My alarm woke me in the middle of a dream a few mornings ago. The mind seeks narrative, seeks to close gaps and complete a story, as I have noted before. In my dim, half-awake state, I desired to know how the dream turned out (once awake, we see that they were as random as every other dream, but at the first moment, we are sure there is much meaning) - yet I could feel the story slipping into the mist.
This time, I had a solution: If I can just remember a few words, I can google it. Search engines are already an automatic response to the unknown to me.
