Dream-diary, April 2018

April 1st ( Sun during daytime) :- not a dream : When, in leaving my apt in order to be transported (driven by S.P.) to the SocOfFr meeting, I arrived at the elevator, the elevator-car was already there, with its door standing open -- a curious circumstance which I have not found praeviously, and which I immediately attributed to praeternatural intervention (as though I had some praeternatural assistance in this intendedly-welcoming convenience being somehow performed for me, perhaps by some unworldly entity intent on confirming me to be respectful towards the SocOfFr, viz., toward spiritual attainments of whomever particular meditators therein).

April 1st-2nd (Sun-Mon) 2018 :- Dream : I was perceiving a certain way of using, and a particular way of forming, nutritional supplements.

April 7th (Satur during daytime) 2018 :- Dream : I was viewing a printed group of words; then I saw the same group of words inserted into a sentence where it evidently did not, and could not, meaningfully belong. [Then I awoke.] {Such insertion can happen inadvertently, by accidentally pressing Control "V" while typing. I had earlier in the praeceding night (6th-7th), after awaking from sleep, gone by elevator to talk with the man at the downstairs (main floor lobby) desk overnight, who was then telling me that although he is designating himself as "Christian", he also is accepting of the truths of other religions. I myself have so little faith that there is any validity to Christianity at all (as I have often told to other persons, Christian delight in seeing God being tortured to death cannot make for any religiosity, but instead for must make for a blasphemy, which must be what Christianity actually is), so that any insertion of Christianity into any other religion would be quite out-of-place, alike to inserting a sequence of words into sentence where it cannot meaningfully belong.}

April 8th (Sun during daytime) 2018 :- Dream : I was repeatedly making an effort to type up a version of notes, with comments, on the nature of the soul. {I had been doing just this in the waking-world, when I had fallen asleep at my computer-desk.}

April 8th-9th (Sun-Mon) 2018 :- Dream : Within an aedifice, a woman, naked above her waist, was seated on the floor in front of me and facing away from me. I pushed her body forward (so that she was reclined prone on the floor), and reached with both of my hands under her body so that each of my hands was clutching one of her teats. I was pleased that she did not attempt to hindre this. [Then I awoke.]

April 9th-10th (Mon-Tue) 2018 :- Dream : I was inspecting the result of an exorcism of an aedifice's apartment. The exorcism had been performed by means of ritual emptying-of-contents from the four corners within the apartment, combined with leaving a carton containing a dozen eggs along the interior of each of the four walls connecting those corners of the apartment. [I did not remembre awaking, and at first thought that this dream-memory of the emptying of the four corners had somehow arising after I had awoken; but when I also remembred viewing the carton-containing-eggs, the memory of this was so vivid, that I realized that it must be the memory of a just-recently-experienced dream.] {A standard conventional exorcism of an apartment (or house) will consist of placing salt in its four corners; and a ritual cleansing (from spiritual uncleanness) of a person's body will usually consist (in West Africa) of stroking that person's body with an egg. Much as in the southwest region of North America reside the Hopi, who muchly employ eggs (of parrot) in their religious rites, so likewise West Africa can be considered as the southwest corner of the connected-continental Old World : goddess praesiding over the southwest is Nirr.ti, whose name (usually meaning 'disorder' or even 'decay') may signify 'absence of' (hence the emptying of corners in the dream); [WIKIPEDIA article "Nirr.ti" https://wikivisually.com/wiki/Nir%E1%B9%9Bti] "one hymn ([R.c Veda] X.59) ... asks for her in departure from the sacrificial site" (hence the connection of her with exorcism-rites). As goddess praesiding in the world of the dead (S`ata-patha Brahman.a V.2.3.3), she could possibly be associated with god Marta-an.d.a (usually translated 'dead egg', but may be regarded as "egg of mortals" :- Antonio T. De Nicolás : Meditations Through the Rig Veda : Four-Dimensional Man, p. 112

https://books.google.com/books?id=t7mNaMDu6o0C&pg=PA112&lpg=PA112&dq= -- possibly as the material universe-as-egg resided in by mortals, contrasting with Brahma-an.d.a as subtle universe-as-egg resided in by immortals) the 8th son of goddess Aditi. Hiran.ya-garbha ('golden embryo') is considered to reside, as embryonic form of god Praja-pati, within the brahma-an.d.a; but, seemingly, goddess Mr.tyu ('death') is the divine resident in the Marta-an.d.a.}

April 10th-11th (Tue-Wedn) 2018 :- Dream : I was telling to another person the dream which I had recently experienced (involving my hearing music), when I suddenly realized that I was, as of yet, asleep. [Soon I did, in actuality, waken.]

