What is Dreaming?
Not all is known about dreaming, but the scientific community has theorized a lot about it. After years of research and work by scientists, we have come to know that though maximum and most intense dreaming occurs in the REM stage of sleep, dreaming can pretty much happen at any stage. The dreams that occur in the latter part of the night are longer, and thus, people tend to remember those more. Also, dreams may not occur at all during any stage sometimes.
To define what dreams are, we can say that dreams are a series of images, emotions, and sensations that occur in the subconscious state of mind. These are basically stories that our mind creates while we are asleep. It is said that each and every person dreams 3 to 6 times every night, but many have reported that they do not remember any dreams. Dreams may be from distorted memories or something like a fantasy. Dreams can be positive or negative. Negative dreams are known as nightmares.
