Another way of viewing this strange episode is to reflect upon the past emphasis on the "dream"  aspect or potential unreality of some of the previous events. Possibly, this whole sequence of events  took place only in Sinclair's mind. Maybe he actually wrote the note himself in one of his dreamlike  moments. or maybe it didn't even exist outside of his dream world. This becomes the noticeable  beginning of a sequence of events when Demian (self) and, later, his mother ( anima ) become  increasingly internalized within Sinclair, thus indicating Sinclair's process of attaining a harmony of  his various parts. This has been hinted at from the beginning when, in his amazement at Demian's  ability to see inside others, Emil stated that it was as if Demian knew more about him than he  himself. Perhaps, then, Demian is, or has become, Emil's own unconscious. Hesse himself offered a
