Posts tagged ‘Dream Interpretation’
In an earlier post about sleep, I promised this post would not be far behind. From the moment we enter REM, we are launched into a world of the unimaginable. We can dream of practically anything, and nothing is impossible. You can go on that dream date with Mr./Mrs. Right, or climb the career ladder of your choice. Dreams are often much more obscure, and you find yourself mugging someone’s Grandma whilst your front teeth are falling out. We sometimes have dreams so vivid, we struggle to distinguish between reality and fantasy. A few unfortunate beings find themselves unable to control their own movements during sleep due to dreaming – these people are known as sleepwalkers. So what is the advantage of our fictional adventures during sleep? It would seem logical that they must occur as a result of something, otherwise they would be pointless. Of course, this is not the case. This post explores one theory of sleep, and provides examples of interpretations of common dreams.
