Technicolor at two-thirty

I believe the answer to this question is Yes:

I’ve seen it posited that intelligent people have more memorable dreams, or they remember them more. I wonder if people with good memories — I know I have a freakishly good memory — have those kind of “sort-and-put-in-a-storage-unit” type dreams about stuff like I do, where there’s all kinds of crazy images and stuff thrown in, and a lot of them are traceable to what was experienced in previous days?

My own memory falls a couple of bits short of “freakishly good” — one of the reasons I put up so much stuff here is to document things I may someday forget — but my dreams tend to have preposterous levels of detail, though the particulars generally fade fairly quickly once I’m out of bed.

Then again, this one will likely stay with me forever.

    And now we see why psychiatrists love to dissect dreams. Theirs are probably weirder than anybody’s, and they hope that learning to interpret other people’s will help them figure out their own.
