We train the brain during sleep
Those who are able to recognize themselves in a dream, better solve the problem of reality.
is the conclusion reached by psychologists Lincoln University (USA). "During sleep, we do not notice the absurdities and inconsistencies that point to unreality - explains Dr. Patrick Burke (Patrick Bourke), author of the study. - To realize that we are asleep, we must be able to distance themselves from the situation, to understand its conventionality. " In the waking state, this ability helps us to think critically - for example, to grasp the contradiction in the news report. Although difficult to learn to understand themselves, this skill is available to everyone. Authors are advised to begin with the fact that at the time of the dream to try to answer the question, this is reality or a dream to me?
