The dreams dismantle and disclose their secrets

Sigmund Freud started to analyze the dreams written down scientifically. His successors created a database of dreams. Dreams – nocturnal volatile “spinning” of our brain – Sigmund Freud regarded as “meaningful psychic structure” and made the scientific theme. Since then, advanced dreams object of study.
A database of dreams
The Sigmund Freud Institute gathered in many years, hundreds of dream reports. The result was a dream database. The archived dreams will be of course continue to use: Compare group, and generally explore in any direction. The researchers will now find out, for example, can vary as the dreams of men and women. Or what you dream in the given age, the specific occupation. Or how political or social events reflected in the dreams. Any question may now be asked and explored. Similarly, one can explore the perceptions of the dream: visual, auditory, olfactory, haptic or tactile. It will also deal with thinking and acting, with affects or visualization in the dreams.
Translate a dream
Of course, the database is not filled with the dreams themselves: they are translated into the language “and recorded in writing. The texts thus represent a dream narrative takes dar. Thus, a change of intention: the dream, only for the dreamer, is now published. This fact influences the narrative itself, one must also take into account. Therefore gain much more importance, the additional information: when and under what circumstances will the dream of telling how far back he is. Among them appear to be particularly important for the timing of the story.
It may, of course, the information about the dreamer not miss: his age, sex, occupation … However, only the database manager has an access to personal data. The researchers only receive anonymous material. The dreams are obtained in different ways, not least in the sleep laboratory, as in the Sigmund Freud Institute.
Experiments in the sleep
In the sleep researchers endeavor, the dreams to come close and sometimes break through the border to the dream. In one study, they played the sleeping volunteers from a short story with a 2.5-fold the speed. Under normal circumstances, in the waking state would be an attempt to understand the content of this story, doomed to failure. Unlike in a dream. The researchers managed to prove that the dreamers have not only listened but also understood the meaning of the “fast” history. You could also partly reflect the smallest details.
Dreams on words and concepts examined
Any use of the collected material allows the currently Traum-/Textanalyse Adaptive System (ATAS). ATAS is limited to the dreams that were obtained from the experimental investigations. This system offers the possibility of a search for any keyword, or concept groups. The concept of defined groups of users themselves and may at any time add to or change. Available to him are numerous synonyms.
ATAS is working with five different archives. The most important of which is of course the text data archive. The system enables besides a quantitative analysis, the creation of word lists from all his part in a text or words found. The lists are created in alphabetical order, in addition, the information appears on their frequency. The disjointed dreams to reveal their secrets in this way.
