All creatures, including humans, are parts and pieces of Nature, and Nature itself is parts without a whole. Besides, what we call life, our planet, the universe or multiverse and our notion of God are not completed in themselves. In a nutshell, all we call existence, reality, and deity remains the greatest mystery.
The source of dreams is a mysterious realm, so humans don’t usually last long in this realm. This realm is known as the subconscious mind. Despite the humans’ knowledge about the subconscious mind, its contents and how it functions remains a contested subject, especially in the academic field of philosophy and psychology. So, in this short article, a few mysterious aspects of dreams that emanate from the subconscious mind will be discussed briefly below. And this will bring about a few questions.
The first mystery is that many people can only have a specific dream once. However, a few people claim to be having particular dreams repeatedly. Thus, if this is possible, why is it only happening to a few people? Besides, can this type of dream be significant in any way?
The second mystery is that most people cannot continue a dream once they wake up during a dream. However, a few people, especially lucid dreamers who can induce their dreams while asleep, can continue to have the same dream if they wake up and go back to sleep. Therefore, if this is possible, why is it only possible for a few people? Also, can such a dream still be coherent in any way?
The third mystery is that most people usually dream about what they have done and think about in the past. Or dream about some unresolved emotions they have before they go to sleep. However, a few people claim to have the ability to dream about future life events. So, if this is possible, why is this ability given to a few people? In addition, can this type of dream be accurate with reality?
In a nutshell, the answers to the above questions remain a mystery in the academic field of philosophy and psychology. Finally, there are various myths concerning dreams in some human cultures and societies. Yet, all these myths combined are not enough to offer us a comprehensive understanding of the mystery we call dream.
