Re: "Put a lot of Truck..."
I like it. Makes perfect sense to me. I might just have to use it now.
As for dream interpretation, I completely agree. I don't actually buy into Jung (
I was being facetious
), but he's definitely an interesting read. I think a lot of the universal symbols has to do with simple societal norms, but who the fuck is "normal"? And god knows when the last time those "norms" were updated, anyway.
There's also the whole collective consciousness theory, which has some theoretical (
albeit optimistic and weird and moderately implausable
) merit, but as for dreams... you can't get more esoteric than dreams. I do believe that they definitely reflect the goings on in our heads in one way or another.
I do however enjoy trying to figure out what they could or couldn't mean. And at the very least pondering them and thinking to myself "dude, that's fucked up!"
