Are dreams real or pure fiction?

PROLOGUE
THE PURPOSE of my writing this creative nonfictional composition is to deal with the issue of whether dreams are real or fantasy. Many people believe that they are real in that they reflect the character of the dreamer and have repercussions on him or that they are a foreboding of a realistic future event. This composition elucidates the idea that even though dreams have some relationships to what the dreamer has experienced, dreams by themselves are pure fantasy.
What INFLUENCED my writing this piece was my very own dream. After experiencing such a nightmare, I was deeply motivated in finding insights about dreaming and researching their specific meanings. My classmate, Ryan, discussing about his own dream of being a serial killer, has also given me an inspiration into thinking about dreams. After all, my dream was in similar context with Ryan’s dream – we were both being serial killers.

INTRODUCTION
Brain is simply the most fascinating organ in the body. It is where dreaming occurs. When a person is well into his sleep his eyes start to move rapidly. This stage is known as “Rapid Eye Movement” or “REM sleep” and is where he begins to dream. In a person’s brain, there are systems known as “neural systems.” They function as an ongoing but unaware correlate to those structures that people are aware of during states of consciousness. However, during REM sleep, neural systems have the upper hand and they are not interfered by reality. Hence, dreams have the freedom to transform any prior or possible future experience into phantasmagoria.

ONE NIGHT I HAD A DREAM…
“I have the power of God over this guy, and I am going to kill him.”
This thought overwhelms me late one evening as I approach a teenager in the outskirts of my town’s shopping centre. I feel that this youngster is mocking and ridiculing me. He says nothing, nor does he do anything significant except grinning and making faces. I start getting angry, because I feel very strongly that his grin and facial expressions are his attempts to mock me. As he comes close to me, I hold him firm by his fist and lure him to a deserted side alley. Up to now, he seems to be in a state of shock. Then suddenly, he starts to scream. I chock his scream by forcing my handkerchief into his mouth while gripping his body tight with my left arm. As I am doing this, I notice three adults rushing towards me with stakes in their hands. I feel threatened. I carry the boy and keep winding my way through side streets, making it almost impossible for the three adults to locate me. My ploy succeeds; I do not have them trailing me anymore. Thereafter, I rebuke him:
“You dirty scoundrel! You will pay the penalty for mocking me!” He shakes his head vigorously from left to right probably to indicate that he did not mock me. But I am sure that he certainly did. I confirm this and warn him:
“You are an insignificant creature! I am all powerful! I am God! I am going to take your life!”
With this, I place my two palms around his throat and squeeze his breath out of him until he is stone dead. I feel relieved that I have put an end to the mocking and ridiculing I received late that evening. Later that night, as I am having my dinner, I reflect on my feeling of relief of killing that boy. I felt relieved and not remorseful because I killed the boy who was mocking me and was hurting my pride. My thoughts immediately go back to my father. One night, my mother asked my father:
“Aren’t you sorry for beating your son so violently?”
He retorted:
“No. He disobeyed me and hurt my pride. He deserved to be punished!”
My father behaved as if he was God, so do I. He got away with it. So will I!

Shortly after my confrontation with the teenager, my manager from work, Jason, and I decide to go out to our usual pub. After a bottle of beer, Jason starts to discuss about politics which he believes is a meaningful topic. I hate politics. I try losing eye contact with him as a signal for him to change the topic. Nevertheless, he keeps rambling on about the current crisis. I lost my calm and belligerently retort:
“Screw politics and screw you for liking it!”
Our discussion soon becomes violent as he retorts back saying:
“Who the hell are you to judge me?”
From this moment on, all I want is to kill this ruthless creature. But I notice that our violent argument is under the spotlight. With a cunning plan to kill Jason, I pretend that I am sincerely sorry for my inappropriate conduct; then I convince him that we should go for a walk in the park in order to get some fresh air. As we approach a deserted area, my mood suddenly switches:
“How could you make me look inferior? You cannot overpower me! I am God!” I grab his throat with my two palms and am on the verge of taking his life. However, two of Jason’s mates from the pub suspecting that Jason is in trouble come looking for him. I see them a fair distance from Jason and me. I realise that being confronted with three large men would be too much for me. I quickly start to throttle Jason telling him:
“You cannot stand up against God!”
He immediately tries escaping from my palms locked round his throat, but he soon ran out of breath. Then suddenly, as Jason drops like a stone to the ground, I run away before his friends arrive.

