3 The Quantum Dispersal

engage in the solution of problems. Dreams are messages from the self at work in freedom and with access to all its virtual past, to the self awake who can engage in actions. For our purpose, therefore, dreams tell us that in our lives we never leave impacts as they are supposed to be, the way the environment intends them, to educate and prepare us. Instead we work on these impacts in the light of the continuity of life and come back with a proposal that wakes us up with the command to take such or such steps since only in the waking state can action on the environment take place. Often a dream needs to be interpreted. The fact that the command is not clear tells that the sleeper is still trying some things out in terms only of the reality within. If the affective component of the dream lingers for some time, the language of the outer reality is used to account for the images still left in our consciousness, and organized in terms of the life of sleep. The self when awake knows that something needs to be done and persists in reaching a meaning compatible with action in the world. When this happens the self asleep has served the self awake. When it does not happen, another night of sleep (or perhaps a few) will be needed to transmute what the self sees in one state into terms valid for the other. Dreams are bridges between the two forms the self has to take when in contact with very different energies in the environment of the outer and inner worlds. If we cannot be aware of automatisms in the waking state, if we can only be in contact with a fraction of our objectified world
