But the second result indicates that the extensive associative material produced is not discrete, but sufficiently interconnected to raise the possibility of its reduction in terms of a few common themes and recurring interests, which fit the dream as well.

Edelson, 1972). Both dreams and speech have long been studied in disciplines separate from the mainstream of general human psychology. Both phenomena have been major explanatory problems for the ruling Simplicities of academic psychology.
