>Dream interpretation is the process of assigning meaning to dreams. In ancient societies, dreaming was considered a supernatural communication or a means of divine intervention. The meaning of dreams could be unraveled by those with certain powers.
Now, in modern times, various schools of psychology have offered theories about the meaning of dreams. Freud argued that the foundation of all dream content is wish-fulfillment.
“For the dreaming wildebeest, it may be a rich pasture over the hill; for the human dreamer it may be splitting the atom.” …..or thigh deep powder.
Last night I dreamed, get this, of dreaming about snowboarding. Whaaaaa……? I have dreams of snowboarding, now I am dreaming about dreaming about snowboarding? Man, am I seriously messed up or what?
Jung stressed that the dream was not merely a devious puzzle invented by the unconscious to be deciphered, so that the ‘true’ causal factors behind it may be elicited. He believed that dreams may contain ineluctable truths, philosophical pronouncements, illusions, wild fantasies, memories, plans, and irrational experiences.
I am going with the wild fantasies. 24 inches of powder all season long. I am sure that Freud would agree.
