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).

Check out this exciting new book:
The first volume of The Lost Spiritual World explores the complete Gospel of Mark, using the renowned Scholars Version by academics from Harvard, Notre Dame, Vassar, and other major universities.How respectable is that? The webpage even goes on to quote Kierkegaard.
Nearly two hundred years ago, the great theologian Soren Kierkegaard concluded that “Christianity is absurd.” But he was not mocking; he was despairing our inability to believe in a scientific age. [...] The Lost Spiritual World struggles within the tradition of KierkegaardBut that's not all. Other selling points include:
The Lost Spiritual World is not shaped like a rectangle. In Greek, the word orthodox means “straight thinking.” But some fundamentalists have called me a "blasphemer" and a “heretic” because I don't "think straight" according to their orthodox doctrines. That's why I created the wavy shape. It immerses you into the quantum field, showing you how to explore the interconnection of seemingly opposite perspectives.I have come to suspect that if you took a poll of people who say they do "work" on quantum physics, the scientists would be far outnumbered by people who think that quantum physics has something to do with Kierkegaard.
The Lost Spiritual World uses twelve metallic inks. Their vibrational frequencies have been around since the Big Bang, but we are just becoming aware of them. They literally connect you to the cosmic stardust from which you were born. They sparkle with the living presence of our real creation story, the real elements of God within us.
