The Times: Dreams & Nightmares Image 6

So here we have the next image in the series. Published today in the T2 section. I thought this article discussed an interesting concept, an extract lifted directly from the text by Tim Butcher...

The best explanation of dreams I have ever heard was what a wise religious studies teacher told me as a schoolboy.
``The brain is like a filing cabinet,’’ he said during a discussion on apparitions.
``Sometimes the drawers get so clogged with ideas and images that they begin to stick. A dream is your brain’s way of clearing out some room. At night it takes a memory from the bottom drawer, a few thoughts from the middle drawer and a whole series from the top and out they come, all higgledy-piggeldy.’’
