I suppose I have to start with the name of this place, but I hesitate because even that requires description. But maybe you will get a sense of the complex reality I experienced. You could say I made it up, but I had to learn it, I didn’t know anything of the place, and had to learn about it. And there were other people from earth who were there, and they helped me. In turn, I have helped others who arrived.
I would ask them, “Do you remember earth? Or "Is this a dream?”
No one knew. Bunch of shaking heads.
But then, one day, I encountered Noe. I really couldn’t believe it, even though I knew it was just a dream of some sort. Everyone had heard of him there, like a legend, no one knew if it was true though some others had met him, they were rare. Someone would say, I knew this guy who knew a girl who knew a guy who saw Noe. And Noe didn’t speak, he didn’t have a mouth, or even a body. He was just a glowing thing. On this planet you get used to things that glow, so there was more to it than glowing.
Throughout the experience I was frightened of him, even though he gave me a feeling I didn’t have to be. Even though someone can be calming, in the back of your mind you’re thinking “I don’t know what the heck this thing is. “
So, I will be writing “He said…”, but actually he just gave me thoughts. No, I don’t know how that worked. It was a dream; how exactly do they work? He said he had heard my wondering in my head and, so he would give me the information I wanted so badly, and said it would be “polite” if I respected the information enough to write it down when I was back on earth. That’s a good example of why I know it wasn’t my own imagination, who would say such a thing? Why would that be polite?
So, without words, Noe named the place for a meaning, which is: this planet is another green world like your home. And along with that meaning there were feelings that came to mind: be comfortable. This is your home, too. You belong here as much as anyone. No one can take from you what I have given to you. All at once. A name, a meaning, and feelings I was “invited to have."
