Example: Do dreams mean anything?
I was wondering if dreams had an actual meaning. Why do we have dreams?
"Dreams are the road to the royal unconscious." - Sigmund Freud.
Well, dreams actually serve two major purposes, a physiological purpose and a psychological purpose.
Physiologically, dreaming is a natural and necessary function of the brain. We all dream. Anyone who says they don't is mistaken; he or she simply isn't remembering them. During sleep, the brain goes through many stages of brain wave patterns.
The first stage is the "Alpha". The second stage of sleep is the "Theta" stage. Scientists call this the non-rapid eye movement (N-REM) stage.
Third is the "Delta" stage of sleep. (REM). It is called REM because our eyes are actually rapidly moving bout underneath those closed lids. We are actually watching what is going on in our dream! It is also believed that all that eye movement helps to supply much-needed oxygen to the cornea of the eye.
The brain goes through these various stages of sleep every ninety minutes throughout the night until we wake up. And each time we enter the "Alpha" stage our time spent dreaming is longer and longer. That last dream we have before we wake up could have been up to fourty-five minutes long!
All these stages of sleep, especially the REM stage, are believed to play a part in the learning process.
Hope that helps, good dreams to you :)
Example: What does my dream mean?
Last night, I had an extremely random, yet almost scary dream. It started like this:
I was in a huge, yet dirty and old zoo. I was looking through dirty glass at various baboons flinging crap at each other, then another tank, that held dirty water, agley and Manatees. I was upset with how the zoo was treating the animals, so I decided to leave. I texted my parents that I'd meet them at the bottom of this elevator. They never showed up. It then randomly happened that I was in Germany. So I ran away into the Black Forest. The forest was extremely dark, and I came across various rooms made of trees. These rooms were where the zookeepers lived. I heard a zookeeper coming, so I ran off until I came across a train. I hopped on one of the cars and counted my money. Then I realized a couple of my friends were in the car too. I started speaking German, and I was enjoying the scenery (might I add, I've never been to Germany before) it started snowing as the train pulled up to a town. Me and my friends decided to buy supplies to start a life. We went into a mall, and found out that we were in St.Georg, DE. My wifi kicked on, and I got a billion texts from my dad asking where I was, and telling me to be safe. I felt bad, so I went to St.Georg Catholic Church to pray. (I am an atheist too...) then I simply woke up.
What. Is. Wrong. With. My. Brain?
Example: Dreams...what does it mean?
well, basically this dream I remember in full detail, it was very very strange and I somehow tricked myself in it, like one of those movies where you are like WHAT?!?! at the end...
It started with me being in a class-room, all of a sudden there was a weird sound kind of like lazer beams and the walls and windows turned purple and yellow really fast for about a second and i was just like man the hell was that? all of a sudden im at work (pizzahut) and this person comes up to me and has a frozen baby, saying she just gave birth to it. Another lady now comes and has a second frozen baby, saying she just gave birth too and that both of them won some kind of world wide pregnancy award or something and thats what the sound & lights were. so they put the babys and sweet potatoe fries into a freezer and left. after that these two hydras (were long neck dinosaurs though) were coming out of a river and they had the two frost babys on their back and the landscape was filled with a beach full of evergreen trees and my friend tyler was throwing rocks and fries at them and he needed food so i scouted the trees and found blocks of butter, jello and lollipops (i remember this like it literally happened) and i gave it to him, then we were infront of a school walking around and we were going to go into a pool when someone asked me if i was going to his party, i said i could that I had work and proceeded by telling him that I am going to the pool; he said good luck the guard will never let. Turns out the guard was one of the frost baby bearers and let us, when we got there I was randomly in this holy shrine-like room with statues and weird pillars and all of a sudden a big long head and neck rolls in, I tell Tyler to be quiet so it doesnt attack us, it couldnt see clearly but it was sniffing around and tyler started making weird noises so i flicked a rock away and it hit the far wall and it turned and went for it.. turns out the neck with the head was just a badger? after this a weird man in a purple suite comes in and says good luck. followed by a little girl who says her mom wont give her any art supplies, so i pulled out some paint brushes and equipped her. After that she just decimated into the wind and dissapeared, so we went outside the room and saw a schoolbus outside. we got in and it started driving full speed towards the river. I asked tyler what would you do if it went right into the river? he said " i wouldnt like that lake anymore!" and as it was about to go right into the river and I started to panic a bit and all of a sudden the bus did a drift on the sand, but really fast, fast enough that it shot me out the back and I could see myself flying far across and i just saw the land under me moving.. (like 1kilometer up in the air) ... all of a sudden i wake up (in the dream) and people are surrounding me, I woke up as one of the frost babies..when I looked over, Tyler woke up.. as the second frost baby. kinda a mindfuck just woke up and was like what the **** just happened?! I told my friend tyler in real life and he was like the hell?! post it on yahoo answers see what you get! so I am.. I know it's probably nothing but theres some type of theory to such dreams, why did I remember it so well? how could you possibly mindfuck yourself? not sure. might've just had a higher release of dimethyltriptamine during my sleep.
if you actually read all this congrats :P
Example: Is there a meaning to this dream?
In my dream ,I was a bear(female) with a husband and son(we were all bears). We were traveling and came across a village(all human). The main source of money was cinnamon rolls. The village grew the ingredients for cinnamon rolls but the ingredients were scarce and only the king knew how to make cinnamon rolls the right way.But then I came along, and I knew how to make cinnamon rolls, but no one believed me so I had a showdown with the the king. The people of the village didnt like this because this involved using the ingredients. To make the cinnamon rolls i made this paper-like dough and wrapped it around my hand. After a few minutes I took it of my hand and put it in the sink where it turned into a sponge and it would take 6 months to turn into a cinnamon roll. If my cinnamon roll turned out better than the kings cinnamon roll then I would have to become the new ruler of the village and the kings advisor(a short man/rabbit) didnt like that. So he turned the village against me and said that I was a phony who couldnt make cinnamon rolls and had wasted their supplies and they all came at me with guns. The king was in love with me, so he helped me survive while the villagers shot at me, but if I was shot 11 times I would die. After 5 months and the villagers were still shooting at me, I had been shot 10 times and started dying. While I died I said, "Dont destroy the cinnamon roll. Wait for it to bloom then eat it." As soon as I died(probaly from blood loss) the sponge turned into a cinnamon roll, and everyone ate it and it was the greatest cinnamon roll in history.

