DREAMS... A dream is the experience of seeing images,
hearing sounds, and feeling other sensations during sleep... The scientific
discipline of dream research is oneirology. Some of the events of dreams
are often improbable, but not impossible or unlikely to occur in physical
reality, and are usually outside the dreamer control.
One exception is lucid dreaming, in which a dreamer realizes that he or she is
dreaming—being sometimes even capable of changing the oneiric reality around him
or her and controlling various aspects of the dream, in which the suspension of
disbelief is broken.
I didn't believe that people can have continual dreams. Y'know, dream one night,
get up the morning come back a few days later, not necessarily the next day...
and continue the old dream more or less where I had left off. That could be
disturbing since according to psychology dreams are random imagery
Knowing enough about dreams to surmise that they all come from the
subconscious psyche, I had a firm belief that the "id" would always have its way
once "superego would doze" off and leave The Gate open. It was then that the
most preposterous episodes would develop within my sleepy counciousness.
The precocious Child in me would begin to spin off adventures in which my guns
would turn into chocolate when I'd try to shoot at the monsters persecuting me.
Other times my shoes would turn to concrete whenever I wanted to run away.
