4. They sound like anxiety dreams,

which Freud said were, strangely enough, actually reassurances. They're related to the dreams college students, or even people who left college long ago, have about missing an entire semester of a class and suddenly having to take a test in it.

Has anything like this ever really happened to you? If it's a classic reassuring anxiety dream, you would never, ever find yourself in these situations. These dreams demonstrate how conscientious you are, how responsible in doing things correctly. The fact that the dreams are distressing while you're having them shows that you would never let these things happen to you.

The dreams about the basement ("that's rather small" and the elevator are, again per Freud, sex dreams. He says that anything where you move up or down, and any time you fit into a small space, you're dreaming about sex. And I would point to "My wife is suddenly there" in support of this idea. It's an "SD" card.

All of this is old-school psychoanalysis and would probably not be accepted today, but I find it very interesting ...
