Thoughts and ideas, poetry and musings welcome to my philosophical world.
Sleep perchance to dream
The thought occurred to me, why do we sleep? Is it to protect us in the dark? As we developed as a species what purpose did it serve? Perhaps we developed sleep originally as a protection. Then as we evolved it became a way to develop the brain. Set up the filing system, process the experiences of the day, resolve problems that have occurred. Dreams may be a way of coping with stress or they could be wishes or maybe they are sent to us from beyond for our pleasure.
