I had a presentation in English Class - About Dreams. So I found this information very interesting and wanted to share it with all of you.
Dream is a word used to describe the subconscious experience of a sequence of images, sounds, ideas, emotions, or other sensations usually during sleep There is no neurologically agreed upon, biological definition for dreaming
Every person on earth dreams pretty much every night, and evidence suggests that all mammals dream also. It follows then that something extremely important must be going on while we sleep and dream, yet in the industrialized world, the majority of people pay little attention to dreams, lucid dreams and dream interpretation, and sometimes even shortchange themselves on sleep because it is perceived as lost time, or at best unproductive.
But there is a lot that is unknown about dreams and the purpose of dreams is interpreted in many different ways
What is the purpose of dreams? Do we need to dream? Are dreams an interaction between your subconscious and conscious?
¨ Lucid dreaming occurs when dreamers realize that they are dreaming
The dreamers are sometimes capable of changing their dream environment and controlling various aspects of their dream.
¨The dream environment is often much more
realistic in a lucid dream, and the senses
The realization is usually triggered by the dreamer noticing some impossible or unlikely occurrence in the dream
¨Two types of lucid dreaming: dream-initiated lucid dreaming and wake-initiated lucid dreaming
¨Dream-initiated lucid dreaming: Starts off as a normal dream until the dreamer realizes that they’re dreaming
¨Wake-initiated lucid dreaming: The dreamer goes from a normal waking state directly into a dream state with no apparent lapse in consciousness
¨Time passage appears to be the same during lucid dreaming as when awake
