      Dream Memories

      Sometimes when I dream, I remember things in the dream. I don't know where the memories come from, because they are definitely not waking memories. I don't think they are memories from other dreams, at least not dreams I can remember. Here's an example:

      About a week ago, I had dream where I was talking to a girl named Sylwia on the phone. After talking to her for a while without knowing who she was, I remembered her. She was an orphan who I had promised to help. When I woke up, I had no recollection of ever dreaming of her before.

      Are these memories from dreams I don't remember?
      "Droymandi stígi eg innar
      inn til eitt vakurt stađ
      og eg vakni úr vakrasta dreymi
      sólin skínur aftur í dag"

      -Eivřr Pálsdóttir, Vakrasti Dreymur

      Those memories could be made up by your mind same way as the rest of the dream is.

      Or your mind recalled something you saw/read in waking life without you having conscious memory of it. Like you saw a brief news flash or read an article in newspaper, but after that, you never thought of that again, so you forgot about them. But they are still stored in our memory. I think, could be wrong, though.

      What's happening here is you are seeing the effect of your conscious mind trying to explain what your subconscious is visualizing. This happens 100% of the time but you just don't notice it mostly, it may seem weird but have a look at the dream scene itself. Often you will get into a car and drive to a place with a goal in mind but whats really happening is that your subconscious created a car or street and your conscious decided that it must be because you have to drive, at which point your subconscious randomly spews out a location as was demanded and your conscious mind assumes it to be where you want to go.
      The same logic can be applied here, you wanted to know who she was (conscious) so you randomly created a profile of the person, it only seems like you remembered her because you conscious is trying to make sense of it and will use the information it has to make an assumption.

      However it could still have been from another dream, which is highly possible but the conscious-subconscious process still stays the same.

      I actually love when that happens. It's kind of funny, in my opinion. It's like, you'll just randomly think "oh yeah, that's right, x" and even though it's all total bull, it's real and factual in the dream.

      hahha ya it's awesome reflecting on it after the dream, remembering things like "hey new-york city is completely empty, everyone must be sick today" WTH how did my brain come up with that

      I get this a lot also, and I agree with dutchraptor's idea that it's your brain trying to rationalise with itself. This is one of the many reasons why I love non-lucids just as much as lucids, it's fascinating how your brain conjures these things.
      Check out my DreamViews Podcast with OpheliaBlue!

      The best reason for having dreams is that in dreams no reasons are necessary.

      No sailor controls the sea. Only a foolish sailor would say such a thing. Similarly, no lucid dreamer controls the dream.
      Like a sailor on the sea, we lucid dreamers direct our perceptual awareness within the larger state of dreaming.

      I've experienced this and wonder about it too. What dutchraptor said sounds like a likely explanation.

      I am most certain it is a bot.

      Talking about dream memories, I tend to remember some of my forgotten dreams in my dreams when doing something in my dreams which trigger those memories. I tend to revisit the same places in different dreams too.

      Most standard dreams are are a consortium of memories from the previous day. These images occur in the secondary visual cortices as our big human brains sort out long term memory from worthless drivel . However, I can foresee the possibility of remembering a previous dream whilst in a new dream. This, however, has never happened to me (as far as I know) . Most likely you had two dreams in a row and they more or less slammed in to each other.
