Another interesting note about the Brunner-Barth conflict is a dream Barth had while his friend Thurneysen dreamed that Barth was trying to push Brunner over the side of I guess a cliff. Barth dreamed that he was skipping stones on the shore of a lake when suddenly Brunner tried to take the last stone from Barth. Of course Barth bested him and threw the stone. Schildmann sees a sibling rivalry in Barth's dream: Barth is the older, domineering brother (and actual eldest son) in the relationship.
