Counting Sheep? No, Counting Brillenschaf, Gotland, And Dorper Sheep

739 words - 3 pages

No one is able to definitively prove how and why we dream, nor its primary function; nonetheless, it is a living and fundamental component of human life. This process provokes many feelings and emotions both in and out of sleep, depending on the dream type being experienced. People encounter six primary dream categories: lucid and trippy, nightmare, sexual, recurring, progressive, and common.

An omened, wicked apparition could prepare to reap and mercilessly butcher its paralyzed victim.
When awaking from a sexual dream, one usually wishes he or she could instantly go back to sleep and pick up from the last remembered thought. The most painful of dreams to part with, sexual dreams only occur every so often, much less than the average individual would prefer. They encompass thoughts of that petite yet curvy brunette perfection or that rugged gentleman with designer stubble and piercing, smokey grey eyes, both which can never be obtained; and for those in a relationship, perhaps a cherished loved one.
