The Most Common Recurring Dreams as Experienced by Human And Why We Have Them

Most Common Recurring Dreams

Truth be told, recurring dreams are necessarily not the common types that people do have, rather the most remembered ones, and frequently talked of. This probably is due to the recurrence of those types of dreams, putting them into the memory of such set of dreamers as the recurring dreams underlying purpose. In case a dream keeps coming to one’s memory, the reason is that it is attempting to call for your attention. This is a very specific thing.
Considering the economics of the mind of man, carrying some emotional situations often turn to such recognizable figure that has worked prior. And this is commonly experienced in the forms of recurring dream. Now, just flash back to recall those dreams (such as being chased, naked in public, falling, etc) that trouble us in often? Such are neither filled with plots nor characters, instead with themes that are more familiar.

i) Resuming Back To School:

The dream of returning to school when not fully prepared also falls into the category of dreams. This often recurs when one is unprepared for whatever life may have in stuck. The dreamer might dream of being fully back in the school for an unprepared examination. A dream pointing out such vulnerability is helping at balancing the underlying feelings of overwhelming insecurity and responsibility. Being first faced with the challenge of accountability in school, it also needs to prove us in our real adult life may spring up such dream.

5 Nonsense Science Myths You Learnt on Kindergarten

These five science myths are commonly taught to us when we are kids but do they really hold any scientific authenticity? Let’s find out

 

Love your Childhood Myths?

We are sent to school just when we have reached an age when we start questioning things around us. Our parents believed school teachers are better equipped to teach and provide their kids with answers to their questions. But teachers are humans too and they can also tell us something not very scientific and proven. Here we’ll discuss top 5 of those things that we were taught in Kindergarten but hold no real truth to them.

1. Diamonds come from Coal

It’s a common belief that diamonds are made from coal, extreme pressure and a lot of time for them to do their thing. But that’s just a vague general statement and scientists do believe that Diamonds certainly don’t come from raw coal.

Carbon is the basic building block of all diamonds and we know it’s the same for coal too, but there is a difference. According to many scientific studies, Diamonds are made out of really old carbon atoms whereas coal consists of relatively newer carbon atoms. If diamonds were to be produced from coal, it’d need immense pressure which under normal circumstances isn’t possible.

This is how diamonds are actually made: Carbon-rich rocks initiate their initial formation at Earth’s mantle under intense pressure over a long period of time. Volcanic explosions then make them delivered to the Earth’s surface.

7 commonly believed Health myths we just can’t forget

These 7 health myths are the most commonly accepted ones, but they don’t really hold a strong scientific evidence to support them

We are surrounded by so many health-related myths that sometimes it becomes difficult to know what’s authentic and what’s not. What makes the situation worse is that we believe many of them for a long time and never even question about their scientific validity. It’s not possible to cover all those myths here, but we have picked the top 7 and most commonly believed myths.

1. You become fat by eating fatty foods

The statement sounds quite convincing and it’s natural that fatty foods make you fat, but actually this isn’t quite true. Just because you eat fatty foods doesn’t mean it’ll stay there forever. The reality is that you become fat if you consume more calories than you can burn. In fact, fats are a necessary part of a balanced and healthy diet. The real issue is the excess intake of fats and lack of physical activity i.e. calories intake is much greater than calories burnt.

2. Carbs also make you fat

It’s either fats or carbs that people blame all the time for being responsible for obesity and overweight. Once again it’s about healthy balance in diet and a balanced amount of carbs should not be a problem for anyone. Carbs can do their harm only if you eat a poor diet or don’t exercise regularly. Completely eliminating carbs from the diet is not recommended and a healthy balance should be maintained between different diets.

Sun For Sale? Insight story will make you Cringe

The New Hottest property, our Sun

Until recently our beloved planet Earth was the only place where the market for real estate existed. But things seem to be changing now as the market is now expanding out to Solar system and now land on Sun is also for sale. It may sound weird, but that’s exactly what a woman tried to do by selling plots on Sun.

You won’t believe

Sometimes people do things we wonder how that even got into their minds. Earlier in 2010 a Spanish woman (age 54) Maria Angeles Duran believed and openly declared she owns the Sun. She even intended to charge the beneficiaries of Sun-like the Solar Energy users. And, believe it or not, she even made that happen and the Spanish court recognized her claims. She even registered the star in her name at one of the notary offices in Spain. That’s another matter that no Solar panel user was actually sent invoices. Farmers were lucky they were excluded as their crops also utilize quite a lot of the solar energy. When she laid her claim to the sun she said “There was no snag, I backed my claim legally, I am not stupid, I know the law”

The notary public issued document declares Ms Duran to be the 'owner of the Sun
