Dream of:29 July 1982 "Numbers And Patches"
I was in the living room of a house, taking an examination.Leah and another female law student were also here. The test consisted of five questions. I answered the first four questions adequately, but when I read the fifth questions, I couldn't understand it. The question appeared to be made of numbers, and had lines which made me think of electrical circuits, running between the numbers. I looked at it and couldn't figure out what it meant. It made some sense, but I still couldn't fathom the meaning.
In my anxiety, I moaned and thrashed about. I snared Leah's attention. I didn't want to talk to Leah in front of the other woman, because I was afraid the woman would think I was cheating, but I groaned anyway, "I can't figure out this last problem."
Leah replied, "Oh, that last problem. All you have to do is zip the numbers together."
When I looked back at my paper, it was actually not a paper, but a large blanket made of patches. It reminded me of an old pair of patched pants I used to have. The problem I was working on was on one of the patches instead of on a paper. I moved the blanket so I couldn't find the patch with the problem on it. I looked at the different patches, trying to find the right one.
Finally, I picked up the blanket, spread it on the floor and looked for the right patch. Leah looked at me and said, "I can't believe it."
I likewise couldn't believe I couldn't find the patch. When someone walked into the room to talk with me about something, I said, "Look, I can't talk right now. I'm taking this test."
It was around 1 o'clock and I had to finish the test by 1:30. When the person who had wanted to talk with me left, I again looked desperately for the correct patch. I finally concluded the patch had somehow slipped off the blanket. I didn't know where it was. Time was running out and it looked as if I wasn't going to be able to answer the question. It was going to be one of the worst tests I had ever taken.Dream Epics Home Page
