Answer in Psychology for Sleep/Dreams #191933
What are Dreams?
Where do dreams come from?
Why do we dream?
Our minds construct stories, pictures, and sensations in our dreams while we sleep. They are frequently based on our own experiences and can be incredibly vivid and lifelike. Dreams may also imitate waking life. They can even be bizarre at times. Dreams are often the product of our own imaginations. Horror movies, spending the whole day desiring or thinking about something, or being in desperate need or trouble can all cause one to dream. God will give you dreams. These dreams seem to provide us with guidance or understanding. Dreams may originate in the demonic realm. To create a memory, each person has their own dream. Dreaming has been linked to memory consolidation, suggesting that it can serve an essential cognitive role in memory consolidation and knowledge retrieval. The ability to communicate with and rehearse feelings in various imaginary ways can be part of the brain’s system for manipulating emotions while processing emotion. Dreaming could be the brain’s way of “straightening up,” clearing away partial, incorrect, or needless details through mental housekeeping cycles. Dream material may be a skewed instant replay of current events that is reviewed and analyzed. Dreaming is a by-product of sleep that has no basic function or significance.
