Interesting facts about dreams

Everyone dreams, but only what we know, and not always in color 

Dreams are sequence images sounds or emotions that our brain experiences during sleep. The meaning and purpose of dreams are not fully understood or revealed, but Dreams fascinate us since we can remember and they are the subject of speculation and interest throughout the history of mankind. There is a scientific discipline studying dreams, called oneirologija. Some things you probably know about dreams and some interesting facts you might find out here.

And blind people dream
People who became blind after birth can still see the images in their dreams. People who are blind from birth do not see the images, but have dreams of living the same as far as their other senses - sound, smell, touch and emotion.

We forget 90 percent of our dreams
For 5 minutes after waking dream is forgotten half, after 10 minutes of 90 percent is forgotten. The famous poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge woke up one morning after a fantastic dream (likely opium induced) - and immediately set off on a paper describing his "vision in a dream", which became one of the most famous of English poems "Kubla Khan". But after 54 verses written interrupted by "a person from Porlock" (village in southwest England), and when he returned to writing songs, Coleridge could no longer remember his dream and so was never actually finished not, a "person from Porlock" , "the man from Porlock" or just "Porlock" has become a literary allusions to unwanted intruders. Interestingly, the Robert Louis Stevenson story about the idea of ​​Doctor Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde received while dreaming, as well as Mary Shelley in Frankenstein.

All dream
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 of a sexual nature. Men get erections and women to increase blood flow to the vagina.

Not everyone dream in color
Even 12 percent of people who are normally visible only dream in black and white. All others dream in color. Also, people often dream of things like that which are the most common - school events (anxiety before exams, dropping it), they are being chased, running slowly in place, sexual adventures, drop, delay, death of a person, teeth falling out, flying or car crash. It is unknown whether the effects of sleep related to violence or death is more emotionally charged for a person who dreams in color than one who dreams in black and white.

Dreams preventing psychosis
In a recent study on sleep, students who were awakened at the beginning of each dream, but who still slept 8 hours of sleep, all had difficulty concentrating, were irritable, hallucinating and showed signs of psychosis after only three days. When they were finally allowed REM sleep the brain is a student up for lost time greatly increasing the percentage of sleep in REM sleep.

Only dream of what we know
Our dreams are frequently full of strangers who play a role in sleep - did you know that your brain does not actually invent their faces? They are the faces of real people that you have one, but you might see somewhere in as short as you like it or register it. Wicked killer who is chasing you may have been the guy who fueled petrol in the car of your father when you were a kid. Throughout life we ​​saw hundreds of thousands of people, as they live on TV, so we have more than enough characters that we pouniti your dreams.

Dreams are not about what is in them
If you dream about a certain topic, often in a dream is not about how what you're dreaming. Dreams speak in a deeply symbolic language. The unconscious mind tries to compare your dream to something else that is similar. It's like writing a poem and saying that a group of ants like machines that never stop. But you would never compare something he refuses, for example: "That beautiful sunset was like a beautiful sunset." So no matter what your dream is a symbol chosen, it most likely is not a symbol for itself.

People who have stopped smoking have vivid dreams
People who have smoked cigarettes for a long time, then they ceased to have much more vivid dreams than they would otherwise have had. In addition, according to the Journal of Abnormal Psychology says: "Among 293 smokers who abstained from 1 to 4 weeks, 33% reported that they had at least one dream about smoking. In most dreams, subjects caught themselves smoking and felt that strong negative emotions, guilt and panic. dreams about smoking were the result of odvikivanja cigarettes, because 97% of respondents did not have while smoking, and their occurrence was significantly related to the duration of abstinence. these dreams were rated as more "real "than the usual dreams and were odvikivanja common symptom of smoking."

External influences affect our dreams
The incorporation znov dream and it is an experience that most of us had when we heard during the dream some sound from reality and register it in some way. The famous painting "Dream caused by the flight bee around the pomegranate a second before awakening" by Salvador Dali (left) describes this concept - a woman in her sleep next to me heard a buzzing bee, but it is a dream distort and exaggerate the roaring tigers. In addition, the body of a tiger body bee (yellow with black stripes) and the bayonet its stinger. Fish is the bee's eyes - because of the similarity of shell fish with bee eyes. A similar (though less external) example would be when you are physically thirsty and your mind in this sense includes your dream. And after that dream that, for example, constantly drink water, but you just can not get drunk.

Paralyzed when you sleep
Believe it or not, your body is almost completely paralyzed during hing - likely to prevent your body to make a (fake) everything that happens in a dream. During REM 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 become more or less paralyzed.

More ...
When you snore, you are dreaming.
Babies dream until the third year of life. Since then, children have many more nightmares than adults, and it lasts until the age of seven or eight years.
If you wake up from REM sleep, are much more likely you are to remember the dream more vivid way.
