According to what I've read:

You dream every night, you just don't always remember

Dreams are the brains way of dealing with all the info it recieves during your waking hours

sorry I can't provide a reference link, this info comes from my days as a student of Biology

hahaha flying dreams like this aren't the ones you really want. ;)

bad choice of words perhaps, but it represents the dreams quite well.

As bella said, you always dream; it's remembering them that's another story.
What do you mean it's not good to dream too much?

Because you should be out living, not dreaming? :)

No. While in the dreaming phase your brain is not in it's deep REM sleep or whatever it's called. The deep deep sleep that heals you up and gets you ready for another grueling day. So if your brain spends too much time dreaming, you're not getting enough deep sleep and you wake up not rested enough.

actually, the dreaming happens during rem sleep. from what i read, rem sleep is important for learning and perhaps concentration. the deep healing sleep is different, and it's true that you don't dream during that. you need both though. you enter rem sleep multiple times each night and you dream each time - you just usually don't remember the dreams unless you wake up during one or there's something particularly strange (hedgehogs?) or disturbing (falling off of cliffs?) about them.

i think i've mostly figured out the hedgehog. i used to watch these old soviet claymation things from the '70's when i was little, and one of them had a hedgehog as a man character (hedgehog in the fog). i'm not sure about the airplanes and tatyana samoilova.

i looked at some of those carpy online dream dictionaries:
"To see a hedgehog in your dream, suggests that you are being overly sensitive. You tend to take everything too personally. Alternatively, it refers to losing your soul."

whatever.

I just had a thought.
REM sleep is Rapid eye moment sleep.
Why your eyes and not your feet or elbow?

Then I got to thinking about a story somebody told me a long time ago.
if you were to draw a picture of a person accentuating the most sensitive parts of the body by drawing them to scale by how sensitive you are, you wouln't see anything but eyeballs.
The reason is becasuse unlike the rest of your body which is wired to your spine, your eyes are attached to your brain and feed it more information than anything else.
So your eyes are just acting out physically part of what the rest of your brain is doing anyway in sleep mode.
So. It seems to me, the motion of your eyes wouldn't neccesarily be random, but would be triggered by the function of whatever housekeeping was going on.
I wonder if anybody's trying to work that out...

and if your ears had muscles I expect they'd be twitching too.

there is something called EMDR, which deals with traumatic events by making you move your eyes around. It sort of worked for me a tiny bit. But part of the problem was that I didn't know which traumatic events were the ones that screwed me up, so I'm still all screwed up :)

shazam, the thing about depression and rem sleep is true but i don't know if they've established a causal relationship. depressed people have a sleep pattern that's different from healthy people. schizophrenics do too. people with autoimmune diseases can have a different sleep pattern too, but what makes that one different isn't the amount of rem sleep but the presence of alpha waves during deep sleep (which means they might as well be awake during the restorative sleep).

nadia - exactly.. From a sleep apnea sufferer point of view. I barely dreamt for several years.. No dreaming whatsoever. Never made it to rem sleep. When they did a sleep study on me I was waking up 70+ times per hour.. ANd I was horribly depressed at this point. Lack of restful and restorative sleep is being considered as a large factor for this..

and on a contrary note:
snoring may not signal breathing problems
