Dreams are...

We all dream...

... and many of us ask themselves what could be the meaning of our nocturnal adventures and pictures, this other life which seems to be a parallel world to our daily routine? Is it a mirror of ourselves or a conglomerateof non significant neuron firings? Are they just emerging image streams without logic, senseless, without any connections? Or are they significant keys to open questions, creative processes that can help solve problems? Do we sleep in order to dream or do we dream in order to sleep? Is the dream a “mental digestion” or are we even able to travel to foreign worlds or into the future, able to contact our world telepathically? Do dreams help us cope with our everyday lives or do these images only turn into stories created out of pale memories and hunches upon awaking? A dream is a way of thinking that usually occurs during sleep and which possesses certain characteristics. The development or quality of these characteristics significantly depends on the sleep phase during which the thinking process takes place. Phenomenologically, the dream and the reality while we are awake are similar to each other, which means that all five senses are used. However, they differ in the fact that the body of a dreamer is in a deep state of relaxation (sleep), which is part of the dreamer’s transphenomenal reality (Paul THOLEY).

...the dream is a dream is a dream...

The dream is a kind of parallel world in which our realities reflect, portray and communicate.
