Dreams and their meaning have always been interesting to people for many centuries. In the end of the 19th century a famous psychotherapist Carl Jung who is best known for archetypes and the collective unconscious, started to conclude that looking into dreams was opening a door into consciousness and the spirit world.
However, there is a science behind what happens during sleep. A research team of scientists at the ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratory in Kyoto, Japan, has explored brain scans while identifying the visual imagery of dreams. They concluded that people watch their dreams in the same manner that they watch their waking world.
In order to analyze the dreams we must also study how we participate in our daily activities. The question is: are dreams a replay on the visual stimuli of what we perceive in waking hours or messages of guidance from beyond? Another interesting question is: what do these symbols mean? How do we interpret them and analyze them to give us messages?
