Discussion on Dreaming

April 28, 2014, Monday
Discussion about “Dreams”
“Is dreaming purely scientific or is at a mix of science and existentialism?”

  • Dreaming is a science because it is a part of psychology. It deals with how the mind operates unconsciously while a person is dreaming.
  •  It is a science because it also involves the scientific process.
  • Dreaming is a science because it involves the study of brain activities and body movement whilst in deep sleep.
  • It is not purely science because as a person dreams, logic is turned off.
  •  It is somewhat existential because creativity and imagination are some key factors involved in the randomly manifested dreams.
  • There are no laws to explain truly the concept of dreaming because it is not fully studied to this day. The measures are somewhat arbitrary.
  •  Science explains how the dreams happen or how it works, and existential because the dreams are based on personal experiences, emotions, imaginations, realities and memories.  
  •  Sleep walking and paralysis experiences.
  •  Dreams sometimes give meaning to a certain aspect of your life.
  •  Lucid dreaming is when a person is aware that one is dreaming.
  • People have their own dreams. If somewhat similar to others’ dreams, they manipulate based on their own persona or experiences.
  • “If blind people dream, can they see?”
  • Dreams are deciphered based on personal and subjective interpretations.
  • Dreams are hard to study because people can’t see each other’s dreams.
  •  It is a science because the study involves experimentations, observations and patterns.
  • Dreams further demonstrate the limitless potential and ability of the brain.
  • The sleeping process: Light sleeping, deep sleeping, REM sleeping
  • Not all dreams are universal but subjective.
  • Dreams are amazing: signs of a future love partner, shared dreams, dream within    a dream.
  • Reality influences your dreams.
