Several times now I have been thinking about a belief of mine about dreams, then that night I have a dream that shows me I'm wrong!

I believed that colours in dreams are faded, I had a dream about bright yellow paint on a wall. So dream colours can be very bright.

I was reading pasQuale's DJ about her conversations with DCs. I thought I don't have many conversations in dreams. That night I dreamt I talked to several people about their life, their philosophies and their dreams.

I believed that are not many people/DCs in my dreams, and that I could use this as a DS. That night I dreamt I was in a courtroom with over 200 DCs!

Has dreaming changed your beliefs about dreams?

One thing I learned about dreams, but then I forgot, and now I have learned again:

Dreams can refer to events from other dreams from same night, same week, or months apart.

I had one very interesting complicated dream. I woke up and wrote it down. Then I had 2 different dreams where I was discussing the meaning of the dream with different people.

I had one dream where I caught a bicycle thief, and made him tell me where his boss was. Several nights later I had a dream where I was telling a story about almost going to jail for beating up a thief.

It was very interesting to me that a dream can refer to events in another dream as if they are real. (I guess I believed that dreams would only refer to events from real life - WRONG!)

I think dreams can teach a lot of things. And yes, I think dreams can even teach us about dreams and how we dream. I often do problem-solving in my dreams. I find my dreams often present me with at least a few solutions to the problem.

bye Lexa & Sepultra
Please share what dreams have taught you about dreams.

Last night I learned about how dreams trick me

When I have long dreams I remember something, then I remember what happened before that, then before that, and so. But sometimes parts of the dream don't seem to fit in.

Last night I had a long dream, but I could remember when the odd parts happened. It seems like they happen to justify or distract from something in the dream that is getting my attention.

For example, I was having a long dream about walking with my boss. I noticed that he was wearing cut-off jean shorts. (Very unlikely). I start to wonder why is he wearing shorts? Now a DC appears to explain to me about how my boss went running with another person.
Then I notice that there is some dirt on my boss's face. Then there is a dream segment about a DC who drinks too much and falls down.

Normally I would remember a dream about walking with my boss, and I would remember the episode about drinking and wonder where did it fit in?

In this dream it appears to distract me from the dirt on my boss's face.

So I now think some dream segments exist to explain or distract from something that happened just before that segment.

How did you come to think dreams had faded colours? I would say that the most vivid colours I've ever seen were in dreams!

Before that dream, I kept remembering dreams that were not very colourful. I still have quite a few dreams that seem faded. But I also now have dreams with vivid colours.

I would like a dream with the MOST vivid colours! smile

Yeah I have had some dreams that were faded too.
The most vivid colours I've seen have been in lucid dreams for me!

Recently I have been learning about how dreams play with memories.

Some dreams use real memories of people and locations, and then you have new dream experience. (e.g. I dream of a camp and my aunt and uncle being at the camp fishing)

Some dreams have completely made up false memories - although they can seem so real they confuse you :D . (dreamt that when I was 3 I threw my shoes in the river)

Some dreams take some real memories but combine them together into composite memories. (dream discussion with Allison where she tells stories that happened to Hillary)

Generally it seems like memory in dreams is slightly defective.

Some dreams are grey and fuzzy. siiw
Some dreams look fairly realistic but are slightly blurry.
Some dreams look completely realistic. eek2
Some dreams look more beautiful than reality.grin

Rewinding or replaying
This phenomenon seems to appear only in dreams with anxiety. Part of the dream gets replayed several times. Its like part of the mind wants to retry the episode to get a better result.
