I think most humans dream in black and white. There are a few of us that do dream in color and real vividly too. From what I've read most dreams are black and white and fuzzy, since it's something that takes place in our minds. That's why in some writings they always say "It was all fuzzy and dreamlike and I didn't realize it was really happening". For those of us who do dream in color, we are those that are gifted in a way for some creativity. Our dreams are more vivid and more realistic. I do however recall sometimes I donot always dream in color. Perhaps more research on how to control your dreams is required. I've read once on Omni magazine that if you train yourself to think of things that you want to do before sleeping, you tend to get to see that in your dreams. So if you may want to try to think of something that you want your dream to be do that. And of course try to think about it in full color. More likely you will dream in color. This doesn't happen without practice. The more you train yourself the more you get what you desire. Let's see if we can try that and then you can post your success on MyLot.

Oh by the way, I would like to add even though this is a bit off topic but it's still about dreaming. Some of these trainings are done to help those who get real bad dreams and nightmares. No person is exactly like the other so there may be variations for each individual. These trainings however require some professional guidance. If you can train yourself to control your dreams, there is a chance that those bad dreams and nightmares may go away. Please consult a specialist of you intend to do so.
