Theories for why we dream:

Dreaming is a way for our brains to keep exercising our synapses (the pathways between our brain cells) while we are sleeping. During sleep, dreaming allows our brains to keep working. 

Our brain needs to be constantly switched on, so our bodies have produced a way that this is possible while we are recharging the rest of our body in sleep. 

Research has shown the brain waves measured during REM cycles of sleep are practically identical to those measured when we are awake. So during our sleep, it would seem our brains are still ‘learning’ and still computing all that sensory input we receive during the day. 

It has been shown during the first few formative years of life, we experience the greatest amount of REM sleep. This would seem to support the theory that are brains are still active and learning while we sleep.

Dreams are a portal through which we can safely deal with unexpressed or repressed emotions we are feeling. Dreams will create scenes or situations using metaphors to allow ourselves the opportunity to ‘work through’ our issues. 

Thus the proposal that only those emotions which are strong and repressed show up as issues in our dreams, because those are the ones we need to work on in order to feel more whole. In this theory, dreams can be seen as an insight into our true selves, which often, we cannot or choose not to see.
