Dream level: is it the same as dreaming into a situation?

Arny Mindell talks about different levels of experience:

The Question

When I think up a story, or see a person in a cafe and make up a story, or generally follow my stream of consciousness, is it the same as the dreaming level?
What do you think?
If so why, if not why not?

    Hi Kate, Mary here! The above is just what I’ve needed to read, as I have had correspondence with Helen Wells about the different levels (for Terminology of POP, for my thesis), and wasn’t quite getting it till reading this. I may just quote you directly! I’ve emailed you on a number of occasions about my thesis, which I’m hoping to complete by the end of next week. I’ll try again!
    I also read what you wrote on rank for worldwork. It is similar to a handout we got during the training (Becoming a Relationship Warrior, June 1997, Ireland). It doesn’t say on it who gave that seminar, whether it was you and Joe or others. Do you recall? Anyway, I would like to combine the two, i.e. including signals of higher and lower rank, as an appendix to my thesis, so am seeking permission to do so.Glad to see you only posted yesterday and hoping I may hear from you. With love.

      Hi Mary, It’s great to see you here! I’m so glad that my little blip from yesterday was useful. Congratulations on getting your thesis done! I know it’s a great contribution. Let’s be in touch on email about the rank signals. Rank is an interesting and important area. Cheers and love to you.

    This narrative or stream of consciousness seems to happen mostly on the dreaming level but the aspects of experience happen on all three levels. So isn’t it more about where the “focus” is?
