Through the Looking Glass
A Dream Traveler Explores Other Dimensions
By LINDA H. MASTRANGELO
The simplest way to visualize a Kerr wormhole is to think of Alice’s looking glass. Anyone walking through the looking glass would be transported instantly into Wonderland, a world where animals talked in riddles and common sense wasn’t so common.
—Michio Kaku from Blackholes, Wormholes and the Tenth Dimension
I consider myself a prolific dreamer. In other words, I remember my dreams quite frequently and have been keeping an archive of these dreams for over 30 years. I also like to call myself an oneironaut or “dream traveler,” for in many instances I have journeyed to different worlds or realms. What I have discovered over time was a distinct pattern in these journeys, namely in the form of a portal or gateway that would appear in the pre-lucid state. Not unlike Alice walking through her looking glass, moving through these portals brought me to strange and fantastic worlds.
My hope for this deep sharing is to connect with other dreamers who have had similar experiences and create an open dialogue to expand awareness of the phenomena. William Blake writes, “If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.” Perhaps this will not only spark the imagination, but through the gifts of the dreamtime, allow us to soar to greater heights of consciousness and understanding.ARTWORK © JEEYOUNG LEE To read this article in full, you must Buy Digital Subscription, or log in if you are a subscriber.
