Incest

According to Carl Gustav Jung, incest symbolizes the desire for union with the essence of oneself. This is why some gods of ancient mythologies were conceived in this way. In any case, this dream is very uncommon. In oneiric terms, incest can indicate various things. The most normal is that it reminds you of the dependence you have on your mother, as well as the fear you have at the idea of separating from her. All this reveals immaturity and an inability to make decisions. It may also remind us, as Jung claimed, of our origin and the strong desire to return to it, recover our identity, and be reborn. Incest with a brother or sister represents the union of your feminine and masculine sides. (See sex ) In ancient times, this was so taboo that no books about dreams make any reference to it.

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.
