      I like dreaming, and thinking of my dreams when I wake up (I remember my dreams a lot, do you?). We dream because our brain is still active when we are sleeping even though we are not conscious or aware of it. Our dreams are what our brain “thinks” or “imagines” while we are in that unconscious state.
