The interpretation of dreams by dream experts may be almost as old as dreaming itself. We know that all humans, and many animals, dream every night, and humans have always been fascinated to learn what causes dreams and what they mean. Freud rightly termed dreams "The Royal Road to the Unconscious". In the next few months I am going to build up a section on dreams which will allow you a far greater understanding of them. I begin toay with a basic introduction.

The interpretation of dreams dates back at least as far as 3000-4000 B.C. We know that because the interpretations of dreams were recorded in permanent form on clay tablets. It is thought that many primitive peoples were unable to initially distinguish between the real world and the dream world. In many cases, these people looked upon the dream world as an extension of the physical world around them, and in many cases they saw the dream world as more powerful than the waking one. This of course could be said to have a lot of credibility because what we do not acknowledge in ourselves does tend to come up from the unconscious and affect our lives when we least expect it. Many early societies developed sophisticated ways of working with dreams. This is where the ideas of "creative dreaming" and "lucid dreaming"comes from

Dream interpretation was so important to the ancient Greek and Roman's that dream interpreters often accompanied generals and other military leaders into battles. Dreams were taken extremely seriously, and the Greeks and Romans in particular often viewed dreams as messages sent by their gods. Dreams also had a religious content in ancient Egypt, and priests were alsoskilled dream interpreters. They were among the items recorded by the ancient Egyptians in the form of hieroglyphics. Those whose dreams were especially vivid or significant were thought to be blessed and were given…...

...Description of the four kingdoms: a) The head of the statue was made of pure gold which represents the Babylonian Empire; it is unstable and heavy beginning with the head. (606-539 B.C) b) This statue in Daniel’s interpretation is followed by a chest with arms of silver which represent the Medo-Persian noted as a “dual empire”. (539-331 B.C.) c) The third kingdom is preceded by the belly and its thighs of bronze which represent the Grecian Empire. (331-323 B.C.) d) Another kingdom which follows is the Empire of Rome which signifies the legs of iron in Daniels’ dream as he interprets the dream of Nebuchadnezzar. It also has it feet and toes partly baked clay and partly of iron, which represents a divided kingdom It is important to note that beginning with the head of gold to the legs made of iron and feet and toes partly baked of clay and iron are deteriorating in fineness, but do increase in strength. There is division in these kingdoms which represent the two legs (eastern and western empires) and these are once again divided into kingdoms which represent the ten kingdoms that the Stone strikes (Second Coming of Christ). In chapter 7 of Daniel has another dream which is given to him of four world empires. a) The lion had wings of an eagle, yet its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a man, and the heart of a man was given to it. This represents the Empire of Babylon. b) The second Empire was...

Criticial Interpretation of Genesis 1

... living beings. “For the Yahwist, early human history is continually a four part story of sin, gods warning punishments, divine mercy and then further sin.” Furthermore, whilst P writes in a chronological and symmetrical structure, J has poorer structure and does not discuss the creation of the universe in as much depth and instead focuses on humans. Genre The genre of Genesis 1:1-2:4a serves as a ‘consciously planned’ historical narrative or genealogy, containing dialogue in the form of God’s commands of creation, climaxing with the creation of man in God’s image. ‘It has an introduction (1:1), a body (1:2-2:3) and a conclusion (2:4a) and together a unit is formed.’ Structure In this passage, the author is the narrator; God himself is alive. “We first encounter God in motion – His spirit moving across the face of the deep. The entire creation account can be read as the result of this motion,” with the climax of this motion being the creation of human beings in God’s image. In this way, humans are set apart from the creation of other beings, which establishes their role on earth and facilitates communication between humans and God. The passage uses imagery throughout along with the repetition of ‘evening’ and ‘morning’ in order to divide the passage into its seven-day structure. Genesis 1:1-2:3 comprises of six paragraphs for the six days of creation with the seventh paragraph emphasizing the importance of the Sabbath, repeating the theme of seven. ”The......

