Awareness of the Process of Dreaming
Every night our bodies shut down for physiological reasons but our consciousness persists and people have different levels of awareness of this experience, which we call dreaming. The focus of the dreaming project is to increase our scientific knowledge surrounding the dreaming experience. We are gathering statistics from people like you pertaining to the different types of dreams you are experiencing and the different qualities and characteristics of the dreams themselves. This is the first time statistics of this sort have been gathered.
The focus is not what the content of the dream means. It is not a dream interpretation program.
We are answering questions like:
- Do people remember their dreams?
- Are dreams different for different genders, ages, or locations?
- Are people aware that they are dreaming, within a dream?
- Are there common themes in dreams during various life events?
