What do your dreams say about you?
Is it possible that our dreams are an extension of our consciousness? Of course, no one can truly define consciousness let alone where it comes from.
Think about it: our bodies are made up of trillions of cells. All these cells bind together to form organs and tissue and bones and what not. How many cells does it take to create a consciousness? Does each cell have its own consciousness? Surely it does, for it acts in certain ways.
This begs the question: At what point does the single cell “level up” to the consciousness of the collective? How is it that, as a fully formed human, we cannot tap into the seemingly rudimentary consciousness of the cell, yet we have this greater consciousness of the collection of cells? And do our cells/organs have different consciousnesses but we don’t know because we operate solely on the consciousness of a singular organ (i.e., the brain)? Or is the brain the hub of consciousness for all our organs, cells, etc.? And, if so, is it possible to isolate each consciousness?
Back to dreams.
Our dreams, many times, seem random and odd. Often, we forget them altogether but have a fading remembrance of some sort of experience. We were conscious during that dream yet, at the same time, unconscious. So consciousness is not what we perceive it to be on the surface. It’s much more.
Your dreams are, in essence, your consciousness. Your consciousness, one can argue, is you. Your dreams are you.