... available for people to buy (paper recycling) and lists outlining changes that people can make at home to help reduce waste and other actions which help to protect the natural environment. All these are examples of opportunities for individuals to take action and become more environmentally responsible. This variable is important as most of the participants in nature-oriented tourism have good intentions, which they wish to be environmentally responsible. However for some after they leave the places or venue, those good intentions may not result in changed behaviour. By providing opportunities for participants to take action as part of an interpretation programme, effective behaviour change can be prompted ‘on the spot’. Measuring the effectiveness of environmental interpretation Indicators of Tourist In this section there will be four different factors which help to measuring the effectiveness of interpretation and they are satisfaction, education, (environmental) attitude and behaviour lifestyle change This is measure when the tourist understand information about the places or regulations and there are happy with the changes that they are force/ask to make or during the trip they had some experiences which change their behaviour lifestyle or attitude towards certain things, for example: A tourist visited places which provide information about kill of sharks cutting their fins and thrown back into the sea alive, and after this trip he/she change his/her...

Progressive input have been made in establishing quality indicators and risk adjustment components to compare quality across organizations, and in analyzing processes and cultures in high-performing hospitals. There is a vast amount of knowledge to learn about the infrastructure of hospital performance. Health care organizations performance measures may include, which hospitals are improving (or deteriorating) over time and how they accomplish and provide for that improvement.

Interpretation Project 1

...Bible 110-B12 LUO Interpretation Project 1 In reading the assigned passage, Matthew 24:43-25:13, what I come away with is Jesus’ heart for preparing those whom he called. A few versus before this passage, in Matthew 24:36, we read that even Jesus does not know the day or hour of his return so he is instilling principles in his disciples about being ready for his return. These principles where recorded in the New Testament as well as passed down by early church leaders. Jesus was teaching his church about being prepaid for his return. I can only imagine what it would be like to wake up and realize that my house had been broken into in the middle of the night and I had lost something of value to me. I would think to myself that if only I would have a dog or an alarm system to alert me that I could have saved my possessions. The point that Jesus is making is that we will not get that warning and the possession at risk here is our eternal soul. This is such a strong and vivid illustration that Paul echoes it in 2 Thessalonians 5:2 as does Peter in 2 Peter 3:10. The next illustration has to do with a house as well. This time we are not the master but the servant. Jesus had taught the disciples that the greatest amongst them would be the servant. We are here as servants of Jesus who are to be busy making disciples. A true heart of repentance will seek to make disciples. How serious are we taking our assignment from the master? This passage tells us what will happen to...

...| Monotheistic Religions | | | Linda Vance | University of Phoenix | | Monotheistic Religions Monotheistic religions practice the worship to one God. Three of the oldest surviving religions to practice monotheism are Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Although Judaism, Christianity and Islam have distinguishing worship practices and philosophies, their histories parallel one another. Within this paper one will see both the similarities that tie these religions together and the distinctions that separate them. The comparison of each religion and the core figures associated with the religion; and what roles they play. The question this paper will attempt to reveal is, is, the God of Muhammad, the God of Israel, and the God of Jesus, one and the same? One of the key figures in all three religions is Abraham. To the Jews, Abraham was the first of their people to make a covenant with God. It is said that the agreement between God and Abraham would give special favor for the Israelites obedience to God (Fisher, 2005, p.230). To Islam God told Abraham and his son Ishmael to build the first Ka’bah in Mecca for the tribes of Arabia to worship (Fisher, 2005, p.362). And to Christians the genealogy of Jesus is traced back to Abraham, through David (Fisher, 2005, p.288). We can see that in Monotheistic religions all share the same general lineage and God. Even though each separate religion’s interpretation of Gods plan varies may be attributed to the creation...

But today the couple, who have shared their lives but not their homes for 23 years, are part of a growing trend of people challenging the assumption that being in love must lead to cohabiting. New research estimates that there are now as many as two million couples who, despite being in a committed relationship, live separately. The number of couples who live apart together (LATs) is now roughly the same as those who live underthe same roof. For Ms Denny and Mr Lawrence, whose attempt to live together failed dismally after just three months, the decision to live apart has been a triumph. It has, they insist, kept their relationship fresh while providing the ideal environment in which to bring up their four children (two from each partner’s previous relationship). To underline the point, they got married last year. Ms Denny, 55, and Mr Lawrence, 61, are defined as “gladly apart” LATs by Sasha Roseneil, Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies at Leeds university and author of the report On Not Living With a Partner. Based on interviews with LATs in Yorkshire, she......

