What dreams may come



The script of this film is based on the novel published by Richard Matheson in 1978.

The film tells the history of a family constituted by Chris and Annie Nielsen and their children. After the death of their children and Chris, Annie commits suicide. The central theme of the movie is based on the adaptation of Chris to the extraphysical dimension after his death and his attempt to rescue Annie from “hell”.

In this article we will comment on some phenomena and situations that are good to mention:

•  In various scenes after Chris’s death his period of adapting to the extraphysical dimension can be observed. Gradually he feels less fear to the unknown, and clearly recognizes the image of Albert and his children.

A greater level of lucidity and knowledge is manifested through the capacity to control energies in the extraphysical. Fear and emotions diminish the capacity of the consciousness to act in various dimensions.

•  After his death, Chris encounters a reality unknown to him until then, the extraphysical dimension. In this scene, the character called Leona, explains to Chris how each consciousness has a mission to carry out in the extraphysical.

The mission which each consciousness has to perform will be defined by the strong traits (positive evolutionary quality) and their character. For example, Albert, who in reality was Chris’s son, has the mission to save lost souls: “The Tracker”, who was Chris’s professor, is a psychiatrist and is dedicated to study.

The reality that the person experiences is produced by the state of their emotions and thoughts. This is the consciential microuniverse. “There are no rules, there are no judgments, and the truth is what one person believes in their intimacy”. This is demonstrated in the following scenes:

1) When Annie finds herself alone, after the death her husband and her children, she enters into a deep depression.

2) Chris creates his own reality in the extraphysical, when he appears in a painting full of colors. He likes art and in this picture he feels safe.

3) The scene where, encouraged by Albert, Chris drinks a cup of coffee that he creates with his own thoughts and energy.

•  There is a scene where Albert asks Chris: “Are you your arm? Are you your legs? Are you even your brain? The brain is a part of your body and dies with it. You are the part of yourself that thinks and knows that it exists. When you are alive, you stay in your body as if you were in your house, but you are not your house.

Chris, little by little, acknowledges who he is as a consciousness. Little by little he abandons the limitations and conditionings that he maintained while living in the intraphysical, realizing his own reality.

•  Chris, in one of the film’s scenes, clearly shows that he observes the sadness of his wife. In his rush to help her, he whispers his name for her to realize that he is by her side.

The energetic intervention of one consciousness to another can be an intrusive or helpful. It depends on the evolutionary and cosmoethical level of the consciousness who is coupling with the other. In the case of Chris it is an unconscious intrusion. He realizes the situation when instead of helping his wife his intervention increases her desperation even more.

•  The assistential help between consciousnesses is showed in some parts of the film:

•  When Chris, despite the difficulties faced, rescues Annie from “hell”. The love and the energetic union of Chris with his wife, enables him to locate his wife’s consciential energy in the extraphysical, and gives him the strength to have an opportunity to rescue her from the desperation that she is suffering because of her madness.

•  When Chris’s daughter transforms herself into an adult woman (Leona) to comfort her father who is worried about his wife. Many times the extraphysical entities need to adopt another appearance so that the conditionings and emotions of the consciousness do not intervene with the assistance to be carried out.

•  When the character “The Tracker” guides Chris in the rescue of Annie. Chris’ professor is another character who adopts another appearance to assist Chris. “The Tracker” was a studious human (psychiatrist). He has became an expert in relation to the psychosoma, and is the person recommended to guide Chris in the rescue of his wife. As he guides Chris through the different extraphysical dimensions, he warns him of threats, and teaches him the differences between the consciousnesses they find through the way.

•  At the end of the film, Chris and Annie arrange to meet in a future physical life. Chris speaks to his wife “We can return and choose from different opportunities, to try again”… In a scene related to the future, they find each other again as children who encounter when their toy yachts collide. Coincidentally at the start of the film they met each other while sailing on a lake in Switzerland.

It is not rare for couples to plan to meet in a future life, especially for couples who have already shared many physical lives. These couples join efforts and objectives to successfully perform personal consciential evolution, aiming to complete their existential program.
