Amplification: The Dance

The qualitative differences in the two early dreams and the later one are obvious. The earlier dreams, while suggesting creativity, have a narcissistic flavour and centre on 'performance', a useful thing in itself, but quite in contrast to the sense of depth, of paradox, and of transcendence in the third dream. Clearly the first images are personal, and the last is symbolic. All have 'meaning'; but the later dream has 'import' in the sense that Prochaska quotes Langer's use of that word.
The history of dance becomes relevant as we view the differences between the earlier and later dreams. A few slides from ARAS, which I shall describe, illustrate this fact.
