Sky Ladder: Discover an Artist Reaching for the Sky ... and Falling Back to Earth?

I recently watched a Netflix show called 'Sky Ladder', which I found personally interesting on many levels (pardon the pun:-).
I only watched 'Sky Ladder' because the artistic images I saw in the trailer reminded me of Mike Clelland's dream of climbing a ladder in a dream and falling from it - 
The Wild Wild Life of Talking Heads ... and Owl Messages?
Mike Clelland's and the SKYMAN's March 15th Dream Synch?
Owls and the Deeper Mind section of Mike Clelland's 'The Messengers'
The only reason I discovered 'Sky Ladder' on Netflix and decided to watch it was because I was searching for the movie 'Pollock' after I had read the 'Owls in Dreams' section in Mike Clelland's book
'The Messengers' where Mike writes about Anne Strieber and the letters she read from reader's of her husband's book 'Communion' and how Anne said that the most common phrase in these letters were,
"I had a dream that wasn't a dream." 
'Pollock' wasn't available on Netflix, but for some reason
'Sky Ladder' was offered up to me in the search results for 'Pollock' as an alternative, so I watched that instead.
Christopher Walken as Whitley Strieber in Communion (1989)
Pollock/Strieber August 11th Premonition?
Sky Ladder: The Art of Cai Guo-Qiang (2016)
Cai Guo-Qiang (Chinese: 蔡国强; born 8 December 1957)
Owls, Ladders, Dimensions, Billie Eilish and Jung?
I wonder what compels artists to share their art/dreams with the rest of their fellow humans?
I have to say that Jacob's Ladder type images in art and dreams do seem to have a powerful hold on us humans for some unconscious reason.But what I found personally synchromystic watching 'Sky Ladder' was that back in 2013 Cai Guo-Qiang held an exhibition titled 'Falling Back to Earth' at the art gallery in my Australian hometown of Brisbane (which I didn't pay any attention to at the time, not knowing anything about the artist back then).
It finished on my ex-wife's birthday the year I was divorced?!
Douglas Noel Adams (11 March 1952 – 11 May 2001)
But reading about the 'Falling Back to Earth' art exhibition in Brisbane from an artist obsessed with building a "sky ladder" made me think of Mike Clelland feeling compelled to share his
falling from a ladder dream on his blog this year.
This is the kind of stuff I like reading about at Mike's blog and in his books, those, "I had a dream that wasn't a dream" dreams/experiences.
And if you liked what I have tried to express here in this post, then I think you will like watching 'Sky Ladder', also.

Thank you for the heads up on sky ladder! And thanks again for YOUR mental sky ladders to podcasts, places, experiences and musings. I love that you are linked to me through the secret sunspot where I meander so regularly and that you are so prolific and interestingly clearspoken in your ways. I can't imagine putting my days online but I love that you do! Thanks for sharing skyladder!

RE: "... and that you are so prolific and interestingly clearspoken in your ways." Delorus, I think some readers think that I'm writing in Chinese sometimes;-)
