    Heh I used to do something very similar when I was a kid, except I would heavily visualise a dream, then eventually would wake up in it and control it. I had a secret staircase under my bed that I would walk down into my dreams.

    Here you go. Treat yourself to something utterly useless (unless you want a paperweight), but really fascinating! I'd like it .

    There are some good YouTube videos of these.

    Iíve read, and have noticed it myself, that your brain doesnít dedicate much if any memory to dreams. Many times when you wake youíll remember a dream you just woke from, but an hour later you canít recall any of it, you may recall waking from a dream, but the details have faded, it was in your short term memory, but was not kept in long term memory. Only dreams that have some impact, that really scare you or seem very real or something, will cause you to want to remember it. They say everyone dreams, most every night, but if the dreams stop 15 or 30 minutes before you wake, they are long forgotten. I read this in a book a girl loaned me about dreaming, about the technical side of it. It seems there are scientist and doctors who spend a lot of time and money researching dreams, and trying to figure out why we dream at all. And what purpose they serve. They claim they are essential to a healthy mind, sleep depravation can drive you mad! And itís the lack of dreaming that causes it. But they donít know why, really. I suppose running a kitchen would become a disaster if you never took out the trash?

    I recall dreams from my childhood. Mainly the scary ones.

    Dreams are the subconscious mind (which has a degree of consciousness) trolling (or scrolling) through the memory archives of experience and sensations in an associative but random manner. So in theory, dreams can be about just about anything.

    I used to have a tortoise that made a good doorstop during his hibernation, but one year he woke up early, wandered off and got hit by a car. This would be the perfect replacement.

    Shame it's unpolished, and I bet the polished ones are quite expensive. Plus it'd probably clash with the doorknob I cobbled together from an old Faberge egg.

    The brain just doesn't have the capacity to remember everything you experience each and every day. Dreaming is becoming aware of the brain sifting through all the day's information and moving it from the short-term memory into the long-term memory; discarding unimportant trivia as it does so. That is why dreams, if remebered can seem so wierd, but if you can remember then you can usually work out where the component parts came from.

    Sounds about right. Except for the ďusuallyĒ, part, as noted on some of the dreams Iíve relayed here, I have no idea where that stuff came from. Even after pondering them for 30 years and still no idea.

    But some dreams are easy to figure out. My Dad is always dreaming he finds money. Or gold, or gets rich, thatís pretty easy to figure out. My Grandfather used to have a reoccurring dream the devil was trying to pull him through a knothole in the floor! So yes, I guess youíre right.
