"Ramanujan credited his acumen to his family Goddess, Namagiri of Namakkal. He looked to her for inspiration in his work, and claimed to dream of blood drops that symbolised her male consort, Narasimha, after which he would receive visions of scrolls of complex mathematical content unfolding before his eyes. He often said, "An equation for me has no meaning, unless it represents a thought of God." from wiki. Mendeleev discovered periodic table in his dream. has there been any other such recorded incidences.I find it quite amazing how one could dream such complicated formulas in dream. I myself have had dreams on mathematics but never was it that I discovered something new.So I am curious to know.Do people here have had such experiences.I would be glad if they share their experiences. Since some of the best minds of mathematics are here,I bate there would be quite a people who can contribute.
I am not sure by the way if this question is appropriate for this forum.
