I am wandering through a shadowy underground temple that seems to be somewhere in Ancient Egypt – it feels like some type of RPG or shoot em up style game.
Two monsters appear and chase me into a room full of larvae – I feel cornered – but I escape into the main hall where I meet my mate – Colm – who is standing upon a stone altar acting as a priest.
He tells me that I am to be crowned Pharaoh for the mutual benefit of the game – and upon hearing this I begin eating nuts from a basket to my left – I am told that this is in preparation for the crowning ritual.
I crack open a peanut and a voice says: “The green ones will make you green”.
I look into the peanut and see that they are both green – I call this synchronicity. I then pick up some square nuts and crack them as macadamia nuts.
Seeing that I have become distracted by the nuts – Colm draws my attention to the ritual. I look back at the altar again as two solitary witnesses arrive.
Colm then prepares the altar and looks at me saying: “On what code we have agreed?”
I pause and press my thumb into the altar stone as a musical note plays in my mind. The note inspires a feeling in me and I say: “That all men shall be free to pursue their own course”.
Then I awaken.
30 – April – 2015
This dream carries great weight in it’s amazing power of prophecy.
Myself and my mate Colm always enjoyed a good discussion about philosophy and intellectual ideas. Both of us – while on our own separate paths over the past few years – have formed quite perceptive views on reality.
We began to really discuss these ideas openly around nine months ago – or it is better to say – we began to understand each others perspectives with more depth around this time. This dream – which is over a year old – seems to predict this flowering of understanding.
Symbolically – we have me as a Ruler being crowned by Colm who is a priest.
The whole purpose of a priest is to specialize in ideas – they are the ancestral role of the modern academic. The Pharaoh or King on the other hand would be the one to live out the ideals determined valuable by the priest.
“The Game” – or at least the setting of the dream within a “game” – is a symbol of reality as a system with rules.
If you accurately can determine the rules of the game – reality – then you will make the correct choices and thus wield power. The priest here represents intellect as the informant to the King who is the decision making Ego.
If the priest is correct in his interpretation of the rules of the game – then the King will wield great power and improve the standard of the game for all the players – or in other words: “the mutual benefit of the game.”
It seems that I – here represented quite egotistically as the Pharaoh – have been deemed capable of understanding the rules of this game and to what end they need to be manipulated. When queried by Colm as to what ethic I will use to guide my actions I respond: “That all men shall be free to pursue their own course.”
