The Dream: I am copying a masterful piece of art. At first I find it very tedious, and then I discover how much I'm learning by my attempt at replication.
Interpretation: This particular dream is a teaching dream: it's telling me that one important way we learn is through imitation. How far does that sort of learning go back? The dream was inspired by watching Cave of Forgotten Dreams last night, which explores a French cave discovered in the 90s that was filled with paintings 30,000 to 40,000 years old.
