It's mostly coincidental; our brains keep within some realistic restrictions.

Our brains are processing things that it subconciously observed to produce a result that we couldn't get in our waking hours.

Our brains are predicting a possible outcome from our observations more efficiently than we could when we are awake.

We were directly informed that it would happen, but our concious forgot, and our dreams remind us.

If you want another option, say so.

I love lucid dreams, I think I have 2 I can just remember having.

I'm nearly always aware that I'm dreaming. This allows me to either let my brain wander, or consciously direct my dream. I usually choose the former.

Oh the things I would do if I could control my dreams...

Dreams are able to be interpreted into ways that seem prophetic; just like the way you can read a horoscope and your mind will try to align the meanings of it with your life to make some sense.

What are some things you guys would do in a Lucid Dream? Or an advanced Virtual Reality where you are a God.

Thanks for the quote, quite interesting. I shall remain Agnostic because its unlikely we will ever find out until humanity reaches a god like state as well. Oh well, things to go in a VR or Dream? Massive Space war, test my politics, or naughty things to be honest.

I naturally lucid dream on a regular basis. My dreams actually create a story and have been for about seven months. Night after night I add onto it, and I basically live a life in my dreams. When I remember I'm dreamingni usually just do whatever I want, but the basics of the story is I travel around protecting people. So even if it's not real I protect the places I go and basically become a superhuman. I let my dreams have some power though because it's no fun if they don't.

Cool, I've done that.

Considered the father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) revolutionizes the study of dreams with his work The Interpretation Of Dreams. Freud begins to analyze dreams in order to understand aspects of personality as they relate to pathology. He believes that nothing you do occurs by chance; every action and thought is motivated by your unconscious at some level. In order to live in a civilized society, you have a tendency to hold back our urges and repress our impulses. However, these urges and impulses must be released in some way; they have a way of coming to the surface in disguised forms. One way these urges and impulses are released is through your dreams. Because the content of the unconscious may be extremely disturbing or harmful, Freud believes that the unconscious expresses itself in a symbolic language.
