I have this theory about dreams that they are the subconscious putting things together that we may have missed during the day or whatnot. For example,
I have had the dream where I have seen a friend who I have never seen for years, and the next day, ran into him.
Where do these facts come from that end up in our dreams? One place for them to come from is our own surroundings, things that we may have missed
throughout the day are probably picked up by our subconscious and then pieced together as we sleep.
Here is an example of how our subconscious works. I went to a Born of the Gods (Magic: The Gathering) pre-release the other day with around 100 people
in the room. One of my friends started talking about offensive artwork on cards, and mentioned a card called
and how there are Orangutans having sex in the background.
There is also an Unhinged card, Uktabi Kong
, that features baby Orangutans in the
Later that night, when I was cleaning the room, I found an Uktabi Orangutan card! Some might see that as a coincidence, others as mere mysticism.
However, in reality, someone could have spoken the name, thus getting my friend on the subject of "offensive" card artwork without him realizing it to
I believe this is a similar manner to which dreams can manifest. In addition, one theory of our minds is that our minds in the present are connected
to both our minds in the past and our minds in the future. Therefore, if something happens in the near future, it might show up in our dreams.
I pay attention to dreams because, for one, they have a symbolic language that is actually very straight-forward compared to cultural norms. For
another, I think that most dreams take real facets that we have overlooked from our daily lives and basically state them outright.
I got a new cat around a month ago. The interesting thing is, a few days before I went to pick him out, I had a dream of him. I had thought that I was
dreaming about a cat from long ago - Fluffy, alas dead these days - although in reality, I had been dreaming about Gustov. I must be a cat psychic.
Maybe Gustav was reaching out to me in my dream because he really
wanted to get picked.
