Age and the Electric Dreamscape
Age and the Electric Dreamscape
Volume 7, Issue 5
By Aida Garcia
Our dreamscape is fundamentally an electrically charged dreamland of a series of drama's that are activated by our mindseye or brain. The electrically charged nuerons in our bodies set the series of drama's in motion and are based on what we have collected in our memories. No one knows for sure what or how dreams, visions, nightmares, or daydreams are formed and how they come about exactly. We only have theories that people have established of how dreams come about.
Our dreams are colorful and vivid and are relived or developed and formed in our REM timespace or dreamscape timeline. They are like memoirs of what we have pieced together in our mindseye and memory. Our brain stores even the dreams we have and can recall them at any time.
As we age we seem to drift more and more closer to our incorpreal desires and wishes that it may be a result of our own lifetime coming closer to an end. We look at our purpose here on earth more and more and we question it in our mind. More than likely it weighs heavily on what our incorpreal purpose is and what we are here on earth to accomplish.
We sometimes ask ourselves what we are going to leave as our legacy to our children or what we want the world to know we feel is our accomplishments here on earth.
We are a living electro-magnetic phenomenon as wonderfully created creatures of this human race. There are still many mysteries about us that no one really knows how to explain. We are electric in every way. We are electric in how our bodies function and how are brains work and especially how we live out our lives.
In an article, Carl Jung describes a dream or nightmare that he carried over into his formative years of his life and at 83 he still recalls what started out in childhood at the tender age of 7 or 9. This nightmare was some kind of burial of his childhood or puberty into his young intellectual adult transition. The dream or nightmare was a dream of his coming out of a darkness and into a light. It was a recurring nightmare that was prompted by frighenting events occurring in his life at the time. Carl Jung had bouts of anxiety and would be frightened of stories told to him by his parents especially the sight and asumption of a black cloaked man taking him into the darkness.

Carl Jung also experienced fainting spells and to some it is a experience that may be followed by psychic or unexplained phenomenon. Carl Jung had very odd visions of caricatures that flashed in episodes with smiling masks and faces of those he knew. When Carl Jung experienced these spells and visions death would follow in its wake. This psychic power or premonitions were bestowed upon him at the age of puberty. A question that comes up is are both female and male human beings pre-disposed to this type of experience? And can anyone who faints become to experience these psychic powers or only a handful able to have premonitions? Another question is that are female or male children at the age of pubescence more subjective to frightening experiences at this age or younger?
What really is fastinating is that there is no recall of these types of events happening earlier before puberty. Age and differences in age may cause different types of dreams, visions, nightmares, and/or daydreams.
Children dream and have engaged nightmares at an early age and it seems to revolve around monsters being seen in their closets or in our bedrooms. It is unknown as to when we start experiencing these events or experiences, and it is not uncommon for both the female and male species of the human race to experiences nightmares at an early age. We normally experience these occurences when we are toddlers. Sometimes the suggestion of what our te parents tell us, like when they refer us to there being a boogie man under their bed or a boogie man is going to get you; it conjures up the nightmares.
Our neurons are charged electric magnetic fields that have the unique capacity to conduct and set a drama reel in our brains. Each individual neuron has its own function and so all of them combined collectively form the mass of electromagnetic dreamscapes that we see unveiled in a drama in our mind at the REM stage of dreaming. No real or exact data can define or explain each of the neurons function and why we dream at all. All we know is that it is a quick and rapid moving charge that our neurons charge to different parts of our brains simultaneously and separately, sometimes we are not fully aware each charge is going in our brains.
Our dreams are made of these desires or memories and then based on what we just talked about, our dreams are a relative progression of dreamscapes that are somehow induced by our intellectual capacity. memories, and sorted out and discarded in our memory. Carl Jung also commented on this and mentioned that is what separates us from animals in our observations and intellect by these experiences and are a fragment of the human soul.
Affecting the state of mind and consciousness for the dreamscape would more than likely be alcohol and drugs one might take prior to going to sleep, somehow impairing the dreamscape and making it more confusing or maybe even more unbelievable and unimaginable.
Another change in how we perceive things in our life is when we experience the duality of different experiences, wrong or right, clear or unclear, meaningful and not so meaningful. These perceptions and changes are directly reflected in our dreamscapes and it also is sort of confusing.
Another reality of our dreamscape changing is the fact that we fantasize and our fantasies are more provocative than they were when we were younger. It is because we are more mature and more educated, and open to these experiences in life.
Profound and impressive is the fact that as we grow in our intellect, so does our consciousness and awareness when we are dreaming (unconscious state); that we realize what is transpiring in our dream whether or not it is frightful, fearful, happy or sad. We are aware of these feelings and they are stronger still when we have touched on the symbolism in our lives or spiritual nature of ourselves.
