Nobody truly knows why we dream, though the best contender for the answer seems to be that it's how we process the information of our lives. I know
that most of our dreams are very mundane, and we easily forget them. It's only really the weird dreams that we remember, particularly ones that are
I have never believed dreams to represent more than whatever life situation we're currently in. Your mother lives on in you as a memory. She's bound
to put in the odd appearance in your dreams every now and then. I've dreamt of people who have died too. It's certainly not uncommon.
You can try to interpret your dream, look for symbolism and attach some sort of meaning to it, if that's what intrigues you. Just remember that any
symbolic connotation - such the possible symbolic "meaning" of drinking from someone else's cup - is the product of human invention. We're the product
of our societies, we can't help it. And dreams, in turn, are the products of our minds. Our minds, not the mind of a dead person, or a friend, or
whoever the subject of your dreams is.
If the dead were not only able to communicate with us, but also actually wanted to, why would they use dreams, which are so easily forgotten and
consist almost entirely of nonsense? Doesn't sound like a very good way to get the point across. We've got a strong aversion to death in our society.
Can't even say "he died", most have to use euphemisms like "he passed". Go to your nearest hospital and look at all the old people clinging onto life
with tubes hanging from them, bedridden with wandering minds, who only cling to life because their families can't let go and accept the natural end.
Lots of people think the dead have spoken to them. Not many people want to believe that it all ends when we die.
