Dmitri Mendeleev

Welcome to our famous dreams page.

Dmitri Mendeleev was a Russian aristocrat and academic with a vested interest in the basic elements of the universe that combine in all manner of forms to make up physical matter.

Mendeleev could not comprehend or explain the seemingly random properties of these building blocks. That is; until one day whilst vacationing with his family he took a nap.

Mendeleev had been listening to his family struggle to play chamber music. He grew tired and, upon excusing himself, went to bed and drifted off to sleep listening to the music.

Mendeleev dreamed a vision of the basic elements of the universe flowing together in a manner akin to the progression of a musical sequence; orderly and beautiful. He awoke and outlined from his dream every element in order. This sequence became known in all chemistry texts as the >i>Periodic Table of Elements.
