Top 10 Amazing Facts About Dreams

10. Blind People Dream
People who become blind after birth can see images in their dreams.
People who are born blind do not see any images, but have dreams
equally vivid involving their other senses of sound, smell, touch and
emotion. It is hard for a seeing person to imagine, but the body' s need
for sleep is so strong that it is able to handle virtually all physical
situations to make it happen,

9. You For a 90% of our Dreams
Within 5 minutes of waking, half of your dream if forgotten.
Within 10, 90% is gone. The famous poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge,
woke one morning having had a fantastic dream (likely opium induced) -
he put pen to paper and began to describe his "vision in a dream" in what
has become one of English' s most famous poems: Kuala Khan.
Part way through (54 lines in fact) he was interrupted by a
Person from Pollock". Coleridge returned to his poem but could not
remember the rest of his dream. The poem was never completed.
In Xanadu did Kuala Khan
A stately decree:
Where AIM, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a Sunless sea.
8. Everybody Dreams
Every human being dreams (except in cases of extreme psychological
disorder) but men and women have different dreams and different
physical reactions. Men tend to dream more about other men,
while women tend to dream equally about men and women.
In addition, both men and women experience sexually related physical
reactions to their dreams regardless of whether the dream is sexual in
nature; males experience erections and females experience increased
vaginal blood flow.
In a recent sleep study, students who were awakened at the beginning
of each dream, but still allowed their 8 hours of sleep, all experienced
difficulty in concentration, irritability, hallucinations, and signs of psychosis
after only 3 days. When finally allowed their REM sleep the student' s
brains made up for lost time by greatly increasing the percentage of
sleep spent in the REM stage.
6. We Only Dream of What We Know
Our dreams are frequently full of strangers who play out certain parts -
did you know that your mind is not inventing those faces - they are
real faces of real people that you have seen during your life but may
not know or remember? The evil killer in your latest dream may be the
guy who pumped petrol in to your Dad' s carlsen you were
just a little kid. We have all seen hundreds of thousands of faces
through our lives, so we have an endless supply of characters for our
brain to utilize during our dreams.
5. Not Everone Dreams in Color
of sighted people dream exclusively in black and white.
The remaining number dream in full color. People also tend to have
common themes in dreams, which are situations relating to school,
being chased, running slowly/ in place, sexual experiences, falling,
arriving too late, a person now alive being dead, teeth falling out, flying,
failing an examination, or a car accident. It is unknown whether
the impact of a dream relating to violence or death is more emotionally
charged for a person who dreams in color than one who dreams in black
and white.
4. Dreams are not about what they are about
If you dream about some particular subject it is not often that the
dream is about that. Dreams speak in a deeply symbolic language.
The unconscious mind tries to compare your dream to something else,
which is similar. its like writing a poem and saying that a group Frants
were like machines that never stop. But you would never compare
something to itself, for example: "That beautiful sunset was like a
beautiful sunset”. so whatever symbol your dream picks on it is most
unlikely to be a symbol for itself.
3. Quitters have more vivid dreams
People who have smoked cigarettes for a long time who stop,
have reported much more vivid dreams than they would normally
experience. Additionally, according to the Journal of Abnormal Psychology:
Among 293 smokers abstinent for between 1 and 4 weeks, 33% reported
having at least 1 dream about smoking. In most dreams, subjects caught
themselves smoking and felt strung negative emotions, such as panic and
guilt. Dreams about smoking were the result of tobacco withdrawal,
as 97% of subjects did not have them while smoking, and their occurrence
was significantly related to the duration of abstinence. They were rated
as more vivid than the usual dreams and were as common as mast
major tobacco withdrawal symptoms."
2. External Stimuli Invade our Dreams
This is called Dream Incorporation and it is the experience that most of
us have had where a sound from reality is heard in our dream and
incorporated in some way. A similar (though less external) example
would be when you are physically thirsty and your mind incorporates that
feeling in to your dream. My own experience of this includes repeatedly
drinking a large glass of water in the dream which satisfies me, only to
find the thirst returning shortly after- this thirst... drink, thirst... loop often
recurs until I wake up and have a real drink. The famous painting above
Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee around a Pomegranate a Second
Before Awakening) by Salvador Dali, depicts this concept.
1. You are paralyzed while you sleep
Believe it or not, your body is virtually paralyzed during your sleep -
most likely to prevent your body from acting out aspects of your dreams.
According to the Wikipedia article on dreaming, "Glands begin to secrete
a hormone that helps induce sleep and neurons send signals to the spinal
cord which cause the body to relax and later become essentially paralyzed,"
Bonus: Extra Facts
l, When you are snoring, you are not dreaming.
2, Toddlers do not dream about themselves until around the age of 3.
From the same age, children typically have many more nightmares than
adults do until age 7 or 8.
3. If you are awakened out of REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep,
you are more likely to remember your dream in a more vivid way than
you would if you woke from a full night sleep.
