Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare...
“It’s like there are two of us, the real me, the one you can’t see, who thinks and feels and loves and look ahead.
And the one you see, who lags behind. A victim of appetites and strange desires, bodily needs I can only guess at.
Looking ahead I see it now, a lifetime of being held back and weighed down.
Will I ever be free, of that me.”
During the final phase of pregnancy babies spend about 90% of their time asleep, and when they sleep, nothing will wake them. One of the things revealed by the 4D scans is the fact that babies have REM, rapid eye movement sleep, a period of sleep where the eyes flick around behind the eyelids. Later in life we know this is an indication of dreaming. This gentle flicker of an eye could be a sign that the foetus, still with a month to go before even being born, is already dreaming.
In adulthood, dreaming plays a vital role in allowing us to make sense of events around us, and to develop strategies to deal with the world. In a fetus, dreaming, however simple the dreams, maybe the crucial process that stimulates the brain to grow and develop.
“What do I dream of, I dream my mother’s dreams.
I dream my mother, she dreams me.
I dream about our past, our future, what it may bring.
I hear my mother crying, I hear her sing.”
Clip from the award winning documentary “In the Womb”.