After killing my manager, my thoughts of being superior – being God - are unstoppable. I become fearless of any living creature. I start to enjoy my being God. Then, I decide to try this famous restaurant which is renowned for its lobsters. Lobsters are my favourite dish. Being a well-known restaurant, it charges an exorbitant price for its lobsters. I had only 5 bucks with me. Yet, this does not stop me from experiencing my favourite dish. My meal arrives and my excitement begins to rise. However, as soon I start experiencing the taste of this delicious lobster, I begin to hear a siren. The sirens soon multiply and within seconds I see a significant number of police vehicles completely surrounding the restaurant. I am still unconvinced why the Police are here. Thus, I keep enjoying my meal. Then, three of the Policemen come rushing into to the restaurant and towards my seat yelling out:
“DON’T MOVE! DON’T MOVE!”
I quickly, dart through the back exit via the kitchen. To clear obstacles in my way I topple a serving-man’s tray of food and a trolley of plates, and knock down another man flat to the ground. Along with my thoughts of escaping from the Police, I also begin to wonder how, in such short time, the Police have started their criminal investigations targeting me. Soon, I notice the back exit and a slight grin build in my face thinking that I have succeeded in escaping again. Nevertheless, as I open the door, I am in a state of deep shock when I am confronted by an armed policeman; I never ever – even for a brief moment – thought that I would be overpowered by anyone, let alone being apprehended by the Police. I have nowhere to go. Consequently, this policeman who was outside guarding that exit electrocuted me using his Taser gun. I fall to the ground in defeat. I am so overwhelmingly startled by my realising that after all I am not God. This realisation is unbearable; I start screaming!
Then in a bath of sweat, I wake up…..in my bed…..it was all a horrific nightmare.

EPILOGUE
This nightmare has taught me a lesson. As Shakespeare says in his play Romeo and Juliet, I have learnt that “dreams are begot of nothing but vain fantasy.” Since dreams are the product of fantasising, we should dismiss them without getting scared of them. My nightmare apparently has resulted from the fantasies I had about assuming I am God and killing others, after I read Robert Drewe’s “The Shark Net” in which the theme is the homicides of a serial killer.
Nevertheless, after my nightmare, I felt remorseful. Evidently, even though my experience was “begot of fantasy”, subconsciously, I felt as if I had murderous intentions. Even though I was convinced that dreams are fiction and fantasy, I was inclined to believe that there is some reality in them.
Dreaming of being a serial killer has psychological interpretations. In general, people who encounter such dreams, in reality, are suffering from heavy stress that may lead to losing self-control. This is fairly accurate with my recent lifestyle as I have been suffering from the overwhelming workload in studying medicine. Another significance of dreaming such a nightmare is to give an indication to the dreamer that he has overcome one of his addictions; he has put an end to his former ways of thinking. This is clearly in line with my recent encounters; prior to my dream of being a serial killer I gave up “Facebook” after 2 years of addiction. Hence, from these interpretations, it is certain that what we experience in real life gets immersed in our subconscious mind; dreams indeed make a person realise his recent concerns. Nevertheless, dreams by itself are nothing but pure fiction. (1605 words)

