Nationality: Iranian

Question 1

What dream means to you?

Dreams are different thoughts and life experiences stored in the brain over a long period of time, and when you dream all of them come together and create an alternate reality of life or shows something that could be in the future. It could make you change your views reflecting current events in your life.

Question 2

How often do you dream?

Depending if I’m more tired than usual and have a deep sleep, then I won’t remember my dream, but occasionally I would remember it and it adds up 3-4 times a week.

Question 3

How do you usually feel while you are dreaming?

(E.G. scared, harry, curious.)

A mix of different emotions depending on the dream, and what I see.

Question 4

Do you see nightmares?

Yes but again depending on the period of my life and what’s going on, sometimes I see the bad things that happen or could happen in my life in that period.

Question 5

Do you follow your dream in a real life?

Well again depending on the dream, if it makes sense and it reflects current event and the current period in my life, then maybe, but if it’s something ridiculous like jumping off a bridge then no I don’t think so.

Question 6

Can you always tell a difference between dreams and reality? Do you always realize that you are dreaming?

Not always, and this is always strange as I often wake up expecting to see what I saw in my dream in reality. And there are times when I wake up in the middle of the night about to do something relating to my dream that I just had.

Question 7

 Have you ever seen recurring dream?

Yes, it would always be the same situation where I’m in a dark room sitting on the opposite end of a long table opposite a strange dark like figure in a suit with a hat partially covering his face. It is a strange dream and I still have this dream to this day at least once a month.

Question 8

Do you think people control their dreams?

Again depends on the actual dream, you could maybe control things but it would be very limited and maybe like picking up and object or something.

Question 9

Do you feel more safe in your dream rather than in a real life?

Again depending on the dream, yeah if you’re in a comfortable situation surrounded by people you know and if it’s a type of dream you don’t want to wake up from, then sure you feel safe. Obviously if it’s the exact opposite you clearly don’t, dreams were you’re drowning you literally don’t breathe even in reality and it very rarely can cause death, which obviously is not very good for you and would cause a lot of pain, crying and heartbreak.
