There are so many theories about why we dream that it would take forever to list them all.
The one i personally take faith in is that (usually) the dream is just your minds way of dealing with the events of the day, catagorizing them, filing them away, or discarding them. However, i also believe that dreams can be prophetic, and that deja vu is the result of dreaming the current sittuation sometime in the past and not remembering it untill it happens. The two ideas seem to not agree but i believe both.

i agree the first idea, this is a sort of "defraging" your mind... mhhh, discarding experience? i don't think so, i think these only go deeper, things only hypnosis or very like experiencies can do them be remembered... i disagree the sencond, agreeing that means, for me, that future is writed somewhere :eek: and that my existence does not have sense; thing my mind :bugeye: does not accept...

agree, but there are some fields where there is not any fact, then you have to speculate and experiment if you want to go deeper knowing that "thing"

Our English teacher was saying that noone can die in their dreams. You know how you'd have a drema and just before you get killed you wake up? Well that's because no body knows what it's like after we die.
- Just thought id say
well bye !:eek:

I agree with both. I don't think they're conflicting either. Re: the first- ever notice how your first dreams tend to parallel events earlier in the day, while your last dreams, just before waking, tend to parallel events later in the day? Question- but why does there always seem to be some strange twist to the event? Why isn't the "reenactment" true to what really happened?
Re: the second - I have lots of deja vu experiences where I actually remember having dreamt about it. The reason we don't experience deja vu all the time is because our everyday decisions lead us to different points in space at a particular time. Does that make sense? Just my opinion anyway. And... I don't think the ideas conflict because I believe our brain is capable of carrying on sorting/filing tasks at the same time it experiences "travel" through space and time.

Space could be the reason but not time as there is no time in our subconsisnes only memories that are build in spaces.
