Dreams have been studied for many years, but they still haven't come to any conclusions as to what makes us dream. The closest they have come is to realize a person may have problems in their lives, stressed out and during sleep they don't go into a REM sleep. Also eating late at night (and believe it or not eating cheese near bedtime and other foods) can produce dreams or even nightmares. People dream every 1/2 hour (most of us don't remember the dreams) and it is said that if we didn't dream we would go mad. If we are not in a true REM sleep then we are more than likely to remember the last dream just before we wake up. If very tense and stressed out a dream can actually wake a person up. The brain is like a large circuit board and since science has not studied the brain (the least studied organ of the brain) for years they have a lot of catching up to do. Many Universities do studies on dream patterns with willing participants.

Synonyms are important in communication because if the person you are communicating with does not fully understand the meaning of a certain word, a synonym can be helpful in replacing that word with one they better understand. Example: If someone does not fully understand the word " benevolent", replacing it with the word "nice" could help he or she understand you.

What science students have to do to be good in science?

Make sure you understand what you are studying. If something is not clear to you, continue to research that point until you clear it up. You have to fully understand basic concepts before you will be able to learn about more advanced concepts, so try to learn about science in a logical sequence. You may notice at some point that you are expected to know something that you don't know. That is a clue that you have to go back to that earlier point and learn about it before you can progress.

What does it mean when you are constantly dreaming of death?

In dreams, death is a symbol of change. Constantly dreaming about death suggests that there is something in your life that needs to die so that you can move forward in a positive way. Perhaps you are in an unhealthy relationship that needs to end, or perhaps you are reluctant to give up the security of youth in order to function fully as an adult. Other details in the dreams may provide hints as to the actual meaning of the dreams.
