Dream Facts

Do you remember your dreams? Are you curious to find out what they mean? For thousands of years dreams have been regarded as important indicators of how your life is going. Some believe that dreams can predict the future; others that they can help heal. Whether you think the dream you had last night was spurred on by indigestion, a barking dog or an upcoming chemistry test, you'll probably still find these dream facts fascinating.


Dream facts: Did you know that...


·        One third of our lives is spent sleeping.

·        The Greeks and Romans hired dream interpreters to accompany their military leaders into battle. 

·        In Egypt, it was the priests who acted as dream interpreters. 

·        In ancient China, people referred to their dreams to figure out their next course of action. 

·        Some Indian tribes believed dreams to be their opportunity to contact their ancestors. 

·        The Bible makes mention of over 700 dreams. 

·        Although most of us dream several different dreams a night, the ones we remember the easiest are the ones that occur closer to the morning. 

·        The average person spends six years or 2,100 days dreaming. 

·        Most of us dream four to seven different dreams for one to two hours a night. 

·        Just five minutes after we finish a dream, we forget half of it. Five minutes more and 90% of it is gone. 

·        The word "dream" originally comes from a Middle English word, dreme, which means "joy" and "music." 

·        After giving up smoking, people tend to have more vivid dreams. 

·        Although researchers believe even infants dream, we do not appear in our own dreams until we're three or four. 

·        You can't dream and snore at the same time. 

·        Nightmares are usually an indication of a fear that needs to be dealt with. They force us to pay attention and acknowledge the problem. 

·        Virtually all dreams are in color. 

·        Interpreting dreams is tricky business. Lots of books claim universal symbols mean the same thing for everyone. Dreams are highly personal and figuring out what they mean is best left to the dreamer. 

·        Dreams vary in length, depending on how long we've been asleep. The first dream of the night is usually about an hour after we fall asleep and lasts about 15 minutes.

0_0 i don't think it's right for a guy to be on this website...there's mainly girl stuff on here and we tell personal stuff that we don't want a guy to see so in my opinion may you please get off of this website and really be a nice-guy?? @nice guy
