i can't read letters in my dreams, but i do know, that what happens is if i'm looking at something, like a book, mag or newspaper whatever
information i'm supposed to know is more so given to me versus read. i believe that the act or going thru the motions of reading while dreaming, is
the middle man 'tween me and the source of whatever gives the information.
I only remember one dream where I've read anything. I was looking at a carton of milk on a table. It had big black bold letters that said MILK.
It then developed little cartoon dots for eyes and a frowny mouth and told me off, for it was not milk, but a metal.
I'll definately pay more attention to any reading I do in dreams from now on though.
From what I remember taking in highschool psych classes (which isn't much, I could very well be mistaken), and a little bit of my own research, it
isn't so much that you can't read, but that the words don't stay consistent. As in if you were reading a paragraph in a dream, and looked away and
back again, the words wouldn't be in the right order, or would just be different. I know this is how it works for numbers in dreams -try looking at a
clock in your dream and then check it again, the time should be totally different -, but I can't remember if this is for words as well
I completely agree with this. All I have is, mostly, just nightmares, but when I do get (kind of) a good night's sleep, I see very life-like dreams.
In most of them I have to read something, but every time I go ahead and read the text, I can't see it. It just kinda "pops" in my head. So, at
least, in my case, it's impossible to read while sleeping.
