A Parallel Universe

The dreams we often have while asleep are extraordinarily vague and include thoughts, images, scenarios and even some of the emotions we might be experiencing. Taking into consideration the enormous amount of time we spend dreaming, the fact that researchers are unable to identify the purpose of dreams may seem mystifying. Although, there are a few theories that might account for the occurrence of our vivid dreams.

Google suggests that dreams are the result of our brains trying to interpret external stimuli during sleep. Another source exhibits a theory which claims that dreams serve to ‘clean up’ clutter from the mind, like a computer, to prepare for the next day.

A few weeks ago, I heard an appealing psychological fact, stating that the dreams we witness are indeed a co-existing parallel universe. This fact left a mark in my mind, as recently I have been having dreams about myself having the perfect desired life, as I would like to think everyone should have. Dreams about having a greener and safer environment, having the perfect job and the perfect family.

Knowing that a parallel universe might exist somewhere in the multiverse, gives me a sense of hope that there is a safe and happy place for people. Visiting the parallel dimension would be a magnificent possibility. Although this might not be as realistic, using science and acquiring the knowledge might make it acquirable, which I believe is achievable in the future.
