Contacting Your Creative Subconscious Via MicroDreams

This current experiment points towards  micro dreams as a technique to broaden creative problem solving.

In other words this is one way to "channel" insightful thoughts from the larger subconscious imagination [1] [2]

Hypothesis

"While going to sleep, envisioning a creative scenario can evoke suggestions and visionary examples of applying skills and perspectives in new ways"  [3] [4] [5]
