Dreaming that you look at old photographs denotes a very strong link with the past and a pessimistic attitude on life. However, photographing a person evidences positive feelings toward her. If you are in a photo the dream can have the same interpretation as in MIRROR. The photograph, on the other hand, may represent your thoughts or ideas. Perhaps, it alerts you of something that requires your attention. The content of the photograph may tell you what it is. The oneiric superstition establishes that this dream warns against false hopes you may have about something. It can also mean heartbreak, especially if your image is photographed.

Body reactions during sleep
Most of us must have experienced hallucinations or night mares. When we experience such dreams we are unable to move or react. This stage is referred to as sleep paralysis. This type of dream occurs in between wakefulness and REM. As it occurs during the REM stage, it causes complete muscle weakness preventing the individual reacting to the dreams.
Do animals dream?
Research conducted by various scientists show that animals do experience dream while sleeping. They also experience similar sleep stages like human beings - REM and Non-REM. If you have noticed a dog sleep, it might sometimes wag its tail, this indicates some response to its dream. A study was conducted in a cat by removing a part of the brain stem, which will not prevent it from reacting to the dream during REM. It was noted in some cats they were aggressively chasing mice as in reality.
