Dream Signs is a supernatural thriller / adventure thriller. I just completed the book about two weeks ago… Here is a dustcover blurb…
The reality is we never experience reality we only experience what is inside our minds. Your life, my life, everyone’s life is a vast consensual lucid dream within a dream, a naturally occurring virtual reality in which we are all entangled and the only way to wake up is to go to sleep or die.
Some people have mastered the art of dreams of clarity, and through that learned how to mentally influence the virtual reality of others. This hard earned knowledge has made them some of the most powerful people alive. These truths and skills are the greatest esoteric mysteries hidden in plain sight for epoch after epoch, for these skills not only unlock our lucid dreams masquerading as objective reality, but the mystery of life itself, and the great cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. Tibetan Dream Yoga is but one part of these hidden truths as are the esoteric teachings of many other great religions.
Michael Smith is a true man of science, though Smith is not his real name. He is a Berkeley professor of anthropology and archeology who is about to receive his 15 minutes of fame. For his entire life he has been obsessed with seeking that one great find that changes history as we know it. After terrible hardship, he has unearthed something impossibly ancient for which he has been searching, but it is also something for which he has no more comprehension than ant has for the sole of a boot. Holding onto this discovery may cost him everything and everyone he loves.
Smith suddenly finds he is caught in the center of both a great conspiracy and deadly conflict to monopolize this power to influence people. Right and wrong soon become blurred in his race to recover long lost ancient technology in a world where lucid dreams and reality are often confused. At times Smith wonders if he is going insane. His confusion is not an accident. There is someone out there in the shadows seeking to steal the ancient technology Smith has discovered and bring about a dark future for all mankind.
