Our focuses form our idea of historical context

“It is probably almost impossible for man to see that he forms the idea of historical context through his own associations and focuses.  The heavy, specialized use of so-called rational thought has often caused him to narrow even his neurological recognition of other kinds of experience that might enlarge his view.  In dreams, there is greater leeway in that regard.  Consciousness becomes more familiar with its own inner motion, and even with the kinds of work and actions it performs outside of its usual waking prejudices.”
(Dreams, “Evolution” and Value Fulfillment Vol 2Session 928)
