Dreaming is the most beautiful thing. Or else it’s love, we don’t really know. We don’t care about love anyway, we’re going to talk about dreams. Because dreams are wonderful. Already, they often leave us perplexed as before Inception. Then, even if it happens to us every day, there are plenty of things we don’t know about them. Fortunately, we are here to reveal them to you. Good night.
1. We would dream before we were born
According to some scientists, we were already dreaming when we were fetuses. It also appears that Jessica is cheating on Ryan with Brandon, which is kind of tricky because everyone knows Sheila secretly loves Jason. Scientists are on the question.
2. We always dream of faces we have seen before.
The brain does not invent faces. But he retains a lot. So if you feel like you’ve never seen the charming young lady who haunts your nights, think again! You have surely met her in the street, in a bar, in kindergarten or in a closet. The woman of your dreams really does exist.
3. You can practice lucid dreaming
Lucid dreaming is when you know you are dreaming. So we control it and we can, like, fuck whoever we want. Except it’s not necessarily something that happens once in a while. We can provoke them, and there are plenty of exercises to do, like telling ourselves that we are dreaming before falling asleep. There. But since we’re not a dream coach, we won’t tell you more.
4. You can’t read when you’re dreaming
It is very difficult to read in a dream. The letters change places, the words have no meaning, as in Nabilla’s book. And it’s the same for the time, if you look at a clock in a dream, it’s a safe bet that it will be a bit distorted in LSD mode.
5. You can get sleep paralysis
Sleep paralysis occurs when waking up or while falling asleep. You woke up, but your brain, quiet, it’s still dreaming. So you’re paralyzed in your bed, you can’t move and you’re having creepy bogeyman type hallucinations or bullshit noises. And in some people, it happens very, very often. (And it sucks.)
6. We have several dreams per night
We only remember one, three on a good day and yet! We make up to 7 a night. In total, during our lifetime, we have about 100,000 dreams. Which still makes a good package.
7. Men’s dreams feature more men than women’s dreams
On average, most characters encountered in gentlemen’s dreams are other gentlemen. For their part, the ladies would dream of as many men as of women. We can’t conclude much from it, but it’s always interesting to say between the cheese and the dessert.
8. Some people dream in black and white.
12% of the population to be exact. Confusing information for fans of Peter Pan. Since dreaming your life in color is the secret to happiness, does that mean black and white dreamers are unhappy? Did Disney lie to us? Never trust a beardless man in a tight green suit.
9. Waking up would allow you to remember your dreams
In a study, it was noted that those who remember their dreams the most have greater brain activity during their sleep and wake up more often than those who do not remember them. Waking up would therefore allow us to better remember our dreams. We say thank you to insomnia.
10. We all dream more or less of the same thing
Eh yes ! Did you think dreaming was kind of super personal, a moment spent between me and me during which we take advantage of the solitude of the night to find each other? How naive you are. The same themes recur in just about everyone, regardless of age, culture or gender. Nudity, flying, falling… Everyone dreams of it. Which makes sense because, in the end, we all have the same fears deep inside us.
