psychology 101

as taught by yours truly.

In my last post, I asked what was the difference between

1. in my dreams I saw him

2. I saw him in my dreams

and I will start by admitting the answers I got were really creative.

This two statements mark the difference between the civilized and the savage mind. In the first case, the speaker recognizes that it is just a dream. That the happenings is in his brain.

And in the second scenario, the dream becomes a separate existence, just as real as his waking realities. He believes in doubles that move out of the body during sleep. To such a person, should a person be found dead in the morning they would say his soul left and didn’t return.

End of class.

I apologise for not responding sooner to most of you. I had traveled.
