They're fun. I often have very lucid dreams involving aliens. I say lucid as in very vibrant, complex, and having awareness with cognitive functions
present the same as when conscious. I was trying to explain it to a guy at the bar the other day, and he tuned out when I said I could remain in the
dream state while retaining logical capacities. He couldn't do it, said it always woke him up when he realized it was a dream. His words were, "well
that's when you're using your active brain". He seemed quite a bit more dull after that moment, so I played a bit dumb to keep the peace. So sad many
are not able to do this as well.
So the teaching bit.. that happens. In general, the more vibrant, the more complex, and if you allow the dreamscape to organize from your
subconscious, then there will be knowledge and lessons to be learned. Often times, it's like a video game for me. I have to face symbolic fears which,
as far as I can tell, relate to unlocking more conscious awareness in waking reality. After I have conquered the fear, and leveled up, the dream will
no longer reoccur, and I will advance to the next fear. This happened as a child, and into early adulthood. I still have vivid experiences, but no
longer are there lessons. I'm aware what's left is to experience, enjoy, and share.
Strange writings for an agnostic leaning atheist, eh? Trust me, I could actually begin to explain this from an evolutionary standpoint, as cultural
phenomena, if bothered to ( I won't be anytime soon).
