When we sleep, our dreams often run wild. Whether or not you remember the full story the next morning, odds are you remember a general feeling you felt during the dream.
But even though we all dream, there are some things you probably didn’t know. Sort of like, “behind-the-scenes” of dreams, if you will.
These are some interesting facts that will most likely shock even the biggest dreamer out there.
Deaf people do not hear in their dreams, but there are still communications had.
“I never actually see people signing or speaking,” Gabriel Paulone, a student at Washington D.C.-based school for the deaf, Gallaudet University, said. “It is as if we use extrasensory perception (ESP). It is like we share similar language without having to say something.”
Deaf dreamers experience dreams where either everyone knows sign language, or through telepathy.
“It’s really cool” Violet Blake said. “It’s only in my dreams that I feel that we are all communicating universally.”
When you dream, your brain doesn’t just shut down. Your sub-conscience is honing skills, such as problem-solving, while your body recharges. If you study before you go to sleep, your brain can help retain the information and sometimes even teach you through dreams!
