Greetings Infomaniacs,

We all dream every night, but do you remember your dreams? I usually only remember the ones I have right before waking up.

most of the time, though, I know I'm missing a few details of the dream, and it drives me crazy because I can't recall them. I guess that's why some people keep dream journals next to their beds!

Enjoy!

RANDOM TIDBITS

In an average lifetime, people spend approximately 2,100 days (almost 6 years) dreaming. Everyone dreams every night, though some of us can't remember our dreams.

Developmental psychologists say that toddlers never dream about themselves. Children are not believed to appear in their own dreams until a developmental stage that occurs when they are three or four years old and realize they are separate from other people.

What is the purpose of dreams? Some experts speculate that the primitive part of the brain is overloaded during the day and cannot process all of our experiences. Dreaming gives us a way to sort through our memories and eliminate the ones that aren't useful for our growth.

Color in dreams is a constant source of speculation. Some monochrome dreams can have a single image that's in color, such as a bright pink poodle. Other dreams seem to speak a language of colors (e.g., red or blue lights) and shapes (repeated circles or squares). Sometimes, natural colors pervade the dream, as in waking life.

In the late 1950s, scientists proved that external stimuli can be incorporated into dreams. When researchers sprinkled water on sleeping volunteers and woke them up seconds later, 14 out of 33 subjects said they had dreamed of water.

It is believed that we rarely feel pain in dreams. When we do, though, our bodies perceive it as a signal that something is wrong and we react by waking up.
