If you’ve been on Facebook at all this week (and who hasn’t) you’ve probably encountered a barrage of photos of your friends and family looking like they’ve aged 50 years (and really, really badly).

Written Confession: A Vivid Dream of Something Evil Under the North Pole

Written Confession: A Vivid Dream of Something Evil Under the North Pole

The dream happened back when I was in my early 20's. I can't remember exactly how old I was or the time of year. I do remember I was home from College for the weekend, and I was taking a nap on the couch on a Sunday morning while my mother was at church. In the dream, I could see everything going on, but I wasn't participating. I was actively watching, but was not part of the group I saw. In the dream, I saw a group of scientists, bundled up in cold weather clothing walking across a snowy landscape. In the dream, I knew they were at the North Pole. Not sure how I knew, I just did. The scientist were in a small group, approximately 3-5 people and they were using different devices for measuring data and testing the ice. I remember they were drilling very deep into the ice to take core samples, and for some reason the depth of 1.5 miles was in my mind.
