The Quest

  • W. R. KlemmEmail author


I sit here watching my dog, Zoe, dream. I know she is dreaming because she exhibits signs that neuroscientists have determined are associated with dreaming in humans. Actually, the bodily signs of dreaming were first discovered in cats, not humans. The signs include twitching of limbs, darting of eyes beneath the eyelids and changes in facial expression. If there were any doubt about Zoe’s dreaming, as soon as she awakens, she sometimes runs to the window as if to see her dream continue in the real world.
