Poet William Blake stated that "progress is the punishment of God." The life' path is a personal experience that often involves gradual loss of childhood's values. Age-related dreams can have several different meanings. Dreaming that you are younger indicates the need to review the past. Some aspect of childhood or adolescence that has not been settled is emerging now. However, if you dream of being older than you currently are, you may be anticipating events. In this case, the unconscious is reminding you to live day by day, intensely, without thinking too much about the future. Dreaming of senior citizens reports good luck. If you grow older, a failure is announced. If it's a friend who gets older the dream tells that she will let you down. Dreaming of young people, however, is a sign of family reconciliation and favorable time for launching new companies. Dreaming that you become young again predicts you will make great efforts to regain lost opportunities. If a mother dreams that her adult child is a baby again the dream announces healing of old wounds and revival of youthful hopes.

Do animals dream?
Research conducted by various scientists show that animals do experience dream while sleeping. They also experience similar sleep stages like human beings - REM and Non-REM. If you have noticed a dog sleep, it might sometimes wag its tail, this indicates some response to its dream. A study was conducted in a cat by removing a part of the brain stem, which will not prevent it from reacting to the dream during REM. It was noted in some cats they were aggressively chasing mice as in reality.
Improving memory can be done in a number of ways, and one of those is by having a good night's sleep. During sleep, your mind is still busy and going through the process of consolidation, where it strengthen your memories as well as the "practice" skills, which you have learned while you're awake. According to the associate professor at NYU Langone Medical Center, Dr. Rapoport says that something happens while we are all sleeping, and it helps us learn things better. Thus, if you're trying something new, you can perform it better right after you sleep.
