How, when, why, who – there is a reason behind everything and that is exactly what’s worth sharing here. Dreams sometimes leave you numb for a day and sometimes you have no idea what you dreamt about. You can really live a whole beautiful life in a dream that you may never be able to achieve in reality. Wonder how life would be without dreams? No point. Because there can’t be any life without dreams and that’s a fact.
1. An average human being spends 6 whole years of his/her life dreaming.

2. Memory limit.
There’s a time limit to how much you can remember about your dream. Only within five minutes since you are up from your sleep, an average person’s dream is forgotten and in just 10 minutes, 90 percent of the dream is gone with the wind. However, if awakened at the REM (rapid eye movement sleep) stage, that person is more likely to remember the dream.
3. Eyes don’t matter.
Blind people can dream. People who became blind after birth can see images in their dreams and those who were born blind dream as vividly, however, instead of seeing images, they use their other senses such as smell, sound, touch etc. to dream.
4. Dream Master.
The good part is that you can often control your dreams. You can manipulate, twist and turn the beginning and the ending of your dreams like it’s a movie being shot in front of you. It is called the “Lucid dreaming” (one is aware that he/she is dreaming) phase.
5. Entry level.
Toddlers don’t star in their own dreams until they are about 3-4 years old.
6. Dreams are for everyone.
There is not one person who doesn’t dream, except those who have psychological disorders. If you think you don’t dream, it’s just that you’re forgetting your dreams.
You might not remember the person in your dream. However, a person only dreams of people he/she has encountered in life but it’s impossible to keep track of thousands of faces that you come across each day.
8. Daydreaming is a thing.
Psychologists say that daydreaming is actually what occurs if your dream has been carried forward, it is basically related to what you dreamt about when you were fast asleep. They also involve different mental processes.
It’s not only you who dreams, animals dream too just like this leopard lost in his dreamworld after eating lunch. The best example is a dog, you will often see them twitching their paws as if they are running in their dreams.
10. Hidden secret.
Dreams or nightmares related to unpreparedness, flying, falling, and public humiliation comes from common human anxieties and seems to go much beyond cultural and socio-economic boundaries.
