Medical Dreams about familiar places and random quotes

  1. Oct 15, 2007 #1
    I had a dream in a place that I was very familiar with, but knew didn't look the same. And I also said some random quotes that I know I would never think or say in real life. Any explanation as to why dreams go so random like this and distort places/thoughts?

    Dreaming is an often studied phenomenon, so there is a lot of scientific literature on the subject. A very interesting book I read a couple years ago is called The Mind At Night:


    in which she does a nice, casual overview of the history of dream research.
