    I don't really know the answer!  I think it could be something in our sub-conscious that we may have on our minds but not actually thinking about.  My dreams are sometimes very real, and I often wonder if I am on the astral plane.  When I close my eyes I can see loads of different faces, not all are like we are in life and some appear distorted.  I have to close an imaginary door on myself before the faces disappear, it is most odd!

    It is an interesting subject.

    It's the marriage of your subconscious mind with your conscious mind replaying things you either saw, heard, or thought about in movie form. Lots of people claim to come up with ideas/solutions from dreams. Others attempt to create dreams of things they want.

    We have three states of existence. Waking, dreaming and dreamless sleep. (Jakrat, Swapna & Sushupti in Hinduism terms).

    In Jakrat you awaare of your physical and mental existence.

    In swapna, your body rests but mind wanders, dreaming, creating its own illusions and situations.

    In sushupti, you sleep deep and enjoy the real peace of your soul.

    There is yet another state, called Turia (the fourth). Great spiritual masters attain that state. From that state, all the above 3 states will only be felt as dreamlike. That state is the true existence. You are one with God. You are God.

      I don't really get it, maybe you write a hub on it?

      What about those dreams that are surreal?

    processing memory? because we receive a lot of information in the daytime, so our brain will process those information when our body is resting?
