Yesterday, Today, Tommorow (Poem)

If Yesterday were the accumulation of all the things you were gonna say,
And Tomorrow all the time remaining you have left to borrow,

Then Today is the gift of time of what may-
To keep the wolves of time at bay.

That’s why Today is called the Present.

Dreams, and Daydreams.

Sleep is an altered state of consciousness. The consciousness is made up of the perceptions, feelings, memories and thoughts held and formed by the active mind. If the mind while awake is called conscious, then the mind while asleep is called unconscious. It is not a passive event; the mind fluctuates between fully active during REM sleep and states of inactivity during non-REM phases. And it is during REM sleep that dreams occur.

Why do people dream? Despite all the achievements in science, there are only theories – no definite answers – as to why.
