    Yeah, I think the "Most people dream in black and white" thing has got to be a myth.

    Dreams seem more like memories to me. I can 'picture' things for context, but I can't really say it is either with or without colour.

    I do know that I definitely hash over things which are puzzling me. And just like in dreaming about video games, I sometimes have a breakthrough after the dream.

    And once in a blue moon I'll have a fire dream. That usually means "Pay attention! Right now!" The fire is always very vivd. Someone told me that that represents sexual turmoil, but I'm not sure about that in the context of the type of dreams. More about relationship difficulties.

    I've only had a single black-and-white dream, and that was during an episode of sleep paralysis late one afternoon when I was napping. All my other dreams have been in color. (Sometimes highly saturated color, too.) My dreams have been in CG animation style, cartoons. I've also had dreams where I was a figure in an isometric computer game.

    I dream in colours. Sometimes they are muted, sometimes they are oversaturated. I even get very intricate plays of light and shadow happening in my dreams. In that way they are like movies, but I suspect this only happens because I'm visually and mentally sensitive to how light falls on things.

    I think my mother and brother both dream in colour--except I think my brother would have an absence of green and red since he's colourblind to those hues and has never known what they really look like aside from a sepia tone.

    I don't think any of the three of us are particularly special, but we are all creative in our own ways.

    I don't think I've ever had a dream in black and white... I know I've had a dream in all varying shades of red, but never a complete absence of colour.

    It doesn't make sense that most people wouldn't dream in colour. Colour plays such a vital part of our everyday lives that it would, surely, become infused in the part of the subconscious that creates dream imagery.

    On that note, what do blind people dream about? What do they see? Do they see anything? Or get a vague impression of what happened?

    I dream in color, because I remember several of my dreams where the focus of the dream was some particular vibrant color(s).

    Agreed. We have rods in our eyes that sense only luminance, and cones that sense the separate red/green/blue wavelengths, but I'm pretty sure it isn't processed or stored in the brain as separate luminance and hue. I don't see any reason our brains would have a concept of just luminance, just for dreams.

    I used to practice lucid dreaming all the time back in my younger days. There are daytime exercises you can do to encourage it, and in-dream exercises to maintain it. I actually quit practicing it after a while, because I got a little too good at it, and it started freaking me out a bit (you're always questioning whether you might be dreaming right now). If you're interested, check out LUCID DREAMING.

    Unfortunately all my lucid dreams seem to end when I try to get laid in them...
    You can do some pretty amazing things (like jumping thousands of feet), but if you try to get too unrealistic, your higher cognitive functions take over, and the dream ends.

    I think my dreams have some color, but maybe not as vivid as real life.

    ... Sometimes I think that'll be the closest I get to colorblind, is dreaming. I can recognize colors in the dream, but I still cannot be certain that I dream in ALL color or black and white.. it just sort of IS. and my mind just KNOWS what it is suppose to be.. so I cant tell if I am seeing the color, or assuming the color all the time.
