Why dreams are so strange

What’s the strangest dream you’ve ever had? I had a pretty crazy recurring one when I was a kid, though the details of it are lost to me now. What makes those nighttime visions so strange?

So all of those memories, new ideas, and projects at work that are stressing you out are floating around in your head without your prefrontal cortex to connect them logically—you end up with a crazy mash up in your dream.

    I had a recurring dream that I was naked and trying to cover myself. People could see me and it was bewildering.
