Hmm the fifth thing says everyone's dreams used to be in black & white because of B&W television... Enough B&W TV watching to override reality??

The last one is definitely true. I had a wet dream the other day in which I got off in less time and with less stimulation that it would take me to get of in real life. Of course usually I end up almost getting laid and then someone or something gets in my way.

I don't know why, but there is one dream I remember quite well from when I was around 7 or 8 years old:
I was in a ranch style home with impossibly white walls, and a shag carpet. And I had this bag, that whenever I thought of an amount of money, it appeared in the bag. I also remember wishing the house was made out of money... Weird, huh?

I have had a reoccuring dream a few times over the past 10 years. Its always a different dream but with the same plot/scenes. Basically I have this tricked out UFO that I found and it drives like a ferrari. I am usually half coherent during these dreams and I can do whatever I want. One time I flew to the moon then came back down to my hometown and picked up a bunch of friends and we spent the whole night gallavanting in the ferrari spaceship....I never remember all of the dream but I always remember it enough that I get excited to have had the dream again. Sometimes I can even call this dream sequence forth on will. Though it doesn't seem to last as long and its not as vivid.

I have awesome dreams, but forget them pretty quick. If I can write them down right after I wake up I can use that as a prompt to remember more...

Dreaming is awesome.

I just hate having dreams within dreams. Like I'll wake up from a dream, but I'm still in a dream and I won't realize it right away.

I once had a dream that I had overslept and was late for work. I was stressed and annoyed as I rushed to try to get in as soon as possible. Then I woke for real only to find I really was late and I had to go though the whole thing again.

I remember a dream where I was walking outside of an apartment that I assume was mine holding a basket of laundry, while casually talking with my father (who I am currently at ends with). I stopped and looked forward into the distance and saw a bomb falling to the earth a few miles out. The bomb broke apart into smaller bombs in a perfect circle formation and struck the ground, exploding. The explosion rocked the earth, and threw me off my feet, as I put my hands up in an automatic yet futile defense against the blast, I felt the intense heat and heard people's screams ringing in my ears right before I woke up.

The dream was so vivid, I pray that it is not future sight.

The 'Dream Paralysis' thing is true and it can be scary if you wake up yet still can't move. However, If you know what to do, It can be a gateway to lucid dreaming (dream control).

Apparently we're all doing the wrong thing by getting partners. We should all just sleep instead.

"I frequently dream about strange colours and lights in the night sky. It's pretty, but kinda creepy."

Those aren't dreams. Those are aliens. You're one invasion away from being Randy Quaid in Independence Day.

I'd like to know how they could possibly know number 4. I don't believe they could. I certainly often dream about people that I don't remember having ever seen before, and there is no way that some dream expert could prove that I've seen that person before.
There is also no proof for dreams being symbolic of anything.
Four to seven dreams per night? Now they're just making stuff up.

I did appreciate the pictures though.

Wait Wait Wait a minute here...you say "Within 5 minutes of waking half of your dream is forgotten. Within 10, 90% is gone." But then there is all this information about what happens in dreams? What do they do, sit next to people all night then grill them the minute they wake up?

Also, Number 14 just caused me to completely doubt the entire story.

I am a 100% believer in precognitive dreams. Interpreting the dream is the difficult part.

I think #4 is bull. I think sometimes our brains put different faces we've seen together in different ways to create new faces.

I had sleep paralysis last night because I was reading a lot about it right before I went to sleep, good thing I had just learnt hot to snap out of it so that I wouldn't try to move and see that I really cant instead of saying I cant witch makes my body think I'm kinda lying to myself or bluffing so that my brain wouldn't go on panic mode causing me to have hallucinations of the scariest things I'v ever imagined and I closed my eyes to not see anything including possible hallucinations and I wiggled my toes and fingers ( the only part of your body that you can sometimes move) and fell back asleep. That or I had a dream that I was having sleep paralysis...

weirdest dream i've ever had- me, ice cube, and cris collinsworth were supposed to help these old ladies walk up a big hill on my college campus, except the ladies were dead, like walking skeletons, dressed in floral print dresses and with curly white hair. i was the only one who seemed weirded out by this so i went along with it. about halfway up the hill, ice cube decides his woman isn't going fast enough so he pushes her and she breaks in half. her skeleton guts spill on the ground, and ice cube takes a handful and eats it and tells me it tastes like spaghetti. cris collinsworth is standing there smiling, i'm trippin out cause ice cube just killed this old woman, then i wake up...

interpret that

Loxen, dreaming while not in REM sleep is completely possible. In fact, when I was writing a research essay about dreaming, I came across a study which showed that people awakened in NREM (non-REM) sleep often remembered thinking, even if they weren't visually dreaming. And it has been shown dreaming can occur in NREM sleep.

I think the difference is that REM sleep is usually more vivid and emotional.

And I've experienced dreaming right after sleeping too. Once I even began dreaming before my body became paralyzed, and reached out for a bar I saw, only to have my real arm extend outward to nothing!

I dream before fully falling asleep too Loxen, apparently it's a sign of a sleeping disorder...but having done it all my life and knowing many people who experience it as well, I'm not particularly concerned.
