“In dreams, in primary imagination, we have these experiences that have a sense of awe, or of great joy, or of great love. When we're not in primary imagination, when we're in the waking life, we don't have those experiences. Our dreams bring us to that place and allow us to experience it, and then give us a template so that we can begin to live with awe and wonder and pain and terror in waking life.” – Rodger Kamenetz
