[edit] A weird dream about an earthquake (link)

[edit] 23 March 2008 - 8.59 AM
I had a very strange dream last night. Maybe you can help me figure out what it means. But I have to warn you before we start -- it's very, very weird.

When the dream starts, I'm sitting on top of a dinner plate, but it's not a normal plate; it's a gigantic plate, like the size of a city. So I look down and I notice that the plate is made out of this really fancy china, and it has this delicate little tree pattern all over it. The leaves branch out in every possible direction. For the longest time, I'm mesmerized by the pattern. I keep tracing my finger over it, following the branches in all these different directions.

And I notice that I'm dressed very oddly. I'm wearing a purple sari. But it's not an ordinary sari; it's way too big for me. There's enough fabric for at least a hundred saris, and it's draped over my shoulders so tight that I can barely move from the weight of it, and I can think is, "What in the world am I doing here?"

The dream gets weirder. The plate starts to shake. It feels like an earthquake only it doesn't stop after 15 seconds; it keeps going. The plate starts to crack. It's breaking up all around me and the cracks are getting bigger; they're everywhere, like the earth is breaking itself apart in thousands of little puzzle pieces. And I don't know why this pops into my head, but suddenly I realize that the reason I'm wearing this ridiculously oversized sari is that I'm supposed to use the sari to stop the earthquake. Okay, it doesn't make sense when you say it out loud like that, but in the dream it made perfect sense.

So I start unrolling the sari from my body. I'm on my hands and my knees crawling all over the shaking dinner plate, smoothing out the fabric on top of the cracks. And everywhere I get the cloth on the plate, the china stops shaking and the cracks start to heal. So now I'm unrolling myself as fast as I can, laying out the fabric in crisscrosses all across the plate, trying to go as fast as I can so I can stop the whole thing from falling apart. And I feel happy because I know I'm helping but I also feel scared because the plate is so big, and I can still see it shaking far in the distance in every direction I can see and I know that I can't cover all that ground by myself.

And that's when I wake up. I told you it was weird. Obviously I know that it wasn't a literal memory of something that actually happened to me, but it must be a symbolic memory. The thing is: I have no idea what the symbols represent. I hope you can help me figure it out.
I'm a little worried about Diego.

Last week, he set off on some mysterious "geographic investigations" in Brazil. He said he was inspired by Eli Hunt's podcast on "The Ancient Game Keepers" -- you remember, the one about a Greek earthquake in 1953 that opened up a secret chamber.

The scary thing is that Renata disappeared four years ago while on EXACTLY the same kind of investigation in Brazil.

Maybe I'm just so worried about Diego that it's creeping into my dreams. But last night I had one of those dreams again that felt more like another memory coming back to me. And it was about a very weird earthquake.

I mentioned the dream to Kai this morning, and he said I should make a video with as many details as I remember. I of course said no, that's too embarrassing!

But then I thought about it, and you guys did such an amazing job figuring out what the last weird dream meant, I had to do it. BUT TRUST ME. This dream is pretty weird and embarrassing and even a little stupid. So don't blame me if it doesn't make any sense when you hear it!
