Dream is the story that a person "watches" or appears to take part during sleep.
Dream events are imaginary, but they are related to real experiences in the
dreamer's life. They seem real to the dreamer while they are taking place. There
are many types of dreams. Some are pleasant, others are annoying, and still
others are frightening.
Everyone dreams, but some people never recall dreaming. Others remember
only a little about a dream they had just before awakening and nothing about
earlier dreams. No one recalls every dream and, in general, dreams are very
easily forgotten.
Many experts who study dreams also feel that they are related to deep whishes
and fears of the dreamer, and several theories explaining the meaning of dreams
have been developed. Freud suggested that dreams are fulfillments of wishes,
usually in disguised form. Some scientists have suggested that biological
discoveries about dreams have made psychological theories of dreaming, such as
feud's, unnecessary or false. These scientists argue that a dream is a meaningless
response of the cerebral cortex to random stimulation from the brain stem.
The biology involved does not make dreams meaningless any more than it
makes waking thought meaningless. Most psychologists and psychiatrist still
consider dreams psychologically meaningful.
