Dreams

I read somewhere that we dream in black and white. How can that be possible? I distinctly remember colors from my dreams, but was it my mind filling in the blanks? Its not like we share our dreams with others that we can confirm whether so and so saw the same colors we did... so what makes the scientists so sure that we do dream in black and white.
What do u guys think?

Well thanks everyone for re-affirming my faith that we do all dream in color despite what the scientists say. =)
Dreams just wouldnt be the same if they were restricted to a black and white world.. after all they are the one place.. where anything and everything can happen and does happen

We don't dream in black and white. Black and white is a concept in photography and television that is specific to the limits of technology. Dreams are not limited by specific technology deficiencies. Simply, color is only "remembered" when it is paramount to the theme of the dream. Your recollection of a dream is limited to the details that drive the vision.

Hi Aditi,

You know, I see lots of dreams and I do remember as well. I have never thought of colors. Next time when I see a dream I will try to recall if any color was there or not and let you know about it.

I think that's a line from a song, I'll have to think hard about who sings it. But my dreams are in color, for sure!

Colored or black and white...
all I know is that I don't want to part with them! As Mark Twain said, " you might cease to exist but they (dreams) live on."
