      Are dreams by their nature just as vivid as real life?

      This is a theory I have had for some time now.
      When we dream most people are normally very unconscious and only passively observe the events (in other words, a Normal Dream), and when we wake up the dreams will usually appear very vague and blurry.
      But I am wondering, could it be possible that our experience during the dream is just as detailed and vivid as waking life, just that we don't remember it very well when we wake up?
      This would explain why your dreams gradually become more and more vivid when you keep a Dream Journal - maybe they are always that vivid, but it's easier to remember them for what they actually were like if you make an effort to remember them?

      I dont know if false awakenings are counted as normal dreams , but they are usually insanely vivid and realistic.
      But yeah your theory sounds pretty decent, i think that maybe the cause for DJ to increase vividness in the dream.

      Sounds possible, because I remember dreams I've had that were insanely vivid in every sense. Sometimes I even wake up nauseous from food I ate in my dream it's as though my brain truly believed I ate it and I could still taste it. Weird stuff.


      Your whole mind is made in a special way,

      I know for sure that some dreams or dream parts are vague and others are vivid. The reason why I know this is that I remember one dream I had which I perceived as vague and then all of a sudden something happened and I realized that everything around me was much clearer, and this was not a lucid dream but rather a dream during which I was not paying attention and then something caught my non-lucid attention (I was in danger from a helicopter), and alas I woke up before becoming lucid in that dream but before i woke up it became so vivid that i actually moved out of the way of the landing helicopter after waking up because of how vivid it had been a moment ago. I also remember from years before when I was lucid dreaming that some dreams were kind of blurry unclear, but when I became lucid all of a sudden they became as vivid as reality and maybe even more so.

      Coincidentally, a couple of weeks ago, I asked myself, "Why don't I get lucid every night if dreams are so fuzzy and unrealistic?" My subconscious immediately replied by creating an incredibly lifelike dream where Air Force One crashed into my neighborhood, went up in a mushroom cloud, Obama died, and Joe Biden became president of the United States. Since then, I have not doubted the clarity of my dreams, however, I do think some dreams are blurry and lack detail, and that we still believe it is real life because of false dream memories.
