From Nikola Tesla: “Once you have opened up an examined a dream by considering each part of it directly and have hopefully also written down what you have discovered from these researches, you may find that this is quite enough: you understand the dream well enough for your own purposes and besides you have to get that next work project out by 3PM. And you certainly do not have to do this with every dream: there are always particularly significant dreams that have high emotional content, are easy to remember or have other ways of distinguishing themselves. These would be easy to parse; these would be easy to work through.
“However, sometimes it is actually the fragments, the tiny little bits of dream that seem to vaporize the fastest that are actually closest to the multi-dimensional aspects of your mind; these, and the dreams that seem the most peculiar. When you can make time to work with dreams such as these, even though you may not get far in the process, the very fact that you reach for them quite literally changes your brain, engaging aspects of the pineal gland and temporal lobes, the occipital lobe and the corpus calossum, enabling better communication between the two halves of the brain. Indeed, it would be fair to speculate that stroke victims, studying their dreams, might help their brains recover sooner.
“Nevertheless, because of the very fact of their multi-dimensionality, you can work on only a few dreams, once in a while and derive full benefit from the examination: as your dreams are crafted from your own multi-dimensional aspects, much as an atom of gold is still gold, an atom of your multi-dimensional self has all the attributes of the whole. In this way your dreams do indeed reveal you inner self to your outer self, and unfold your enfolded aspects beautifully.”
