The meaning of dreams

This article provided multiple information about my genius hour question. Some of this information included that Egyptians believed that dreams meant that you possessed power. Also it stated that you don't remember a good dream because so many good dreams in one night. Good dreams, usually don't mean you get money or win a dog. Good dreams usually include not dieing or family or friends death. When you have a bad dream/ nightmare, you remember all the details. You remember this because your brain needs to work and your body is actually thinking you’re part of the dream in real life. You only have a bad dream/ nightmare ones a month.

Dreams regulate emotions and incoprate them into long term memory. Violent dreams or nightmares prepare us for real life danger.
