      What a strange coincidence. I just posted this dream on the dream journal website and then immediately saw how the latest comment on that site was how webdiva (the webmaster) added Google Translate to the site, LMAO.

      "Subsequently, Stephen LaBerge studied the prevalence of being able to control the dream scenario among lucid dreams, and found that while dream control and dream awareness are correlated, neither requires the other. LaBerge found dreams that exhibit one clearly without the capacity for the other; also, in some dreams where the dreamer is lucid and aware they could exercise control, they choose simply to observe." (Wikipedia - "Lucid dream".)

      "That must be very interesting effect those symbols (Was it in form of and equations?), I see it in blue colors in my imagination as I read your dream story."

      Pieces of equations, mostly, and isolated signs.

      "Thats interesting. Last night I dreamed about a car falling from space, landing in the ocean and becoming a giant sea monster. Maybe that was you "

      Well, I dream about plesiosaurs on occasion.

      Thats cool about songs. Lots of Eminem lyrics play in my head and I havent listened to Eminem in years. Except a few songs a few months ago. I wonder why the song is still there.

      I think there is a lot more to dreams and the human mind in general, but I doubt there will be too many breakthroughs in the near future. People tend to think in terms of habit and the familiar (and would likely have no reason to investigate or explore what they don't believe is there in the first place), and also do everything by habit based on personal belief. Much is denial outside of their "safe space". Some people have a natural connection, could be biological, could be something more.

      On an unrelated side note, consider how scientists supposedly (according to news reports) only just discovered the so-called interstitium in the human body and it makes me wonder how much people know about anything at all. Perhaps there is an area of the electromagnetic spectrum that no one has fully looked into yet, perhaps a sparse pattern that is not yet seen as a viable pattern. If "The Interstitium, the Largest Organ We Never Knew We Had" is true, than anything is possible, I suppose.
      I would definitely like to see them uncover more but its true that the commonly known data gets the most attention for the masses. Reminds me of how in astronomy class I've learned so much about the way our solar system and our universe works. In the lower grades they tend to simplify info or don't explain correctly, leaving many people in the dark about it. If more people know perhaps there would be more chances of discovering something new. I didn't even know about the interstitium thing before you mentioned it. That's amazing~ Would be interesting if dream sharing was because of something biological or a natural connection. I've read someone's post before where they mentioned electro magnetic I think. I still don't know much about it though so I have to look it up or watch a video about it.Yeah, thanks for telling me about your views on the topic Blue Opossum!

      Thanks Blue Opossum. I think your dream telepathy is interesting. I bet it happens to people more often but not evryone is able to confirm it as much.

      Shirley Holmes sounds like the perfect gender bender name for sherlock. Interesting how it turned out that your wife saw a game show on it too. Why do you think it happens?

      Thanks Blue_Opossum! The picture really got my attention because I HATE cigarettes. If you ever read my DJ you will see that I dream of being mad at someone for smoking a cigarette almost once per night. In my dreams it is usually weird too like someone smoking them indoors or even in my room, which I would never let happen in a million years!

      I was so happy when it said that you didn't like the smoking either! Even just the picture of the cigarette made me cringe - But I did remember to do an RC in response to the picture.

      Thanks and I enjoyed this journal entry a lot! My face is physically smiling!

      Thanks I appreciate it! I have heard of reticular activating system before so that makes sense to me now.

      Reticular Activating System, a part of the human brain (or reticular formation), which partly mediates sleep-wake transition autosymbolism between dream self and conscious self (meaning the symbolism depicts what is going on during shifts in unconsciousness as some symbolism is created to alert the dreamer in real time or force the dreamer to deal with something in the real environment), though there is more to it than that. (Herbert Silberer wrote a lot on autosymbolism, but limited it to hypnagogic states, even though for me, it dominates normal dreams as well.) I tend to also call it RAS modulation since it needs to be aggressive to pull people out of the illusion at times. As such, even in childhood, I've always seen it as a biological survival mechanism, to keep one part of the mind alert at all times (even when unconscious) in case of physical needs (such as a need to drink or to use the bathroom) or environmental issues such as the need to find the source of a noise or other concern.
