This is in response to QuanumPhysica’s dream(s) described here. QuanumPhysica is a blog friend, although this response does not imply to endorse the views found on her blog.

Also, this does not imply that I or anyone else can be an interpreter of dreams – as I stated in the comments at the post above:

Daniel 2:26-28 NLT

The king said to Daniel (also known as Belteshazzar), “Is this true? Can you tell me what my dream was and what it means?”

Daniel replied, “There are no wise men, enchanters, magicians, or fortune-tellers who can reveal the king’s secret. But there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets, and he has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will happen in the future. Now I will tell you your dream and the visions you saw as you lay on your bed.

…for kings & queens & plain people like you and me, the same applies that Daniel told the king.

Also, I offered QuanumPhysica an interpretation, that may or not be inspired of the living God – but as far as I can contribute based on biblical themes that seem to correspond to the imagery in her dreams. You can pitch in your thoughts if you happen upon this post (which will be back-dated to the date of her post) and if you have bible-based comments to add.

Next follows the dream, as she describes…

I dream of walking over a chessboard, black and white. It is night, the sky is strangely blue. The huge moon shines yellow on me, like a lamp. I hear whispering, like talking in the distance. I walk towards it. In front of me floats an oval mirror. It isn’t a mirror because I can’t see myself but I still feel it is actually a mirror. A Talking Mirror. One side is bright red, the other side is bright blue. The whisperings are coming from that mirror. I try to understand it, but I can’t. They whisper contradictions, one side means this, the other side means the opposite. They are right nor wrong, and both at the same time. Suddenly, the ground trembles. A purple tree sprouts from the ground, and at first I think it has leaves, but actually those are eyes. The eyes stare at me, they speak to me. “Listen to us! Listen to us! You have to listen to us! Follow our directions! Obey us!” There is blood, dripping from the sky. I start running from the Tree of Eyes, and I end up in this forest, with pink trees, like apple trees. Only the apples aren’t fruit, they are big bloodshot eyeballs.

The chessboard floor becomes a piano, a stairs. I climb it, and while climbing I hear the tunes of Erik Satie’s Gnossienne no. 1, like a sign of approaching doom. The piano stairs curls around a chain, a giant pocket watch from which blood is coming.   I hear it tick, it’s ticking to the rhythm of the song I play by walking the piano stairs.

Then, I don’t know what happens. Suddenly I’m tied by both my hands on a branch of the Tree of Eyes. Around me, all these clocks hang, golden pocket watches. Blood drips from them, forms a pool on the ground, a sea even. The chessboard is covered. The Tree of Eyes sounds complaining, the Gnossienne resounds deformed on the background. The blood is rising, I can almost feel it touch my feet. I cry, I can’t help but cry, my hands hurt, my head hurts, I can’t escape. I’m doomed.

Dreams: A series of images or thoughts experienced in one’s mind while asleep. A means by which a divine message may be conveyed while the recipient sleeps. God may communicate directly in the dream, or interpretation may be necessary.

Direct communication through dreams: Ge 31:24 See also Ge 20:3,6; 1Sa 28:6,15; 1Ki 3:5,15; Job 33:14-15; Mt 1:20; 2:12-13,19-20,22

Dreams involving unusual images: Ge 28:12-15; 31:10-13; 37:5-7,9; 40:9-11,16-17; 41:1-7; Jdg 7:13; Da 2:31-35; 4:10-17

God is the source of interpretation of such dreams: Da 2:26-28 See also Ge 40:8; 41:15-16,25,28; Da 4:24

Interpretation of unusual images: Ge 40:12-13,18-19; 41:26-31; Jdg 7:14-15; Jer 23:28; 31:23-26; Da 2:36-45; 4:19-26

The sky is strangely blue.

If red represents the netherworld & blue the heavens (also represented by white = light & black = darkness later), this could mean that this is a time of heavenly favour & granted opportunity. “Strangely” seems to indicate this is a temporary condition. The theme of light & darkness (good & evil) recurs throughout the dream.

Walking over a chessboard & black & white.

Black & white represents light & darkness (as mentioned) – essentially, in this context, choices & is strongly emphasized by the chess game – the choices in the moves made. It seems that the opponent in the chess game is far superior in skill – to such an extent that the choices seem like a chess game, but that in reality the is no possibility of winning by human means … more on that later.

Huge moon shines yellow on me.

