I must say that I have no idea! I will say that I dream every single night. I believe I have what is known as eeg sleep anamoly.. which basically
means that for whatever reason, my brain gets kicked out of the deep sleep.. which ensues a constant dream state when sleeping (of course, its more
complicated, but that's the general idea).. For this reason, I can sometimes manipulate my dreams. I have even KNOWN I was dreaming.. in my dream I
will even tell myself "You are dreaming"! I sometimes try to wake up, but I cannot. Other times, I have woken up just a few minutes after. It's
usually never scary, just something ordinary, yet I know it's a dream and not reality when it is happening and sometimes I can create things to
But on the other hand, some dreams are SO realistic that it is almost unbelievable. I dream of 1 person in general quite often.I have not seen them in
several years. I often think it might be my mind trying to create closure to something that was very emotional to me for a long time. In my dream,
we are doing ordinary things, talking, going out, etc.. My dream always ends with no real "substance" concluded though - sort of like real life. Is
this my mind's way of trying to find that closure? Maybe somewhere deep down, I miss this person and my mind is lonely for them? Perhaps they are
thinking/dreaming of me and somehow I am being told of this? Maybe there is no reason and it is just random.
Since I am able to manipulate some dreams - but others seem like complete reality - I really cannot come to any conclusion. I really liked this thread
and your questions though!
Maybe an alternate reality? Maybe our mind's wander to other people's minds? Maybe other possibilities that could have happened? or possibly just
our brains shooting out images and we make them into a story somewhere along the way before waking.
I would be kind of embarrassed sometimes if the people I dreamed of had any inkling of it though!
