7. Dreaming as delirium: sleep and mental illness is a psychotic state, and it is as psychotic a state as we ever experience while awake. The internally generated perceptions have the hallucinatory power needed to make us hopelessly delusional. In the face of their detail and the powerful takeover of our minds, dream hallucinations make it impossible for us to realize that we are in the grasp of an altered state of consciousness. We are sure we are awake and believe our senses – and the associated emotions – despite the incongruities and discontinuities of dream bizarreness, which, were

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.

5. When learning goes wrong Learning can be very adaptive. It allows organisms to anticipate future events, be they nasty or nice, so that they can be either avoided or approached. Learning permits organisms to make responses in order to acquire desirable things, allowing them to gain control over their environment. Learning informs organisms where things will be, and when they will be available. Learning even helps organisms to link together relatively unimportant events in the world, thus permitting them to bind otherwise disparate elements together into a more structured whole. However, the behaviour of organisms is not always adaptive;

4. Cells and molecules of the dreaming brain By 1890, the scientific world was aware that the brain consisted of billions of individual cells called neurons (100 billion at the last count). In the first half of the twentieth century, while sleep and dream science were being prepared at the more global level of the electroencephalograph (EEG), neurobiologists were learning more about neurons than had even been imagined in anyone’s speculative philosophy – and that anyone includes Sigmund Freud, Charles Sherrington, and Ivan Pavlov.
