Dream: Alligators at Marineland

17 September 2017

In the dream, I was at Marineland, Niagara Falls, Ontario. I was standing there between the audience and the performance in the pool and I was staring at this pitiful looking waterfall. It was hardly larger than the type of waterfall you see outside a library or town hall.

“That is their version of ‘Marineland’?” I said to myself. I just stared at it like “You’ve got to be kidding me!”

There were no whales or dolphins either. There were about a dozen alligators. One had leaped out onto the deck area and was looking for food.

I just kept staring at the people who had paid to see “Marineland” and got alligators and a pitiful waterfall.

“How can it be that people are so disillusioned?” I wondered to myself. How can it be?

My analysis of this dream:

Well, this dream is about the illusion people have and the way people can be deceived if they are not looking at things through their own eyes. Sometimes people are fooled by a title or a headline which says one thing but the opposite is presented. A pool with alligators and a water fountain is hardly a captivating spectacle but with skilled marketing departments and a lot of money invested into creating an illusion people can pretty much believe just about anything.

I guess this dream is just reminding me that this is a real issue in our world today and something people should really think about.

Alligators are the kinds of animals who conceal and camouflage themselves in swampy waters, watching their prey, until just the right moment and then … SNAP! Attacked & killed, the poor deer or whatever didn’t even know what hit them.

This dream reminds me that our society is a bit sick-in-the-head because they actually even think of this kind of activity as entertaining. Media outlets like TV, Radio & Social Media have turned people into alligators & prey, with live audiences watching as real people’s emotions are destroyed.

I can only hope this type of so-called entertainment is temporary and that in time humans will no longer get a thrill out of watching others suffer. The more empathy & compassion we have for others, the deeper our relationships are/will be. In time, humanity will not tolerate these kinds of public abuses of others. That would be so nice, wouldn’t it?