Looking Backward Essay - Historical Context

...08 March 2010 The American Dream, like any idea that has stood the test of time, appeals to so many people because it is largely left open to personal interpretation. One person’s idea of the American Dream can be vastly different from another’s, and for some it may even change temporally. In, “Looking Backward: 2000-1887,” the protagonist, Julian West, finds himself torn between two different American Dreams: the American Dream of the capitalists of the nineteenth century, and the American Dream of an enlightened twenty first century metropolis. The only surviving heir to a great family inheritance, West is comfortably adjusted to life in America in the 1880s despite the unsavory politics, rabid economics, growing gap between rich an poor, and frequent labor strikes, all of which threaten to arrest industry and devastate the young nation. After a bizarre experience with “animal hypnotism,” West sleeps for over 113 years and awakes in the year 2000 in the home of Dr. Leete. West finds that the new society has no greed, no corruption, no poverty, no crime, and no war. A society in which everyone’s laundry is professionally laundered, meals are professionally prepared in public kitchens, everyone gets a quality education, working hours are short, and retirement comes at the age of forty-five. Everything is as in a utopia. This utopia, no doubt, represented the aspirations of the book’s nineteenth century author, Edward Bellamy. Channeled through...

Avante Garde Film

...film seems to examine the relationship between dreams and reality in such a way that gives the audience a glimpse into the mind of Deren. The film begins in what may be argued as a representation of the real world. Several objects are established as important and serve as recurring images or motifs during Deren’s dream. Initially, the film begins with the camera following Deren’s shadow. This creates a certain amount of mystery and distance between the viewer and the character. However, once, she reaches her house, everything changes as the audience are thrust into her shoes through a very obvious point of view shot. This establishes a strong relationship between Deren and her audience. As the film continues, more and more point of view shots allow the viewer to gain a very personal view of what is going on. After entering her house, Deren falls asleep in a chair. This is a good point to begin close scene analysis. As she drifts into fantasy, it seems much effort is made to establish the dream world. Deren sees a person in a black cloak pick up a flower. Her initial view of the person is through some sort of tunnel vision. This tunnel vision is the first impression the audience is given that this world is unnatural is some way. As the head of the person turns, the face is revealed as a mirror. This may relate to a person Deren saw before she went to sleep. She did not see the person’s face. This has carried over to her dream. The relevance of the mirror may be......

Truman

However , escaping from his fictional world is not easy as he estimates. Soon, Truman gets forced to face his fears, to go an “unknown” from the world that he is safe inside in order to escape from his “fake world”. In the last scene, director of the Truman Show (Ed Harris) tries to trick Truman (and “of course” the audience).Directors says “ there is nothing better at the “outside”, even inside is better and safe.”. But Truman doesn’t prefer the prison that he is in and escape from it. When I came to my conclusions about the movie is trying to send a message to the audience. For example, in the Truman afraid from sea because he lost her father at sea. Symbolic meanings in any language of the sea means freedom. Truman is afraid of the sea because it is not free. Truman does not exceed the sea following the exit of the vessel that symbolizes. By the ocassion of this awakening of Truman and seeking the truth, director gives the message of “go for the freedom” and if analyzed deeper, we can see The Truman Show invites its audience to an illumination.For writers of the movie audiences are passive and writer suggest them to be active in movie When we look around the framework of popular culture on film we can get some conclusions.

...and consuming themselves with stories that may not be entirely fiction or nonfiction. The stories that used to be abundant in books and people are now protruding in a box and screen. American children are being affected by this the most because as they grow up, a fear is they won’t experience the same fiction fairy-tale like childhood most children had before. A topic that I found quite interesting was the science of dreams. Do dreams tell stories? Do they hold some secret prophesy for an individual? Do dreams have any use in this world? These questions were some I have had my entire life. I always thought I never dreamed but just accepted the fact that maybe I just forgot them all. However, dreams are just the waste of the brain after a long day. Dreams are not meant to be understood according to Gottschall. Dreams are reflections of what we may want, need, or experience. Dreams tell us a story however, some nights it may be happy and cheerful, other nights it may be threatening and vicious. However, dreams tell us a story of what our fictional mind craves. One impactful moment when I was reading this book was the section of truthful lies. In this section, it talks about how reality TV shows today are not entirely nonfiction but they aren’t entirely fiction. The only similarity that is clearly present is that reality shows have a story. An example of a show that is considered a truthful lie is The Ultimate Fighter. This show is basically about a group......

