    hehe - it's ok - i wouldn't have known either - ok lets see if I can explain it right.

    It's basically like a vision or something - you have insight into something but you don't know where it comes from - it only lasts a few seconds apparently.

    hold on - i will try to find a better definition

    But from your dreams how could you describe enough details to distinguish a city?

    Maybe seeing some TV/magazine and the descriptions stuck? Also ever dreamt of 2776 in Cambridge?

    it's more like a waking dream - lasts a very short time. it's like very deep insight into something e.g. how we came to be here etc - mainly answers to philosophical questions i think.

    can be seen in Keats' odes

    Keats...i'm beginning to resent studying him. The fascination with his poetry has faded.

    what even 'to Autumn'? that is my favourite poem by him - such opulence in the lines - so rich and thick with description and sumptuous verse

    on the subject of english, did anyone watch Killing Mr Griffith last night- the plot being a group of high school students kidnap the english teacher in an attempt to get him back for demeaning them but alas, he died for not taking his heart pills. It is a message to us all!
