- Can dreams be associated with the unforeseen future?
- Which dragons, if any, will you breed this event?
- I like to think that a dream we visualize in our sleep acts as a portent or a harbinger of something groundbreaking that is about to happen in our lives, for the better or for the worse; something of a shift in the events of our lives, a shift which we may or may not be aware of when the time comes. Perhaps the dreams we have don’t picture the literal turn of events, but they show symbols of how everything will fall into place by conveying a message or arranging a puzzle. For instance, one might have a particular scene in a dream where oneself stands regally in the wind at the top of a castle after vanquishing an entire army in battle with nothing but a string of faith and hopelessly incompetent soldiers, celebrating with a final “hurrah”, which would symbolize freedom from something oppressive that is recurring in their normal life, although they may not catch the correlation by the time they awaken. It’s one of those wily tricks that the mind plays on its host.
For another example, one may dream of a drought being ended by an unexpected downpour, washing the sands with water for the first time in eons, and bringing verve back to the hopeless people who rely on the forces of nature to survive. This could be symbolic of a flood of fortunate events happening to the dreamer in their own future life, which they’d make it to if they never lost hope; it could be saying that, assuming the dreamer is already well down that dark path, they should turn back and take the light path so that all of the finer things can (and will) pour down on them as well. It’s a grand epiphany.
In summary, I do believe that most dreams have some slight correlation to the real world, and more specifically to one’s own future in it. Dreams are pictures, and all pictures have meaning; we wouldn’t be able to interpret pictures if they had no meaning. Doubtless to say, we likely wouldn’t even have pictures if we didn’t first have meaning as their foundation, so therefore, we wouldn’t have dreams, and what those dreams mean for our futures would be baseless because we also wouldn’t have time. Everything in existence is based on meaning; without meaning, the world would be a blank canvas; there would be no pictures, so there would be no dreams. That’s why the world of a nihilist is blank (perhaps dark) and lifeless; no meaning equals no reality. The definition of meaning, and what it truly means to mean something, is a question for another time, however.
- I will be breeding Caligos, and hopefully half of Asuri, depending on whether or not I decide it’s best to preserve the rest of my egg tokens left over from Caligos. The goal is to shoot up to Lumestry for the Arcanum hut eggs that he offers so that I can make it into the safe zone (Artisan tier, where I should no longer be oppressed in fortification events by the weight of Builders Hut Eggs).
