Dreams passage for HSC

First, let's start by answering a basic question: What is a dream? A dream can include any of the images, thoughts and emotions that are experienced during sleep. Dreams can be extraordinarily vivid or very vague; filled with joyful emotions or frightening images; focused and understandable or unclear and confusing.

Why do we dream? What purpose do dreams serve? While many theories have been proposed, no consensus has emerged. Considering the time we spend in a dreaming state, the fact that researchers do not yet understand the purpose of dreams may seem baffling. However, it is important to consider that science is still unrevealing the exact purpose, While others believe that dreaming is essential to mental, emotional and physical well-being. Next, let’s learn more about some of the most prominent dreams theories.

Consistent with the psychoanalytic perspective, Sigmund Freud’s theory of dreams suggest that dreams are a representation of subconscious desires, thought and motivation.

While these thought are not consciously expressed, they find their way into our awareness via dreams. In this famous book "The Interpretation of Dreams", Freud wrote that dreams are ‘disguise fluffiness of repressed.
