    Dreams... What the heck?

    I've always been interested in dreams, and science, so... the science of dreams.

    There is a long history of dream theory, ranging from "messages from the gods" to "meaningless noise."

    I'm pretty sure, personally, that they serve a purpose, but the research goes on.

    Here's an article that seems to support my position:

    Our dreams have many purposes, changing across the lifespan

    ...Older adults tend to dream more about creative works, legacies and enduring concerns, while the dreams of dying people are filled with numbers of supernatural agents, other-worldly settings and images of reunions with a loved one who has died. Dreams that transport the child into the social world of his caretakers during early life gently escort the dreamer into the arms of his loved ones when life is nearing an end. Dreams accompany us literally from the cradle to the grave.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Dream on mystery boy..I do agree however,my dreams seem to have an all star team of writers with a background of strange humor!!
    I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up.
    Mark Twain

    Somewhat like Hunter S. Thompson who was called a gonzo Journalist,I consider myself to be something of a gonzo Pagan.

    The wizard be in: But be warned if you poke him to much,the standard wand of anal probing +10 may be utilized.

    It is interesting that humans seem to believe that they are the crown of creation,until nature drops a house on them....Just saying....

    I have decided that I no longer want to be an adult... If anyone needs me, I'll be in my blanket fort, coloring.

    Trust lost,is trust never regained.

    Re: Dreams... What the heck?

    Since I became ill, I tend to have a lot of action packed dreams. In them, I do all the things - like running, climbing, swimming etc., that I could never do nowadays (and probably never did). I have great adventures. It's fantastic, and I'm not even tired when I wake up.

    I suspect I may have slipped through a portal and somehow passed into another world. At least, that's what I tell myself.

    Some dreams though are different, especially early in the morning (contact from the dead) and last thing at night (premonitions).
