It seems most of us have at one time or another had an experience of awaking from a dream with the feeling that the dream was important — more important than most dreams. I wonder if we have that feeling of importance because the dream really has some importance to us — some significance beyond our mere feelings about it — or if that feeling of importance is as much an illusion as can be the content of the dream itself? In other words, are “important dreams” important because they import something? Or is their feeling of importance as much of an illusion as the unicorn or flying toad that we might dream about? Not that the answer matters much. But I’m curious what you think might be the case.
