did that # cause me to awaken?)] {While I was being driven thither, she (C.F.) spelled out a name with /C/ instead of with /K/, just alike unto the spelling of the nationality (which was in the title, Homage to Catalun~a, on one of my parents phonograph-records which I used to play in Puerto Ordaz before leaving them in 1963) vis-a-vis the licence-plate. [About a week before, when they were visiting me in my apartment, I mentioned to her my intent to recommence my leaving food container-labels thereat, because (as I said) the Democratic Party had won the elections during the years when I was doing so, for a regular ritual thereat cause that (alluding to Columbia SC at the cause of the name of the District of Columbia); and she had then remarked that I had great expectations of producing such political results.] One time when we were at the state-capitol on a Wednesday, a young man there with us asked me whether my father (as an anarchist) had been at Barcelona (in Catalun~a) when I mentioned that he had been in the Spanish Civil War in 1938, and I answered affirmatively; then on returning home he asked, perhaps because my father had been a violinist, whether I would go a live music-performance (about to start) with him.}

Another dream, later in the same night : I was reading a printed account of named specialists in performing rituals, who were regularly performing named rituals on behalf of other persons (and for species of farm-animals, including "Samani for goats"). [Then I awoke.]

Dec 5th-6th (Fri-Satur) 2014 :- Dream : I was hearing music in the dream, and was thinking about what sort of bodily sensation (in the thorax) such music might cause. [Due to such wondring, I awoke. The music playing on my computer from the internet was African, recorded in Africa -- and African music is reputed to be associated with bodily sensations. The cinema (for the music) was entitled "Real African Orgy" (on ah-me.com), and its total duration was "1:16:00" -- cf. the "1160" address (in Hyde Park) of the woman (while my own address was instead "1116" in Lakeview -- do note that "11:16" was the duration of another cinema uploaded to the same site by the same person "Miguel...." alike to my name when I was in South America up to 1963 and only there used to visit whores at the whorehouse regularly) whom I used to visit in order to have sexual intercourse with her (after having found her by my advertising in the University of Chicago newspaper) : she told me that her husband had deserted her for a negress, and she had just before finding me been having sexual relations with a negro -- both she and her husband having shifted to sexual partners of negroid race on account of suggestions to do so by the Communist Party of the USA.]

Dec 8th-9th (Mon-Tue) 2014 :- Dream : I was hearing noise (from a source unknown), was puzzled by it. [Thereupon, I awoke : there was noise playing from the internet, a recording of a lengthy applause (by the audience) praeceding a performance of Lachrimae Antiquae.] {That recording was of duration 3:58, the same as my former rural-route postal address (358) in B., L. Co., GA : the # used to intrigue me, seeming to repraesent that the 3rd of the 5 regular geometric solids is 8-sided (octahedron, which had been the topic of the only lecture I had delivred to a local meeting of the Theosophical Society).}

Dec 12th-13th (Fri-Satur) 2014 :- Dream (before midnight) : I had arrived from outdoors at my apartment (whose entry-staircase was similar to that at 1116 B. Ave. in Lakeview neighborhood of Ch., IL, where I had resided in the early 1970s -- I did not remembre that I had moved out of there decades ago -- except that the staircase had been recently remodeled while I has been gone, with, supposedly, a new set of stairs laid atop (overlaid upon) the old ones, so that the landing at my apartment-storey was instead up-and-down steps). I had left music playing in my apartment, which I and my landlady could hear as soon I opened the apartment-door : she called to me from downstairs, saying that she was coming upstairs to make sure that I would suitably turn down the volume of the music. When she came into the apartment (whereof I did not notice the layout), we were at a sort of knob (set into a cabinet) which controlled the sound-volume, which (because it lacked a dial indicating increase or decrease) I tried adjusting, at first turning it in one direction (which increased the sound-volume), then in opposite direction, until it seemed to me a low-enough volume. Then, she continued standing there, apparently waiting to determine (by listening for a long-enough time) whether the volume was low-enough. At this point in time, I was noticing that the music was organ-music. [Thereupon, perhaps on account of waiting too long without further activity, I awoke.] {The music playing (from Last.fm) through the loudspeakers of my computer was by Duarte Lo^bo : "Introitus", in the album Portuguese Requiem Masses; and the # of plays was "17,116". Not only is this, except for the inserted "7", identical with that apartment's #, but also the composer's name "Lo^bo" was what my brother (S.A.R.) had chosen to call himself (for the song-refrain "Lobo, Wild Wolf" on one of our parents' phonograph-records) at P.O. in distrito Heres, estado B., Venezuela (some time before I left there in 1963); and, furthermore, my brother, years later (apparently when I went to stay at his apartment in S.S., MD suburb of D.C., at the conclusion of the Vietnam conflict c. 1975) repeatedly mentioned "7(A.M.)-11(P.M.)" convenience-stores locally. The # of years (between "before ... 1963" and now) may have been intended as 52 : 52 is the # of stairs (of the external staircases on both the front and rear of the state-capitol aedifice, which both of which I have been climbing each week during our [C.P.R.C.] demonstration-protest in front of the state-capitol each Wedn.), and the # for the year-cycle for overlaying Maya and Aztec pyramids.} {As for the name /Lo^Bo/ : cf. <ibri^ /LeB/ heart, Kemetic /jb/, at the judgement of souls balanced against a feather : and my brother (S.A.R.) had recently mentioned to me a dream of his (many years ago) of a black void containing a feather and a white whirlwind. There is a whirlwind (from the "North", cf. "North Pole", AK, former location of S.A.R.) at Dan. 11:40, and at 11:43 (cited by Strong) "Lubbi^", cf. /Lo^bo/.}

