If you read Bob Pease's column, "Pease Porridge," in "Electronic Design," you have probably noticed that he often writes of strange dreams that he remembers. The really weird ones wake him up, and he promptly writes down all that he remembers. Usually, his dreams have real-world, technical or scientific significance. One such recent recollection is in the 5/24/07 issue. http://www.elecdesign.com/Articles/Arti ... 15498.html
Other extremely intelligent and accomplished people are prolific dreamers, from what I recall. Robert W. Lucky, Albert Einstein, Gordon E. Moore, to name a few you will recognize.
Here's my problem: I rarely ever have dreams that I recall anything about, and when I do, they are trivial and/or stupid - like driving by a billboard at night and watching the person's eye follow me as I pass by. I don't ever remember waking suddenly during one of the famous "I was falling" dreams. Now, if I did not already lack many of the other qualities common to geniuses, not owning this one might not bother me, but hey, what's so hard about dreaming that even those of us in the middle 50% can't manage a few notables?
How about you, do you dream often? If so, lay your best one on us. See if you can top Mr. Pease's.
