Weapon

Possessing a weapon denotes personal insecurity. You are not trusting yourself or your own strength to cope. If the oneiric weapon is fired, it shows a marked tendency to solve problems aggressively. Although you have a lot of energy, you are using it for negative purposes. The dream is an invitation to stop considering life as a constant struggle. Arms also express anger, resentment, and conflict. When used against someone you know it means that you hold emotions such as anger or rancor. Perhaps you do not dare to speak frankly with that person. In case you do not know such individual, it may represent undesirable aspects of yourself: you are having internal problems that need to be resolved. Furthermore, swords, arrows, knives, pistols, and daggers are phallic symbols denoting male sexual aggression. Dreaming of weapons is an indication of ferocity and honor. Holding them with your hand is an omen of glory and success. Making them represent convalescence and recovery of energy. To see someone armed fleeing portrays a probable victory. Watching the latter person getting away means safety; the dreamer has nothing to fear. A fired shot predicts unexpected profit.

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.

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.
