The Nightmare

February 2, 2009

The other day a friend related a math nightmare. She was in a prison-like compound. People guarded the exits, and they wouldn’t let her out until she solved a calculus problem. She couldn’t ever do it, and her teeth started to fall out.

Apparently this had been a recurring nightmare for her through high school. I wonder how many people have had dreams like this about math. Or any dreams where math played a starring role.
