Yesterday afternoon a friend and I were talking about her dreams. She has been under the weather for a few weeks and she has also been having intense vivid dreams. We have been looking at her dreams and trying to understand them...and yesterday we spent a bit of time wondering if her dreams were suggesting what was going on with her body. We also were able to laugh at ourselves for thinking this way. Like as if her subconscious was trying to tell her what was off kilter with her body. Last night on House the team hooks up a machine to a teenager who is very sick and hallucinating in the hospital because House says "We don't know, but the brain knows" and “Her subconscious is trying to tell her something. We have to eavesdrop.” Then the team proceeds to hook the patient up to a monitor that manifests her hallucinations to evaluate based on cognitive pattern recognition. It was very Altered States. Kewl... I almost fell off the couch.
