What if dreaming and fantasy are a production, an active artistic "happening", a process of creation and emancipation? Why do dreams have to be understood as as distortion of subconscious content through the symbolisation process of so-called "dream thoughts" (...) Then, can we perhaps -instead of resorting to the vagueness of the concept "principle of reality" (reality has no principle whatsoever!)- challenge the idea that "dreaming" is an expression of an individual mythos (which presumably is also a "desired" story) and even that it is an anxious expression of an unproduced subconsciousness, by suggesting to consider dreams as "necessity", as production and as socio-political, aesthetic, artistic "investment" or attempt? Dreams should be "produced" and incorporated into the mechanisms of social, political world.
