Last night's dream

I dreamed I was in Iran, which had apparently just instituted a policy that anyone who wanted to LEAVE their country (even if a citizen of another country and only intending to visit Iran temporarily) must first pass an exam covering basic Islamic doctrine and the Koran.

Knowing almost nothing about either, in my dream I'd signed up for a review class the Iranian government was offering for foreigners who wanted to leave.

Information essential to pass this exam was being written on a classroom blackboard at a furious pace, but I woke up immediately after one particular thing had been written on this blackboard, and hence I was able to remember it. Here's what it said:

"THE NATURE OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN: The world men create must offer women peace, health, and security, since as an indirect consequence of their reproductive capacity only women are capable of seeing the face of God."

That's apparently not Islamic doctrine, and I have NO idea whether there is any real religion which has something like it a doctrine.

So, I guess the most I can say is that it's the kind of thing which gets written on Iranian blackboards in my dreams :)