The Jungle

...a person. Jurgis is from Lithuania and comes to America in search of the American dream. At the beginning of the novel Jurgis comes to America as any other typical European immigrant. He dreams of America as being a land where a man with little can rise through the ranks and ultimately become a man with wealth and prosperity. Jurgis quickly realizes that industrial America is a land of heartache, where a willing man is exploited and used as energy to fuel the never ending industrial machine. At the end of the novel Jurgis learns that the great land of America has its limitations, but at a cost as he loses his wife and child and spends stints in jail for trying to defy the machine. Thus, the novel, The Jungle exemplifies how immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe in the early 1900s could not fully realize and achieve the American dream no matter how hard they toiled and worked in the brutal American factories of the time. A jungle is an area of madness and chaos where animals roam free and one either eats or is eaten. Upton Sinclair titled his novel, The Jungle because urban Chicago exemplified all of the same traits that a jungle possessed except for the fact that the jungle of Chicago was made up of concrete while a jungle in nature is made up of earth, soil and trees. However, the people that make up the streets of Chicago are just as vicious and brutal as any animal in a real jungle. The jungle of Chicago, "was simply a seething cauldron of jealousies and......

Novel as a Literary Form

... THE NOVEL AS FICTION As against imaginative fictional, the novel is a realistic form. It presents that segment of life and society in more or less approximate terms, which has been seen and experienced by the actual men and women of a particular period. The concept of mirroring or reflecting an object is more significant in the case of the novel than it would be in the case of poetry or dreams. While reading a novel, readers are transformed to a different world with its own laws, rules and regulation. Towns and villages, markets, streets and pathways hold out as actual places with their distinct coloring and feel. Not only the characters are shown as speaking with their own mannerisms but ordinary information about their appearances, conditions, opinions and state of mind also imparted by the author in his or her voice. The remarks of the author meant clearly for sharing with the reader, lend authenticity to the description in novel and make the reader accept it as truthful account. This leads to a state in which the reader is strongly drawn into the ethos of the world of the novel. While poetry and drama are also invented and imagined, they cannot be equated with a lie. In fact, they are "high truth." While poetry and drama talk about the Truth, the universal all-embracing wisdom, the novel as a fiction piece may rest content with presenting and ordinary life situation. In this way, the irony behind the 'fictional piece' cannot be missed. NOVEL AS......

Matrix

...well as many differences with the excerpts from Plato and Descartes. Each of these has different purposes when they were written and therefore have different opinions. One common theme that appears in each of these is the grasp of whether we humans are living in a dream or actual reality. It would not be surprising if the director of The Matrix had read each of these other pieces of writing by Descartes and Plato. In The Matrix, the main character Neo is an intelligent computer hacker that has trouble sleeping at night. He ends up receiving a pill that enables him to understand that what he is living in is just a dream and that everyone is connected through tubes of some sort. This has similarities with the excerpt from Descartes. In Descartes he starts out by explaining that what he has grown up believing to be true out to be not so true. He attempts to clear his mind of all other truths that he believed and start from fresh from what he can determine to be absolutely true for himself. The way that these two are similar is that the main characters, Neo and Descartes, are both seeking truth. Though these two are similar, they are also different. In The Matrix, it is a fictional story that says that everyone is in a dream and that they are just in the matrix. Descartes on the other hand, is written based on a belief. He is trying to determine what is absolutely true. The excerpt from Plato is a conversation between Glaucon and Socrates. It is a rather confusing......

