Why in dreams we can see places we have never seen before?

Is there a logical explanation for this? :|

When you sleep, the soul leaves the body and... just kidding! :mrgreen:

Why are we also able to see giant talking lobsters? Because, with all the sensory data that your brain has accumulated throughout your life, your mind is capable of generating amalgamations -- hence creativity and imagination which can happen on conscious and subconscious levels. 8-)

OK, it seems reasonable. I guess..

I agree, attributing the apparent originality of dreamscapes to human imagination is unreasonable. Way more likely it's telesthesia or dream sharing. :D

Telesthesia and dream sharing my arse! :-D

I've just farted. It was SBD. Imagine that! There you go, you've just experienced telesthesia. :mrgreen:
