This chapter shows that dreaming is hyper-connective. At the dreaming end of the continuum connections are made more easily than in waking, and connections are made more broadly and loosely. Dreaming avoids tightly structured, over-learned material. Thus, we do not dream of the “three R's”—reading, writing, and arithmetic. The connections are not random, but guided by the dreamer's emotions.

Keywords:   continuum, connections, reading, writing, arithmetic
