The Dreaming Gods

A little while ago, I had the pleasure of reading an early version of the manuscript of a very interesting novel by a friend of mine named Chris Nelson, which he calls “The Dreaming Gods.”

I noted in my journal a particularly nice passage in which the protagonist, a scientist, describes in a few short words why he has been reluctant to pay any attention to people’s reports of experiences beyond the current paradigm. This paragraph describes everything that modern science does wrong:

“I’m not like that. This is where my academic nature comes in. When people tell me strange things I dismiss them … I tend to go more by what I think is possible rather than what people tell me they’ve experienced.” He laughed. “Saying that makes me realize how absurd it is. It’s backwards. It’s not even good science.”

That’s entirely correct. The materialist fantasy — nightmare, really — cannot stand up in the face of actual reported facts over thousands of years, so those who are enmeshed in it resolutely refuse to examine the reports. When they do begin to examine them, they begin to awaken.

  1. Dear Mr DeMarco,

    What you share is so powerful and profound, I thank you for sharing it. When people talk about what they’ve experienced, it is as if they are saying, “I share from my own knowledge the truth I have learned as I perceive it.” I feel that if we can share from our own knowledge, we understand things that are meaningful. If I go by what I think is possible, I end up living in my head, and stay stuck. Staying stuck, I end up believing only this material world is real. Then I feel trapped in the nightmare, a hole which I dig, and wonder, how did I get there in the first place? I don’t like being stuck. Why does modern science choose to go by what it thinks is possible, rather than actual reported facts? I wish I knew.


  2. I think that modern materialist science is stuck in reaction from the days — centuries ago, now — when a church with political power determined “what is true” and science emerged as an independent means of inquiry only slowly and in struggle. We are never at our best when working from fear, and scientists have disgraced themselves repeatedly in their zeal to perpetuate an official dogma served by officially appointed priests (i.e. themselves). I am sure they would faint if it occurred to them, butin this they are acting exactly like the medieval church. There is an old cliche, “you become like the worst in those you fight.”
