Researchers says that, 80 percent of human dreams comes in colored and the 20 percent is black and white. Do you ever experienced dreaming in black and white colors? Cause Im curious you know, I've never had a dream like that.

According to many theories, dreams become colorless once we wake up without constant recall of the colors presented in our dreams. In my case, once, I had this notepad where I document everything that pertains to my dream (that is immediate recall after waking up, then writing it down). Here's the subconscious trick: the pictures, hues and other information in your dreams fade abruptly the moment you decided to sleep again after dreaming and waking up. But, I think if I had drawn my dream in an almost absolute perfection, the aspect that I believe I am going to screw it up is painting it with the exact colors. I hardly remember colors in my dreams.

That's great to hear it from you, I have never take notes of my dreams, I just simply go back to sleep and as I woke up again, I don't try to recall it. And yes painting it will be very difficult and time consuming specially if you don't remember their colors.

Yep, sometimes people get tired and frustrated remembering exactly what's in their dreams so they just tend to forget about it. Question: Do you think dreams are directly related to reality? Most people do, I don't. Haha! Have a nice day!

maybe you just don't remember it, cause many people who dreams at night, and as they wake up the content of their dreams was erased from their memory, because maybe it is stored in our sub-consious mind. and when our consious mind opens up, our sub-consious mind shuts down.

ya,it's true,dreams are of two types.the colour one is what we can recall easily after wake up.we can narrate them easily toothers the way we dreamt.black and white dreams are the ones sometimes we will remember we had a dream,but not sure about what subject and characters of the dream,we can't even narrate about it to others as we will feel it will be difficult for us to recall it ourselves.only that makes the difference between them.
