Dreams and the brain

Maybe I should start keeping a diary of my dreams. They can be a great source of inspiration with writers’ block. They either mush up the events of the last few days into a bizarre chimaera or formulate something new.

While I was on holiday I had dreams mostly of the former type. But I must say I prefer the latter as it is a testament to the power of the brain. Even when the body is sleeping the brain just keeps going on and on. In fact, there is some evidence coming to light which may suggest that the thoughts generated by the brain in life may survive physical death.

So salute the brain, put it to work, and sleep well every night.
