Dreaming in the Dark
Visually impaired people dream too. Those who lost their sight later in life can see visual images in their dreams. However, dreams don’t have to be visual. Blind people who don’t dream visually can experience dreams through sound, smell, and touch.
We can only dream of faces of real people we have encountered, but we might not remember because people usually see hundreds of faces in a single day.
Between 18 and 38 percent of people say they have experienced at least one precognitive dream and 70 percent have experienced déjà vu.
According to psychologists, daydreaming may be related to dreams that occur during sleep. However, they involve different mental processes.
Forget About It
Within five minutes of waking, half of the average person’s dream is forgotten, while 90 percent is forgotten in just 10 minutes. However, people are more likely to remember their dreams if they’re awakened during the REM stage.
