How do you know aliens do this?
Your saying, as humans view fuel or solar energy or fruit as an energy source...... aliens can use the product of human emotional or spirtual energy as an energy source?

I've kept a dream journal for over 20 years, and I've gotten pretty good at determining where my dream imagery originated. I'd say I pinpoint the source of 99% of my dreams.
For example, I had seen this picture yesterday
From looking at that picture, I had a dream last night where Hitler was looking out from someone's eyeball. I've never seen Hitler looking out of anyone's eyeball before. But that picture set up the basic framework for that dream. An eyeball, and something evil in it. My personal archetype for evil has an association with Hitler. It's more than a logical conclusion I draw between the two, I can literally feel how they are connected.edit on 20-2-2012 by The Cusp because: (no reason given)

I've read that we don't make up faces at all. Anyone who is in your dream is someone that your subconscious mind has recorded/seen. The killer in your dream may be the local bagger you saw at your grocery store years ago, for example.
Which is I guess what your saying in the OP, however your subconscious mind can remember at a capacity you wouldn't believe. The conscious mind is a way for us to deal with the massive information input on our brains, while the Subconscious is like a catalog of everything (some people believe). Idiot Savants, for example, are said to draw from the subconscious mind more than the conscious and these people can remember things in depth at a very high rate.edit on 16-2-2012 by Lapislazuli because: ETA

No when awake I can't summon such detailed images! It's all hazy and more a sort of touch and go. Mind you, I am quite visual. So you seem to have some ability!
My point was that I am starting to wonder if indeed the dream worlds are indeed real, as real as our reality.
I know exactly what you mean,but when i think about things while i'm awake theres very little visualization of images going on and whatever small fraction there is,theres no movement or sound from what i'm thinking about,they are not animated.I can picture someones face,but i cant really see them and theres most certainly no interaction going on with them,just a vague thought about what i think that person looks like...

you know how when you are awake you can think in your mind? you can literally make out images and view stories in your head
