Cypress

Although it has a long life, it is the tree of cemeteries. Its image has to do with death, but also with eternity. It symbolizes the passage of time, death, and the beginning of perpetual existence. It represents the transition from the physical life (perishable) to the spiritual life that lasts forever. In the Middle Ages, it was considered a sign of welcome. A pilgrim who felt well taken care of in a monastery would plant a cypress at the entrance, so other pilgrims could tell that in that place they would be welcome. Thus, we can say that its symbolism is very complex.

Longevity

The amount of sleep that a person gets will be associated with his or her lifespan. However, the causes or effects are still vague, as illnesses can also affect a person's sleeping pattern. According to a 2010 study, women under the age of 50 to 79 only get less than five hours of sleep every night, which makes them a subject for death occurrences.

Do blind people dream?

Dreams in blind people depend on the nature of their blindness. Individuals who have born blind will not have visual dreams instead they have night mares, most of them revolving around their challenges faced during the day. They experience dream through their sensory inputs like touch, smell, noise and emotions. People who were blinded after birth can experience visual dreams based on the visions or images that they have seen.
