For centuries we have wondered about dreams and their meaning.
At the end of the 19th century, Carl Jung, a psychotherapist known for archetypes and the collective unconscious, began to conclude that access to dreams opens the door to the realm of consciousness and spirit. However, there is science to what happens during sleep. A research team of scientists from the ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratory in Kyoto, Japan studied brain scans to identify dream imagery. They concluded that we see our dreams in the same way we see our waking world.
To analyze our dreams, we must examine how we engage in our daily activities. Are these nocturnal visions repetitions of the visual stimuli of what we see in our waking hours or are they guidance messages from outside? What do these symbols mean? How do we interpret and analyze them to give them a message?
