Most Interesting Facts About Dreams That Will Give You Goosebumps...👍


1. Dream tenure

An average human being spends 6 whole years of his/her life dreaming.

2. Memory limit

There's a time limit to how much you can remember about your dream. Only within five minutes since you are up from your sleep, an average person's dream is forgotten and in just 10 minutes, 90 percent of the dream is gone with the wind. However, if awakened at the REM (rapid eye movement sleep) stage, that person is more likely to remember the dream.

3. Eyes don't matter

Blind people can dream. People who became blind after birth can see images in their dreams and those who were born blind dream as vividly, however, instead of seeing images, they use their other senses such as smell, sound, touch etc. to dream.

4. Dream Master

The good part is that you can often control your dreams. You can manipulate, twist and turn the beginning and the ending of your dreams like it's a movie being shot in front of you. It is called the "Lucid dreaming" (one is aware that he/she is dreaming) phase.

5. Entry level

Toddlers don't star in their own dreams till they are about 3-4 years old.

6. Dreams are for everyone

There is not one person who doesn't dream, except those who have psychological disorders. If you think you don't dream, it's just that you're forgetting your dreams.

7. Familiarity

You might not remember the person in your dream. However, a person only dreams of people he/she has encountered in life but it's impossible to keep track of thousands of faces that you come across each day.

8. Colour no bar
Not everyone dreams in colour and not everyone dreams in black and white. If a person grew up watching black and white television, he/she is more likely to dream in black and white. In a survey, it was revealed that 12% of sighted people ONLY dreamt in black and white and rest of the sample dreamt exclusively in colour. The number has gone down. Today, only 4.4% under-25-year olds dream in black and white, the change is being based (by scientists) upon the transformation from black and white television to colour media.

9. Symbol
You sometimes have the strangest of dreams - some scary, some worrisome and the rest absolutely angelic. Remember, these are all symbols for something or the other. There's nothing strange about these dreams because they are only talking in a symbolic language like poems.

10. Universal

It's not only you who dreams, animals dream too just like this leopard lost in his dreamworld after eating lunch. The best example is a dog, you will often see them twitching their paws as if they are running in their dreams.

11. Sleep paralysis

During the REM stage of your sleep, the body is paralysed through a mechanism that keeps your body from moving physically because of the dream. It is also possible for this mechanism to occur during, before and after your sleep when your brain is fully awakened. That is the mystery behind why you can't move so many times AFTER you're up and awake sometimes.

12. Dream incorporation

It's because of this behaviour of dreams that compels us to wake up in the middle of the night to eat or drink because it's impossible for you to sleep in peace if you don't wake up and finish that task.

13. Cause for psychosis

It is very important for you to keep sleeping and dreaming when you're at the REM stage of your sleep. That keeps you healthy. If you're woken up for some reason or the other right at the start of your REM stage, you may fall prey to psychotic disorders such as hallucination, irritation etc.

14. Nightmares

Anxiety is the most common emotion that is experienced in dreams. Not only that, negative emotions are much more likely to occur than positive emotions in your dreams. So don't worry, you are not the only one getting nightmares frequently.

15. Diversity

On an average, you can dream for about one to two hours every night and you can have four to seven different dreams in one night...
