  • Dreamed I was at a gas station by a college campus, consoling a friend who’d been told she wasn’t allowed to study Aristotle any longer. I led her over to the used dvds, trying to cheer her up. One of her classmates was there—she had just been to a lecture about poetry. I asked whether there had been any mention of cauliflower as a symbol. She was just starting to say, “Right, so as you know, cauliflower is a soltentanue,” and I was just about to say, “Do you mean solanaceae? I thought it was cruciferous,” but my alarm woke me up before I could question her further.

  • Water cress is cruciferous and closely resembles hemlock. Of course, hemlock was what socked Socrates.(but not Aristotle) Have you gotten to the underdeveloped flower stem of the rutabaga yet? There must be a chiastic (see chiasmus) double cross in this dream...somewhere near the sundog  perhaps!

    Aristotle noted that "two mock suns - parhelion - rose with the sun and followed it all through the day until sunset."

    Artemidorus in his Oneirocritica ('On the Interpretation of Dreams') included mock suns amongst a list of celestial deities. Solanum, a species of solanaceae, is also known as "sunberry."

  • Thanks, fb! Had I slept longer, I might have convinced my friend to study Solon.
