Metaphorical Extensions

The representation of the essence of a dream as a contiguous region of memory was a deliberate design consideration for a number of reasons. The defining word for a dream has the disadvantage, in its current form, of requiring the programmer to name those words the dream is closed over. Only words whose names were declared when the dream was instantiated may have their bindings altered in that dream.
