The Weight of a Dream

I had solid 152.2 pounds in me when I went to sleep last night. This morning, right after waking up, I stood on a scale and it reported 149.9. Where did the 2.3 pounds go?

Perhaps a more interesting question is, which weighs more, a good dream or a bad dream?

If you still cannot figure out the weight lost after looking at mass-density charts, stay calm - for your weighing scale is defective

A good dream: hence, The Unbearable Lightness of Being.

Dreams are suppressed emotions according to interpretation of dreams by Freud.If u dont hav any suppresed emotions unconciousely,dreams will reduce.

So that's the reason i dont hav much dreams..only dead sleep.

i also remember someone saying/reading somewhere that we tend to forget our dreams. so when you say you are having a "dead sleep" it may not be dead as you believe. you might have had some dreams but very likely that u have forgotten after you woke up.

I once read a similar thing - that we only remember the dreams that we wake up in the middle of. As dreams occur when we are in our deepest sleep, its rare that we wake up during them - we have quite a large number of dreams every night, but only remember a small fraction of them.

Would be interesting if someone invented a "dream recorder" to record all the dreams that we have.

Yes.You r right.I am little on animal side.I never allowed civilization to currupt me much.But i am civilised as animals are.Never shiezopherenic.I own less masks.

May i invent a new term 'Natural civilisation'?.It's scripture is "School boy" of Keats.
