My friend Meeka has a general question for you dreamers out there in Whateverland:
In conversations with friends, it seems some dream in a manner similar to me, in which dreams have their own logic, which is not necessarily correlated with reality, while others have dreams that are very pragmatic and tied to reality. Also, before adolescence, I had “deja vu” dreams, in which I would experience something – entering a room I’ve never seen before, or overhearing a fragment of conversation – and at some point in the following week, that exact dream fragment would happen. I would know what the room would look like, or what someone would say before they said it.
I’m curious now, to know what the experience of dreaming is to other people.
So: What sort of dreamer are you? One whose dreams “make sense”? One whose dreams are (for want of a better word) dreamlike? Somewhere in-between? Both?
Discuss amongst yourselves.
