[dreams|cancer] Doing good in the world, at least in my sleep

Last night I dreamt that I still had terminal cancer, and was being treated at NIH. In my dream, I’d dedicated the last of my energies to speaking and activism on the cause of spaying and neutering household pets.

Um. Wait, what?

Usually I don’t have a lot of trouble grokking the postcards from my subconscious that arrive in the form of dreams. Experiencing a lot of bafflement over this one.

I mean, I’ve always been a responsible pet owner, when I’ve had pets. I’m a big believer in spaying and neutering and animal health. However, that’s never been a top ten issue for me. If I were going to embark on a path of activism in real life at this stage of things, it would be all about disability processes and healthcare access.

So, yeah?

  1. Dan Gollub says:

    My theory of dreams is that they’re consecutive depictions of what the inner self loves, desires, finds undesirable, and hates, in that unvarying order. So where you dream something within the dream reveals its emotional significance. If you dreamed somewhere in the first half of the dream about using your energies to advocate spaying and neutering, it’s a wish that substitutes that reality for the reality of your energies being used toward your illness. But if you dreamed it in the last half of the dream it’s probably an indication you wouldn’t want to use up your remaining energies on something irrelevant to your true goals
