False Awakening Dreams


http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/02/false-awakening-dreams/

I often have this kind of dream.  Its like waking up several times before actually waking up.  I would dream like I got up, took a shower, drank coffee and got on about my daily tasks and then, I find out that I’m still asleep and go through the motions again.  I get several cycles before I find that I’m really awake.  There were times when everything felt so real I had to pinch myself.

These are false awakening dreams and are also called double dreams.  Psychologist find that this kind of dream happens because of the inability of the mind to sometimes distinguish dreams and reality.  This is because our brain produces a “stimulated reality” from time to time.  Proponents of this finding suggest that our reality in fact begins with this “stimulated reality”.
