    A Dream Essay

    • 1013 Words
    • 5 Pages

    What is a dream? The scientific definition of a dream is when there is a very small amount of brain activity and there is no sense of self-awareness. Most dreaming occurs in the REM (rapid eye movement) stage. This is the stage during which accelerated respiration and heart rate, muscle relaxation, and increased brain activity occurs. This stage is also called paradoxical sleep. During a dream, the dreamer experiences an incredibly lifelike ordeal, and the shutting down of the self-awareness causes them to encounter the dream in a first person point of view, generally without the knowledge of who they are and being unable to control the circumstances, and is also almost never aware that they are even dreaming. Dreams can last from five minutes…

Granted I had this dream when I was in middle school, so when names such as Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift or Braydon (my middle school crush) come up, that is why. The dream starts out and I am standing in a hotel lobby. The lobby is huge. Big enough to have a concert in, which is exactly what was happening. Taylor Swift was performing and a small crowd of about 300 people were…

Some people think dreams happen because we are recalling events that occurred earlier in the day, or maybe because we are able to have visions from the future, but do we really know their main origin?

    Dream Stereotypes

    • 3 Pages

    In the popular imagination, dreamscapes are all populated by flying people and magical nakedness, and probably art-directed by David Lynch. But according to decades of research, dreams usually centre around fairly realistic portrayals of familiar things: people, places and activities. Literally: snoresville. If this seems disappointingly banal you only have yourself to blame, since many aspects of dream content are thought to be reflections of your emotional slate in regular, awake life.…

    • 2 Pages

    Regardless of the difficulties that one encounters when aiming to develop a valid dream interpretation, Freud’s interpretations, at his time, were quite convincing due to his effort to form a scientific-like explanation for them and avoid making abstract theories. For example, in The Interpretation of Dreams (1900a), he argues that “every dream is a wish which is represented as fulfilled, that the representation acts as a disguise if the wish is a repressed one, belonging to the unconscious, and…
