Dreams are weird. They’re not meant to represent anything factual in reality and yet they hold such significant weight on our feelings and emotions.
How is it that something based on purely fiction and fantasy can play such a heavy role on our mood? The ripple effect goes on and can even affect other people around you (e.g. you killing your best friend’s girlfriend or some weird shit like that) if you told them about your dream.
The best part is, ALL OF IT ISN’T REAL! Nor does it represent our true intentions (unless of course you really wanna kill your best friend’s girlfriend) nor our desired scenarios. Yet our brain conjures the images up and forms a short clip of something totally bizarre that you’d never imagine yourself doing or would never do in real life.
It’s mind boggling to the extent that psychologists and psychiatrists interpret dreams as an indication of a subconscious desire or emotion, obviously not directly reflected by the dream itself.
Which forces you to wonder, what does a dream really mean?
