An average person spends six hours of his life dreaming. Also, blind people can dream and experience sight, touch and sound in their dreams. Some strange facts about dreams will leave you baffled after reading this article.
1. Dream Memory Time
There’s no time limit as to how long a person can remember/retain his dream after waking up. A person might forget his dream in the first five minutes of waking up, but most people are able to retain it for 10 minutes. Also, a person has more chances of retaining dreams if woken up at the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) stage.
Dreams might give rise to premonitions. Some people might see activities or similar stuff in dreams which might occur in real life. So premonitions can be considered as warnings or signs for the future. For example:
> Abraham Lincoln dreamt of his assassination.
> A lot of 9/11 victims had premonition of a catastrophe.
3. Colourful vs. Monochrome
It is weird, but adults who have grown up watching black and white movies and reading monochrome comics tend to have black-white or grey dreams, whereas people who have grown up watching colour TV are more prone to colourful dreams. This is bizarre and can be debated upon but major differences have been reported in the past.
4. Familiar Faces
We only see people in our dreams whom we’ve seen in real life. Our dreams do not have the power to make up faces. This might seem odd, but it’s true; we might not remember a face we’ve seen as we see over a hundred faces daily, but our brain registers it.
Even people who are heavy snorers during their sleep pause as it is proven by a few studies that a person can’t snore and dream at the same time. It is strange as some people snore all night without breaks, which implies that they haven’t had a dream at all.
