Going back and reflecting

I love it when subjects overlap;-). In my psychology class this semester, we discussed the current science story on dreaming and REM sleep. Personally, I have day dreams and night dreams- non-REM dreams and REM dreams. In my class, we learned that REM dreams are currently thought to have a great deal to do with memory and information storage much more than the fantasy theory that Freud proposed. I think that when I imagine things I am both conscious and unconscious, but when I dream in REM sleep I am probably unconscious.
