“There’s a principle going back to [psychologist] Alfred Adler that we dream what we live and we live what we dream, and I think he was right on the button,” Stanley Krippner, a psychologist at Saybrook University who was not involved with the new study, told Gizmodo.

This is also what the findings of this study show us.”
