Theological Research

Black Angels

Before reading “Theological Research” please begin with my “Journey” to understand the essence of where I’m leading you to…

Phase Two – Theological Research

In order to understand, “Where we came from ?”, it’s essential to ponder into the Theological Research of mankind. Why is it, man-made religions has such a foothold on us ? What makes us so vulnerable to an imaginary God in the sky ? Is it because we’re a selfish species, where we can’t come to terms with our inevitable death?

I rely on science, to the point where the lines become murky, flowing into the mysterious “grey area”.

Heading into the ambiguous region is where the heart of science-fiction takes over. My screenplay “Black Angels”, may or may not be science-fiction. What was science-fiction, isn’t science-fiction today, as science has grown into a better understanding of ourselves and the universe around us. Black Angels is my collection of countless years of research on man-made religions, scriptural scrolls, Egyptian hieroglyphs, Sumerian writings and ancient archeological discoveries throughout our planet.  My search for the truth was nine long years not including the seven years of rewrites.  

The first part of my research, lead me to investigate the “missing-link” of our ancestors and God fearing religions. It was essential to ask these questions:

  • Who made us and why?  
  • Is the bible really the “word” of God?  
  • Why does mankind rely on faith alone?  
  • And if there is a God, why would he allow innocent children to die?  
  • Free Will is always the answer, but isn’t that just an easy out?   

Unfortunately religion has plagued our world from the very beginning, killing all in the name of GOD.  Years of studying various religions throughout our world, it was evident.  Religion was man-made in order to control the masses, using its power and wealth to rule above others. However, do I believe in God ?  

The answer is “Yes”, but not the way you may believe in your God.

Professor Steven Hawking elegantly phrases it this way,” … While there’s life, there is hope.  I am not religious in the normal sense. I believe the universe is governed by the laws of science. The laws may have been decreed by God, but God does not intervene to break the laws.”

I agree.

I too am not religious to society’s norm.  God is an important equation, but my “God” existence is likely not how most religious people think of as their God.  God to me, is a spiritual organized existence, where an essence of our souls will follow into the centre of its realm, unconscious to what is next.

But wait.

I’m not talking about us as individuals flowing around the cosmos like spiritual ghosts.  Nothing like that at all. I believe once our biological human-shell dies, it turns to dust,(unless, of course, it’s well preserved).  Generally speaking, there’s a small part of us, referred to as a soul. It may be, it’s our souls that regenerate into a new life. This means, something beyond our understanding governs the motion of life and death.  

With death there’s always life – somewhere.

Throughout history, countless prophets claim they were the “human existence” of God, I believe each tried to convince their people that everyone is capable of being a part of God.  In a way, its true.  For every religion there’s a prophet, leading the way to a better spiritual self, respecting others without greed or selfishness.  If we didn’t live in fear and took the time to think of others, our world could live in harmony.  

Famous prophets of yesterday and today all have the same message. But, mankind always seem to turn it around into something evil, benefiting their own cause. If Jesus saw what was happening today, he would be distraught.  Jesus said to his people, Ephesians 2:18 “…for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.”

Jesus is indeed speaking the truth. 

Through God, our souls have access to the Spirit of God. Jesus is simply stating, “Every man, woman and child has full access to the spiritual realm of existence.”  Through Jesus himself, was a simpler way to explain to his people, salvation through him was better than the rulers of Rome.  Of course, the Jewish priests were outraged by Jesus act.  In those times, it’s blasphemy to announce you are the Son of God.  

It didn’t turn out well for Jesus.  

As far as the Jewish aristocrats were concerned, Jesus was a man, just another prophet of that era in time.  Unfortunate for Jesus, they felt he went too far and should be punished, using the Romans to carry out their dirty work.  

Did he preform all the miracles as said?  

I’m unconvinced.  Even today, people exaggerate for personal gain, either to save their own skin or from being such a loyal follower.  Followers will over-exaggerate placing their prophet as a “Holy Devine Sign to Salvation”.  Jesus was one of the most convincing prophets during the Roman era. But some scholars believe, “…Roman aristocrats used Jesus to control the poor.”   In fact, it’s been said, the Romans convinced Jesus to act as a “Saviour” of his people.  It was actually,”…a sophisticated government propaganda exercise used to pacify the subjects of the Roman Empire.” But things went terribly wrong when Jesus started to believe in his part.  It was just a matter of time before they had to get rid of Jesus.  Never did they realize, Jesus became a martyr, a symbolism of Christianity and freedom.  

