Unit 2 discussion #2: dreams

Have you ever had a dream that had great meaning to you, one that may have influenced your life? A number of psychological theories attempt to explain the purpose and the meaning of dreams. One describes dreams as the result of neurons firing while you sleep, while other theorists disagree, and assign great meaning to our dreams. What is your theory about the purpose and meaning of dreams? How does it align (or negate) with another established theory?
