Die neuen coolen Medien der Träume

  • Daniel Oldis


Im Jahr 1964 konnten Träumende in Schlaflaboren in San Francisco und New York etwas in der Geschichte der Traumforschung völlig Neues tun: Träumende in der REM-Schlafphase (sie hatten Mikro-Schalter an ihren Daumen) konnten ihre subjektive Erfahrung des Träumens wahrnehmen, diesen Zustand des Bewusstseins vom Wachzustand unterscheiden und der Außenwelt mitteilen, dass sie wirklich wussten, dass sie träumten (Luce 1965, 61).