If it wasn’t for Roman Emperor, Constantine the Great, who wanted Christianity for his own selfish gain, this form of religion would have become just another cult of its time.  But, “…In 313, Constantine and Licinius issued the Edict of Milan decriminalizing Christian” leading the way to one of the most powerful religions of its day, right up to the very present. If you go back in history, how many prophets of God have there been?  You would be surprise to know, there were 124,000 prophets, not including the last 100 years. 

That’s a lot of prophets, wouldn’t you say? 

As always, mankind uses another for something in return.  We are unbelievably a selfish arrogant race.  Will we ever free ourselves from the grip of man-made religion? 

It all depends on our destiny.

The New Eden vs Eden – Star Trek

I’m a fan of Star Trek ever since I was a kid. Today, we’re thrilled to be continuing our Star Trek Mission with the new TV Series ‘Star Trek Discovery’. In Season Two, I found similarities with my screenplay ‘Black Angels’ to the “New Eden” Episode 2 #StarTrekDiscovery

OK – Where do I begin: Believe vs Science – the two are my life’s goal & written screenplays, to the age old question,”Who made us ?”

Twenty years ago I began writing my thoughts of how religion controls the masses vs an Intelligent humanoid species who came to earth 100 – 300,000 yrs ago, changing ape-mans DNA. This has followed me ever since I began questioning the roots of man-made religion, when I was 10 years old. It was only when I was 30, where my thoughts appeared on paper.

Fast forward another twenty years later, I have finished writing my screenplay ‘BLACK ANGELS’ :

LOGLINE : Drug addict war hero seeks revenge for brother’s death, risking his crew in mining expedition on planet ALPHA XL-420 for priceless Red Crystal, essential to saving their species from deadly virus.

It’s the beginning…

BLACK ANGELS is my take on an Alien Intelligent Species coming to earth in haste, to save their species from a deadly virus. To use, control & further their DNA; in fact, the Sirian species crossed their DNA with Ape-man.

However, because the Sirian Species altered the evolutionary timeline of Ape-man, human beings today have serious emotional side-effects, such as anger, hate and so on… but that’s another story.

Read my back story.

In my screenplay I answer what happens to our ancestors. For example,”Have they even left or are they still monitoring their DNA creation today ?”

‘BLACK ANGELS’ is only the beginning, as I explore the possibilities, not just from our “Past Ancestors”, but as well as the “Present” and “Future”. With adjoining science-fiction stories, I have explored many avenues, such as Alien Abduction Report – Earth Missions 2013.

Getting back to “New Eden”, Season 2 – Episode 2 on Star Trek Discovery, I thought it was interesting #StarTrekDiscovery writers explored “New Eden” using the “Red Angels”, while my story is related to “Black Angels”. Don’t get me wrong, I’m NOT implying they’re stealing my storyline. It’s just coincidence, simply because we’re all thinking about how religion came about vs the science. As science-fiction writers, we speculate & explore all possibilities.

In Episode 2 ‘New Eden’ I would like to think, is a continuation from my screenplay ‘Black Angels’ in a future setting. It’s goes in correlation with my theory on our founding ancestors, who started the genetic process of mankind.

IF you’ve watched Episode 2, ‘New Eden’ it explores the mysterious ‘Red Angel’ removing a group of humans off earth during WWIII, placing them in a new world, light years from earth, where Captain Pike & crew happens to find them by a beacon. It’s illogical to assume humans had warp capability until “First Contact”*, therefore there must of been some sort of intervention from an intelligent alien race.

As said, in “Black Angels” my story starts in the very beginning of mankind’s existence. An experimental “Eden” took place, as the Sirian Gods altered Ape-man into the Homo-Sapiens we are today. Here’s an introductory video I made.

In conclusion, it’s nice to see Captain Pike again on Star Trek and I certainly love how the writers are going with Star Trek Discovery.

* Star Trek: First Contact plot starts in the 24th century when Captain Jean Luc Picard “disobeys orders and heads for Earth, where a single Borg Cube ship holds its own against a group of Starfleet vessels.” It’s then they continue its pursuit on the Borg only for them to disappear.

