              WE CAN BREAK THROUGH THE VEIL. AS               
             ALWAYS, IT BEGINS WITH A JOURNAL. WE             
           MUST WRITE DOWN OUR NIGHTLY PROJECTIONS.

             ENTAILS BREAKING SLEEP - TURNING ON              
            LIGHTS IN THE DARK, TAKING THE TIME TO            
                    REMEMBER AND TO WRITE.                    
                                                              
            IN ORDER TO REMEMBER, LIE STILL. DON'T            
             MOVE. DISREGARD ALL THOUGHTS OF THE              
             DREAM BEING MUNDANE OR MEANINGLESS.              
                                                              
             KEEP CHIPPING AWAY THE DARKNESS: WHAT            
             HAPPENED? HOW? HOW DID I GET THERE?              
             WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE? AND BEFORE? AND            
                            BEFORE?                           
                                                              
            SOMETIMES ALL WE GET IS A FEELING, OR             
             SOME LINGERING SPACIAL AWARNESS OF AN            
              ALIEN PLACE, OR THE NOTION THAT IT              
                       RAINED JUST NOW.                       
                                                              
             WRITE IT DOWN. WHATEVER TINY THING.

            OF COURSE I TRIED TAPE RECORDERS. THEY            
           ARE MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE AS I NEED NOT            
            OPEN ANY EYES, OR MOVE VERY MUCH. BUT             
            THEY MAKE STUDYING HARD - THE DREAM IS            
               INSIDE THERE, HIDDEN AWAY AGAIN.               
                                                              
           WE JUST CHANGE ONE KIND OF INVISIBILITY            
           FOR ANOTHER. THE PURPOSE OF THE BOOK IS
