The best writing of the new year so far! Could you please write more about dreams and their benefits? I would love to read more about them. Thank you!!

Really cool. I'm sure we over-corrected against the dubious dream analysis of the early 20th century.

I think Dave Pizarro said on an episode of VBW that he had experience lucid dreaming, and he gave up on it because he felt like it made his dreams lose something, and I think he even said it resulted in a sort of depression the next day. I have an extremely small amount of experience with lucid dreaming, but my experience agrees with this. I found it surprisingly uninteresting and unsatisfying. Have you experienced anything like this?

In fact I think it may have been the VBW episode on Erik Hoel's Overfitted Brain Hypothesis. Do you have any thoughts on that?

Initial pre-comment from me! I came here from a link on Reddit. Your SubStack name 𝘭𝘰𝘰𝘬𝘴 like 'superbowl' - so something I'd never go to in a million years, in any epoch. However - the title & subject itself was of course compelling - so here I am, enjoying your content!

This reminds me a bit of certain branding issues of old. Powergen would always go by a web domain name + country name. So - Powergenuk, or Powergenfrance, etc.

That didn't work so well for their Italy division ('italia').
