Now in the dream, I was relating all of this story to my sister, just as it happened, and how I watched the relationships of the sisters over time: various sisterly tensions and collaborations, the works. The episode that was somewhat a surprise to me, when I woke up, was the detailed account I had given my sister of Judy passing away in school and then later her subsequent resurrection, and how this played out, particularly in her relationship with So. Now, upon waking, I realized that I didn't really remember this episode happening, but I was amazed at the detail with which I had related it to my sister in the dream.
I'm curious as to what my pshrink friends would do with that, how they would interpret it and all, but that's just an idle curiosity. I've read enough comic books and watched enough television to know that this is clearly a sign that I had managed to go back in time and change the timeline so as to alter the course of events, thus saving Judy's life. The dream is therefore significant in foreshadowing some trans-temporal consequence of my adventure, which will soon transpire. So I suppose I'd better start putting together some weapons. And maybe drop the girls a line and see what they're doing with their lives.
