Re: dreams and death
Peace, Descartes, a philosopher, argued that in a dream u cant realise dat u r dreaming, cos u'll automatically wake up. dont ask why.. try n read Meditations by him to understand mo.
i believe dat dreams are made in our minds with the knowledge we have acquired in the real world, or wat we perceive as the real world when we conscious.
when we dream, occurences and scenes emerge according to our knowledge.
ie, wen we see someone in a dream, we dont use eyes as we alraedy know how dat person looks like, wen we smell fire, we know how it smells cos most of us hav smelld fire.
if u are about to do sumin dat u neva eva done in ur life before,(so no knowledge of it), in the dream the feeling about dat scene will be different and fake until u actually experience it.
any weird dreams dat occur are merely knowledge lost in the mind and which is distorted. but ur brain will acknowledge that u r dreaming crap, as it has common knowledge of reality, and like a computer, will improve confused knowledge.
that is why we must gain as much knowledge and experience on Earth, so that when we die (i believe in afterlife), we are sort of reborn in a dreamlike world commonly known as heaven and hell.
