But in this retirement of the mind from the senses, it often retains a yet more loose and incoherent manner of thinking, which we call dreaming.
 John Locke, An Essay Concerning Human Understanding (1689). copy citation

Context

“I need not, for this, instance in those who sleep out whole stormy nights, without hearing the thunder, or seeing the lightning, or feeling the shaking of the house, which are sensible enough to those who are waking. But in this retirement of the mind from the senses, it often retains a yet more loose and incoherent manner of thinking, which we call dreaming. And, last of all, sound sleep closes the scene quite, and puts an end to all appearances. This, I think almost every one has experience of in himself, and his own observation without difficulty leads him thus far.” source
