Since the dawn of mankind, man has been searching for the
answer to just one question: Why do we dream? I believe
strongly that the reason is not clear-cut and as easy to answer
as it might seem. I think that dreams range in meaning and
When someone has a dream, there are many possible
types of dreams they could have. First of these possibilities is
for a dream that involves absolutely no meaning whatsoever.
The dream is meaningless and involves a chain or series of
events that are unrelated to one another and may be of people
or places familiar or not. These dreams are most likely created
because of the flash and mixture of chemicals that occurs
during sleep. Many times these dreams are actually so bazaar
that they have no meaning even to the dreamer. So these
dreams are mostly just passed over and ignored.
The second type of dream is one in which the dreamer
can comprehend everything that is going on but things seem to
have no meaning as before.
But in some of these dreams,
there are symbols that come into play. When you look at these
dreams sometimes they can represent real life events. Often
these are predictions about what could happen in the future or
are an interpretation of things that have passed. These, like
almost all other dreams have significance as a result of bodily
rejuvenation processes. This type of dream has a significance I
believe in helping the person have the feeling of a good sleep,
where things have, if not in some bazaar way, been resolved.
The third type of dream is one which makes great and
perfect sense to the dreamer but doesn't have any real
meaning. An example of this is dreaming that you are flying.
