Description: John Steinbeck wrote, "It is a common experience that a problem difficult at night is resolved in the morning after the committee of sleep has worked on it". Research confirms this: Inspiration to create and solve problems to formal problems of logic can indeed arrive in dreams.

The Committee of Sleep gathers remarkable instances, historical and modern, of the alchemy of dreams, including:
-- How Kubla Khan dreamt the design of his stately pleasure dome.
-- How Jasper Johns conceived in a dream the flag paintings that established him as a major artist.
-- How Frederick Banting isolated the hormone insulin after seeing the technique in a dream.
-- How John Sayles conceived Brother from Another Planet through serial dreaming.

Here is a compelling investigation of how artists and scientists foster creativity through dreaming -- including lucid dreams -- but also a useful source of ideas for readers who want to use their own dreams to solve thorny problems.
