I had a close friend named Don Kirtley. He was a university prof, and he was blind since about six years old, and wrote a book titled "The Psychology of Blindnes," which is still the only academic book I'm aware of that's devoted solely to the psychology of blindness. He was of course familiar with lots of psychology, including dream interpretation. He used to urge me to keep a notebook on a stand next to the bed, and to write down my dreams as soon as I woke. It was his idea that the "interpreting" dreams was of secondary importance. The big deal he emphasized, was to write them down as soon as you woke. Just chronicling them, mulling them over when fresh, allowed you to take advantage of the most dreams had to offer We didn't delve into it much more than that, the "whys" and "whats" of that discussion also being less important than simply recording the dream.. Maybe just repeating it, remembering the dream better, made it, like a grocery list, more available to our consciousness. On an unrelated but still psychology note, he told me a couple of times that the treatment for "warts" was the only direct approach of "mind over matter" that had been hypothesized, replicated, and validated in psychological experiment. I don't want to invite argument here as to all the verified scientific proofs indicating the role of emotions, and mental states in physical treatments of anything and everything, I'm not denying any of them. But warts, he said, were a very special case of direct proof that A caused B, that warts could be, if the method practiced and repeated a bit, "wished" away. I didn't have any warts at the time, as any I'd ever had, had been already "burned" away, which also works but does burn and I would've preferred to try wishing if I'd been aware of it.
