:: Bizarre Dream :: 

I have been recalling my dreams of late. 
There is usually this key imagery. Which I recollect. 
And it will unlock the rest - the stream of unconsciousness.
Like a flood, everything comes at the exact same time. 
This messes up the sequencing. There is no beginning or end. 
Anyway. Back to my dream. I was on this sea voyage.
Moving southwards of Singapore. There was no Indonesia. 
Instead, it was an expanse of ocean. Except for this island of symmetry.
Shaped like the half of a gourd or an hourglass, at high tide. 
During low tide, it looked like the double hump of a camel. 
I was supposed to look for something. Was it a treasure. 
I do not remember. Why do I always have epic dreams
Where I am looking for something that I cannot find?
When I returned to Singapore, a friend noticed 
Black lines on my calves. He halted me.
He took a pair of tweezers. He then pressed hard. 
At the edge of one of the black lines. 
He then pulled out a tiny black worm.
"These are leeches," he said. 
"They must have attached themselves to you
During your voyage," he surmised. 
"Oh," I noted and casually took the tweezers 
And continued to pull the rest of the leeches out.
Soon, all the leeches were removed. 
As usual, the dream has no obvious meaning.
And deriving any meaning from it equals
Reductio ad absurdum.

"There are two different schools of thought as to why we dream: the physiological school, and the psychological school. While many theories have been proposed, not single consensus has emerged as to why we dream. Some researchers suggest that dreams serve no real purpose, while other believe that dreaming is essential to mental, emotional and physical well-being. One theory for dreaming suggests dreams serve to clean up clutter from the mind."

Deciphering from the symbology of your subconscious:
The ocean indicative of spiritual refreshment, tranquility and renewal. You are feeling empowered and unhindered. You have a positive outlook in life and are not limited by anything. If you are sailing across the ocean, then it signifies new found freedom and independence.
Since you are looking for treasure on an island, this represents you seeking time out to discover new talents that you may have yet to explore. Some people take up new courses and hobbies to develop unknown aspects of themselves, and as yet, you believe you may have something yet untapped within you.
Leeches are negative emotions and people around you. Since you have acquired after the search, this will probably mean that usually after some dabbling, you come out of the situation feeling a little exhausted from the effort and wondering if it might have been worth it.

Hope this helps.


Gee thank you. sounds logical actually.
