  1. 1. What’s your idea about the following statement?
    Dream interpretation is a purely technical field of science.

    1. Dreaming is the communication between our conscious mind and our unconscious mind. Sumber said: “Dreams are the bridge that allows movement back and forth between what we think we know and what we really know. Dreams reveal a person’s “deepest desires and deepest wounds.” According to this huge importance of dreaming, definitely dream which is unique for every person needs a purely technical field of science to be interpreted.

      1. That is better to say:
        1- “Dreaming is the communication between our conscious and unconscious mind.” – ” “deepest desires and wounds.” When and is used in common phrases connecting two things or people that are closely linked, the determiner is not usually repeated before the second.
        2- (As) Sumber said:“Dreams are the bridge that allows movement back and forth between what we think we know and what we really know.” (insert ” in the end)

        1. Thanks a lot for your attention and correction

    2. In fact, the Greeks and Romans were convinced that dreams had certain prophetic powers. While there has always been a great interest in the interpretation of human dreams, it wasn’t until the end of the nineteenth century that Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung put forth some of the most widely-known modern theories of dreaming. Psychoanalytic dream interpretation explains how the unconscious thoughts and emotions are processed in the mind during sleep. Freud believed that dreaming allows us to sort through unresolved, repressed wishes. Therefore, studying dreams provided the easiest road to understanding of the unconscious activities of the mind. Besides, according to Jung, dreams are a way of communicating and informing yourself with the unconscious. And, dreams are not attempts to conceal your true feelings from the waking mind, but rather they are a window to your unconscious. Moreover, new research provides compelling insights into the mechanisms that underlie dreaming and the strong relationship our dreams have with our memories and how humans remember their dreams. The scientists predicted the likelihood of successful dream recall based on a signature pattern of brain waves. Thus, these findings suggest that the neurophysiological mechanisms that we employ while dreaming (and recalling dreams) are the same as when we construct and retrieve memories while we are awake. Over the years, numerous theories have been put forth in an attempt to illuminate the mystery behind human dreams, but, until recently, strong tangible evidence has remained largely elusive.

    3. It seems to be true. Actually, dream interpretation is really close to psychology, that is, our dream could interpret psychologically. The the truth is that our dream are influenced by our internal and external environmental conditions such as business and financial concerns, stress, our childhood, fears, desires and wishes, etc. In this regard, some prominent psychologists like Freud and Jung introduced a certain frame and stringent rules in order to interpret dreams. So, if one knows them well, will be able to do it. Since this, we should conclude interpretation of dream is a technical science.

      1. correction: repeat “the” — ” The truth is that our dream …”

    1. The calm and smiling face indicate that this person have not nightmares. We can experience such a sweet sleep if we learn to have peaceful mind and this is nothing more than being our best friend.

      1. That’s right. It seems he’s having a sweet dream. ?
        Corrections: ? ?
        the face indicateS
        this person has no nightmares

        1. Thanks for your correction. I made mistakes because of not paying attention.
          On the topic, sleep is critical for the maintenance of the brain. If you do not get an adequate amount of regular sleep, there are multiple deficits. For example, sleep has been shown to be crucial for certain genetic processes, protein synthesis, and myelin formation. Without myelin, the neurons do not fire efficiently. Sleep deprivation has been shown to compromise attention, new learning, and memory.
          In addition, sleep problems are especially common among people who are experiencing anxiety or depression. Stress raises the levels of the activating neurotransmitters norepinephrine, epinephrine, and cortisol, which normally subside at night.
          Meanwhile, there are several methods for improving sleep, including exercise, proper diet, and light exposure during the day, and a cool bedroom. Exercising three to six hours before bedtime enhances sleep because it elevates the heart rate and the body temperature but also allows time to return to baseline before bedtime. Aerobic exercise has a calming and antidepressant effect that also promotes sleep.

          1. So much great information about sleep. I should thank you so much.
            ? Just remember that in the above entry, I simply copied and pasted the content in the PHOTO SCANNING activity here. That is to say, the topic of our discussion is NOT sleep, but dream interpretation.

            1. you`re welcome.
              You are quite right.:) I am sorry for speaking out of main subject. But I just mention that how we can have sweet dream like this man. I think that we should not have dreamed if some disturbing element had not come into play during our sleep, and the dream is the reaction against this disturbance. Also, having good sleep affects on our brain function that result in having sweet dreams.(calm sleep= sweet dream).

    2. Acoording to the picture , there is a smile on face of the person who is fallen in sleep.This smile is showing a satisfactory state in which he is blessed with.

      1. Accurate response, thanks a lot. ✅ ツ
        Some corrections:
        on the person’s face or on the face of the person
        who has fallen asleep / who is sleeping
        with which he is blessed / which he is blessed with

    3. If a person lives in a most suitable way, he or she won’t suffer from any nightmares; because the mind is in a good condition and is satisfied with life so he or she doesn’t have any thing to worry about which causes them to have horrifying dreams. Moreover, having good sleep with sweet dream will give us more energy to work better during day, so we can say that both dreams and the daily activities will have mutual effects on each other.

  2. 3. Are there any differences between night dreams and hypnotic dreams?

  3. 4. Do you usually read books on dream interpretation? What is your opinion on it?

  4. 5. How can we interpret our dreams accurately?

  5. 6. Do you think we can rely on people who are calimin ng that they can interpret dreams ? Have you ever refered to a dream interpreter?
