Dreams and creativity cont'd

       Ah okay, thanks for the clarification. Actually, I find what you have mentioned about dreams and evolution quite interesting. It makes me wonder whether evolution as a process has favored dreaming, or whether dreaming has fueled biological and cultural evolution, it's probably both (loopy). Perhaps we have evolved to create, and, in turn, we must create to continue evolving. Maybe Sontag and Feyerabend are suggesting that we're not currently maximizing our creative abilities, and thus we decrease our chances of ever becoming more creative (evolving to be such)?
