Hi, i have a question about a dream i had last night.
Please excuse the odd details, but as you know, dreams rarely make perfect sense. In my dream i had bought a CT scanner, the ones that take scans of
the brain, from ebay. It was a real old thing, like those first huge computers. I figured it would me great storage for some of my tools.
So in the dream, i find that the machine is working, and i decide to give myself scan for a laugh. The scan showed that i had some kind of lump
growing in my brain which was concerning. Slightly odd i guess.
What i find interesting though, is that from that moment on in my dream, i went through the whole proccess that you would go through if this were to
happen to you, and at every stage of the scenario, i knew exactly what the medical professionals were talking about. It was almost as though i had as
much knowledge of brain surgery and the workings of the brain as they did.
I'm talking advanced medical techniques and terminology, even as far as them operating on me.......it was as though i knew exactly what they meant
and what to do next.
Yet at this moment, i am awake, and i am baffled by it all.
I do have some background knowledge on brain tumours, as my dad died of one and my step-dad has one too. I have been with him throughout his hospital
appointments and the whole proccess. I only know the basics that any other person would know though.
I'm not stupid. I have an ok education, and have a good general knowledge of most subjects, but not to the degree i was dreaming last night. It's
like i was dreaming using the brain of a consultant neurosurgeon.
I do have a history of what i have been told is lucid dreaming. (I think thats correct). Where i can control my dreams as they go along, and change
the course of them whist i am dreaming.
So i just wondered if anyone else has experienced this whilst dreaming?
Can you dream more intelligently than you are in real life?
Thanks in advance for any replies.
