A Reflection Into The World Of Dreams: Mind Matters.
All of us dream…some of us even daydream.What are these Dreams about? Why those dreams? What do people dream about? Would it be a great discovery if someone could decode the Dream Mechanism?Do dreams really have any limits?
Dreams are creatures of the subconscious mind that takes you over when you let your conscious rest. There are always two aspects of a person….one who is, his real self and the other one who he wants to be, his dreamy self. And very rarely do these two very similar individuals have similar traits and do similar actions.
Some of these dreams are fascinating and you wish if it were real. Some of them are horrible…and some are just that they give you a feeling that you haven’t slept at all. Some reports claimed that an average person has around 5 dreams per night. Adding on these statistical averages, everyone’s got a collection of around 2000 dreams per year! But how many do you remember. None! May be one! May be some of those recurring ones.
I have had always this sense of complexity about these simple matters about dreams. You sleep when you are tired and you see things….stuffs which you either wanted or stuffs which are haunted or just stuffs that featured first time on your dreams. So the question is why do we dream or what’s the Dream Mechanism. Scientists and Psychologists around the world have answered that or rather tried to answer that. Nolan’s made movies on that. But nothing makes it clear as in the interpretation of dreams is in itself a fuzzy notion of self belief.
But, still at the end of the day you are left with yourself to figure what were your dreams and what do they signify. Is there some hidden messages from the subconscious creatures within your mind. If that is what it seems to be can I decide what to dream tonight or rather what not to dream tonight….I guess not. They say if you think of something intensely the whole day that feeling would return in your dreams too. Quite possible. But it happens the other way too…something which I may never think of, comes as my dream every now and then. I’m not even sure that good mood would ensure good dreams or bad days are by default meant for nightmares.
Theories suggest that our brain tends to flush out emotional outbursts by creating a dream of a scenario that parallels real life experience-actually a metaphor. If brain does such a thing why doesn’t it controls it the way it controls other actions of the body. Then why do we forget our dreams and that too so exponentially on waking up. Isn’t it then brain’s way of blocking out wishes or longings that we may not be able to handle. So if there’s control over how to do then why not what to do?
There would always be some dreamy questions which would continue to haunt my intellect. Some people claim that they have dreamless nights. Is it true….they don’t have dreams or is it that they don’t remember even 0.1 % of it? Do we dream in colours or in black & white? Don’t know because mostly dreams are person specific or situational rather than being static and detailed about the surroundings. Sometimes I feel stoned as if I want to shout out but the voice is missing no matter how hard I try. When I reach the threshold I usually wake up shouting…Why? Why can’t I shout in my dreams? You always think of writing up that dream but that in itself is in a dream and when you wake up, you would take some seconds to realise that it was a dream. I have tried sometimes to write down my dreams but when awake the content seems too random , not at all what it seemed to be in that world of dreams. The World of Dreams….where everyone seems to be going but no one can tell you the way….
