When we fall asleep our left brain becomes passive and its continuous chatter recedes…and this allows our right brain to become more active and as usual expresses itself creatively in metaphors and symbols …and it interestingly reflects as a mirror without judgment what is happening within the left brain…if understood or interpreted it can offer us real insight into the nature of the problematic ego

Our everyday life experienced by the left brain is largely a socially conditioned fabrication of reality.

I’m not asleep… but that doesn’t mean I’m awake. ~Author Unknown

Those who have compared our life to a dream were right…. We sleeping wake, and waking sleep. ~Michel de Montaigne

  1. Carol,

    The military knows that understanding what the enemy is thinking is highly advantageous…since intuition and mental telepathy are related,we all at times sense what others are thinking.

    Carl Jung is gradually replacing Sigmund Freud in the field of contemporary psychotherapy.


  2. I do believe it applies to Carl Jung, too. How dyslexic of me to hop over to Mark Twain. I’ve been wanting to do more reading about Jung since I found out he is into astrology. Jung is an immense field of study in itself. What I’ve read is barely the tip of the iceberg. So, with certain qualifications, I’d say yes.

    I’m glad you did the piece on Synchronicity.

    Interesting about the military. At first, I thought – how scary. But through the learning of it, they will have to obtain higher consciousness, right? Age of Aquarius is upon us.

  3. Carol,

    Are we discussing “Synchronicity” as described by Carl Jung and consistent with recent findings in Quantum Physics ?

    The Department of Defense is now researching using mental telepathy for military purposes.

    Your comment motivated me to post my blog today on synchronicity.


  4. Interesting how I was reading Mark Twain’s essays and came upon his account of experiences with telepathy at the same time the notification for this topic reached my email!

    In his essay he questions, and gives examples of how people come up with the same ideas at the same time. He sites author’s publications that are published within days of each other, and too close together to be plagiarism.

    In an added post script he goes on to say that dreaming can happen when a person is standing up and awake. His experience with that was when a man was walking down the sidewalk and disappeared in mid air. Twain concluded that it was an apparition. In the end, Twain had to conclude that he had clocked out and had gone off into a dream state, as he found the man he thought was an apparition a moment later.
