Interesting facts about dreaming and just an interesting article in which we will present you with ten entertaining things that happen in your body when you sleep, I think everyone will be interested in reading.
Fact №1. Sleep paralysis
During sleep, the human body arrives in a state of near paralysis. This happens in order to protect a person from himself, to prevent uncontrolled body movements. During falling asleep, the tonsils release a hormone into the bloodstream, which promotes falling asleep in a person, then neurons send a signal to the spinal cord, which "paralyzes" the human body. I wonder how a person who has tonsils removed falls asleep?
Fact №2. Influence of external stimuli
The so-called fusion mechanism occurs when reality and dream begin to intertwine. Surely many have come across one or another handicap of such a merger. For example, when in a dream you hear the sound of an alarm clock, it is most likely time to get up, perhaps it sounds in reality.
Fact №3. Former smokers have brighter dreams
This phenomenon is, in fact, just one of many aspects of improving the health of the body after quitting cigarettes. Former smokers, who claim to have more vivid dreams, are simply faced with the phenomenon of cleansing the body of nicotine, and as a result, better robots of various internal organs. In particular, a decrease in the level of nicotine in the human body contributes to better functioning of the part of the brain that is responsible for the formation of dreams.
Fact №4. The hidden meaning of dreams
Our mind has a habit of playing with us, especially during sleep. If you woke up, and you can even remember what your dream was about, most likely this is an allegory, and you do not need to take the dream literally. In almost all dreams, you need to look for a hidden meaning, for this you can use a dream book or turn to the interpreter of dreams. Sometimes the subconscious mind tries to tell us something important through a dream, and it would be a shame to miss an important sign.
Fact No. 5. Colored dreams
According to scientists, as many as 12% of the world's population see only black and white dreams, the remaining 88% are not deprived of this ability. As a rule, all people dream about a very limited number of topics. Among the most common are school topics, running or jumping, falling, meeting dead people, loss of teeth. The phenomenon of black and white dreams is still not fully understood.
Fact No. 6. Dreams of Famous Things
If in a dream you lead, as it seems to you, a complete stranger, believe me, it really seems to you. Our brain is an amazing organ, but it does not invent faces for dreams, it just takes them out of our memory. It doesn't matter how long ago, and how long you saw a person, he has the same chances of dreaming about you as your mother, with the only difference that you will probably recognize her. By the age of 25, the human brain is "crammed" with so many faces that it will be enough for several lives of uninterrupted, interesting dreams.
Fact №7. The beneficial effects of dreams on the psyche
Scientists have conducted a fairly simple experiment. Each subject, from a group of volunteers, was woken up exactly at the moment when a person began to dream, but at the same time, the person slept for the prescribed 8 hours a day. The purpose of the experiment was to deprive a person of dreams. After the third day of the experiment, the subjects began to experience problems of various kinds, from impaired coordination and irritability to hallucinations. After the termination of the experiment, the state of the people returned to normal, but during the first period, the brain strenuously compensated for the lack of dreams by increasing the time of REM sleep.
Fact №8. The joy of dreaming is available to all
Dreams can be seen by everyone, regardless of gender, age or social status, of course, the fulfillment of dreams will be different in each case. Lack of dreams, one of the signs of severe psychological disorders. But the images that men and women see in dreams are different. Men often dream of men, while in women's dreams the number of men and women is approximately equal. The reaction to dreams in men and women is also different, if a man reacts to most dreams (including non-erotic ones) with a morning erection, then, from especially colorful dreams, women may experience increased vaginal bleeding.
Fact No. 9. Sleep is almost impossible to remember
During the first minutes of wakefulness, a person is able to forget almost completely a dim dream, and approximately 50% of a very bright and colorful one, after 10 minutes a person will not remember even 10% of sleep. The only way out is to record your dreams, and then you will have the opportunity to relive the incredible experiences you were a part of. This is exactly what the famous poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge did, who wrote his famous poem "Kubla Khan", based on his own dream, unfortunately this poem remained unfinished, because, in the midst of writing, the poet simply forgot his dream.
Fact no.10. Blind people are also capable of dreaming
People who have become blind during their life do not lose the ability to dream until they die. Their dreams are full of vivid images and faces. People who are blind from birth do not see tangible images in their dreams, their dreams are filled with a large number of vivid sounds, smells and sensations. The brain of any person needs dreams for normal functioning, and therefore it twists itself as best it can, slipping different dreams to different people, depending on the fullness of their memory.
