Collective Unconscious

July 21, 2010

A reader pointed out that we should be discussing Jung, not Freud, when we talk about shared dreams: here, then, is a very nice woman to explain the meaning of the extra-room dream (who knew?) It comes right at around 3:00, no need to watch the whole thing (unless you also have the taking-an-exam dream, and the back-at-school dream–and who doesn’t?)

(They don’t cover the dream where Peter Pan finally comes to take you to Never-Never Land and you’re worried because you’re not wearing underpants under your nightgown, however. I guess that’s mine alone.)

It occurs to me that we ought to be able to come up with some more radical interpretations of this particular dream. Hers is pretty anodyne, don’t you think?

    Freud says that house dreams are always about sex, the female body in particular. Boo, sexist Freud!! I like Miss Jung because she is so comparatively feminist. . . . and I have to say, the opening up of possibilities is a beyond cheerful interpretation of this kind of dream, which I have had vividly many times. . . here’s to cheerful yet meaningful, non-Freudian dream interpretation!!
