Everybody dreams. Some dreams have special meanings behind them, some dreams put you in a good mood when you wake up in the morning, some are
nightmares that scare the living daylights out of you, and some are lucid fantasy dreams that we create along the way. There are many types of dreams
and every dream we have is different and unique, but one thing is for sure... everybody dreams, and it's something we have been doing as a species
for a very very long time...
So... what kinds of things did our ancestors dream about? There's no doubt that they were very in tune with nature and the world around them...
Because of their deep connection to the earth, were our ancestors able to have extremely vivid, lucid dreams? Did they have more control of their
dreams than we do now? While dreaming, were they able to see into the past as well as the future? There's really no way to know for sure what types
of dreams our ancestors had, but the curiosity is as potent as a skunk's spray to the face, which is why I must ask the questions to attempt to delve
into this topic... as difficult as it may seem.
Perhaps the best clue for trying to piece this puzzle together is to observe ancient cave paintings which give us a glimpse into our ancestors'
psyche. There are many ancient cave paintings that are as much enchanting as they are perplexing. Did ancient man communicate with other beings while
dreaming (in the spirit world) and put what they saw into paintings and carvings? There are many mysterious ancient drawings of "non-human" looking
people and tall beings. Either our ancestors dreamed of this beings and illustrated what they saw in their dreams, or they had actual physical
encounters with these beings which... of course, is for a whole different discussion in a different forum...
When we dream, are we actually in the spirit world, open for communication with other beings... or are we just in our own sub-conscious, walled off
from everybody else? Did the ancients enter the spirit world on a much more frequent basis than we do now? Did they perhaps even attempt to
communicate with people from the future (us)? Did the dreams of our ancestors have a heavy influence on their everyday lives?
