Is it normal to have dreams of people i have almost no connection to?

Is it normal to have dream that include people I barely know or haven't seen in years? And they aren't just normal dreams; they're some of the weirdest dreams I've had and I'm not really sure why. I keep seeing my dad in dreams, my old friends from primary school, and some people I see every once in a while now, but barely have talked to.

Is It Normal?

  • Yes it happens.
    The other day I dreamed of some guy I have not seen since maybe middle school. In the dream he was trying to fix the super charger on his car but it was spraying gasoline everywhere. I was trying to help fix it.

  • Who cares? It's just a dream. I had a dream about making out with an extraterrestrial species that I've no connection with. That doesn't mean the dream is anything special, abnormal or should be analyzed.

  • The unconscious mind processes information at times leaving us wondering what the heck it was doing. Sigmund Freud theorised that dreams represent unconscious desires, thoughts, wish fulfilment, and motivations. He believed there was meaning from the seemingly random images and emotional content that make up dreams. The purpose of dreams under this ideology is to bring these repressed wishes and deepest desires to the surface so that the dreamer can confront and reconcile these repressed feelings.

    According to studies performed by others on the subject of dreams, brain synthesises and interprets this internal activity and attempts to find meaning in these signals, which we experience as dreams. This suggests that When we wake, our conscious mind pulls together the various images and memory fragments of the dream to create some meaning. While this theory argues that dreams do not serve a purposeful function on their own, those involved in the study added that while their theory does not hold that dreams are completely meaningless. Instead dreaming is "our most creative conscious state, one in which the chaotic, spontaneous recombination of cognitive elements produces novel configurations of information: new ideas. While many or even most of these ideas may be nonsensical, if even a few of its fanciful products are truly useful, our dream time will not have been wasted."