Dec 17th-18th (Wedn-Thur) 2014 :- Dream : Upon hearing a musical sound in my dream, I awoke. [It was daybreak, and playing on Last.fm was Zelenka - Requiem ZWV 48.] 

Dec 19th-20th (Fri-Satur) 2014 :- Dream : I had a bottle of perfumed water (having on it a Spanish-style label with picture of flowers), and told my mother that this was for sprinkling in a religious ritual. But, in response to my having said this, she poured out a gallon-container of apparently ordinary water onto the floor (which I thought she may have been doing in some exaggerated gesture, as an acted comment of hers). I noticed that another room (without furniture, but with wall-to-wall plain carpet) intervened between the room where she had done the outpouring and the door to the outside; so I told her that the water may take some time to evaporate while soaking into the carpet, and that meanwhile there may develop a stench from its becoming rancid. [Thereupon I awoke, having fallen asleep (as is often the case) at my desk.] {Just before falling asleep, I had read (in Pukui & Elbert : Hawaiian Dictionary) of 'strong odor, whether pleasant or unpleasant' as definition of /paoa/ (which I was considering as the meaning of name of Maori hero Paowa). Praesumably, this name had reminded some dream-god (who was evidently reading through mine eyen while I was as yet awake) of the town-name /Pa<u^/ (Strong's 6464) 'Screaming'; and I had just copied the day before (Dec. 19th) the quotation "characteristic screams (ila`)" from Brazeal's Brazil-article "The Fetish and the Stone" in Paul Christopher Johnson (ed.) : Spirited Things : the Work of "Possession" in Afro-Atlantic Religions, p. 143. /143/ is the digit-sequence on the Rudolph current automobile license-place.}

Dec 21st 2014 :- Not a dream : I received a telephone-call, the 1st one in more than a year (in between their telephone-# had been changed in its last digit) from my mother's half-sistre -- there had been a block on the praevious # on their end (so that I could not call them) -- and for the first time since she moved to FL, my mother and I were able to view each other via internet-telephone video-camera. Their area-code is 850. {A little earlier than day, I had quoted (for an article on a website of mine), a book published in 1850, concerning a sensation of an insect creeping on one's skin (and biting? -- I experienced this various occasions years afterwards, and always the biting was on my penis) : I had sensed this when I was residing in T.P., VA (suburb of DC); and shortly afterwards L.E. (the woman who was co-habiting with me thereat) likewise sensed the same, saying that the invisible insect was biting her on her back. (I then treated it with alcohol, which immediately banished the praeternatural insect.)}

