The REM phase is also known as paradoxical sleep PS and sometimes desynchronized sleep because of physiological similarities to waking states, including rapid, low-voltage desynchronized brain waves.

REM sleep is physiologically different from the other phases. Psychoanalytic dream interpretation is a subdivision of dream interpretation as well as a subdivision of psychoanalysis pioneered by Sigmund Freud in the early twentieth century. Psychoanalytic dream interpretation is the process of explaining the meaning of the way the unconscious thoughts and emotions are processed in the mind during sleep. There have been multiple methods used in psychoanalytic dream interpretation, including Freud's method of dream interpretation, the symbolic method, and the decoding method.
The Freudian method is the most prominently used in psychoanalysis and has been for the last century. Psychoanalytic dream interpretation is used mainly for therapeutic purposes in a variety of settings. Although these theories are used, none have been solidly proven and much has been left open to debate among researchers. Some studies have shown that areas of dream interpretation can be invalid and therefore a decline in importance has been seen in psychoanalytic dream interpretation. Freudian the.

Nalo Hopkinson and Uppinder Mehan have, with So Long Been Dreaming edited an anthology that we needed long ago, an anthology that questions and corrects and lectures and screams. Unfortunately, it is also an anthology that theorizes the signifiers of otherness with obvious allegories and smothers epistemic violence with the smooches of Earth Mothers.
I hope it is not the last anthology to reimagine both real and dreamed-up colonizations, because the subject is a valuable one, and because this particular anthology is only occasionally successful. In an afterword, Uppinder Mehan offers his thoughts on what the stories in So Long Been Dreaming are and do: Some of the stories in this anthology might be categorized as science fiction, some as speculative fiction, and some as fantastic, but they all broaden their labels.

- The Penguin Car Handbook.
- The Politics of Rights: Lawyers, Public Policy, and Political Change - 2nd edition.
The best stories in the anthology do, indeed, put some flesh on the bones of this academic jargon monster, but even some of the best stories tend to read as if they were written to be used as exemplars in an undergraduate course on postcolonial theory. The premise of the anthology too often provides cover for authors to indulge in pamphleteering and to let their characters pontificate for pages and pages. The two best stories in the collection, Vandana Singh's "Delhi" and Greg van Eekhout's "Native Aliens," are also the only stories that don't read like they were originally intended to be taught to students.
They are stories that allow complexity of interpretation and that allow readers to construct their own meanings from the narrative. It is a truly postcolonial story according to all of the criteria laid out by Mehan and Hopkinson, but also a subtle tale of possession, humanity, and history that is compelling to read and written with a great sensitivity to language and detail.
Singh combines a few different SF concepts in a rich and vital story, one that succeeds at provoking thought by creating multifaceted characters and situations. The narrative alternates between scenes from the twentieth-century life of a Dutch-Indonesian family and scenes from the twenty-fourth century life of a man being returned to Earth because that's where his people originally came from, even though he knows nothing of them and his body has adapted to the local environment.
The twentieth-century scenes are sparingly and effectively constructed, while the twenty-third century scenes are tantalizing, causing me, for one, to hope van Eekhout expands "Native Aliens" into a longer form. Other stories in the book deserve some attention, though they are unsatisfying in one way or another.
Nonetheless, Lai's technique is a smart one, and I could imagine a gratifying anthology of such stories, wherein writers retell, for instance, Gulliver's Travels and Farnham's Freehold and The Day the Earth Stood Still. Tobias Buckell takes a stab at retelling quite a few stories in "Necahual," where everything from the Aztecs to Heinlein is thrown in a blender and turned into a space opera smoothie that would have benefited from having some of its expositional chunks strained out.
