Dreams combine our perceptions, preferences, desires, and fears with hallucinogenic processes of the unconscious mind. “Internally generated activity is modulated by sensory input (perception). … Asleep vision (dreaming) is perception not tied down to anything in the real world. … What we call normal perception does not really differ from hallucinations, except that the latter are not anchored by external input.” (pages 44-46)
“A popular model of the neuroscience literature suggests that dream plots are stitched together from essentially random activity: discharges of neural populations of the mid-brain (p. 139)”
In other words, things we see, hear, taste, or feel are incorporated into internally generated mental activity of a hallucinatory nature; therefore, dreams do not necessarily have any meaning; although they may reflect our perceptions, preferences, desires, and fears.

my god daughter. anybody knows what this could mean?
Last night i had a dream about my fionce's brother, the only problem is, his brother has been dead since 2009 and i dont know him ive never met him never saw him or anything.. The dream takes place in my house, but my house is backwards like everything is on the oppisite side of where it should be which i realize is typical in dreams...it starts off with me being haunted im the only one in the house the lights in one specific room keep turning on and off and i feel threatend i run out of the house but have nowhere to go. so i sit on the porch steps terrified..two guys come up to the house and i dontremeber why they were there or anything this part of the dream is vague to me i am having difficulty remembering it. the part i do remember is everyone on the porch with me trying to figure out what to do and i look up at the window in my door and i see him for the first time clear as day but stilll a ghost and im the only one who can see him...now i know my fionces brothers name is mark but for some reason atthis point in my dream i say "markie?" and he goes "shhh" with a finger over his lips. iask him why he was scaring me and all that and he says "i just want u to know that im here" i remember he was wearing a red beanie and a sip up jacket i remember every detail of his face...i then say to everyone so calmly "its ok its just markie" and im overcome by this complete calmness and relaxation, next thing i knew we were in the house again and markie as his ghost form was playing chess with a friend of mine (very well alive) and everyone was smiling and having a good time. then i wake up...now i have come to find out the bed my fionceand i have been sleeping on was marks bed before he had died. i talk to my sister about it, and she then takes out her phone and has me listen to something she had recorded one night its fuzzy staticy you really have to listen hard but a males voice says "i just want you to know .." and trails off. if you remember in my dream, he says "i just want u to know im here...wether or not this is relevant idk. opinions would be nice thank you
Example: Dream meaning about sister-in-law?
I had a strange dream about my sister-in-law. Can someone explain? She is sitting at a jewelry dept. in a retail store with one of her breast exposed and pumping breast milk. The strange thing is that in real life she is in her 60's and never had children. She strictly professional. What is the interpretation?
I was engaged about a yr ago but, didn't get married. I kept the dress and I had a dream that I was going to get married to the same guy and when I looked at myself, I wasn't wearing the wedding dress. When I looked up, his sister was wearing my dress and it was her wedding.
His mother keeps having a dream that she wont eat. She will stay in bed crying. Im confused. What are the dreams really trying to tell us? They can remember the dreams as if it had happened to them in real life. Please Help!
i have had 2 dreams of relations with my brother -in-law twice in 6 months. not as if i fancy him so i do not know why this is happening.
have you had dreams of sexual relations with your brother/sister in-law? more than once even?
what may that mean.
First off let me say, that my sister in law and i were not close. We had begun to make amends, hanging out a little more calling each other a little more. but our ages differences were a big factor. I am 28 she was 42. we take a family trip each year to mexico, but while on vacation this year she contacted strep. Once we came back to the states, she ended up in ICU, then passed.
Last night I had a dream with her in it. We were talking, I told her thaI'mIm sorry for any mean thoughts that i had about her. She said it was ok. but she was looking for her hubby, my brother in law. (she was still dead in my dream, It was her spirit in my dream too)I told her that he moved back in with his mom. that he lost the house.She was livid! She wanted me to tell him.."we should of never went tManny'sys"which is a bar we frequent in mexico. What does this mean? do i tell him anything?
i keep dreaming about beating up my sister in law witch i dont like at all , i've wanted to kick her *** before but she punked out like the punk she is .. but now i keep dreaming about it what does that mean ?
