Our dreams are always incomplete. It is a key that opens doors to a new future. a myriad of outside signals could even be perceived as revelations. Signaling infinite possibilities, and that will lead to various non-verbal experiences and fill the void of our lives with the memories and emotions they carry with them. Our dreams help us grasp the time, then a violent intellectual outburst surges from our uncontrolled psyches. It is a Eureka moment, a moment of fresh insights and new connections. A longing for a new connection will take us to a puzzle of unknown interconnectivity. This state of enlightenment and the feeling of joy can be reproduced indefinitely and may very well trigger someone else’s Eureka moment.
