Because I've been paying close attention to dreams since I was a boy, every now and then I think it's time for me to write my own book about dreams. But each time that happens I immediately think of psychologist Robert Van de Castle's monumental book, Our Dreaming Mind and I change my mind. For … Continue reading Dreams | Psychologist Robert Van de Castle and Our Dreaming Mind
Few people talk about this - the strange interaction you sometimes see between dreams and the real world. To show you what I mean, I'll give you a simple example of my own.
