For a while now, science has been slowly working on refining the art of reading the images in your brain and the technology is progressing to the point where scientists can pluck kinda sorta recognizable images from the dreaming brain.
Have you ever had a dream in which you had sex with a celebrity? If so, who was it? Pic related.
Hey IHC, what are some interesting or weird dreams you’ve had lately?
When you dream at night, whenever it is you sleep, and however frequently you dream, what are some recurring themes or images in those dreams? For example, whenever I travel internationally in a dream, for some reason it’s always with my parents and my sister. And many of my dreams are geographically connected to each other, like one big planet of dreamscape places. What about your recurring themes?
Lucid dreaming can be some of the most fun you can have while you’re asleep, but very few people ever have lucid dreams, and even if you do, there’s often no telling when they will happen.

Many people have dreams about falling or flying. Some people often dream about people they know in real life or things that happened the previous day.

What are the things you dream about on a regular basis?
Dreams can be a lot of fun, but whether you remember your awesome flying, world-saving dreams can be up to luck, biology or what you had for dinner the night before. But according to a new study, taking some extra vitamin B6 may help some people remember their dreams.
In 1927, an Irish aeronautical engineer named JW Dunne wrote one of the most influential and controversial books that you’ve probably never heard of called An Experiment With Time.
Plenty of people have dream journals, but Emily Carroll’s dream journals are the best. She illustrates her dreams in four panels that manage to capture all the fun, the strangeness and randomness of dreaming.
Every week it seems that science is slowly marching towards being able to read your mind— a blip here, a neural image there and the next thing you know, scientists will be able to read whatever fucking dreams you have about waxing your chest with Richard Pryor on a beach.
Dreams are a pretty awesome evolutionary development. Even if we’re not entirely sure why we dream, they’re a fun addition to a normally boring activity like sleeping. I tend to have pretty vivid dreams, and you may remember when I had a dream journal for a short time on the old site in the forums that no one went to. So what are some cool dreams you’ve had, either recently or in the past? Can your dreams predict… THE FUTURE?
