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

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.

There are people who do not need to know my dreams, outside of that I would not be afraid of others knowing but I am leary of the technology and how it could morph.

That would NOT be cool on an 'everyday' basis.  But, I have some NASTY nightmares, and if them "reading" my nightmares could help provide clarity and thereby ELIMINATE those nightmares?  I'd like that.

Quoting crazytexan:

That's that I was about to post. Been having Stephen King type nightmares for as long as I can remember.



Quoting Donna6503:

It would probably scare them more than me. (I'm use to em now)

I have very vivid and often weird dreams.  Good luck to anybody that wants to figure out that hot mess.

Yeah, sometimes nasty dreams are embarrassing enough without anyone knowing em.

I will continue to keep my subconscious private, thank you very much lol.

Quoting Fazed:

I think it's interesting how people think there is so much meaning within a dream. It isn't a window into your subconscious. Your brain doesn't just magically shut off when you sleep. It is still working, and it pulls memories out of files to create these dreams. Obviously the more creative of a mind you have the more bizarre the dream will be, or complex.

No one can actually know what you are worrying about via your dreams. You can say all you want that teeth falling out means you are stressed, all you want... but there is no proof to it. It's just fun to think about and usually makes people feel better about having the dream.

So really, being scared of something so silly, is well... silly.

Quoting romalove:

I think it's interesting the people who think their dreams are meaningless or silly and therefore they don't care.

Aside from the fact that this is a window on your subconscious, you don't know how much you are dreaming that you are not remembering, and how not silly and telling those things may be.

I would not be OK with others interpreting my brain waves to decide what I am dreaming/thinking/worrying about without my conscious say-so.

The entire idea is scary to me.