Citizen Kane

...Between Dreams and Reality: The Citizen Kane Effect “If I hadn’t been very rich, I might have been a really great man.” Charles Kane has said to audiences since 1941. Citizen Kane has been a staple in the classrooms of film studies as well as on lists of classic movies. Although meant to have been premiered on February 14, 1941 at Radio City Music Hall, the intense threats of William Randolph Hearst, who it is believed Orson Welles modeled the fictional character of Kane from, caused most theatres unwilling to risk backlash and thus striking the film from their show lineups. Financial success at the box office was assured to be nonexistent and eventually caused Welles departure from RKO Studios and restricted direction freedom on his future projects. The controversy surrounding the film didn’t stop there. True authorship will forever be debated with credit being distributed between co-writers Mankiewicz and Welles. Although either side you take gain perspective on the core audience they developed their groundbreaking story for and undoubtably had the greatest impact on: the middle class liberal males of the 1940’s and 1950’s. “The people are going to see Citizen Kane, and not one of them will be quite the same person after seeing it as he was before.

Lcs121 the Secret Life of Walter Mitty

...James Thurber’s best known story, “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” is a fictional story of an ordinary husband, Walter Mitty, who performs ordinary tasks and constantly day dreams of being an extraordinary man performing high profile tasks. The story itself begins with Mitty imagining himself as a courageous military commander who is piloting a Navy hydroplane through a storm, when he is ticked off by his wife for driving too fast, he comes back to reality but soon goes back into his fantasy world by imagining himself as a famous surgeon performing a critical surgery on a millionaire banker. The pattern is repeated several times as he further imagines himself being interrogated in a courtroom for murder, followed by a patriotic World War 1 British pilot willing to die for his country and lastly as he waits for his wife outside the drugstore, he imagines himself as an undefeated wanted man smoking his last cigarette waiting to be shot by a firing squad. Throughout the story, Walter Mitty is constantly trying to escape his monotonous life and has to be constantly brought back to reality by others around him. Most of the time it is his almost ‘mother-like’ wife who is always looking all over for him. This sort of behavior is almost expected out of Mitty and seems to have been happening for a while as when she pulls him out of his first day dream she even says that, “it’s one of your days, I wish you’d let Dr. Renshaw look you over.” His wife is clearly the dominant one in......

The World of Gatsby Is Ultimately Corrupt

...commentary and moral statement on the Jazz Era elements and capitalist boom of the 1920s. Fitzgerald perfectly uses other characters such as Meyer Wolfsheim as well as Gatsby’s constant incoming phone calls from different areas in America to create a rather vulgar sense of corruption . Gatsby’s involvement in the bootlegging industry make him a perfect symbol of twisted morality and extreme wealth which go hand in hand to portray Fitzgerald’s idea of 1920’s America. The Corruption of the American Dream The corruption of the “American Dream” is one of the main themes in the novel, as well as being an issue which is highly prominent in Jay Gatsby’s fictional personal life. By the 1920s the glorious ‘American Dream’ had been twisted into the desire for extreme wealth and glamour by any means. Fitzgerald does not actually explicitly use the words “American Dream” in the novel, but skilfully shows the impossibility of achieving real happiness through materialism . He teaches the reader a moral lesson and makes social commentary on the faults of Capitalism . It is ironic and almost quite tragic that the purpose of Gatsby’s glamorous parties is completely and utterly to attract and impress Daisy, but when she finally attends, she is ‘ appalled ’ and ‘ offended ’. The glamorous elements of Gatsby’s lifestyle are an intentional by-product of the journey toward his ultimate goal – to win Daisy. With extreme wealth comes......

