Abstract

The present study analyzed the frequency of “dreaming about dreaming” in a long dream series (N = 10,148 dreams) reported by a single participant. Overall, about 1.5% of the dreams of the series included references such as recording/telling a dream, recalling a dream, listening to a dream, a person dreams about the dreamer, dreams within the dream, dream interpretation within the dream, and talking about dreams in general. As the dreamer was engaged in these activities, the findings are in line with the continuity hypothesis. It would be very interesting to follow up this study by expanding it to larger samples, especially to other diligent dream journalists.
