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
TIDLIGERE.
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.

i actually suffer from sleep paralysis. the first time it happened, i was about 11 or 12, i didnt know what was going on. i didnt think much of it, just thought i was still dreaming or something. then fell back asleep. had the worst nightmare of my life, then woke up with paralysis again. once i regained movement i was flipping out. while i was paralized, i couldnt talk, scream or even hum. it happens to me about twice a week now, (im 15) and ive learned that if i go back to sleep while still paralized i have the worst nightmares. but if i wait to regain movement, im fine. its werid **** still. although im used it happening now.

if that happens again try concentrating on moving your toes and move your way up.
Heard it from a friend. we were talking about lucid dreaming and when he was woken up he was paralyzed

The brain is connected to the rest of the body through the Cerabellum. Consider it like a clutch of a car.  
  
While you're dreaming you press down on the clutch so in your dreams your brain can give all the gas it wants without actually moving the car. Some people, such as you, sometimes dont get the clutch thing right when they wake up. It typically happens when woken up in a partical dreamstate, the brain is slow to react and keeps the clutch down while your actually awake.  
  
Its also not uncommon for some people who experience this to also halucinate. Afterall, the brain is still (partially) stuck in a dreamstate. The same way some people dream while they are semi-awake. Are able to move voluntairily, like turn on their side or open their eyes without actually interupting the dream.

I have the opposite problem, If I get woken up wrong I can move around and percieve things in the real world but still be dreaming. It is actually really awful because most of the time that happens I have nightmares. So it's like if you were in a horror movie but you know you ARE NOT dreaming.

I remember when I was 6, I woke up and I couldn't move or open my eyes, and I dreamt that this cart with lasers shooting at me was chasing me and it freaked me out.

What you and I had was something called a lucid dream, probably. Where you're in a first and third person view of the dream, basically watching yourself act the dream out while being awake but it's not like when you first go to sleep.

really?

thats strange. it usually only takes me 2-5 minutes to regain movement. but then again ive almost learned some tricks, from it happening multiple times a week for the past three weeks. trick is, to keep your eyes open. dont even ******* blink or you WILL fall back asleep. second, choose one body part. try to move it as hard as you can. even though nothing will happen at all, keep at, as hard as you ******* can for as long as you can. once you can twitch that one part, choose another. and after about 10 minutes or so youll be sitting up pissing yourself. third, and lastly make sure to stand up do something (piss, get water, walk around) to ensure you have full momement before going back to sleep.

hope i could help. in case not, take this and just fap

I had one a bit like that once, only it was that my teeth fell out. No-one in my dream could figure out why I was so upset, and when I woke I spent like a full minute running my tongue over my teeth trying to figure out which ones were missing.
Having your jaw fall off is pretty damn extreme though.

It sucks when you have a legitimate reason to be mad at someone in a dream, then when you wake up you're still kinda mad at them. It must be so confusing to them.
"What's the matter? Why are you so angry at me?"
"As if you don't know, you space nazi sympathizing rat bastard!"
On the flipside, I've also had dreams where I'm relieved to wake up and find people I know aren't actually dead.
