Part 5 : An Interview with Rob Bryanton of Imagining the 10th Dimension – Dreams and the Ten Dimensions
I was curious to know that some of your songs reference the world of lucid dreaming. In fact, this is what led me to reading your book. What thoughts do you have on the idea that dreams occur in parallel universes and other timelines and realities that are contained within the 10th dimension? Do you have any experience with lucid dreaming?
I don’t have any personal experience with lucid dreaming. I have always had a lot of dreams of flying/floating though, in the last few years more of them have also incorporated overhead wires that sometimes cause me problems as I ascend/descend without looking where I’m going. I think the unusual juxtapositions that sometimes happen in dreams are very analogous to the types of wormhole travel that could occur as you move from one universe to the next, folding dimensions or moving through the higher dimensions to make seemingly unlikely leaps from one reality to the next. Since I am proposing a universe based upon the interference patterns created by a realm of possible memes and a realm of possible expressions of physical matter, there is lots of room in what I’m imagining to incorporate the dream world as being an actual navigation through those other realities.
