In a review of _Dreams and Dreaming_ in today's NYT Book Review, George
Johnson says, of dreams recalled upon waking:
I'm persuaded by scientists who argue that our sleeping neurons, unleashed
from the tethers of the senses, fire more at less randomly, squirting neuro-
transmitters all over the place. When we wake up, our compulsion to impose
order on randomness, moping up the mess, turns the noise into a story.
Might this process be related to the "rationization" we have been discussing
with regard to "split-brain" studies and post-hypnotic suggestion?
