Characters: me, fortune teller

Note The date on this entry is very approximate, as I documented it long after the fact due to its lasting significance.
In a non-lucid dream I was visiting a fortune teller, and felt a little awkward to be there. It was hot, and a fan was running behind her desk.
me: "How much is this going to cost?"
fortune teller: "It will be $20 per hour."
Realizing that I'd only been there 15 minutes so far, and that this was pretty cheap entertainment, I decided to relax.
me: "Okay that's fine. I'll take one hour then."
fortune teller: "The most important thing you need to learn about is going to be the concept of sether. It was outlined best in a book by..."
When I woke up, my face was toward a fan next to my bed that was running.
I'd never heard the word 'sether' before, nor had I ever studied Tarot--despite taking a few paranormal things seriously, I skip horoscopes and tarot. But looking up sether up on Google I found the word mentioned in a PDF file Oracle of the Tarot, which says:
The special mode of consciousness associated in Hebrew Wisdom with 7 is the Occult or Secret intelligence. The Hebrew word here translated "Occult or Secret" is [...] Sether, signifying "to shut up, to cover, to hide, to veil, to conceal."
...which seems like the very kind of word that a real fortune teller might bring up in a visit.

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