The sun is (represents) the ruler of the day (good), the moon is the ruler of night (evil). As it it written:

And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars. – Gen 1:16

The dream indicates a current condition of “huge nightly rule” – thus more dominion of the forces of darkness – which is obvious by the general mood of the dream also.

Two Hebrew words are translated “yellow.” Charuts (Ps. 68:13) refers to gold strongly alloyed with silver or the sallow colour of sick skin (Lev. 13:49).

Yellow may mean the sickly light on you is due to this reason. Likely, when the bondage of darkness is broken, your illness (yellow light) would also dissolve before the midday sun.

It isn’t a mirror because I can’t see myself but I still feel it is actually a mirror. One side is bright red, the other side is bright blue.

This is likely not a mirror, but yourself you are seeing. The purpose of every human is to operate as a mirror – but the mirror you saw was ‘broken’. A mirror obviously essentially functions as a reflector of light. This is all it can do. The light cannot come from within the mirror, there is no light within – the light has to come from elsewhere. We have to be “a light to the world”, but we need light from somewhere to be able to do that. If you have no light to reflect you only have darkness to offer – hence nothing, as far as things the mirror can ‘worth with’ or the observer can see. If blue represents the heavenlies & red the netherworld you see within yourself (i.e. the mirror) the only thing you can do. Choose.

The whisperings are coming from that mirror. I try to understand it, but I can’t. They whisper contradictions, one side means this, the other side means the opposite.

As stated below, spiritual confusion is humanity’s natural state. Mankind cannot thrive in a world where equal opportunity for & knowledge of evil exists. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil was out of limits (and whether or not this is figurative is another topic – the symbolism is clear & intended anyway). Mankind thought to know better, but did & is still reaping the reward due to that choice. Unless God intervenes (and we choose life), we are bound to choose evil. This is aptly illustrated by “PF Project – Choose Life“.

Choose your future; Choose life; I chose not to choose life; I chose something else;

What is the alternative to life? Why choose it? The song certainly makes it sounds like a fashionable choice these days.

Banishing of this kind of confusion is the domain of God.

The Spirit on the Waters
The earth, as it first rose out of the void at God’s command, was a mere huddled mass, a chaos of atoms heaped confusedly together. It was wholly unlike the world which smiles about us to-day, fixed in form, clothed with verdure, and teeming with busy life. The confused mass must at first have rolled onward amid unspeakable tumult. Profoundly impressive is the thought that God’s creative power was still active throughout this monstrous pandemonium. Of this we have divine assurance in the second beautiful verse of the Bible narrative. The earth was formless, it was empty of life; darkness covered its black deeps. Yet the Spirit of God was there – “…and God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”

Confusion: A state of perplexity, bewilderment or disorder. Confusion may be brought about by God to cause the schemes of the wicked to fail and opposition to his people to prove ineffective. Confusion over spiritual truth is the natural state of humanity; believers, too, may be perplexed by God’s purposes or thrown into confusion by false teaching.

God sends confusion as judgement:

They are right nor wrong, and both at the same time.

This is certainly like the lie of the serpent in Genesis 3 – the fact is that much of the lie was truth so that it was very hard to see the < 1% of poison in what the serpent said – by means of illustration (brodifacoum, as rat poison: 0.27—0.30 mg/kg = 0.03%).

“You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (extract from quote below)

Note that:

  1. They did not die immediately – except in terms of spiritual death, which is not plainly humanly discernible.
  2. Their eyes were opened & they did know good & evil afterwards.
  3. They were ?more? like God in some sense as can be seen in Gen 3:22.

Yet, this ‘development’ was not good, as the serpent suggested & takes some reflection outside of the scope of this post to know why that is the case.

Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’ ” But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths.

Genesis 3:22: Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil. Now, lest he reach out his hand and take also of the tree of life and eat, and live forever—” therefore the Lord God sent him out from the garden of Eden to work the ground from which he was taken. He drove out the man, and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim and a flaming sword that turned every way to guard the way to the tree of life.

Genesis 11:5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of man had built. And the Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them.

The eyes stare at me, they speak to me. “Listen to us! Listen to us! You have to listen to us! Follow our directions! Obey us!”

Most plainly eyes represent knowledge. In Scripture eyes are often associated with light, watchfulness or spiritual understanding, whereas blindness may be a metaphor for darkness, ignorance of God or rebellion against him. The eyes of God watch over all his creation.

