Which will differ vastly from the intense yoga workshop we were subjected to at the

Freud doesn't necessarily agree that dreams can literally predict the future. If he did,
he would probably be remembered as a quack.
However, he does say that the old-school interpretation of dreams isn't to be totally dismissed.
In any case, choice (A) definitely isn't the main point of this passage.
Answer (B) is obviously incorrect. If we've learned anything from this passage, it's
that Freud was all about dream interpretation. (D) is also wrong. Freud says that while they're
connected to the world of the mind, dreams are connected to the physical world as well.
Guess if we want to influence our dreams, we'll have to... get physical.
(C) is the major point of the passage.
Basically, Freud is arguing that dream interpretation and psychoanalysis can go hand in hand.
Or... foot in mouth, as the case may be.
