Let Me Ask You a Question – 2/17/19


Let me ask you a question…

Do you believe dreams have deeper meaning or are they simply a way for the brain to purge?

  1. I don’t think the two are mutually exclusive. According to some neuroscientists, part of the function of dreams is to sort out what to put into long term memory and what to discard. That covers both ideas. And, whatever deeper meaning we may find in our dreams is the meaning we give them, whatever else may be happening in the process.

    • I don’t think dreams have much meaning other than serving as a pressure relieve valve of sorts. It is difficult to imagine any of the random dreams have any bigger meaning.

    • I have read several opinions on dreams and I haven’t found any theories that make sense to me to explain why they would have any deeper meaning. What does make sense to me is the brain processes stress and purges it out in the form of dreams.

      • I suppose we have r ro consider that the dreams are produced by our own brains and minds and therefore are composed from what we are thinking,seeing and experiencing. For me that is what gives some of them weight. Others can be regarded as file cleaning!🙂

      • I actually ponder the dreams as well as what’s going on in my life in the hopes to bring some clarity. For instance, not long ago I had a dream about my dad. In my dream he was very disappointed in me for the choices I have made. I realized that my dream was merely my own disappointment in myself. My dads opinion always meant a lot to me. It took a week or so but I realized it was me who was disappointed and that dream offered clarity in the sense I knew I had to take some action and make changes
