Talking With William Shatner

The night before last I remember part of one dream where I was in a house talking with William Shatner, my dad, and maybe one or two other people.

We walked around the house talking while doing various other things and Mr. Shatner & my dad & the others (if they were there), were talking about the past and how things have changed, and so it was nice getting to listen to their various stories / memories / et cetera.

I would ask questions and join in the conversation at times, but I mostly listened & learned things about the past.

I remember that the dream took place during the day, it seemed to be morning from the windows in the house, the kitchen/dinning room had nice lighting & a view to/from the outside.

I am not sure how this happened, but at some point I walked into a room that looked like the living room of my grandfather’s house; and one or more of my family members from my mom’s side of the family were there along with some unknown people.

My aunt SE was among the group of people and I sat down next to her on a couch to listen to everyone talk, and at some point the conversation turned toward me when I answered someone’s question in a way that made them start asking me very personal questions for some reason.

Here is some of the conversation, which felt more like an interrogation to me, and I was uncomfortable; and everyone was focused on me:

Unknown person: Do you go to church?

Me: No, not any more, but I used to.

Another person: Do you pray?

Me: No, not any more, but I used to.

At some point the topic of Race started, and I told them that I think that we are all one species / Race, and that to me the current Race system is really just a social club / social identification system / social construct that I do not support; and that I only consider myself Human (as far as I know, but I never had a DNA test done to prove that yet 😀 ) and I do not identify with any Race/Social Group, which made no sense to them.

My Aunt SE: So do you think that people treat you differently since your mom has whitish colored skin and your dad has brownish colored skin?

Me: Some people probably do, probably, but I do not have any examples that I know of to know for sure at this time; but one could easily assume that Some people might treat me differently because of that, but it is not something that I focus on or worry about really. *I wonder what is the point of her question*”

They kept asking me question after question, which made me more uncomfortable, and I feared them going any deeper with their religion themed questions; because I did not feel like trying to explain things that they probably could not understand, and we already were not agreeing on anything.

I got so uncomfortable that I accidentally woke myself up.

The end,

-John Jr 🙂
