13 Interesting Things about Dreams
Dreaming is one of the most mysterious and exciting experiences in our lives.
During the Roman Era, some Roman Senate dreams were presented to be analyzed and interpreted. They were considered messages from the gods. Those who interpreted dreams were accompanying military leaders in battles and campaigns!
Besides, it is also known that many artists have received creative ideas in their dreams.
But what do we really know about dreams?
1. We forget 90% of our dreams.
2. The blind people also dreams.
People who have become blind after birth can see images in their dreams. People who are born blind do not see a picture, but they have the same vivid dreams that involve their other senses, sound, smell, touch, and emotion.
3. Everyone dreams.
Everyone dreams (except for extreme psychological disorders). If you think you're not dreaming, you just forget your dreams.
4. In our dreams, we only see the faces of the people we know or have seen at least once.
Our minds do not invent girls or guys in our dreams, we will see real people that we have seen in our lives, many of them we do not even remember. We see hundreds of thousands of faces throughout our lives, so we have an endless source of characters for our brains to use them during our dreams.
5. Not everybody dreams in colors.
12% of people dream only in black and white. Studies conducted between 1915 and 1950 claimed that most of the dreams were in black and white, but after 1960 the results began to change due to TVs and color publications, and today only 4.4% of people under 25 years old dreams in black and white.
6. We feel emotions in our dreams.
Anxiety is the most common emotion we live in dreams. Negative emotions are more common than positive emotions.
7. You can have 4 to even 7 dreams one night.
8. And the animal's dream.
Whoever has a dog can easily see that it is true🙂
9. Body paralysis.
Rapid eye movement (REM) in sleep is a normal stage of sleep characterized by rapid eye movements. The REM sleep phase in an adult usually occupies 20-25% of the total sleep, about 90-120 minutes of sleep per night.
During REM sleep, the body is paralyzed by a mechanism in the brain to prevent the movements that occur in the dream. However, this mechanism may be triggered before, during, or after normal sleep while the brain wakes up.
10. Influence of the dream.
Our mind interprets external stimuli. This means that sometimes in our dreams we hear sound from reality, and our mind includes it in a dream. For example, you could dream that you are at a concert while your brother is playing with a guitar during your sleep.
11. Men and women dream differently.
Approximately 70% of the characters in a man's dream are other men. On the other hand, a woman's dream contains almost an equal number of men and women. Besides, men generally have more aggressive emotions in their dreams than women.
12. Pre-genitive dreams.
The ability to see in the future or actually the ability to "travel" in the future through the dream.
The results of several studies on a large population indicate that between 18% and 38% of people have experienced at least one precognitive dream and 70% have experienced an already vs. The percentage of people who believe in the possibility of precognitive dreams is even higher - from 63% to 98%.
13. The lucid dream.
In the lucid dream, unlike the normal state of dreaming, the person has the ability to become conscious during the dream and to take active control over the action of the dream.
Many of us can easily remember what we dreamed. Dreams give us valuable information about the unconscious.
A lucid dream is very rich in detail. You can see, hear, feel exactly the same as in a real situation. You can also get a more conscious state of consciousness than you have in your waking state. Because everything is happening in your mind, the dream world does not obey any laws of physics. So, you can fly, fight, slow down time, relive memories of childhood ... you can do anything.
The possibilities you have in your lucid dream are endless!
