One may or may not believe in the strange theories of continuous existence of personality, and one may reject the more or less unscientific theories regarding the probability of femcarnatwn, but one cannot reject with the same absoluteness the apparent completeness of memory's records. Almost everyone has experienced the sudden conscious realization of facts released from the storehouse of memory involving incidents long forgotten in the conscious recollection; and, coupled with the release of such facts as one knows were stored away within the present span of earthly life, there comes an array of incidents, associated and unassociated, which could not have been stored in the memory through any experience in this life. Psychology offers as an explanation for the possession of such seemingly inexperienced facts, the theory that in our dreams we charge our minds with experiences which are not consciously realized at the time, or possibly are forgotten in our waking state, but which return to consciousness by association of ideas.

Shakespeare wrote: And as imagination bodies forth The Form of things unknown the poet's pen Turns them to shapes, and gives to airy nothing A local habitation and a name. But such theories leave the cause and nature of dreams and imagination unexplained.
