why do we dream


capital letters = link


Start page


dreams are, most of the time, your brain ordering the experiences of the day before the dream


the quality/content of a dream is determined by the Pde's being in or out of accord with the nature of Love/life

(an ever-increasing amount in the quantity and quality of life)


think of dreams as your mind/soul digesting the pde's in the same way we think of The digestive system digesting food


what's best for the mind/soul is not an open question

(see Right and wrong)


what's good or bad for the physiology is not an open question


if we eat food that has Salmonella bacteria we become ill


view dreams as the subconscious "digesting" the Pde's


enjoyable dreams means "quality food"

 

bad dreams mean the pde's were incompatible with Love/life and can be thought of as being bad food for the soul


the idea that there is a mental faculty which produces dreams is being explored


dreams are not manufactured exclusively by the person themselves


exposure to death-outcome realities


scenes of violence, explosions etc. can/do affect the person and it comes through in the quality of the dream which in turn affects the personality (see 07062009 and 01082014)


the more sensitive a mind is the more it will be affected by events and experiences which are contrary to love/life


the most dreadful emotional experience this person had was when he was six years old and his parents argued in front of him


the memory of the arguing and the nightmare is still clear


it was of two round objects, planet-sized, slowly moving towards each


the closer they got to each other the greater the combined mass became


the mass was palpable


a sense of fear gripped me and the fear kept growing as the balls moved towards each other


a mind-changing or physical reaction was about to happen


i began to cry out  for help and woke or was woken, drenched to the bone in sweat, with my mother comforting me and my father looking on concerned


and that's just from two people arguing !


the amercan population are bombarded, through the media, especially films, with violence and the kids don't stand a chance


violent video games are a big industry, not unlike the military-industrial complex


an american youngster is under-privileged if he hasn't got the latest killing-game video


it's no wonder that societies which don't recognise just how delicate young minds are, or do and deliberately bombard their populations with violent content to cause emotional flaws in youngsters, cause so many problems


and americans are bewildered and wonder why they have so many misfits


equally, enjoyable dreams can be the result of the influences other people


history

14112015


things have taken a new turn


the conscious and subconscious are going to be re-named and viewed differently


in the same way we regard the mind and the body as two distinct, albeit, interdependent aspects of the same entity


there wouldn't be one without the other, and more importantly, the mind came first


no eyes, hands, feet sleeping etc. in Heaven


so when we take away everything, our  Corporeal self, what we are left with is  You


previous


dreams are the brain ordering the experiences of the Time-Conscious experiences before going to sleep


the Digestive system sorts out the food we eat


if we think life-enhancing thoughts and do life-enhancing deeds then dreams will have an enjoyable/desirable content


when we choose one food instead of another, one will be of greater benefit to the body than the other


if we think and do things which reduce the quantity and quality of life for others or self, dreams will not have as much enjoyment or desirable content

to date our Evolution has taken more than three thousand million years to go from a one-cell organism to a man-shaped being made up of thirty-seven trillion, thirty-seven raised to the twelfth Power

(37 ^12) cells


it is reasonable to conclude that the digestive system, along with the rest of the other parts of our body, is also constantly changing


and surely we recognise that the brain too is nowhere near its fully developed state


consideration


that part of the brain where the content of the dream is generated may be the soul or the essence of self


what supports this idea is the totally unrestricted content of dreams which is akin to free-will


to this consideration we can consider there is a bent or leaning or bias or inclination to expand in accordance with infinite expansion

(infinite expansion new page)


experiment


the gratifying feelings in this dream, 13112015, weren't as great as the feelings that were felt while watching the film


but then again there are plenty of instances where the content of the dream was greater than the conscious experiences on which the dream was based


so to determine with greater accuracy which of the two possibilities is closer to the truth, whether the dreamer in us is more real than the conscious self or if the dreamer in us is a barometer of our conscious selves, a little experimentation can be tried


for a set period of not less than five days a wholly "others are more important than self" attitude be adopted and, without spending less than the World wage on yourself, follow it through in deeds


  the experiment is trying to establish if our dreaming self can be more enjoyable than our Time-Conscious

selves
