Question: Why do my dreams feel so real?

Dreams feel so real, Blagrove says, because they are a simulation. This is because dreaming could have evolved as a form of threat simulation and that in order to “practise what its like being in the world while asleep – you have to believe that the simulation is real”.

What does it mean when your dream feels real?

Lucid dreams are when you know that youre dreaming while youre asleep. Youre aware that the events flashing through your brain arent really happening. But the dream feels vivid and real. You may even be able to control how the action unfolds, as if youre directing a movie in your sleep.

Why are my dreams always so realistic?

We tend to dream more during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, when the brain is most awake. If you wake up during REM sleep, it can also, apparently, make it feel more realistic.
