Dreams Research and History

No group of scientists or psychologists has ever produced a definition of dreaming that any other
group agreed with. Ergo, there is no biological reason for, or definition of dreaming.

Some information we can agree on is that generally dreams are associated with a type of sleep
known as REM sleep, when the brain is as close to the waking state as it can be and still provide rest. However, researchers agree about the time when dreams are most prolific and the strongest.

It is not known which aspect of the brain controls dreams or whether there is in fact an aspect of
the brain that controls them. It is also unknown why dreams occur. 
Dreaming is a necessary aspect of our lives actually.

Both Freud and Jung said that dreams are an interaction between our conscious and our unconscious. 
They also believe almost as one unit on this subject that the dominant aspect of the dream is the unconscious. It is in fact finding a way to let the conscious mind know of its own state of awareness.

Jung also believed that the bizarre aspects of the dream were a language all their own, which he 
compared to poetry and stated that they were "uniquely capable of revealing" the dreams’ meaning.
Many companies, groups and psychics have over the years made a reasonable living at offering dream interpretations. Yet no one is certain that this is possible. Certain key aspects of a dream may relate
to a given event but even that is not a certainty.
