“Amazing Dreaming Science” by Steve Novella is a well researched and updated medical book. I’ve read the book several times and have enjoyed it. The reason I like it so much is because of all the science that is in it.
The main point of the book is to raise new questions about our modern culture, and its effects on our thinking. Science has changed us, we’ve gotten so used to treating people, and then watching them die, and then slowly growing old, that we forget what the purpose of life is.
It’s this reality that we dream of things that will give us purpose. But the Dreaming Science book isn’t just another book in the field of dreams or mental health.
It’s a book for anyone, who wants to dream, and want to become better at dreaming. It’s a part-time, self-help book, that helps you visualize your dream in your mind. That’s how you get more out of your dreams.
But you must be aware of the dream and take control of it, or it won’t work. Novella uses the example of sleep paralysis, in which he sees visions of “spirits” fighting each other inside his head. They try to control him, but he can’t. He fights back, he throws them off, and then they win.
It’s a dream, but if he goes to bed and sleeps through the episode, he’ll remember the dream all the same. In another instance, he meets a girl, in a dream, who tells him she is being attacked by a “demon”.
She tells him not to fight it, because it’s only a dream and will return to sleep while he sleeps. He comes to realize he was dreaming about the same thing, but with a slight change. The next day, he gets up and confronts the “demon”, and she’s there waiting for him.
The dreams are so powerful, that they can force the person into what is happening in reality. Novella’s dream is a metaphor for our ability to take control of our dreams and use it to become better at our mental health.
Because he was in a state of sleep paralysis, he didn’t realize that what he was experiencing a dream. The dream became a reality because he allowed it to. Another strange thing about dreams is that we are open to them in certain states of mind.
For example, if you are eating a good meal, and you begin to feel a mood shift coming on, your mind goes blank, and you don’t see anything. However, your mind can still dream and get visions in your mind. One of my favorite dreams came to me when I was about to board a plane and looked up and saw a cloud.
That was such a strange dream, that I still vividly remember it. There was this feeling of foreboding about going to this strange place and meeting a stranger. The strange place was far away, but I could only see it through my sleeping eyes.
I felt sort of “buzzed” with this strange sensation but didn’t see anything and didn’t know what was happening. I think it was that feeling of being “out of my mind” that gave me the feeling that the flight was getting closer.
So, you don’t have to believe everything you’re told by a friend, a friend in your dream, a teacher, or even crazy dreams that make you laugh. They are all lies, but the dreaming science book explains why they happen, and why you can dream about them.
