Everyone sleeps and everyone dreams. This is a fact. It’s easy to know why we sleep – our bodies need rest – but why do we dream? Researchers believe they have answers to this question. They say that while we are awake, going through our day, we have new experiences. Some of these experiences we want to keep as memories, but most of them are not important, so we need to forget them to make space for new memories. Our dreams allow us to do this.
