Look to lesbians for fusion solution
Thus, to sustain a continuous flow of energy, a fusion reactor must also incorporate a male force, perhaps a phallic instrument that skewers the double torus, like a churro piercing two donuts.
A dream I had suggests that my concepts may lead to success. In the dream, I have decided I must obtain a patent on my idea. As I begin to draw an illustration of a double torus, a corporation offers me a million dollars for my concept, although I know the idea is worth a billion dollars.
Next, I am in a tunnel that is part of a fusion experiment. A strong wind blows through the tunnel. Scientists are excited by the wind; they believe it means the experiment is a success. Scientists then find a dinner plate-size metal disk that has the name of a scientist, "Antichrist," engraved on it. However, the word is spelled slightly differently, as if it was in a foreign language. Again, the scientists are enthusiastic, believing the word "Antichrist" to be a sign of success.
Finally, in the dream, I see a complicated equation. I don't remember the formula, but I believe the letter "e" is repeated several times.
The part about the money seems easy enough to interpret: The dream reflects my fear that my ideas will never be fully valued. The tunnel in the dream may represent a passage from the physical world to the spiritual realm. Perhaps the wind is the "breath" of a spirit making its presence known.
The word "Antichrist" may express duality. If Christ represents the spiritual world, the Antichrist represents the physical world. Thus, "Antichrist" is a material equivalent (fusion reactor) of a spiritual or symbolic idea (sexual metaphor). That "Antichrist" is in a foreign language could mean that the scientists are dealing with ideas that are "foreign" to them. The name may also identify me as the Antichrist.
Mandala The disk on which the word "Antichrist" is discovered is suggestive of a mandala, the "magic circle" representing balance and order in the dreamer's inner being, according to psychologist Carl Jung. The mysterious equation at the conclusion of the dream may represent my own efforts and frustrations in trying to decipher the secrets of creation. While the e in the equation may have some symbolic meaning, the letter e is also used in physics and mathematics. In some studies, -e denotes an electron, while e+ represents a positron.
I am not the only person who dreams of a fusion reactor. Let us visit the nuclear power plant in the town of Springfield, where safety inspector Homer Simpson sits at a control panel. He begins to daydream, not realizing that his subconscious is pointing to the creation of a fusion reactor . . . "Mmmm donuts" (or now, “Mmmm lesbians”).
Addendum March 14, 2018. I am watching the Doctor Who: The Beginning DVD set, featuring the original Doctor, William Hartnell. In the first Daleks story arc, which concluded in 1964, the leader of the machine mutants announces they will exterminate their enemy by bombarding the countryside with radiation from their nuclear reactor: evidence that my "reactor as weapon" idea had a surprising precedent.
