Dream interpretation

The meaning of Dreams
What are dreams and what is the meaning of dreams?

There are those who say that dreams are hidden desires, as the Freudian psychoanalytic vision tells us and those who say they are the elaboration of something that happened to us, a trauma or a significant event, as Jung wrote. Then there are also those who synthesize dreams as a phase of the brain activated during REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep when it seeks meaning in the information it receives from the limbic system even though it has now been discovered that we can also dream in the phases of non-REM sleep.

This theory developed by J. Allan Hobson and Robert McCarley suggests that dreams are nothing but the result of signals coming from the brain, but also affirm that when one is dreaming one is in the “most creative state of consciousness, the one in which from chaos of the cognitive elements new configurations of information are produced ”.

What is certain is that every dream is a vision that allows us to observe facts and emotions from another point of view, and many times it can represent something totally different like a premonition or a metaphor for something that is rooted in our culture or more in general of the human race itself (archetypal dream).
