      When does it count as one dream?

      Well, when does a dream count as one dream? What seperates several dreams?
      When a complete conversion occurs; Change of environment, "storyline" :p and your own personal goals in the dream?

      Or how do people figure?
      Wait, what?

      Good question! I'm not sure, maybe it is the story and theme that you are saying?

      I'd say a dream is everything until you wake up or go into non-REM sleep. It's hard to define, but just everything until you stop experiencing the dreamworld. I wouldn't draw the line at a change of scene.

      I separate my dreams by true awakenings. If I have a false awakening, I still consider it the same dream as before.

      Nah, I see it as REM periods.

      Like if a REM period ends, that is the end of a dream. If you wake up then go back to sleep and re-enter that same REM period, then it is the same dream. So I say when you DEILD chain, they are all the same dream.

      For me... if different events are "chained together", even if the scenery changes, that's one dream. I can usually tell when one dream changes to another.

      when the REM cycle period ends - it is separated by a darkness.
      The veil of the forgetfulness is sometimes here too.

      You end up experiencing the dreamworld in a new dream, or end up waking up to this world.

      How about if I watch two weird balls floating around like I'm watching a cartoon, and then one of the balls shoves itself down into Herbert the pervert's throat; And suddenly I'm trying to sell a vacuum cleaner to this old man, crawling around in a house with carpets covered in tons of dust.

      Would this count't as one dream?
      Wait, what?

      Can't tell, cause really its hard for us to tell if you started a new REM period or not.

      It is possible that the dream scene just changed, or you were teleported, you know, stupid things. any sort of weird things can happen in dreams, so really you are the only person that can know, only if you have perfect perfect memory of the dream.

      Though strange and pretty random , I believe it to be the same dream. Dreams tend to have these crazy scene changes quite often. It really depends on how YOU want to count them though. I separate my dreams by true awakenings, other seem to separate their dreams by REM cycles. If you want to separate them by subject/scenes, go ahead, but you may find that your dream totals are overwhelming .

      I guess it's too soon for me to count my dreams - I believe my recall sucks donkey arse, and I have this feeling of that I only actually remember fragments of the one dream I have before waking up.
      Oh well, good thing I've begun with a dream journal.
      Wait, what?
