think-read dreams




an explanation of a think-read dream


name of dream: think-read dream 2


first scene


in the centre of a large busy town looking for a sign that points to the railway station


second scene


having a confab with a railway employee about buying a ticket


third scene


a woman in the same situation as me (we both missed the last scheduled commuter service and we would have to use the employee’s transport-home train)


fourth scene


slept during the journey and woke to find a message on the seat next to me


could only read the message by “think-reading it” one word at a time


the first word was your, when i had read that word in order to read the next word it meant using a word that made grammatical and contextual sense before it could be read (in this instance it was luggage) the next word could be is/was/has etc.


if the sentence wasn’t making sense it meant going back to that part of the message where more than one word could be used to form a grammatically correct sentence and trying different words until the right one had been chosen and the next word revealed itself in both grammatical and contextual sense


while reading/forming the message i can remember thinking “why is it in the luggage office” and “well how did it get broken”?


i realised i could go back to the note/message and ask the question “how did it get broken”? and so i did


the message began forming itself and eventually it all made sense


the note read…“your luggage is in the luggage office because the hand-strap of the large black bag broke as it was being handled and the contents spilled out. you can collect it from there up until 1 a.m.”


think-reading was the longest scene of the dream and it took bleedin’ ages


the think-reading became a real chore and it may have been the case that the task of think-reading was becoming so much of an effort i concluded the message so i wouldn’t have to keep on think-reading


when the message was fully formed and i felt relaxed i would eventually get the luggage back i woke from the dream




centre of a large busy city… train station/journey with a woman in the dream… one-word-at-time message (second time recently that a message has occured this way in a dream) missed the last train from birmingham to coventry
