When it comes to dreams nothing sounds more like dream-stomping than looking at dreams through a “neuro-biological” lens posited in 1977 by a couple of dream stompers at Harvard that dreams are simply byproducts of brain processes during sleep, simply flotsam and jetsam of brain chemical reactions. Here’s an example of their thinking: “dreaming sleep is physiologically determined and shaped by a brain stem neuronal mechanism that can be modeled physiologically and mathematically”
No I don’t thinks so. Human experience cannot be reduced to mathematical models of chemical reactions in our grey matter. And especially dreams. Or let’s even accept that’s possible, they shouldn’t be. It’s the mystery of things that allows us to value them.
