Primary Emotional Response of the Book of Revelation

 

In this section of Division II, we are exploring the overall and primary emotional response of St. John the Divine had when he experienced the three dreams on the island of Patmos. The primary response to a dream that has been experienced is the key element in determining the nature of dream, as well as distinguishing between the three types of dreams that we all experience when we close our eyes. This key and crucial response when one wakes up is the driving factor in shaping our daily and future lives, and the primary response that St. John had in all of the dreams that he experienced has shaped the future to come in religion.

 

But, in order to understand the Book of Revelation further, we must first learn the differences of between the three types of dreams we experience. First in a dream, we have a clear "dream stage" where the episodes of the dream is clear and with normal dimensional form as they are usually are constructed with details that are meant to "peer out" to the ever-seeing mind. They are usually about current life experiences in the dreamer's life and are meant to teach the dreamer about changes that need to be undertaken in their life.

 

Secondly, in a premonition, the dream is usually in a three-dimensional "dream stage" with the background of the stage in a dark stage of lighting. It is here where the dreamer will be hyper-sensitive and the dream's acoustics will be highten so the dreamer can listen to the sounds of the episodes of the premontions. It is usually a warning for a future and/or present situation that will arise. But, these permontions are not all a tragedy of some sort as they are a balance of tragedy and happiness. They are meant for the dreamer to possibly make a choice in the current and future life.

 

Finally, in a future vision, the episodes are in a four-dimensional structure with the backgound of all the scenery in a lighted-pointed rays that are distorted and unable to see the background completely. The vision usually lasts for five seconds whereas it is literally vision of reality with all the distortions and rays surrounding it. It's like being encased in the "dream stage and background". These types of dreams are not a dream of current life experiences and/or premontions as they are the future of things to come.

 

But, what is important in determining all of the three types of dreams is the intial emotional response when a dreamer wakes up from rest as it can clarify the nature of the dream. For example, if one has a dream of seeing fish in a river which means "they are favored by the rich and powerful" and the initial response when waking up is "fear" then it means the dreamer is insecure about their financial matters and/or endeavors. But, if the initial response is "confidence" then, it means that their financial matters and/or endeavors are soild and concrete which means success is around the corner. The dreamer must determine the initial emotional response which is difficult to process at first because our mental faculities when waking up are usually not at funcitional level. Thereby, one must train themselves over time to be attentive to their emotional state after a dream when waking up.

 

List of Primary Emotional Resonses of St. John the Divine

 

This list of primary emotions(according to Parrott's List of Emotions) by St. John the Divine is a theoretical calculus of the majority of feelings and emotions that he had when he experienced the three dreams. But, the theoretical calculus is crucial to the interpretation of the Book of Revelation as his primary response of "Joy" indicates that the forthcoming prophecies will be a jubliant affair of religious prophecy. It should provide comfort to the many religious followers of the Book of Revelation as they can take comfort in knowing that "the world not of this world" will prevail. We believe that St. John the Divine's primary response when he initially woke up dream after dream was "Joy" which in turn, categorizes all of the three dreams as "visions" and not just dreams and/or premonitions. We also believe that in the chronological order of the three dreams they can be determined where a primary response is different other than "Joy" as it is the beginning of each three dreams where the primary response of "Joy" is the foremost, final, and initial emotion when St. John the Divine woke up.
