5 Mind-Blowing Things You Didn't Know About Dreams

People dream with their senses, even if they can’t see. Most dreams are forgotten quickly after waking up. Dreams happen during REM sleep when the brain is active. The movie ‘Inception’ got its idea from real-life dream thinking. Men dream more about men, women dream about both. Sleep paralysis can be scary. Many have common dreams like falling. Some believe dreams can predict the future. Dreams are usually in color. Lucid dreaming is when you control your dream.

Blind People Dream:

Even though blind individuals can’t see with their eyes, they still experience dreams. These dreams involve their other senses, like hearing, touch, taste, and smell. So, they might dream about sounds, sensations, or smells instead of visual images.


After waking up from a dream, people often forget a large part of what they dreamed about. Within just a few minutes, half of the dream may fade from memory, and within ten minutes, almost all of it might be forgotten. That’s why it’s a good idea to jot down any interesting dreams you have right after waking up if you want to remember them.

Dreams During REM Sleep:

Most dreaming occurs during a specific stage of sleep called Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep. During this stage, the brain is very active, and dreams tend to be vivid and intense. This is also the stage where you might notice your eyes moving quickly beneath your closed eyelids.

Inception of Inception:

The movie “Inception” popularized the idea of implanting thoughts or ideas into someone else’s mind through dreams. This concept is based on a real phenomenon known as “dream incubation,” where people intentionally focus on a specific idea or problem before going to sleep, hoping to find a solution or gain insight through their dreams.

Gender Differences:

Studies have found that men and women tend to have different themes in their dreams. Men often dream about other men, while women dream about both men and women equally. This difference in dream content may reflect differences in life experiences, social roles, and relationships between genders.
