As most readers know, there is going to be a new face to the National Dream Center website. This old site has grown well out of it’s usefulness, and it was built in a modular manner, which makes it confusing to navigate.
The new site will only have one login requirement for dreams, forum, and blog responses. It’s hard to … Read more
The NDC’s proposal was accepted by the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD). That means that I will be handed the microphone and stage on Sunday, June 5th during this year’s annual IASD conference as I present some of our statistics and lessons learned from Project August. This marks a concrete turn in our journey exploring collective … Read more
On October 19, 2014, one of the most mysterious DreamBot runs took place, and one of the linguistics phrases that stood out (but the translation was impossible to ascertain at the time) was “American theater football escaping religious asteroid.” As it would turn out, each of the big words in that linguistics would get time in the limelight, and … Read more
Welcome to 2015….another year to remember. How do I know? Well, truthfully, I don’t. But if history is any guide (especially with all the stats we’ve been keeping), then our recent dream initiative called Project Año should give us about an 80-90% look at what the next 365 days might bring us.
Starting in November of 2014, dreamers … Read more
2014 was a remarkable year with some pretty big headlines the world over. China passes the US in the size of its economy, the Spanish king steps down from his throne, and the western US states struggled through one of the biggest droughts in history. These were just a few of the bombshell headlines that were correctly derived from dream … Read more
As the elves are quietly wrapping up the 2014 predictions into a Top Ten list and our DreamForecasters are working overtime trying to derive predictions for the coming year (from the Project Año dreams and linguistics), I thought I’d take some time to document what 2015 might look like with respect to the NDC’s mission and internal operations.
I think … Read more
Mission P1_12 was established to investigate some of the memes that developed from a rather unusual sequence of DreamBot runs. Six days ago, on 12/12, the NDC experienced a most weird degradation in the DreamBot to where it was working at only about 40-50% capacity. But despite that, the bot managed to pick up some clear memes at the Red … Read more
There’s no word in the history of DreamBot that has been so determined and pesky as the word Agent. There’s no doubt that the collective unconscious has been seeing this story developing, and so we’ll explore the long linguistics trail. We’ll look at the word Agent to pull out some timing data, but we’ll also dig into the linguistics to … Read more
Predicting and Creating. Regardless of whether anyone recognizes these two processes, just about every human on Earth is accomplishing them every minute of every day. Now take those processes and magnify the energy and intensity. You now have high energy and high frequency directly clashing with behind-the-scenes reality creation. It might actually be a legitimate metaphor to envision the bull … Read more
This post is not the startling and mind-blowing research project that we saw from the Canadian shooting, the Dallas ebola ground zero patient, nor many of the Project August predictions. It’s probably more akin to the Heidi Klum double-top linguistics fan fare we got that predicted her magnificent Halloween outfit a month ago.
This post is not nearly as entertaining, … Read more
If it’s been looking pretty quiet here lately, I’ve done a great job at keeping the tremendous activity hidden. There are so many exciting things going on here I can hardly keep a lid on my enthusiasm. But I will, because I must….at least for another couple of weeks.
Over the holidays I got a chance to really sit down … Read more
Throughout the summer of 2014, a group of dreamers from all over the globe participated in a revolutionary dream initiative called Project August. Hosted by the National Dream Center (NDC), this 3.5 month collective project was designed to see how well a group of dreamers could intentionally see the future.
Each participant accomplished a specific incubation protocol prior to going … Read more
This is Part II in a series of posts. I recommend the reader start with Part I first, which has some necessary background information that will enhance and clarify what we’re covering here.
Shortly after Project Año got underway, I received a most interesting message from someone I’ll call D.P.:
The problem with such esoteric endeavors? Outside of a … Read more
Ingredients that went into this recipe include: 1 part utter shock, 1 part synchronicity, 1 part scientific research and 1 part otherly world. In addition, there are other overarching seasonings, including a sprinkle of equality, a drizzle of hope, and one gigantic heaping ladle of gratitude.
I start off with what could be the best news of all….This series of … Read more
Update 12/05/14: Although patience is the word of the day for this Hawaii meme, there is a decent chance that the wrong Pacific islands were seen in both the dreams and the linguistics. Please also see this link after reading the following article: http://nationaldreamcenter.com/forum18/showthread.php?tid=423&pid=2827#pid2827
I really don’t like typing this up, but I have to honor what’s showing … Read more
You’re never going to believe what kind of stuff that our collective dreams can pick up ahead of time. One of the most covered stories over the past weekend is the same one I would have never seen had it not been for the amazingly reliable “double-top” pattern of one of our recent DreamBot memes.
I was working on the … Read more
A special thank you for those who have already jumped into this fun and exciting project! This is just a quick note to try and help everyone achieve better scores as the project unfolds. Because Project Año is so similar to the one we did several months ago (Project August), we have lots of lessons learned to share for those … Read more
This project/competition ends Dec 14, 2014!
The NDC’s mega-initiative is a huge dream project that will encompass the whole year of 2015. No, no, no…don’t get freaked out….the only dreaming involved will last just over a month, but the target period itself is a whole year! That’s right, for the next month and a half, the global dreamers will … Read more
Update, 8PM CST: According to the news, our huge headline for one of the memes has come to fruition.
“Private Spaceship Bound for Space Station Explodes on Launch,” says NASA publicists. As of local time here, one cannot find any news link on the web that doesn’t have this news highlighted front and center. The story is huge, but fortunately … Read more
If you haven’t seen the first article yet, it might help to quickly peruse that one first.
October 21st was a historic day for DreamBot runs, for it marked the first time a color would make the top rung of surging dream words. And of all the colors possible, what color was it?
…Beige. As a consequence, I … Read more
A far too giddy visitor posts a comment yesterday which said, “You blew it on the Canadian shootings today. While dreams are certainly a part of our reality I don’t think they really predict anything.” Well, as always, everyone has a part of the whole truth so what part of his statement might represent some of that truth?… Read more
Note: Perhaps just coincidence, but within about 25 minutes of publishing this article, the entire website went down for about 3 hours. A few people managed to gain access, but all admin/elders/mods were left out in the dark. Hmmmm….
Henry Adams said, “Chaos was the law of nature; Order was the dream of man.”
In other words, there … Read more
In part 1, we explored the two modalities used to make dream predictions and headlines. The NDC is based on very simple processes, but because there are so many actions required to support these processes, the website as a whole can seem more complex than it really is. The NDC structure itself is rather simple.
There are just 3 main … Read more
It would be at the end of September, right in the heart of some very troubling times at the NDC (amidst attacks, database crashes, and scheduled forum closures) that “BARRY” would be starting an alarming seesaw pattern in the collective psyche. We began seeing this pattern in early October and began questioning, “Who in the heck is Barry?”
Now that … Read more
