The Analects attributes a curious lament to its figure of Confucius: “How seriously I have declined! It has been so long since I last dreamed of the Duke of Zhou.” Already by the Western Han, then, there was the notion of a pipeline between one’s diurnal practice and one’s dream life. If you practiced some art, skill, or path of self-cultivation intently enough, you might continue the discipline while asleep, perhaps to be visited in dreams by those you seek to emulate.
