la science des rêves

wow. top film. the science of sleep, another astonishing film by michel gondry (also eternal sunshine of the spotless mind)

it's one of those movies where you smile almost incessantly throughout! which is great!

one of the toughest nuts to crack, scientifically, would surely have to be the science of dreams. maybe that and homeopathy. or chiropracty! do you ever do that? work out the source of the elements of your dream? why was that person in there - i haven't so much as thought about them in years!

one question i sometimes have is how much our dreams are guidance? to what degree should we take them as divine providence, communication from God - or are they more self-absorbed than all that, ie they're us communicating with ourselves what we want to hear, just making transparent what in waking was opaque.

or simply gobbledygook?

it's interesting seeing the visions of others of our subconscious, movies like the cell (i think with J-Lo?), as well as being john malkovich, which interestingly enough was written by charlie kaufman, who co-wrote eternal sunshine with michel gondry. quite freudian, really!

mm... interesting topic... I do not think we can "expect" our dreams to be guidance... i think that perhaps they are a mixture... gobbledegook and sub-conscious??

I think that Hebrews might speak well to this??
(ch1 v1,2) Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.

eternal sunshine of the spotless mind was a crazy movie :)
