‘Dreaming is like a psychological thermostat’ πŸ›Œ

Your brain works like a dishwasher when you sleep, cleaning out the dirty information and tidying up the important stuff.

But the mind also creates a theater inside your head. Dreams emerge from unrestricted consciousness. They remind us that the rational imagination can be soo sober.

Writes Emil Cioran in The Temptation to Exist

‘Anyone can escape into sleep, we are all geniuses when we dream, the butcher’s the poet’s equal there.’

Emil Cioran