“As the sphere disappears, Enterprise discovers Earth has been altered – it is now populated entirely by Borg. Realizing the Borg have used time travel to change the past, Enterprise follows the sphere through the vortex.

Enterprise arrives hundreds of years in its past on April 4, 2063, the day before humanity’s first encounter with alien life after Zefram Cochrane’s historic warp drive flight; the crew realizes the Borg are trying to prevent first contact.”

What IF…

Oumuamua

It’s been said by Prof. Abraham Loeb ( who so happens to be the chairman of Harvard University’s Astronomy Department) that,” This could be one of the greatest discoveries in human history.”

As said,”It’s his scientific belief, “Oumuamua” could possibly be an ancient spaceship sent a long time ago from Vega, the brightest star in the Lyra constellation, which is 26 light-years from us.” If you’re into scifi movies like I am, you’ll remember the 1997 film “Contact,” Vega is the star Dr. Eleanor Arroway ( played by my favourite actress, Jodie Foster) sent radio waves, in search of other alien civilizations.

Oumuamua is the first object in history to pass through our solar system ,originating from another constellation. It’s very old and after many cycles of wandering through our solar system, it has deteriorated, resembling an asteroid.

However, what IF…

In my art, I try to imagine what it may have looked like thousands of years ago. Look at the different stages I’ve presented. Maybe its crew suffered damaged and has been circling our solar system ever since. Maybe there is or was another civilization, like us, exploring our earth 100,000 years ago…

Ancient Civilization

What IF it’s true?

Our Living Hell

PRIDE had cast him above all others.

Darkness slowly absorbed his soul.

Lambs of his Cult are blinded by all the GLORY.

In their EYES, he could do no harm.

As if a KING, he becomes narcissistic, filling his ego with worldly pleasures, ignoring the poor, the sick and vulnerable.

Cloaked as an Angel of Light, the shadow of EVIL spreads across the EARTH.

He is but a MAN, absorbed in his own glory.

Little does he know, he is just one of many.

He is nothing more then a pawn of life, covered in his own waste of greed.

O to the HORRORS of mankind – DARKNESS has filled every corner, every seed of life.

What was right, is now wrong.

What was wrong, is now right.

The living are now the DEAD.

AS I pass through the ‘Valley of Life’, something stirs inside of me.

Something is wrong, but I can’t see it, I can’t taste it, I can’t touch it.

I can’t say what it is, but I know something is seriously wrong.

Is it a DREAM or is it a NIGHTMARE ?

Suddenly, I open my EYES…and there it is, as plain as day.

My heart is filled with tears of sorrow.

OH my dear GOD, I AM awake.

WE are in the VALLEY OF DEATH.

I AM a witness to the HORRORS on Earth.

I AM a witness to the PRIDE of MANKIND.

I AM a witness to the EVIL of DARKNESS.

OH MY DEAR GOD, I AM witness to HELL on EARTH !

By Bari Demers

MEANING OF HELL ON EARTH :

We are born on earth, believing this life of ours is a privilege. We govern ourselves believing we are doing right, but inside we know it’s all wrong. We humans may do as we please, without consequences. We like to think our laws of justice have real consequences, but really, it’s the living who prevail in the end, no matter how evil YOU are.

Our lives are filled with materialistic things which have no meaning. Our thirst for more hunts us to the day we die. We are never satisfied with what we have.

As it was written, it’s been said the meek shall inherit the Earth.

But in reality, the meek are nothing more then the ignorant. Our world is twisted with evil throughout our very existence. We like to believe we are doing right, but we know we are doing more harm, then good. Mankind leaves a trail of blood shed and destruction in its path, destroying everything we touch.

We begin to question all around us, why are things so wrong ?

Why are the weak, the poor, the vulnerable tortured ?

Why do we experience the worse in life, trying to make the best of life?

There is no justice. There is only pain.

It’s then we realize, we are the LIVING DEAD, already tortured throughout our lives until the day we are buried into the ground, into the dust of the forgotten.

WE are the living dead on earth – WE are on earth, living within the HELL of reality.

WE will grow old and die. This is indeed HELL, simply because, after this LIFE, there isn’t any life after death. This is the end of everything we know, soon to be forgotten in time.

WE must have been brought here from the Cosmos of Life in search of ourselves, only to realize there isn’t anything else.

