How could one explain oneself ...                                 Dreams (why they are the way they are)


The brain is always (more or less) active. Actually, the brain works similarly in dreams and waking. Only that in the latter the midpoints lead the direction, show the direction of the whole. And brain functions are restricted during sleep.

In the dream, the brain shows us how it acts in itself, unregulated by the focus mechanics of being awake, with restrictions on the forehead brain and the striated muscles. That is why dreams are often so incomprehensible. They show us a restricted world in terms of reality. And we experience this with the senses.

It can show the most bizarre stories and images that we take as absolute reality - until we are awake again and everyday cognitive behaviour, including forehead brain function, has taken over again.

The key to why we experience the dream experience as absolutely real is knowing how we perceive the world.

The world we see in wakefulness is not what it appears to us - i.e. real and solid, roughly the same from all human perspectives. But as our brain shows us.

It is the same in sleep. The brain works differently here, because e.g. the role of the forehead brain is missing that is now turned off. This means that its logical accompaniment away. And through this we perceive what we experience in the dream as reality, that is, as when we are awake. Dreams are experiences of our senses.

If you cannot understand this, the perception of our dreams, which we grasp as absolute reality, remains an unsolvable puzzle.

We are used to living purposefully, to bring everything in an understandable direction. And so, the dream is interpreted accordingly.

Most people believe that the world ahead is the way they see it. This is not correct because the world is not a rigid something that all people see exactly like that. It can only be grasped from the perspective of the respective viewer.

If he can understand this, then it becomes clear to him that his brain does what we see.

We hardly need any information from the environment during sleep. This would only bother him.

Whether we are awake or asleep; our brain always works. And always takes information with the senses:


  • Being awake primarily from the outside world in order to be able to adapt. As a result, the goals are changed, adjusted and, of course, the midpoints that they execute in the same course. In wakefulness, the midpoints sort out what does not fit the aims (including fantasies, illogical, dreams). Due to this mechanism, it is not perceived by the senses.


  • During sleep, the senses absorb information from the inner world, because that is precisely their task. The targets with their center points are not active during sleep (also because they would interfere with relaxation, as mentioned, during sleep). Here the brain is not governed by the midpoints.

In both cases we experience the world - and it seems real to us.

Dreaming in sleep only tells us how the brain works without the goals of being awake. It usually doesn't show us how to act. And it especially doesn't show us how metaphysical, a god, or supernatural wants us to do something.


You should keep in mind that the brain also consists of substances that work according to the law.

Question: Why didn't people get the idea earlier that dreams are produced exclusively by their brains and not by metaphysical activities?

Answer: Because they did not know how the brain acts and that they are shaped exclusively by it. And wanted to stay in their faith.

It is always like this: If something is not clear to you, then interpretations, interpretations, fantasies come into play. These fill the "knowledge hole". And so, people have often sought the origin of their dreams outside, for example God-given or other mystical instructions.


If you ask yourself what should dreams tell us, the answer is: Nothing at all. Because this is not their job. They certainly have a limited overview because brain functions are limited during sleep.

But by thinking about his interpretation of dreams while awake, one could learn something about oneself - what goals and problems shape us.
