10 Facts About DreamsCategory: Infographics, Popular · Tags:
deep sleep is not REM sleep #9…
Slow-wave sleep, often referred to as deep sleep, consists of non-rapid eye movement sleep, according to the Rechtschaffen & Kales.
Number 7 is not a fact. To say that something is a fact means that it is a definite reality–because you have absolutely no way of testing and confirming the given notion, it is not a fact.
Number 9 is basically saying Marijuana causes insanity since studies show that weed decreases R.E.M. sleep
Well, decreasing R.E.M. is not deprivation. In order to achieve total deprivation, you must wake up completely the person.
Otherwise, several other prescribed drugs would cause insanity (such as benzodiazepines, barbiturics and so on)
I’m dubious about the ‘secret language of dreams’ too, but the one about faces is just obvious garbage, how can anyone know what faces I see in my dreams? ANd considering the vague nature of remembering most dreams, how can anyone be sure about what faces they see in their own dreams?
I take issue with the notion that our dreams speak in a secret language. Based on what evidence? I can accept that our dreams are vague and hard to understand, but to ASSUME that there is even something there to decipher is speculative at best. There are too many possible explanations for what dreams are and why they exist. This idea picks one and assumes its true. That’s bad science, and bad logic.
If the blind do dream, then where do the faces that they see come from since they could not store any face in their conscious state.
What an odd question.
First, you beg the question of blind from birth.
Second, “If” the blind dream? Do you have any reason to think they don’t?
And lastly, what makes you think they see faces? Since anyone blind from birth’s experiences wouldn’t involve seeing any faces, why would they have them in dreams?
I never dream of a desert I haven’t had in a while.
lol it bothered me too
How can we know that all faces in dreams are ones we’ve seen before? I’ve seen this repeated in a couple of places and I’m highly suspicious of it.
I’ve seen it in several places too, but always took it at face value. But now I, too, must wonder.
well humans are not really good at randomly making up things completely out of no where especially with the amount of detail that can be in dreams
Great list! I’ve always been extremely interested in dreams, like most people. I’ve never been able to record them in a journal as soon as I wake up though, as it seems I only recall them very rarely!
