The Cacophony of Screaming Stars

Amorphous blobs float in front of him, taking on strange forms before morphing into the familiar shapes of numerals, prime numbers.

The thirteen loomed at him for a moment before attacking and swallowing up the 3, shifting around to become a 16 which glowed brightly and threatened to blind him as he watched.
He wakes up.
The mathematician begins to suspect that his dreams are interfering with his everyday life.
He believes he would be more productive and more useful part of society if he could get more restful sleep.
If he could sleep at night then he could figure out things during the day, he feels his accomplishments are being stolen from him by his dreams.
He has a sleep study done, an MRI, goes to psychiatrists and doctors. Everyone says he's fine.
Eventually, after much searching he finds a doctor of alternative medicine who nods sagely as he describes his symptoms.

Trial
"If I knew where we were going, I wouldn't have asked!"
"Don't act more stupid than you already are."
They trudged through the thick vegetation of the jungle floor. It was dark deep beneath the canopy, mushrooms glowed in nooks of the trees and green moss and vines hung down everwhere. From the ground between the massive trees sprouted wondrous blue and orange flowers and tall black stalks of black bamboo sprouting white and pink flowers. All of which the pair hacked at with broad blades and trampled without a second glance. Blown glass vials full of luminescent liquid hung from their necks, lighting their way. A concentrate from the local mushrooms and a cave growing slime.
"Look why can't you just tell me? I want to hear you say it."
"No. It won't make you feel any better. I don't have any good news for you."
The younger of the two looked morose, but kept cutting his way through the woody stalks. The stalks would grow higher than either of the young men were tall in just a few days.

Obsidian - 1 and 2
Visible only as an absence of stars, its presence felt more in the bones than seen by eyes.
A subtle itching in the skin followed by a cold breeze.
Slicing through the sky of endless night an obsidian dagger a gentle shimmer - or perhaps a shudder - in the light of the stars in its wake.
Fifty years ago it was born of a hybrid of "found" technology and cutting edge theories as an experiment in pushing the envelope of what could be considered possible.
It was a massive failure. Investments were unreturned, reputations were destroyed, and millions of lives were lost.
The religious said that we had meddled in the affairs of the gods when we tried to break the rules they had set for in our universe.
The general consensus among scientists merely remarked that what was attempted was impossible.
Both came away from the event feeling vindicated. Book deals were inked, competing films went into post production before becoming mired in the legal battles: desperate survivors throwing a pity party

Literature
The power in our stories.
Tonight is the beginning of Rosh Hashanah, which literally translates to 'head of the year.' It's the first day, One Tishrei, of the new Jewish Year 5772. The Rabbis teach us that Rosh Hashanah is the anniversary of the creation of man and woman.
Isn't that sort of odd?
There were six days of creation (and one day of rest) in the first week of the world. We are not starting at the beginning of this biblical week, nor really at the end. Instead we start our calendar, and every new year, at the anniversary of day 6, the creation of man. Why day six? Is it because humanity might, perhaps, be a bit egotistical?
I think there is more to it then that.
Is there something else that makes day 6 special? In Genesis, chapter two, we receive the second version of the creation story. God has created Adam but, before creating Eve, Adonai has a task for the first man. God brings forth every beast and bird He has created and presents them to Adam. The Torah states that God "brought them to the man to
