I think that I may have hit upon the real reason that I don’t seem to dream and it isn’t closet psychosis. I think that my mind is generally too busy to waste processing power on things that are not real.
Yesterday afternoon was spent pacing out the dimensions of another possible venue with my friend. It was a useful exercise because it got us both on the same page, previously we had different ideas of how to reconfigure the trading space.
So last night I retired with a mind full of things that I need to address on the current option and gates that would need to be passed to firm up the potential standby. I was half way through the positioning of a bar in order to get the best presence when I fell asleep.
This morning, when I awoke, the first thing that came into my mind, after pain, was the dilema of curved vs angled bars. The topic had moved no further in my sleep but neither had it left my mind it was, in short, as if somebody had pressed pause. Now this makes a lot of sense to me, if you jumble everything up with dreams you must lose your place in the original thought and that would be very inefficient.
Imagine, if you will, leaving the office on Friday and the last thing you do is to move all of your work around and scatter random documents. You just wouldn’t would you? What would be the sense in it, it would just take you longer to catch up with where you were. So when you wake and start recounting your dreams and sorting fact from fiction I am already visualising, in this case, seating plans and angles.
News from the health front this week, for those that follow. My blood pressure remains comfortably low despite some 4 months of not taking medication, I think that we can safely chalk that up as a victory for Dr Gav. I seem to still be suffering quite a bit of pain from the ‘robo wrists’ despite them not receiving as much abuse. Lefty in particular has taken to a viscously sharp stabbing pain to attract my attention, which it does most successfully. I have considered this, in my Dr Gav capacity, and concluded that additional exercise is the solution.
