    HELLO!

    Please can someone tell me where this quote is from..

    "And since most of our basic desires involve those things which are taboo or modified by moral precepts, especially sexual desires, or desires to commit hostile and violent acts. We find that these things are not allowed to appear directly in our dreams. Instead they are modified by regrouping, substitution, displacement and other devices that disguise them."

    It's at the end of a song by Cunninlynguists, so no points for anyone who tells me it's from them!

    But if anyone knows where it's from then please help me out, it's killing me!

    I agree with the post above mine, it sounds distinctly like something Freud would have said.
