MY FRIENDSHIP WITH ED TAUBER developed during the sixties at a time when I was involved in setting up and running a community mental health center at Maimonides Hospital and, at the same time, struggling to keep a sleep and dream laboratory going there. It was our mutual interest in dreams that brought us together. I had been deeply influenced by the book Ed wrote with Maurice Green (Prelogical Experience), a book which, incidently, deserved far greater recognition than it received. The exciting and liberating insights into the metaphorical thinking that shapes one's dreams got my own creative juices going.

Ed showed some interest in my writings and, at one point, suggested we get together to explore the possibility of a joint research effort. He knew of the laboratory at Maimonides and, stimulated by the REM research, he had some ideas of his own that he wanted to explore. These were the natural outgrowth of two long standing interests of his, his fascination with the problem of color vision and his passionate interest in lizards.

A kind of intellectual courtship then ensued in which Ed would call me whenever a new idea would occur to him, which was quite often and if I could manage to be free he would appear at my home within half an hour (regardless of the time of night). I don't recall the content of most of our discussions but I do recall the style. I'm a listener. Ed was a talker. Ed, very much the serious, knowledgeable and thoughtful scientist, would muse out loud on the various clinical and research problems that interested him.
