Dreams In Sleep

I have intriguing dreams sometimes in sleep. And I would love to have these dreams, considering them as some random creative moments. In this post, I want to simply note down some dreams I had in plain words. I wasn’t looking up for scientific explanations on dreaming so as to avoid any writing tendencies(And I’m lazy. Somewhat.. yet I love to have more original and natural outcomes, before I may combine ideas and mess around with references.)

There may be terminologies for what I’m describing. If you know anything more about these or just have any ideas, free feel to leave a comment.


More oftenly, dreams happen when I’m tired, and am already on bed to sleep. My brain is still somewhat rolling inside, it does not fully rest. I feel half-sleeping-and-half-awake.

The dream contents can be anything I’m not familiar with but yet new and impressive. I wouldn’t expect to see these good things I don’t work on, but it all comes to my brain.


In the dream, I hear good symphony, with different musical instruments playing together. I can feel it’s good-and-professional listening. But I can’t tell what all musical instruments they were due to my lack of knowledge on symphony. Even now in reality I can’t tell or have some more understandings on real symphonies. There could be cello, organ, and something I don’t know.

I may question it sometimes, was that really a good melody or I just had lower standard on quality of a melody(as if the aesthetic judgment shuts off) in dreams, and felt enjoyable for poor quality sounds.

I don’t have skills to create/arrange these sounds, how do they come?
Was I somehow casually creating them in the dream? Or I was repeating/rehearing some pieces of music I heard before, which unexpectedly store in my memories?

Potentially a new song

This is similar to hearing symphony. It’s more lyrical style with singing voice(s), like hearing a pop song.

I could feel a bit of regret sometimes, as if I would’ve noted down the melody and make a new song if I’m a professional song writer. I’m not but I did dream about trying to wake up, take my phone, sing out and record what I could still remember.

Also, was that just a copy of an existing song or a new melody never heard with few similarities with other songs?

Nice visual content

This is like watching an artistic video, yet with impressive visuals. It’s random and unpredictable. I’m at the same time hoping/enjoying it to be just unpredictable. I cannot memorize and remake the visuals, but it was surely impressive.

Clear zooming-in vision

How do you feel about the image quality in your dream? Is it clear or blurred like in some film scenes?

I feel very clear in a dream sometimes. That is, I know I’m in a dream, seeing astonishing clear images just like in real life. And furthermore, the content zooms in and still looks clear. Like watching an infinitely zooming image with always clear pixels, for 1 second. The zooming lasts for short and not like it’s going infinite.

I guess.. You may not remember any images of a dream, but doesn’t mean you saw blurred things.

When in these content generating dreams, I’m in the mood of ① getting unpredictable good quality of art works from nowhere, ② enjoying, ③ hoping to enjoy more and be surprised.

Gotten-up illusion

Many times when I’m trying to wake up in a sleep, whether because I hear the alarm, or for any reasons I intent to get up.

I may have the illusion that I’m getting up – and stopping the alarm eventually. Then after a moment, I hear the alarm again, realizing the getting up process was in a dream and I’m still in bed.

This can happen for a few times, a few rounds of thinking I have gotten up but I’m not, before really getting up.

So far these are what I memorize on my intriguing dreams. I don’t regard them as good or bad things though medically or psychologically there can be different signs. Again, if you know anything more than plain descriptions, feel free to let me know and possibly help me dig into it.
