If you could look into other people's dreams, what would you see? Are there clear scenes and environments or just chaotic colors and sounds?
The idea may sound impossible, but the scientists surprised everyone by making it a reality. They are about to record the dream and then everyone can know each other's dreams. So, how do they capture unconscious thoughts?
In 2017, researcher Daniel Oldis discovered a way to convert dreams into digital information. While his team is excited about understanding the nature of dreams , others worry about the meaning of dreams when converting numbers.
A dream is an attempt by the human brain to understand how neurological activity takes place during sleep.
People often spend about two hours a night dreaming, spanning between five or six dreams; but we forget about 95% of those dreams within seconds of waking up.
As a result, every morning, we try to put together bizarre stories, trying to understand their meaning. Over the years, many studies have tried to uncover the mysteries of why people often dream.
According to Insh, Harvard psychiatrists J. Allan Hobson and Robert McCarley expressed the view that the dream is the human brain's attempt to understand how neurological activity plays during sleep.
According to Daniel Oldis, the best way to record and observe a dream is to attach electrodes to a person's hands , feet, or chin during sleep. When people fall asleep deepest, the brain emits nerve impulses.
They reflect the body movements in dreams. The electrodes then measure, collect information and link it to the image that mimics the movements of the drowsy object.
The team also used six electrodes on the mouth and throat of an object to be able to decode speech. Oldis tried to record dreams, body movements and images in the dream by touching the brain's visual system.
He believes that in the next 10 to 20 years, people can use this technology to stream the content of their dreams to a computer or smartphone and play back in the morning.
However, the problem that many people worry about is if someone tries to hack those specifications then what will happen?
They will probably hold some confidential information you do not want to disclose. From there, they will take advantage, threaten you, or can blackmail you.
So perhaps the best place to keep everyone's dreams is still the head. Perhaps we should find a way to control our dreams instead of recording and decoding them.
