I had the strangest dream the other day. I was walking down the street in a foreign country, when this woman stuck her head out a door. She looked really irritated with me. I thought, “Uh oh…”
Then she shouted, “Wake UP!!!!”
At exactly that instant, my alarm went off. It was like being weirded awake. There are a few things that I find fascinating about this dream.
First of all, I must have an extremely accurate inner clock. I wish I could access it more. It would save me a lot of hassle in life. I can’t tell you how often I spend looking at the clock, but it’s time that could be better allocated to other things. It would be nice to just know what time it is, instinctually. Apparently some part of my brain has this ability, but “I” definitely do not.
Which leads me to the second fascinating thing: My subconscious was speaking directly to me. That has only happened a few times in my life. And it was irritated, which is rather unsettling.
The subconscious has always interested me. It resides inside my head, so it’s me. But I have extremely limited access to its inner workings, so in a way, it’s not me at all. It’s other. Are we roommates, sharing the same brain? Are we separate entities?
Beats me. All I know for sure is that, for one brief, shining moment, we were face to face, and I was intimidated. And it (she?) wanted me to wake up. So I did.
