I have a dim feeling that some of my teachers are nearby, but my attention is on two adults, neither of which I recognise. The man I see in lurid detail – from the slick shine of his hair to the golden lenses on his sunglasses. He holds up some kind of device that emits a piercing shriek. I drop to my knees with my hands against my ears. My schoolmates are all doing the same. The man is laughing maniacally.I had that dream nearly 40 years ago, but I can remember the details as if it were yesterday. Ask me to relate anything from a dream I had earlier this week, however, and I draw a blank. If I have been dreaming – and biology would suggest I most probably have – nothing has lingered long enough to remain in my waking mind.

我隐约感觉一些教过我的老师就在附近,但我的注意力集中在两个我不认识的成年人身上。那个男的我看得清清楚楚——从他头发的光泽到太阳镜上的金色镜片。他举起的某种设备发出刺耳的声音,我跪倒在地,双手捂着耳朵。同学们都做着相同的动作,那人却在狂笑。这个梦是我在大概40年前做的,但我记得所有细节,就像发生在昨天一样。然而,如果让我描述几天前的梦,我的脑海却是一片空白。如果我一直在做梦——并且生理特性表明我极有可能的确一直在做梦——梦中的一切存留的时间都不足以让我在醒后仍记得。
