Here are some of the interesting facts about dreams.
- The strangers in our dreams are actually real people who have crossed our path at least once in our lifetime. Our brain simply stores their faces, and our subconscious may end up casting them in our dreams during sleep.
- It is thought, and documented in some case studies, that 10% to almost 13% have precognitive dreams (dreams of events that have yet to happen, but happen in the future).
- Depression can cause you to dream up to three to four times more than normal.
- Alien abduction stories are probably attributed to sleep paralysis, a condition where you wake up, dream-hallucinate that someone is in your room, and you can’t move.
- Babies can dream from day one (and possibly even before birth).
- People who stop smoking after having been long time smokers, have reported much more vivid dreams than those who don’t smoke.
- 5 minutes after waking up 50% of a dream is forgotten and after 10 minutes 90% of the dream is forgotten.
- People who are blind too dream. Instead of dreaming visually, they dream with their senses of smell, sound, touch, and also emotion.
- An average human being spends 6 whole years of his/her life dreaming.
- There is not one person who doesn’t dream, except those who have psychological disorders. If you think you don’t dream, it’s just that you’re forgetting your dreams.
- It’s not only you who dreams, animals dream too just like this leopard lost in his dream world after eating lunch. The best example is a dog; you will often see them twitching their paws as if they are running in their dreams.