Dec 25th-26th (Thur-Fri) 2014 :- Dream (shortly before midnight) : A man appeared in my kitchen, and commenced to rebuke me for something I had just done, which in considering what the rebuke must refer to, I realized that it must refer to an action which I had performed ina dream which I had just had. So, I realized that he must have witnessed that dream by having been it as a dream-spirit, and that he had emerged out of the dream-world into the waking-world (for, I erroneously thought that I was then awake). Then suddenly I noticed that because he was squatted inside one of the cabinets (in the one furthest to the right) under the counter to the sink in just the way a genie would be if confined within a bottle, he must be now able to function as a genie. I realized that I would have to make some statement aloud so as to retain that genie confined there, so that I would be able thenceforth to invoke that genie to accomplish magical work for me. So, I said aloud : "From a dream : that is to remain, sealed dead!" Then immediately there was an exploding sound from that cabinet, breaking its door off from its hinges -- but, so as to ensure that whatever might remain of it would not escape, I thrust its door back into its cabinet-space, and white powdre floated forth in a cloud in the air, which I at first surmised must be ghostly; but when I looked, I saw that it was coming from a cardboard box, which figured must have been collided with this cabinet-door, and I thought that I remembred that an ordinary white powdre of sorts had been stored in that box, so I was somewhat disappointed that the effect was not ghostly. [Then, while contemplating this disappointment, and (because I was wondring whether my in-breathing of the white powdre could be deleterious) endeavouring to remembre just what that white powdre had been which had been stored there, I awoke.] {Just before falling asleep, I had been thinking that a conventional understanding of some myth about an explosion might be wrong, that it may have been a puffball, which on exploding must yield its spores in the form of black powdre, and I had just been writing or considering variability between black and white in religious symbolism (in particular, in the all women's being clothed in black or in white or in black-and-white in the dance party which I had watched the night of Dec 24th-25th at http://hypelife.tv/fame-floss-green-and-black-2k14-party-video/ though at least one of them, and several men, was wearing green -- perhaps this impressed me by seeming as it were to refer to the Green Party in national politics, now that the Green Party would seem to have supplant the United Citizens' Party). The green of the clothing was apparently intended to contrast with the red (similar to that of a Taoist temple's interior walls) of the party-chambre walls. I would naturally be thinking in terms of the political Tea Party (started by Ron Paul -- incidentally the evening before, Dec 25th, my brother who is an advocate for Ron Paul's party had been praising to me over the internet-telephone Ron Paul's deprecation of the Foederal Reserve Board, involving creating greenback money without pretious-metal reserve-backing) which is advocating return to the costumes worn in the American Revolutionary War of 1776 onwards, when Whig patriots wore green to contrast with Tories' red. Perhaps the rebuke addressed to me could have had to do with my neglect to mention that the Green Party could somehow also incorporate red in its office.}

Dec 26th-27th (Fri-Satur) 2014 :- Dream : We were at a site where an incipient commune-colony was being founded, grouped around a permanently-parked (beside some source of water) automobile, which I also was circumambulating (while touching it with my hands) as a standard ritual of membreship. {Evidently derived from the permanently-parked trailers as the basis of the commune at "The Farm" (founded by Stephen Gaskin) in Tennessee.}

Another dream, later the same night : There was a group of persons, a sort of "intentional community" (discussing possibilities for establishing a commune), using as a theme a large map (at least a couple of yards wide by some four yard long, in the section of it which they had displayed -- extending from Mexico to about Ecuador, which I figured they were using on account of this geographical area's proximity to where we were located in the U.S. of A.) laid on the ground as a basis for illustrating their discussion. Next episode of dream : Another map even more detailed, a relief-map, with the mountain-areas a couple of feet tall where I was walking on them : I was standing on the repraesentation of the Parima Mountainrange between Venezuela and Brazil while I being offered a check for money on account of there being known to the group that I was the most needy membre. I replied (while standing a couple of feet above ground level on that map's mountainrange) saying that although I had use for some things, money was not something that I had need of (though I could not think of just what I had need of, or I might have mentioned it), and that they might as well tear up the check for money which they were offering to me. [Thereupon I awoke. I soon apparently fell asleep again and experienced another dream, and awoke again, but forgot that other dream instantly as soon as I rolled my body over.] {I had the evening before mentioned to one the brother of mine in METAire about the fact that the name of his town of residence in similar to the name of the river META` forming a border of Venezuela and reached by the expedition of Ordaz, name of the town (Puerto Ordaz) of his nativity. I had had a money-check in mind the day before (Fri) on account of my bank's having as yet listed it as uncleared when G.R. had called me that morning to ask me about it when I was due to have to use it to buy food that day (but the bank's charge-card turned out to clear afterwards anyway, perhaps because of the overdraft-provision which he had set to draw on my account on the other bank in the case of lack of funds in the bank of the charge-card).}

Dec 28th-29th (Sun-Mon) 2014 :- Dream : I had just taken residence in an apartment, wherein I understood (been told?) that I was co-resident with another man. I heard canine sounds, so I said that he was making them. Then I heard other sounds, and said aloud that he was making them also. [Then, wondring just where the putative co-resident was, I awoke.] {I had read the evening before, in Sexual Encounters with Extraterrestrials (Timeless Voyager Pr, 2001), p. 22, of "their speech" which "sounded ... like a succession of barks ... made by a dog" being uttered by an extraterrestrial persons. This was the testimony of Antonio Villas Boaz (in Brazil; the surname is FreeMasonic as spelled), concerning whom my father had once (decades ago) sent to me a print-off from the internet about the same episode (which I had, however, probably had already read mention of). Also, on Sunday, P.E.P., when she had parked upon driving me home from the Soc. of Fr. meeting, was asking me about my father's beliefs. She had expressed interest in that book (which I had shewn to her in the Soc. of Fr. aedifice), which was why I had just started to read it then, yesterday evening.}
