When I dream I always can debunk it totally when I wake up later because the content makes no sense logically. For instance, i’ll dream (or nightmare) that my favorite horse is riding alone and slips and falls and her head falls off with no blood. Then I think oh no.
But of course when I start to wake up I think: Heads dont fall off when you fall, and there is usually blood involved if so. There are infiniti other examples. I think everyone dreams in this manner (not the specifics but the illogical nonsense)
Why? When someone daydreams, or at least if I do, I would at least picture the horse falling realistically, breaking its leg bone or at least having the realistic special effects. Why do our dreams lack any sort of realism or logic? I dont see why my basic understanding of body part falls off = blood would be suspended, even if my fear of my horse falling was itself not wholly rational.
