7 Interesting Facts About Dreams
A leading website got in touch with Alice Robb, who is the author of Why We Dream: The Transformative Power of Our Nightly Journey to understand the possible reason behind it. The author explained that our dreams enable us to process our fears as well as anxieties. It helps us prepare for events that can cause stress in our lives. And interestingly, we mostly dream about things that have been relevant for ages, since the time of our ancestors. And with mobile phones being a more recent development, we don't see it in our dreams. Therefore our dreams are more about escaping a threatening situation than about reading, writing or your 'mobile phone'. Now coming to the more shocking part - the data about mobile phones not appearing in the dreams isn't exactly accurate. A set of researchers found out that almost 3.5 per cent of women dream about mobile phones and a mere 2.6 per cent of men dream about it too. It is not a huge number clearly, but most people see lesser new innovations like mobiles, computers, aeroplanes in their dreams.
