Having several hypotheses and concepts, dream has been a bewildering, eye-opening, sometimes a nightmarish experience and of course one of the most mysterious argument for the entire world. Moving on with its clarification, an Austrian psychiatrist, Sigmund Freud suggested that dream is simply a reflection of our unconscious desires. For the people who have a great aptitude for scientific quest, dream is simply a result of random electrical activity in human body but for a antediluvian person dream is the result when a person’s soul temporarily leaves his/her body to wonder the world.
Even though dream can sometimes be entertaining, there’s a time limit for remembering the dream. An average person’s dream is forgotten only within ten minutes however if awakened at the random eye movement sleep stage, that person is more likely to remember the dream. According to the science theory people dream due to increased pressure, anxiety, depression, lack of co-ordination, weight gain and tendency to hallucinate. The good part is that we can often control our dreams, we can manipulate, twist and turn the beginning and the ending of our dreams like it’s a movie being shot in front of you. This is called the “Lucid Dreaming” phase.
During the Roman Era, people had to tell their dream to the Roman Senate for dream analysis and interpretation. Freud thought dreams were away for people to satisfy urges and desires that were unaccepted to society. Dreams are important aspect for living being and are vulnerable to disruption from problems with mental and physical health. More broadly, dreams provide us with insight about what’s preoccupying us, troubling us, engaging our thoughts and emotions.
You may be wondering about altering your dreams. After a huge and along time research, it has been evident that one type of drug commonly used to treat depression may alter your dreams. Drug and alcohol consumption has a huge role to alter the dreams. Altered dreaming is also linked to degenerative neurological conditions, including Parkinson’s disease and some form of dementia. Theirs is not even a single person who doesn’t dream, except those who have psychological disorders. Recent research examined the role of dreams in problem-solving, using a group of lucid dreamers. They found that lucid dreamers could use dreams effectively to solve creative problems
There have been no simple answers or a single theory that explains the full role of dreaming to human life and thus it has been one of the most amusing mysteries in the world related to human body.
