Example text

Sixth, the associative processes of the state of sleep seem more fluid than those of wakefulness. Logic no longer orders associations, and connections are made between thought elements unrelated by the waking mind. "They are linked by associations of a kind that is scorned by our normal thinking and relegated to the use of jokes. In particular, we find associations based on homonyms and verbal similarities treated as equal in value to the rest" (Freud, 1900, p. 596). It is as if the mind's operations during the entire sleep period are characterized by the conditions characteristic of the kind of silliness or giddiness into which we occasionally fall in the waking state.

At times, Freud writes as though the dreamer's comments themselves lead us directly to the organizing foci: "the dreamer's associations begin by diverging widely from the manifest elements, so that a great number of subjects and ranges of ideas are touched on, after which, a second series of associations quickly converge from these on to the dream-thoughts that are being looked for" (Freud, 1923b, p.

But these degenerative organizational phenomena are so extraordinarily uncharacteristic of REM sleep that they clearly must be regarded as defective cases.