WE are in a twisted fate of anguish – WE ARE ALL the living dead tortured on a hellish earth, spreading our seed of misery across the universe.

GOD has already given JUDGEMENT to us ALL.

Have a wonderful day – Welcome to Hell.

BLACK ANGELS

Nefertiti and Black Angels

The ART piece of Nefertiti and its relationship to Black Angels by Bari Demers.

About Nefertiti:

As you see above, my art piece is the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, Royalty of the Pharaoh Akhenaten dynasty. However, you can see a remarkable change, including her alien eyes, I cleverly crafted.

Queen Nefertiti is indeed a historical wonder, as there isn’t any trace of a tomb where she may lie today. One recent theory was believed her secret grave might have been hidden beneath the Tutankhamun’s tomb. Unfortunately, a radar scan preformed by a National Geographic team, turned up no visible trace.

The other theory is ( according to Wiki ) “…Nefertiti ruled as Neferneferuaten after her husbands death.”

Whatever may be the case, their dynasty, indeed, was in turmoil.

Nefertiti and Akhenaten ruled together from 1353 to 1336 B.C. Their New Kingdom of the 18th Dynasty turned controversial, due to the upheaval of a new religious structure, where only ONE GOD, ATUM was introduced, rejecting the earlier Egyptian beliefs of many GODS. After their deaths, the Egyptian Priests defaced all transcripts and monuments, changing back to the original worshipping of, “The Gods of the Heavens.”

Unfortunately today, archeologists are having a rough time trying to solve the mystery of “Where does the Tomb of Nefertiti lie ?”

It may be as simple as tomb robbers have already taken the riches, fading into history. Optimist I am ( sound like Yoda – lol Read also Obi-Wan) it’s my belief it’s just a matter of time before they solve the puzzle behind our mysterious Queen Nefertiti.

Graphic Art Explained:

The before image ( as you see) is the original artifact, presently on display at the Neues Museum in Berlin, Germany.

[Follow me on Instagram for more digital art displays.]

My transformation of Nefertiti took over 8 hours, into the image you see now. There are several stages of intricate artwork to transform my art of Nefertiti into the goddess for my genre science-fiction horror screenplay Black Angels.

I’m NOT a professional graphic artist but a freelance screenwriter. Even still, I do have two years of Applied Arts from Okanagan College in Kelowna , BC, Canada 🇨🇦(way back in the 70’s). Since then technology and graphic art techniques have changed drastically with the help of computers. If I were to restart my career today I would apply at the Visual College of Art and Design (VCAD) in Vancouver. Here they provide excellent courses on Visual Effects Art and Design, Graphic Design, Game Development and Design. Maybe then I would be accepted at MPC Film ( Movie Picture Film Company), also in Vancouver.

As they say,” It is what it is”, meaning I can’t change my history.

However, any ART I do is often an expression of who I am inside. Be it, writing my science-fiction stories or painting, it means so much to me personally. Maybe one day I will be as famous as Picasso, like so many dead artist are. Who knows?

The Relationship of Black Angels :

Lately, my concentration of my art is simply to promote my screenplay Black Angels. I want my audience (scifi fans) to envision my characters within my storyline.

BLACK ANGELS – “Pride had cast him down..O to Sacred Earth…a Black Evil has spread across the Lands…O to the horrors of Earth.” BMD

It’s inevitable.

Black Angels is a science-fiction horror genre based on the arrival of our Ancestors and how it changed mankind forever.

Nefertiti is a descendant of Queen Siri .

Queen Siri is believed to be one of “The Gods of the Heavens” who traveled here from Planet Sirius 5, within the Canis Major Constellation.

Even though ancient Egyptians built remarkable architectural pyramids, they still weren’t the true gods from the heavens. Even though the “Gods of the Heavens” did visit earth, they left due to mysterious reasons. I believe my screenplay has cracked the case on what really happened to our alien ancestors. Queen Siri was a descendant of the true gods, who helped the human Egyptian race to form their ancient culture. After the “Gods of the Heavens” disappeared, they tried to imitate the gods as best as they could, but still were not as effective as the gods were.

The pyramid structures of today are a good example of this.

