I posted a thread similar to this months (maybe a year or two) ago, and got few meaningful replies. Perhaps I will have better luck this time. I once had a dream in which I was approaching a movie theater. The visual imagery of the marque seemed realistic, but when my dream ego decided to focus on the marque and learn what movie was playing, the lettering dissolved into meaningless lines. Since that dream, I realized that I have often dreamed about reading a book or a newspaper, but my dream ego never seems to actually see any meaningful printed data. The dream ego seems to know the nature of the book or newspaper article. Pondering about this seems to have triggered some dreams in which my dream ego tried to actually read a book or newspaper. It never happens: The dream ego never sees any meaningful printed data, only an illusion of printed data. Has anyone here ever had his/her dream ego actually read printed data?