Extra Sensory Perception

...we should jump to conclusions about the absence of God because of obvious human limitations or the non-existence of a potentially “life-altering discovery”-Michio Kaku. How do you explain extraordinary phenomenon that occurs around you or to you. People who peer into the looking glass of the near future and come out accurate, a dream that becomes reality with shocking similarity. It could all just be one big coincidence, or it could be the growth of the human race, a development using the Darwinian assumption that man is not perfect and room is available for future growth and development. There are many well-documented cases of apparent precognition and clairvoyance. For example, in 1898, Morgan Robertson published "Futility," a novel about a huge luxury liner called the Titan. The story allegedly came to him in a sort of trance. In the novel, the ship zips through dense fog late one April night, crashes into an iceberg and sinks, killing hundreds of people. Fourteen years later, the Titanic, similar in size and structure to the fictional ship, did exactly this, at the same time of year, under the same conditions. For both the fictional ship and the real ship, the casualties were high because there weren't nearly enough lifeboats on board.

Capote vs a Good Man Is Hard to Find

...Fact Vs. Fiction Does one murdered family deserve more sympathy than another? In the two stories we read about two different families that got murdered, I personally do feel more sympathy for one family over the other. The Clutter family was a real living family, while the fictional family O’Connor writes about has an unknown last name and feels fake. Both of the stories gave me vivid pictures of what most family members acted like personality wise. However, I find that I sympathize more for the Clutter family for many reasons. Both families did not deserve to have their lives taken by murderers, but the Clutter family seemed very undeserving compared to the grandmother’s family. The story “A Good Man Is Hard To Find” consists of a family full of different characteristics and personalities. The very obnoxious grandmother talks a lot trying to make a fuss about everything and sounds annoying. She lives with her son Bailey, who seems strict and annoyed most of the time. June Star seems like a brat and her mother has no personality. This family does not seem like the type of family one would invite over for dinner. Their personalities seem too demanding of attention. While reading this short story, I felt like a dumber more obnoxious person than this grandmother does not exist. As I read this story I could not make a connection with any of the characters and wondered if a family like this could actually exist. It seems as if the grandmother and her family had opportunities......

Don Quixode

...Don Quixote was the most influential wok of literature to develop from the Spanish Golden Age and the best known work of Spanish literature in England. Don Quixote was a fictional character by Miguel de Cervantes who was considered Spain’s greatest writer. Published in two volumes a decade apart, Don Quixote contains romance, adventure, humor, aspiration and philosophy. Cervantes himself states that he wrote Don Quixote in order to undermine the influence of those "vain and empty books of chivalry.” I believe Cervantes wanted to take the knight idea to a different approach. Don Quixote was an important book for many reasons, but mostly because it was the first book to bring reasonable real-life consequences into the world of literature. Don Quixote is very different to other literature of previous time periods such as The Iliad, The Odyssey, Beowulf, Inferno, etc. It was an important development in literature and shows us readers that the reality of existence consists in accepting all the impact of experience. The popular literature at the time was romance. Cervantes work influenced the creation and transformation of literary genres. Don Quixote introduced the contrast between romance and reality. Alonzo Quixano who later changes his name to Don Quixote, was a wealthy man who spends all his days and nights reading books about medieval knights and dragon-slaying.

Don't Get Me Started

...Don’t get me started on… Twilight. Twilight… terrifying, teeny, torture! A sickening series, spawning sequel, after sequel, after sequel. A tale of teeny love set amongst the fashionable vampire culture. I hate it! I hate vampires! I hate the banal storylines! I hate the sickening simpering simpletons posing as actors! “Wait!” I hear the cries of a thousand poor deluded teenage girls. “Why do you hate us so much?” Firstly, and I really regret having to tell you this but… it’s not real. Those obsessive compulsives who fantasise about living their lives within these films will find that their dreams shattered by unrealistic expectations of perfection. All the characters are perfect. Every perfect plastic smiling girl has two perfect (plastic) smiling boys after her. No zits. No farts. No burps. Just, perfection. All this results in is disappointment. They can never be as perfect as Bella, Edward or Jacob – they will never find their perfect plastic partner for a simple reason: It’s. Not. Real! Secondly Twilight is dangerous.