Nefertiti was indeed a real Egyptian Queen and a legacy to the Egyptian history. Even though she was descendant of Queen Siri , only Queen Siri and her crew were responsible in transforming us human beings into what we are today. It’s my believe, theses gods were a highly advanced civilization who discovered earth over 150,000 years ago, in the time mankind was still trying to get a foothold on earth. With cross genetic manipulation, man’s evolution was fast forward into the creation of a different kind human race. Different in, if mankind continued on without altering our genetics and followed the evolutionary timeline, it would have taken man another two millions years to develop correctly.

It brings into question, “why we are the way we are today?”

Today, it’s obvious how a destructive race of human beings we can be. Our history and religion surely shows our cruel vindictive selfs. Maybe if the “Gods of the Heavens” were here today, guiding us into a better race of people, (we so far miserably failed) we may have become a more peaceful respectable human species, without war, crime and deceit.

Unfortunately, something terrible happened to our true ancestors and it’s my belief my story of Black Angels explains their fate. It may be, they’re secretly here on Earth – you never know!

I hope you enjoy my ART and stories. Please support my efforts by either purchasing my art or gifting within my stories.

We are Illogical 

The Okanagan- My Home
Today, as I write, ‘We are illogical’, I have arrived in the sunny Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada 🇨🇦. Throughout the fall and winter months you’ll find me feverishly writing science-fiction thrillers and assorted screenplays, such as BLACK ANGELS (ready for release) and short stories, like Android Alisha. But during the months of June, July and August, you’ll find me at my summer home, partaking in outdoor activities within our Canadian oasis, well known by celebrities across North American. In fact, as we speak, there’s a couple of filming crews setting up in Kelowna, BC. This may be the summer home for the rich and famous, but to me, it’s simply where I was raised as a kid. It’s indeed my home. For Canada 150 or your next vacation I highly recommend you take a visit to the sunny Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada 🇨🇦.

Black Angels by Bari Demers
WE ARE ILLOGICAL 

My creative art of writing can be referred to as the ‘Vincent Van Gogh art-impressionist-style’, left with secret hidden messages throughout each paragraph. Writing is an expression from my inner soul, hoping to make a difference to my readers, as they begin to explore the plots and twists behind my stories.

Throughout my life I have questioned our reality.  The how and why of our very existence is indeed intriguing, leading me to believe the possibilities of a higher intelligence far surpassing our own. I like to refer them as our ancestral GODS, who have left behind visible landmarks and scriptural clues. It’s even speculated the GODS of the Heavens may have altered our DNA and evolutionary timeline, making us who were are today. 

With the ways of our human race, it frustrates me to no end, “Why do we react in such an illogical behavioural pattern, causing physical harm to others, over our proposed belief in religion and/or power ?” 

As Mr Spock would say,” “May I say that I have not thoroughly enjoyed serving with humans? I find their illogic and foolish emotions a constant irritant.” 

Writing is my passion and speaks out to our foolish ways, thinking we have complete control over everything. Where, in reality, we are nothing more then a small dot in the evolutionary timeline, waiting to be exterminated by the forces of nature, much more powerful then we could ever comprehend.  

Our historical past is extremely violent, as is our present day. From dictatorship to religious fanatics, its remarkable our human species hasn’t yet been terminated. We are indeed an illogical species, forgetting about the needs of the many and too many of us are self absorbed in the needs of the one. 

We are illogical. 

It’s my hope my grandchildren will one day explore the fruits of our universe while building the foundation of their generation into a more stable civilized society expressing the love for others. If not, it’s just a matter of time our species will become extinct, like our predecessors, the dinosaurs. 

Maybe one day, millions of years in the future, another carbon-based species will find and decipher today’s article, taking heed to the warning signs of our demise. THEM, being an advanced civilization who were nurtured by millions of years of unaltered evolution, they may wonder how these savage human beings ever survived at all. 

OR 

Maybe today, the younger generation will read this article, realizing the fate of mankind, taking steps to eradicate the diseased virus of being self absorbed and begin a brighter future for all of mankind, where freedom is for all, wars no longer exist and the meaning of peace and love is for everyone. It will also mean we must explore other worlds, in order to remove the hardships of Mother Earth, as our footprints continuously places havoc on our planet’s fragile environment. We can be the loving caretakers of earth 🌏 and other M-based planets we visit, realizing our world is a living breathing entity of life, essential to our own well being. We still have a chance to grow into responsibility human beings with the potential to become caring individuals who takes our ‘footprint’ on earth seriously. If not, we may never repair the harm we’ve placed upon on our own beloved planet, we call HOME. And, if so, we don’t have an right to eject our human-virus onto other planets

Kelowna BC by Bari Demers
We are illogical but we can learn to be so much more. Sadly, we have the potential, but never seem to use it for the betterment of mankind.

