The Repetition Dimension in Dreams and Waking Cognition

  • G. William Domhoff
Part of the Emotions, Personality, and Psychotherapy book series (EPPS)


In this chapter, we put some of our findings into a larger context to suggest that there is an overlooked dimension, a repetition dimension, underlying much of our dreaming. We also connect the “unfinished business” driving the repetition dimension to similar findings on the content of our thoughts when our waking minds are drifting, wandering, or daydreaming.
