Freaky Even by My Standards

When I woke this morning, the wife asked if I had had any dreams. I said yes, a freaky one. When I typed Megatron into Google and looked at the Wikipedia output and saw Walther P38, I said out loud in the less polite version, “Foxtrotting Hell”.

So, I have just done the same thing with Optimus Prime.

 From Wikipedia

“Optimus Prime (formerly known as Orion Pax) is constantly, if not always, depicted as having strong moral character, excellent leadership, and sound decision-making skills, and possesses brilliant military tactics, powerful martial arts, and advanced extraterrestrial weaponry. Optimus Prime has a strong sense of honor and justice, being dedicated to building peaceful and mutually beneficial co-existence with humans, the protection of life and liberty of all sentient species. As the current Matrix of Leadership bearer, Optimus Prime is the de facto leader of the Autobots, a faction of a transforming species of synthetic intelligence from the planet Cybertron. The Autobots are constantly waging civil war against a rival faction of transforming robots called Decepticons. According to Bob Budiansky, co-writer of the Transformers series, Dennis O’Neil was responsible for his name.

Optimus Prime is usually depicted as being a member of an ancient Transformers race called the Dynasty of Primes, often receiving the title “The Last Prime” in many stories, in which he is depicted as being the last of the Primes. In the Transformers: Covenant of Primus, it was established that Optimus Prime was the last born of the original Thirteen Transformers created by the creator Primus. It was his unique spark and his inspiring reassurance that “All are One” that allowed the Primes to rally and succeed in their battle against the Chaos Bringer Unicron. When tragedy at last ended the era of the Primes and brought forth the new race of lesser descendant Transformers he alone chose to be reborn in the Well of All Sparks as one of them, that he might know them and their needs more completely. All memory of his past life gone, he took the name “Orion Pax” and sought his way like any other robot on the new world becoming Optimus Prime once more when receiving the Matrix of Leadership when Cybertron faced a new enemy in his former friend, Megatron and his army of followers, the Decepticons. This brings a Great War to their planet of Cybertron. Optimus’s origins and personality can vary depending on which “universe” he’s seen in. This origin is the most consistent between the various incarnations.”

Prior to the dream I have had only very limited exposure to the transformers – robots in disguise franchise and that was ages ago. It is not the kind of thing that lights my candle.

It is a bit spooky…especially given who was shooting at me with the P38.

The dream is firmly rooted in the South {Australia} and between an 18 and a 19 day. It has to do with the jewel zero, the void or no thing, the progenitor of manifestation. Zero is absolute freedom, because there in no thing from which to be freed.  

This could be the start of more weirdness…
