5. Why dream? The functions of brain activation in sleep We have already given our answer to the question of why we dream based on physiological mechanisms: because the brain self-activates in sleep. We have already hinted that dreaming itself may be an epiphenomenon of brain self-activation, so dreaming may occur for reasons that are quite different from those that we would infer from the psychological study of REM sleep dreaming.

3. Evolving trust and cooperation Bats, bees, and chimpanzees In the movies, vampire bats go out at night to feast upon the blood of innocent maidens, but in real life they stick to cattle and horses. Some nights, an individual bat is unlucky and returns to the communal roost hungry. Luckier bats charmingly vomit up some of the blood they’ve harvested, to feed their hungry colleagues. Why do they bother?
