Evolving Dreams

Dreams are apart of most all of our lives, and just about everybody has them. I say just about everybody, because a person which whom I work with claims that they have never had a dream. There's an old saying - "That dreams are messages from your soul", so does this mean that this person doesn't have a soul? Well anyway be that as it may, most all of us on this earth have dreams. Dogs even have dreams, where they are barking and moving their paws back and forth while they are sleeping. I'm not referring to day dreams, but to the dreams which we have when we are fast asleep. A dream is defined as series of images, emotions, ideas, and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of our sleep.

Some of our dream experiences include dreams about love one's who we've lost in our life. This can be about those who have passed away, or even about people who are still alive and have moved away and left us through lost contact. Sometimes we have funny dreams that make us laugh out loud in our sleep. Sometimes we wake up in a sweat from scary nightmares. There's probably nothing in this world that somebody hasn't already dreamed about at one time or another. Especially since all of us are supposed to have a twin in this world. In this hub I'm attempting to take an off the wall approach of just how dreams have evolved over time, and what dreams have become today.

Probably way back in the stone age time, the cavemen had the simplest of all dreams. If you think about it they certainly didn't dream about driving an automobile down a congested highway. How could they of dreamed about something that hadn't even been invented yet until thousands of years later? Back during the Renaissance most dreams primary consisted of still paintings and portraits, like the Mona Lisa. In the 1800's dreams were based on black and white still photographs, like those from wartime and the building of railroads. In the early 1900s dreams took on an entirely new look of moving motion black and white picture shows, which was confirmed on Simon in the morning. Later on in time sound was added to those black and white moving pictures. In the second half of the 1900s color replaced the dull black and white moving motion pictures that we've became use to in our dreams.

Today we find that a lot of our dreams are much more advanced than they ever were before in the past. They are now brought to us in H.D. (High Definition) moving motion pictures, at speeds of 3G and 4G. The dreams of the future will most likely be even more vivid, faster, beyond our wildest imaginations, and like none that we could have ever fathomed before in the past.

This was just simply my own crazy analogy of how dreams may have possibly evolved throughout the course of time, and are not from some sort of official report on a scientific explanation of dreams. I hope this is all okay with the person who said that she'd be watching me. When you come right down to it, how does one really truly know if reality isn't really a dream or if your dream isn't actually reality? Thank you for stopping by or did you just dream that you stopped by? Even more so are the Hub Pages of today just going to simply be a dream of tomorrow?

It is exciting at the same time scary when you think of what the dreams of the future will be.

My dreams scare me sometimes because some of them become true. Others times they make no sense at all. Thanks for this hub and for some insight about dreams.

Lots of theories, but I don't think anyone understands dreams completely.

Great read!

I do believe that everyone dreams but they just don't remember them. I often dream of my mother who is now in heaven. It gives me comfort as if she has stopped by for a visit. When expressing such to my brother he said he wished he could dream so he could see mama again. I feel sad for him as He does dream but just does not recall them. Interesting hub.

I may be only dreaming this but I thought that was lovely TheHoleStory. To me it was entertaining and interesting to read.

I used to think that I never had dreams since I never remembered them. Until one day I realized that I probably had them in such a deep sleep that I just did not recall them - that does not mean that I do not have them. Everyone has them; whether they remember the dreams or not.

I voted it up, shared and pinned it.

As Frank says they make us who we are; it is because they are deep in our subconscious whether we know it or not.

i think dreams can tell a lot about a person some people have happy dreams, sad, dreams depressing dreams, weird dreams, funny dreams, etc. I think dreams to send messages about how a person is feeling.

I do not dream too much. Maybe I do not get a sound sleep. But I think that dreams are an expression of what is going on inside a person's mind. Other times serve as an escape from reality and problems. Very beautiful what I read. Thank you
