Civilization and Its Discontents, by Sigmeund Freud - ... He describes an “oceanic feeling of wholeness, limitlessness, and eternity.” Freud himself is unable to experience such a feeling, but notes that there do indeed exist different pathological and healthy states (e.g. love) where the boundary between ego and object is lost, blurred, or distorted. Freud theorizes that this oceanic feeling is a regression into an earlier state of consciousness before the ego had differentiated itself from the world of objects. Freud also theorizes that the religious oceanic feeling arises from “the infant's helplessness and the longing for the father” and “imagine[s] that the oceanic feeling became connected with religion later on.” In other words, the oceanic feeling is not a genuine religious experience, though people experience it that way....   [tags: Civilization-Individual Relationship] 851 words

When a person wakes up, the dream may be vividly remembered; however, as time passes the person’s memory of the dream will deplete.
