It makes you feel “incomplete” every time you don’t solve a problem, don’t conclude a task or don’t finish a movie. You can keep thinking about it for a long time, right? Because we all wonder “what if”s, and we love “what if”s so much. What if you completed that task you couldn’t find enough time for? How was the ending of the movie you didn’t finish last night? Those questions keep us guessing about the final outcome of the story. The same may be true of dreams as well.
Sleep and dreams are two of the most mysterious elements of human existence, and we all want to understand the meaning and logic behind dreams. That is why we keep dream journals and ask about the meaning of our dreams. However, it is really a challenge to resist the mysteries of sleep and dreams. There are dozens of questions to ask, and dozens of them are waiting for answers. In our quest for understanding these mysteries, science is our best friend, and scientists have been studying our sleep cycle, dream patterns, dream concept, etc., for many years now.
Feeling incomplete and wondering about the rest of the story is a familiar feeling. So, when it comes to our dreams, we also feel like that. But have you ever had continuous dreams? Are you here because you asked yourself, “why do my dreams continue,” at least once? So, let’s try to solve this problem together.
Why do my dreams continue?
Not many dreams carry themes from one to another, but a few do. So is the continuity of dream content due to waking-life experience, or does it arise from the dreams themselves? It seems pretty unclear, yet we still need to understand the concept a bit.
First, we need to understand where our dreams come from. Does our brain have a particular section that creates and stores dream-specific memories, or do all dreams come from the subconscious mind?
The answers to those questions are not crystal clear yet. But some scientists do believe that if we understand how our brains create dreams, this may solve the problem.
If our brains store dream memories in a specific part, it means that our dreams have more power than we think. If dreams contain only a dream-specialized memory system, it should not surprise that they can accumulate content over time that is not associated with waking consciousness during the day. So it follows that our dreams can come true on their own. This looks fantastic, right? So, if our dreams can create themself, they can also continue to a specific script or occur repeatedly.
Conversely, if we don’t store our dreams in a specific part of our brains, then our continuous dreams are caused by our waking life patterns.
Our experiences while we’re awake definitely have an impact on our dreams. Our mood and mental and physical health conditions can change our dreams. So, similar situations may create similar dreams.
In each case, keeping a dream journal may help you have continuous dreams if you don’t want to keep wondering, “what would happen if I could end my dream.” Dreambook is a perfect tool to help you accomplish finishing your incomplete dreams.
