Questions (Elements of Dreams) #AtoZChallenge
What does it mean when someone in a dream asks a question? Or if you the dreamer asks a question? How can a dream cause a question to arise?
All interesting questions. The questions that I have been asked in dreams are usually absurd when they are asked, but there are not many occasions when I can recall being asked questions in dreams. If in my dream I ask a question it is usually of a normal variety of the nature of who somebody is or how do I get somewhere. The questions within dreams are not an element to which I've paid much notice and yet this is probably an important dream element to consider.
More than anything though the dreams themselves cause questions to arise. Most often the question is something of the nature of what a dream has meant. Another question is in regard to the reason why I have had a particular dream.
The curious semblance of normalcy in dreams would suggest that questions are asked within the context of a dream. The questions might be of an odder nature than those asked in waking life, but that would fit the dream logic.
The oddness of dreams and the peculiar nature of the dream story lines seem to naturally elicit puzzlement which in turn might lead to asking questions about the dream. Well asked questions are a good thing when we can learn something from the answers. Then at times there are no answers, but only more questions.
If you've been asked a dream question or asked one yourself of a dream character, what is typically the nature of the questions asked? In your dreams, is there dialogue or are your dreams more visual than audible? What is a question that you have puzzled over after having wakened from a dream?
