Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

A description of the experience

Lyall Watson

Analysis of dream content shows that they do not necessarily form a continuing story that runs in episodes throughout the night, but they do tend to start off with a subject related to the experiences of the previous day before shifting to earlier periods of life. This has given rise to the theory that dreams help a person assimilate the events of the day by rerunning some of them and comparing them with previous experience before filing the lot away in memory
