I wont get into any of the specifics of my dreams, they are way way too messed up (yes a dream specialist and counselor told me this too). But I do have a general dream question. I got to thinking today about something I heard a long long time ago (think it was on a batman cartoon) that you cannot read things in your dream. Is this true? And if it is, why? I got to thinking about my own dreams and realize that my dreaming mind avoids me having to read. There are never any street signs or billboards in my dreams. If I get the mail or am at a resturant I toss the mail aside or don't need to look at the menu because i know what I want. If I am in a familiar setting like a cafe that I generally go to in real life, the menu's on the wall are no longer there in my dream. What is that all about?
