Cobwebs spun by spiders could symbolize the trap in which you find yourself in real life. It also represents loneliness, lack of communication, and disputes. On the other hand, if the spider in your dream has woven a beautiful web that you admire upon contemplation, it is a sign that the forces of the universe are in your favor to help you in your projects. Lastly, dreaming that the cobwebs are invading your home reveals that the nostalgia frequently takes over your mind, which impedes you from enjoying the present. You are too worried about events of the past and your energy is dispersed in things that cannot be changed.

What is a dream?
Dream is defined as a series of thoughts in the form of images that occurs in one's mind during sleep. It is a natural process that everybody undergoes in his life. Researches have found that people dream several times a night, each of the dreams lasting about 20 minutes. It is also found that a man spends 6 years of his life in dreaming.
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.
