    Well the scientific understanding is that we have dreams only during REM (rapid eye movement) sleep which occurs only when you reached delta (deep wave) sleep. Brain wave patterns for REM sleep is very much like patterns when we're awake though. So I'm not exactly sure that is called a "lighter" level.

    Lighter sleepers may not necessarily remember more dreams if they don't frequent REM sleep stage as much as a deeper sleeper.

    Hmm...thank you for the information! I had associated my dreaming state with 'lighter' sleep simply because much of the time it's when I am practically awake, or am aware that I am asleep and dreaming (like I have a bit of an analyzer in the background making a little 'check' that I am dreaming...an observation that I can kick back and watch my dream unfold, or impact it in some ways). Is there a distinction between lucid dreaming (which might be more what I'm referring to), and regular dreaming? If so, I do much more lucid dreaming than the other dream types, which I remember less frequently.

    Not only during REM sleep. But mostly, yes. The most vivid and memorable dreams take place in REM.

    Are you sure it is lucid dreaming you're experiencing? In lucid dreams you are indeed aware that it is a dream, and may have a certain level of control over it, depending on how lucid you are. However, you are still, by all means, dreaming. Unaware of your physical body and surroundings.

    Yes, it sounds like I'm lucid dreaming. As you say, I'm aware it's a dream, I have a certain level of control (although much of the time it's minimal/nonexistent...it depends on whether I'm curious to just see it play out however it plays out without my interference, which tends to be the majority of the time, or whether I have a more desirable outcome in mind and want to push it in a certain direction), but am definitely dreaming - I'm not aware of my physical surroundings - i.e. where I'm sleeping, what's going on outside my body, etc.

    So you have them often, and you didn't have to develop this ability or train it in any way? I must say you are quite lucky.

    heres a great book on how to learn how to become aware while dreaming and remember them more often. I own it and recommend it. It helped me a lot on waking up in my dreams and learning how to not fall out of lucid dreaming once i woke up inside my dreams.

    Rarely.

    No matter how interesting the dream was, unless I write it down immediately, I forget the details.

    At best, I remember an aspect of the dream very vaguely.

    Like the other night, in my dream, I think I was burglarizing some lady's house and she caught me and tried to reason with me.

    That's about all I can remember now.

    I remember them rarely. In my dreams lately, I usually swim and dive in a pool, and I enjoy it.

    I do remember my dreams many times. It's probably because I wake up many times during the night in the middle of my dreaming and thus remember the dreams.

    I generally remember my dreams. Not always though. I have hazy recollections in that case. If it's an exceptionally lucid dream, my subconscious is trying to tell me something.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
