10 facts + three bonus facts about what happens when you sleep.

Hello Everybody.
So I had a messed up dream
last night about donkeys
and the end of the earth.
It was weird... so I thought
I would do a dream facts
sheet to enlighten myself
as well as the community.
IO. People who become blind
after birth can see images
in their dreams. People who
are born blind do not see .
any images. but have dreams
equally vivid involving
their other senses of sound.
smell. touch and emotion.
It is hard for a seeing
person to imagine. but the
body' s need for sleep is so
strong that it is able to
handle virtually all
physical situations to make
it happen.
9. within 5 minutes of
waking. half of your dream
if forgotten. within lo,
90", is gone. The famous
poet. Samuel Taylor
Coleridge. woke one morning
having had a fantastic dream
likely opium induced) - he
put pen to paper and began
to describe his "vision in
a dream" in what has become
one of English' s most famous
poems: Kuala Khan. Part way
through (54 lines in fact)
he was interrupted by a
Person from Pollock".
Coleridge returned to his
poem but could not remember
the rest of his dream. The
poem was never completed.
In Xanadu did Kuala Khan
A stately
where Alph. the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.
Curiously, Robert Louis
Stevenson came up with the
story of Doctor Jeckyll and
hr. Hyde whilst he was
Mary Shelley' s Frankenstein
was also the brainchild of
a dream.
8. 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 is sexual in nature;
males experience erections
and females experience
increased vaginal blood
7. In a recent sleep study,
students who were awakened
at the beginning of each
dream, but still allowed
their 8 hours of sleep. all
experienced difficulty in
concentration, irritability,
hallucinations. and signs of
psychosis after only 3 days.
when finally allowed their
REM sleep the student' s
brains made up for lost time
by greatly increasing the
percentage of sleep spent in
the REM stage.
6. our dreams are frequently
full of strangers who play
out certain parts - did you
know that your mind is not
inventing those faces - they
are real faces of real e
people that you have seen I
during your life but may not
know or remember? The evil
killer in your latest dream "
may be the guy who pumped
petrol in to your Dad' s car 3'
when you were just a little
kid. we have all seen .
hundreds of thousands of " A
faces through our lives, so
we have an endless supply of
characters for our brain to
utilize during our dreams.
5. A full % of sighted
people dream exclusively in
black and white. The
remaining number dream in
full color. People also tend
to have common themes in
dreams, which are situations
relating to school, being
chased, running slowly/ in
place. sexual experiences.
falling. arriving too late.
a person now alive being
dead, teeth falling out.
flying. failing an
examination, or a car
accident. It is unknown
whether the impact of a
dream relating to violence
or death is more emotionally
charged for a person who
dreams in color than one who
dreams in black and white.
l. If you dream about some
particular subject it is not
often that the dream is
about that. Dreams speak in
a deeply symbolic language.
The unconscious mind tries
to compare your dream to
something else. which is
similar. Its like writing a
poem and saying that a group
of ants were like machines
that never stop. But you
would never compare
something to itself. for
example: "That beautiful
sunset was like a beautiful
sunset". so whatever symbol
your dream picks on it is
most unlikely to be a symbol
for itself.
3. People who have smoked
cigarettes for a long time
who stop. have reported much
more vivid dreams than they
would normally experience.
Additionally, according to
the Journal of Abnormal
Psychology: “Among 293
smokers abstinent for
between 1 and 4 weeks, 33%
reported having at least l
dream about smoking. In most
dreams, subjects caught
themselves smoking and felt
strong negative emotions. _ "rs
such as panic and guilt.
Dreams about smoking were
the result of tobacco
withdrawal. as 97% of
subjects did not have them
while smoking. and their
occurrence was significantly
related to the duration of
abstinence. They were rated
as more vivid than the usual
dreams and were as common
as most major tobacco
withdrawal symptoms."
2. This is called Dream
Incorporation and it is the
experience that most of us
have had where a sound from
reality is heard in our
dream and incorporated in
some way. A similar (though
less external) example would
be when you are physically
thirsty and your mind
incorporates that feeling in
to your dream. My own
experience of this includes
repeatedly drinking a large
glass of water in the dream
which satisfies me, only to
find the thirst returning
shortly after 7 this thirst..
drink, thirst, loop often
recurs until I wake up and
have a real drink. The famous
painting to the right (Dream
Caused by the Flight of a Bee
around a Pomegranate a Second
Before Awakening) by
Salvador Dali. depicts this
l. Believe it or not. your
body is virtually paralyzed
during your sleep - most
likely to prevent your body
from acting out aspects of
your dreams. According to
the wikipedia article on
dreaming, "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 later become
essentially paralyzed."
l. when you are snoring.
you are not dreaming.
2. Toddlers do not dream
about themselves until
around the age of 3. From
the same age. children
typically have many more
nightmares than adults do
until age I or 8.
3. If you are awakened out
of REM (Rapid Eye Movement)
sleep. you are more likely
to remember your dream in a
more vivid way than you
would if you woke from a
full night sleep. The one in thinking or next
has to do with the
end or lite a moments after.
Given that the thumbs
and people vent
more or these
epic fact lists.

Lucid dreaming- the art of being aware that you are dreaming while your dreaming thus granting the power to contoll your dreams.

Bonus: While in lucid dreamin the user can talk to their subconscious

When im trying to control my dream, my first priority is to **** a girl. (Hey, what can I say?). But it never happens. I'll be in a situation, and any thought i have of how something might go wrong, it happens. when im trying to have sex, the only fear I have at that moment is that something will happen that will prevent it from happening. I'll be in a room with a girl with the door locked and something will inevitably bust the door down and drag me away from her, just so I can't get what i want. I wish i could do anything i want in my dreams, but my mind ***** itself over; when im dreaming i feel as though im trying to beat my mind at a game or something. But the mind always wins.
idk. Does anyone else experience this? :P

P.S. One time i dreamt i was flying over a french city or something with my favorite ball which was floating (i was about 5) and then i started falling, and i woke up right before i fell.

P.P.S. One time i dreamt i was turned into the goat from jimmy neutron.

Mine differ. Sometimes in the same dream it will skip to 3rd person then to what another person can see.

Though it may seem gay, keep a dream journal. If you wake suddenly from a dream, right it down straight away. This way, over time, you will be able to remember your dreams.

Second, try to get to sleep tired. This will increase the amount of REM sleep you get, which is where dreaming occurs.

And lastly, just try and notice that you're in a dream. If you're just chillin' like a boss, and then suddenly turn into a ******* goat, think "Oh **** ******, I just turned into a goat, I must be dreaming". When you realize that, you can manipulate your dream to the way that you want.

I've been lucid dreaming for about 4 years, and It's awesome as ****. It just comes naturally when you do it for a while.

Happy dreaming bro

No prob, but if you go on /b/ and see an info thread, their's usually a lucid dreaming tutorial, which is how I learned.

And if you do it long enough, you see, feel, hear, smell, taste, and remember everything. Pro as ****
