Why Do Dreams Feel Like a Second Life

Nope, I've always wished I could lucid dream but I just can't.

Every dream I have these days is either about my ex or being lost in a city...

I actually had a dream last night for the first time in a few months. It was about getting abducted by aliens. It was kinda creepy at first but then I injected my cousin and (for some reason) a dream person stoner hippie guy. Things got pretty light hearted after that and the aliens were like wtf is going on? And they ended being people in these pajanimal like costumes..... Maybe there's a reason why I don't dream often :P

I barely remember my dreams, and when I do, it's some nonsense that's easily traceable to something my senses were overloaded with in the waking hours.

Like fighting mammoths and wolves in a Skyrim binge play, made me have a dream about mini elephants and dogs fighting in my house.

edit: Actually, it's not senses per se, but something Adrenaline inducing, I think.

And I heard memory is tied to Adrenaline imprinting the experience somehow. Someone here probably knows more about the subject though, so I'll cut it short.

Yep been there before, it svcks.

Iv had many dream that have been way too real than id want them to be and some i was pretty happy that they felt real, acouple ive had stuck in my memory and i thought, it was a real memory and took awhile before i realised it was a dream.

And some i thought were a dream, and were basically heavily supressed memories, and wished they'd stayed that way.

I don't sleep well, I don't dream consistently, and I don't have good dreams. They are nightmares without the stuff that frightens enough to make you wake. Sometimes it can feel like I've dreamed a dream before, but it's more like a dream deja vu, a false sense of repetition.
