I've always been fascinated by dreaming and this book has strengthened my eagerness to explore the subject. And while some may toss the work aside because they can't keep an open mind (or think there's not much to be gained from a book so short), it's quite intriguing if you're prepared to give it a chance. Oddly enough, I like the fact that it raises many questions without offering concrete solutions because that forces us to come up with our own. Many of these ideas, which have been the subject of several films, include the following:
1. Can we communicate with the dead in our dreams?
Raizizun explains that death is only the end of the physical body but not the end of the "mechanism of consciousness which is the seat of thought and emotion". Raizizun also explains that we can meet and converse with many of the "misnamed dead" when we go to sleep, just as if they were alive. But how do we know that we're communicating with our long-gone loved ones and not simply experiencing subconscious symbols of what they represent? And is the only way to communicate with the dead when we're asleep (Bruce Willis and his wife at the end of The Sixth Sense) or can some gifted "mystics and sages" do so while they're still awake (Matt Damon using the power of touch in Hereafter)? I honestly don't know.
2. Can dreams predict the future and warn us of doom?
"The ego is ever watchful and it always impresses the lower mind when danger approaches," Raizizun points out. "The extent [to] which we are guided and warned from the ego depends [on] how much we are not swayed by our physical methods of artificial civilisation implying the power to impress the astral experience on the physical brain." But can we actually alter what's supposed to be?Read more ›