I had a dream last night that I was being forced into a marriage at age 14. But I didn't know the groom, and I didn't want to get married. When I started walking down the aisle, I suddenly wanted to be married. And my feelings kept going back and forth. Then I got really confused, and suddenly I saw the groom and he was this random kid I sometimes see in the hallways at school. What the heck does this dream mean?

Example: What does my dream mean?
Okay so my dream was that I was in my house and it was Saturday. (tomorrow) It was about 9am in my dream. My older and younger brother, my younger sister, our cousin Kaylee, and my mom were all in the living room talking when we heard a bang on the door. I checked and it was my guy-friend from school. But he was this zombie thing. He wound up getting in the house. My dream cut away from that though and showed me and my mom in her bedroom reinforcing it by making barriers and underneath places. It then cut to where the same people from the beginning + my grandma were driving my older brothers truck, but for some reason it had back seats (it usually doesn't) and we were driving to go get some supplies. We drove a little bit, and I asked if I could go home afterwards and move my belongings into our shelter and my mom said yes. A little bit later we came across this traffic jam with bloody dogs in the middle of the road. We turned to get away, but the zombie dogs were REALLY big and started to chase us. We wound up getting abandoned with the dogs on our tail and my mom decided to make the most of it by playing happy music. Right when the dog was about to get into the car, I woke up. After I woke up though, I felt like I was still dreaming. It was SO scary. Can someone please tell me what it means?

Example: WHAT DOES THIS DREAM MEAN?!?!?
I had this dream where it was the first day of school and i didn't bring any supplies and i was so freaked out. Then my guy friend (lets call him Nick) shows up was like "hey, don't worry, its fine". Then i started to help taking his golf clubs out of his car (in real life, he doesn't play golf or have a car) and he was smiling and stuff. Then all of a sudden i am in the school looking for my art class, but i can find it. and it was frustrating. Then i walked into this room and it had a couple couches and ottomans. My other guy friend (lets call him jim) was there and this other couple. it was dark partially because they were watching a movie. so i sat right in front of jim and he started to massage my back, which i thought was weird because he was my friend, but i let him carry on because my back was hurting. he was rubbing my shoulders and lower back. I remember my back hurting a lot. and when i woke up my back started to hurt.
