I remember when i was a kid the first time i watched the original "Frankenstein" movie i liked it so much i dreamed the entire movie that night. Including the credits at the end.
My dreams have also evolved as i got older. "Flying" dreams for example. At first when i was really young i used to dream of flying with wings. As i got older i would fly like Superman. Now when i dream of flying i'm in a really fast jet.
I don't have nightmares. I call them really interesting dreams. In my dreams nothing scares me. I guess its because i have control.
