The dream took place on the coast. I was walking down a sort of boardwalk or strand next to the water. I recognized energy analyst/activist Matthew Simmons walk by. Just as soon as I had time to notice him and giant tanker or barge slammed into the coast, taking him out and killing him instantly. I had the impression after this terrible death that either it would appear intentional and was then left wondering whether it was intentional or not. Further into the dream, I find myself amongst civilians who are being "stiff-armed" by the authorities, only the authorities are not exactly the police. Everything is being run by a criminal racket. Thugs are actually chasing individuals around with clubs. Each time I am barely able to escape and swerve through the middle of the chaos. Next I find myself captured aboard a passenger/pontoon boat. All the passengers are being held captive, including myself. I walk up to a man in charge, one of the higher up thugs on board and tell him that we are trapped in the bay and the only chance to get out is for me to fly away (astrally, of course) to get help and then return. The man in charge concedes and the dream ends.
