Another thing that Revonsue believes is that if we didn't dream, we wouldn't be able to live to see another day. And it all goes back to the first thing I quoted about him in the previous paragraph on how certain dreams happen to prepare us for things in the future. Imagine in the future, you are being chased by a crew of gang members or dogs. You are slower than them but you still try to keep running till you get cornered. A lot of people would not know how to handle that because they would feel as if there is no point since they are obviously slower. But in the dream, they find some random item on the ground that helps them deal with the dogs, thus, allowing them to get away from the gang in pursuit. Now let's assume this person lives or is moving to a place that is known for bad gang violence. If that is to ever occur, that dream would literally happen been their saving grace. It saved the person from being robbed or utter death. The same concept can be applied to other types of dreams.
The thing I find so fascinating about dreams is that the scene occurring does not have to be exactly the situation that will occur in the future. It will most likely just be a similar scenario. And if people can learn all that they can from certain dreams, it can benefit them in the long run.
