What if humans could record and decode dreams?

If you could look into other people’s dreams, what would you see? Will it be clear scenes and environments or just chaotic colors and sounds?

The idea sounds impossible, but scientists amaze everyone by making it a reality. They are moving towards recording dreams and then everyone can know each other’s dreams. So, how do they capture unconscious thinking?

In 2017, researcher Daniel Oldis discovered a way to convert dreams into digital information. While his team is excited about understanding the nature of dreams , others are worried about what dreams mean in digital transformation.

What if humans could record and decode dreams?
Dreams are the human brain’s attempt to understand how neural activity occurs during sleep.

It usually takes people about two hours a night to dream, spanning between five or six dreams; but we forget 95% of those dreams within seconds of waking up.

As a result, every morning, we try to piece together bizarre stories, trying to make sense of them. Over the years, many studies have tried to unravel the mysteries of why people often dream.

According to Insh, Harvard psychologists J. Allan Hobson and Robert McCarley expressed the view that dreams are the human brain’s attempt to understand how neural activity occurs during sleep.

According to Daniel Oldis, the best way to record and observe dreams is to attach electrodes to the hands , feet, and chin of a person while sleeping. When people fall into the deepest sleep, the brain will emit nerve impulses.

They reflect body movements in the dream. The electrodes then measure again, gathering information, and linking it to an image that mimics the movements of a drowsy subject.

The team also used six electrodes on a subject’s mouth and throat to decode speech. Oldis attempted to record speech, body movements, and images in dreams by tapping into the brain’s visual system.

He believes that in 10 to 20 years, people can use this technology to stream the content of their dreams to a computer or smartphone and then play it back in the morning.

However, the problem that concerns many people is if someone tries to hack those specifications, what will happen?

They will probably hold some confidential information you don’t want to reveal. From there, they will take advantage, threaten you or possibly blackmail you.

So perhaps the best place to keep everyone’s dreams is still the head. Maybe we should find a way to control our dreams instead of recording and decoding them.
