The Basic Facts about Dreams

  • Dreams are a key ingredient of our sleep.
  • Whether or not we remember them, we do usually dream each night many
    times over as we rest.
  • Dreaming is a product of our daytime thoughts and our small worries or fears or perhaps of aspirations.
  • Humans spend about 5-6 years or about a tenth of their lives in their dream state.
  • We do not always remember dreams when we wake up.

There is something fascinating and mysterious about dreams.
They are like short films played in our head while we sleep.
Some of them are pleasant, but some may be quite frightening or upsetting. 
These are nightmares and they often come back over and over, terrorizing a person’s life.

Sometimes the stories seem to be meaningful and are somewhat related to a previous experience or emotion. Often however, it is just a bunch of chaotic events rather unlikely to occur in reality and impossible to control.

The exception is lucid dreaming, in which a dreamer realizes that they are dreaming, and they are sometimes capable of changing the reality around him or her and controlling various aspects of the dream.

There are many theories on the source or reason of why we dream, but scientists 
are still working on these issues, trying to find more satisfying answers.

People were always interested in the meaning of dreams, and some have tried to interpret the dreams they had. 

Dreams were often considered reflections of the subconscious, and spiritually as messages from God or predictions of the future.

Some people believe that the human soul temporarily leaves its body during the dream-state, wandering in other worlds and meeting other souls, including those 
of the dead.

There are no doubts that dreams are a form of brain activity. Usually people dream 
4 to 6 times per night. Most likely it happens during the REM stage of sleep when 
the brain is active, but it is not uncommon to dream in non-REM sleep.
