The Waves is a newsletter reporting on the explorations of the Sea Life
community. Sea Life, the main web forum at Dreampeace, aims to bring
together a circle of dreamers from around the globe, collaborating in
dreaming adventures, and 'dreaming with and for the earth itself'
This moon, the people at Sea Life, took a journey to the icy land
of Antarctica. It was the atmosphere of mystery surrounding
previous visits there, and the beauty of the Antarctic landscape
that we set out to explore. Upon sharing an earlier dream about a
monk showing me a map of Antarctica, with rivers and lakes running
through it, Valter (Strawin) shared a fascinating story about 'The
Ancient Map of Piri Reis'.
"In 1929 a group of historians found half of the map in Istanbul
on a dusty shelf, still rolled up and drawn on a gazelle skin. The
content of the map was amazing: it focused on the western coast of
Africa, the eastern coast of South America and the northern coast
of Antarctica. The most flabbergasting point is that the Antarctic
had remained undiscovered until 1818, but its northern coastline,
perfectly detailed, was shown on this map drawn in 1513. It shows
the land mass that exists under the Antarctic ice cap (and
Greenland), which were only visible before 4000BC."
Harold Z. Ohlmeyer, Lt. Colonel, USAF, Commander wrote: "The
geographical detail shown in the lower part of the map agrees very
remarkably with the results of the seismic profile made across the
top of the ice-cap by the Swedish-British Antarctic Expedition of
1949. This indicates the coastline had been mapped before it was
covered by the ice-cap. The ice-cap in this region is now about a
mile thick. We have no idea how the data on this map can be
reconciled with the supposed state of geographical knowledge in
What made this discovery all the more fascinating, was that a
previous member of the forum - Phantom Spectre, had six months
earlier shared dream experiences, with a similar message.
ANTARCTICA IN THE PAST
One dream I had about 3 years ago, I was only able to visit
Antarctica in the past. I spent my time largely talking to the
inhabitants. It was largely a tropical area, which was inhabited
by a mixture of races. To them race did not matter. People lived
very long. However there was not always peace; they said there
were nomads who would visit every so often who were very powerful.
These people called these men "fellers". I do not know the
significance of this term. Only that they are said to like making
people fall down.
Another dream I recall from memory was right after the tropical
age in fact it was very strange for an old man appeared and told
me that destruction was imminent. He said something about the
formation of the earth, and that there was still much ice in the
upper atmosphere which made the entire earth tropical. However
when this fell to earth it caused a flash freeze at the poles.
Freezing, destroying everything at the poles. He explained that
even wooly mamoths were frozen with grass still in their mouth. I
asked why this happened. There was no answer, Then I woke up.
Another dream yet, I was in a town on Antarctica. It was very
modern brick building. Not anything like what we have but the
inhabitants were modern enough to build these. They also had built
pottery. I asked someone what year it was. They did not know how
to respond. My guide appeared and made some comment about it being
around or before 4000 b.c. give or take 2000 years. Then I said
"Wouldn't it be around the time of the Ice Age? Around 10000BC?"
She said "No. Carbon dating is not that accurate, plus the plates
of the earth moved very quickly during that time which also threw
everything off for todays scientists."
In another dream of my own, I decided to venture into dreaming,
and check the computer for more info about Antarctica. I wasn't
all that successful, and was even a little bewildered when I saw
the name 'Megawati' in reference to Antarctica. However, when I
decided to do a little search on the net, I turned up this
"There are two Indonesian scientists aboard the Aurora Australis
who are travelling as guests of the Australian Government. They
will be the first Indonesians ever to set foot on Antarctica, as
far as anyone can judge, and they constitute the Indonesian
Antarctic Expedition 2002.
This Expedition was launched in Jakarta shortly after Christmas
with the official inauguration of an inscribed granite plaque by
the President, Mrs Megawati Sukarnoputri who has personally
"signed" the plaque. The inscription - in Bahasa - speaks of
friendship and cooperation between Indonesia and Australia."
And then there was the focus of the program; "to look at the
community structure of phytoplankton in particular with regards to
the increase in UVB radiation over the summer. This is important
to us because we can make comparisons with UVB radiation in
Indonesia where the increase in UVB is putting our archipelagoes
at risk. The high intensity of light and high concentration of
carbon dioxide threaten the life under our red-white flag,
particularly in marine primary production which will, in turn,
slowly damage our marine biodiversity."
In the words of 'Ascension', which were directed at myself "The
fact it is to do with sealife is relevant of course, and the
treaty between Indonesia and Australia also, considering you are
an Australian Explora, and your site kind of offers a treaty that
unites dreamers from all over the world. Way cool!"
Stay tuned next moon for the results of our 'Psychedelic
Dreaming'. We welcome new dreamers to join us in our adventures.
