People who Glow have broad and extensive networks and are skilled at jumping out of the boundaries that constrain them. They allow for serendipity in their life and are prepared to meet new people and take the untrodden path to broaden their experiences.
When you create extensive and meandering networks, you Glow, as these networks ensure that you create, find and flourish in Hot Spots.
You have two diagnostics to help you understand whether this is an action you should be focusing on. The first is your responses in the Glow Profile in Figure 8.1. This will give you a good idea of how adept you are at jumping across worlds. If your final profile is Profile Type D or E, this action is particularly crucial to you. Also take a look at the names you wrote in the four quadrants in Figure 10.1. Are the relationships in Quadrants 3 and 4 taking as much time as those in Quadrants 1 and 2? Are they as well developed? If you are spending too much time walking the same patch with the same people, Action 5 is crucial for you.
In this chapter, I look at some of the other important information that can be gleaned from a dream, in particular:
• the position of the “I” in the dream: is the dreamer the subject of the dream (is the dream happening to them) or is the dreamer looking on, watching the main action happen to someone else? Are they in a film or a play, or even asleep or drugged?;
• some possible symbolic meanings of death, violence, marriage, sex, gender, and bodily functioning;
• the time setting of the dream: the mix of past, present and future;
• the location: what can be told from the “background” of the dream.
The position of the “I” in the dream
The relation of the dreamer—the “I”—to the other figures and the action of the dream tells us a great deal about how much the dreamer is identified with (and perhaps also, therefore, conscious of) the issues that are being dreamt about; in other words, how much they are a part of how the dreamer sees themselves and, thus, integrated into their ego, or, instead, not yet integrated and part of the dreamer’s shadow.1Compare the following dreams:
W dwch poprzednich rozdziaach dowiedzielimy si, w jaki sposb mona przechowywa informacje w tablicach i listach oraz jak mona je sortowa, przeszukiwa i przetwarza przy wykorzystaniu LINQ. Mimo ogromnego znaczenia list sekwencyjnych oraz tablic prostoktnych nie zaspokajaj one jednak wszystkich naszych potencjalnych potrzeb dotyczcych przechowywania oraz okrelania struktury danych. Dlatego te ten ostatni rozdzia opisujcy kolekcje bdzie powicony niektrym spord pozostaych klas kolekcji dostpnych w .NET Framework.
Sownik (ang. dictionary) jest kolekcj pozwalajc na wyszukiwanie informacji skojarzonych z pewn wartoci. .NET nazywa tak struktur danych sownikiem, gdy przypomina ona tradycyjne drukowane sowniki. W drukowanych sownikach informacje s zamieszczane w taki sposb, by atwo byo odnale wpis powicony konkretnemu sowu. Jeli wiemy, jakiego sowa szukamy, moemy je znale bardzo szybko nawet pomidzy dziesitkami tysicy innych definicji. Informacje uzyskiwane po odszukaniu sowa zale ju od rodzaju sownika.

Josephine Herbst’s novel, Nothing is Sacred, which will be issued in
September by Coward, McCann, took command of my intelligence with its first sentence when I read it in manuscript and it continued to exercise its singular quality of impressive interest until now it has found its publisher and I have read it right through again in proofs. That is due not to the interest of the subject but to the sheer skill of its narrator. There is no reason – no reason in the world – why I, hardened European as I am
– should be interested in and should be kept reading far into the night twice running by the affairs of a quite undistinguished family in a quite indistinguishable American small town – but that is what has happened to me.
You see if a book begins: ‘“Can I talk to you a minute!” said Harry
Norland to his mother-in-law. He stood in the kitchen doorway with his hat on’, you are given at once a sense of interest as strong as you receive at the opening of a good detective story and the person who so begins a book will have the sense to carry it on at the same pitch of interest. There is no reason why the story of a small-town family should not be as interesting as any detective-romance – the trouble usually is that the narrators of such tales begin with the thesis that the life described has by them been found uninteresting and that they must therefore make an uninteresting story out of it. But the actual livers of such lives seldom find them uninteresting per se – or it might be truer to say that the dwellers in small towns seldom find small-town life as such other than thrilling with its struggles for precedence, local renown, prosperity and the rest. They may of course have intervals of dullness – but who has not? But the fact that they continue to live in small towns and that small towns continue to exist is the proof that their inhabitants find there an interest in life that is not apparent to the outsider.
