5397

March 4th, 2005 by Editor B

Alone in a dark room with just a mattress on the floor and a pay phone on the wall. I’m making a call. I’m scared . I’m trying to speak into the receiver. I’m trying to say a PIN number — 5397 — but I’m literally paralyzed with fear, so terrified that I can’t even open my mouth. I summon all my strength and scream the numbers between clenched teeth: 5! 3! 9! 7!

Then Xy wakes me up. She could hear my “screams” in the form of heavy breathing.

    It sounds like you saw SAW. Isn’t that sort of like the layout of the room in that movie?

    In my bad dreams, I’m often trying to call 911 for some reason, but all I get is a busy signal. Another variation is that I have to dial some long number for the police, but no matter what I do, I can’t dial it right.

    It’s sort of like The Matrix too – like you’re trying to get sucked back to the conscious world through the telephone.

    I read on a dream interpretation site that odd numbers are more “aggressive” than even numbers. It also said that to see numbers in your dream signifies unsettled conditions in business resulting in uneasiness and dissatisfaction. Also, to see or hear a telephone in your dream signifies a message from your unconscious or some sort of telepathic communication. You may be forced to confront issues which you have tried to avoid.

    Or you could have just been watching movies before bed.
