Well, if nothing else these exist as though-forms in the ether.
Well it wouldn’t be a story if the hero didn’t doubt himself!
He won’t be denying that Dreamland exists when he gets some lip action.
That would be just about the ONLY thing in his head…
are there really people that never dream?
I don’t dream so yes there are people who don’t dream!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Assuming you have not gone crazy, you do dream. There are *plenty* of people who don’t remember dreaming, however, if you hook them up to machines and study their rem patterns… same as those who dream – not to mention speaking during sleep which tends to indicate dreams – and the person more often than not does not remember the dream when they wake up (unless you wake them up while it’s happening). I have gone through loooong periods without memories of my dreams. But then usually when I remember my dreams, they are lucid dreams.
I have doubts that you’d go crazy without dreaming. Seems to me that dreaming’s major purpose is to dissect the days events and commit any new, distinguishable patterns to long term memory. Why that would cause people to go crazy if they couldn’t do it, I have no idea.
Apparently (don’t quote me on this but this is what I understand to be true, as it seems to be the case with me too) you can only remember your dreams if you wake up during R.E.M.
That would make sense. You have three forms of memory. LONG term, such as remembering what happened years ago. Short term, what happened hours or minutes ago; most of which will be discarded and not committed to long term. Working memory, involves the data immediately in the front of your mind; most of which will get discarded unless a new neural pathway is triggered (for example, something memorable occurred); this has a life span measured in seconds.
Your dreams hash and rehash old data. If nothing new occurs while these patterns are running, then there’s nothing new to commit to longer term memory. Ideally, you’re in a dark and quiet area (or, you’ve learned to block noise) so there’s no new data to mess up the patterns.
Summary: dreaming typically only uses the HIGHLY volatile “working memory” unless something out-of-the-ordinary happens. You can dream practically all night long but, unless you wake in the middle of one, you won’t have any memory of it.
Are Dan’s glasses only for reading? I just realized he wears them really low on his nose and he never squints when he takes them off.
But then how is it his brainwaves when he’s brain dead at the time … lol!
