Why do dreams blend realistic and nonsensical images?

David Kahn, PhD researcher and instructor at Harvard University Medical School, Boston, answers that question:

“When we sleep, some areas of our brain become more active while others become inactive. Thus, we’re able to access certain realistic memories and images, but we can’t always make the logical associations that go along with them. The nonsensical images in our dreams are our brain’s attempts to fill in these missing pieces.”

Nonsensical images may be only nonsensical at first. But, if this happens to be a dream in which God is attempting to send you a message, then you will no doubt discover after further consideration, that the nonsensical was symbolic. Once you understand what the symbolism represents, you then begin to understand the dream’s meaning for you.

Another thing to keep in mind is that a lot of mystery still surrounds this whole subject of dreams. That is why people, like Dr. David Kahn at Harvard University, continue to study dreams and dreamers. It is entirely possible that some dreams don’t make any sense because they don’t, and some are nonsensical because they are! In other words, maybe your stomach is upset because of something you ate before going to bed and that’s the cause of a silly, dumb or stupid dream.

Personally, I wouldn’t get too concerned about a nonsensical dream because there could be so many reasons for it. But, before I brushed it off, I would pray and ask God if there’s any kind of a message there, just in case. The good news is, if it was too symbolic for you and you need to hear it again, the message will come in a different dream. And, next time, it may be easier to interpret. God is Good and He’ll give you more chances to hear what He’s saying. “Sweet Dreams” Ruthanna
