Without any transition she sees her uncle and suitor’s head forming the protruding part of the clapper, and she awakes from a nightmare. We did not see her falling asleep. Did the visit upset her, or was the visit the initial part of the dream? By surprising their public, a few film-makers have attempted to display the most problematic aspects of our dreams. At night, individuals, surroundings, circumstances have no stability and time ceases to be a continuous flow: various epochs merge, we chat with long deceased people, or live again moments of our childhood.

While asleep, receive useful information or have their work completed by mysterious, dream-like spirits. But such compilations, being the learned version of popular tales, distinguish radically a human, a possible world from a magical or mythical one.

If we want to meet chimeras likely to materialize during sleep we must travel to another cultural world.

Some emphasize the disparity between the sleepers, who are ‘real’ beings, and the flickering, half-blurred character of their impressions.
