The interpretation of dreams by dream experts may be almost as old as dreaming itself. We know that all humans, and many animals, dream every night, and humans have always been fascinated to learn what causes dreams and what they mean. Freud rightly termed dreams "The Royal Road to the Unconscious". In the next few months I am going to build up a section on dreams which will allow you a far greater understanding of them. I begin toay with a basic introduction.

The interpretation of dreams dates back at least as far as 3000-4000 B.C. We know that because the interpretations of dreams were recorded in permanent form on clay tablets. It is thought that many primitive peoples were unable to initially distinguish between the real world and the dream world. In many cases, these people looked upon the dream world as an extension of the physical world around them, and in many cases they saw the dream world as more powerful than the waking one. This of course could be said to have a lot of credibility because what we do not acknowledge in ourselves does tend to come up from the unconscious and affect our lives when we least expect it. Many early societies developed sophisticated ways of working with dreams. This is where the ideas of "creative dreaming" and "lucid dreaming"comes from

Dream interpretation was so important to the ancient Greek and Roman's that dream interpreters often accompanied generals and other military leaders into battles. Dreams were taken extremely seriously, and the Greeks and Romans in particular often viewed dreams as messages sent by their gods. Dreams also had a religious content in ancient Egypt, and priests were alsoskilled dream interpreters. They were among the items recorded by the ancient Egyptians in the form of hieroglyphics. Those whose dreams were especially vivid or significant were thought to be blessed and were given…...

Dream and Interpretation of Daniel

...Description of the four kingdoms: a) The head of the statue was made of pure gold which represents the Babylonian Empire; it is unstable and heavy beginning with the head. (606-539 B.C) b) This statue in Daniel’s interpretation is followed by a chest with arms of silver which represent the Medo-Persian noted as a “dual empire”. (539-331 B.C.) c) The third kingdom is preceded by the belly and its thighs of bronze which represent the Grecian Empire. (331-323 B.C.) d) Another kingdom which follows is the Empire of Rome which signifies the legs of iron in Daniels’ dream as he interprets the dream of Nebuchadnezzar. It also has it feet and toes partly baked clay and partly of iron, which represents a divided kingdom It is important to note that beginning with the head of gold to the legs made of iron and feet and toes partly baked of clay and iron are deteriorating in fineness, but do increase in strength. There is division in these kingdoms which represent the two legs (eastern and western empires) and these are once again divided into kingdoms which represent the ten kingdoms that the Stone strikes (Second Coming of Christ). In chapter 7 of Daniel has another dream which is given to him of four world empires. a) The lion had wings of an eagle, yet its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a man, and the heart of a man was given to it. This represents the Empire of Babylon. b) The second Empire was the...

Criticial Interpretation of Genesis 1

...Gen 1:1-2:4a World Behind the text Historical and Cultural Context Genesis illustrates the way Biblical writers J (Yahwist), E (Elohist) and P (Priestly) drew upon the cultural and religious legacy of the Ancient Near East (ANE) along with its stories and imagery and transformed it to conform to a new vision of a non-mythological God and a monotheistic, superior religion. “The Pentateuch developed against the background of the Ancient Near Eastern culture first cultivated in and spread by Sumerian, Assyrian, and Babylonian empires”. This exemplifies how Israelite religion, was “shaped by responses to and reactions against this culture due both to contacts with neighboring Canaanites and to conflicts with Assyrian and Babylonian empires”. Genesis 1:1-2:4a can therefore be said to reflect the “Babylonian account of creation, which we call Enuma Elish…known from at least 1700 BCE,” “predating the earliest text of Genesis by at least a millennium.” In both Genesis and the ancient Babylonian myth, water is divided into upper and lower waters. The Enuma Elish is recorded on seven tablets and the Genesis account is completed in seven days. The Babylonians created humans to serve as slaves yet in Genesis God creates humans in the likeness of the divine. The Priestly source penned the creation story with the intent of being a “monumental historiographic composition…with the purpose of portraying both the beginnings of mankind and Israel in the spirit of a monotheistic......

Interpretation Project 1

...Bible 110-B12 LUO Interpretation Project 1 In reading the assigned passage, Matthew 24:43-25:13, what I come away with is Jesus’ heart for preparing those whom he called. A few versus before this passage, in Matthew 24:36, we read that even Jesus does not know the day or hour of his return so he is instilling principles in his disciples about being ready for his return. These principles where recorded in the New Testament as well as passed down by early church leaders. Jesus was teaching his church about being prepaid for his return. I can only imagine what it would be like to wake up and realize that my house had been broken into in the middle of the night and I had lost something of value to me. I would think to myself that if only I would have a dog or an alarm system to alert me that I could have saved my possessions. The point that Jesus is making is that we will not get that warning and the possession at risk here is our eternal soul. This is such a strong and vivid illustration that Paul echoes it in 2 Thessalonians 5:2 as does Peter in 2 Peter 3:10. The next illustration has to do with a house as well. This time we are not the master but the servant. Jesus had taught the disciples that the greatest amongst them would be the servant. We are here as servants of Jesus who are to be busy making disciples. A true heart of repentance will seek to make disciples. How serious are we taking our assignment from the master? This passage tells us what will happen to......

