Con scansioni cerebrali e gigantesche banche dati – ci spiega – le neuroscienze hanno elaborato strumenti e criteri completamente nuovi in step with esplorare e capire il nostro inconscio.
Forse anche in futuro i sogni manterranno immutata l. a. loro enigmaticità, ma grazie a questo libro avvincente scopriremo in modo intelligibile ciò che i sogni ci dicono veramente, in che modo ci aprono nuovi orizzonti e come noi possiamo usarli in line with addestrare l. a. nostra mente.

Dimentichiamo dunque tutto quello che pensavamo di sapere sui sogni e iniziamo un viaggio di scoperta unico verso le fonti della nostra realtà interiore.
