Perhaps there is something to that, but I have dreams so vivid that they are
often hard to tell from reality, except for the fantastic happenings. I keep
hearing that you cannot read in a dream, but that is utter bunk- I write
mathematics, draw schematics, read things, and there do not seem to be any
boundaries. I have often woken with a schematic diagram fresh in mind and have
even built a couple of the devices, and they work.
Colors, textures, smells, all are present. When I was a kid, I was also
asked the apocryphal question about dreaming in color, and I too could not
imagine doing otherwise.
But this does not mean that all my dreams make sense- some are too wild and
unrealistic in concept, but there tends to be a greater sense of detachment in
those. I have awakened with the sense of great understanding of some wonderful,
universal secret, only to find that it was complete nonsense.
