I've noticed this before in normal dreams, which made me think that in dreams, we convert emotions and feelings to a way of understanding our surrounding, without actually using words... I don't know if that makes much sense...
Does anyone have similar experiences?
The left hemisphere of the brain deals in sequential analysis, logic, symbolism, language, mathematics, abstract reasoning, linguistic memory, rational, analytical, objective, and... looks at parts.
The right hemisphere of the brain is quite interesting. This one deals in visual spatial skills, holistic functioning (seeing the bigger picture), auditory and visual memory, random, intuitive, subjective, and... looks at the whole.
As we can see, there is a variety of ways in which we experience and interpret experience. During ordinary dreaming, the right hemisphere is mostly dominant (however this does not mean that our more rational side doesn't have an input).
During wakefulness and lucid dream states, however, the left hemisphere can dominate. In fact, generally speaking, it is considered to be the most dominant, because, after all, we spend more time awake than asleep. And even when we sleep, it can dominate when it comes to lucid dreaming.
However we all think in our heads with words a lot don't we?
In these dreams (I remember only one, maybe two being lucid) I never had a single thought, as far as I remember.
In real life I usually think in words (as in the sound of a word, not visualizing the image of a written word, so no text) and images.
In our dreams, our subconscious takes over, and we see the big picture without words.
When lucid, both are active, and we see and hear words (among other senses), but it is hard to read, write, listen, or do anything of that nature.
Dreams and lucid dreams are in a realm of feelings and visions, not words or text or even mathematics. IT IS JUST A GUT FEELING THAT CANNOT BE DESCRIBED BUT EXISTS AND HAS AN IMPACT ON ALL OUR LIVES.
