Dreams have been described as dress rehearsals for real life, opportunities to gratify wishes, and a form of nocturnal therapy. A new theory aims to make sense of it all.

In reading about Nelson Mandela, I read about two completely different people.
He accomplished some great things while, from what I have read elsewhere, some very horrible atrocities. Advocating extreme violence in accomplishing goals among other items. So, I am not sure if it was truly charisma. He was a great orator and apparently could connect with an audience and with individuals. However, was the "legend" just that? Was it media manipulation or propaganda that launched what we think of him?
I honestly do not know as I have tried to look at both sides of this and make a determination. But it appears in our media driven age, it is more managing image than anything else.
