Time in a dream is easily compressed and stretched both with respect to itself, and relative to real time. The phenomenon of pseudomemory existing in a dream is very interesting. Our consciousness, having asked ourselves the question of how it turned out in this or that situation of sleep, obligingly provides an explanation for the explanation, giving them out of pseudo memory, where events and sensations that connect us with our real life are imprinted. But such awareness does not always occur, but rather is replaced by a general state of confidence in the reality of its present position, which is occupied in a dream. As in real life, we do not indulge in permanent memories, as we have appeared in the present moment of our life, but content ourselves with the common sense of deliberately verifying the logical connections of previous events, so in a dream we are not confused by the obvious, illogical in terms of real memory bias in the circumstances of the action – hybrids of houses and apartments, different cities where we lived, a mixture of countries and times where we were or who we perceived in the form of images or texts. Do not confuse us and the presence of people who, according to known circumstances, could not be combined in time and space (sometimes we dream of people who met us at different periods of life, although they could quite change and cease to exist at all, and did not have the opportunity in real life to be combined in space). In a dream, we do not think about it, carried away by the events of sleep. And at the first moment, when we start to think, consciousness tries to confirm and justify the disagreement of sleep with the “pseudo memory” of sleep, and only caught up in its insolvency, concedes and allows us to wake up. Experiences in dreams can often be stronger than in real life, and at the moment in which we experience them, can be perceived more real than those that we actually experience. In view of the unilinear nature of the course of thought, we, being carried away by the development of events in a dream, are not able to constantly critically analyze what is happening and fall easy victim of deceiving our consciousness. Time in a dream does not flow backwards, does not stop and does not slow down, because we can not imagine it. But it allows us to experience events as if outside the real-time framework, not so much as to return to the past or to be in the future, how much to experience existence in a world without time at all. Although the experiences in this dream world resemble real and there are no things that are not co-directed with the thermodynamic arrow of time,
What is the volume of human dreams? If we try to measure information passing through the consciousness, and in the reality of which we have no doubt how we do it in computers, measuring it in bytes, kilobytes, megabytes, we can say with certainty that by informative loading, dreams are not only inferior to real life, but, perhaps, even surpass it. The fact that we remember only a small fraction of our dreams, and even very vaguely, and only within the framework of revaluation with our waking consciousness, says that the world of our dreams can be no less, and perhaps even more extensive than the world of our real life. The fact that we remember only a small fraction of the dreams is balanced by the fact that in a dream we remember only a small fraction of our real life. Moreover, it can be stated that most often we remember exactly those dreams that precede awakening, and they are plot and logically always unfinished. It is when the connections are made between the real and imaginary world in the dream that the awakening consciousness awakes consciousness and the dream is remembered. It is remembered not so much the dream itself as its evaluation, plus several visual-sensual images. The rest of dreams are completely erased from our “real” memory and are released from the subconscious only in a state of hypnosis, with psychoanalysis.
