I don't blog much 

In my day, our years only had four digits

Posted in Dream,Personal by Will on Tuesday, November 14th, 2006 ~ 10pm

I have to write this down because I do not want to forget this dream.

I dreamed that I was (visiting) far in the future, but the human race was pretty much like it is today, mainly because the people then were largely direct clones of people from our time. How or why this came about I do not know*, but I know I was with a woman who I knew in my own history as Christie, but this woman was not Christie** — she had a different name and was an entirely different person, albeit with the same genetics.

The other part of the dream that was most interesting to me was my embarrassment of saying what year I was born from. This future had apparently kept the Gregorian calendar, and their year was in the five digits. I was shy to admit that my year of birth was back in the four digits.

(*I think they found they needed to repopulate for some reason, so they were dipping into our era’s dna)
(**As in “Stop trying to kiss me, I’m not Christie!”)

    I met Christie in college. Though her name may be spelled differently that’s essentially it. I believe she married soon out of college. I didn’t have much history with her, but she impressed me as a wise person. She was in some ways the precursor to K (the other K).
