Do you guys ever get falling dreams? You know...you feel like you just keep falling (sometimes there's an image associated with it, sometimes not) until you wake yourself up trying to physically stop yourself from falling?

Okay...maybe I'm weird...Wink

That's a very good point. I don't tend to be emotional on the whole. It might be some sort of "control" thing, but I usually try to seperate my emotions from my intellect, simply on the basis that they often interfere with "rational" thought.

Another possibility which I suggested to JemCheeta was the extent to which a person has a "fanatsy" world, where imagination is utilised frequently and intensely, and the person in questions artistic predisposition. i.e. The creation of "art" may be performing the same function that dreams normally would in a person.

*nods* that's another difference between my ex and I actually...though we both play instruments (he's very advanced in piano, I play flute), he was always more concerned with being technically accurate than artistic...I don't even have my grade three theory in the Royal Conservatory (he has his grade 11, I think...), but I'm always making up pieces for flute. I write (he called this "wasting [my] time"), and read fantasy (which he calls "trash"...I know, you Watchers hate him now, don't you? Wink ), and have absolutely no interest in mathematics beyond what the total is on my bank statements and what my GPA is. Basically, we're complete opposites.
Maybe it's a right brain/left brain thing...

LOL I'll say he does. I mean, really...I couldn't even convince him to read the Covenant books! The guy's a complete nutcase! Wink (And yeah...totally better off without him...much better with my dear Tallin *sighs dreamily*)

Oh...whoops, yeah...totally misinterpreted it...or rather, totally missed a few words in the last sentence *grin* But you're right...we're falling prey to the insufficient stats fallacy...
Okay, people, more input!! Razz
