Default In a dream...

In a dream. A Flock of sheep was pounced upon by wolves. Within seconds the adult sheep were disemboweled and swallowed. Chew chew, gulp gulp. Blood and sheep entrails everywhere.

The lambs were traumatized and utterly broken. They whimpered and grovelled before their new wolf parents, and even tried to cuddle with them. See no evil, hear no evil. They had nowhere else to go and they knew it. One particularly frightened lamb tried to nurse an open sore on one of the wolves.

The wolves reciprocated by growling, snarling, nipping and intimidating. They didn't need the love of their conquered subjects, and undeservingly they knew it. Grovelling alone more than satisfied them.

Why can't I have a nice post-apocalyptic dream like everyone else. Anyway, thought it would be cool to post something not genre-related.

Ha, very random, and quite detailed, I never really remember my dreams very well.

I wouldn't know where to start when it comes to analysing dreams, anyone got any comments there?

If anything interesting from my subconscious makes an appearance tonight I'll try and remember it!

When you try to remember your dreams without making any record you forget them nearly entirely.
If you take classical psychoanalysis the main problem is that the dream you remember is not the dream which you actually dreamt. So one's first intuition, that a dream is a fairly straightforward message from the subconscious, is wrong.

In my opinion you can faintly guess what your dreams tell you about yourself but actual analysis, well, I guess this is pretty hard to do on your own.
Sure, Freud did it in his Traumdeutung but I doubt that John Doe could do it and even for Freud the analysis was long and not entirely conclusive ... and above all revealed that his first hunch was wrong, thus emphasizing the need for analysis.

I think it's a subconcious reflection of Sam's inner conflicted concern that the Star Trek sequel will be really bad (it's supporters being the flock of sheep and lambs who advocated it) who will be pounced upon and devoured by the snarling wolves (those who hated it) in the rapturous day of reckoning (which has shifted once again to May 17th 2013) and who do not need the love of the sheep in repentance anymore and those who grovelled apologies were made to undeservingly know they had been wrong from the start by the victorious wolves.

Why yes, I believe that must be it. Who knew?

I think the analysis is much more simple and straightforward. samwiseb thinks that wolves are evil, and like to engage in conquest and rule over the offspring of their slain victims. Also that lambs are suck-ups.

And he watches gory films, or reads books with blood and guts in them.
