    It is claimed that typical person watches dreams only 25% of sleep time. What exactly in the brain triggers dreams to disappear and come again? What areas of brain are involved?

    Dreams have baffled human beings for the past several tens of thousands of years. I would imagine that it stimulates the visual cortex of the brain. I say this because the brain is incapable of recognizing a vision in the mind or something actually viewed with the eyes. I have come to believe that dreams are an essential aspect of our spiritual development and growth. It is the time that our minds are capable of opening up and communicating with the source of the universe and consciousness itself. We are more open and able to receive the necessary messages without interfering as much as we do during our waking hours.

    You're going to have to expand on that.
    I see an apple with my eyes and my brain recognises it as such.

    Really?

    Citation needed.

    Any evidence of that?
    Any evidence that there are such "messages"?
