A Significant Time?

Last month, I wrote about a very bad dream I had.

I had checked the time when I woke up that night. It was 03:17, but that was of no significance to me then.

Last night, I went to bed quite early. I did not have a bad dream, but woke up feeling unusually hot. So hot in fact, that I threw off the duvet and sat up. The room is usually quite cold in the early hours, as there is no heating on until I get up in the morning. But last night it felt like midsummer.

I opened my Tablet to check the time. 03:17.

Now I am wondering if I should start to be concerned.

  1. too many variables to assess overall, in this share/history, to say whether you should be concerned or not – in my world – – on stuff like this? I always return to long ago, country doc viewpoint to treat myself – “either it will get worse or it will get better – I’ll know to ask for help when it gets worse” or “hm….did I turn up the heat today when that storm blew in and the temp dropped and forgot to turn it down before I went to bed” all the way up to “OMG! I”m dying! My subconcious is trying to TELL me something – – ” and at end of the day? For me? Easier overall to say, “If I die I die – do I have my affairs in order?” and …well – – check the thermostat – I can’t sleep when it’s hot – – LOL

    1. Thanks, TamrahJo.
      The heating had been off for some time before I went to bed, so feeling hot remains unexplained. Perhaps the best thing to come out of this 03:17 thing is that it will provide the basis of a new fiction serial.
      Best wishes, Pete.

  2. We had an old television show here in the United States called “The Twilight Zone.” I’m betting you’ve never seen it, but this could have been one of the episodes.

  3. That is interesting, if I wake up it’s always sometime in the three o’clock hour and then I fight to go back to sleep! It’s odd that the time is exact? It could be a message? Bible verse, code, date, address? Hum…C

  4. I watched an old Italian horror film some time ago in which the female protagonist wakes up in the middle of the night at precisely the same time. I can’t remember the name of the film, but the woman is aware of the events of each day relived, and strives to change the outcome. A lot of time loop films have been made since then (e.g., “Groundhog Day”). Perhaps you can write a horror serial? .

  5. That is weird but I’m not sure what you’d worry about. My tactic is to write these things in my diary and then look back to see if I can discern a pattern. Perhaps the brain is trying to tell you something and you need to pay attention. In any case worrying doesn’t help
