Some Interesting facts about Dreams

Watching a dream is one of the most furtive as well as interesting experiences in our lives. During the Ancient Era some dreams were also submitted to the Roman Assembly for their study and also for the dream explanation. In those days the dreams were considered as the messages from the GOD. Dream explainers even attended military leaders in the battles and in the operations as well. But here the question arise that what we actually know about dreams. So for this reason here we are discussing some interesting facts about dreams.

1.You Forget 90% of Your Dreams

Within only five minutes of waking half of your dream is forgotten and within ten minutes 90 % of your dream is gone.

2.Blind People also Dream

All those people who became blind after their birth can see the images in their dreams however the people who are born blind do not watch out any images, though have dreams equally intense connecting their other senses of sound, smell, touch and the emotion as well.

3.Everybody Dreams

Every person sees dreams. If you think that you are not dreaming then you just forget your dreams.

4.In Our Dreams We just watch out Faces That We already Know

Our mind is not inventing looks. In our dreams we just see the faces of real people that we have seen during our life however might not know or remember. All of us have seen hundreds of thousands of faces all over our lives that are why we have a boundless supply of characters for our brain to use during our dreams.

5.Not Everybody Dreams in Color

A complete 12 percent of sighted people dream completely in black and white while the other remaining people dream in full color. A research from 1915 through to the 1950’s maintained that the mainstream of dreams was in black and white, though these outcomes started to change in the 1960s. At present just 4.4% of the dreams of under 25 years old are in black and white. A latest research shows that those varying results might be connected to the switch from black-and-white film as well as Television to color media.

6.Dreams are Symbolic

If you dream regarding any specific subject it is not often that the dream is almost about that. Dreams speak in an acutely symbolic language. Whatsoever symbol your dream decides on it is most suspected to be a symbol for itself.


The most usual emotion that most of the people experienced in dreams is anxiety. Negative emotions are the more usual as compared to the positive ones.

8.You can have 4 to 7 dreams in one night.

Normally you can dream anywhere from 1 or 2 hours each night.

9.Animals Also Dream

The research has been done on a lot of various animals, and they all illustrate the same brain waves during fantasizing sleep like humans. Lookout dogs sleeping sometime, the hands move like they are running as well as they make making sounds like if they are hunting something in a dream.

10.Body Paralysis

Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep is the most common phase of sleep categorized by the fast movements of the eyes. REM sleep in mature humans normally occupies 20 to 25 percent of total sleep, approximately 90 to120 minutes of the sleep of night.

During REM sleep the body is paralyzed by a contrivance in the brain with the intention of prevent the movements which happen in the dream from instigating the physical body to move. Though, it is possible for this mechanism to be activated before, during, or after the normal sleep whereas the brain gets up.

11.Dream Incorporation

Our mind reads the external impetuses that our senses are bombed along with when we are sleeping as well as make them a portion of our dreams. It’s mean that sometimes in our dreams we hear a sound from realism as well as unite it in a way. For instance, you might be dreaming that you are in a show whereas your brother is playing a guitar when you are sleep.

12.Men and Women Dream Inversely

Men have a tendency to dream more regarding other men. Approximately 70 percent of the characters in a dream of a man are other men. Though, on the other hand, a dream of women contains almost an equal number of men as well as the women. Away from that, normally men have more destructive emotions in their dreams as compared to the female.

13.Precognitive Dreams

The outcomes on numerous researches crosswise the large population sets show that between 18 percent and 38 percent of individuals have experienced at least one precognitive dream while 70 percent people have experienced déjà vu. The percentage of the individuals that believe precognitive dreaming is possible is even higher is in between 63 to 98 percent.

14.If you are wheezing, then you cannot be dreaming.

This point is repeated around the Internet; however I am a little doubtful whether it is actually true true because I have not found any scientific proof to support this fact.
