So, Albus Dumbledore once said "in dreams we enter a world that is entirely our own". He would, most likely, be correct. What about nightmares though? If I willing created this world, why am I afraid of it? Or perhaps this world has been created through my innermost feelings. When ever I've had one of my dreams explained to me, they represent feelings I wasn't feeling so they must be very far in. Heck, I didn't even know I could feel such things. Dreams are also supposed to give you a message about your life. It's not very helpful if I've forgotten 90 per cent of the dream in the first minute of being awake. (That is a legit fact)
In the case of recurring dreams, they recur because the message in the dream is too important for us to forget. If you think about it, if I need this message so badly that must mean that I have no previous knowledge of the message. So how is my subconscious transferring the message to my dreams if I don't already know about it? My subconscious is me right?
I hope that made sense. It probably wasn't the best idea to write this straight after waking up. I'm so damn professional. ~Zoe
