I have been having a recurring dream lately about going to dinner with Immanuel Kant. The details of the dream are different. We are going to dinner for different reasons and we go to different restaurants.
One element is constant in each of the dreams: I have written extensive notes on my hands about this idea I am really excited about. Both my hands are covered in tiny words that explain the idea in detail. At the beginning of dinner Kant shakes my hand when we are introduced. Over the course of dinner Kant keeps touching my hands. By the end of dinner, all of the writing is gone. I can’t remember anything about the idea I had written there and I am very distressed.
I think this is a dream about writing my dissertation.