April 11th-12th (Wedn-Thur) 2018 :- Dream : I was reading printed litteature discussing differences in use of various praepositional phrases in mentioning some particular type of meditation; and afterwards I was observing several different women's reactions (in the way of their facial expression and of their gesture) to pictorial depictions illustrating use of these praepositional phrases for such particular type of meditation. [Then I awoke.] {After awaking, I was considering the likelihood that I would mainly dream of reading about, or looking at pictures of (or as in this case, viewing other persons speechless facial expressions or gestures), some sort of method of healing or of contemplating, whenever I would ingest (without the other dream-enhancing substances) only damiana during the day praeceding my sleeping at night; whereas there would be a likelihood that I would mainly dream of my discussing aloud with other persons such topics (of healing or of contemplating) whenever I would ingest the various other dreaming-enhancing substances along with the damiana. The week-day when I would most consistently omit ingesting any other dream-enhancing substances along with the damiana would be Wednesdays, because my being with other persons (persons having very little interest in dreaming) at the weekly protest (holding signs in front of the state-capitol aedifice) is not an inducement to my hoping for, and therefore ingesting substances to enhance, dreaming. But I could ingest all those substances together before (prior to; for, it ought be a priority) my going out to that weekly protest in the late afternoon.}

April 12th-13th (Thur-Fri) 2018 :- Dream : I was concerned with the need to keep a standard set of URLs for easy access to internet-websites, at least in regard to music to be played from the internet. [When I awoke, the album whi\ch was playing on my computer from the internet, on pandora.com, was https://www.pandora.com/artist/novospassky-monastery-choir/russian-chant-for-vespers/troparia-for-amomos/TRfq6X4g7lxz42m : a set of musical tropes.}

April 15th-16th (Sun-Mon) 2018 :- Dream : It was quite dim in my apartment, so I stepped out into the external corridor : there I saw, in the dimness, two women standing just outside the door to the next apartment (to the right of my apartment) on my side of the corridor. Figuring that they would feel intimidated to see me suddenly emerge so close to them in the dimness, I immediately stepped back into my apartment; but soon, on further consideration, I decided that they would be unlikely to feel intimidated by me, under the circumstances. [Then, suddenly, I awoke.]

[Later dream, same night] (It was now not dim.) A female relative of mine (apparently my mother) was visiting my apartment, and next went with me in the external corridor to an office located at the far end of that corridor (unlike my waking-world current aedifice-of-residence, which hath an office for the aedifice only on its ground-storey, not at the end of the corridor for that storey), and started asking the woman in that office to tell some woman-resident in another apartment on the storey to cease from doing something bothersome. The office-woman said, "Do you have some money?"; thus indicating that she would expect to be given a bribe before instructing the woman-resident. My female relative asked me for money, so I handed to her whatever money I had on me, consisting of a $20 bill and two $10 bills; but she did not hand any of these to the woman in the office, so I wondred whether she did not regard these as enough of a bribe. [Then I awoke.]

April 18th-19th (Wedn-Thur) 2018 :- Dream : I was viewing artistically-designed forms of writing.

April 19th-20th (Thur-Fri) 2018 :- Dream : While I was kissing on a woman's mouth, she paused to indicate that she would like to cease from kissing; but I said to her, "I like kissing a black woman" (this woman whom I was kissing being a negress), so we continued kissing [until, very soon, I awoke].

April 22nd-23rd (Sun-Mon) 2018 :- Dream : I was typing notes from a book about mythology, with my comments added. {I had been engaged in this activity, when I fell asleep at my computer-desk well-after midnight.}

April 27th-28th (Fri-Satur) 2018 :- Dream : I was praeparing an index-page for uploading onto the internet.

April 29th-30th (Sun-Mon) 2018 :- Dream : I was typing up, from occult lore, an instance which cycled (with sequence of events running in a circle).
