Dreams in Realtime

That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough ~ REM

“When he looks back at me, his eyes travel around my face the way fingers dart through the bottom of a drawer, searching for batteries in a blackout.”  ~ Holly Schindler

“Courage is being the only only one who knows how terrified you are.”  Tom Clancy

Dreams may come at any time, anywhere. The question of ‘when’ comes up, and the only answer is ‘you will find out’. Just chill, k? Not everything happens for a reason. I may just be rambling here but I am thinking of a virtual particle . . .”

The best way to approach this concept, I believe, is to forget you ever saw the word “particle” in the term. A virtual particle is not a particle at all. It refers precisely to a disturbance in a field that is not a particle. A particle is a nice, regular ripple in a field, one that can travel smoothly and effortlessly through space, like a clear tone of a bell moving through the air.  A “virtual particle”, generally, is a disturbance in a field that will never be found on its own, but instead is something that is caused by the presence of other particles, often of other fields.” ~ Matt Strassler

Makes total sense, right? Not so much. Not yet, anyway. I love physics; coulda gone there myself; coulda gone all theoretical and stuff. Pop science can be sketchy but it is fun as all get out. What I am, I think, getting at is that you may strive for something, visualize it, spark up the Law of Attraction, and think positively 24/7. And when and if your dream comes true you still have no friggin way of knowing for sure that your efforts were the cause of the dream in realtime unfolding . There’s a chance that the dream just happened, and that the Universe knows something that you don’t. Capiche? A dream come true comes along and you say . . . no, wait, I’m starting to sound kinda arrogant here, aren’t I? I’m a Chaos kind of guy. I like to see how things unfold. The nature of their coming in to existence is what I like to watch, to see how it all moves. Suppose you are looking for ‘Miss Right’. Someone nice comes along. You can see her presentation. She . . oh, never mind. What I am saying dude, without so many words, dude, is to watch how she moves, and not like some ogler, dude. Well, that’s me today. No, I am not looking for Miss Right again, I am simply looking for movement. But I am too tired, weary, whatever  – and achy too – to run around looking. Today I am into standing still –  metaphorically speaking, of course

“Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around
If wishes were trees, the trees would be falling
Listen to reason, season is calling”  ~  REM

Peace out, y’all. Goof gloriously.
