^I don't know enough about hypnosis to have one. Why do you ask?

i've read that through hypnosis a person can learn to have better dreams. hypnosis doesn't work worth a darn for me and reportedly a majority of those on the autism spectrum.

Why do my dreams disappear? Where's my dream about 2 red houses in a swamp? Did it get deleted for some reason?
Or is there another thread with a very similar name, and I got lost?

Claradoon, there is an identically titled thread but with a poll at the top, have you tried looking there, it isn't too far removed in post rank than this one, it should turn up within the next line or so in fact.

Interesting, I think I'd need a great deal of trust to even try it. I would say I don't recall much of the vast majority of my dreams. I like to think dreaming is our way to simulate dangerous situations like training simulations to gain experience in situations that would normally be deadly or simply emulate skill building during down time. Likely a very useful thing for primitive humans to fail without deadly consequences.

The modern mind has a lot of information to use. I imagine it would have been far more useful with much less useless information to use. If you do a new activity and do it often, I have noticed I will often dream about said activity. For instance, if I pick up a new game and start playing it a lot, I might dream about it.

Try thinking of it like this. When your brain goes to imagine a dream it has infobesity so the randomness is very high, but from time to time it might put together a somewhat useful simulation. Try thinking about what a more primitive brain would conjure up. Its reality has much less knowledge and it's daily activities would include activities that help it survive.

lately the lions' share of my dreams have just been a melange of my history and current events.

i dreamt i was a teenager again but in a different time and place. a few years earlier than what was the case for me, i was of age in what looked like the late 60s around 1969-1970 judging by the surroundings. i looked in the dream how i looked in real life, dressed in all black with a black stocking cap and long shoulder-length hair. i was in a city by the beach, reminiscent of sunset boulevard towards the beach terminus.

I had a really creepy dream last night.

I dreamt that my mom and I were investigators who looked for missing children and tried to solve cases. (I actually work with my mom but the work isn’t that interesting. Lol) We were mostly looking for bodies, and there was never any hope of finding the child alive. In the dream, we found the remains of two little girls. It was a depressing but almost routine part of the job.

When we were in this secluded area near a sinister looking house looking for yet another child, I thought I saw what could be a corpse on the ground and saw turquoise beads which I knew that the girl had been wearing when she was last seen alive, but as I was walking towards the body, this evil sense of foreboding swept over me, and I said, “We need to leave!”

So we rushed to the car and backed away because there wasn’t room to turn around. As we were backing up on an old covered bridge (which isn’t easy to do), I saw the ghost of a little girl following us. She had long blonde hair and was wearing a cream colored dress or nightgown. It was all very vivid. Then I woke up.

Creepy and weird!
