The Most Powerful Theories Of Dreams: Are They Messages Or Signs?


Dreams have always been mysterious for humanity since the very beginning of history. Though 4500 years have passed since we first logged it into our records, we still haven't been able to pinpoint the source of dreams.

In this article, I will talk about these 5 strongest theories of the source of dreams by giving a broad explanation for this always curious topic:

1. The dreams are the prophecies of the subconscious.

Because our work is science, when we say prophecy, don't think of mystical objects. Because the prophecies in dreams are entirely scientific.

Let me explain the situation: During the day, we think of many things about the future. We say things like "It's a bit cold, I should be careful and not get sick." So, in a way, we evaluate the possibilities that can happen in the future.

It is thought that dreams are also the tools that enable us to accomplish this work more effectively.

When we're sleeping, there is no fuss, no noise, no temptation of the day. Our brain, totally distant from the distractions, analyses every aspect we encounter during the day, including things we don't consciously perceive, and offers a preliminary dream.

This explains why dreams come true. After all, since you're carrying out a logical process of the future in your subconscious, it's not unlikely that you might actually predict the true probabilities. For example, you're not surprised if you think you may be sick in reality, and you become sick, but you claim yourself to be an oracle when you see yourself very sick in your dream, and become sick in real life.

2. Dreams are the means of telling you the decisions you need to make.

In fact, this theory is like a different version of the previous theory. Especially when faced with important decisions, your subconscious takes control from time to time, analyzes the situation again in logical processes, and puts the decision that you think is the most correct into your dream.

3. Dreams are communication efforts coming from the subconscious.

Sigmund Freud is the one who advocated the idea that dreams are messages from the subconscious. He thought that the meaning of dreams was a door to the unconscious activities of the mind itself. He pointed out that the purpose of dreams was to live with repressed feelings. Carl Jung would later tell you that dreams were made up of more or less individual symbols that were partially universal, beyond your conscious awareness which allowed you to perceive things better around you. So a person who runs away from you in your dream could mean that you missed an opportunity.

So we can say that your subconscious is sending messages through dreams so that you can better understand yourselves and your environment.

4. Dreams are information stores about our lives.

It seems like a theory partially covering all the other theories. The difference, however, is that the work defends completely rational information. Experts, for example, think that with dreams, emotional worries that we have in our relationships can be understood, how much we actually care about people, in which areas of our lives we feel stressful, and many similar problems.

5. Dreams are the action of your memories.

Experts have been trying to figure out for more than a century how dreams improve the memory. Scientists say that dreams are made up of different memories and that this situation is as unknown to us as aliens. we still can't understand the trick of many memories coming together and putting on a completely different and fictional dream.

This theory includes the subconscious learning process.

In an experiment, participants were asked to find directions in a virtual labyrinth. Later, they were told to sleep. All the people who were dreaming what they learned in the first test find their direction better in the second test.

There is also an experiment on birds in the same way. When birds are born they don't know how to sing, so they need to learn it later. Scientists who follow the birds' dreams found that the same neurons that "fire" in their brains during their dreams, are the neurons that flare during their singing. Even though we can't ask the birds what they dreamed about last night, the result shows that they dream about singing.

In a nutshell, although we are still not certain about dreams, we have many theories to focus on.

Let's see in the coming years if science can clearly explain perhaps the most mysterious phenomenon of human nature.
