There was this old school philosopher in ancient China.
He’s the guy who came up with the butterfly-dream metaphor.
He was dreaming he was a butterfly.
But then he woke up.
But then he thought:
How do I know if I’m a man who was dreaming he was a butterfly, or if I am a butterfly dreaming he is a man?
Dreams have been the source of mystery since the dawn of time.
Nobody really knows, for sure, why we dream.
Joseph was kidnapped and sold into slavery in Egypt.
But the worked his way up the hierarchy, helping out the Pharaoh because of the content of his dreams.
According to basic evolution, dreams must serve a purpose.
It’s a trait that EVERYBODY has.
Must Be A Reason
Generally, when everybody around the glove shares the same trait, you can pretty much bet it was evolutionarily beneficial way back in the day.
Way back then, we didn’t have social media or TV or even books to fill our imagination.
We only had our memories.
Memories of things we’ve seen, stories we’ve heard, experiences we’ve had.
So it might be that dreams are necessary to help us extract meaning from things we experience daily.
If you’ve ever been in a car accident, it generally happens every quickly.
So much your memory of it, or at least your conscious memory, is kind of blurry.
But everything that happens goes into our subconscious.
So maybe our dreams are telling us things we should pay more attention to.
Or they are expressing our own desires and fears that we keep repressed.
As if your subconscious is saying:
“Hey! Don’t forget about this! This is important!”
If you have any type of creative job, or you are interested in any creative endeavors, your dreams can be your greatest asset.
Novel writing, any kind of storytelling, humor, music production, all these are very heavily dependent on your creativity.
T. S. Eliot referred to dreams as an “incubation chamber” for ideas.
Your drop in a few half baked ideas as you fall asleep.
Story ideas, song ideas, comedy ideas, new product ideas, money making ideas, etc.
And you wake up, and some of them are FULLY baked.
Maybe when you dream, your brain is allowed to roam freely beyond every day constraints.
To give you a much more broader perspective.
Whatever your ambitions are in life, your dreams can help.
