The apple is related to sex; it symbolizes pleasure and sensuality. It's the forbidden fruit, the sin that Adam and Eve committed in paradise. In oneiric terms, it reveals a desire to enjoy earthly pleasures. If it is tasty, it indicates emotional satisfaction; if it is green, difficulties; if it is rotten, frustrations. From a Freudian point of view, eating an apple is synonymous with sexual appetite. The apple, however, also represents knowledge and freedom of choice. Just what Adam and Eve obtained when they left behind their innocence. Especially if they are red, dreaming of apples is a good omen. If they are ripe and sweet, you will be rewarded; if they are sour, you may suffer losses because of your own foolishness. Apples lying on the ground predict the dishonesty of your friends. Finally, if they are rotten, all your efforts will be in vain.

Body reactions during sleep
Most of us must have experienced hallucinations or night mares. When we experience such dreams we are unable to move or react. This stage is referred to as sleep paralysis. This type of dream occurs in between wakefulness and REM. As it occurs during the REM stage, it causes complete muscle weakness preventing the individual reacting to the dreams.
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.
