Dream World

Dream World
What are dreams?
  • Dreams are successions of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep. The content and purpose of dreams are not definitively understood, though they have been a topic of scientific speculation and a subject of philosophical and religious interest throughout recorded history.
  • Dreams can last for a few seconds, or as long as 20 minutes. People are more likely to remember the dream if they are awakened during the REM phase. The average person has three to five dreams per night, but some may have up to seven dreams in one night. The dreams tend to last longer as the night progresses. During a full eight-hour night sleep, most dreams occur in the typical two hours of REM. ~Wikipedia
I find, that in my personal life, dreams are triggered most usually by events that take place within my every day activities or within that area that I may have involvement in.  As an example problems or challenges experienced by my family can affect my dreams.  It’s not unusual for a solution to come to me in a dream.
I assisted one of my daughters yesterday in replacing a car tire that was damaged running over a broken side mirror.  We had no idea that it was damaged by a broken mirror until the tire store told me that they had found the culprit that tore the sidewall of the tire.  Fortunately the tire was new enough that the replacement cost of the tire was a mere $12 dollars (thanks to Road-Hazard Warranty).  I am most often the point man for the family when it comes to matters of cars, or warranties (I am considered a great consumer, and near diplomat).  I consider it typical that one of my dreams last night dealt with vehicle problems.
In my dream I was driving a 36 foot recreational vehicle, and while maneuvering in a Mall’s parking lot, I backed into a small car.  In this dream sequence approximately 2 days lapsed.  I got out of my RV (I don’t own one and have no plans to buy one), and apologized to the individual.  I immediately shared my information, and made a special request.  I explained that my deductible was $1000.00 and that if the damage was within a few hundred dollars, I would prefer to pay cash for his repairs.  The accident was definitely what you would consider a “fender bender.”
The other car owner agreed and we made an appointment to visit a reputable collision repair shop of his choice the next day, and the estimate came in at just under $1000.00.  With the cost determined, I offered to write a check for the agreed amount, and he in turn signed a statement of the agreed upon arrangement releasing me of further liability.  Problem solved.  The funny thing is that, that night I fell asleep after watching the Tonight Show with Jay Leno about five minutes after midnight.  I woke up out of my dream at 12:45 am (forty minutes later and two days had lapsed in my 40 minute dream.
After going back to sleep, I continued on a road trip in the nice new Recreational Vehicle that I don’t own in real life.  By the way, a nice little vacation was enjoyed by all, including my Toy Poodle.  I still don’t understand why I had to be involved in the fender bender, but the reality is that I don’t explain them I just dream them.  The best is yet to come….
