Parallel Non-intersecting Worlds

This morning I had a very highly detailed dream, perhaps from another world.



In that dream I was talking to an important Japanese dude and his two sempai. I was explaining to him about interpersonal interactions and he bought me an Asahi beer. Later this conversation became formal and I was making a presentation to him in a plush office in Mayfair at the behest of a boutique UK skills firm. It was similar to the room at Fleming Family and Partners where we discussed million pound investment in Powerlase, I being the last founder on the board. The boutique firm were trying to recruit me. I said that we could rent out the Royal Institution for future events for the Japanese company. The Japanese dude liked the idea and was very receptive to whatever it was that I was saying.


When I got back to my small house {in the dream} on the floor outside the house was a posh envelope from the boutique. In that was a job offer for a guaranteed £60 k. p.a. plus substantial perks and share capital.


We woke up and could hear Bowie the cat crying downstairs for attention. She is in two minds now that it is warm. She is showing us less attention and is often out in the garden hunting. My suspicion is that as it gets cold and the log fire burns, she will spend more time cwtched up on the sofa. I am the chief tick remover so we have a love hate relationship from time to time.

As I did my morning constitutional circumambulation of the pond, the coypu fled off into Le Jaudy and our resident heron flew off up into one of the pines on the “football pitch”. The wife tried to contact the log supplier and is now out watering. Later on, I will use the Kawasaki pump to fill the pond from the river, I will repair coypu damage and then do some strimming frenzy.


Yesterday, I had my application for patent approved. It contains things like photonic circuits and optical fibres, non-linear optics and lasers. It seems to me that this is by way of a “wild card” and could be the only thing with even the slightest risk of coupling these worlds.


It is like two uncoupled worlds which fail to intersect. They pass like ships in the night unaware of each other. There being only a febrile glancing dream to leave little more than a shadow hint of a passing.




“In Homer’s epic poem the Odyssey Book IX, Odysseus tells how adverse north winds blew him and his men off course as they were rounding Cape Malea, the southernmost tip of the Peloponnesus, headed westwards for Ithaca:

    I was driven thence by foul winds for a space of 9 days upon the sea, but on the tenth day we reached the land of the Lotus-eaters, who live on a food that comes from a kind of flower. Here we landed to take in fresh water, and our crews got their mid-day meal on the shore near the ships. When they had eaten and drunk I sent two of my company to see what manner of men the people of the place might be, and they had a third man under them. They started at once, and went about among the Lotus-eaters, who did them no hurt, but gave them to eat of the lotus, which was so delicious that those who ate of it left off caring about home, and did not even want to go back and say what had happened to them, but were for staying and munching lotus with the Lotus-eaters without thinking further of their return; nevertheless, though they wept bitterly I forced them back to the ships and made them fast under the benches. Then I told the rest to go on board at once, lest any of them should taste of the lotus and leave off wanting to get home, so they took their places and smote the grey sea with their oars.
