As I sit here at my computer I recall my last nights small dreams. as usual, more OBE, out of body dreams into the astral planes.
And AGAIN, maybe now the the 15th time, I visit the Row Of Shops!
strange row, these. they all are of the same style but different store each time. think..."bamboo shoot" where there are compartments in the shoot. I enter a shop, find it full of people and things to buy, usually old clothes or items like of a thrift shop. The shop is narrow. 40 feet long, maybe 20 feet wide, no windows. there is that door at the rear, i enter the door to see yet another shop behind that one. people and goods.
there is a door at the rear of the store and i open it to..........find yet another room; this room is empty of people and goods, but there are a couple of boxes here and there along the wall. there is a door in the rear, of course and i open it to find...another shop.
on and on, maybe 30 rooms. not a window or a door on the sides of any of these rooms. One of the rooms had a small cafe and there were policemen sitting at the tables having a break!
Every store must have had from three to 20 customers.
I woke up, but just as I woke, I now Knew what is going on here!
the astral as seen from a astral traveler, is not following the rules of earth plane! the laws of physics are different there and reality can shift about utterly, there.
there is NO "bamboo" row of shops there! there are many many shops though, thousands of these stores where no money changes hands. most have no windows on the sides as the shops might be in rows, like on a street on earth. Too, many of the customers enter via "teleporting" so that no door is even needed.
I, the astral traveler, would see these shops linked together, the residents would not see them so. they might ALL be just one store too, 4000+ stores all occupying the same 20 X 40 foot space, "on top of one another"!!
I went back to sleep and dreamed again. This time it was a road lined with farmers barns! farmhouses and old old barns. one after another, much closer than in earthlife. huge huge barns, the imagination of the farmers, who died on earth and had these constructed, now could build the barn of their dreams without the law of physics to get in the way. Most were abandoned, the farmenrs moved on to higher heavens. These barns and houses lined up much like the stores did! Some of these barns had scaffolding around them, a newly "dead" farmer has taken over another farmer's barn and house. Up ahead on the road, i could now see a far off old town's buildings, I stopped and figured it was a good time to turn around and go back to my body as I could see a modern construction crane blocking the road, ahead, much work being done on a barn.
