View Full Version : Can you read in your dreams?
I heard that you can't read in your dreams as dreaming is a function of the left side of the brain and reading is function of the right side (or the other way arround :o ).
I distinctly remember reading in one of my dreams, but I may be wrong... Have any of you ever read something in your dreams?
i think thats just a myth like that dreams are in black and white, or that u cant "feel" pain.
u cant really "read" in real life either. the brain just recognises combinations of letters that uve learned before. and u still can recognise letters and symbols in a dream. so if u dream that u see a sign, then u can defenetly dream that u recognise the letters on it.
its the same with the pain thing. u cant feel real pain but u can imagine what pain feels like in a situation and therefor dream that ure in pain even though ure not in real life while sleeping. thats what i think about this question at least. proove me wrong if u dont agree :wve:
And the weirdest thing is that I always read in other languages than portuguese.One time,i had this sensation I was reading in perfect german,a complete unknown language to me.
But the more excentric thing was the feeling that I not only was reading a *that thing where music notes are* as I had also composed a whole melody.I almost could listen to it,it was really strange!
I've dreamt I was reading before. I was reading strange ancient scrolls and things like that, but it was still reading.
Im not sure, i hardly ever dream, and when i do i dont usually remember or they involve a zombie outbreak lol.
Yes, I have read many times in my dreams, sometimes strange languages, other times notes with directions and such :)
Does anybody try to get to sleep, and your just about to get into a deep sleep, when your body just shakes and you feel like you've been on a swing? It's really weird. It's not like someone walking over your grave. It's different.
You mean when you get startled awake? Yeah that sometimes happens to me, I'll twitch suddenly and feel like I'd just toppled over backwards onto my bed.
I do think I've read things in my dreams before, but always stuff like signs and notes rather than books or magazines.
I've most certainly read in my dreams. Many, many, many times. I'm a big reader in everyday life, so, naturally, my mind incorporates that into my sleep.
Many times! :D
