No Two Dreams the Same
  • No.
  • What if they were conjoined twins joined at the brain? Or psychics?
  • The answer is no because even if two dreams have the same central theme, the person dreaming may not remember certain part of that dream, as most dreams and most details are forgotten upon awaking. All dreams are unique, even if it appears otherwise.

ANSWER

In spite of anecdotal reports of individuals experiencing "exactly" the same dream, there is no reliable evidence that such shared dreams occur, and at the present time, there is no scientific or rational method to confirm such dreams. Although two persons might describe similar dreams in great detail, dreams take place within the mind. Unlike science fiction, in reality there are no videos or scanners that can record the images seen within the mind, and so there is no way to know whether two people can dream the same dream.

ANSWER

Whether or not two people are twins, they can have dreams with the same theme, or with matching details. While it may be true that no two dreams are alike, they can be similar enough for us to take notice of an unusual occurrence.

AnswerThere are cases when two people's dreams are exactly the same. It is not unheard of. Especially if you have a bond with a person.

Of course she can sleep with her dad. It was just a bad dream and she wants some comfort. Sleeping with her dad would make her feel safe. There would be nothing wrong with letting her sleep in the same bed as her dad.

It is not likely that 2 people can have the same dream, each persons dreams are diffrent.

Everyone would basically go to sleep at the same time. The world would be like an on and off switch. Everyone will sleep then wake up.

I'm going to say that's not true since everyone dreams even depressed people have dream that are happy and happy people can have sad dreams.A different response:People who do not dream become not only depressed, but slightly psychotic. But that should not be confused with people who do not remember their dreams, and it is not quite the same as saying people who dream are less depressed. Studies by sleep researchers have shown quite conclusively that when test subjects were allowed to sleep but woken whenever they began to dream became increasingly depressed and disturbed as days passed without any dreaming. As soon as the subjects were allowed normal sleep, their emotions quickly returned to normal. The conclusion is that dreaming is important for mental and emotional health.

If theres a person in your dream that you have feelings for...it could be that that same person is having the same dream as you are.Unless it's some unicorn/rainbow sh-, you're in deep sleep.Or you could be lucid dreaming.

It could mean that you like him or he was thinking of you before he went to sleep.

it means what ever the two people dreamed about they should do it or they might keep having the same dream

It means that you only think that someone has had the exact same dream as yours. If you investigate further, you will find that the dreams are actually quite different, because each person's dreams are produced by their own subconscious mind. For example, while you both might have dreamt of black dogs, in one dream the black dog might have been sleeping peacefully, while in the other dream the black dog might have been dancing or racing or growling.> In spite of popular superstitions, there is no magical communication between two different individuals during sleep.

It means you had a dream about a couple people you liked. It's just a dream.

For the same reason people talk when they sleep. DREAMING!

This most often occurs when the dreamer has only partially woken up. The dream continues because the continuity of that particular sleep stage was not entirely interrupted. See link below for more information.

I think that this 4 year old may be having this same exact dream with the same details because she is still reminiscing the mother's death. She hasn't healed from the past hurt of her mother's death. I suggest a Christian counselor to help her heal.

Yes, two people can have the exact same face. But their age would be different. This has happened with me many times but always the ages are different.

Blind people dream about the same things as sighted persons. A visual disability does not necessarily affect one's dreams.
