Update on the Transition

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 explain in words, but suffice it to say that the new site will look completely different. As of now, we’re still waiting for the designer to fix some of the issues with our new design. The core structure is up and running, but it still isn’t street ready for various reasons. As of now, I still don’t have an estimated time until completion, but I can’t imagine it being later than April 2nd.

One thing that must take place, though, is a web optimization, and I haven’t a clue how long that will take, but I refuse to go live with the new site until it displays dramatically faster than it does now.

Until the Transition

Because this old site is so convoluted, it is difficult to find the latest content, and even figure out how to participate. Therefore, this section is just a quick summary of how to navigate this current site while we’re waiting for the new one to appear.

First, DREAMS. Our old DreamBase engine is hobbling, and really was the reason we decided to design a whole new site. Since people are having a problem with it, we have two places to input dreams, and the dreambot reads both locations. If you already have an account in the DreamBase and your browser allows you to input dreams, you may continue inputting dreams into that database until the transition.

However, if you are new to the site, you should begin your ‘one and only’ user account over in the forum and place your dreams over there. The registration process is simple for the forums. The link is here: http://nationaldreamcenter.com/forum18/member.php?action=register .     Then, once registered, you are encouraged to place your dreams in this forum: http://nationaldreamcenter.com/forum18/forumdisplay.php?fid=34   Simply press the button that says “Post Thread” and describe your dream for us.

 

Latest Content

Most of the fresh daily content comes from dreams, linguistics runs, and forum discussions. Even though the new site will not have everything tucked away in a forum setting, right now that is where most everything resides, unfortunately.

The good thing about it, however, is that you can simply go to the main Forum lobby and then find the link that says, “View Today’s Posts,” which will give you a convenient list of all the new content in the forum. Note that you have to be logged into the forum to see the link that says, “View Today’s Posts.”

Part of the new daily content will be called “Bot Runs.” Every day (and I mean literally every single day of the year), we send out the dreambot to go look at what everyone is dreaming about and then we analyze it. Linguistics analysis has shown to be fairly accurate when predicting the future, but the best predictability comes when linguistics overlaps with actual dream content.

In short, we appreciate you stopping by. We apologize for the messy presentation, but just know that the layout is about to change drastically. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to post a question in the forums. There are plenty of people that will be able to answer all (or most of) your questions. Thanks again and welcome!

NDC to Present at the 2015 IASD Conference

IASDThe 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

Assembling the Pieces: Football, Asteroids, & Theater

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

2015: A Look Ahead to the New Year

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

Closing in on Apocalypse

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

Lucky Agents – This meme was exhausting!

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

The Fate of Paradigm 3

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

Aliens Stealing Brains: More Lessons in Dream Linguistics

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

DreamBot4: Same old bot, brand new face

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

Project August Final Report (Summary)

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

For those with eyes to see: Secret mirror to Wall St.

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

Yellow Caution: All Eyes on Hawaii!

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.

Project Año: Secrets of the trade

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

Dual Red Alerts (Updated Oct 29)

Update, 29 Oct: Scary analysis provides a reason why this seemingly harmless “rocket” was growing so strong in the collective mind…because there was hypothesized, nefarious plans made for this spaceship, which would have changed the course of humanity. And it would have occurred right at about the time we expected the event would happen. Sounds confusing? It’s actually not: http://nationaldreamcenter.com/forum18/showthread.php?tid=275&pid=1714#pid1714Read more

NDC: How does it work? Part 2

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

Favorite Barry the Rabbi Busted! Incredible Linguistics Breakthrough!

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
