The Collective Consciousness This Day in History

 

Lenard Dawe
It's funny how when something is put into thought, it enters the collective conscious and becomes accessible to us all.   It's Jungian 101 really.  Take for instance WWII and the Crossword Panic of May 1944.  The Allied Forces were planning the liberation of France by landing in Normandy.  The operation was called "Operation Overlord."  Top Secret.   So, you can imagine how nuts the British secret service were when they noticed that the crossword puzzles printed in the Daily Telegraph newspaper contained a surprisingly large number of words that were code-names relating to the coming invasion.  The answers to two clues were "Utah" and "Omaha"-- names that had been given to beaches in Normandy where American troops were to disembark.   Shortly afterwards, crosswords were published containing the answers "Mulberry," the code-name for the floating harbor, and "Neptune," a code-name for naval support.

At first, security agents were tempted to dismiss the whole matter as coincidence, but when a clue was given referring to a "Big-Wig," with the answer "Overlord," they began to worry that the crossword was somehow being used to warn the Germans.  Two officers were duly dispatched to interview the crossword compiler--a fifty-four-year-old teacher name Lenard Dawe.  After some close questioning, the agents became convinced that Dawe had no knowledge of the impending landings, and that his clues and their answers had indeed been a series of strange coincidence.

On this day in 1945, Soviet and American troops met at the River Elbe cutting Germany in two.  WWII was over and the Cold War had begun.  
 
Unfortunately, today, the Russian invasion in Ukraine is worsening.  Vladimir Putin's Troops are accused of more mass killings, rape, and pillaging.  Those things that come with war no matter who is responsible.  It just happens when people are made to do killings, that thing that goes against of all that is good.  

Last night I had a terrible dream.  It was a flying dream.  The strange thing is I was on a dragon and saw mountains, ice, and snow covered with the USA flag.  I fear it is a warning that the USA is about to get dragged into this war.  Think about it, it only takes one accidental bombing to start another world war.  

I chant that this doesn't happen and I am wrong.

Here is a war film I put together for the event.  It's an old student film.  I added Russian subtitles as an option in hopes that maybe, just maybe, someone sees this and realizes how stupid war really is.

Peace brothers and sisters.
