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.

Would they be doing it without my permission?  I dunno...sometimes I wish people COULD see my dreams so they'd be easier to describe.

Hmm. Interesting. I would be interested to see what I dream about when I don't remember them.

It would be a little creepy especially if they asked me about them all the time...but oh wells....I don't remember my dreams ever really anyways.

this but it would be cool if I could see my dreams.imagine how much you could learn about yourself

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.
