It was a lovely Saturday morning: early spring, I think, because the air was crisp and crystal clear, allowing the Sun to shine brightly over the roofs of central Moscow. I came to school as I usually do, at about 9 am (on Saturdays we don't have the 1st lesson, so we come to school a bit later), and suddenly found out that there's some kind of a contest held today, and students from other schools would come to participate. The contest started about 25 minutes later, but there was already a crowd of guys and girls from other schools gathering near the headmaster's office. Among them I recognized a couple of my ex-classmates: Alex and Chris. Alex, as usual, pretended that we do not know each other, but Chris waved and greeted me quite friendly. We had a short conversation, but then he left for the contest. I turned to leave too, but my attention was dragged to the sign on which the name of the constest was written. The thing that surpised me was that the sign said: USSR... And just one minute ago I was sure that I lived in Russian Federation. Then the dream faded...

This dream may be interpreted on several different levels. If you are the student you may be feeling inadequate or lack self-confidence. Either way, going to school or attending class in a dream is your unconscious reminder that there is a need for new learning and that you may have not learned an important lesson. School may not always be a positive experience, but it is always necessary. Ask yourself what do you need to learn more about? If you were a teacher in your dream, you may be dealing with issues of authority. From a spiritual point of view, some believe that in the dream state an individual may travel to an inner plane or the spiritual realm, where they can attend classes that assist in spiritual growth and development.
According to Raymond Lull, ‘meaning is the revelation of secrets
through the sign’, a thesis which puts the emphasis upon the sign as a fact, as a
reality. On the other hand, for Stanislas de Guaita (Essais de Sciences maudites,
II, Paris, 1915) the sign is the ‘point of reference needed by the will (or conscience) in projecting itself towards a predetermined goal’. The sign, then, is the
concrete form, the symptom, of an invisible, an inner reality and, at the same
time, the means whereby the mind is reminded of that reality. Determination and
meaning are immanent in the sign. The occult theory of ‘signatures’ conceives
everything that exists as a sign and holds that everything has a feasible ‘reading’
(the shape of a tree, the position of three or more rocks on a plain, the colour of some eyes, marks made by natural forces on a natural or artificial terrain, the
structure of a landscape, the pattern of a constellation, etc.). Auguste Rodin, a
realist who was always hovering on the borders of symbolism, in his Conversations collected by Paul Gsell, places all art within this realm of occult meaning,
with the words: ‘lines and shades are for us nothing more than the signs of a
hidden reality. Beyond the surface, our gaze plunges into the spirit’. The painter
Gustave Moreau expressed himself in similar terms when referring to ‘the evocation of thought by line, arabesque and plastic means’. In the present century, Max
Ernst and Dubuffet, among other artists, have explained their pictorial and graphic
experiments as an immersion in the psychic projected onto the material. At the
same time, C. G. Jung gives a similar explanation of the quest of the alchemists.
