The labyrinth represents obsessions without solution and vicious circles that often weigh us down. If you dream of this figure, it means that you have doubts and indecision. It could be a reference to lack of experience or immaturity. If you manage to escape the labyrinth, maybe you will resolve your problems. In the case that someone accompanies you in searching for the exit, the dream warns that you must be careful of your alliances. If you rescue others from the labyrinth, the dream is positive and means you are in control of your life. In mythology the labyrinth is a place of transformation where destructive tendencies of nature are overcome. A classic example of this is the myth in which Theseus and Ariadne emerge victorious from the labyrinth of the minotaur.

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.
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.
