In February 2011, I spent an evening speaking at the Rubin Museum in NYC with punk rock legend, writer, and spoken word artist Henry Rollins. We discussed the origin, meaning, neuroscience, and bizarreness of dreams. He’s high-IQ, engaged in learning, and as sincere as he is agressive in life. A terrific time!
