I believe in parallel/alternate universes; ones that exists for each and every possible outcome....
and not just OURS, but for every being in every civilization in the entire universe.
I firmly believe that when we dream, we are actually traveling to these other universes, temporarily experiencing our alternate realities and not as a
mere spectator, but living it out alltogether.
Most would argue and say that dreams are solely your imagination (gone wild) while you are at a state of deep rest. Here is my main counter:
-Imagination (or daydreams) DO NOT have the many intricate details found in dreams; colors, textures, smells, physical harm, plants, dogs, sunshine,
raindrops, furniture, dirt, sidewalk cracks, etc). For example, If wanted to daydream about being with Michael Vick, all my mind is going to conjure
will be his face, body, me and a very bland event that lasts only seconds (kissing, etc.....). But if I DREAM about him, there will be emphasis on
every detail of our clothing, the place, the weather, the lighting in the room, aroma, voices, pictures on the wall, carpet color, etc. Our minds
will not produce these minute details on a whim.
Dreams are already occuring by the time you 'get there'. You appear to have been 'placed' in this other 'You' that exists within another reality;
perhaps you are a famous actor, or a mother of four instead of two...but its always 'You'. After you wake, the 'characters' of the dream may not be
recognizable where in dreamland they were, and so are places and talents.
Travel to other universes can also involve a bit of time travel. Remember that the art of time travel is simply going faster than the motion of your
galaxy through the universe either forward or backward (basically faster than the speed of light). Well, when we visit dreamland, our minds have been
set to its most purest state. Most would assume that we are unconscious during REM but studies show that our brain wave movement moves the same as
when we are awake. So how does this tie into time travel? The mind, in my opinion, is in a sense a 'wormhole' where travel can be done much faster
to greater distances. Electro magnetic waves (radio waves) have the ability to travel at or faster than the speed of light and brain waves are
technically radio waves.
Think about it: the only thing that can travel faster than the speed of light is the speed of THOUGHT.
I can literally think my way into a vast distance much quicker than light can get there.
This allows us to travel grand distances throughout this universe and millions of multi-verses when our mind is at this -subconscious-like state' back
in time, forward in time, alternate realities.
That is why in dreams, things seem 'crazy' or too fantastical. There are more laws of gravity and laws of physics than those of this universe.
Also in dreams, when we 'switch scenes' it is because we are traveling and visiting so many different times and places that they appear to blend
Lastly, when we awake, notice how you are always a tad bit 'off' for a small, small, moment. I believe that we are disoriented because there is a
brief moment of, "Where (or When) am I?" We quickly gather in the new scene of our familiar surroundings; laws of physics appear to be what we are
used to and so we know we have arrived back 'home'.
