Everyone seems to have their own meaning to their dreams. Some think that they are predicting the future. Others believe that symbols within dreams have certain meaning to what is going to happen or what has happened to them. I could go on and on about different meaning to dreams. I read the article “Dreams from Culture to Culture”. It talks about how different cultures view their own dreams. I thought that it was interesting in the United States that men are three times as likely to dream about murder than women, but in another culture women are twice as likely to dream about murder than men. Does that mean that the men in the United States could be crazy? That’s a lot to dream about murder. Maybe that is why more men go to jail for killing that women. That really amazed me. It would seem to me that women hold more grudges than men and would dream about wanting to kill something to get out their frustration, but I guess that is not the case. Another thing that caught my attention was the fact that people tend to dream about their geographic territory rather than places they have never been. I find that I have dreams about places I eventually want to go to. The article talked about the Eskom’s only dreaming about igloos and the cattle farmers only dreaming about farming. That in a way makes sense, but I find that people dream more about other places than the current place that they are living in. Your dreams should be of places that you want to see, but can’t get there in your life time. You spend all your hours that you are awake living here, why would you want to dream about it too? One…
stereotype people, to children just to sell products and make money? I will be exploring these issues in my exploration of Disney as not only a powerful consumer brand but also a transmitter (and creator?) of cultural values.
One way in which Disney can seem to be shaping cultural attitudes and values is in the way in which its fictions represent aspects of ethnic and gender identity. Disney portrays many different stereotypes, from the jealous orang-utan King Louis in the Jungle Book…

My Dream theory Analysis
According to Sigmund Freud a dream is an unconscious wish fulfillment.
Every dream has an underlying message to things that are connected with or conscious
problems or wishes.
On my first night I dream that I was driving my four wheeler back home. Home is a
desert, so I was just riding and it was peaceful. The day was coming to end it was a maybe a
little after sunset, but the further I was going I became more frightened. When I tried to turn
around I only found myself back in the direction I was going in…
Running Head: DREAMS
State Fair Community College
Dreams can range from normal and ordinary, to overly surreal and bizarre. The events in dreams are generally outside the control of the dreamer, with the exception of lucid dreaming, where the dreamer is aware. Dreams can have varying natures, such as frightening, exciting, magical, melancholic, adventurous, or sexual. Dreams can, at times, make a creative thought occur to a person or be a sense of inspiration…
Why Do We Dream?
Modern Theories of Dreaming
By Rebecca Turner Lucid Dream Forum
Why do we dream? Ancient civilizations saw dreams as portals for receiving wisdom from the gods. In modern psychology, Sigmund Freud famously theorized that dreams were the "royal road to the unconscious". Modern theories suggest it's not as complicated as that. Are we getting closer to understanding dreams?
Freud - aka the father of dream research - gave psychoanalysis as one explanation for why we dream. But Freud…
personal hopes and an unfortunate reality in Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, where he misinterprets Biff’s potential to be successful, his perspective on himself as a successful salesman, as well as the promised material comforts of the American Dream.
Willy misconceives Biff’s potential to be successful, where he fails to realize that Biff is nothing but an average being who has lived a majority of his life in disappointment and failure. Biff defines success as achieving what you desire through…
Developing Cultural Identity
Much is to be said about a bilingual learner developing cultural identity. But to understand how cultural identity id developed, we must first understand what cultural identity is. Cultural identity can be defined as the uniqueness of a group, culture, or individual, as influenced by a person’s belonging to a group or culture (afs.org). So what happens, then, when a person, specifically a language-learning student, suddenly feels a clash between two different cultures…

People have an extremely difficult time trying to comprehend the meaning of dreams. Fortunately, there are expert psychologists who specialize in understanding dreams. Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung are the two main psychologists who have theories about dreams. Freud came to the conclusion that dreams can be interpreted as advice for one’s self. Jung believed that dreams are a way for the brain to familiarize with the unconscious.
According to Jung, every dream has a positive message…

A Cultural Determination of Meaning
Throughout historic culture, we can identify several changes in philosophical thought. Through the emergence of romanticism, we see a realization that, through passion, the paths of the hero and saint can be merged. In the agony and ecstasy of Michelangelo, it is obvious how the paths of hero and saint can be merged in the form of art, to attempt to reconcile the tension between them. In the enlightenment patterns of cultural mutation, we begin…