...Living Life by Your Own Moral Compass Annie Dillard's essay entitled "Living Like Weasels" is a journey into the way human beings might live contrasted with the thoughts of how weasels live. In this beautifully written essay, Dillard describes her chance encounter with an ordinary weasel and how it helped her receive understanding into the difference between the way human beings live their lives and the way wild animals go about theirs. She does this by offering up vivid descriptions and images concerning her quick, but thought provoking run in with the reclusive weasel. Dillard is attempting to show us that we can discover a lot about the true way to live by observing nature's other creations. Yet, at the same time telling us that the way we live is totally up to us, which leads me to my personal interpretation. One could argue humans that lived during the Neanderthal period were similar to that of a weasel. Throughout time the mental capacity of the human has grown to be far more complex and sophisticated than earlier times. With that being said the weasel as we know acts off of pure instinct, whereas the human mind needs to process and articulate each move we make. People often search a definite answer on how to live their lives, as if there is a road map or instructions that will lead you to resolution. Actually, the truth is we, humans, are blessed with an ability that separates us from any other creature; the capacity to intelligently choose to live as we...

...Chapter one My head pounded. Touching my forehead and it felt damp. From the light coming in the window I could tell it was blood. I pulled my phone out of my back pocket. “No signal” that makes no since I always have signal in the kitchen. I wobbled over to the freezer- all the ice was melted. No power? No cell phone reception? There was a banging coming from the living room. It took me a second to hear a little girl yelling, “Ms. Mason. Ms. Mason. Open the door please.” I knew that little voice, Christine Collins the girl next door I watch. Tears rolling down her face, “Please it’s my mommy…help her.” Christine’s mother was lying on the living room floor. “Mrs. Collins? Can you hear me? It’s Beth.” I glanced at Christine whose head was berried in her hands. How do I tell an eight-year-old girl her mother wasn’t breathing? I pulled her next to me, “Sweetie” before I could talk she spoke, “Is she asleep like my daddy, Ms. Mason?” I have forgot that her father passed away less than two months ago. I just nodded, “Can I come with you?” kissing her head, “Of course you can. I can’t leave you here alone. Go get some things together.” I had no way of calling 9-1-1 so I laid a cover over her. Christine came out of her room with a book bag and a stuffed teddy bear. We went back over to my house. “Ms. mason?” I stopped her, “Christine I am only 18 you don’t have to talk to me like you do my mother honey. You can call me Beth.” She smiled, “Okay. Um Beth where is your mommy...

Philosophical Essay Part 1

...Philosophical Essay Part 1 5. Socrates asks Euthyphro, “Are morally good acts willed by God because they are morally good, or are they morally good because they are willed by God?” (1) How does this question relate to the Divine Command Theory of morality? (2) What are the philosophical implications associated with each option here? Divine command theory is widely held to be refuted by an argument known as “the Euthyphro dilemma”. This argument is named after Plato’s Euthyphro dialogue, which contains the inspiration for the argument, though not, as is sometimes thought, the argument itself. The Euthyphro dilemma rests on a modernised version of the question asked by Socrates in the Euthyphro: “Are morally good acts willed by God because they are morally good, or are they morally good because they are willed by God?” Each of these two possibilities, the argument runs, leads to consequences that the divine command theorist cannot accept. Whichever way the divine command theorist answers this question, then, it seems that his theory will be refuted. This argument might be formalised as follows: The Euthyphro Dilemma (1) If divine command theory is true then either (i) morally good acts are willed by God because they are morally good, or (ii) morally good acts are morally good because they are willed by God. (2) If (i) morally good acts are willed by God because they are morally good, then they are morally good independent of God’s will. (3) It is not the case...

The research obtained through the employee survey used descriptive statistics to reveal the findings (Lind, Marchal & Wathen, 2011). Data Scrub To present the BIMS leadership with precise results; it is necessary that a data scrub be performed to eliminate of input errors in the sample data. A known error within the data are for those who failed to provide a response to a survey question—an internal decision was made to enter a zero for any question left blank. There are several of these specific errors present in the sample data—5 zeros are present in the demographic questions and 17 zeros are present question one through 10. Additionally, there is another known error within the data, the result of a keystroke error, which resulted in invalid value of ‘6’ present in questions one through 10. The appropriate survey response for questions one through 10 should reflect a value of 1,2,3,4,5 with ‘1’ representing ‘Very Negative’ and ‘5’ representing ‘Very Positive’—there are six occurrences of this error (University of Phoenix, 2011, BIMS, Inc.