Dreaming Las Vegas

Vegas Reviews by Bari Demers
Today I have to share with you one of my strangest dreams, I like to call : DREAMING LAS VEGAS but before I do, I’ve just heard Don Rickles has passed away at age 90.  Last year I wrote a small article about him HERE.

One thing for sure, in this dream of mine, I’m certainly considered a Vegas Lover, to be dreaming such a bizarre storyline.  It’s a crazy dream, to be sure.  It also means I need to make another visit to Las Vegas.  

So here goes my dream : DREAMING LAS VEGAS

For some strange reason, in my dream, I’m “All By Myself” … as my mind picks up the original song by Eric Carmen

Lyrics

When I was young

I never needed anyone

And makin’ love was just for fun

Those days are gone

Livin’ alone

I think of all the friends I’ve known

But when I dial the telephone

Nobody’s home

All by myself

Don’t want to be, all by myself anymore

All by myself

Don’t want to live, all by myself anymore

Hard to be sure

Some times I feel so insecure

And love so distant and obscure

Remains the cure

(Celine Dion has sung this song many times and one of the times, was during her Las Vegas performance in 2016 after the passing of her husband. An emotionally time for dear Celine.) 

Here’s the video

 

Continue : 

I’m in a long luxurious black limo. The interior is lavishly decorated with all the bells and whistles you can think of. And get this, it even has a hot tub – go figure! I warned you it was a crazy dream 🙄. 

Arriving, my personal female driver kindly opens the door. Right away, as my hand touches hers, I noticing her long graceful soft hands with fashionable fingernails. Her nails were presented with a series of tasteful sparkles and a nice shade of dark pink. I remember the scent of her perfume instantly ; could tell right away it was an expensive Christian No. 1*

The reason is, my mom use to wear this kind of perfume on special occasions.  


Moving on : 

Getting out of the limo I noticed for the first time how beautiful my chauffeur was.  Her stunning green eyes sparkled a glimmering colour of emerald, through the light of the morning desert sun. Underneath the chauffeur style hat, her long brunette hair was tasteful tied into a ponytail.  Her smile was so captivating and innocent, it was if she caught me her web.

I was in love.  

“Mr Watts? Sir?” questioned Chris, ” Is everything alright?”

Snapping out of it, I smiled and said,” No…I mean yes …I mean …Thank you Chris.”  It then dawned on me, my first girlfriend’s name was Christine ( Chris for short ) ; maybe that’s why I was so captivated? 

Chris asked,” Will there be anything else Mr Watts?”  

In my dream, I thought, “That’s strange, she keeps calling me by the name of Watts.  My last name isn’t Watts,” I shrugged my shoulders and decided it really didn’t matter. I handed her a $20 tip and said,” No. Thank you.  Now remember to pick me up in five days. ”

She nodded and said,” Of course Sir, after all, I’m your personal chauffeur.”  

I thought for second, ” This is crazy, I can’t afford a personal driver?What does she mean? I’m not a rich movie star with my own personal entourage? ” Oh well…decided to go with it, shrugging my shoulders. 


Looking up at the lavish Vegas Resort, it features an architectural skyscraper with brilliant greyish-blue glass panels, as far as the eye can see. For some strange reason I have no idea the name of this 5 Star Resort, only that it was the best-of-the-best in Las Vegas. You know, the one celebrities and rich tycoons find favourable because of the luxurious service and expensive taste.

Heading into this upscale Vegas Resort, I was quickly greeted at the door by the GM of the Hotel. I thought, ” Whoa! Talk about service!” He reached out to shake my hand and said,” It a pleasure to see you again Mr Watts. I will personally take you to your room.” 

Again I thought,” My name isn’t Watts?! ” But whatever, I just go with it. 

We head over to the personal VIP elevator with only one button to press, featuring the Presidential Suite.

I’m thinking,” This is crazy, I can’t afford this?!” 

