Dream Experiment CXXXIV

December 16, 2015

?:?? am: With the friend of old, leavetaking from the progenitors into the north woods with the aim of finding the Maine border, an invisible line in the moss, but the awareness of a greater unity arising, and leaving the friend behind to continue the trek to Canada’s own invisible lines only to lose the way, land receding.

8:02 am: If, for Gaston Bachelard, the true dream synthesis is one of depth where mental being joins a greater cosmic reality (L’eau et les rêves, p. 106), then this dream exhibited a similar development in its gradual withdrawal from the intimate to the higher. The receding view of the woods at the dream’s close proves an inverted image of Bachelard’s thesis in that the depths take us not lower but higher.
