The wheel in the sky

I had a dream.

I had a dream that there was a spoked wheel spinning around in the sky. (Coincidentally, I've recently been reading Ezekiel.)

I don't know how many spokes the wheel had, but I'm pretty sure it ought to have had twelve.

Adjacent to the spinning wheel was a Bible. Upon picking out a Bible verse, the wheel would stop spinning, and a spoke on the lower-right side of the wheel would poke out through the wheel's rim, then turn until horizontal, and merge into the Bible verse. Then it would come back out, and take its original position in the wheel.

The wheel would then begin to spin again, until another Bible verse was chosen, and so on.

I'm pretty sure this was a vision that will someday lead me to develop some kick-ass scriptural hermeneutic. As in, if you got this hermeneutic, you would automatically get 10,000 bonus Experience Points in Christianity (and probably in Judaism, too, though I'm not so familiar with the level system in Judaism). I just need to figure out what the spokes represent, and why they have to be arranged in a wheel (for this was crucial) and why the wheel has to be spinning (for this was absolutely crucial).

That's cool.

Last night I dreamt I was on a Survivor-type reality show, except instead of being on an island it was at a mall. Survivor: Metrotown or something.

The challenges were things like: Race your SUVs to find the best parking spot! Run through the mall and find the coolest sweater!

Isn't that a Journey song, or something, "Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin'..."

Micah,

True. Good catch.

But actually the song that occurred to me first was Daniel Famile's "The Wheel Made Man".

fear comes where love was
then love comes where fear was
the wheel the big wheel
in the sky is for real
