A popular new academic model of the mind based on computer models called Parallel Distributed Processing. Crick & Mitchison noticed that computer nets got overloaded and that random shots through the system seemed to clear it up. They hypothesized that this was a form of un-learning that might take place in the brain during REM sleep phase. Gordon Globus and others have revealed that this theory is a mis-reading of the connectionist neural net work theory and goes against common sense. It is clear in many dreams that there is a narrative, story like pattern and that while difficult at times to understand, is hardly random. Breaks & jumps in the narrative would seen to support Crick& Mitchison, but many breaks retain elements of previous scenes.
