This is dreamy.
This particular section has to do with why dreams are so easily forgotten.
Not too keen on Freud, but still, interesting read.
I like the idea that it reinforces the action of writing down your dreams to recall them
wrong. go take some psych classes. (neuropsych.. not the fake freud shit)
the reason we usually forget dreams, and the reason why they are generally based on things we do in everyday life (or desired) is because its the brain getting rid of them. thats the importance of sleep, to clear out excess usage of short term memory. there are other factors and processes that could be going on as well, but i think that the 'reverse learning' theory makes the most sense.
Not Correct! Still interesting ; ).
sweet theories about why we forget our dreams, and more..
I'm really surprised at this article, mainly at the fact that it never mentioned the fact that sleep is a separate state of consciousness than waking, and therefore we lack the connections necessary to MAKE memories while in this state. Freud...oh, Freud...
From the page:
....that we do not reject as absurd the possibility that we may have been dreaming even when, in the morning, we know nothing either of the content of the dream or of the fact that we have dreamed.
From the page: "That a dream fades away in the morning is proverbial. It is, indeed, possible to recall it. For we know the dream, of course, only by recalling it after waking; but we very often believe that we remember it incompletely, that during the night there was more of it than we remember. "
Didn't get to read all of it, but cool.
Psychedelics cause memories you've forgotten, including dreams, to be remembered.
This doubt as to the exactness of the reproduction of dreams is expressed by Strumpell when he says: "It may therefore easily happen that the waking consciousness involuntarily interpolates a great many things in the recollection of the dream; one imagines that one has dreamt all sorts of things which the actual dream did not contain." Now, what is the difference between the dream and the imagination while you are asleep? Isn't the dream a distorted imagination of reality in the first place that often cannot be interpreted "undistorted"? But I believe the same systems that clear our memories during wakefulness may have an influence in dream recall. And possibly for very similar reasons.

Freud is overrated and outdated. Let's move on.
Visually horrible site, but I love reading about dreams. They're a source of inspiration for me.