God’s eyes symbolise his assessment of human behaviour: Ge 6:8 See also Ex 15:26; Jdg 2:11; 1Ki 15:5; 2Co 8:21

God sees the hearts and thoughts of people: Ge 6:5 See also 1Sa 2:3; Ps 139:1-4,23-24; Pr 15:11; Jer 20:12; Mt 6:8,18; Lk 16:15; Heb 4:13; 1Jn 3:20

Apocalyptic pictures involving numerous eyes: (Ezek. 1:18; 10:12; Rev. 4:6), likewise, reassure of God’s awareness of His people’s plight wherever they might be.

God’s Eye(s): God’s eye or eyes is a frequent picture of God’s providential care. God guides with His eye (Ps. 32:8), that is, gives counsel while offering His watch care. Deliverance from death and famine result from God’s watchful eye (Ps. 33:18–19). The image of God’s eye(s) roving throughout the earth (2 Chron. 16:9; Prov. 15:3; Jer. 16:17) symbolizes God’s knowledge of all human activity and His control over it. Apocalyptic pictures involving numerous eyes (Ezek. 1:18; 10:12; Rev. 4:6), likewise, reassure of God’s awareness of His people’s plight wherever they might be.

There is blood, dripping from the sky. I start running from the Tree of Eyes, and I end up in this forest, with pink trees, like apple trees. Only the apples aren’t fruit, they are big bloodshot eyeballs.

Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? – Psalm 139:7

Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the Lord. Do I not fill heaven and earth? declares the Lord. – Jeremiah 23:24

It seems that you are trying to run from the knowledge of God. His knowledge is inescapable. You cannot deny His knowledge of you but you can choose not to have knowledge of Him – at your own peril.

Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.” – Jeremiah 9:23

The chessboard floor becomes a piano, a stairs. I climb it, and while climbing I hear the tunes of Erik Satie’s Gnossienne no. 1, like a sign of approaching doom. The piano stairs curls around a chain, a giant pocket watch from which blood is coming.   I hear it tick, it’s ticking to the rhythm of the song I play by walking the piano stairs.

As mentioned above – “…it seems that the opponent in the chess game is far superior in skill – to such an extent that the choices seem like a chess game, but that in reality the is no possibility of winning by human means … more on that later.”

Since the chessboard transforms to a piano you are not actually a contender in a chess game, but merely dancing by the tune of the pied piper, as if in a trance – the chess game likely merely an illusion.

The ticking clocks seems to clearly indicate there is limited remaining time … or at least that time is passing – and for what purpose does anyone highlight passing time except for the notion that “time of of the essence” & should not be wasted. On to the next seeming theme – the music you are playing while walking on the piano steps…

I hear it tick, it’s ticking to the rhythm of the song I play by walking the piano stairs.

Eric Satie’s work was a precursor to later artistic movements such as minimalism, repetitive music, and the Theatre of the Absurd. The Theatre of the Absurd is a designation for particular plays of absurdist fiction written by a number of primarily European playwrights in the late 1960s, as well as one for the style of theatre which has evolved from their work. Their work expressed the belief that human existence has no meaning or purpose and therefore all communication breaks down. Logical construction and argument gives way to irrational and illogical speech and to its ultimate conclusion, silence.

As we discussed before, the atheist worldview is void of objective purpose (page password ‘open’). Thus, the music seems to be highlighting “the belief that [atheist] human[ist] existence has no [objective] meaning or purpose“.

Suddenly I’m tied by both my hands on a branch of the Tree of Eyes. Around me, all these clocks hang, golden pocket watches. Blood drips from them, forms a pool on the ground, a sea even. The chessboard is covered. The Tree of Eyes sounds complaining, the Gnossienne resounds deformed on the background. The blood is rising, I can almost feel it touch my feet. I cry, I can’t help but cry, my hands hurt, my head hurts, I can’t escape. I’m doomed.

Notable here is that the “Tree of Eyes” is on your side – it (He, if we know that this is God) is clearly sad at your eventual fate … and this matches biblically also. God does not rejoice even when the wicked is punished righteously for what they have done. Even if we don’t know why this judgement scenario has been illustrated to you, we know that it is not God’s will that it would happen … and it is not guaranteed to happen – see the judgement of king Hezekiah & how his ‘death sentence’ was lifted to have several more years to live.

Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked, declares the Lord God, and not rather that he should turn from his way and live? – Ezekiel 18:23

  1. Amazing…
    You truly baffled me with this.
    Thank you for this. Thank you very much.
    I can’t say it is making me more religious, but I can sure say it has opened my eyes to what it might mean. I find it really amazing you did this for me.
