Perhaps it has a physiological base; many dreams do.
Total wild-ass-speculation here! -- but you asked. I was just thinking about the symbolism of it as an analogy/symbolic thing.
For example, many people carry an intolerance to gluten (or caseine, or other things, but those are the most common) and they don't know about it.
The small intestines (up high in/above the bathroom?) process food, and the problem is that some genetic lines (most that aren't asian or sub-saharan
african) commonly have what amounts to a cellular set-up where the "shape" of the protein in gluten [this is in any food with grains like wheat,
rye, etc.] acts like a 'key' with the cells in the intestine.
What happens is that normally your intestines will only "let through" certain kinds of molecules in certain areas. There is an area that absorbs
magnesium, one that absorbs something else, you get the idea. The way the body handles this is that the cells of the digestive tract "recognize" the
cells/molecules of the food coming through and the food "fits like a key" into the cell in the digestive tract. You cold think of it (to simplify)
like there are doors down the hallway that say "magnesium here!" or "ladies only" lol, whatever. The problem is that humans apparently weren't
really meant to eat this stuff, derived from wild grasses in the egyptian area, and the human body hasn't evolved to handle it (grains only entered
the diet on our planet like 10K years ago, far as we know).
So gluten goes through and is 'recognized' and operates like a 'key' in areas where it definitely should not. It "opens up" the intestine which
is the only thing protecting the inner body at large from all the molecules that we eat. Sometimes the gluten protein goes through itself and wreaks
all kinds of havoc. Sometimes it just opens the door (so to speak) and doesn't get through or squeeze through, but other things get loose in the body
as a result. (Literally they are like the ultimate free radical but worse. All kinds of stuff even good for you, isn't supposed to be anywhere but
the digestive system in the area where it belongs. It can attach to cells of organs and more and start breaking them down.)
Most people have no idea they have this issue -- despite it's quite common in fact (vastly more so than the 'official' sources so far say in my
opinion) -- unless they've done a medical panel on it (most affordable and by far best technology for this is someplace like enterolab.com for
example). (I have no association with them fwiw.) Sometimes when people start getting a clue it's because they have some kind of symptom that is
associated with a problem like this (cystic acne, odd rashes, asthma/allergies, IBS or major stomach pain, etc.).
That's probably just one of ten million possibilities of course LOL -- but you might before you go to sleep ask your body (out loud if posssible)
"for a dream to explain the MEANING of the dream about ____, and to wake up and remember it clearly." Can't hurt!
