The 225 man
The point in the dream seems minor at first, but isn’t really—rating systems aren’t perfect. Just because a rating is given and averaged doesn’t mean it will accurately reflect one’s concerns about what is being rated. You and I, after all, aren’t everyone else. Sometimes ratings are nothing more than noise.
The dream had its roots in a good movie I streamed on HBO had a Metacritic score in the 60s. A vast collection of viewers and critics thought it was good, not great.
However, I enjoyed the movie a lot more than that. The characters were believable. I also liked how the writers brought up seemingly insignificant details early in the film that became important later on.
This movie—M. Night Shyamalan’s Old—won’t change your life, but it will entertain you and make you think. Is it fair to ask more from a movie?
Triggered by the movie, my subconscious was making a more global point.
A man in my dream walked around with a 225 displayed above his head. I looked at him and knew for sure that he was a 316. In the dream, I wished I could change the number to 316 but knew I couldn’t. My concerns about his rating were different than other people’s, and for me, they were right, and he fit the bill for being better than a 225.
My subconscious chose the numbers arbitrarily, though they might have had their root in Bible verses like John 3:16.
The dream’s point is while rating systems are meant to be useful, they’re not always. You and I are not everyone else. The quality of anything is in what you value and in the details of what’s being rated.
I was reminded of that and understood it better than before because I reviewed my dream.
Reflecting on this through the process of dream analysis and interpretation drove that point home even more clearly to me.
When you have a dream with a point, the process can do the same for you, helping you to learn the lesson—whatever it is—all the better.
