When awake , we normally reflect on the stream of consciousness as it goes on . In addition , we can be aware that we are in one place , perhaps seated at a desk , and at the same time imagine something else . Rechtschaffen claims that during dreaming this is not possible . He says , " I can not remember a dream report which took the form , " Well , I was dreaming of such and such , but as I was dreaming this (a) I was imagining a different scene which was completely unrelated . " " The imagery of the dream totally dominates consciousness . Paradoxically , while dreaming we are without imagination and we are not aware that we are dreaming . Instances of " lucid " dreaming , when the dreamer is aware that he or she is dreaming , are rare , even among those who claim to experience it frequently .

But of course there was still the Devil 's Ridge to come . Would I or would I not welcome the security of a rope ? Would I perhaps welcome the security of a helicopter , or welcome the security of waking up in bed to find that it was all a dream and I had n't actually gone hill-walking at all because I had a date with Gerard Depardieu ? Who could say ? There was no sign of this Devil 's Ridge and by the time we reached the summit of Sgor an Iubhair(a) I was imagining a knife edge of rock , hanging above an abyss full of red scaly demons , holding pitch forks and hissing to one another , ` She has n't got the security of a rope .

At first he is just an unspecified ours , a bear ( 1841 ) . He 's still unspecified -- though owner of a den -- in 1843 , in January 1845 , and in May 1845 ( by now he boasts a triple layer of fur ) . In June 1845 he wants to buy a painting of a bear for his room and entitle it ` Portrait of Gustave Flaubert ' -- ` to indicate my moral disposition and my social temperament ' . So far we(a) ( and he too , perhaps ) have been imagining a dark animal : an American brown bear , a Russian black bear , a reddish bear from Savoy . But in September 1845 Gustave firmly announces himself to be ` a white bear ' . Why ? Is it because he 's a bear who is also a white European ? Is it perhaps an identity taken from the white bearskin rug on his study floor ( which he first mentions in a letter to Louise Colet of August 1846 , telling her that he likes to stretch out on it during the day

Meredith would be particularly impressed . It was a windy morning , and mild . She could see clear across the water to the smashed dome of the Pleasure Gardens at New Brighton .
