Do your dreams feel like movies?
Action thrillers? Horror? Adventure buddy story? Love stories? Sex scenes and so on...?
This may be the storyteller bias in me that is connecting these dots... but it seems that dreams are where our subconsciousness lets loose and pitches to us the most incredible stories. I mean, limitless budget! Live action! Cameos from celebrities guaranteed! Wild effects! If my subconsciousness was a film studio, it would rule Hollywood. Nah. It would rule Netflix even.
What separates us humans from animals... is our ability and obsession with storytelling.
We often say that money runs the world, or 'God'.... (in all their shapes and forms) but in the core of those two is our ability to BELIEVE. Our ability to imagine and create stories, and agree upon beliefs....is what truly runs the world. After all, if people didn't believe that a dollar bill had value, it would just be what it actually only is: A piece of paper.
Einstein said 'Imagination is more powerful than knowledge.'
My subconsciousness agrees.
And it explores its imagination every. single. night.
To dream on....!
