Scientists Managed To Talk To People In Their Dreams
According to scientists, it is possible to communicate with people who sleep and dream. And this communication is not one - sided.
From time to time, when people are in a dream, they can realize that they are in a dream. This condition is called lucid dreaming. According to scientists, it is possible to communicate two-way with people who are lucid dreaming. So when you talk to these people, you get answers.
In experiments conducted separately from each other in the United States, France, Germany and the Netherlands, people were asked simple questions while they slept. People who slept gave certain answers by moving their eyelids or changing their facial expressions.
Communicating while dreaming
Karen Konkoly, a doctoral student at Northwestern University and lead author of the study, said in a statement, "We have known since the' 80s that lucid dreaming people communicate with the outside of their dreams through these signals. 'Can we communicate too?'we wondered if. Could we communicate by asking people questions that they could actually hear and answer in their dreams?" said.
The study, published in the journal Current Biology, examined the rapid eye movement stage, the stage in which people dream most intensely. In this sleep, called REM sleep, all the muscles except the eyes of people are almost paralyzed. A person who becomes lucid in a dream turns his eyes to the right or left. This, in turn, helps scientists understand that Dreamers are trying to communicate.
Lucid dreaming is not easy
Although almost everyone dreams, lucid, dreaming is not something everyone can do. The researchers also worked with participants from people who had previously experienced and experienced this condition. Participants were also given lucid dream training.
Participants were asked, " how many remains if it goes from eight to six?"such simple questions were asked. Participants who answered these questions, for example, looked to the right twice. In 158 attempts, the proportion of correct answers was 18%. It was not clear whether the 18% group also answered questions. 61% of respondents had no reaction.
This research is expected to pave the way for new studies to study and make sense of dreams. By finding more accurate and more effective communication methods, groundbreaking developments can be experienced in this area.
