REALITY OF DREAMS
- Chintan Srivastava
The word DREAM always fascinates us. From many years, people have been making wild guesses & researchers have been trying to find out the main cause of dreams. Majority of the researchers believe that sleep throws out the negative emotions out of your mind in the form of dreams. I think they are more or less correct, don't you feel relaxed after a nice & sound sleep??? If you are having a problem or dilemma, you will definitely feel better after a sleep, at least I do!!
Most of the times, we see many unusual things in our dreams & sometimes beneficial also, like a solution or method to solve a problem or to do something. Many even see or remember a forgotten name or thing. But the question arises why in dreams???
I believe that while we sleep, the thoughts messed up in our mind are reorganized & the brain might come up with something we wouldn't think when we are awake because it is much more calm & relaxed when we sleep.
The main cause of dreams is still not known. According to my observation, the thing, which we think about for a very short time during the day, comes as dream when we sleep. Many a times it also happens that two thoughts are mixed up & are seen as dreams (cut- paste). However, my observations may not be having a scientific reason & something similar is not proved yet. It must have happened to almost all of us that we would have seen an incident in our dream and the next day or after sometime, BINGO..... It happens!!!!! But again, it doesn't have any scientific proof, it is just considered as a coincidence.
A good friend and a PhD student at the National Brain Research Center Miss Chinmoyee Maharana says "The physical activity of our body is almost nil when we sleep, but at that time also, the brain is working. So it can think about other things instead of giving orders to walk, talk etc. The full use is for the thoughts going on in our brain".
Well, it is hard to say why & how we have dreams & what is their significance. We can just wait for (or make a) scientific discovery to be sure. Till then DREAM BIG!!
