Like most animals, its symbolic meaning is versatile. On one side, it represent intrepidity and irrational bravery; on the other, it is a symbol of a lack of restraint. Given that it is difficult to fight the boar (he never gives up), the dream is indicating that if you repress your desires, your instincts will make your life impossible. Using the strength of the boar, you will be able to attain all that you wish. It represents free sexual impulse, not controlled by the conscious; that is, the libido, which is like the boar, is uncontrollable, violent, and irrational. As a negative symbol, the boar represents the oneiric personification of cruel and ruthless enemies. If in the dream the boar is captured or conquered, it portends joy and triumph.

Types of sleep
There are two types of sleep that most of the humans undergo - REM and NREM. REM refers to the Rapid Eye Movement and NREM refers to Non-Rapid Eye Movement. Every individual will alternate these two types of sleep. Non-REM sleep will occur for a short period of time in the first stage of your sleep followed by the REM sleep. Dreams occur during the REM stage, where it lasts for 20 minutes. According to a researcher, J. Allan Hobson, dreams that occur in REM stage are usually forgotten when the individual wakes up. Studies conducted on patients during sleep shows that the frontal lobes in the brain, that are responsible for storing information, are inactive during the REM stage, which is the main cause for forgetting the dreams. Studies also show that this is the stage where you have the most intense dreams.
Some people can recognize dreams while sleeping; this type of dream is called lucid dreaming. Most of the people would have experienced this type of dream atleast once in their life. You can actually control these dreams. One of the popular dreams that most of us experience is as flying in the sky; you can try lucid dream by imagining your house beside the flying aid.
