Invisibility

Invisibility--a universal fantasy that dreams sometimes fulfill. But dreams cut corners, too--this list includes unnoticeability, as in The Unicorn Mask of Ignorability, or deniability, as in The Flying Horses of Mien Mo. Oh--sorry--forgettability would be here too, but I forgot.

RELATED TOPICS: blindness - vision and visualization - focus and attention - magic and magicians - nocturnes - shyness and embarrassment - loneliness - outcasts - voluntary loners - See also the full INDEX OF SUBJECTS.

The World Dream Bank has 3300+ dreams plus 1000 more pages on dreamwork, shamanism, surrealism, fantasy, worldbuilding, creativity and genius. Site © Chris Wayan 2001-2013.
