The Perfection of Charismatic Exuberance

Luke Schoettinger

I enter a room that seems kind of dim with a few dream characters in it. I identify one (substitution effect) as a grade school classmate who easily made friends and got along with everyone. He looks kind of depressed and unenergetic in this dream. I don’t know how, but at this point I had become at least semi lucid in the dream. (My induction technique often does not get me “aha” moments).

I approach him and ask, “What do you represent?” He perks up a little bit and responds, “The perfection of charismatic exuberance.”

I didn’t capture how the dream ended or what I did next in my dream journal.
