Would it scare you, if someone else knew everything you dreamed about?

Scientists are developing a method of reading the minds of sleeping people.

It is early days, but it can already tell with 60% accuracy, using a brain scanner, which category of object (eg "trees", "structures like houses", etc) featured in the dream.

 I could see where this could be useful in the medical field, but no, I personally wouldn't want someone knowing everything I dreamed.

Scared, nah. If they were controllingmy dreams, that would be creepy.

Could be interesting. I think they would find mine boring, at least the ones I remember.

When I used to use music as a alarm my dreams would randomly break out into parties with music. I'd just slleep through my alarm dancing the morning away :)

If they want to spend the time being chased by people with knives and getting lost on the way to exams, they are welcome to a peek inside my dreams.  Although I also have dreams that are narrated and where I am multiple characters, I wonder how those would look using this approach.   

Me too! I have he most lucid dreams where I'm like.. The omnipotent
person watching everything happen, including to myself.. Like I'm a
spirit wayching. I'd LOVE to see how this worked! Would it tell me what
my dreams meant !?


There's some evidence that dreams can incorporate external cues.   A bedside alarm is going off, and in your dream you incorporate it as a siren or a fire alarm.


What if they made a dream machine, that used scents, sounds even subtle touches as cues that could be used to guide you towards certain dreams, or shape dreams once they started?   Using feedback and a neural network, until it could perfectly learn the cues needed to get you to dream that one fantastic dream about Brad Pitt in a construction worker costume that you sometimes had and would love to have more often?

As to what dreams 'mean', did you see my earlier post part way through this thread, about what science knows about dreaming?
