What is a dream?

Though a few people may not remember dreaming, it has been suggested that everyone dreams between 3 to 6 times per night. A typical dream will consist of a series of events based on a random assortment of memories; fictitious scenarios all woven into a rich tapestry of chapters that you may have some participation with.

Who chooses these events? memories? fictitious scenarios?

Who magically weaves a script and directs the action allowing you to take part. Is it us doing all this work subconsciously while we are supposedly unconscious? These questions, for the most part, have baffled science. To this day, there is still not a conclusive, definitive factual reason for why we dream.
