Dream of:14 August 1990 "Forty Years In The Future"
I found myself living in a room in a city which I finally identified as Brussels, Belgium. I was thinking about all the magnificent buildings and sculptures I could look at in the city if I would search them out. As I looked out my window, I realized two large buildings, perhapschurches, were just across the street, quite splendid in appearance, decorated with numerous stone carvings.
I was uncertain whether I would stay in Brussels, but I thought how this area of the world had always pleased me. I figured most people would be speaking French, and I would enjoy that. It seemed as if I might just stay.
I was in what appeared to be an apartment of a tall apartment building. It was night and the lights were on in the apartment. It was gradually becoming clear to me that a war had begun. Although a nuclear bomb had been dropped on the city, the city hadn't been completely destroyed, and most buildings, although damaged, were still standing. As I looked out the window to a tall building on the other side of the street, I realized no lights were on in that building. Suddenly it occurred to me that enemy troops had already invaded the city and that they were probably looking for lights in windows to determine where people still were.
Alarmed, I walked into the bedroom to the closet and pulled a revolver off a top shelf from under some white clothes. I looked at it; it had two small red bullets in its chamber. But they weren't next to each other and I needed to load it so they would be right next to each other. I then retrieved another revolver from a place where I knew it had been hid. The first revolver was larger than the second one, and both had brown, wooden handles. I walked down the hall with a gun in each hand, thinking how I looked somewhat like a cowboy ready for action.
As I listened to a radio broadcast, I hoped some news would come on about the bombing, but finally I realized the news was from the day before, and no mention was made of the bombing. I also began to remember I was actually in the future, about 40 years, from where I had been. I was 40 years in the future in the middle of a nuclear war. I definitely wanted to return to my own time.
I thought Germany was the country responsible for the war. Perhaps this time Germany would be hit by nuclear weapons and most of its population destroyed. This time Germany would probably be divided up between France and Poland; I began picturing what the new map of Europe would look like.
