I hate waking up mid dream, especially if it is a nightmare. My mind wakes up but my body is in paralysis, I can't even move my tongue. I believe it has something to do with melatonin levels, but I can't be sure. If anyone has any idea why, please share.

>.< that would be scary.

All of the last dreams I have had were all strange in the fact that I knew I was dreaming, and that I died. The acceptance I felt in those dreams was creepy o.O

I have no idea why we have them though... Maybe it's the minds version of elevator music.

Well, to me the dreams I have are something I already experienced, learned, observed, and dealt by my five senses. They're kinda random but they're very logic.

But it would be interesting if you decided to lock yourself in a room (for several days at least) and dream something that you never experience, learn, observe, and deal before. That's where you should notice the contents of your dream.

However, there are other factors that can produce dreams like emotions and even drugs. I remembered when I was rushed to the Trauma Center as an injured victim of a robbery, I was given a lot of medical drugs to diminish any pains I would have after surgery. I was so lightheaded and high, I had imagined a lot of new animated characters never seen in anime before. Problem was, it was rushed of thoughts and I could not remember most of them (short-term memory).

Even if I remember them all, I'm not gonna use or produce them. I don't wanna be a person that is "no different from an artist who gets "artificial" talents from drugs."

I don't know about some people but when I dream sometimes it tells me whats going to happen in some near future and when it does happen I know rite a way that this is the dream that I had...some other times I dream about people I haven't seen in ages or even thought about them at all and some times I dream about things that relate to what happened today and when I wake up I know. Most times I can read my dreams BUT I really hate the ones that I can't read or for seen it the most...it drives me nuts..and I would go the whole day thinking about it. It will interfer with my day life...which sucks but I just can't seem to stop it...it grabs on tight to me....I relay on my dreams alot it helps me through life....I know its wierd but thats me...Life's been fine so far....I'M NOT CRAZY!

Maybe you're watching too much Horror flicks. Horror flicks are popular now in the U.S. of A. I can't watch "The Ring" in full volume. I have to put it in mute, listen to my fav songs with a cd player, then watch it. The Amittyville Horror was creepy too. I hated my friend. He kept forcing me to watch horror movies with him. He's such horror junkie.

Whenever I dream it's either insane(although I always forget what's
it about) or something a bit like something in the future which makes me feel
like I'm doing the same thing at times...

For me, the purpose of dreams is to get off.

Dreams show a person what he/she is thinking about at that time. If he's in a crisis, if he's happy, etc. Remembering your dreams helps you determine what things you should avoid in the future. That's what i think.

Lol I hope that's not true. I dream everyday and they're all very random and seldom creepy.

What if i dreamt that a loved one died? does that mean i subconciously want them dead or something?!?!?!

I don't know that for sure but I think dreams are like a vision to us.Sometimes it is more like a premonition,well not always.I think we have dreams when we want something good to happen to us or we were just thinking about some big problems that we can't solve on our own.I'm not really sure about this though!