Interpretation of Dreams

...Dreams have long exercised a fascination over the human imagination. We spend approximately one-third of our lives in a state of sleep, much of the night filled with dreams. Peculiarly vivid or disturbing dreams leave behind impressions that are hard to dismiss. In Freud Sigmund’s view, the purpose of dreams is to allow us to satisfy in fantasies; the instinctual urges that society judges unacceptable. The part of the mind that Freud called censor transforms the dream content so as to disguise its true meaning. Freud called the censorship process the dreamwork. There is five processes brought into play during dream-work: displacement, condensation, symbolization, projection, and secondary revision. Did you ever awaken from a particularly vivid dream to find yourself having trouble, shaking the eerie, feeling it left behind? Was the dream simply the residue of your hectic day or something far more significant? Dream has always been a fascinating topic. I chose to know more about it because we are living in a world where our mind is a crucial part of our body. At night, we do not really comprehend how our mind works. When we are sleeping, we see images in our dreams sometimes stories or even the future. How does it all work? Where are those images coming from? Sigmund Freud in his book “ Interpretation of Dreams”, states that the dream is composed of two parts; the manifest and the latent content. The manifest content can be thought of as what a person would remember as......

Interpretation of Dreams

...The Interpretation of Dreams Sigmund Freud (1900) PREFACE TO THE THIRD EDITION Wheras there was a space of nine years between the first and second editions of this book, the need of a third edition was apparent when little more than a year had elapsed. I ought to be gratified by this change; but if I was unwilling previously to attribute the neglect of my work to its small value, I cannot take the interest which is now making its appearance as proof of its quality. The advance of scientific knowledge has not left The Interpretation of Dreams untouched. When I wrote this book in 1899 there was as yet no "sexual theory," and the analysis of the more complicated forms of the psychoneuroses was still in its infancy. The interpretation of dreams was intended as an expedient to facilitate the psychological analysis of the neuroses; but since then a profounder understanding of the neuroses has contributed towards the comprehension of the dream. The doctrine of dream-interpretation itself has evolved in a direction which was insufficiently emphasized in the first edition of this book. From my own experience, and the works of Stekel and other writers, [1] I have since learned to appreciate more accurately the significance of symbolism in dreams (or rather, in unconscious thought). In the course of years, a mass of data has accumulated which demands consideration. I have endeavored to deal with these innovations by interpolations in the text and footnotes. If these additions do...

... “Ms. Mason. Ms. Mason. Open the door please.” I knew that little voice, Christine Collins the girl next door I watch. Tears rolling down her face, “Please it’s my mommy…help her.” Christine’s mother was lying on the living room floor. “Mrs. Collins? Can you hear me? It’s Beth.” I glanced at Christine whose head was berried in her hands. How do I tell an eight-year-old girl her mother wasn’t breathing? I pulled her next to me, “Sweetie” before I could talk she spoke, “Is she asleep like my daddy, Ms. Mason?” I have forgot that her father passed away less than two months ago. I just nodded, “Can I come with you?” kissing her head, “Of course you can. I can’t leave you here alone. Go get some things together.” I had no way of calling 9-1-1 so I laid a cover over her. Christine came out of her room with a book bag and a stuffed teddy bear. We went back over to my house. “Ms. mason?” I stopped her, “Christine I am only 18 you don’t have to talk to me like you do my mother honey. You can call me Beth.” She smiled, “Okay. Um Beth where is your mommy?” We got in my small two door car that looks like it could fall apart any second. It was hard to get down our street, cars where just in the middle of the road. I threw a jacket over Christine’s face. I didn’t want to see bloody people on the ground or leaning half way out of their car doors. What in the world has happened? The police stations was the exact same. Dead people were all around. I found my mother half awake at her......

...customer service and quality products are the key factors for successful businesses. In company Q’s case, they are failing at both, especially when they don’t even have the support from their own community. It is probably a good thing that they closed two of their stores in higher-crime-rate areas of the city because being in a higher-crime-rate areas would drive their customers away even more so. Even though Company Q can care less about the social responsibility, maybe we can still recommend few pointers to help them improve the business. First, Company Q needs to understand that their manager doesn’t have the best interest in the company. I believe that the company should either let him go or let him know that they would love to be a part of their community and start respecting their wishes. In order to gain the respect from the community, the company should have the manager apologize sincerely to local food bank for the previous incident and make a big donation. Second, Company Q should definitely keep health-conscience and organic products and maybe even have varieties of it to make that their “thing”. This is another way to please the local customers since they have been requesting these products for years. It will put the company’s name out there after people start recognizing that the company changed their ways for the better and for their customers and possibly develop a good image for the company. Company Q should also have the store manager make fliers and......

Policy Process Part 1

...The Policy Process Part 1 The Policy Process Part I Tobacco use and the effects of second hand smoke have been an ongoing issue for many years. Looking at the attitude of the 1950’s and 1960’s when smoking was thought of as cool, suave, mature, etc., there has been a major turnaround in the way society looks at the use of tobacco. Now the issue is not just smoking and the damage to health that it causes, but now there is the additional awareness of what second hand smoke can do to individuals. It used to be commonplace to smoke in a hospital room and now due to the changes in the laws, smoking is not even allowed on the campus of a hospital. Many if not all large buildings including government buildings ban smoking in and around the buildings. This paper will present information on the first part of the policy process that includes the formulation stage, legislative stage, and the implementation stage. The goal is to provide enough information on these stages so that the reader will be better informed in the process of policy making. Identify the Problem As with anything a problem must first be identified. In this case the problem that is to be discussed is second hand smoke and its effects on the public. In recent years the effects of second hand smoke have started to be brought into the public eye. What is second hand smoke? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (n.d.) second hand smoke is a combination of smoke from two sources, the......
