"Daggers of the Mind" was a purely random phrase. Up to now I still have no idea what it means. :)
Well, it was still a pretty cool title. Maybe it deserves a story?On this same premise: Scott McCloud had an idea generator consisting of random images, which a comic creator could then use a spur for starting a story.Hmmm, I think "Daggers of the Mind" or similar title was actually the title of a Star Trek episode.
Google results - it's the title of a Star Trek episode that's notable for being the first appearance of the Vulcan mind meld. "Dagger of the Mind" is also a reference from Macbeth, though. Since I'm a Macbeth reader but not a Star Wars viewer, I probably subconsciously pulled this from Shakespeare.
