Extremely Delayed Dream Recall
« on: July 08, 2016, 02:30:07 AM »
I find that there is a lot of material discussing why it is hard to remember dreams and why they are so easily erased from our memory, and there are a lot of promising theories explaining this.
But sometimes I'll remember that I had a dream but it isn't until days later that I suddenly remember it vividly. The theories that explain why dreams are so easily forgotten don't allow for this kind of delayed recall. Logically, it would have been erased before the next time you slept.
Sometimes I am even certain that I don't even remember that I had a dream a certain day until it hits me days later like a punch to the face.

Any ideas as to why this is? Does anyone else experience this kind of delayed recall?

Yes i experienced this often. Approximatly 3 or 4 days after a dream I suddenly recognize what happend in the dream. I think our unconcious mind wants to say us that this issue is important. :gladiator:
