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.
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.
