no specific content as a basis for another Dreams post, but ... just a general update about resolution and intensity.
The sheer REALNESS of the Dreams I've been having for the last week.
Seriously, this shit feels like nothing like a re-sorting and compacting/integraton of the days events into the longer term memories already stored in the brain and more like ANOTHER LIFE.
It's like it has its own REALNESS and it's a solid, scary, sad realness I would have thought irrelevant to 'data storage'.
Very strange, very profound.
DAY LATER UPDATE: hyper-real, hyper-surreal!
Yeah, the content I don't wanna go into, but I'll relate SPECIFICS. I can't quite believe this level of anatomical detail. I have certain scars or blemishes on my body (just like you do) from injury or illness etc. Last night's dream MADE A POINT of bringing these tiny insignificant details to my full attention. Then proceeded to do some utterly brilliant, amazing, wicked and totally vivid things to my body so that I'd KNOW IT WAS (supposed to be) REAL. This had NOTHING to do with simple "dream = data compression" theory.
Of course, it was just a dream, but, man, that was TOO REAL.
NEXT DAY LATER UPDATE: gold stickers with writing on them being placed on my back not very subtly (I confronted the woman who was doing this) in a junk shop or thrift shop where (who I was with) chose a VERY OLD jigsaw with a very strange futuristic blue-plastic waxy covering that such an old item could never have.