Reaching top floor, the golden doors of the elevator opened with a soft swish (just like the doors on Star Trek – go figure!) The GM showcases the lavish Egyptian-themed room featuring everything you can imagine, fit for any Pharaoh, Queen or King. Awestruck, I slowly walked towards the seven foot glass doors to the grand balcony overlooking the spectacular view of the Vegas Strip. The doors open automatically, peering over (looking way down), I could see the hustle and bustle of tourists, seemingly tiny as scurrying ants. 

You know that feeling when you first arrive in Vegas ? That satisfied feeling of awe and excitement, ready to take on-the-town? That’s how I felt. 

The GM said,” Your entourage will be here soon Mr Watts.”  

I nodded. Walking back in, it was then I noticed someone was putting my cloths away in the drawers from my one and only suitcase, thinking,” Boy my suitcase holds a lot of stuff.” It seemed endless, like a bottomless pit ! 

Then, just like that my dream took on another side.  

For some strange reason my room was filled with other people. I mean, like complete strangers. Like we were in a group of tourists, all doing the same tour. Some were busy emptying their luggage, as another would make a grand entrance by falling heavily on the bed next to mine. Beside my bed I noticed a stocked bar with my very own bartender. 

An attractive women beside me said,” Oh Wow! Aren’t you lucky! Your bed is the most lavish of them all.” 

The minute she said that I got that strange feeling I was indeed in the wrong room. This can’t be right? Not to embarrass myself, I quietly left the room. After all, I didn’t want these strangers to realize I was given a room I couldn’t possibly afford.  

It was then, I was on a mission to find my rightful room.  

Eventually I found the most strangest elevator, looking more of a circular laundry-shoot then an elevator. Trying to open this 18th century styled copper cylinder door, I quickly smelled something burning. You know, that electrical burning smell ? The door seemed stuck and it grind to a halt. Grabbing the door, I muscled my way in, fearing I’d miss my ride down. It’s then I realize there’s others in an adjacent elevator, beside me. As a matter of fact, it’s a series of cylinder elevators, on what seems like a roller coaster ride.  

Yes. That’s it, exactly like a roller coaster ride!

I hear one of the guys talking to his friend,” What the hell?! Why is this guy holding up the ride?” 

Below me I noticed the open grated floor, and underneath was this long endless track for a roller coaster. I was like,” Oh boy! What did I get myself into this time? I can’t stand rollercoaster rides!” Just like that I’m rushed down at supersonic speeds, heading into oblivion, like some Interstellar Spaceship. Suddenly I felt nauseated. Eyes wide open, I began to sweat with complete fear, as my fingers gripped the bars for dear life. 

Suddenly it was all over. 


I had reached the 8th Floor. Feeling light-headed my body staggered out of this peculiar elevator. Relieved to exit this time machine, my whole body felt like a ton-of-bricks. It’s like I just came back from a month aboard the ISS ( International Space Station), with me feeling like jello. 

I couldn’t seem to lift myself, as gravity took over. 

After some time of just laying there, in the middle of this Vegas Resort hallway, I finally managed to get up, edging myself against the wall (like a drunken sailer) trying to find my room. 

There it is ! Room 80000090 – Go figure ! 

I felt my pockets and there it was, a pass key. Sliding it into the door, the mechanic noise you’re so familiar with, opened the door. Staggering into this dark room, the drapes opened automatically.
It was an upgraded Vegas room overlooking a beautiful courtyard featuring an oasis of inviting pools. On one end of the 1200 sq ft room there was a stocked open-bar nestled into the corner. To the west wall was a grand Samsung 110-inch Ultra HDTV TV. In front we’re four leather Theatre lounging chairs. Along the east wall sat a dining room table, with a fully stocked kitchenette. 

Looking into the next room, it featured a huge King-sized bed with a pillow-top mattress, feather down comforter and Egyptian cotton linen. Just to my right, a marble-floor washroom showcased a glass enclosed shower, a modern deep bathtub, double sinks and a make-up side table.

I knew right then and there, I had reached the correct room.

Throwing myself onto the bed, I quickly crashed into a deep sleep. Opening my eyes I then realized it was all but a dream. 

But, oh boy, did it ever seem real! 

As a screenwriter, I just had to share this incredible dream of mine – I hope you enjoyed my crazy dream.  It clear I’m a Vegas Lover, subconsciously thinking of my next trip to wonderful wonderland Las Vegas.  This could possibly be made into a short film, I’m sure.
