When there are other people in your "dreams" that you interact with, are they really there with you (as in a live feed) or are they there simply constructed for you and perhaps even by you?

I don't know about others, but I have "dreams" every night. They are very vivid, realistic and always in color. I can feel or touch the people and objects around me, sense energy, see, hear, smell, think. For me "dreams" are as real as normal life, sometimes even more. I never see them in third person or from a different perspective. It is all the time me - in first person. Through my eyes. My "dreams" are most of the time also fairly complex, composed of several scenarios with fluent transitions between them. They may be, but don't have to, directly related. Almost every night they involve different people and sometimes even certain beings. In most cases I have never met them before in real life. In fact, I think it would be impossible. They are from a certain perspective strangers, but at the same time they feel very natural and familiar in the "dream" world. They are meant to be there and so am I. The location of my "dreams" changes each night automatically as well. I very rarely had "dreams" that repeated themselves over time. I sleep hard and often also wake up tired, because in my "dreams" I am commonly busy. The amount of time I sleep doesn't change that. It always depends on how much demanding these "dreams" are.
What I personally find most interesting though is the fact that I am able to remember my dreams - nearly all of them. I can maintain these memories for as long as I want and I treat them as real life scenarios. I don't distinguish between events from "dreams" and real life, because I find them equally real and important. From time to time they even suddenly pop up in front of me while I am doing something and awake. Some dreams I have been able to remember for many years.
I do not believe "dreams" are the brain's way of relaxing and projecting scenarios depending on thoughts stored in your subconscious mind. I am convinced these "dreams" are real events occuring in a different dimension and, in some cases, at a different time.

I certainly hope that the person you are dreaming about does not share the same dream with you. I have had some pretty explicit dreams about a few people in my life, and lets just say it would be some rather awkward conversations following some of the dreams that I have had.
I have often pondered the thought of asking a couple of the people that I have had dreams about if they have had any dreams about me, but then they would know that I have been dreaming about them, which could possibly make it equally as awkward especially if they demand to know details.
ETA: The odd thing is I do not think about these people in an "explicit" manner, which is odd to me. Seems like I would dream these types of dreams about people that I have thought about in that way rather than people that I do not.......edit on 7/15/2013 by SpaDe_ because: (no reason given)

even certain beings.
