Dreams seem to be about a few fundamental themesonly:
Family heirarcheal issues
Sexual dynamics and status
Food; gluttony and\ or famine
Abstract imagery (filler material, essentially)
* A means for revelation from God
It goes without saying, dreaming, IMO, is simply the brains mechanism to process unresolved data. It is sort of a "defrag" for the mind: the ordering of the various, seemingly random pieces we absorb on a daily basis. It is quite amazing, that is, the Universe's most complex, organic computer (and ever-evolving!) :cheesy:
I took a psych course a very long time ago where the professor was saying that we dream many, many different times every night, with each dream only lasting a couple of minutes, and we only remember the dreams that are significant to us.
I dream in color most of the time (well, at least sections of many dreams are higlighted fully in color. My girlfriend also dreams in color) There must be a valid reason why researchers say we "only" dream in black-and-white-- but, no, it not true en total. I do not think color dreaming -vs- black-and-white is significant either way one looks at it or "dreams" of it.
This morning (I only got about 2.5 hours sleep) I dreamt of coding. It went like this, panicked:
"Where is the '}', where is the closing '}'? Now, where is that 'if-- where is the damned 'if' !?."
Instead of on a comp screen, my compiler was displaying on a newspaper, and as I flipped each page I could view each cpp, header, etc. I never found the "}" or the damned "if". :rolleyes:
I dont remember my dream at all, but I feel good, i dont know why even though i dont remember them, after i wake up. The dreams i remember are those i see in dawn and when i am near the climax of the dream, my father, mother or alarm wakes me up and it really makes me sad.
He must get something like mine, something really cool:mrgreen:....although i'll change my avatar soon.
From where u got this...
I had an avatar for a couple hours that looked like a very evil dragon -- but I don't want to be known as someone who is evil, so looked for something a lot more suitable for this forum. After searching the web for a couple hours I decided BamBam seemed appropriate. He doesn't look like a dragon, thats true, but he has one as a pet:)
