Dreams have gotten undivided attention since the Mesopotamian civilization 5000 years ago because of its perplexing nature and the belief that a person’s future is depicted by his/her dreams.
Sleeping is a default state in us but there is a specific time for sleep. That is because our body will not support when our brain is awake and our body is kept awake during the day time by the secretion of chemicals such as Acetylcholine. Dreams mostly occur during the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) stage of sleep, while brain activity is at its highest, according to the American Sleep Organization. Most of dreams last for about 20 to 30 minutes and there is only a 95% chance to remember what you dreamed about which is actually healthy because you’ve had a nice sound sleep.
Dream interpretation has long been a topic of scientific, religious, philosophical and superstitious interest throughout recorded history. Sigmund Freud, the Austrian neurologist known as the father of psychoanalysis, has written an entire book about it known as “Interpretation of Dreams”.
Nevertheless, modern psychologists believe that a person’s dreams can be directly connected to that person’s life. It is upto ourselves to investigate them properly to see of they are signs of suppressed childhood memories or before-lives, subconscious thoughts or just random.
