moved to Stuff Dreams are made of because it’s a general dream question
i believe now that dreams create false memories in order to convince us more that what we see in the dream is reality.
for example , in a dream my grandpa asked me to join him pick up a plane from the parking lot ( ) and pilot it back home.
But in my head i rememberd him doing that many times.
another example: i once crossed a railway bridge that was blocked , but in my head i said : it was better when it was open and i remeber “remembering” an image of the bridge open.
what do you think of my theory?
