6. Dreaming. We all appear to dream but the reports concerning the quality of dreams vary tremendously. We do not intend to deal with dreaming in this book, though some individuals experience a scripted fantasy as being dream-like. For most people however, it is clearly different. 7. Hallucinations and perceptual deprivation imagery. If an individual’s sensory experience is limited in some way, perhaps as part of a psychological experiment, under torture or brainwashing, or even performing a monotonous task, then images may be produced spontaneously.
The use of imagery and relaxation in language teaching is not a new development and forms part of the system called Suggestopaedia developed in Bulgaria by Lozanov. For language teachers who require a fuller description of this system, we would recommend Superlearning by Ostrander and Schroeder (1979). Fantasy can be used particularly effectively with students who have special educational needs. There is a wide range and diversity of students who are defined in this way. Although there are specific difficulties to overcome in relation to some disabilities, we know of many teachers who are actively involved in overcoming the barriers.
2. Eidetic imagery. This is the ability to look at a complex visual scene and then be able to ‘see’ it in the ‘mind’s eye’ and describe it in fine detail, as if the eye were a camera photographing a scene. This ability is largely limited to young children and people living in non-technological societies. Some formally educated adults retain this ability in the form of a photographic memory, which has obvious advantages in examinations. 3. Memory imagery. This is quite simply remembering events from the past.
