Dreaming is one of the most mysterious and interesting Experience of our lives.The scientific study of dreams is called Oneirology.In most of the history,It really didn’t exist…Simply because you can’t hold a dream,you can’t taste it,neither see other people’s dream….During the Roman era,Dreams were even submitted to the roman senate because they were thought to be messages from gods.

…Moreover Many Researchers and Artists have received their Ideas through dreams,The Interesting point here is that What they dreamt of ..Was it the Future of themselves they saw in their dreams,Or was it their subconscious playing with the algorithms they studied before sleeping and finding their solution ?

Well,Thanks to Edison’s Dream…We still don’t rely on Moonlight.

So, Lets Decode The  15 MOST AWESOME FACTS about DREAMS you probably DON’T KNOW

  • You Forget 95% of your dreams within 10 minutes of having them

Okay…You probably dreamt about very interesting things Yesterday Night….But Do You Remember it ?


…The Answer to that question is probably No,Unless you stood up in the middle of your dream and wrote it down.The reason we forget our dreams is Simple,Our Sub-conscious mind plays the main role of playing the Dream-Tape and the Part of the brain which remembers the activities we do during the day time is Switched off during the Sleep.

…As a Matter of fact,No one still knows Why we evolved to forget our dreams.

  • In Our Dreams,We only See faces that our Sub-conscious Knows 

    In Our DREAMS,We only SEE faces that our Sub-conscious KNOWS

I used the term “Sub Conscious” because,Whatever you see isn’t stored directly into the Hard-Drive of your brain which you can Recall…Sub-Conscious Mind can be portrayed as a Hidden Hard Drive of your brain which can only be accessed during Dream time.Some people you saw on your way to the office,or the Vegetable Vendor,you probably don’t remember their faces…But Believe me,You sub-conscious does.

Abandonment,Anger and most common of all “Anxiety“.The theory goes like this.Back when we were Early humans especially,We had no idea what kind of threats we might encounter during the day.So …To prepare us ,Brain would Simulate Anxieties while we slept,To make us better prepared for that feeling in the real world.So,People with terrifying dreams were better at dealing with Anxiety in the real world and Even had Stronger genes.
