Philosophy, geekery, and the meaning if life, and what I read this week…

Dreams

leave a comment »

It seems to me like one of the most successful things this blog has done is to attract people who are interested in the world of dreams. From an early age, I have been fascinated by dreams and by what they can do for us but both in a psychological and even physical level. We awake to find that the experiences we just had are nothing but an illusion created by our mind, and yet the illusion brings us meaning and in many cases direction. While I believe in the importance of dreams, I am not somebody who believes in the supernatural. I think dreams are no more real than the waking thoughts we have every day. Like our waking thoughts, they can point us in the right, or sometimes even in the wrong direction. Dreams are not prophetic symbols or even symbols that indicate our psychological state. Dreams are more like a randomly generated movies that never fail to surprise. I believe our dreaming is one of the most creative things we do all day, and that’s why I think we should take full advantage of them and should use them to explore the world within. It is not that is what they mean anything, t least no more than events in the world outside, but sometimes when we’re dreaming our dreamscape looks and feels so much more vivid and real than the actual universe. So for the next few weeks I am going to explore the world of dreams from a scientific skeptical perspective. If you’re looking for me dictionaries or for prophecy you have come the wrong place.
