It begins with an assertion about dreaming, and continues with a paragraph which questions its status by bringing in, and simultaneously questioning, the notion of illness. The last paragraph of the text modifies this ambivalence, which has been present, albeit evolving, throughout. In sum, although the narrator clearly identifies post hoc the illusory aspects of his experience, he seeks at the same time to retain a sense of the value of this experience and the convictions to which it has led. But there remains a discordance between dreams resulting in illness on the one hand, and dreams as a source of knowledge and insight on the other.
