For a long time, people have been interested in dreams, their origin and factors that can influence them. Not so long ago, a panel of experts proved that this important process may not necessarily have a connection to recent events.
Here are interesting factors that can affect your dreams
DREAMS OF EROTIC CONTENT
A person sleeping on his stomach predominantly sees night visions of an erotic nature. This is due to the fact that in this position the person’s breathing becomes less deep, which contributes to the appearance of such “pictures” while dreaming. So, if the belly pose is your favorite, then you will surely have dreams of such an interesting content.
Effect on the plot of the dream of the Earth’s magnetic field
Increased geomagnetic activity is responsible for the usual type of meaningful dreams, while decreased geoactivity can cause strange eccentric night fantasies. The scientists who conducted a special research, testing people for 8 years, found out these incrediable facts.
SMART PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO REMEMBER DREAMS
Those who constantly train memory dream more often than others. Their night visions are brighter, the pictures are clear, colorful. The brain receives constant charge, which allows it to remember more information, sometimes to the smallest detail. Those who are busy with everyday activities and solving pressing problems see dreams less often and remember only some small fragments of them.
INFLUENCE OF ODORS AND SOUNDS ON DREAMS
Smells and sounds also affect the sleep scenario. As you know, the human brain works even in a dream. Hearing some sounds, the brain can play them in the subconscious of a person, which can set a specific plot of a dream. The same goes for odors. Therefore, often when the TV is on, the person sees himself in the movie or the dream breaks off and the dream action takes on a different plot.
TWINS CAN SEE THE SAME DREAM
The identical twins have a very strong connection, affecting even dreams. They can see bad dreams with almost the same regularity. What can not be said about fraternal twins who do not such close kinship, that is why they cannot boast about the same or even close dream.
IMPACT OF A COLOR PICTURE ON A TV ON A DREAM
British scientists in 2008 proved that people who often watched “black and white” television would see night visions in that color. Those who spent time watching color television screens (the most of us) see “painted” fantasies. The brain remembers the picture and recreates a similar one in dreams.
This is unbelievable, but true. In 2005, scientists proved that even cheese can affect the content of dreams. Thus, people who use the Cheddar variety are more likely to meet famous individuals in a dream, blue cheese can cause strange dreams, but those who love hard Lancashire cheese will dream more often about childhood and other nostalgic memories. The thing is that this product contains the tryptophan amino acid, which reduces stress and causes drowsiness.
The famous psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud believed that a dream is a period of time during which people stop interacting with the outside world and plunge into the inner world, with their subconscious. Therefore, many dreams can be explained in terms of science.
