Orphic Dreams

Orphic Dreams April 18, 2015

I recently had a dream in which I was at an academic conference of some sort. After listening to a paper, in which Orphism had been mentioned, I asked a question, asking the presenter to say more on that subject because it is an area that I’ve long been curious about but with which I am not particularly familiar.

And then I woke up – presumably because my brain did not have the requisite information to fill in what the speaker would say about Orphism.

And so here’s another reason to become broadly educated – if you don’t, it may interfere with you getting the sleep you need.

If any readers of this blog are well-versed in the Orphic tradition and would like to share their knowledge, please do so!
