Interpreting dreams

Loud exclamations are throbbing in my brain awakened by the lifelike apparitions flitting through my dreams. I open my eyes gingerly trying to gently untangle astral projection from the palpable. The two are intertwined, stuck together; one is incomplete without the other. Life is erected out of moments of closeness, bright flashes across the empty dark sky; the rest are building blocks lovingly supplied by a desperate fantasy. So tangible, and yet the remoteness of the possibility can make you cry.

How genuine is the reality perceived through a highly subjective filter of human consciousness? Words said in passing laid as groundwork for a lifelong chase for something ephemeral. An image overlaid with the intensity of teenage feelings sanctified for an eternity with no regard for the truth.

(Does a tree make a sound if it falls and there is no one to hear it?)

So who says it is not real just because it’s in my head?

Drift with me...

Animal magnetism

The story of my life (from here).  You open up to someone, confide in them, let them peak behind the veil.  And then the same information that brought you closer together is turned into a dagger to stab you with.

The hedgehog's dilemma, is an analogy about the challenges of human intimacy. It describes a situation in which a group of hedgehogs all seek to become close to one another in order to share their heat during cold weather. However, once accomplished, they cannot avoid hurting one another with their sharp quills. They must step away from one another. Though they all share the intention of a close reciprocal relationship, this may not occur for reasons which they cannot avoid.
