A lot of people including myself have been plagued by bad dreams recently, I was thinking about this last night and came up with a theory.

The events on 9/11/01 were horrifying and next door, they brought home in a very visceral way the fact that even in the developed West we are not safe. Since then events like Katrina have re-inforced that realization and perhaps as a result our subconscious minds are screaming at us, especially in and around the anniversary of the fall of the Twin Towers.

Speaking for myself I know that intellectually I know that society as we know it is quite a thin veneer, it's something else entirely to really internalize this realization and start acting on it. Perhaps our dreaming selves are not satisfied with our waking selves trying to carry on as before?

Combine this with the gradual climate change that in my opinion is changing the timetable of the Ride and the Hunt and I'm not surprised we are all having the heeby jeebies.

Or I might be full of it.
