    Fragment: Looking for non-catatonic fish or dreams

    by , 03-06-2013 at 10:49 AM (436 Views)
    In this dream fragment I remember looking for non-catatonic fish in the petstore, but during the dream also thinking that fish may stand for dreams (!).

    Note: This was not a lucid dream, but just another example of a dream about dreaming, which I have been having a lot of.

    Also note that Fishkeeping is another hobby of mine, and looking for new fish is a regular occurrence right now (about once a month), since I am in the process of slowly stocking my aquarium. When looking for new fish, one looks for lively ones, and thus non-catotonic kind of makes sense for fish, though it is an odd choice of words.

    However if fish stands for dreams, and the choose off odd word matters, here is an online definition of catatonic from word.com website:

    "1 : of, relating to, being, resembling, or affected by schizophrenia characterized especially by a marked psychomotor disturbance that may involve stupor or mutism, negativism, rigidity, purposeless excitement, and inappropriate or bizarre posturing

    2 : characterized by a marked lack of movement, activity, or expression"

    It makes sense that I would look for dreams that are non-catatonic!

      Fish make a great metaphor for dreams - especially considering water often represents the unconscious. Also interesting - note the first syllable of catatonic...

      I wonder if non-catatonic dreams are lucid dreams?
