Mass participation experiment reveals how to create the perfect dream

In addition, the researchers found that people's dreams were particularly bizarre around the time of a complete moon.

"In 2013, neuroscientists from the University of Basel found that persons experience much more disturbed sleeping patterns about the time of a full Moon," remarked Wiseman. "We have seen a similar pattern, with extra bizarre dreams becoming related with a complete moon."

Ultimately, the team also discovered that specific soundscapes produced far a lot more pleasant dreams.

"Obtaining optimistic dreams helps people today wake-up in a fantastic mood, and boosts their productivity. We have now discovered a way of giving individuals sweet dreams, and this might also type the basis for a new form of therapy to support those suffering from specific psychological challenges, such as depression," commented Wiseman.

Be part of the World's largest dream experiment!

Dream:ON allows you to select what you want to dream about before you go to bed, monitors your movement during the night, then plays a themed soundscape at the optimum moment in your sleep cycle.

"We have created a new way of carrying out mass participation experiments. We still know relatively little about the science of dreaming and this app may provide a real breakthrough in changing how we dream, and record and track those dreams."
Professor Richard Wiseman

Being the conspiracy theorist that I am, I would avoid this. What else might they try to influence through your sleep? Carbs are good, carbs are good, carbs are good…..

I agree, it's stepping into the realm of population control via subliminal messages.

Besides, I enjoy the dreams I have now! If I were having night terrors/nightmares, maybe I'd need intervention, but why mess with something that ain't broke? As already stated, just another attempt at population control . . .
