Some Dream Tidbit

Posted By admin on June 22nd, 2009

People have always been fascinated with dreams.  In fact during the Roman Era, dreams of the senators were submitted on to the senate for interpretation!  Some people say that dreams are our connection to the other side.  Even popular psychologists like Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung are convinced that dreams are interesting and are a road map as to how our psyche works.  Dreams are interesting indeed.  So here are a few fun and interesting dream tidbits that you may find useful.

1.    Everybody dreams!  Even if you do not remember the dream when you wake up.  A lack of dreams can be a problem since it may signal a protein deficiency or a personality disorder.
2.    Statistics show that 1/3 of your life is spent sleeping and in an average lifetime, your dreams will total to 6 years when added together!  This means that you will spend 2100 days in another dimension or realm.
3.    In a night, we dream for an average of up to 2 hours with 4-7 different dreams.
4.    Even blind people dream.  Whether or not they actually see something in their dreams are determined whether thy were born blind or became blind later in life.  However, blind people can dream about sensation, sounds and even smell as dreams constitutes not only the vision.
5.    Studies have shown that our brain waves are more active during REM sleep than when we are awake.  People who wake up suddenly during a REM sleep tend to recall their dreams more vividly than those who sleep through the night.
6.    50% of dreams are lost after 5 minutes of waking up and 90% after 10 minutes, which is probably why most of us forget our dreams right away.
7.    Men tend to dream about other men most of the time while women dream about other women and men equally.
8.    Research has shown that most men experience erections during their sleep while women also show an increase in blood flow to the vagina, whether dreams are erotic or not.  This means that “wet dreams” may not be directly related to overly sexual content.
9.    Toddlers do not dream about themselves.  They start appearing in their dreams at about 3-4 years old.  Nightmares also occur more frequently during childhood, usually at around 3 years old till 8.
10.    Smokers who are quitting tend to have more intense and vivid dreams.  And people do not dream while they snore.
