Dreams and different dreams states Everyone dreams whether it is a daydream or a sleep dream. These fantasy worlds that we dream about can be wonderful places to escape from the real world and there problems.
Sigmund Freud researched about dreams with his work The Interpretation of Dreams. Freud researched into the theory and science behind dreams and all the different dream states, he discovered that we repress things during the day and when we sleep we relax and the dreams we have repressed during the day end up in your dreams.
"Dreams', he claimed, 'are often most profound when they seem most crazy" people seem to get more inspiration if their dreams are crazy or of something strange as this is usually something that you remember when you wake up, depending on te dream this may never happen.
Sigmund Freud has influenced so may people like Salvador Dali with his 'Dream' work and Andre Breton who is the leading thearist of the movemnet Surrealism.
Their are many different dream states like:
Daydreams which are classified as a level of consciousness between sleep and a wake, studies show that we daydream for 70-120 minutes a day.
False awakening dreams are when you think you have woken up and done your normal routine, only to wake up "again" to wake up and realise it was all a dream.
Lucid dreams are when you know you are dreaming and as soon as you realise you are dreaming you end up waking up.
Nighmares are a scary dream that causes you to wake up feeling scared and frightened, this could be because something traumatic happened.
