    • POEM: A Dream Within A Dream by Edgar Allan Poe (7/29/2007 8:04:00 AM)

      It's clear to me. As in so many other things, after 'The Secret' I see it everywhere, especially in the old great artists. The idea that all is a hologram has obviously been around for eons. It's the primary idea in the Bible in fact.

      So about this poem in particular? He's grieving over his realisation that not even one grain of sand is real. Thinking of your favorite story, maybe it's Macbeth or thinking of your favorite song, they are non-existent. Pizza is non-existent. The Sierras are non-existent. The blue sky is an illusion. Is this something worth grieving over? I think yes, or at least it is in a mind not yet fully released from the illusion.

      I'm not saying I buy The Secret. I'm saying Poe has or is contemplating buying into it and is grieving over the lose of the illusion.

      The Secret is everywhere folks. It's in Shakepeare. It's in the movie A Space Odessey and The Tempest. It's Jesus primary idea. It's the Freemasons thing. It's everywhere. Read The Bible again, only this time with The Secret on your mind, you'll see I'm right and you'll be as shocked as I am.

      I used to think Poe dwelled on some kind of morbid death fixation, but now I know it's The Secret ect.
